My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Penke Panke Lodge and had the best time imaginable. It was recommended to us by a friend and Penke lived up to that recommendation and the other reviews on Tripadvisor! We stayed in a Queen Room with en-suite and it was clean, quiet, warm and very comfortable. The proximity of Penke to the Happo-one lifts is also a massive advantage. It is only a very short walk to the Sakka Lifts, and if you want to visit other mountains there is also a bus stop there. There was a wide variety of guests staying whilst we were there from singles, couples, families and small groups. The Penke Bar that is next door was the perfect place to have an evening drink and provided a cool atmosphere for the everyone with the live music that was on each night.
The previous reviews are spot on about the staff. Justin and his team cannot do enough to help out and made our stay so easy. Whether it was booking us dinner and tours, to the daily runs they do to the ATM's/Supermarket/Onsens to organizing the most suitable lift tickets the staff could not be faulted. If like us you want to eat out, the street that Penke Panke is on has quite a few places to eat (Mimasakatei was our pick, the Shabu-Shabu was awesome) or you can eat at the Penke Bar which does excellent food also! If you prefer to cook for yourself, there was a massive share kitchen that seem to be well utilized.
Overall the lodge seemed to cater for many walks of life and suited our stay perfectly. We couldn't fault it and already looking and next at seasons trip!
