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

There is a balcony outside each guest room for guests to enjoy the nature. The husband greeted us with travel information and detailed introduction of the room. There is an Apple TV and music CDs for us to enjoy. You can tell they put a lot of thought into designing the house. The husband/wife drove us to the restaurants and took us back when we finished dinner. The next morning we were served a wonderful Japanese breakfast prepared by the wife, and then she drove us to different sightseeings including the churches, the waterfall, Kumoba Pond and the Prince Shopping Plaza.

Cons: The less expensive rooms are low value for the price and in need of a refresh.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Such a great place to visit with a lot of history. The room was super spacious and facilities were lovely. We didn’t eat at the hotel as for us, it was an easy walk into the town centre and an array of restaurants to choose from near by if you are going at the right time of year. We personally did walk to and from the train station and found this an easy couple of kilometres walk with luggage bags that had wheels. We also hired bikes so we could get around and this was definitely a highlight.

4.2 Okay
Pros: very disappointed by Manpei this time,,, we paid for the name and no quality in it,,,,accommodation was poor, not comfortable at all, definitely need renovation,, nothing special on main dining room either,, our expectation was all lost. We stayed at The Prince Karuizawa day before and this was much better with less cost,,,,Manpei has no fame any more,,, this legendary story is all gone,, will not go back,, fallen to 4 star hotel or less,,
Cons: see above

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The owners were amazing! Steve was so kind! He and I communicated often, before my friend and I stayed at his hotel. He picked us up from the train station. He warmed up our late dinner that we bought from the store too. He prepared the jacuzzi/private onsen bath, so my friend and I could use it; at short notice! Breakfast the following morning was so good. Loved the french toast! Our room was clean and nice. He even made a map for us, to help us with our sightseeing the next day! I personally loved the Hawaiian theme of the hotel. Steve informed us that winter is off-season in Karuizawa. But if I'm ever in Karuizawa again, I will definitely stay in his hotel! I would love to come back in Autumn. I highly recommend his hotel. He is really welcoming to foreigners.
Cons: Everything was great! No complaints!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Steven and his wife were great hosts and the stay overall was excellent. They always went extra miles to search for us places we're interested to visit and to help us feel at home. The most impressive thing is the cooking skill of Steven! He's a superb chef and the food was always out of our expectation! He made us western breakfast for the first day, then Japanese, then french! And sometimes they would serve Hawaiian dinner, it costs 3,000 Yen per person but it's worthy of money! Very delicious and fulfilling! Highly recommend everyone to try it if they schedule a dinner! The bedroom was very neat and clean, and nicely decorated with a Hawaii style, with the temperature that we could adjust ourselves. It kept us warm in the snowy night we spent. The beds and pillows were very comfy, so we could take some good rest after driving a few hours from Narita. We stayed 3 nights there.
Cons: nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We arrived by car, and the location was very convenient to find, even in the dark. The place was very quiet and peaceful, a little ways off the main road. Breakfast of french toast was delicious, cooked by Steven and his wife, both very friendly and inviting people. They were so helpful in their recommendations of places to see, along with clear instructions of how to get there. Will definitely go back if in Karuizawa! :))))
Cons: Not a major problem, but the rooms could be a bit more sound proof. Could hear people with their luggage checking in and out.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: I stay here for one night in girls limit room. The owners are kind and they also offer the transportation services to and forth Nakakaruizawa station. I love the comfortable atmosphere and environment here especially at night or early morning. You won’t feel boring here because they have lots of books and comics (but in Japanese) you can enjoy them as you want. If you have a tight budget but really wants to stay in Nakakaruizawa for a night, then I suggest Bells cabinet cafe to you.

Pros: Idyllic countryside experience in a cozy cottage. Although a 12 min walk from Naka Karuizawa station is considerably far by normal standards, it is pretty near for the countryside where transportation is less developed.

You can request for pickup from the station upon arrival and also drop-off at the station when you checkout.
Cons: Nothing

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The Prince is nicely situated from Karuizawa Station with easy access to skiing, onsen and shopping. We stayed in a small cabin which was cozy and comfortable. The onsen is clean, with nice water and very relaxing, there were lots of families so having children did not feel like a burden. The ski slopes are very accessible, we didn't try this time but definitely will next time. The shopping complex is very extensive and there are lots of fun options.
Cons: The beds are a bit hard in the cabin we were in. It is a big complex, so getting around take some planning especially with kids. The hotel is very accommodating with pick ups and drop offs, but its best to know where you'd like to be in advance.
