Recently refurbish, Wellies has large rooms (and bathroom) and well equipped, perfect for families. Western style. They use a lot the local product from Gunma and Nagano and propose a lot of smoked food (smoked at the hotel). We had a great time

About
Description
WELLIES is a unique small hotel only one hour from Tokyo in the fashionable mountain resort of Karuizawa. Chris, the British owner offer gastro-pub style cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. Most of our rooms More have cool functional designs and funky British wallpaper. Spend time on the terrace or garden enjoying the natural surroundings, or have a drink at the bar with friends old and new. We are only 10 minutes drive from the JR Karuizawa (Shinkansen) , Outlet shopping, Prince ski resort and Kyu-Karuizawa old town. We are less than 5-minutes from Hoshino area (Harunire Terrace, Tombo No Yu hot spring, Stone Church, Seizon Art Museum and Blestoncourt wedding hotel). We are only 3 minutes drive from Naka-Karuizawa station. Convenient for birding. Eat with us or we can give advice on local restaurants and also the inside track on things to do and see in the area. We are about 7 minutes walk from Naka-Karuizawa station. The whole hotel is NO SMOKING inside. Less
