Buustamons Fjallgard
Ranked #6 of 17 Speciality Lodging in Are
Reviewed 11 January 2017

Rooms aswell as common areas were small and cozy. Theres fireplaces in almost all larger (common) rooms. Staff is very helpful with the basic service they provide. There is no staff at nights and dont expect hotell standard (no ice machines or shoe polishers here). Everything is really basic except for the sauna which is really modern and up to date. I loved the interior environment and the external location far away from all the partying thats normally going on in Åre. There is no road to the place but you get picked up by a bandwagon or snow mobile at the parking. The breakfast was amazing and the breakfast hostess was really serviceminded, helpful and friendly. Lunches are expensive and dinners are extremly expensive and only offers a 3-course menu (no choices or options). Wine assortment was good and prices only slightly over average.

Room Tip: The smallest rooms are really small with a 120cm bed and a 90cm bed on top. No toilet in the rooms...

Buustamons offered a very unique experience from start to finish. When we arrived with our bags we took the snow cat up the mountain to the lodge which instantly feels cosy and warm, despite the snow storm outside.

Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful - from booking reservations at restaurants and telling you which lifts are open.

The accomadation is very cosy with a mix of bunkbeds and double beds, Bathrooms are shared but kept very clean and I didn't once have to wait dispite them being at full capacity,

The spa is a great added bonus at the end of any ski day. With two large hot tubs and a sauna. (Also drinks for you to purchase should you like to relax with a beer)

The breakfast buffet was definitely designed to prepare you for a day of skiing! Filled with meats, cheese, freshly baked bread, porridge and eggs. You can even make your own waffles.

We stayed for NYE and had an amazing three course meal in the restaurant with great wine. We then took torches at up the mountain to watch the fireworks - great way to bring in 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would recommend to anyone visiting Are.

The hotel has a fantastic location, and is only accessible by ski or scooter. The rooms are very nice and we're extremely clean. The only slight issue is that they are not ensuite but the communal facilities are kept very clean. The spa area is wonderful after a days skiing with a sauna and hot outdoor baths. Also the food at the restaurant is fantastic, the reindeer and burger are stand out dishes. Wonderful place with wonderful staff.

I loved staying at Buustamons Fjällgård, if only for just one night and a conference. Up in the mountains, this cozy hotel and restaurant can be reached by tracked vehicle during the winter. The rooms are small but comfortable and very clean and the hotel consists of a main house and two other cabins.

I shared a double room with a colleague and we slept in very comfortable bunk beds. Clean towels, bathrobes and slippers included. The view from the room was outstanding!

Staying there for a conference, our meals were included so I had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant. Great food, cozy atmosphere and attentive service. The breakfast buffet consisted of all sorts of bread, butter, ham and cheese, fresh tomatoes and cucumber slices, jams, cereals of all kinds, milk, yoghurt, coffee, tea, apple and orange juice, delicious oatmeal, eggs and more, so pretty much a great start for the day.

Underneath the main cabin there is a distillery, you share the bathroom with the other visitors and there is also a spacious relaxing sauna and an outdoor hot tub, which is great fun in the winter. The bravest will get warm in the tub first and then roll around in the snow.
My only small complaint would be that the heat isn't always on so the rooms may get cold at times. Even if the staff will kindly ask you to save on the energy, you can naturally turn it up yourself if you feel cold and there are warm blankets in the room.

Apart from the beautiful views and very pleasant atmosphere, where you can walk around in warm socks, what I really appreciated was the fact that I could order a glass of alcohol-free wine for dinner. Not too many places offer that alternative and I was very pleased to find out that Buustamon does. Big thumbs up for that!

I would definitely stay there again and I can recommend this hotel for both business and leisure trips. Åre town can easily be reached, either by a short walk plus taxi ride from the Buustamon parking lot or tracked vehicle and taxi. It's a perfect choice for a romantic getaway in the mountains or a fun trip with friends.
