We had been to Niseko a number of times and last time was quite disappointed with the quality of snow and the throng of tourists. Rockwood was the absolute opposite. Absolutely amazing snow, no tourists, and friendly service. Breakfast was bit geared towards more Japanese than western offering but still plenty to eat. The lunch and dinner were absolutely fantastic....

Our cycling group stayed at Rockwood for 5 nights for a cycling tour in Aomori prefecture and the location is superb as it provides a centre point for different routes to different areas.

My husband & I were on a driving holiday with a group of friends. Unfortunately we were disappointed by our stay here. I had to re-read the reviews which gave excellent ratings to be sure it was the same hotel. The reception is situated on an upper floor so when we drove in, we thought we had the wrong hotel...

Who wouldn't want powder snow and great ocean views? We stayed here in March 2016 and had an awesome time. It's a ski in ski out resort and very convenient so you don't have to carry your gear across town to hit the slopes. I snowboard and the piste and off piste tree runs were great. They also have a...

Rockwood Hotel and Spa was first-class from the moment we stepped off of the Shinkansen Bullet Train north from Tokyo, an easy & beautiful journey of less than 4 hours from Tokyo Station on the Japan Rail line. At Aomori/Shin station, we (a family of four) were met by Rockwood's transfer driver who smilingly welcomed us to the warm and...

We were fortunate to have the weather cooperating when we stayed at the hotel in late March for a skiing holiday. The ski slopes were very popular with the locals during the weekend. The hotel was recently refurbished and had good ski in /ski out facilities. Good value for money as compared to a similar stay in Hokkaido. Having an...

The quality of the snow here is extraordinary! The resort has been renovated and the rooms are perfectly comfortable. We came with two small grand children and their parents and spent four days at what will become a family destination. The surrounding area will draw us for the activities and festivities during the rest of the year as well. With...

The powder snow is perfect! The slopes are well prepared and there are no lift queues. We loved the noodle bar at the bottom of the lift. The hotel is at the bottom of the ski area and regular buses were great at the end of a full day. The hotel has just been refurbished and is very smart.Our hotel...
