Great Accomodation, friendly Staff made us feel welcome! We were greeted by Bena and Leanne, who were very helpful and made us feel like we were part of the family. The lodge was very comfortable and meals were excellent!

This was our third trip to Japan and second time to Hakuba. We were a group of 12 friends and family that ranged in age from 11 years to 50 years. On arrival we phoned Justina and she came and picked all of us from Hakuba Bus Station. It took her a couple of trips and we really appreciated it.... More

Having been to Japan every ski season for the last 5 years - this is undeniably the worst place we have stayed. The "Lodge" a term i use loosely, itself actually could be quite nice, but sadly it has been somewhat neglected. The major issues with this place are:- Breakfast is atrocious - noting like described. Please see my picture,... More

I stayed at Elk At Hakuba in 2014 and was very impressed with the excellent value for money this friendly lodge provides. I'm usually on a bit of a budget when I travel so I'm never looking for 5 star but this place delivered everything and more for a budget holiday. I am planning to go back with a group... More

Not long after I immediately regretted my decision to staff there. I will give some short examples of what happened during our stay: - never offered fresh towels, had... More

First time to Hakuba. Found a perfect place to investigate the place from. Close to a fair few excellent restaurants and bars, half way between Happo and Hakuba 47, two big resorts. Friendly, helpful staff, good brekkie too. The fireplace was a good place to relax with a glass of wine. We will be back.

We were some of the first guests at Elk under the new management. The price for the rooms was great! However there were a few issues which don't appear to have improved over subsequent seasons. The heating cut out regularly and was not restarted without constant pestering of management. This meant coming home from a day of skiing to cold... More

Perfect place to stay if you're after a comfortable, warm, cozy (and fun!) ski lodge after a hard day on the slopes or a night out at any of the great restaurants and pubs that are just a short stroll from the front door. The breakfasts there are great too and will keep even the biggest appetites well satisfied throughout... More
