    If there is Aurora Borealis activity in the area then the hotel is in a good location as there is no artificial light in the area. Please note however it is dependent on the local weather as well.

    So sorry for the late reply, I have just noticed the message, I don't think there would be a problem as it really is a relaxed place,, in fact when we was there there was a dog there!
