We stayed in this hotel in February. It was cold outside, just getting a few hours of daylight every day. The staff was very sweet, knowledgeable and welcoming. There was always fresh tea and coffee on hand. The rooms were clean and cute.
They offered an Aurora wake-up service (we had overcast weather all week so we weren't so lucky) and there was a small room with glass windows where you could sit to watch the stars. Overall a very (very!) nice place to stay.
