We arrived early at the hotel and could not check in so we left and went around fruit picking in nearby Sobetsu. The hotel is right by Lake Toya and we booked a Lakeview room. It was a western and japanese room meaning we had a double bed and japanese tatami living setting.
Despite some reviewers who mentioned about the crowded tour groups, we did not experience that. We had met some Taiwanese groups maybe 2 or 3 and that's about it. There was no rush and the Onsen was great. I really enjoyed this onsen which had one of the best views. The fireworks were great and we could watch it from our room lying in bed. Breakfast and dinner were both served in the same dining hall and it was a good wide spread. The hotel is a bit old and dated and I think there are a number of them in the same area that are in need of refurbishments and maybe a fresh coat of paint.More
