For a good old fashioned hotel with a warm, homely feeling and very helpful service from its staff, Hakuba Yamano Hotel was awesome.
The staff are great people, each had their story to tell, but of course were also very helpful during our stay.
Lots of extra useful facilities like laundry room, ski gear storage/drying room, onsen bath, vending machines (with beer), little info/snacks shop and a shuttle bus that could drive you around as long as you checked with them in advance, we made good use of it several times.
It's not a big fancy new hotel but it's got alot of history, check out the famous sports people who have visited in the past in their photos.
Overall, very comfortable stay, everything was super clean, highly recommended.More
