We stayed at the Hotel Ranga in November for 2 nights and it's a perfect time of year to visit.
Our room was warm and cosy with a great bathroom and although it overlooked the car park turned out not to matter at all beacuse that was the side of the hotel the northern lights were visible from so we could view them in the comfort of our own room.
The hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas and in the evening served a buffet which was delicious.
The staff were really helpful and friendly. They called our car hire company for us when we had a bit of trouble with our car, they took time out in the busy restaurant to explain all the food, the chef came and spoke to us and in the evening they checked the satelitte to show us the best place and time to see the northern light. They even turned off the car park lights to make sure we got the best possible view.
The hot tubs were great fun in the evening with a glass of wine in the freezing temperatures.
If your looking for fresh air, peace and quiet, great food then we'd really reccomed the Hotel Ranga.
