The Aqua Alpine was amazing. It is in a superb location, 300m to the bottom of the ski lifts, and within 5 minutes walk of quite a few restaurants and bars. The staff here are incredible. The manager Josh is so helpful, and will do whatever it takes to make sure your stay is great. He is obviously very careful about the staff he chooses, as every single one of them was amazing - helpful and friendly. The rooms are really spacious too. The breakfast here is also very good. The bar and restaurant are great if you dont want to go to one of the nearby restaurants. The burgers and steaks are a highlight. All-in-all, I could not recommend it more highly.

Stayed there based on a friends recommendation and we were not let down. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were the only people staying at the lodge. Yes the place was busy and we mingled with other guests at the bar and restaurant, but service wise the staff went out of their way to make it feel like we were their only focus.

Proactive advice on where to go to ski (eg, a place with a child minding facilty for our 5 y/o who had enough on the skis) and shipping us around when and where we wanted. Very organised on moving us around to get our kit ready. Activities each night and a movie each night for the kids.

The only improvement.... maybe some more "local" menu choices although they did have a sushi making night.

Overall we loved it and hope to go back soon.

Fantastic hotel with spacious rooms, great communal lounge with fireplace, fabulous restaurant for dinner and breakfast. By far though, the best feature is the amazing service - nothing is too hard - from transfers to and from any ski slopes or shops or station to advice on where best to ski. We left some clothes in the dryer and they were only too happy to package them up for us and send them to our home address in Australia. We would definitely stay there if we re visit Hakuba and do not hesitate to recommend this great little hotel.

Served good steak, but the group dinner one night was mmiserable and expansive - tiny portions at the center of each large plate. Friendly service suddenly turned frigid when we shortened our stay and asked for transport assistance to a better value hotel very close by.

This is a B&B type accomodation in true Aussie style. It's close to the Hakuba 47 ski slopes with a free shuttle service . The accomodation is neat but basic and food options are limited around the hotel area. The attached restaurant has themed nights. What makes this place stand out is the staff and service. They are always at hand and willing to help including pick ups and drop offs. They go above and beyond what is expected and one can't speak highly enough of them.
