As noted by previous reviewers - outstanding staff; friendly, helpful and who do their best to accommodate various requests such as transportation to collect & return skis or to/from the bus stop or train station, visits to local restaurants, etc. They were just wonderful, especially with my elderly mother. While Akakura Onsen has the bulk of the restaurants and shops, Akakura Kanko (Akakan) has the Sky Gondola, which is just a short walk across the carpark from the hotel (and you can ski back even closer; you just cross the road to get back to the hotel). The not long renovated western style rooms are super comfortable and clean. There’s a ski storage area with separate ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ entrances/exits and a free guest laundry (one washer and two dryers). There’s a dai yokujō (big bath); staff are open that it’s not strictly an onsen, as it isn’t supplied by onsen water, but by (very) hot town water. The furnishings, setting and etiquette are similar to an onsen though and still muscle soothing – you might not get the therapeutic benefits of the onsen mineral water, but you don’t get any sulphur smell either. There’s a differing hot breakfast option each day. Dinner (ate in 3 nights) is mostly western/fusion, tasty and decent value, however, Thursday (well it was while we were there) is Nabe night – oishii! The staff though are very open-minded and happy to recommend restaurant alternatives and make bookings for you (especially when speaking Japanese helps). Izakaya Pontaro around the corner (<5min walk) is a great place for a meal and drinks. Waremokou (next door) was also decent for lunch. We had initially aimed to book a place in Akakura Onsen, but the ones we wanted weren’t available, which was fortuitous, as we had no regrets staying at Hotel Silverhorn. A big shout out to Brian x 2, Naomi, Luca, Reina, Fabian and chef Grant for contributing to a brilliant holiday!

Dinner at this restaurant was superb. The chef puts on a choice of two entrees, two mains and a dessert with a different theme each night. On our first visit, we tried sashimi and then seared tuna or beef cheeks with mash followed by a divine deconstructed poached pear cheesecake. Our second visit was curry night, which included delicious accompaniments like pineapple chutney, yoghurt dressing and roti. We let the chef know in advance that we had a vegetarian guest and he was happy to cater for her

Visited Hotel Silverhorn for a 5 day skiing trip. Was met from the train station by Brian a 10 minute journey later we were at the hotel. We were booked into a ‘western’ style room on the second floor which was large, modern and clean. Double bedroom, lounge area and bathroom (with an excellent heating system). Breakfast was a small selection of cereals, breads and a cooked option. We ate in the hotel for dinner on a couple of occasions and whilst the menu was fairly limited it was very tasty and large portions. Other days we went into town and ate in restaurants there. The hotel is located across the road from the gondola. Probably the best location in town.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Silverhorn for our Honeymoon in January 2019. Our expectations were exceeded in every aspect. From the minute we arrived, we couldn’t believe how friendly and welcoming the staff were. Outside of dropping us into town for dinner and occasionally picking us up, they were also more than willing to provide recommendations for where to eat, advice on what stores to visit in town, guidance on Japanese culture and traditions to avoid embarrassing ourselves, as well as tips on which ski resorts in the Myoko area would be best for each day’s conditions (and they were spot on!). Aside from having breakfast at Silverhorn every morning, we also had dinner there on multiples evenings and always found the food to be delicious and good value for money. We found the Tuesday Japanese Menu night to be particularly enjoyable, and were disappointed we were only there for one of them. We were very impressed by the staff’s attention to detail in remembering our dietary requirements at every meal to offer us things we weren’t allergic to. At the most basic level, one of the most pleasing aspects of our stay was that everything was exactly as advertised or held to an even better quality. We found our room to be very comfortable, and appealing after a long day on the slopes, all amenities were very clean and functional. We made use of the private onsen in the lodge almost every day. We found the location to be fantastic, the base of the gondola lift for Akakura Kanko is literally across the road. The town of Myoko Kogen and the closest lifts for Akakura Onsen is a quick walk away, but free shuttles are also available. My wife and I will always look back on our time in Myoko pleasantly, and were very grateful to the staff of Hotel Silverhorn for helping to make it such an enjoyable experience.
