I have been back here twice with the family. Very affordable, clean, warm and excellent location for skiing. All you need when you are out skiing all day every day. Complimentary onsen (hot springs) passes are perfect for sore legs every night! Ski shuttle for all mountains stops right outside.

This was a clean and reasonably priced lodge in the mid range. Close to bus stops and restaurants and bars. Closer enough to walk into Hapo shops. I would recommend for families, couples and a mates trip away.

Stayed here for 4 nights in Feb 2016. The rooms were fine, could do with a bit of re decorating, but nothing wrong with them. The staff were very helpful, the manager even took us back to the train station when we checked out. Skiing in the area is very good, there is a free shuttle bus right outside the...

Hotel was slightly old but very clean. Rooms were well insulated and warm. Hotel staff were very friendly and knew enough english to satisfy any request. There is free WiFi in the downstairs area, however it does not reach many rooms. If you're worried about always having the internet check out travelsimdirect.com There was a bus stop right outside that...

Twin singles, TV and small fridge. Wifi is good but dropped off in my room during peak use. Lots of good places to eat and drink...

The beds were comfortable and the heating was quite nice (we actually had to turn it down it worked so well) Breakfast had eggs but no bacon so that's a bit weird, and heaps of deep fried...

Although it would have been more appropriate to be in The Winter's Tale, we were happy with The Sonnets, a cosy double room with a two-seater sofa, a small dressing-table and a decent sized bathroom with lashings of hot water. The room also had a pleasant view out over the courtyard and the mountains beyond do that we could get...

Overall, just an absolutely brilliant stay! I'll mention a few cons just so people are aware, but please don't think that they affected my stay, it was just wonderful. The staff were AWESOME and so kind, Echo land is so, so much fun, just brilliant. Cons... The disgusting stink of smoke... Could be easily improved by designating an outside smoking...
