Spent 5 nights at Daimaru hotel, staying in a Western/Japanese combination room. The room was spacious and comfortable with an option to sleep on 'standard' beds or on traditional futon beds. There is a fridge in room for cold drinks and a water boiler for tea, coffee (or huge pot noodles!). There's free wifi in the hotel lobby so me and my travel buddies held social media club down there (silence in social media club please!).
Breakfast was a buffet style affair with Japanese food and also we had 'western' food provided (Yogurts, cereal and fresh fruit). There was plenty of food to set us up for the day.
Staff were super friendly with a couple of Aussies blokes helping us who were less than fluent in Japanese. They were there to pick us up from Myoko Kogen train station and shuttle us back at the end of our stay. Location is at the top end of the Akakura Onsen resort with the night skiing slopes only 3-4 minutes walk away (lovely uncrowded slope at night) and ski bus stop for shuttling down to main resorts. The hotel also had discount vouchers to reduce the price of the night skiing pass.
The hotel has an Onsen but we didn't sample this particular facility.
The hotel is a bit rough around the edges and yes a bit of tarting up would be nice to make it more 'modern' and up to date but that certainly doesn't detract from what was a very pleasant stay.
