Modern comforts, beautiful location, and large, comfortable beds. Definitely recommend staying here if you have the opportunity! We enjoyed watching the northern lights, while a light snow fell, all from the comfort of the jacuzzi. Having a spacious, warm room to retire to afterwards was wonderful. (late Jan '17)
