Hakuba Meteor Lodges guest reviews

 

Hakuba Meteor Lodges

 

Late December 2013  It has been a while, it is good to remember this nice vacation…

The Meteor lodges was all we expected, the room was spacious and warm. The facilities were excellent, we had everything we needed.

We had breakfast and some quick snacks every day at the lodge. Having the option to feed our 3 children quickly, with “home cooked” food makes our vacation easier. 

We went dining at restaurants in the area every evening. The food is very good, but sometimes we had to wait for a table for quite some time. It took us a while to realize that we should make dinner reservations in advance.


We took ski lessons for the children in English, which were very helpful. The beginners as well as the advanced skiers in our family were very happy.

Unfortunately, I only have pictures of the children, but it gets the nice atmosphere…

Thank you for your kind help!

We hope to come again next year


Below are some family pics from our trip.

Hakkoda Hotel

 

Mid Jan 2016

I really enjoyed staying at the Hakkoda Hotel for a couple of nights. 

It feels more like a lodge than a hotel, with a large lounge area that is perfect for reading or couch surfing (free wifi), spacious western style rooms and a friendly but professional staff.  

The Japanese breakfasts were excellent (western breakfast also available), as was dinner, although the menu was fairly limited. I was skiing with Simon's Hakkoda Powder Guides, and the staff were really helpful in getting me there on time and picking me up at the end of the day.  Another highlight was being able to walk to Sukayu onsen, an historic onsen with a lot of atmosphere and well worth a visit. Overall, if you feel like staying somewhere that feels a little more luxurious and don't mind the commute to the rope way, Hakkoda Hotel is a great option.

I am truly impressed with both the quality of the food, accomodation and service of the people on Hakkoda hotel. It was amazing! Also the service you provided with almost instant answering e-mails with all of my questions. We had 5 amazing days skiing. Would love to go back, and will also be using JSA again without a doubt.

"Just a quick note to thank you for all of your assistance with my trip to Hakkoda.

The Hakkoda Hotel was very nice, the staff extremely helpful, and the food was absolutely amazing.

Everything was as expected, including transport from and back to Shin-Aomori.

I had two really wonderful days of skiing with guides that the hotel helped me organise. And I was pleased to be able to use Sukayu Onsen. 

I really can't thank you enough for everything you did and the advice you provided. I will definitely contact you when I am organising future ski trips to Japan."

Monaile Madarao guest review

 
 
 
 
 
Late January 2017

We had a great trip to Japan, the snow was incredible and we had some lovely sunny skiing days. 

In terms of the hotel - the room layout was great for a family, but the hotel itself is very dated and a bit rundown for the price. Though it is convenient to have breakfast and dinner included, you wouldn't want to eat at the Monaile restaurant every night as it was quite limited, so we found we went up to the Kogen Hotel for dinners (which was included in the deal, you could eat at either hotel). The staff were absolutely lovely, and it was a ski in/ ski out location. The shuttle bus was always available which was also convenient.

We will keep in touch as Japan is a great family holiday for us, and we are all likely to want to return!

Mid January 2017

We had another wonderful holiday at Madarao. As usual, the standard of accomodation, level of service and equality of food were excellent value for money. 

Each year the resort is starting to provide more services for Western customers. There are now 2 really good coffee spots and more options for english ski lessons. 

This year the skiing conditions were perfect . So much powder and the slopes were really quiet. Madarao is a great family resort. There isn’t a huge amount of night life or dining options outside the main hotels but for families who just want convenience and easy access to ski slopes it is perfect.

Early January 2017

Yes we had a great trip – loved Madarao. The hotel was fine – slightly older hotel etc but we had the benefit of using the facilities up the road at the bigger hotel. The shuttle bus worked well and we were always able to get around (except for one v heavy snow day!).It is a tiny resort and very Japanese. 

Have to say we did enjoy it a lot.

Late December 2016

We had a fabulous stay at Madarao. This was my visit ski holiday ever so I was a little nervous about the whole thing.  Your service was fabulous, very professional.  Our booking went very smoothly, no issues at all once we were on the ground.  Everything as planned.

The accommodation was clean, tidy.  Basic but very adequate.  Room was warm which was the main thing!  And there was plenty of hot water so we were always warm! The shuttle bus up to the main resort was very frequent.  It really was no hassle staying down at the annexe hotel.   We used the facilities of the main hotel without any issues.  The Onsen at the main hotel is lovely.  Buffet restaurant also good.  Breakfast at the Annexe very Japanese style which was lovely.

We had a great trip, wonderful experience which went very smoothly.We would definitely use your service again and highly recommend Madarao if you want a very Japanese ski experience.  There were few Western tourists at Madarao which made our experience all the more authentic which we enjoyed immensely.

Thanks and cheers

2016

I just wanted to say thank you and all the staff of Madarao Monalie that made our stay a wonderful experience.

The warm hospitality, nothing was ever a bother or an inconvenience – its very much appreciated.

We will miss Madarao (beautiful people & place) – until we’re there next.

Ross, Amy, Peter – thanks for all your assistance in helping us get to experience Madarao.

Thanks & kind regards,

Peter

I’ve now back at home and work and still thinking about my time in Madarao. Enjoyed the hospitality and looking forward to the next time I’m there.

Late March 2016

Thanks so much for all your help. We are still at Madarao enjoying the fabulous Japanese hospitality of all here especially Toru who has looked after us so very well, he is Si,ply delightful and so helpful. 

We have been down off the hill on the local bus that is the only one still running to Iiyama. Iiyama itself has so much to see especially the clay doll museum, amazing! The brand new info office at the wonderful new Iiyama station is excellent and you can see all the buses coming in from inside their picture windows and lovely heated waiting area. We also did a trip to the snow monkeys that Toru helped us arrange from the station for 4800 yen plus discount if you use the bar code on the brochure, about $50 each. Before the big dump of snow it looked like the season would end this week but we are now snowed in! Took another trip on local bus to Nozawa Onsen and returned on the Nozawa Liner bus which is still running from the station. Many thanks again, I am more than happy to provide any kind of promotional support I can for this fabulous lesser known resort in the area. Do let me know if I can be of any help. Do you have Toru or Aki's full names and email contacts as I would like to send them personal letters of thanks. 

Here are some from Madarao Kogen for you to use in what ever way best suits the support of both resorts - a great place for aussies to visit and ski and sOOOOO easy with the beautiful new Iiyama Shinkansen sation right at the bottom of the hill. 

Even though we were at the very end of the season and most buses had stopped running we could still work around the community bus timetable and get down to walk Iiyama City, do the snow monkeys tour including beautiful Shiba Onsen on the way back and went down later in the week again to go over to Nozawa Onsen for a look. Then.....we had a meter of snow dumped on us over two nights and days so of course went out for the next three days to play in the pow! It was just beautiful, Toru was sensational as was Aki and Toru even drove us down the hill on the final sunday morning as our shinkansen connection for Osaka via Kanazawa didn't match with the local bus. He's simply the loveliest guy and so very helpful. 

I would do what ever I can to assist you guys support our Buller/Madarao relationship and feel so very privillaged to have been accepted into the program from BSL. 

Ski Hire people at Madarao Kogen Hotel couldn't do enough to help us, gear was fine! They had our soft boots ready for us each time we turned up back at ski hire!


I have about 1000 pictures of all over Japan, do let me know if you'd like me to hunt you up some specific areas - like Shinkansen photos etc. Kind 

Regards Lea and Rod Gill  







 

 

Mid January 2016

Madarao hotel this was really great for families and would highly recommend this hotel and location is fine.  It’s a quiet family hotel with all the facilities you could want.  Lovely rooms.   

I don’t mind if you put my Madarao comment on the web site.

Thank you again.

Mid January 2016

We stayed Monaile Madarao in Mid January. Two families of 2 adults and 3 children each.

The hotel was very comfortable and perfect for a family.

Great views of the slopes from the rooms and very clean. Fairly basic accommodation but excellent value.

Excellent in Hotel Onsen.

Breakfast was always good and perhaps better than the breakfast on offer at Madarao Kogen Hotel which is the sister Hotel.

The shuttle between the 2 Hotels was terrific. It went whenever you wanted with very little wait.

Being able to ski pretty much from outside the door down to the lifts every day was a huge bonus.

The runs were a good mix of challenging and steep right through to some wide gentle cruisers.

It was nice to see so many Japanese and so few westerners at Madarao. 

Lots of snowboarders!

Lifts are pretty slow but quite well connected and as the resort is on the smaller size it is easy to ski it all, but it doesn’t become boring.

There are good eating options on the mountain and a few great little restaurants in the the village. 

Be prepared to book for the evening meals as they don’t have much capacity and close early.

You could end up eating 2 minute noodles in the room otherwise!

One tip is to stock up in Iiyama on snacks and things when you get off the Shinkansen and before you get the bus up the mountain.

The supermarket is next to the station. Madarao has very limited convenience store options.

Overall a wonderful resort and despite the unusual season of 2016 we still had enough snow to really enjoy the trip.

Hisae and the team at Japan Snow Accommodation did a great job recommending the Resort.

Thank you

Sorry for the delay in responding to this I have been extremely busy since returning from Japan. 

Our trip was fabulous!! This was our second time to Madarao and it was as good as I remembered! Would be happy for you to share any of the below my feedback on your site! 


Our trip to Madarao was absolutely amazing! Monaile Madarao is a great hotel with everything you might need on site - ski lockers, restaurant, small convenience store, wi-fi, laundry and an onsen. You also can't not give a mention to the ability to ski in and out, the free shuttle bus to and from Madarao Kogen, a view you can never get sick of and a wonderful team of staff who go above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay.  This was our second trip to Madarao and it didn't disappoint! The snow is perfect and powdery with lots of ungroomed runs and plenty of room on the slopes. 

Booking with Japan Snow Accommodation made planning our stay so easy as it meant I had our room, breakfast (the option for dinner) and lift passes all sorted before I left home and combined in one transaction. The quick response times and easy booking process made it hassle free and we had absolutely no issues from start to finish! We'll definitely use them again! 

I have also attached a couple of photos you can use if you like?  


Thanks for all your help!

Late February 2014. Your help and advice was very helpful! Our trip was amazing! 

We were actually caught in the massive storm... Left sleeping on the floor of the tokyo airport and then a 15 hour bullet train ride! But After 70 hours in transit.

We were met by torou at iiamya, amazing man he is! 

We had four days of the most amazing powder with no one around to steal our first tracks! 

It was all worth it on our first run down powder wave!! 

I would return to maderao again for sure! All the staff at monaile and maderao kogen resort were so helpful and the restaurants and people in maderao were also amazing!

I'd like to thank you again Hisae for all your help and advice in making our journey so accommodating and fantastic!!

Can't wait to visit again in the near future!

6th February 2014  "I would just like  to say that  we had a great time 

All the staff from the lift guys to the staff at the monaile were always helpful and friendly.

If you have a stand at this years snow expo in Sydney i will stop in and say hi to you, Aki and Toru.

Thankyou again  for all your help"

From N.C

 

Mid January 2014 "Madarao was really fun

It is only a short distance from Iiyama (that is soon to get the Hokuriku Shinkansen), making it easy to get to and from by train. It is also close to Nozowa and Togari if you want to change it up and visit another slope for a day trip.

I was lucky because the snow was good when I was there, it snowed every other day - letting me experience the clear skies and views to the Sea of Japan, as well as the fresh powder on the Tree Line runs. With mostly school kids on the slopes during the week, there was plenty of fresh snow on the groomed areas all day too

The hotel rooms were pretty big, all the staff friendly and helpful, and the buffet dinner really good. There were also few restaurants in the resort area too (so you are not stuck at the hotel for food).

Japan Snow Accommodation made it easy to book and I look forward to future snow adventures planned with them

Thanks again"

Mid January 2014. 

My stay at Madarao totally exceeded my expectation.

The accommodation was great, well-heated, absolutely beautiful scenery, it was comfortable and not at all crowded. Naoko made our stay so lovely and enjoyable. She was so hospitable, friendly and the food she made was top quality.

I would have to say that it was the best all-round accommodation, meals and service that I received my entire trip in Japan.

The mountain was amazing, it looked beautiful and I had so much fun snowboarding on the slopes.

I would most definitely stay at Madarao Alpbach again, and am hoping to do so soon!

Below are some photos from my trip

Mid February 2014 "Accomadation was amazing at Alpbach....It made our trip. 

The owners and their dog are the best...amazing food and location. Honestly had the best time... 

Your help was awesome too.....We will be back next year! Thanks for all your help!" 

Jason Langendam

 

Mid February 2014  The trip was awesome accommodation was fantastic! 

Food was all-time! 

People were supper cool! Their dog Axle was a legend! I highly recommend Alpbach as a place to stay!

Mid January 2014 "We had such a fantastic time at Alp Bach. Naoko and Ukihiro are such wonderful people. 

They made us feel like we were part of their family. Our stay there is a beautiful memory. We had fresh snow most days. And had some fun times with other Japanese families too.

Thanks for your support and concern for our arrangements. We are so lucky to have you as our agent. Thankyou for your professional and prompt service."

Luke

 

Mid January 2013  "We ended up being the only guest through most of our stay meaning we felt like we were living in a big house with an open fireplace and views of the ski hill. 

Access to the ski hill was a 50m walk over the road to strap in. At the end of the day the ski out was similar with a short walk over a car park to get home. 

We ended up having dinners at the place for 2000 yen and they were massive four coarse meals so we actually asked for a little bit less food. The food was fantastic and the breakfast were great. The owner family were great and we met the whole family, even the dog who was very friendly. I am pretty confident in saying in the 5 trips to Japan visiting over a dozen major ski destinations in Japan our group was probably the most relaxed and enjoyed there stay at the Alp Bach the most. Normally as a group we look for new places to ski but as a group we are all talking about when we can get back to Madarao. So thanks for the recommendation and I thought you would like to know."

Lodge Bergland

 

Late Deecember 2015

We have been travelling mainly on and sometimes off to Japan since 2003. We travelled to Honshu, Nagano area, since we had a brilliant trip the year before skiing Nozawa Onsen and Madarao.

We have used Hisae and the team at Japan snow accommodations, which takes a lot of the hard work out of planning the trip. Also we have asked for alternatives and there was a quick answer and good information at all times.

After Nozawa, We made the short bus trip to Madarao ski resort there are two bus lines that run there daily. This is a small ski area but very compact runs and very nice layout. Again the year before we were skiing abundance of powder, this year was a little slower. We stayed at the Lodge Berglund, Mr Yamada and his family. This is in a secluded area with a short walk to the lifts each morning. They lodge is very clean, breakfasts are very good, a ski drying and storage area down stairs, WIFI everything that we needed for the trip. The lodge has dinners on request, or there are a number of small restaurants within a short walking distance. I would stay there again for the location, small lodge, privacy and the Japanese family atmosphere!

Late January & early February 2015

My vacation at Madarao was awesome, had a great time!!
Extremely friendly and nice people, made lots of friends, enjoyed skiing with them.
Love the stay at Lodge Bergland, Yamada San and his wife treated me like a family member.
Extremely thankful to Yamada San to pick me up from Tangram resort when I mistakenly ended up there and the return ski lifts had closed. He even gifted me a pair of ski poles!!!!!
Enjoyed drinks and food at Rudolf!!!
Cannot forget Morito San and Akiko san's challenges :-)
And yes!!! What a great skier GG Hitoshi San is, I wish I could train under him!!!!
Attaching few pics, not sure if they are of any good use to you!!!

Late January 2015.

I had a fantastic time at Madarao in no small part due to the accommodation provided at Lodge Berglund by Mr Yamada and his wife. The lodge is a short stroll from the ski lifts and ticket office with guests receiving a generous discount on lift tickets when they purchase a coupon at the lodge in the morning. 

Breakfasts were filling and always served up in time to allow you to make the most of the ski day, do yourself a favour and stay in at least one night for a home cooked meal at the Lodge.

I was fortunate to have Mr Yamada drive me to my accommodation in Myoko Kogen at the end of my stay in Madarao (in a blizard) which I am very greatful of.

I would highly reccommend this lodge to all travelers (singles, groups or families) and will certainly be back in the not too distant future.

Booking through Hisae at Japan snow Accommodation made for a very easy trip considering the limited english in Madarao.

Late January 2014

Hisae from Japan Snow Accommodation arranged my reservation with Lodge Bergland and provided detailed information on Madarao Mountain (such as how to to/from Madarao and facilities available in Madarao) in addition to details about Lodge Bergland. Hisae was very prompt in responding to my various requests for quotes on accommodation and helped me greatly in finding accommodation in Madarao that ticked all the boxes at the right price for a solo traveller. My stay at Lodge Bergland was one of the highlights of my journey around Japan – it was a true cultural exchange which has left me with many happy memories. The owners of the lodge are extremely welcoming and generous – Mr Yamada even arranged a day trip to Myoko Kogen and spent the day skiing with me. The size of my room was very large with two very comfortable single western style beds and a small bathroom including toilet and shower. A gender separated bath was also available downstairs in the afternoon/evening to ease the tired muscles at the end of the day. The breakfasts were amazing with something different each day. The location of Lodge Bergland is quite good within close proximity to a convenience store and a short walk up to the ski area entrance. In summary, Lodge Bergland offers excellent hospitality at the right price with great value bonuses such as discounted lift tickets, ski hire and waxing. The ski area is amazing on a powder day. Many of the courses are ungroomed with plenty of opportunity for awesome deep powdery light snow and you can challenge your skills in the tree run areas. There is also a pretty awesome view from the top of the mountain. There are plenty of on mountain dining options at very reasonable prices. Off mountain, there are a few convenience stores and small restaurants in addition to the Madarao Kogen Hotel offering both Japanese and Western style food. Take your time to find the smaller restaurants and you will be rewarded with friendly service and delicious food. Below are some photo's from my trip Cheers Alison

 

Late December 2013 "My stay was very nice!

Concerning the mountain, the snow was very good! There was just a few lifts which weren’t operating... i don’t know why, but still it was nice.

The lodge was very nice and comfortable. The host was very kind and helpful! i would definitly recommand this place. 

I don’t have pictures of the hotel, but I attached a few pictures of the ski station. 

Thanks for your help, everything was fine" 

From Martin N

 

 

"We had stayed in NozawaOnsen for 3 days prior to arriving in Madarao. 

The feel of Madarao town is quite different from Nozawa Onsen (more european style at MK compared to traditional village style at NO). 

We found the Lodge Bergland a very enjoyable stay with the owners being very helpful. 

Rooms were clean, spacious and nicely heated. Im not sure if double beds are available but we were given singles (not that we had any issue with that). 

The lodge offers ski hire at far cheaper price than outside and of acceptable quality. 

The breakfast was typical of the lodges we stayed at and was very nice. 

It takes approx 5min to walk from the chairlift to the lodge (in ski boots). The ski field is much smaller than NO but still very enjoyable (especially the off piste skiing in the trees). 

We would definitely go back to stay at Lodge Bergland given the chance."

By James M

 

January 2013 "I had a great trip thank you for your help and recommendation. 

Lodge Bergland is a great place to stay for your time at Madarao kogen. A warm and homely place with a very friendly and accommodating owner, very attentive and ensured that my stay was a great experience willing to help with lift tickets and transport to local restaurants and even to the mountain. 

The room was extremely warm and comfortable and of good size. Great onsen downstairs. I will definitely Return on future visits."

"Thank you so much Mr. And Mrs. Yamada, Our stay at your lodge was just awesome. 

The food was excellent, the hospitality was exceptional, and your kindness to our group was SUPERB!

We had a really nice stay in Hokkaido and also it was really nice to stay at Tabi No Kosaten, very, very nice, kind and helpful people who run the Lodge :) 

Hopefully I can be back soon.

"Run by a delightful couple called Jijyo and Kyoko who have a baby son called Hayato - they took really good care of us 

- everything from hiring equipment, transporting us to the gondola lift and taking us to onsen. 

Breakfast was a good balance and they were extremely hospitable throughout our stay there. 

A really special place to be when you're in Niseko, and a peace of mind."

By Tim

 

"Our stay at the Niseko lodge Tabi No Kosaten was nothing short of excellent.. 

Our hosts gave good down to earth accommodation showing us all the good spots to eat, drink and play also giving us advice on our futher japan travels.. 

location is a bit out maybe 10 minute walk to main part of hirafu (good chance to soba up a little) and like 5 minutes to a bus stop that takes you in and drops you off.. its got my vote"

Chalet Shiga guest review

 

 

 

Late Feb 2017

The Chalet Shiga was very good value for money however we unfortunately got very sick with influenza on arriving at Shiga Kogen – probably from the flight over as they say it takes about a week to affect you and we had a week at Hakuba before heading to Shiga.  I skied for only 2 hours out of a planned 4 days skiing.  The rest of the family were not quite as sick and got a day or two in skiing.

The rooms were good (I know as I spent most of my time in it) and the onsen was great.  Service at the hotel was also great as was the Tapas Bar downstairs.  Ski storage room was great for storage and plenty of seating to get yourself organised.The ski hire shop across the road was a bit dodgy in the quality of equipment they were giving out (this was a general feeling from our whole group) – not sure where else we could have gone but next time I would source elsewhere.

Would recommend and stay there again

Regards,
Greg LEE
 

 

 

Early Feb 2017

Chalet Shiga was exactly what we had hoped for and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will most likely return next year.We enjoyed good clean rooms and amenities and a  good breakfast. We loved having an Onsen each day after a hard day’s skiing. The staff were helpful and friendly and a number spoke good English. We found the heated ski locker room a bonus. The hotel is opposite a ski lift which made access easy  and we could ski back to the front door each day. Discount lift tickets were available at the reception desk.Our only minor problem was finding a restaurant in town for our evening meal as several were closed, particularly on weekends. The restaurants that were open were generally booked out. We experienced this last year as well and were told that it was because there were several school groups visiting. I can’t understand why it is necessary to close restaurants and miss out on the trade. It actually became a bit of a joke with other guests and a race to find a meal.

Peter, Barbara and Michael.

Great time in Japan. 

Snow was light on in Appi and Zao which was a shame but it bucketed in Shiga.Loved Chalet Shiga. 

The owners are fantastic.Rooms are spotless, big, spacious, front rooms have amazing views of the slopes and in a great spot. Good little izakaya 20m away and in the chalet they have a fantastic simple restaurant which was amazing -local beers, wine and good home cooked food. Breakfast really good. Straight across the road to a ski lifGreat variety of slopes  -had a terrific 4 days. Highly recommend Chalet Shiga to everyone -families, couples.

Heaps of snow.

We travelled as a family of 7 to Japan and stayed at Chalet Shiga for 4 nights in January. We had the most memorable time here. The accommodation was great. We had 3 of the tatami mat rooms and as requested had 3 fantastic rooms next to each other. They were very clean and comfortable, and we all loved the robes and slippers provided. 

Mr Sato was so helpful and was always eager to explain buses and help with timetables, especially when we were trying to make the trip to the snow monkey park. All the staff were lovely, polite and helpful.

The Chalet is in the best location and we just walked across the road to a couple of chair lifts. The skiing was also fantastic and once again all the staff were so friendly and polite.

We definitely plan to return as soon as we can make it. The whole experience in the snow was made so enjoyable by the great service provided by Japan Snow accommodation especially Hisae, and by all the people at Chalet Shiga.

The Shiga leg of the trip was excellent.  Lots of snow, Hide and his wife were superb hosts, the accommodation on the snow worked really well.    I cannot comment on how good the snow was, how short the lift queues were and how easy it was to get around (with our limited Japanese).  We loved the Chalet Shiga and the owners (Hide and Hideyo (?) were beautiful people.  If you had an email for them please send to me so I can thank them properly.  I did not realise how much his family is a part of the local history.

We also caught a bus on several days to travel to nearby ski fields– many you can easily ski to and from!  The view from the Bakery on a clear day was impossible to describe!  Highly recommended.  

Some travellers may be potentially unsure of the lack of western “things” but they should not be worried, the experience is a pleasure and everyone local is so friendly that language barriers and new foods are simply part of the fun!

I attach a number of photos for you to use as you wish.

The small trouble we had was the small number of restaurants to eat at but we managed to find enough to keep us full and happy for a week!  

Thank again for your help in finding great accom, brilliant snow and a wonderful Japanese holiday.  We have been to ski in Japan 5 times and each time is an incredible holiday and cultural experience.

Many thanks again

"The trip was a blast! I have no complaints at all about the stay.

It was well-kept and the rooms were very large, plus it had a bar downstairs which was quite nice.

One suggestion I do have is to try and find a more detailed map of the some of the bars, restaurants and shops within maybe a 20 minute walking distance. We ended up doing our own exploring, but it would have been nice to have more of an idea of what is around us since we are more or less limited to what's available up in the mountain. 

Thank you for your great service and a wonderful holiday!

"First, the staff at Chalet Shiga was extremely friendly and helpful" - Ming

They had our dinner ready, even though we arrived late and past their dining hours. They walked to the lifts with us to make sure our lift passes worked properly.

Second, we enjoyed the spaciousness of the tatami rooms.

Third, the location was great, right across from the lifts.

Needs improvement: The breakfast...while they offered both the traditional Japanese-style and the Western-style breakfast, the overall options left us pining for properly cooked eggs and good-for-you items (fresh fruit, whole wheat bread, muesli, yoghurt...).

Honourable mention to Hisae Cameron for being super helpful and patient with us!"

"WE were very happy with the our stay at the Chalet Shiga" - Bernie

The tatami rooms are very spacious,warm and housekeeping was great.

The food was nice and always ready. Eggs where cold in the morning, as everything was also ready when we came.

Staff where all very nice and helpful, and if we would have worried enough about it and said something, I'm sure they would have cooked them, when we arrived for breakfast.

The internet was fast and sometimes worked in the room also.

The location is perfect, you can ski in and out.

We would stay there again anytime. Thank you"
