This place is perfect in every way!!! Scenery, great staff, beautiful place, and amazing food and drinks!!! A very welcoming place!

Unique--seems to be in the middle of nowhere in a field by the ocean, yet is fairly luxurious with a very nice dining room and friendly/helpful staff. Owners at front desk were particularly nice and helpful to us.

Clean, modern, hip. A joy to stay at. Helpful, pleasant staff.

Clean facilities, friendly staff, delicious breakfast, great points to see the northern lights.

Excellent staff who went out of their way to make our stay the best possible. Offered to wake us during the night if the Northern Lights appeared. Beautiful facility, would stay again and highly recommend.

My guaranteed prepaid reservation got cancelled, so I was only able to stay one of the two days I had planned to be there. We loved the place but sure wish we could have been there two days as planned

This lovely hotel was a great surprise. It has beautiful architecture and is well appointed. The restaurant was fantastic. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. They even provided information about viewing Norther Lights and woke us up when there were some lights, which you could view from the hotel parking lot. Overall, a great hotel, the little gem you hope to stumble upon when traveling. My only complaint is that the beds are so firm, making them uncomfortable. It was like sleeping on a piece of plywood with a sheet on top. My husband wasn't so bothered by this, but I got very little sleep. I hope they will consider changing the mattresses. Then this hotel would get 5 stars.

Gem in the middle of no where. My google map worked but hard to find without help. Very contemporary,clean 4 star hotel with restaurant.

Nice hotel in a great location, with wonderful personalized service.

Very good hotel Can see sky very clear without light contamination Recommend to admission But the road is not very good to drive a car

This hotel is amazing and the staff are very resourceful. I can’t wait to go back
