The hotel has a homely style and decent food however the interior is a little dated and the rooms feel like they should be updated.
Access into and inside the building requires using a lot of stairs therefore is not disabled friendly, even a baby buggy can be difficult to bring into the room.
Facilities around the hotel make up for the dated hotel and provide fun activities for all.
My three star rating reflects the old conditions and lack of disabled access, if this were improved a higher rating could be given.

Great place for the family. We went in late July and was cooler than Tokyo. The accommodations were sufficient. A little worn but sufficient. They had a fun and safe pool area for the kids and the resort had plenty of activities for children. I'm looking forward to going back in the winter. The resort is located next to a ski park with lifts near the front door.

We took the family in mid to late August for a summer holiday. The hotel is ok, striking to look at, although dated as others have mentioned. The food wasn't bad for buffet style, with a reasonable selection available.We did take issue with the fact they tried to push us to upgrade our meals by saying the earliest meal slot available was 8 pm, and this was at 2:30, before the check-in time of 3 pm! We have 2 young kids so waiting until 8 was not realistic, so we made a fuss and they "squeezed" us in at 6:15. Funny thing was the restaurant was by no means full the whole time we were there, and by the time we left about 7ish it was half empty...
The pools were fun, but COLD. Our super energetic 5yo daughter who loves swimming had had enough after 3 hours or so, and didn't want to go back the next day. We ended up selling our 2nd day tickets to people in the queue at the Playland up the hill.

The facility is not new and it is not barrier free.
But this hotel is wonderful.
Photogenic appearance as seen from the front and from the back.
The decoration of the hall is beautiful and splendid.
Halls and corridors are wide and there is a feeling of opening.
The meals were rich in variety (I could not eat all kinds), and it was delicious.
Off season (other than ski season?) Is vacant and reasonable price.

The rooms and facilities are a bit dated but the location is great for access from Tokyo. It's a large facility so you get the inevitable commercialised feel especially at the restaurant/canteen where all of the food is buffet and very average with no atmosphere. But you can ski in/out straight from the hotel and the rental facilities (all Salomon), schools, lifts are great so if your sole purpose is to be on the snow, I think it's a very reasonable choice!
