We stayed at The Vale for a weekend in March 2021. It was quiet because of the lack of overseas travelers (Covid times), but all the facilities were excellent and we could enjoy every part of our stay.
We have a 3 year old and a 1 year old, so the apartment was perfect for us to balance eating out and cooking for ourselves. It was a great size and everything was easy to use and safe for the kids. The washer/dryer inside the apartment was so convenient for kids too. (And the huge stone bath was a highlight for them too!)
Staff were very friendly and spoke Japanese and English, and The Vale is within walking distance of ski slopes/rental/cafes and restaurants - which was great as our 3 year old was hitting the slopes for the first time.
The hotel also has its own restaurant, onsen and outdoor pool facilities - so it’s a great balance of convenience and independence.
