Hard to find anything to fault. We were very comfortable in our spacious (for Japan) 2 bedroom apartment. We loved the friendly and efficient ski valet service (skis and boots taken as soon as you have skied to the door and your shoes handed to you). The Onsen was a perfect end to your day on the slopes. The views to Mt Yotei from the apartment and all over Niseko were amazing. We took the free shuttle service to Kutchan on our day off which allowed us to do a big shop (you can get pretty much anything you need there and it is cheaper than Hirafu) and were able to eat in the apartment regularly. This was virtually a door to door service. We came back from skiing to the apartment for lunch regularly which allowed a warm up and rest with your feet up! The washer dryer made it easy to have clean and dry clothes (washing liquid was provided). There are central heating radiators in all the rooms, so you can dry your gloves etc. It is a short walk to the Black Diamond pub where you can have a good dinner and drinks. We also went into Hirafu a few nights on the free shuttle. Lots of good places there to eat and drink. Spikes for your shoes/boots are essential when it is icy in town. The apartments are serviced daily, so coffee, dishwasher tablets etc are replenished. The feel of the place is small, friendly and boutique and the corridors are not too long, so everything is convenient. I would definitely return.

We booked the hotel via Luxury Escape. It did not disappoint us. The apartment was made with such high standard and very spacious! For our family of four we chose the 2 bedroom style apartment which gave us lots of space to move around. The facilities within the room is also prepared well with fully fitted kitchen, dishwasher and washing machine (perfect when you are staying for a long period). We stayed for 5 nights and made quite a good use of our kitchen (which is super handy since there are not that many options for food nearby the hotel).

As we stayed there for the snow, the hotel was a perfect base. It is connected to the main meeting area via a magic carpet which is super handy in the morning, and you can also ski down to the hotel from the mountain. We hired our gear from the hotel (which is part of the Niseko Village service) as we had 50% discount for ski/snowboard hire as part of our reservation and we were pretty happy with the quality of the things we hired (snowboard was 2018 model). We also purchased our pass and book the kids class through the activity centre of the hotel.

Breakfast was so so with not much selections. we had to choose either omelette, American breakfast (bacon, eggs and bit of sausage), pancake, ham and sausage or Salmon Rice. Hot chocolate is charged at extra ¥800 and there is also surcharge for cappuccino or lattes etc. When we ordered salmon and rice they did not look freshly cooked which was rather disappointing.

Transport is a bit tricky as the hotel is in quite an isolated area. We had to catch shuttle to go to Hirafu (where shops and restaurants are located) and the frequency of the shuttle was a bit of an issue. And be mindful that you should book for the shuttle to take you to the hotel early as we found out when we arrived in the airport.

Overall it was a pleasant stay. The only thing we do note is that since the hotel crew were mainly non Japanese it did lack the Japanese charm and hospitality which we did miss from our stay.

This was our first trip to Niseko so we didn’t have anything to compare with and booked through Luxury Escapes months ago so hard to tell what the actual price point is.
Having said that of the three hotels we visited in Niseko Village - Green Leaf, Hilton and Hinode Hills this was by far the nicest.
A bit smaller and quieter so perfect for families with very helpful and friendly staff. Super easy to manage ski hire, lessons and lift tickets.
Reasonable if not extensive breakfast and standard dining options in the Carvery.
Shuttle bus runs into Hirafu at least twice per hour during the busy season.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was great for a family of 5. Well appointed kitchen, nice amenities with TVs, microwave, washer/dryer etc.
They also run a grocery delivery service which was useful and have an Onsen, as well as free use of the Green Leaf Onsen and the Hilton Onsen.
The ski-in ski-out was the main reason we booked here and that was perfect. Magic Carpet outside the ski valet takes you straight to slopes with zero effort.
Having said all that, you are NOT in Hirafu so if your goal is dining out and clubbing each night then this is definitely not the place to stay. For families with small children who want an easy, pretty luxurious apartment this is the way to go. We would absolutely return.

We were absolutely thrilled with our stay at Hinode Hills. This is TRUE ski in, ski out. Only a few steps from the exit from the ski valet to the magic carpet that takes you to lifts and gondola. Zen and his staff in the dining and bar are welcoming and everything we ate for lunches and dinners was exceptional. Breakfast was limited choices and for the love of god get a second toaster.But I am being picky now. Great menu choices and all fresh local produce used was delicious.If you love a cocktail let Zen make you some of his specialties (I was tempted to take him home with me)
We had 2 x 1 br suites for us and the kids next to each other. They were beautifully furnished and left nothing wanting. We noticed the safe was not anchored to anything so could be picked up and taken away so I think this needs to be addressed. All staff were friendly and efficient.
I want to give a big shoutout to the ski valet staff and ski hire centre in the resort.
They were great for suggestions and recommendations. Always had a laugh and even had our warm slippers ready when we returned in our ski boots. Fraser, Jayden and Madelin are a true asset to Hinode Hills and we looked forward to seeing them each day. Big thanks to Jayden who went above and beyond organising a transfer to hospital when our youngest needed an x-ray, it was done quickly and efficiently.
Overall we had a wonderful stay and I would not hesitate to recommend Hinode Hills. Take a trip into Niseko Village on a Thursday night for the traditional drumming and dinner at Two Sticks.

Hinode Hills is an excellent apartment style hotel. The room facilities are perfect and the location is beautiful. The one (serious) letdown was returning back at my room, to find the security latch keeping the door ajar and a non-hotel key card in the room electricity card slot. The room was checked and there was no sign of any employee either in the room or on the floor. I have no idea how long the door was in this position.

I immediately went to reception after securing the room, and spoke with the manager. Whilst she was apologetic, this is one of the most serious issues I have come across in any stay. The manager indicated that she would have CCTV investigated, and whilst we have checked and believe none of our property is missing - there was no follow up in a note, phone call or room visit to confirm both the outcome of the investigation or to check that we are OK following this disturbing experience.

I emailed the front desk, and over 36 hours later (at time of this review) have not had a response. I have also seen the same manager in reception twice over this period, including on check out - and was not acknowledged in the slightest.

The second issue we identified on clearing out the room safety box, is this box is not secured to anything. Given you are made to read and sign a two page waiver on check in, the security and safety procedures and service at this YTL hotel have a lot to be desired.

It is reasonable to expect more from a property that positions itself within the high caliber class associated with the price point and brand positioning.

Japan is a safe country, I would return given a change in guest security and safety is made a priority at Hinode Hills.

We had a two bedroom apartment for a week and we loved it. The apartments are beautifully appointed. All of the rooms have beautiful views. Four of us stayed here very comfortably. No queues either whereas the other areas had large waiting times. The Ski in Ski out is perfect and ski hire is available in the lobby. Staff were excellent and so accommodating. Only one restaurant which is OK . We caught the free shuttle bus to Kutchan ( 30mins away) and went to the supermarket, very reasonable, and did a big grocery shop and cooked lots of our meals. Everything is available here including wine etc. Also catch the free shuttle bus to Hirrafu ( 10 mins away) if you want bars, restaurants and night life but come back to Niseko village to stay and ski!

Amazing amenities in an amazing location. It was great being able to ski to the door at the end of a long day! All staff are super friendly and efficient and the look and feel of the place is very high end. If your after nights out and a party atmosphere this place is not for you, but if your happy to ski all day and then relax it brilliant. Like most of the places in Niseko it is expensive for food but the shuttle will take you to Kutchan and with a full kitchen it’s cheap to feed yourself. We did walk 10 minutes to the black diamond lodge for one meal which was great value and lots of fun. We used the onsite onsen most days, although you will need to use the free access to Green Leaf or the Hilton to experience an outdoor onsen. Overall one of the best places we have ever stayed.

Rooms are immaculate and very comfortable. We had the two bedroom room for two adults three kids.
Amazing access to the mountain. If you want first runs you need to get to the Hilton before 8.30am via a magic carpet then a short gondola. The gondola starts at 8.20am.
Staff are very helpful and friendly. If you ring the front desk with a question on how to operate something in the room they will be up there in 5 minutes to help.
Only reason i have rated it 4 stars is the breakfast is not close to a five star hotel breakfast. Pancakes are Luke warm and re-heated before serving. All the cereal is very sugary and the bread and pastries are average at best. If the breakfast area was full they will not cope with the service. Luck for us only a few tables where occupied each morning.
I highly recommend this hotel and would be very happy to return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5-nights stay at our 2 bedroom suite. The service of the staff was nothing short of excellent as they went out of their way to meet our many requests. Special mentions to Novita, Tomo, Will and Dickson.

The room was also very well appointed and had everything we need. The kitchen equipment are very new and we prepared many of our meals ourselves. The washer/dryer is also very handy as we did laundry everyday after skiing.

Resort is also reasonably convenient for skiing. We have to get our ski gear from Greenleaf hotel which is a short 5 min walk away but there is a ski valet in Hinode to keep all our ski stuff. There is also a magic carpet and gentle slope for beginners right next to the resort.

The only downside is the resort is a bit out of the way from convenience stores and restaurants. There is only room service at the resort after breakfast and we needed to take shuffle buses to other places for meals or grocery runs. The timings of the shuffle for grocery runs are also very limited.

First time in Japan. The resort shows a lot of potential. They have been operating for only 5 weeks and I think they are doing okay and must of all the are trying very hard to make you feel welcome . The rooms are superb and very comfortable, spacious and located at the bottom of hills , effortless to go in and out.
