As soon as we were collected from the bus drop off point we were made to feel very welcome. Rooms very clean and beds very comfortable. Staff really helpful and couldn't do any better to help with anything. Breakfasts are delicious with both hot and cold options. Private bookings of onsen can be made, just what is needed after a...

An unusual title for a 5-star rating, yes I know. But when I return to Hakuba, I do not want to have to miss out on staying at Double Black again. Double Black exceeded my expectations in every aspect. The location is perfect. Although not in the middle of Hakuba Happo town, it is a short and magical walk through... More

Excellent lodge. Service and staff extremely helpful, nothing was ever a problem. Rooms are very a mix of Japanese and western styles. Very chic. Ensuites are small but more than adequate. Housekeeping tidies your room each day. On site onsen with all the amenities. Restaurant is fabulous. Food is excellent. Great bar. Morning shuttle to the slopes. Overall a great... More

Great staff, but management is a let down. We spent NYE at the hotel, which had a set menu dinner. The MGR seemed disinterested in creating a vibe at the hotel for the evening and left to go to the pub down the road. Buffet breakfast is included in the price of the hotel, one morning the manager brought his... More

We stayed at this lovely small hotel for 7 days over Christmas and what a magical experience it was. The previous reviews have said it all so well already so I won't repeat them! It really is a great place to stay. I would recommend staying at Double Black even if you are not skiing/snowboarding - it's in a lovely... More

We just had a wonderful week skiing staying at Double Black. A small lodge feel, nestled among the woods in Wadano. The place was surrounded 2m deep in snow! Not the normal accommodation type we normally stay in, but this place was fantastic. A great location in Hakuba, with Wadano having a great vibe and lots of great places to... More

We spent five nights over Christmas at Double Black & could not have been happier. It's situated in the Wadano area of Hakuba & is within walking distance to some great restaurants. However the free shuttles to Happo One & Iwatake ski fields was a much appreciated service. The staff, especially Julie, Matt & Alec were sensational & most welcoming.... More

Great stay at the Double Black Hotel this year! I visited last year and was impressed with the hotel. This year things seem to have even stepped up a notch. Clean comfortable rooms with ensuite bathrooms and there was a nice view of the forest from my room. The showers had good hot water which was welcome after a day... More

My wife and kids (8 & 10) spent a week at Double Black in mid February. It was such a great place. Rooms were small but beds were great and we never spent any time in our room anyway. When we weren't skiing were catching up with all our new best friends at the bar/lounge - the place had such... More
