My partner and I stayed for a week in Hakuba, the room was very comfortable with a view out into the snowy forest. Breakfast selection was great every morning. The relaxing onsen was great every day after a day of skiing. Although the hotel is a little walk away from the town center, is is close to everything you need and the hotel runs shuttles in the morning and afternoon to the closest lifts so you don't have to walk the hill in ski boots. Joanie was lovely and often booked dinners for us over the phone and even offered to drive us to restaurants and into town to grab supplies when she was off to run errands.

As the other reviews have said, the team at Wadano Forest Hotel really make this place! Joanie, Jamie, Mayumi, Raymond, Sai and the others are very accommodating. The rooms are warm and cosy and have everything you need, the view of the forest is stunning. Sai's cooking is delicious and the breakfast is worth it with a simple variety and always something warm to fill you up. Sai made us the most wonderful 'sushi role your own' dinner which my children just devoured and we stuffed ourselves.

The hotel is located near the end of the shuttle bus route which is a bonus when catching the bus to Iimori as you are the first to get on! Wadano Forest is in easy walking distance of the Thai Food van (amazing!), The Rabbit Hole and Penke Bar.

We will be back!

My Son and I stayed recently at the Wadano Forest Hotel which was a very enjoyable experience. We were warmly welcomed and looked after during our Stay. Great facilities and location. The team of Joanie,Jamie,Raymond and Sai, were always on hand to help anyway they can with local advise, booking restaurant or private drop offs and pick ups from Sakka and Gondola each morning and evening. Highly recomend to anyone and they have fantastic accomodation, meals and Onsen. See you again I am sure.Jason

The team at Wadano Forest Hotel are the most accommodating and lovely bunch I’ve stayed with in a long time. Joanie, Raymond, Sai, Leah, Jamie and the rest of the lovely staff made sure that my group of friends enjoyed our stay. The rooms were, without exception, lovely and well-equipped, and we enjoyed the onsen every night after a long day of skiing.

Transportation to the slopes was made super easy via private drop-off to Happo-one, or shuttle buses from a bus stop just 2 minutes away. Our highlight was definitely the hotel’s restaurant, whose resident chef, Sai, cooked the most delicious home-y breakfasts and dinners for her guests. If you’re lucky you might even be able to request a dinner meal! There’s also a cosy small bar tucked away next door to hang out after dinner.

Wadano Forest Hotel is simple, but just perfect. My friends and I had the most unforgettable time!

Visited Wadano forest hotel with a family of 4 and it was amazing! Very good service and wonderful and lovely staff!!! . We were very sad to leave!!! Breakfast was lovely, the cooks are very nice! The hotel is not far from the slopes and there is very easy access to busses into the main village! Definitely recommend!!
