    Location 3.0 /10

    The Club Scanditours Pohtimo Hotel is located out in the wild, in Sinettä, a half-hour drive north-west from Rovaniemi.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    Standard rooms can accommodate two people, plus a child or two on the convertible sofa, but a family of four may get a little cramped in such a room. We recommend that families hire a 'family' room with a mezzanine on which two single beds are laid out. As for facilities, there is plenty of room to put your coats, leggings and gloves away so that they do not invade the room space. The television, although it has been installed up high, can actually be quite a treat after a long day of exercise. The decoration is absolutely typical of ski apartments with a lot of wood, colourful curtains and a desk for the children's homework. As for the bathrooms they are simple, with a shower, a soap dispenser and a hair-dryer.
    Independent chalets can also be booked: located around the lake, they offer families a different type of holiday - more independent and as noisy as they wish it to be without disturbing anyone else. They are also very spacious and can accommodate up to 10 people.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The hotel is a large wood and stone chalet lost in the middle of the forest overlooking a lake. It consists of a reception hall, which is also used as a dining room, with a fire place for those who get easily cold, a bar for those who get thirsty and some little tables where some people play scrabble and others wait to go on an excursion, or consult their e-mails on the hotel computer that is made available. If there is not enough room for everyone, there is a large reception hall upstairs, which is used for groups and as a second dining hall, that is much much stylishly decorated and laid out. Whereas the three indoor saunas and tiny pool are at the guests' disposal free of charge, private wood-heated saunas can be hired outside. The latter are even equipped with a little stairway leading the way to the freezing lake. A further possibility is to hire a private sauna complete with a lounge and fireplace. In order for this not to become too expensive, it is best to come here as a group, or get together with other customers. Outside, other than the chalets around the lake, you will find a playground for children, which is only to be used in the summer, and a chalet dedicated to outdoor activities. Guests can borrow ice-skating boots for free to go out onto the frozen lake, as well as cross-country skis and snowshoes to explore the surrounding countryside.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The hotel's main restaurant displays the usual chalet decor; large wooden tables, bright-coloured check curtains, a large fireplace, and, of course, the convivial atmosphere which goes with it. One meat dish, one fish dish, greens and carbohydrates, salad, soup and a dessert are served as a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The food is rather ordinary and not very refined, but the good thing is that you will not feel hungry when leaving the table and it is possible to eat healthy as well as satisfying food. Self-service tea and coffee facilities are also available. Meals are different every day and you will always be presented with a local speciality along with a notice explaining the origin of the dish

      • Package deals in février 2013 Posted on 2013-11-26 En famille - Une semaine et plus (Chambre avec vue)

        chambre simple certes mais que j'ai appréciée beaucoup plus qu'une chambre dans un hôtel de luxe à l'ile maurice (le Sands à flic en flac)plus de rangement avec un grand placard, petit placard dans la salle de bains également pour ranger les combinaisons j'ai été aussi très étonnée de la nourriture que j'ai trouvée très bonne, même ma fille m'a fait remarquer que c'était très très bon par rapport toujours à notre précédent séjour à l'ile maurice !!

      • Advantages

        la situation dans un bois avec un lac glacé en bas de l'hôtel où on peut faire du patinage, où démarre aussi la piste de ski de fond, le prêt du matériel pour le ski de fond et les raquettes

      • Disavantages

        un peu dommage que l'on ne fait pas faire aux débutants un petit essai avec les moto neige
