Stayed at the hotel for one night in end December, because of the famous blue pond and Shirogane frozen falls. It is a bug family hotel with two onsen facilities.
The onsen is ranked among top 50 in Japan according to the 2015 ranking.
The hotel is a bit dated, but the service is very good. It has a free daily shuttle to take us from Asahikawa city center, which is about 30 mins away. It also has a special shuttle to the blue pond in the evening, to visit the winter illumination. The service was so good that the shuttle purposely came back to pick us after they realised that we were left behind at the blue pond, pitch dark environment and extremely cold weather.
The hotel is next to the famous Shirogane falls, basically just walked outside the side door.
We didn't try restaurant hence can't comment on the food quality.
It is definitely a good choice if you visit Biei in winter. More
