Wow, what an amazing place! We spent 1 week here and didn't want to leave. We booked this place because of the fantastic and flawless reviews it had and it defiantly lived up to every single one of those positive reviews. This place is run by a beautiful Japanese family, they're so welcoming, caring and do everything they can to... More

My partner and I had such an amazing time staying at Skala. We not only felt so welcomed by the lovely couple who run it, but also had fantastic breakfast and dinner. Convenient to restaurants, shops and shuttle bus stops. We are coming back again next year for sure!

The hotel is a family running business. The host of the hotel are very considerate. He picked us up and discussed the ski gears rental with us. Then he took us straight away to the ski rental shop. The ski gears are in very good conditional and the price is better than the ski resort's price. The couple of the... More

Such a comfortable and welcoming place. The Pension is owned and ran by a lovely family who do everything they can to help. We were greeted and picked up from the train station by Usamu (I hope I've spelt that correctly). My partner needed to rent ski equipment so Usamu was more than happy to stop on the way back...

The husband freely offered to drive us to the rental office to pick up our gear, arranged for the hire company to pick up the gear and after checking... More

My family went to the Grove Inn Skala in August. Our boys are 10 and 12 years old. We had to get two rooms, but were happy they had adjoining rooms. One of the rooms was much more modern than the other. It has a super high-tech bathroom and a very modern overall look. The other room had a clean... More

Owners are the highlight of this place. They are very friendly and helpful- drove me to restaurants and hiking trails for free and gave me good advice. The care about their guests. The lady is a great trained chef and the meals were filling and delicious. I recommend coming in the summer for the hiking!

Five keen skiers from Australia stayed for a week in this lovely inn. The warm greeting and wonderful service made our Hakuba holiday perfect. The family who own and run the inn are delightful and ever helpful The food delicious with great breakfasts and the evening meals were a treat. I can't recommend it highly enough.
