March 9-14, 2016 Maddie picked us up in a van from the Hirafu Welcome Center. The pictures on the internet do not do Alpine Central justice. We came at the tail-end of the Season. Free hot chocolate and coffee were good but March bookings no longer come with breakfast. Maddie and Liam are laid back and most helpful. Free laundry...

EPIC hosts made it welcoming & warm. From the communal area, the rooms through to the daily breakfasts, especially the freshly scrambled eggs and brewed coffee. Hosts were also very informative and pointed us in the right direction every time including where to eat and to ride. They love it, live it and deliver it!!! The convenient location where the...

The friendly service, delicious breakfast, convenient location, and cozy futon were just a few of the things that made Alpine Central awesome. I stayed for a handful of nights with a couple friends and we couldn't have been happier. The living room area was so warm and tidy that it felt like we were all hanging out in a home...

We stayed at the lodge with our friends from middle of Feb for 5 nights, Maddy and Liam were awesome as hosts and had the breakfast laid out every morning like a 5 star hotel! The shuttle bus to the mountain was right outside our front door and every day was easy to get to and from the hill! They...

We stayed at Alpine Central in Niseko in January of this year and had a wonderful time. Liam and Maddy are great hosts; nothing is too much trouble and they made all of my kids- age range 15-9 feel at home! The lodge is in a fantastic spot; right next to the shuttle bus and nice and quiet. Can highly...

My husband and I stayed at Alpine Central for seven days in peak season and although it was a bit busy, we really enjoyed our time there. The shuttle bus location outside the lodge was very convenient, we had a great view of Mt Yotei from our room and the breakfast was simple but delicious. It would have been better...

We loved our time at Alpine Central! Our family of 4 had a great room with plenty of space by Japanese standards. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive and kept the lodge delightfully clean. The communal areas were spacious and a great place to swap stories with other guests. I loved the furniture made from massive pieces of tree!...

We enjoyed very nice days at this lovely place. Its location is close to Hirafu. Therefore you can easily walk to the city centre within 10 minutes or just take the free shuttle which stops right in front of Alpine Central's door. Staff is very nice and friendly. They were so helpful in many aspects. Hence, we felt like being...
