What Our Guests Say
The staff were super friendly and we were very lucky to meet some great people staying here.
Niseko ski lodge is an easy walk from the Hirafu gondola and restaurants.
Would definitely stay here on my next visit to Niseko!
The bed was very comfortable after being on the mountain all day. The location was just a short 10-minute walk to either the gondola or downtown.
However, the best part was the customer service. Fantastic support and quick response time from the team! They helped book my bus tickets into town, offered a ride to and from the bus station.
When my flight was delayed they were there to help me book a new bus time. I ended up leaving my gloves at the hotel and they found them and mailed them back to me. If anything I would return here from the service alone!
I liked the ski room and the fact that they had 3 toilets. It was great.
The managers is really friendly and really helped us a lot.
