Good: Fast email response, one of the open air onsens is fantastic, nice view from room, convenience store is nearby.
Drawback: No vegetarian dinner, no free bus service from JR Toya
Room stayed: Jap style room with view of Mt Yotei and Lake Toya
Hotel is in front of the lake. Fantastic view from the hotel lobby. Wi-Fi provided at the lobby, so you can surf internet and enjoy the view at the same time.
Front desk staffs are very friendly. One of them can speak English quite well. They have quick response to enquiry email. I am so concern on this because not all hotels I booked in Hokkaido during this trip had replied my email, even though the hotel is grand.
One of the open air onsens has fantastic view. I was lucky to 1st experience the open air onsen when it was snowing, cool!
Room is big (especially I stayed alone). it has good view of Mt Yotei and lake.
Hotel doesn't provide vegetarian menu, so the room rate I paid is considered slightly higher (6500yen including onsen tax, without any meal). Anyway I feel still worth it.
Too bad that no free bus from JR Toya is provided. Although they provide bus from Sapporo, not practical for me to go back Sapporo from Noboribetsu just to take the free bus.
You may take Donan bus in front of JR Toya to Lake Toya bus terminal (320yen). Quite a far distance to walk to this hotel from the bus terminal though. But take it as opportunity to explore the area.
I did take the bus from hotel to Sapporo. It passed by Niseko and Jyozankei. Enjoyable journey because of the nice scenery after snowing.
Never try but you may ask the hotel staff if they allow you to alight at Jyozankei Onsen bus station. Since they response to email, drop them message so that you can make neccessary planning to save cost and time on transportation.
