We stayed at the Double Black as a group of 3 couples with separate rooms. It really was a great experience all around. The location of the lodge is pretty good and the are lots of trees and forest to look over outside. We were really really happy with the hospitality we received from the staff, with everyone being super friendly and willing to help out with anything we needed. The lodge runs shuttle services to most of the mountains in Hakuba Valley and will also drop you into town to whatever restaurant you chose in the evenings. The package we got included the free breakfast, which was good for getting food into you before a day on the mountain. The onsens are pretty nice too and you can book them privately between certain hours of the day. The restaurant is amazing for dinner! Fantastic food! Probably on the expensive side to be honest though. The only complaint I have regarding the place is that we ordered a room with a queen bed and then ended up with two singles haphazardly pushed together. so they kept moving apart in the middle of the night. I don't think they actually have normal queen sized beds though.
But, even with that, I'd still recommend this place.More
