We visited last December and had the room in the block across from the main hotel,very practical room with a separate bedroom for our Son also the lounge had an open fire which we lit in the evening.
The food in the Tunturi was fine, we enjoyed the gala dinner but it was extremely busy but nothing to worry about.
We went to the Irish Pub across the road on both nights but Children aren't allowed in there after 21:00 but the host was a decent guy.
We went with Santas Lapland who I have nothing but good things to say about them, the number of staff available, their cheerfulness etc what a credit and I've recommended them to friends who are going this year.
The day to meet Santa and all the activities will stay in our memories forever the only thing I would of changed is that we should of gone for 3 nights instead of 2.
There's too many good things to report back but if your thinking of doing it you must our Sons time there was amazing (he still goes on about it) and me and the wife couldn't of dreamt how fantastic it was.
One the morning before we left we went sledging down the slope down the bottom of the hill it was brilliant but after about 2 hours we had to go back grudgingly to return the artic kit and leave. TIP if in the block we were drag your kit back on the sledges it's easier than carrying.
I heard terrible things from a friend who stayed at the same hotel with Thomson the previous week they missed activities with staff not around etc but Santas Lapland were faultless.
Loved every minute it's a late review but I thought I'd already posted.
