Overall, really average onsen. It gets the job done but it's not a nice facility. The outdoor onsen is quite small and can fit 5-6 people tops and you're not really looking at anything but a wall. If you're out of options for onsens and need a fix then I guess why not
Front desk service was good, room size was acceptable, room view was beautiful, breakfast was great, onsen was good, room prices was acceptable! Free carpark is available. The staff can speak english! I will be back!
After a long day of skiing we drove to Highland Furano for a traditional onsen bath. Our hotel concierge recommended it to us. It was an authentic Japanese hotel which we understand has been popular amongst tourists who go to Furano to see the lavender fields during the summer months. Our onsen experience there was very pleasant and we were happy with the quality of the natural hot spring water.
It is at a rather isolated position. So if one does not have a car, this hotel is not recommended. The hotel is in general slightly outdated. The rooms are of reasonable size. However note that there is no bathroom inside the hotel room, so the only way to wash is to visit the public hot spring. In other words, if you like traditional hot spring this hotel is nice. On the other hand if you don’t like hot spring, you should not choose this hotel. The dinner provided by hotel is however surprisingly very nice, which is traditional Japanese set meal.
We were there before any flower bloom, hence no comments on the patch of lavender next to the hotel. Room is simplistic with “airplane toilet, with automation”. If not for the Onsen, I would give a 3 stars rating. Onsen was different from the many Hotel Onsen we have been to. This is a typical Japanese public Onsen where you see family visit and spend the day. Interesting.
