Peaceful area
Our stay got off to a bad start when receptionist at check in said our reservation was for one person and that we had to pay an extra 6000 yen for two nights. I said the reservation was definitely made for two, but she said no. So I reluctantly agreed to pay. I finally found my reservation that confirmed I was right. When I went back to show receptionist she said I didn’t have to pay the extra 6000 yen. That was it. No apologies. Not the typical Japanese courtesy. Most of the remaining staff were very courteous and helpful. Maybe this receptionist was just having a bad day. The hotel was nice and quiet surrounded with beautiful trees and located near a very popular outlet. The buffet breakfast was very good.

Karuizawa princely stay
Hotel was near train station with bus service provided. The cottage we stayed is very near the ski slope and karuizawa shopping outlet with tons of shops. Karuizawa old Ginza street is just further away. The cottage was clean, spacious and amenities all provided. As we were only staying 2 nights, we rejected Housekeeping to support hotel’s eco programme and were given a ¥1000 voucher which wife used to buy some souvenir at the lobby as we were checking out. Overall a wonder stay except that cottage was very cold at night. Not sure if it was the weather or we didn’t know how to use the heater in the room properly! 😅

The hotel is close to train station and shopping mall, it's a 10 min walk if u missed the shuttle bus. The room is clean. However, I don't know why the front desk staff refused to book a table for us in Nakakaruizawa directly, he needed us to talk to the restaurant owner ourselves. I'm not sure if he would still insist if the restaurant owner doesn't speak English.

The cottage was warm and cozy. It was great for a small group to share the cottage with a small living space. However, it was quite a shame for the kitchen not to equip a microwave. Nonetheless, it was a great stay and it was very close to the outlet for those who love to shop!

Beautiful, spacious and clean. Good service
We had a cottage all to ourselves and the place is really spacious for our family of 4. Due to the low season, our cottage is near the reception which makes it easy even to walk out. As it was raining quite heavily during the period, the hotel provided us with door to door shuttle service. The staff are always so polite and willing to help us. We love the place and will definitely come back again.

Old one bedroom cottage but nice view!
The one bedroom cottage was very old already and the bathroom was really old and dirty because of the wood! And the room was very dusty! On The second day they changed another room for me which is better and more clean and I appreciated that! Many friendly staffs there but one short hair young lady in the cottage reception was really not helpful! I asked for help to book a restaurant because I cannot talk in Japanese and she just dial the number and pass me the phone and asked me to talk, and I said I cannot speak Japanese and she still asked me to speak! I asked very nicely I just wonder why she had to do that?and she know English as well. The outlet is just next to the hotel which is very convenient!
