My wife and I stayed here recently for 2 nights in Japanese style western room. One word sums up the stay - luxury. The level of service from all staff we came in touch with was top class, ie. front desk, restaurant staff, shuttle drivers, housekeeping. The quality of food at the buffet for both dinner and breakfast was excellent and stations quickly replenished (of course very much Asian themed). Our room was large, spacious, very comfortable and quiet. Though the hotel is actually in Yobito, which is approx 8km outside Abashiri itself, the hotel shuttle bus provides connections to all the main atttractions eg drift ice cruise, museums. Also little touches such as the open fireplace in the bar for toasting your own marshmallows add an intimate cosy feel to the hotel. Would we stay here again if visiting Abashiri area? Most certainly!

Thank you very much for coming to Hokutennooka Abashiri Lake Tsuruga Resort. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for staying with my wife in a Japanese-Western room. We would like to share this joy with our staff as a motivation for the hospitality of our staff. Even the staff who do not speak English well has told our customers that they are fully aware of the fact that they are fully aware of their smiles and care, and we are very pleased that they have achieved results. In addition, especially in Japan, there are many customers from other countries and other countries in Japan, so winter roads are difficult for travel by rental car as in the summer, so we are also carrying out transportation to the city in conjunction with secondary transportation, It is also a place that is connected to the good access in that amount. It is a long way, but if you have a chance again, please come and visit us again. Thank you for your contribution.

Impressive breakfast and dinner with an incredible variety and a vast array of options; great location; friendly personnel; nice spa with a small external pool; a beautiful sauna; a cozy and intimate atmosphere in front of the open fireplace. Just one minor set-back; the rooms on the third floor are somewhat gloomy and dark, they look outdated and need some refurbishment whilst other rooms, especially on the higher floors, are in a modern Japanese style and they blend much better with the general atmosphere of the whole premises. Could it be that the hotel is undergoing a progressive improvement? I therefore suggest that you book a room in the new wing on floors 4 and higher.

Thank you very much for coming to Kitatennooka Abashiri Lake Tsuruga Resort. We are very pleased to receive your evaluation of the hotel's facilities and atmosphere that incorporates Okhotsk culture, as well as the contents of meals in the morning and at night. In addition, as offered, we have been carrying out a sequential renovation from the upper floor, but with regard to the lower floor, we have been allowed to set a low price in terms of charges while carrying out the face-to-face replacement, while including in the future renovation plan, I would like to consider it. We are looking forward to your visit again, even though it is a long way away. Thank you for your contribution.

This is the first Tsuruga of two which we stayed at during our 9 days Hokkaido trip. There's something about this hotel collection - both were unique accommodations, welcoming and had great personal service. Lake Abashiri Tsuruga Resort was quiet luxury in the middle of (almost) nowhere. The location was not a big drawback since we drove, and this was really a rest stop than a destination for us. The hotel prepared activities such as harp sessions by a musician. There is also a small ramen shop downstairs where we had a late night snack. There's a small fireplace where you can toast your own marshmallows. Dinner and breakfast offered scrumptious spreads. Onsen was huge and relaxing. It felt like time slowed in this resort.

This hotel / resort is an amazing mixture of luxury and the surreal. It feels like a spa resort and yet caters for coach loads of tourists visiting for the sea ice. That said, the only time it feels busy is at meal times when you can eat your way through an amazing array of food - from Western to traditional Japanese - but the staff do a great job looking after everyone. The rooms are a modern take on a Ripken, with beds and beautiful traditional decor. The spa feel comes through with robes for the onsens and a huge array of creams and lotions in your room. It also has a two huge shops selling everything from winter gear, to souvenirs and foodstuffs....baked Camembert anybody?!! Although most bizarre is the chair room.....yes, a room full of different designer chairs with meditation music playing (we were the only ones in there)....whilst upstairs there was a karaoke bar. There were times when I felt like I’d fallen down the rabbit hole with Alice! So we liked it for all its quirks but sadly it is out of town. This means drop offs by the shuttle bus (but you have to get taxis back). For all the trips the staff do we all thought a simple regular timetable of buses would be useful and more efficient. You can’t book picks ups even though we offered to pay (apparently no one had ever asked them this before!!) Lovely friendly staff with a number of English speakers to help you out. The location is the reason for 4 and not 5 rating.

This is the fourth nights and second hot spring hotel we stayed. This is more like the hotel we expected very comfortable large room and plenty of space. Very comfortable bedding. I don't have to bring towels down to the spa. There is comfortable chairs outside the 大浴場. There is a separate foot 足湯. After all we are happy to see similar standards compared to other good hot spring at this country side.

Whilst this is almost certainly the best lodgings that Abashiri has to offer, it is somewhat remotely located in a rural community at least a kilometre distant from the Lake foreshore and a good 10-minute drive to Abashiri city and any other sites of interest. Despite that, it’s a good hotel that was convenient and comfortable for our couple nights although there were a few irritations that deprived it of excellence in our estimation. The good: the front door was welcoming and the front desk was polite and efficient with good English. Our Japanese Western non-smoking twin room #932 was clean, quiet, spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Everything expected was there and it mostly worked as expected. The décor was tasteful contemporary Japanese. The twin beds – indeed, two double beds on a raised platform – we comfortable and the linens plush. The pillows were also firm but comfortable. The bathroom ensemble was reasonably roomy and servicable. The included WiFi worked well on all our devices and parking on the hotel’s expansive grounds was included. We took the half board option which included an expansive, well serviced and good quality buffet dinner and breakfast taken in the hotel’s Cota Restaurant. The not so good: the low-slung work desk & chair in our room is an acquired taste that I haven’t yet acquired. The bathroom has a vestibule affair with washbasin and vanity which has been agreeably renovated along with the guest room but the bath/shower/toilet suite is of considerably greater vintage and whilst it mostly worked OK was a very abrupt step down-market. On the bathroom subject, the hot water took ages to arrive so it was necessary to run the tap for many minutes before any sign of warmth was evident in the water supply. The room controls (AC etc.) have neither English nor any translation so are of the fumble thru variety or those absent Japanese literacy.

Very easy to give this hotel a 5 star review. The greeting that started at the parking lot, the receptionist at the check-in who spoke a perfect English, showed us around and led us to our room, the decor, the room, the complimentary drinks, fireplace and marshmallows in the lobby, the spa of course, did I mention the music room, the Harpist who played magnificently, the outdoor foot bath, and the meals! Must go back!

We stay 1 night in the room 210. It has a private onsen outdoor that is very beautiful. The decoration of the room is superb with a lot of facilities in the room. The front desk service is brilliant. She is very service mind. The Kaiseki food is the best. The hotel atmosphere also very nice. We do recommend this hotel for romantic couple or family.

Before I start my review I would like to thank Miura for making our stay extra special. Her English is superb and she communicated all that was needed and more to help us around the hotel. Additionally, I noticed that the senior personnel was in-charge of the night desk. Kudos to the hotel for hiring them. My family and I (5 adults) enjoyed Hokuten no Oka Abashiriko Tsuruga Resort. The onsen, the outdoor footpath, the marshmallows over the wood fire though the smell of burning wood does linger). The buffet spread was alright (The spread could have been a better for the Japanese food / raw fish options.) but the perfect soft-serve ice-cream and option for nabe was good.
