Wake up in the morning and ski straight out onto Happo Mountain. Traditionally Austrian, everything at Marillen - from the warm, European décor to the indulgent fondues - is a throwback to the Alps gone by – in the best way possible! It’s a peaceful refuge from the snow, where Naoko and her team will take excellent care of you.

There are 15 rooms sleeping two, three or four – all with en suites and balconies. Half of the rooms face the slopes whilst the others look back towards the village and, for everyone, there is a lovely cosy lounge area with fireplace which overlooks the slopes. So if you want to stay in the warm and watch the world ski by, this is the place to do it. There’s no onsen, but you can pop to Hakuba Springs Hotel nearby if you feel like a dip. Dinner is a real highlight, with hearty Austrian dishes, a great wine selection, rich, gooey puddings and floodlit views of the slopes; but all of the other options in Happo are still on the doorstep.

Its sought-after location means Hotel Marillen gets booked out way in advance, so let’s be quick off the mark!

The Marillen Hotel is an excellent ski-in, ski-out option. Indicative prices range from ¥33,500 (£185) per room per night during low season to ¥65,000 (£360) for a room during the peak new Year period.
