RoomsAll rooms have TV (with pay satellite TV), telephone, a small fridge, electric kettle, safe, robes, hair dryer and private bathrooms with a toilet with bidet (which is a real highlight in Japanese culture!).

The hotel also offers ski school bookings and ski rentals.

Restaurants & BarsThere are  a number of restaurants and cafes to cater to most people's eating desires including 5 restaurants (one is a buffet), 3 cafes, and a bakery.

The hotel bar is only open from 5-11pm so this restricts apres a little. So is you are after a bit of party time, this may not be the place for you!

A Bit Sterile but Great Location

This review is not based on personal experience but as a result of reading a huge number of reviews to get the general idea of the pros and cons

PROS
- Great location - ideal for couple with a child
- Rooms are generously sized by Japanese standards
- Good selection of restaurants & cuisine (both Japanese & western)
- Food is reasonably priced given the resort style property
- Staff are friendly

CONS
- Location is quite remote from downtown Furano (30 mins by bus) plus the bus service is infrequent (not free) making it difficult to go into town for a meal
- The hotel has a sterile feel to it 
- No wifi in rooms (only LAN connection) and free wifi in lobby is very poor
- Insufficient hotel lifts to cater for peak traffic
- Bar only opens at 5pm so no apres
- Limited vegetarian or special needs food choices
- Negligible English speaking staff

Many of these cons are typical of many (most) large Japanese ski resort hotels. But you are there to ski anyway!!
