Windy lodge is perfectly located and had everything you need for a great ski holiday in Hakuba. The rooms are warm and comfortable and the owners were very friendly. We had a room with an ensuite and our friends used the share bathrooms, but being such a small lodge, you never had to wait to use the bathrooms. There are... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during our visit to Hakuba. The staff here are friendly and made us feel very welcome. Language wasn't a barrier as everybody understood and spoke good English. There were 4 of us staying in an ensuite room. Beds were comfortable and well insulated. Only gripe was that the ensuite toilet was quite cold and wasn't... More

We stayed here for 9 nights (Dec 2014) while skiing in the Hakuba area. The lodge owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. They gave advice on ski slopes, ski passes, onsens, drove us to our dinners and also helped with making dinner reservations. The whole atmosphere is like a homestay and having stayed at many home-style B&Bs, Windy... More

Staff is super friendly and helpful! They helped us figure out how to ski, get massages, and see the snow monkeys. They offered up sleds and fun with puppies for our kids. They picked us up from the bus station and delivered us downtown. Walking distance to skiing and to the shuttle bus for downtown. Laundry machines and hot bath... More

Staff were great and very helpful at windy lodge, rooms were nice but basic. There was a cozy common room to read the newspaper, and there was also free WiFi. Windy lodge also has a restaurant which you can go to where they cook delicious meals and also give you your meat raw so you can have a hands-on experience... More

I have never been to a hotel where the owners are so involved with their guests, there is nothing that they won't do for anyone. The Lodge itself is pretty basic but has everything you need. All the staff are very friendly and help organise anything you may want to do. They take you to and from any where in... More

I first stayed at Windy in 2010 when it was recommended to me by a friend. I followed up in 2011 and stayed there again this year (2014)in February. The value for money is exceptional and absolutley nothing is too much trouble for the owners Akira & Meiko. Despite the fact that the extremely popular Windy Kobeya restaurant is part... More

Windy lodge is the place to stay in Hakuba! Literally a 100m walk to Happo-One ski resort, with free shuttle bus stops next door to get to all the other ski resorts. The staff are so helpful and accommodating- one of our party got tonsilitis and they drove her to the doctor and physio and back and made appointments for... More

The lovely couple which run this little lodge are absolutely wonderful! They go out of their way to help you and are happy to help organise anything you need! They have very good English skills and hire a number of English speaking staff who are all very helpful. The location is perfect, next door to a bus stop which can... More

Me and 2 mates stayed here during the early snow season (Dec 10-15) in 2 twin rooms which was during the early-season. Rooms were perfect; clean, spacious and well heated, ensuite bathroom was good, no problems with hot water or water water pressure and a lounge area downstairs provides a cozy place to relax if you don't feel like going...
