A really well managed lodge. Smallish rooms however your skiing so no drama! Manager was fabulous. She made us feel very welcome. Very clean throughout. Great having the restaurant onsite. Only one two blocks from the ski lifts. Ski hire close too. Great location

Lovely welcoming staff, Moka. was a delight very welcoming and helpful. Walk from Ski fields, ski hire and lifts, Great range of restaurants. Close to an outside onsen which was excellent. Our room was above the restaurant, so a little noisy a couple of nights.

The place is central for mountain access, food, bars, spas, rental gear and buses. Breakfast is decent, but only served from 7:30-8:30am. Some of the staff are very kind while others don't give a nice vibe. It is clean, but quite basic with shared amenities yet not a communal place that people want to meet up and hang out. Good...

I'm not sure how to spell her name - Miata Tomoka? Really made out stay pleasant. First off the signage is not obvious so I had a tuff time to find the place. It's one step up from a hostel. We shared a room together for a high price. Prime time. We shared a shower and toilets with all guests....

My son and I really enjoyed our stay with Scott and his staff at Australia House. Really clean, great breakfast and friendly staff and guests. But the best thing is that you can walk to the slopes, restaurants, pubs etc no need for a car or even using the shuttle bus. Loved it!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Australia House for 4 nights in January for a long ski weekend in Niseko. I picked this place for two reasons: 1) location and 2) it was the least expensive accommodation within walking distance to Hirafu Village as we didn't have a rental car and didn't want to get one. The location of...

Stayed here early March 2016 for 8 days, comfy beds, good breakfast great location and excellent Internet connection. Heaters warm and showers hot, that's all you really need. Only negative is, can be noisy early hours of the morning from people coming home from the pub. Otherwise, would stay there again.
