This was our second time to Lapland with Santa's Lapland. The first time we stayed in the Riekonlina and loved the hotel. This time we chose the Tunturi hotel - specifically the Gaelias wing.
The rooms in this wing are just gorgeous. Gorgeous building, lovely views, very large rooms which are brand new with your own private sauna. Perfect for a glass of wine in when your child has fallen asleep. Can not fault the rooms in this wing - and can not fault this wing at all.
After having dinner at the main the main Tunturi building however is not nice and I was glad we were not staying there. It was down trodden and pretty grim. We didn't like the Christmas meal here - it was too big and loud and like a Butlin's camp. The Christmas meal at Reikonlina was much better - small and intimate and felt more Christmassy.
The main Tunturi building is a 2 minute walk from they Gaelias and we didn't find this a problem. Breakfast was served in the Gaelias wing and was lovely - very calm and reserved and certainly more upmarket than the main Tunturi building.
If you are unsure where to book for your Lapland trip my choice would be the Gaelias wing and then the Reikonlina - stay away from the main Tunturi building.
