We stayed at the white rose inn and had the most amazing stay. The pension is warm cosy and inviting. The amenities and common areas are stylishly decorated and recently renovated and having a little bar next door was the icing on the cake. Very generous and friendly hosts. We felt at home with little baby William and of course Ollie the mountain dog making an appearance. Nothing is too much trouble and with regular shuttles to and from the slopes, dinner and recommendations for restaurants the service is second to none. We had an awesome stay and will definitely return.

We stayed for 7 nights at the lovely White Rose Inn. Ayami and Rob are very friendly and helpful hosts and the inn is extremely comfortable, warm and inviting. Great amenities, comfy beds, friendly staff and free parking, we enjoyed our time here while we explored the area. The pension village is just a short drive to Appi ski resort. Highly recommended.

Stayed at the White Rose Inn. Luved it. Rob, Ayami and all the staff were more than helpful and most welcoming. Our room had an ensuite plenty of space warm and toasty heated floors. Food was Western, breakfast is buffet style and plentiful. Dinner is good quality very filling and the bar has everything you could need from an aperitif to a fine Japanese whiskey. Can't wait to visit again

We went to Appi kogen to snowboard/ski in the fantastic offpiste powder. Picked White Rose since it looked cosy and it truly was! We stayed for 4 nights. We are so happy we stayed here! The sweetest and very service minded couple run this place. Ayami is a very good cook and made us the best meal every night. The room was clean and the beds comfy. The whole house is heated through the floor so its warm, even so you get to borrow slippers. The bathroom is like a mini-onsen. They know a lot about the area and could provide us with very useful information. We're definitely going return to the White Rose!

We have just had a week with Rob and Ayami. We have done a lot of traveling in Japan, and it was one of the best experiences we have ever had. The recently renovated rooms are very comfortable and warm. The friendly, family style atmosphere is so relaxing after a big day out and about and the food that was served up night after night impressed every time. From traditional English Cottage Pie to Japanese Nabe, it was just delicious and fantastic every time. The deep onsen-style hot baths were a real highlight after a big day out on the slopes. Appi Kogen is NOT for the party animal and those who want to go out and drink in bars each night. It is a quiet area, but the skiing is absolute first class. White Rose Inn is so close to the ski fields (10mins walk or 3mins in the shuttle bus), and the mountain offers something for every experience level. We are really looking forward to our next visit to Ayami and Rob and can't wait to get back to see them again next year. Cannot recommend White Rose Inn highly enough!

The White Rose Inn, at Appikogen, is a lovely quaint Inn. Complete with a tranquil Japanese style bedroom and modern western bedrooms. Wooden and Marble bath tubs to soak those sore muscles after a day on the slopes. It is minutes from Appi Kogen Ski resort. The hosts Robert and Ayami are lovely people and cater to your every need, and you can relax in a comfortable, fun environment and just enjoy yourself. I highly recommend The White Rose Inn and will definitely return.

Great location only metres to the slopes and run by a lovely husband and wife team. The accommodation was excellent and the meals and service were 1st class. The staff were friendly and very accommodating from picking us up from the train to delivering us to the slops. Every detail was catered form, I can thoroughly recommend The White Rose in if you plan on skiing at Appi Kogen.

We just got back from a sensational 5 days with Rob and Ayami at the White Rose. We really had an amazing Japanese ski experience that went well beyond the skiing itself, immersing ourselves in the local culture, some great food and plenty to drink as well! Firstly Appi Kogen is not your typical ski resort - over-run by loud Australians - it is much quieter and way less crowded. No queues despite amazing snow and wonderful terrain for both skiers and snowboarders alike. The staff and locals in the resort itself were really helpful and friendly making ski rentals etc really easy .Rob and Ayami welcomed us to their cozy hideaway which is a short two or tree minute shuttle away from the slopes in the morning - probably a five minute walk if you wanted to. A quick call to Rob at the end of the day and the van turned up like magic within a few minutes. Their hospitality was second to none with activities and cuisine blending east and west ranging from learning to prepare sensational Gyoza through to sessions at the bar with Shepherds pie, a traditional girls only session at the nearby hot springs, or sitting in front of the open wood fire after a long soak in one of their two amazing traditional Japanese baths. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with a homely touch and heated floors through out the lodge. A big drying room, laundry facilities and also fast wifi for staying connected if needs be. We even had a few great sessions in front of the TV during a blizzard thanks to a great selection of Netflix movies. A great place for couples and families - relaxing and cozy - with great hosts who went out of their way to make sure everything was just perfect during our say. We can't wait to book again for next year - and we'll take the kids too!
