When we checked into the hilton hotel, we were asked if we wanted to reserve for the buffet dinner. We had a tiring drive heading into niseko and as such, decided just to stay in-house for the dinner. The spread was very simple and not very impressive, in view of the fact that it was hilton. One thing to note... More

Just about the only restaurant and bar open in the Hilton in early December 1400 yen for a SMALL glass of wine (£10 or $13) - rip--off! staff great as elsewhere in the hotel.

I would recommend if you book the Hilton with breakfast package. The breakfast includes western food and also eastern food. The opening hour is 6:30-10:30 AM. Just relax and enjoy the snow view here. :)

We enjoyed the buffet at Melt. It was very comprehensive and we received a 20% discount when we checked in. While the cost isn't cheap the amount was pretty good and overall seemed good value. Having said this, if a buffet was not your thing you'd be better off going to Hirafu village to enjoy more options that are Japanese... More

I went to Melt lunch time buffet six times last season because there was a wide choice of fresh food and it was good value at JPY 2,424 per person. This year it is JPY 3,024 per person. A whopping 24.75% price rise! Unsurprisingly, there are fewer patrons this year. The servings in the salad area are smaller. The food... More

I stayed with a group of friends for 5 days at the Hilton and breakfast was included in our room rate. Breakfast is buffet style with tons of cuisines from around the world with 40% being Japanese. The service is slow for drinks and you may have to ask multiple times.

I think they need to look at the restaurant as a complete experience as its used for breakfast lunch and dinner, they need more staff to clean or tidy. It feels dirty, seating is dirty, glass is dirty etc

Limited food selection that is average at best. Expensive and doesn't compare well with similar buffet style eating in other Japanese hotels
