Great price compared with other accomodation in the area. Great location in echoland with free bus to slopes right out the front. The staff are amazingly helpful even with communication barrier. We tried to tip the manager for helping us on our stay and he refused the money even running away from us after he dropped our bags to bus... More

Stayed here for 5 nights this ski season. Located in the Eco Village, close to Happo (about a 10-15 minute walk) The bus stops right out the front!! Rooms are good with private bathrooms. Twin singles, TV and small fridge. Wifi is good but dropped off in my room during peak use. Lots of good places to eat and drink... More

The rooms we're basic, includes two single beds, TV, kettle, lounge. Bar fridge Also comes with two sets of wabaki and a gown. The beds were comfortable and the heating was quite nice (we actually had to turn it down it worked so well) Breakfast had eggs but no bacon so that's a bit weird, and heaps of deep fried... More

Although it would have been more appropriate to be in The Winter's Tale, we were happy with The Sonnets, a cosy double room with a two-seater sofa, a small dressing-table and a decent sized bathroom with lashings of hot water. The room also had a pleasant view out over the courtyard and the mountains beyond do that we could get... More

Overall, just an absolutely brilliant stay! I'll mention a few cons just so people are aware, but please don't think that they affected my stay, it was just wonderful. The staff were AWESOME and so kind, Echo land is so, so much fun, just brilliant. Cons... The disgusting stink of smoke... Could be easily improved by designating an outside smoking... More

We stayed in the Shakespeare hotel in Jan 2015. The rooms are basic (about on par with Australian hotel/motel standard accomodation. I didn't notice that the carpet was stained and the room certainly didn't sell like smoke (something I was worried about form other reviews). the bathroom was small but had a nice deep bath. Really this accomodation is very... More

Thanks to the person who posted about the Japanese pillows having rice we bought our own or a piece of low foam as a topper pillow. (Same in Tokyo but you get two western and Japanese) Breakfast was ample and... More

Overall a great place to stay which is central to restaurants, bus stops & just walking distance from Happo. Rooms were cosy for 2 ppl. Friendly staff & you can rent all your snow gear there from Dave. Great helpful bloke even for suggestions on places to go. Only advice would be bring your own pillows.

My wife and I have just returned from a week on the snow at Hakuba where we stayed at the Shakespeare. Much has been written about the hard beds and stained carpets already. However our stay was made so much better by the location in Echoland, the convenient and free shuttle services to the slopes and especially by the wonderful... More

Only arrived tonight after having stayed at Hakuba Springs hotel. Will do a detailed review after our week stay. But have a scotch tonight and my son went to see about some ice. The guy at reception have him a cup and showed him where to get icicles from outside. Scotch with fresh icicles - very cool!!!!
