We love that it’s away from the hustle and bustle of Hirafu but still has a couple of restaurants within walking distance. 2nd time staying at Snow dog, new, nice and clean, very helpful staff- we love it and will be back again

Dear luarnel, Thank you for submitting a review, we truly appreciate your valuable feedback. As mentioned, Snow Dog is situated in a quiet and peaceful setting with easy access to nearby slopes and restaurants whether on foot or via our onsite shuttle bus. The apartments are clean and comfortable and come fully self contained. Great to hear you enjoyed the service from our staff and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards, David

Snow Dog was a perfect place to be based out of for our first trip to niseko. The staff are so amazing and helped us book an incredible sushi dinner in Niseko and recommended great places all week long. The shuttle bus is always running and easy to use and some of the staff are fluent in Japanese and English which helped us immensely. We felt right at home and loved every minute of our stay. The attached restaurant was delicious as well and was incredibly convenient to grab quick coffees or a dinner if we simply wanted to lay low after action packed days.

We stayed 4 nights at the Snow Dog in a 3 bedroom apartment- very impressed by the comfort and amenities, was more spacious than i'd expected for Japan. The shuttle schedule is very consistent, even in bad weather! My one item i'd call out is that the shuttle should invest in a ski rack of some sort, its a bit of a mess when everyone is looking to go to the resort and there are skiis everywhere in the shuttle. Its not ski in, but if you go up the road a couple mins, you can ski into the resort and get on a chair- and you can route your way back so it is ski out. The amenities around the condo are fairly sparse (restaurant wise), so need to go into Hirafu or Hilton area- but shuttle is quick and easy- there is a little restaurant attached to property that we had drinks in first

Dear Ruairi C, Thank you very much for taking the time to submit a review of our accommodation, we greatly appreciate it. We are pleased to hear you had a pleasant stay with us. As you mentioned Snow Dog Niseko has very well equipped and comfortable apartments that come fully self contained with all the necessities you require on a ski holiday. As you explained, the property provides its very own shuttle bus, making other resort areas easy to access. We appreciate the feedback regarding installing a ski rack on the shuttle bus and will consider this in the future to help improve our operations. Yet again, thank you for your review of our accommodation and we look forward to seeing you here again soon! Kind Regards,

We stayed for a week. Rooms were clean and large enough with a very well equipped kitchen, including a washing machine. Staff couldn't be more helpful - they provide advice about restaurants etc. in the area and can help you to book. It is a shuttle ride from the slopes (no ski in/ski out) but they provide a snow dog shuttle for guests and there are also public busses, which are efficient. There are two places to eat on the site; one lovely restaurant called Upashi Seta and a small cafe that does smaller bites. Check the opening times before deciding to eat, as they do close on some days but the food in both is delicious.

Snow Dog was the perfect accomodation option for us while we skied in Niseko. The apartments were clean and spacious and contained everything needed for our stay including the well equipped kitchen. There is a shuttle which is incredibly helpful in travelling around the area with regular buses travelling routes around the Hitlon and Hirafu village. We loved our stay at Snow Dog!
