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

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:)

Mid February 2014

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 apr├Ęs 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)!
