Not a luxury hotel but fantastic and extremely helpful staff, great onsen (cascade of hot water in the outside bath). The food is great value and very good, it is all Japanese, but there is so much quantity that if you don't like something,it doesn't really matter. The position (ski in ski out) is perfect for skiing, and they also have ski equipment hire in the hotel and there is a hotel shuttle service to the station (a few minutes drive). The room is good size. The hotel has mainly Japansese guests, but the staff make great effort to speak English. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
