Hokkaido Hotel Review – Hinode Hills Niseko Village

Hokkaido Hotel Review – Hinode Hills Niseko Village

A person of the numerous reasons we are delighted about the reopening of Japan’s borders is that we can share about a single of the best hotels we have stayed-in in Hokkaido: Hinode Hills Niseko Village.

We will often bear in mind the warmth and consolation we got at Hinode Hills.

Aspect of YTL Hotel group, we stayed at Hinode Hills Niseko Village throughout our extremely final trip to Hokkaido pre-COVID in December 2019.  It was recently opened then and we were among its very first attendees!  Unfortunately, as March 2020 arrived about, around the globe borders started out to shut, which includes Japan.

Our parting shot of Hinode Hills. We miss the area.

Below are reasons why we keep in mind Hinode Hills Niseko Village so fondly.

  1. Service. Assistance. Support: The heat and obliging employees at the reception and eating places make our keep unforgettable.  At the time of the hotel’s opening in 2019, some team were new to Niseko Village and whilst some did not have rapid responses to our questions, they produced it a position to get back to us promptly. Their services was attentive, welcoming and exudes a sense of professionalism.  Perfect for a travelling family self-driving in Hokkaido. As a nod to its purchaser-centricity, the resort gives a typical, no cost shuttle service to Niseko town for company to check out the eating solutions there.

Just after a wintry day out, we often glimpse ahead to coming back again and greeted by the warmth of the staff.

  • Luxurious and well-appointed rooms: The rooms arrived with every little thing families have to have on a wintertime ski-vacation. Equipped with a kitchenette, dining area additionally a washer dryer, the a person bedroom suite was a godsend. We could do laundry and prepare some simple foods for anyone in the household.    Everything from bedding to toilet ooze premium luxury.  Fantastic for the family members to sense pampered soon after a day out in the snow.

The kitchenette and dining place is a god-sent. We experienced numerous awesome heat cooked foods there.

Magnificent and spacious lavatory.

  • Fantastic locale with ample no cost parking: The hotel is about 15 minutes’ travel from downtown Niseko.  This is great for people who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of Niseko city though having the possibility to pop by for the occasional searching, foods, or ski lessons. The entrance of the hotel delivers sufficient parking room.   However, do observe that driving in wintry Hokkaido is not a stroll in the park and is most effective advisable for professional drivers.  Make sure you study our article in this article on driving guidelines in wintry Hokkaido.

Tons of house, snow and landscapes all over.

Hinode Hills grew to become our ‘HQ’ as we travelled to send out the young children to their skiing classes and…

…had some time to ourselves to attempt the numerous eateries close to Hokkaido / Niseko spot.

  • Fantastic foodstuff: Our stay arrived with breakfast as we like to bit by bit ‘warm up’ before likely out to the snow every single morning. Choice of foodstuff is a combine of Japanese collection amidst the mostly continental choices. The modest variety of well-cooked and scrumptious choices, bade very well with us as we can get only what we can end and not stimulate foodstuff-wastage. We notably like the fruits and juices as it features excellent nourishment to the family for the duration of journey. During 1 of the days when the snowfall was significantly solid, we opted to dine at the in-residence restaurant, The Bistro, which turned out to be just one of the most effective meals we’ve had on that excursion.  The photos simply do not do it justice. 

Foodstuff at The Bistro was top rated notch. Ideal when we did not want to courageous the windy snow to go out.

The Bistro is intimate and presents truly fantastic food with good picks.

We mentioned that the hotel has due to the fact expanded their checklist of products and services and facilities.  Have a glimpse at their web page listed here for far more details.  

  • Snow, Snow, Snow: The hotel is surrounded by enough house and snow fall.  There is, in simple fact, a ski slope and ski college just appropriate at the rear of the resort entire with ski lifts. Family members can nearly stay away from the crowd at Niseko city and just love Hokkaido’s popular ‘JapPow’ snow suitable right here at Hinode Hills.  The resort does provide a ski-in-ski-out facilities and storage for your ski gear. This implies households who want to ski will not have to contend with taking the community transport with ski gear in tow.  Really handy!

Don’t want a playground when you have snow! My young ones taking part in gleefully just right outside the house the hotel.
