Had an awesome week there. The staff, especially D, was very welcoming and friendly. They helped us plan our daily trips and gave us ride when they could. The food is good, rooms are clean and it's perfectly located.

We stayed over Christmas in a double room & felt very welcome over the festive period, they put on a lovely Christmas dinner at a very reasonable price! The accommodation is basic but more than adequate for a stay in the mountains & the free shuttle bus to the onsen's made for an amazing end to any day on the... More

Such excellent service! They went out of their way to help us many times over- giving advice, help, free rides to Moiwa etc etc. Excellent breakfast, but get in early if you want access to all the goodies.

You'll tell your grandchildren of this place. If you're a serious snow-slider making a pilgrimage to Hokkaido during the winter season, you'll find no accommodations more perfect than Black Diamond Lodge. If getting blasted by blower pow day-after-day is not among your top priorities-- you may be happier elsewhere. The Lodge provides everything you'll need for an epic ski vacation.... More

The Black Diamond lodge feels like you're back living at your parents place, except you wake up to 40 cm of fresh powder instead of classes. Dee and the BDL staff has got everything covered, the only things you need to worry about are your bruised hands from all those high fives from an EPIC day skiing the area! Dee... More

Four of us visited from the UK and BDL was perfect for us. Rooms are a bit basic, but beds are really comfortable, and the whole lodge is spotlessly clean! Breakfast as others have said is great. Perfect to set you up for the day. 10 min walk to the lifts (on first day, just get on lift without a... More

Black diamond Lodge has it all: from watching ski movies at breakfast to getting drop offs AND pick ups at nearby ski areas and ski touring spots to playing pool in the bar at night! But above all, the good vibes and the friendly staff made the difference during our stay. S/O to Dee, Hayden, Kevin and Jess the wizard!

A couple of close friends and I had been planning a ski trip to Japan for about a decade. January 2016 is when it finally materialized. We landed in Sapporo and made our way down to Niseko and checked in to Black Diamond Lodge. Staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful in showing us around and getting info of the goings... More

Location: BDL is located in Niseko Village, close to the Green Leaf hotel. There isn't much going on in the Niseko Village so you'll have to go to Hirafu if you want nightlife and restaurants. BDL is about a 10 minute walk to the lifts, and you can ski almost all the way back to the lodge if you get... More

“If you prefer a north american style bed rather than Japanese style, make sure you ask for that when you book your room.”

“Dorm rooms are roomy (compared to other dorm rooms). Obviously is relient who else who get in the dorm. The japanese style room is probably the best option for a group of people - book early though!”
