Gasthof Schi Heil guest reviews

 

 

 

Late Feb 2017

Hotel was as described. Small and cosy but very comfortable.

Location was outstanding. Right in the middle of town.

The breakfast each morning was great and the staff were excellent and very helpful with restaurant recommendations. 

They also run a travel company right next door so very handy for day trips to the surrounding sights

Thanks again for all your help.Hopefully we will get back there again soon

Early January 2015

The stay at the Gasthof was really nice, The staff there were super friendly and the rooms were a nice size and comfortable.

The rooms have a standard modular on-suite and tea making facilities, the breakfast provided was always nice.

There is a little bar area downstairs and a family lounge room upstairs.

There was only a small ski locker room but we made do buy using a make shift clothes line in the bedroom:)

The location of the hotel was fantastic, It is right next to the bus stop so really easy to find and it only took 5 mins to walk to the traveling walkway to get to the ski lift!!

And there are plenty of On-sens near the hotel to help unwind after a days boarding/skiing  

There was plenty of nice and traditional food places near bye so eating out was never a problem but we would recomend booking in advance as places fill up quickly, the highlight was eating at the Neo Bar which is ran by a cool guy named Marky. We had the beef hotpot which was amazing!!

To finalize our stay at the Gasthof I would say it is clean and tidy, friendly and close to everything you could need!

We would not hesitate in staying there again:)

We will definitely be re-visiting there when we can get the time off work again! Thank you so much for the help again with accommodation and we both look forward to using JSA again in the future:)

"We had a great trip to Nozawa Onsen and Gasthof Schi Heil was better than we had hoped! I have already recommended it to people as a perfect option for families in Nozawa. 

A real treat was the very tasty breakfast every morning and the nice little bar area downstairs for a bit of après ski before dinner. 

The staff was super helpful and friendly. Mr. Yamaguchi, who was helping out at the Front Desk, was terrific with English and knowledge of the area. 

Eight thumbs up (we are a family of four)!"

Appi Grand Villa 3 guest reviews

 
Late January 2017

Stayed at Appi Grand Villa 3 for 4 days in Jan 2017.

This hotel is quite big ( about 13 floors ) comfortable, but not over the top. Facilities are good, including Onsen and staff very friendly and helpful,you could get away with little or no Japanese language as most spoke some English.Virtually ski in ski out, just a 2 minute walk before you can ski down to the lift and you can ski back to the door.This hotel is a little way from the main Appi Grand Hotel where you can use their facilities with no additional cost but there is a regular free shuttle around the resort so you can access the main area quite easily.

Advanced runs are confined to the top part of the mountain, all with various lengths of green to get back onto the lifts. The most challenging run, with a tree run thru the middle of a split ungroomed run, is short  and has a long green run to access and even longer green back to the lift. If you are looking to be challenged all day I'd suggest this is not the mountain for you, if you like a bit of black and are happy with a good bit of cruising reds (our blue) and greens, then Appi would suit just fine.I travelled from Haneda airport to Morioka by train (Via Tokyo) and bus from Morioka station, I had no delays but recommend checking connections, to avoid waiting time.

Hisae at Japan snow accommodation organised all my accommodations in her usual friendly and efficient manner, re arranging dates to work in with my itinerary as we went, also picking up the deals with meals and lift ticket inclusions that were available. Hisae has organised my Japan trips for a number of years now and I will continue to use Japan Snow Accommodation in the future.

Late January 2015

Hisae (Japan Snow Accommodation booking Agent) was very easy to communicate with, very organised and kept me up to date. The whole booking process flowed very smoothly and I was really happy with the service.I would definitely use Japan Snow Accomodation again.

My week long stay at Appi Grand Villa 3 was wonderful. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much bother.

The main gondola is only a short ski away.

The hotel rooms are big by Japanese standards and had a great view over the surrounding mountains. 

The buffet breakfast consists of Japanese or continental selections and there is plenty of variety.

Lockable ski lockers for your ski gear next to the mountain exit on the ground floor.

There is a large onsen in the basement.

There are regular shuttle buses to transport you to the other hotels in the Appi resort complex or back to Morioka. Appi is only a sort bus or train ride from morioka( about 1 hour).

Appi resort also run a day trip to Shimokura resort on Fridays.

I would definitely recommend a visit - a small resort with only 3 lifts and hardly any skiers.

The snow we had the day we visited was some of the best i have ever skied in Japan.It was a great day of skiing at a tiny resort. Appi is a good sized resort and has some good steep runs and long runs.It takes a few days to explore properly.

We got loads of snow while we were there,I really enjoyed my visit to Appi.

Late January 2015

We had a wonderful trip!

The room was clean and big. 

Food was very good.

Steak and crab (buffet restaurant) was fresh and yummy.

Beef (まえさわぎゅう) served at Korean BBQ was high-quality. 

Wide slopes and non crowed (even holiday).  

Everyone can find the slopes that best suit their level.The photo is still prepared when it is ready we will send you.

Best, YingChe

Hakuba Meteor Pension guest review

 

 

Hakuba Meteor Pension

 

Early January 2014  Overall, very happy with the Meteor. 

Our one suggestion is that it would be nice if they offered Dinner. Even if this was a set menu and had to be pre-booked, having the option of not going out would be nice.



Dallas

 

"I stayed in the Meteor Pension for seven days and found it to be an excellent place to base my skiing holiday..

The communal spaces are cosy, and aesthetically pleasing, the room was all I needed and the staff were great. They're extremely generous, super helpful and lots of fun.

The Pension is not that close to the action and you have to catch a shuttle bus to lifts but its free that wasn't a hassle at all. It meant the price was much lower. 

The snow was okay but not brilliant, I was hoping for some powder but wasn't to be."

by Nick F

 

"My friend and I stayed at Meteor Pension at the beginning of February 2011. We had a fantastic time, partly due to the epic snow conditions, but mostly due to the hospitality and approachability of the staff at Meteor Pension. 

They made us feel at home and gave us all the information we required about buses, lifts, best resort to ski that particular day etc. They went above and beyond what I would generally recieve at a Pension Hotel. 

They always have an English speaking staff member working- we had arrogantly gone to their country speaking very little Japanese, however they did their very best to translate our queries- even going so far as calling another hotel to act as a translator when their English speaking son, Yuigi had gone to pick up some guests from the bus terminal! 

The facilities are very good, with large rooms and welcoming communal areas. 

The location is also fantastic, just behind Echoland. It is central to all resorts, and while not being the closest to one resort, its location makes all theresorts between a 5 and 20 minutes shuttle bus ride from Meteor. 

Definitely will be returning next season!"

by Nick

 

"We really enjoyed our stay at the Meteor Pension - the family who run it are very friendly and keen to help, and any language difficulties were easily overcome. 

The location is great, in Echoland - lots of restaurants nearby, easy access to onsens, and good transport options for getting to most of the resorts. The continental breakfast was good value (the cooked breakfast didn't look that great). 

Our room wasn't huge but was well heated (apart from the bathroom, which was arctic!) and comfortable. 

We saw one of the rooms at the next-door Meteor Lodge - the beds are bigger and the room a bit bigger, but there didn't seem a huge difference. 

Overall, it was a really nice place to stay and seemed like really good value. 

We'll definitely stay there again if we return to Hakuba."

By Kate

 

"We stayed at the Hakuba Meteor Pension in February 2013. 

We travelled as a family of four to Japan to the first time, to visit our son who was working as a ski instructor in Happo One. 

The accommodation was perfect for us, close enough to the slopes and also bars and restaurants at Echoland and Happo One, whilst still retaining a peaceful character. We had a loft room, and shared Japanese style bathrooms which were interesting! 

Tetsu and his family who run the Meteor Pension were really helpful, they took us to the slopes and wherever we asked in the minibus, and the accommodation was friendly, clean and traditional. 

We loved it and would definitely stay here again."

"The owners were very friendly people. 

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Elm Pension and plan to return during March to try snow shoeing as recommended by Toshi-san. 

The meals were big, filling and delicious. 

The room was perfectly heated and the beds comfortable.

Overall a great experience. 

Thank-you very much."

By Aimee

 

"Owner speaks great English and both he and his wife are very friendly and accommodating!

The room had a great alpine view and was spaciaous enough for our gear. 

Well heated too.

No seats in the room though, so you will prob just sleep there. 

Downstairs has a big tv and dining table to chill out. 

They served up a great French Dinner and breakfast as well."

Early Feb 2017

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising our Japan accommodation. 

Your recommendations were fantastic and we loved every place we stayed, particularly enjoying the ryokan experiences at Hakkoda and Geto Kogen. I also want to say thanks for answering any questions we had via email.

Late December 2016

Sukayu Onsen was great and nice with friendly staff, of course not speaking Japanese (for us) or no English for the staff,  is really a limitation but we found in the hotel Japanese guest , english speakers who helped us when needed.

The weather was at that time quite ok, lots of snow fall ;-) ….The team for backcountry skiing from the hotel were super helpful AND extremely professional -All of them! Really adorable! They deserve to have foreign people coming …when I am seeing so many limitation on internet just around the langage barrier…I can tell you they speak enough English to bring you on tour! Our private guide named Satoshi was english speaker and we have had a super nice day of discovering and skiing with our son of 9 years old. Satoshi has been very patient, very kind and he really has customised our day in order to make it safe, agreeable and super fun.

Scenery in HAKKODA are just amazing!! Of course if the weather turns bad, there not a lot to do, however staying at Sukayou is a real plus….you can enjoy the onsen after a full day of ski or even without going to ski.Not sure staying there a full week could please anyone, specially in case of bad weather, the public snow resort is super minimal (just 2 slopes) and if you are in Hakkoda for the first time not recommended at all to go alone on back country-really to risky-Nevertheless, back to Paris now,  we are super Nostalgic, and I am sure we will come back to Hakkoda.

Our stay was a magic stay!!! really!!Thanks for everything and your great support!

Sincerely,
LEILA

Hakkoda trip and accommodation, snow etc was fantastic last February. Hakkoda is a little gem and what a beautiful park.The accommodation was really good. Like an old fashioned ‘hunting lodge’ with a very traditional feelin

Late Feb 2016

Sukayu Onsen Ryokan is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for traditional accommodation at a reasonable price. 

The highlight of the hotel is the large onsen on the ground floor which is a great place to warm up and soothe aching muscles after a day on the slopes. The onsen is mixed but it’s very steamy so don’t let that put you off!

Rooms are tatami rooms with futon beds and are very clean and comfortable. 

Meals are a highlight of the stay, with an excellent buffet breakfast and a ‘semi-buffet’ dinner, ie. several small dishes are served at the table, then you can help yourself to the main dish, rice, miso soup, salad and dessert. The breakfast comprises mainly Japanese dishes, but you can also have cereal, fruit and yogurt and toast if you wish. Excellent coffee is also available.

The hotel runs a free shuttle bus each morning to the Ropeway (cable car), returning in the afternoon. There is also one free bus a day to Aomori station. If you miss this, there are three scheduled buses per day, or you can take a taxi.

The skiing can be summed up in one word - powder! Although there are groomed pistes, the reason to come to Hakkoda is to find fresh tracks down the mountain, particularly through the trees. You could happily days here just skiing runs accessed by the lift, though for the more adventurous, hiking snow-shoes or skins will open up more opportunities. 

Hakkoda is easy to get to from Tokyo and well worth a try if you’re looking for something different.

Late January 2015

The trip was very good, thank you! I appreciate all the organization and time you spent answering emails prior to the trip. The staff at the onsen spoke sufficient English to get by. It would be better if you had told me there is an option for room only, not including meals, as it is a bit expensive, and the food is only so-so. The mountain was amazing. We snowboarded in both whiteout blizzard and blue skies conditions. The snow was fantastic, and the guides are very organized. The other Japanese guests are very friendly as well. They knew it was my first time in back country and helped me a lot. One of the best trips I've had, thanks a lot!

Early Febuary 2015

This was my third ski trip to Japan. I have now had 3 months in total over 3 seasons. I have skied many resorts all over Hokkaido. This most recent trip was my first time skiing Honshu and took us to Nozwa onsen, Madaro and Myoko before our stay at Hakkoda. Over the past 30 years I have skied USA, Canada , France, Austria and of course NZ. I have had thousands of days on skis but never anything quite like our 3 days in Hakkoda. It will always stand out as a special time for my family and I.

As we came prepared for backcountry skiing we loved the Hakkoda experience and fortunately we had the visibility to explore the endless terrain safely.

The snow monster trees were spectacular.

I certainly would not recommend to anyone but the most experienced or super adventurous.

Without good weather you would require a guide for certain.

The Sukayu Onsen was my favorite of the many onsen visited over the years. We enjoyed the authentic traditional feel and Japanese food.

The free shuttle to the lift was much appreciated.  

Overall it was a brilliant few days and we feel lucky to have discovered the Sukayu Onsen before the inevitable crowds of foreigners.

Late January 2015 

It's my last night here at Sakuya Onsen. It has been a wonderful experience staying here, perhaps one of my best ever in Japan,  and the sking was great too.  

I just want to thank you for all your help, the accommodation you found me was top shelf. If you need some more detailed feedback, or any kind of endorsement please just ask.  

I am sure this trip will not be my last so I look forward to planning the next one!

Sincere thanks - Ian

Mid January 2015

The trip went well, it was great. Great skiing and a very nice cultural experience. I am glad we went to the Sukayu Onsen, because of the traditional japanese type of accomodation it provided. The mountain was good, lots of snow :) We skied 2 days around the lift, when it was dumping, and the rest of the time we did tours of most of the peaks there. It was a really great trip, thank you very much for the help on the booking.

Mid Feb 2014. 

We had a fantastic time, and really achieved harmony at the Sukayo Onsen

We would ski all day and then relax in the hot springs and eat great dinners together.


The snow just kept coming, and we had 5-15 inches of fresh snow every morning.

We slept really well on the Tatami mats, and enjoyed great Japanese food.

This felt like a very genuine Japan experience. 

I would recommend Sukayo Onsen and Amori skiing to all passionate skiers or people who are just looking for a reset. 

Please check out my snaps below

Early February 2014 

"We had an excellent time at Hakkoda while staying at Sukayu Onsen.

The sheer uniqueness of Hakkoda makes it a must visit while in Japan. It was nice to get away from some of the more tourist hot spots and visit somewhere which had a more traditional feel. 

The snow at Hakkoda was incredible as well as the scenery.

The traditional style of the accommodation was nice and the staff were most helpful even though they did not speak much English. 

The only downside was that some of us got some food poisoning from one of the dinners while staying there. However in saying that we would probably still come here again but avoid some of the raw seafood dishes.

The communication that you provided with the Sukayu Onsen was excellent and very helpful while in Japan especially when organising small things like baggage delivery. 

Thanks for your help

Late January 2017

Hotel Daimaru was conveniently located a 2min walk to Akakura Onsen lifts, the hotel rooms were huge by Japanese standards- plenty of room for laying out damp snow gear. The breakfast buffet was good and lockable snowboard racks in the downstairs storage room was a bonus. Great location, good value and epic Myoko powder.

Cheers Jodie
 

 

Mid January 2017

we had a great time at Hotel Daimaru. Our rating would be excellent for service, breakfast, onsen and location. Medium for hotel maintenance as it really needs some light renovation work (paints are peeling, carpet is very old and worn).

Having said that, i would go back and hope for a little refresher of the place :-)

Amy 
 
Mid January 2017

HUGE snowfalls in Myoko but the whole ski area layout unfortunately is a logistical challenge and pretty tiring on kids in particular with all the walking and poor lift connectivity. The skifields are pretty flat too and you need steeper terrain for those snow fall quantities.

Whilst clean and Huge rooms the Daimaru is really really tired with wallpaper peeling off etc. The colours of the dated interior, vinyl floors and carpet etc was so bad it was laughable and everyone had a great joke about it. That said I would still recommend it and it was fine.

Hint for future bookings: You dont want to be in a room facing the road at Daimaru. The noise of the snow movers every night between 2am and 5am was pretty bad and caused sleeping challenges.

Your assistance in this trip was fantastic.

Thanks so much again.

Hotel Daimaru was an interesting place to stay.

On the downside it is very rundown and in need of some renovation.

However it is clean and comfortable with large rooms and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It is an easy walk to chairlifts at akakura onsen resort and from there access to Akakan resort was convenient. It is also possible to walk through the village to the Akakan resort. We travelled on the shuttle bus to nearby suginohara resort and had 2 great days there with good snow and no crowds.

We had exceptionally good service at Spicy snowboard/ski hire shop, their equipment was good, well maintained and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had suitable gear.
