It's an ok place to explore Lake Kussharo, Lake Mashu areas . There's a little garden in front of the hotel fronting the lake .
Location is abit of a drive , but u need to rent a car to get around anyway. There's nothing much nearby, We got sick of hotel buffets and chose to drive 20 mins to the nearest town for dinner. Room is a tad old. The onsen was ok. Good for a night , I wouldn't stay more .

Stayed: July 2017, traveled with family

This hotel is next to lake Kussharo. Our room is overlooking the lake,so the view is superb. The service is standard. (to be honest, Shirotoko Prince hotel staff are more friendly).
Onsen is on the third floor. There is one indoor onsen and one outdoor. It is not so big compared to onsen in Shirotoko Prince hotel Kazanamiki. Also food was better in Shirotoko Prince hotel. (from foreigner's eyes).
The hotel has facilities such as Karaoke, table tennis, game room, convenience store and souvenir shop.

We stayed here for a night as we worked our way south from Rausu on a ten day trip of Hokkaido. The hotel is huge and in many ways impersonal, with the staff lacking some of the charm of traditional Japanese hospitality. They are however helpful and efficient.The reception space may affect this as it is has no real warmth. Everything about this place is big with the dining room equipped to seat many people. The rooms are spacious and have wonderful views out over the lake, we arrived on a grey rainy day but awoke to a dusting of snow on the mountains backing the lake, with one of the first falls for the season. We used the onsen which again was large and very well equipped but lacked the natural charm of other places we visited. We had the buffet breakfast and dinner during the stay and found that the range and variety of food was excellent. Because of the size of the room it did not seem crowded despite coach groups etc but I imagine it could be a bit of a crush during peak season. I was particularly impressed with the gentleman who had soft serve ice-cream on corn flakes for breakfast, not nearly as healthy as natto but what the hell, he was on holiday. All in all it is a large hotel that whilst somewhat impersonal is well run and efficient and is a good base in that area of Hokkaido.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the views but all rooms seem to have lake views.

This is a good base for exploring Lake Kussharo and Masshu, with a fabulous view of the caldera lake from your room.

Unfortunately it's somewhat spoiled by the officiousness of the place. There are so many rules, explained in massive detail during an unnecessarily compicated check in process. There are signs everywhere telling you what NOT to do.

The onsen is small and has a view of the back of part of the hotel. What a wasted opportunity. It was also not very hot 2 out of the 4 times I used it, rather missing the point.

In room amenities were mean and the bed uncomfortable.

Breakfast and dinner are in a colossal echoing hall which reminded me of a school gym. It's noisy and busy and utterly charmless. And the food is frankly mediocre for Japan which is most unusual.

The place is clearly geared up to the mass market bus tour crowd and it shows.

Others have commented on the unfriendly staff. I just think they don't like working there.

This is not the real Japan. Easily the worst hotel on this trip for me.

Room Tip: Higher floor for better view of the lake. Away fromthe lift area which is noisy.

We stayed at 5 different hotels during our road trip through Eastern Hokkaido. The staff at Prince Hotel Kussharo stood out as being the least friendly. The attitude was unlike other Japanese hospitality staff. There were no good mornings, hello, welcome nor thank you after making our payment. Not even a smile. I'd recommend staying elsewhere if you prefer friendlier service.
