This was our second time staying at the Ridge and the experience was as good as the last time if not better! What a coincidence we got assigned to the same room (room 207) this year as well. It's got an undisrupted mountain view of the slopes and the gondola so you can imagine how pleasant it was waking up... More

Basics are done well - comfy beds, clean room, nice decor, hearty ski breakfast in English style. Service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Far posher hotels could learn a thing or two here. Staff here are really great. Hotel has a bus which you can ask to take you to the slopes or to a restaurant in the... More

My husband and I fell in love with skiing in Japan but wanted to try somewhere new + had heard a lot about Hakuba. I have particularly high standards and I found researching the right place to stay in Hakuba incredibly difficult; until I found The Ridge. And it delivered everything it said it would. Prior to our arrival, I... More

We had six enjoyable nights at the Ridge. There were three of us and we had two rooms on the second floor, as all the apartments were fully booked for the busy ski period. They were really cosy and well equiped. Close to the Happo-one mountain and just a 10 minutes walk to the Ski lifts. We would highly recommend... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 12 night stay at The Ridge which is essentially a hotel ( there are some apartments l understand ) with hotel type rooms ie no cooking facilities. This was our first time to ski Hakuba and The Ridge exceeded our expectations for the following reasons; 1. We were in room 205 - a twin share room.... More

We have just left the Ridge Hotel and apts after a wonderful holiday thanks to Michelle, Yori, Roki Leith and the rest of the team!!! We booked a 3 bedroom apt for our family (children aged 11,11 and 9). The beautiful apt came with an amazing view where we could actually see skiers coming down the mountain!!! The kids loved...

We stayed in the 4 bed apartment - great for 2 families and very comfy beds. Well equipped with kitchen and 2 bathrooms and 2 separate toilets. Close to slopes but not close enough with small kids so we got the evergreen bus from rhythm every day to ski school and back. You can leave your ski gear at rhythm... More

After doing Niseko for the last 5 years decided to try somewhere different and went to Hakuba for 10 days in January 2016. Unfortunately, it was the worst snow they'd had in 30 years, so our impressions of Hakuba vs Niseko as a ski destination are not positive. However, as far as the accommodation was concerned, The Ridge was excellent.... More
