“Not economy class, but worth paying!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Location:
Situated in a open space, quiet and yet near the major flower farms, plenty of parking lots right in front, and with the mountains as backdrop - do I need to say more about the location?

Hotel interior:
Very bright (with day light) & clean, and tastefully decorated.
Room interior is closed to international 5-star quality, and I believe all rooms have the majestic snowy mountains view (not much snow left as it is during high summer).
The ambience is just right!

Food:
Good kaiseki dinner (quality & presentation) & breakfast (Japanese set; not buffet) served by smart and polite staff.

Onsen (spa):
Impressive variety of pools/facilities for a hotel of this size, and is modern & clean.
One downside is some broken tiles were left unattended (outside one of the outdoor public pool); although not on the walking path, it is a bit unsightly and could still cut.....

Staff:
From front-desk, restaurant, souvenir shop to spa care-taker, all staff are very polite and warm.

Room rate:
Mid-high. In my opinion, worth paying.

Overall:
I love the stay as almost all important aspects are more than up to mark!

Room Tip: Go for it if you don't mind paying a bit more.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2009

We were a little worried about how to get to La Terre but actually it’s quite convenient if you stop at Nakafurano station and take a taxi from there. Cost was around Y1150 one way (although the tourist website said Y1800). Alternatively you can walk along a small road if you drop off at Nishinaka station – but this is a tiny unmanned station and you have to be relatively handsfree and be sure it wont rain if you decide to walk.

On departure, we decided to reserve a taxi to take us to Nakafurano station because the weather forecast said it would be raining. Cost was the same i.e. Yen1150. We left our bigger bags in Asahikawa and took carry on luggage on our 2nd journey towards Furano Natulux and La Terre.

We stayed for 2 nights with meals (July 13 & 14). The hotel was comfortable but we felt it lacked that “warmth” and “cozy” ambience of some other accommodations we stayed in. Service was fine and the Twin rooms clean and comfortable. (quite a norm for most accommodations in Japan). We had a fairly nice view of the mts afar off - guess it can be quite picturesque when there is snow on the peaks. If you choose to open the room windows, remember to let down the "screen" to keep the insects out. Our room was on the ground floor (there are only 2 levels).

We made our reservations through the Internet (they have a website in english - just google La Terre furano). They were pretty prompt with our emails. Singles are allowed but you need to pay a supplement - can be rather pricey.

The hotspring baths were quite large, with several pools indoor and one outdoor – the male and female baths are changed daily so you get to try both. We were a little disappointed about was the opening hours for the baths. They were opened only from 6am – 9am and 3pm onwards. So between 9am and 3pm we couldn’t enjoy the facilities.

Food was served in the restaurant – we preferred the set meal on the 1st night which was more varied. The 2nd night was more on fish and some of the dishes had too much of the fusion preparation with sauces that were a little too rich after a while. Breakfast was buffet style with Japanese and some western selection – however, we wish they could keep the breakfast warm/ hot as eating cold scrambled eggs or porridge wasn’t really enjoyable.

Having stayed in many ryokans and hotspring hotels, we felt La Terre was average in terms of food and hotspring hours. By the way, its opened to the public as well and gets a little more busy in the afternoons and evenings. I can imagine how popular the baths will get in the cold season esp if its open to the public. Hence my 3 circle rating because of the hotspring hours and food choice. However I would give it a 4 circle for room, cleanliness and service.

We saw a "cafe" on the 2nd floor where you can sit on the floor - you order what you want through the ticket machine and hand it to the staff. I guess this is for those who dont dine in the restaurants but I forgot what time it closes.

If you want to take a long stroll to Farm Tomita like we did, do drop by at the Melon outlet along the way. If you walk along the main road, look out for the left side road which has a sign advertising Fukuda cheap melons or a picture of a half melon. I think the side road is opposite the Lavender East road. Seeing how much those melons cost, we decided not to buy a whole one during our sightseeing at Asahikawa or Furano.

However during the walk from La Terre to Farm tomita, the sign showing half a melon at Y300 was a real steal and the ones they served were very sweet. There are some tables and chairs for you to take a breather as you enjoy the melon. Cold towels are supplied as well, so just scoop the juicy ripe melon and savor the sweetness. This is a great halfway break (there’s a toilet too). Afterwards, ask the owner to direct you to the path that will lead to Farm tomita. We enjoyed walking on the path through the “countryside” rather than the road. After our visit to Farm Tomita, we were debating whether to take a taxi back to La Terre or walk back. We decided to walk back because the thought of another half melon beckoned us. Haha. So 3 of us had a whole melon each at Yen600 instead of the usual Y2150 +++ that is sold in many places.

It was quite a walk from LaTerre but we enjoyed every minute of it because the weather was fairly cloudy. The sun can be blazing hot so best to take an umbrella or hat if it’s a sunny day.

There’s a really huge gigantic supermarket next to La Terre called BESTOM. Lots and Lots of stuff – including fresh sashimi bento and cooked takeaway obento meals.
