We stayed for four nights. As an earlier reviewer mentioned, it would be best if you rent a car while staying here. The inn owner will drop you off at Annupuri in the morning but the Niseko United shuttle is an option for return from a day of skiing. Be forewarned though that the schedule for the bus is impossible to understand. The inn has clean toilets and shower/bath that are shared. The shower/bath provided a nice warm soothing soak at the end of a day of skiing. The breakfast is impeccably prepared and for us alternated between "western" breakfast and Japanese.
It is a very Japanese inn and I am glad we stayed in a place like this but would likely find one in the future with its own onsen. The Mexican Mule and the Black Diamond provide walking-distance options for hanging out/ social spots. Lots of restaurants provide pickup/drop off service, which we figured out late in our stay.

Me and a friend stayed at the Pension Brook for 8 nights during a skiing holiday at Hokkaido. Brook is run by a family and it is so well run, clean and convenient I can strongly recommend anyone skiing in the Niseko United area to stay. Amazing value for money and just a 5 minute walk to the main road where ski-buses take you to the main Niseko ski lifts. Alternatively you can walk 15 minutes to catch a short transfer chairlift to get to the system. I also strongly recommend to eat at least a couple of dinners at the Pension. Delicious, home cooked at a bargin price.

After 5 weeks of travelling across Japan, this pension is in our Top 3. This is not a party place and if ski-in/ski-out accommodation is what you want, it is best you look elsewhere, although it is possible to return to the pension on skis. When we booked, we were a little concerned about accessing the Niseko resorts, but our concern was unfounded. In the morning, the owner drives skiers to the nearest slopes (Annupuri or Niseko Hilton) and at the end of the day, the Niseko shuttle( free with an All Mountain Ski Pass) drops you within 5 minutes walk. Pension Brook is the first stop from the Niseko Hilton. If a little apres-ski in Hirafu is what you have in mind, the shuttle will take you back to base from there,too. If you prefer cat skiing, there is a guide service nearby, which will pick up at the pension. We loved the immaculate polished wood flooring and the comfortable. warm bedroom. Ours had two windows looking out into the woods which were covered in deep snow. The food was our introduction to Japanese home-cooked fare and it was rarely bettered during our trip.Would we recommend this place to our best friends? Absolutely, provided that they enjoyed skiing Hokkaido powder.

Nice place to stay!
The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are not that big but confortable. They cook good food for lunch on some days during The week. The breakfast is ok. The atmosphere is very nice.
Out of Niseko village there are buses to go downtown.
The price is very attractive .
One of the cheapest pension in the surroundings!

Pension Brook is typical of many accomodations in and around Niseko. It's a pension, not a Western hotel so expect that it is more guesthouse with owners living on site. The owners are very attentive but their English is rather limited.

Our room was on the main floor but the property is very quiet and we were never disturbed. The common bathroom was just around the corner and is very clean. Our room had two full beds and was simple but functional. The wifi is reasonably fast and is free.

They changed up breakfast every morning but was a variation of eggs, toast and fruit. They have beer and drinks for purchase in the dining room but nobody seemed to congregate in the common area. They also offer cooked to order food items in the evening for purchase but we never tried any of it.

The property is reasonably close to Niseko Village (Hilton and Greenleaf hotels) and I believe the owners will pick up and drop off at Niseko Village but we rented a car and never asked. The Niseko shuttle bus is just down the street from Pension Brook but Niseko is best served with a car. The property isn't close to restaurants and bars which are primarliy in Hirafu and to a lesser extent Annupuri.

For this property, and Niseko in general, a car makes Niseko far more convenient. Some of the nicer onsens are a drive away and a car gives you access to ski touring away from the resort. If you get a big storm the upper lifts will likely be closed and the lower terrain will get tracked up quickly in busy season. A car will let you go to other resorts or tour in the lower elevation, protected terrain.

There is a washer/dryer for guests' use. It's a one piece unit so the cycle takes a long time and costs 500 yen for a load washed and dried.

You'll probably need to use PayPal for the deposit before you get there but pay cash for the balance so that the owners don't get hit with a service fee.
