The Ridge is a luxury boutique style hotel. We stayed in one of the recently renovated modern Western style studio apartments. We're a family of four with two young boys aged 7 & 9, so had the room set up as two singles and a queen. It worked really well with plenty of room for everyone, including all our luggage.... More

Hakuba is a quaint, very traditional Japanese village. Our family of 2 adults & 3 teens had a great time at Hakuba and staying at The Ridge Hotel. The rooms were amazing. The bar/restaurant fantastic. The skiing was superb. The staff were very helpful when asked. Fortunately, I can speak a little Japanese so the sometimes tricky job of getting... More

My husband and I stayed at The Ridge hotel for 5 nights and the rooms, facilities, location exceeded our expectations. (And the cooked breakfast each morning was outstanding!) But the real point of difference was the staff, our experience was their top priority. Firstly we had an email from the quietly efficient Mason before our arrival reassuring us he would... More

A modern hotel with a Japanese twist. Communal areas areas are spacious and stylish with lovely warm fires for when its cold outside. Only ate here once but the food and service were good. The room was decorated in japanese style, tatami matted with large double bed- only thing missing was a bath- shower only- not a big problem. It's... More

I posted a review the day I left here because I was so impressed by this place but for some reason it hasn't registered. So let me go again and say that this place was outstanding in every aspect. Great rooms, beautiful food served in the restaurant, close to the mountain and all necessary shuttle buses for other mountains, great... More

I'm not one for writing reviews but felt compelled to share my thoughts on The Ridge Apartments. The accommodation is very well appointed, having previously been built for the Japanese imperial family, and whilst very comfortable it doesn't feel contrived. Location is great, short walk from the slopes, local eateries and easy to connect with ski school pick ups. What... More
