Excellent staff, location far from everything

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 July 2023via mobile
Highest praise to this inn’s fantastic staff, specially Carla, Sigi, Yuki, and Amana! They went out of their way to make our stay pleasant: booking cabs, helping us book a bus tour (Japanese only website), and always accommodating. Their English was very good, so communicating was easy. Thank you!

This is not a hotel: it is an inn, and the room is more a bedroom in a house, but charming. Breakfast is good, with the main course plated; no choices (so don’t expect a buffet). What was a nice surprise was a daily late afternoon cocktails (they call it “welcome drinks”) which lasts until late in evening, and includes whisky, wines, juice, and yogurt milk. And daily free coffee (espresso type) which was particularly good!

The free shuttle pick up and drop off when you check in and check out is very useful, and saves you the price of 2 cab rides (approx US$22). Be warned on Furano Station: no elevator, so you need to climb up then down steep stairs to get to the platform! Not easy with big luggages!

Negatives: while room was charming and large by Japan standards, the bathroom was tiny, so if you are a plus size, you bathe with your body hitting the shower curtain or wall.

Location is far from everything, so you need to take cabs all the time, with each 1-way trip to the town center costing approx. US$9-10. Nearest convenience store is maybe 15mins away, and an uphill climb back.

The onsen (traditional Japanese bath) is an artificial hot springs, but a pleasant experience.

A charming town, and I would consider going back to this inn if I go back to Furano.
Date of stay: July 2023
Room Tip: TIP: when going to town, have staff book your cab back to the inn, since it it not easy to just...
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Adrian and his team are so friendly and welcoming, it feels like a home from home. I don't normally write reviews, but my family really enjoyed our stay here. The welcome drink was a lovely touch and nothing was too much trouble. We also enjoyed the onsen after a long day of skiing. Breakfast was made with local veggies and very tasty. We would definitely stay again.

I travelled Hokkaido just a few weeks ago for 9 days, and I must say that among all hotels I've stayed in (and I went from Hakodate to as far as Abashiri), this was the best accommodation I've had!

Furano was an easy favorite, and this quaint, cozy hotel even made it more appealing to me. Their shuttle service is for FREE, operating until 6 PM. It can pick you up to and from JR Furano Station, then bring you to Ningle Terrace and back, and I guess even the supermarket. In any case, the location is great as it is a few steps away from the Kitanomine Gondola bus stop / Furano Snow School and very near a lot of food options, which is real great if the temperature goes negative. (At that one night I stayed there, it went as low as -20 in the morning, but still, a lot of food options are available.) The staff are very warm and friendly, and they even drive you themselves to wherever you want to go, as long as it is before 6 PM. A lot of them can speak good English too. The room was very comfortable and spacious for one, free breakfast was great, AND, it had an ONSEN facility, which was really awesome after a half day of body ache from skiing and double digit negative weather. :) All of that in the most competitive price for a night's stay in Hokkaido, at the peak of winter. I will definitely recommend this to my friends and family!

Friendly and helpful staff. We booked two different rooms for our stay and our room was on the first floor.There are no lift, but they did helped us to carry our bags to the first floor. Ample parking space across the street, beside the chalet. There is a common area to hangout, and free drinks (self service) during the evening. Breakfast portion was huge and delicious.

We book a room with 3 bedroom. The room style is a little old fashion. The bathroom is small but clean. What I like most is their service. He suggest where we should do for the day and try to call the location if the farm is open. Even if they are under-staff, he even carry the luggage for us when we check-out. They also have a common room for children to play video games, and piano.

Service was excellent, especially Adrian who would go out of the way to help with a smile. When we were there, we realised that hotel was very shorthanded. Adrian was the receptionist,the chauffeur, the cook but he always serve with a smile. We needed confirmation with a tour at our next Destination. He helped to call the tour operator and when he couldnt reach them he checked their website for the information we required.

The onsen was good not overly crowded. There was also washing machine and dryer. The only reason I did not give a 5 star was because the hotel was quite dated and the bathroom is extremely small. If you flush the toilet beware of the shower becoming very hot suddenly.

Other than that I would not mind staying here again.
