8/10 Very good

Birthday trip
Stayed for 3 nights, booked a twin room, when we arrived the back door didn't lock. They had no available twin rooms so accepted a double room for the 1 night, instead of staying in the original room. So all in all we ended up in 3 room throughout our stay. The rooms were all big enough for the 2 of us, they were all clean and comfortable, only downside was the pillows were too flat for our liking, but we made it work. The hot tubs were closed so unable to comment. There was parking on site and we never had issues finding spaces. Before we arrived they emailed to let us know they had a Christmas dinner event during our stay, we booked a table and it was such s lovely experience. The chef walked us through the buffet, explaining all the different dishes, at the end the northern lights were visible and the chef came over to let us know when was a welcomed surprise. Plus we managed to see the northern lights all 3 nights that we were there. Breakfast was included, they had s nice mix of items available, from cook your own waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, bread, fruits, meats and cheese, vegetables, and a mix of spreads, as well as a variety of hot drinks. All the staff were welcoming and friendly, I would definitely return.

Free hot tub, not so busy. Convenient location, easy check in and out. Room cleanness is good. Dinning in the restaurant is below average comparing to other hotel, only limited choices and tasted not better than home cook. Quality of breakfast just so so, enough to fill your tummy though.

2/10 Poor

Terribly maintained property, please don’t stay here! Very dirty and smelly bathroom with a water flooding situation! Bedroom itself was worse than a motel room. Overall avoid at all costs!

It's okay just stay for on night. Good that comes with breakfast. Hot tub is far way from room. In general the building is very old.

This was a great overnight stop for us on our way to the south coast. The hotel was clean and the room was big, we loved having a walk out door to search for the northern lights. The staff was incredibly nice. The breakfast was a bit lacking but it was nice to even have a breakfast at all. Free parking as well. Overall a very pleasant stay!
