“Excellent View, fabulous spa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

We had a room in the club side with a very very nice view of the Toya Lake. With such a nice view, we enjoy not only the view of the lake and the volcano, but also the fireworks at night. The room is spacious with western style bedroom and Japanese style living area, which is an excellent combination. Coffee bean and grinder is offered in the room as well as a wide choice of black tea and Japanese tea. In the bathroom, they also offer skincare separately for lady and gentleman.

We reserve the 50 minutes private spa on the top floor (9th floor) which also offers a nice view. The spa is relaxing and comfortable.

The dinner buffet offers a wide choice from Japanese, Chinese and western style food, a lot of desserts and soft drinks as well. They also have a corner specially offering food for kids.

We took taxi from Toya JR station to the hotel which costs around 2,000 yen. Hotel can also help to call taxi. We just stayed here for one night and only take a small walk around the Toya Lake. It should be fun if we explore more to the hiking trail and cycling around the lake.

Love this hotel from the very beginning. You'll know why when you're welcomed by friendly door man and after walking to the front desk, wow, the view is so amazing.

Stayed for 2 nights in a japanese/western style room in the club side of the building (room 1505). Impression on walking in was an extremely high class hotel with high attention to detail. We were provided with a hot berry drink and biscuit on check in. Views were already spectacular from lobby. Room when we walked in we just went wow. Huge 56 sq metres, beautiful view of lake toya, 2 separate sitting areas, 2 TVs, huge bathroom area. I think it is worth paying a bit more to stay in the bigger room compared to the hotel style twin room on the other side of the building (only judging from other people's photos).

Public onsen was great, especially from the rooftop onsen. Breathing in the crisp air with the view of lake toya while bathing in hot water. It was busy on the first day at about 4pm, as many people had just checked in and were there to check out the onsen. The next day I went at 10am (before they closed from 11am to 3pm) and there were only 3 people in total, for the last 15 minutes I was alone on the rooftop. So I recommend going before the checkout time or just at 3pm when people are only starting to check in (if you are staying more than 1 night).

We also booked private onsen for the 2 nights we were there. There are 2 private onsen rooms, number 1 has a very small onsen but open plan with sitting area and dressing table. Number 2 has huge onsen but smaller changing area. First night we went at 9pm, absolutely no view. Second day at 4pm view was spectacular. It does get stuffy though because it's indoors in a small area so if it doesn't mean much to you to onsen with others in private then I think the public rooftop spa is much better.

First night we had buffet dinner which was great. Huge variety, sashimi was fresh, lots of japanese style appetisers. Breakfast buffet the next morning was ok. I expected more but it was still good. The second night we had kaiseki dinner in a private room. A true culinary experience. Kaiseki is japanese degustation. The ingredients used were of the highest quality and they used mostly all local ingredients. Service was true Japanese style. You could tell how much thought and love had gone into preparing the food. Definitely worth it especially if you have a special occasion to celebrate. The hotel gave us a complimentary bottle of red as we were celebrating our anniversary. The japanese style breakfast was again great.

This was truly the highlight of my trip and I have not been so impressed by a hotel so much before. Staff were always welcoming and very willing to help. Cannot wait to stay here again.

This beautiful hotel was recently redone about a year ago and it is modern and contemporary with a beautiful lobby and dining room that has fantastic views of Lake Toya. Our room was also beautifully done and had its own onsen. Breakfast and dinner was buffet and served in the dining room. The food was okay, not quite up to par with the gorgeous surroundings but still adequate and again, the views make up for it. Each room in the hotel has a view of the lake. We would definitely stay here again.

I checked in yesterday. Even before my departure tomorrow, I highly recommend this hotel.

The free shuttle bus from Sapporo JR station took 2.5 hours to get here and the scenery on the way was beautiful.

Though I don't know when this hotel started to open for business, everything inside look very new. Almost every corner of this hotel is simply but tastefully designed (kind of minimalist). The room which we have is decorated in an easy to the eye earth tone, spacious and comes with a spectacular lark view.

The onsens aren't very big but are still nice. Service is courteous and efficient.

If there's one thing I should criticise, it must be the dinner. It's buffet style and since we stay here for 2 nights and they just changed a few food items tonight, we got a little bit bored. Not a main issue though.

A great experience overall.

I stayed in this Japanese modern onsen hotel in Oct 2013.
The Room itself was very big for one person (Solo Traveller). The shower products are all high quality (Shiseido) although it is likely you will not use it since the Onsen itself is world class!.

There is a small fireworks display every night so try to have the dinner earlier in order to catch it.

I chose the Kaiseki dinner and Japanese breakfast package, it is a bit steeper than the buffet package but the meal quality is extremely high.

The cost for staying one night is also quite value for money and I would strongly recommend to anyone going to Lake Toya.

It is a pretty good onsen hotel in this area but probably not what I expected. The room is ok...just standard but clean and spacious. I am surprised there is no bathtub. And also since I have stayed at other onsen hotels, this hotel doesn't provide as good amenities as I usually see in other places. The onsen on the roof is not as big as it was kind of advertised. Even the indoor one makes me feel crowded. Dinner buffet was decent, just thinking it should have more Japanese cuisine. Overall it is a good choice but I expect more at an onsen hotel with this price.

This is a fairly new hotel with a contemporary modern design located opposite Lake Toya. The hotel sign is only written in Kanji and there is no English translation hence first time visitors may not be able to locate this hotel easily.

There is a public bus leaving from JR Toya station and it takes approximately 15-20 minutes to reach the Toyaka Onsen bus terminal, which is the last stop where you need to get off. From there the hotel takes 8-10 minutes to walk to.

Upon checking in we found the room to be spacious with a separate shower enclosure and a toilet cubicle. However, housekeeping has to do a better job of deodorizing and sanitizing the toilet as there was a faint unpleasant odour emanating from the toilet bowl even before using it.

Our room had a nice view of Lake Toya and possibly most if not all of the other rooms have lake front views too.

Half board was included in the room rates consisting of buffet breakfast and dinner daily. Dinner consisted of Western, Japanese and Asian food and variety is good. The sashimi bar and steak station served good, fresh fish and beef steak. However, the crab legs and claws tasted bland probably due to being frozen too long.

There are also a number of different dishes served for breakfast including scallop sashimi as well as a fresh apple juice bar.

Front desk staff were pleasant throughout our stay as were most of the dining and cooking staff.

There is a public onsen with separate facilities for men and women on the 9th floor of the hotel as well as a private onsen which has a time limit of 50 minutes per session. Cost is around ¥3250 per session. The pool in the private onsen is big and can easily fit a family of five or more.

In conclusion, we enjoyed our stay and most of the food served in Nonokaze Resort.
