  • Although self contained cabins there is no facility to wash laundry. Lots of construction…

    Summer in Arctic

    The hotel was wonderful. However some of the attractions were closed for the season. It would have been nice to have been informed of this prior to booking. 2 nights was too long as the deer far a Nd husky farm were closed along with all the museums closing on a Monday. Travellers like to know these things before booking.

    What an experience!

    The atmosphere at Santa Claus Village has to be seen to be believed. Going after the Christmas and New Year rush meant that some of the shops were shut for their holidays but there was also reduced crowds. The cottage in the village was roomy with self contained kitchen. The cottage was heated so was alway cosy. The village hire snow suits and boots for a reasonable price but they are so worth it if heading there in the snow months. Cost us €60 for 2 sets of suit and boots for 4 days/3 nights use.

    Very nice Lapland hotel experience.

    We spent a very enjoyable time in the hotel and village. Certain parts are under reconstruction but it was a great experience.

    I loved the cottage, was in the great condition, looked like everything was new. Bed was super comfortable, kitchenette was equipt enough to make a small dinner, sauna was amazing, though 1 wierd thing for me was is that TV above bedhead. We were picked up at the airport at around 10 in the evening and were dropped off right at the cottage (were told to check in in the morning which was super nice), were also picked up at the cottage for the drive back to the airport. Stuff at front desk was extremely helpful and nice. Breakfast was excellent, but only had dinner (fantastic!) at 3 elfs (hence can't comment much on ither places).

    Incredible stay - 100% Recommend

    Although Santa Claus Holiday Village is promoted on package holidays for Christmas for families, my boyfriend and I went on a couples trip with no kids and stayed in a Superior Cottage A for five nights. After booking through Hotels.com, we sent a messsge to the property to request a cottage down the back near the forest & they promptly responded that they had made a note of this. We were taking the overnight train from Helsinki to Rovaniemi, but on arrival in Helsinki, discovered that the airline had lost our luggage & would send to our hotel once it was found. I messaged the hotel to let them know in case our luggage arrived there before us, & reception replied immediately saying no problem. When we arrived at SCHV the next morning, we were greeted by Marjanna on reception - she is an incredibly friendly, warm and fantastic person to deal with. Always smiling and happy to help! She was able to get us into our cottage at midday instead of 4pm which was much appreciated! Also must highly commend Henna on reception for how helpful, chatty and friendly she was too. We’ve rarely felt such genuine warmth from hotel reception staff and could have chatted with both of them all day. SCHV took care of us while knowing our luggage was lost with gestures that absolutely made our trip, which they werent required to provide but which only further reflected the high regard we hold this hotel in. Cottages are warm& cozy - beautiful surroundings - we’d love to go back!!!

    Lovely stay at the hotel. The value for money is fantastic: the staff, the grounds, the location, and the amenities. Such a magical place to stay!

    You could not control the heat. It was so hot that we did not sleep the four nights we were there. You could not regulate it yourself. They did nothing about the problem

    This property was the best choice for us to bring our son to meet Santa Claus. Near Santa park and inside the village where he can be met with no appointment. The cottage was large, they dropped us right in front of it and they took our luggage when we left.
