After many nights sleeping on Japanese futon style beds I was looking forward to a traditional western style bed. And Hilton delivers a pillow menu as well. Gorgeous daring red reception and triple volume ceiling adds warmth to the large lobby.

Use of arc design throughout the hotel from architecture to furniture. Grand peaceful lawns and golf course mad right at the foot of a mountain for climbing in summer or skiing in winter.

Love the amazing spread during dinner and this hotel has one of Japan's only 2 natural peat water onsen. You will enjoy the beautiful drive to this hotel. Multi lingual international staff on site with own golf course and world class spa. Wow. No wonder it is called the st moritz of Asia.

Highly recommend. All rooms have fabulous views.

Let's start with the context: we were here for a no-hassle family skiing holiday in a place we hadn't been to before, and we speak no Japanese and have limited experience of the country. Given this, the Niseko Hilton absolutely hit the spot and we hope to return for more of the same next February.

First, convenience. The gondola to the top of the mountain and the chair for the beginner slope are 20 meters from the hotel's side entrance and ski lockers. The ski shop, ski school and ski-pass counter are right there too. All better than the nearby Greenleaf. Plenty of English-speaking instructors too (2 of our 3 were actually English and the third was a lovely Japanese girl who had studied in the US and totally captivated our 11-year old son). This stuff matters: no hauling gear on and off buses, no hikes to the lifts, and no significant queues at the lifts either (even at Chinese New Year, when we went).

Second, the rooms. We had a double and a twin, and whilst not huge they were adequate and comfortable. Typically for Japan, decor is a little tired perhaps, but made up for by a good view from our high floor, and the obligatory and wonderful Toto toilets.

Third, the food. There are about half a dozen restaurants, all of which we tried at least once. The most popular with the kids was the tiny sushi joint, which does an all-you-can eat deal at lunchtime. You have to queue but the quality is superb. Also a memorable experience was the Ren Teppanyaki: this was fine dining and we had a lovely grown-ups dinner for two here, watching the chef make each perfectly presented course before we devoured it. Other than these two, we spent most time in the Ezo pub, which is friendly and informal and does a good range of hearty burgers and other pub-grub (with an Asian twist). It also has Karaoke rooms to one side, which provided a couple of fun evenings. For a week, we didn't eat outside the hotel but we didn't get bored: if we go again we may venture further afield although this would mean a bus or a taxi as it isn't realistically walkable to the town.

Finally, I know this is a hotel review but I have to mention the snow. It snowed every day we were there, dumping inches of new fine powder which made skiiing a joy. Of course this limited visibility at times, and meant it was rather cold, but you can't argue with quality powder. It wasn't that we were particularly lucky either: our instructor told us it had been exactly the same more or less every day for 3 months and that he had only seen the view of Mt Yotei a handful of times in this period.

Room Tip: Probably not worth paying up for the Mt Yotei view during the ski season as it snows so much you may never see the mountain.

In addition to mediocre and overpriced food, the onsen bath at this resort hotel is unmistakably dirty. They close the bath every day for daily cleaning, however it seems to only include cleaning/wipe down of the locker room and shower areas. I would be surprised if the indoor and outdoor baths are frequently drained, scrubbed, and re-filled with new clean water. During two recent trips to Niseko, I found the tiles in the indoor bath and ESPECIALLY the outdoor bath were very slippery with a black mold, which comes off into your fingernails if you brush the tiles with your fingers. The walkway to the outdoor bath is also slippery with a black mold. I am allergic to mold and since I became aware of this, I no longer use this onsen and we seek accommodation elsewhere. We come to Niseko every winter and once or twice every summer, and we have used this onsen many times, but we definitely prefer other onsen in the area. The Green Leaf Hotel in Niseko has a much nicer and cleaner onsen, but it is shut down in the summer for some reason.

First of all, thank you very much for your stay with us at the Hilton Niseko Village and your time taken to provide us your comment.
Regarding your comment, the quality of our onsen water is unique as it contains (yu no hana) minerals that appear to look like floating particles of algae in the water.
The area near to the onsen water has naturally occurring moss, due to the mineral content of the water. This mold looks exactly same with moss of outside of pond, so we would show you with the indication at the Onsen area to provide comfortable usage and cleanness.
Your comments are the key to find a way to alleviate the problem. We would very much like to welcome back to Hilton Niseko Village at some time in the near future

We stayed at the Niseko Hilton resort in March this year, towards the end of the snow season.
For a beginner skier, it was bliss to just ski-in and ski-out of the resort, with a school located just beside the hotel.
Service: Was impressed by the friendly and polite service staff (from the check-in, to the restaurants, concierge). The concierge was fairly helpful in assisting with all the dining reservations (outside the hotel) for some of our dinners.
Food - Fairly good selection and fresh ingredients. We enjoyed a sumptuous daily buffet breakfast (comprising a wide selection of Japanese and Western dishes) with the wintry landscape right before our eyes. There were at least two other Japanese restaurants in the hotel (teppanyaki - which was not bad and one could enjoy the snowcapped scenery from the windows behind the chef too) and the eat-all-you-can sushi buffet at the Japanese restaurants that served fairly delicious cuisine as well if you are too tired to travel out to the main centre. There was a bar which served decent sandwiches and other western food too.
Onsen - The outdoor onsen was more enjoyable than the indoor onsen, but a pity that it was a little too small. Very fortunate that it was rarely crowded.
If I were to nit-pick, there were probably a couple of areas of consideration. Location, location: Firstly, as a beginner, I was perfectly happy with the ski slopes available and even travelled to other ski slopes to ski after a few days. The shuttle bus was fairly frequent and we travelled to the main centre to try out different restaurants every night after the day lessons. But if one is traveling with children and not driving in Niseko, the accessibility to more restaurants (not located within the hotel) might be a factor in choosing accommodation.
Room: Paid for the upgrade of the Mt Yotei room. Room was small, clean and the toilet was very tiny. It was alright but typical of the past Japanese hotels/business chain hotels that we've stayed.
Overall, it was still a favorable experience and even now, I could recall the special drum performance held at the beautiful lobby on one of the wintry evenings.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room and only spend the extra money on a Mt view room if the weather conditions are better.

We stayed at the Hilton Niseko over Christmas 2011, and it was an amazing trip. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. Over the 5 days we spent there, my friend and I made friends with staff in the ski locker area, the bar, and the concierge!!! The restaurants were top-notch, and I'm still thinking about the burger at Ezo almost 7 months later. Altogether a very comfortable place to stay with unforgettable service.
