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

The evening buffet is pretty average. We didn't find the selection of mains to be that enticing and the quality of the overall food was low. There is a chocolate fountain which is fun.

We had a late dinner reservation at about 7.30pm on Christmas day. I was very disappointed with the buffet selection. The food did not look at all very attractive. The turkey was dry. Most of the items were not replenished quickly enough.

Hardly any choice. Nice location. Poor value for the price. Much better options available on the mountain. It was a disappointment and we expected more from The Hilton.
