Karuizawa princely stay
Hotel was near train station with bus service provided. The cottage we stayed is very near the ski slope and karuizawa shopping outlet with tons of shops. Karuizawa old Ginza street is just further away. The cottage was clean, spacious and amenities all provided. As we were only staying 2 nights, we rejected Housekeeping to support hotel’s eco programme and were given a ¥1000 voucher which wife used to buy some souvenir at the lobby as we were checking out. Overall a wonder stay except that cottage was very cold at night. Not sure if it was the weather or we didn’t know how to use the heater in the room properly! 😅

The hotel is close to train station and shopping mall, it's a 10 min walk if u missed the shuttle bus. The room is clean. However, I don't know why the front desk staff refused to book a table for us in Nakakaruizawa directly, he needed us to talk to the restaurant owner ourselves. I'm not sure if he would still insist if the restaurant owner doesn't speak English.
