Pros: Amazing hospitality and great family like atmosphere! The hotel owner Chris, Judy and rest of the staff (and his dog Freddy of course!) made our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. Their British breakfast is great and it’s highly recommend to have their dinner one night. Since everyone is so friendly and approachable, we felt like we are at home from morning till midnight. Thank you very much for everything and we’ll definitely come back when we are back in Karuizawa! :)
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is set in an idyllic mountain location with so much to see. The room was lovely and as a British person felt very authentic. By far it was the best British style food we have ever had in Japan, the full English breakfast with proper home cured bacon was a delight, and the 4 course British meal was honestly better than what you would get in the UK. To top it all off, Chris, Judy and all of the staff (including Freddie the dog) were lovely, interesting, attentive and really go the extra mile to make every guest feel welcome! Cannot wait to come back and stay there again soon :)
Cons: I honestly can't think of anything I could fault the hotel on, unless they can find a way to control the weather in which case less rain would be good :P
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very good service quality. Room is clean, comfortable, great English gardening, delicious breakfast, boss is nice, his puppy is cute.

Pros: This is the second time i stayed in this hotel. So i already knew that the rooms are quite small. Convenience and location were the main reason for choosing this property as it is less than 5min walk away from the train station.
Cons: the rooms are extremely small. There were 2 of us with 2 suitcases and there were nowhere to put them if you needed to open them up. We ended always carrying the suitcase up to the bed which was very tiring. In one of my attempts of moving the suitcase, i ended up breaking my key in the lock... :( the drainage weren't working that well. I ended up with water up to my ankles while i was showering and skipped soaking in the bathtub because it took so long to wait for the ankle high water to drain off.... There were 2 of us, so we needed to wait some time after one showered for the water to drain off .. there was only 1 very flat pillow provided and i woke up with an extremely bad backache, neck ache and shoulder ache..
