It was hard to choose between here and hotel Ranga for our trip in October. In the end we went for the cheaper option and were so glad we did. Ranga is very close to the main road whereas Laekur is alot more scenic and remote. Having said that the drive to get to the hotel was easy with spectacular scenery.
This is a very friendly family run hotel. The food was excellent and they catered well for our dietry needs (vegan). The room was immaculately clean, simply furnished with everything you could need.
We were very lucky that the clouds cleared and we had a good show of the northern lights on our first night. Even the owner was excited and helped us get good shots and emailed on excellent photos he had taken. There is absolutely no light pollution here and the restaurant lights were turned out for better viewing.
Save yourself a fortune and stay here, you won't be disapointed!
