This hotel, located near some prime natural areas, is famous as a wedding destination, especially for Japanese couples. The room we stayed in was obviously intended for newly-weds, as the bed was matrimonial size, unlike most places in Japan that we stayed. The room also featured a cozy bath tub just right for a couple that wants to sit close... More

Dear Mr. The Other Jim H, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review, not only our hotel but also nearby facilities!

Stayed here for 2 nights as wedding guests, and everything was just so smooth and flawless, everybody had a lovely stay! We visited during the fall in mid-November, just in time for the foliage, and it was soooooo beautiful everywhere!

HBC has enough attractions such that this place is not just for those holding or attending a wedding. We liked: - The modern chalet concept with one's own privacy yet many mod cons. - The French style buffet breakfast - crepes as well as a limited range of good quality western and Japanese goodies. - The convenience (10 mins walk...

We stayed in Bleston for two days for our wedding in Stone Church - and the staff there was simply superb. They were very caring about every single detail, and we were so touched about how much thought went into all the planning/actual event. During the Christmas season, they light 2000 candles (not electric) every day to decorate the hotel... More

Stayed at this hotel for a wedding in October. Part of the resort compound includes chapels where weddings are held. My brother inlaw got married in their Stone-chapel.

I stayed here for two nights for my son's wedding. Our cottage was immaculate and the service was impeccable. The food was excellent and there is really nothing I could fault. The hotel is in a lovely setting, surrounded by woodland and with a bird sanctuary next door. Very restful and relaxing, but VERY expensive.

We just came back from a weekend in Karuizawa. It is a lovely town but avoid this hotel. A leaking, filthy moulding bathroom, no internet access in the room and instant coffee for breakfast. At JPY95k (well over $1000) a night for two adults and two young children, Bleston Court is a complete rip-off.

I went to Karuizawa as a side-trip from Tokyo with my husband as part of our honeymoon. I've done some online research on hotels in Karuizawa and decided to stay at this rather remote hotel.
