Stayed here as part of a conference/holiday with family. We stayed in the not so expensive room type of superior japanese/western style. There were twin beds, and a tatami area. Bathroom area small, but room size in general was large. There are fancier, more expensive rooms that are larger, have massaging chairs, and some even have their own small onsen/hot tub.
Food was excellent, breakfast and dinner are included in the tariff. Japanese and Western options available. Beautiful presentation of food. Very friendly and helpful staff, though most only spoke limited English, as I think this hotel mainly caters for local Japanese tourists presently.
The onsen experience was great. I still miss it at the end of a long day of skiing! You can hire a private onsen if you are a bit nervous about going to the public one, at a cost.
Skiing is great in Niseko. Free shuttle buses from the hotel take you to and from the slopes. Closest ski resort is Annupuri, which is about 10 minutes away by bus. Three other ski resorts are nearby, all linked, so good to get the All Mountain Lift Pass. The shuttle bus also goes to the town of Hirafu which is about 20-30 minutes away. The hotel has lockable ski storage and lockers provided free, and a ski hire outlet on site.
Free wireless internet.
Nice to wear your provided yukata around the hotel.
Like most hotels of this type, it is not cheap, but happy to pay the price due to the service and overall experience.
