Despite the typhoon, a lovely stay”

1. the owners, 2. the very comfortable room and public areas, 3. the breakfast.

Without much planning we decided to make a mid-week visit to the Karuizawa area. But we hadn't counted on a typhoon. We visited the Ginza district of Karuizawa proper, damp but fun. The storm hadn't really hit yet. By the time we reached Naka-Karuizawa station, it was late, getting wetter, and we didn't know where we were going. We took a taxi. Once we arrived and were settled in an attractive room, we were served tea in the lobby/dining/bar area. We got acquainted with the proprietors. The atmosphere is comfortably casual. Although they were busy preparing dinner for the guests who had ordered that option, they sat with us and chatted. he described nearby options and called around for us. We decided on a yakiniku place. Such an accommodating host! We walked back to the hotel and I spent most the evening visiting with his daughter, and others from the area there for dinner or a drink. My wife and I ended the evening with a dip in the onsen-style bath. At night the typhoon came in. In the morning it was raining buckets. We had a great English breakfast including a muffin topped with scrambled egg and home-smoked salmon, home-made sausage, local veggies and tomato, juice and coffee. After discussion, we decided to visit the Sezon Museum of Modern Art and planned to walk to other attractions in the area. He told us to call when we were done and he would get us to the train station. After a satisfying museum visit and completely unnecessary snack in the museum cafe, we decided to ask to take us to the station, rather than to wander bout in the storm. Fifteen minutes later he was there for us and when we parted at the station my wife and I felt we had a new set of friends whom we plan to visit again. When the weather is better.

A 10/10 experience”

I stayed in Hotel Wellies with my friend for just one night and wish I could have stayed longer. Enjoying some British style in Japan was truly unique and fun. The owner Chris was such a friendly and charming guy whom you could have fun with and also learnt a lot from. He picked us up and drove us to some of the attractions nearby despite his injury, sharing with us the tips of enjoying different side of Karuizawa. The breakfast was so good and oh of cause I won't forget about the tomato from Shizuoka (which is sold at 99 dollar for 900g in Singapore...)! Last but not least, the biggest surprise was definitely the Pink Floyd record!! Will come back again for sure!

Fantastic hotel”

The Owner, Chris was very enthusiastic. We were driving to the hotel. We were not sure the hotel location because of GPS problem. So try to Whatsapp Chris and get an immediate reply from him. He drove to us and guides us to the hotel, it was very good service! After arriving at the hotel, he has prepared tea and cakes to welcome us. His son is also there, we talked very nicely with both of them. The breakfast was very rich and delicious. While we were eating breakfast, we were enjoyed the beautiful English layout surrounding us. Chris also took photos and video for us. He was really passionate. Unfortunately, we could not stay longer because we had to drive to another place, Hakone. As the distance between Karuizawa and Hakone was far away, Chris knew I was new driver and very worried about us. That night, he asked us if we had arrived safely to Hakone. We completely felt his caring heart. Next time, I will definitely hope to stay again!

The Willes couple are very helpful and friendly during our stay. We had some welcome afternoon tea upon arrival. They provide pick up from the station and also can drive you to the nearby scenes to visit Stone church and the resorts around. The breakfast is home made style which you could enjoy the British taste if you want to have some changes from JP style. The room are spacious and just renovated. I love a lot of its decoration like a countryside cottage. It's worth to stay for a pleasant relax trip.

Nice decor with a British touch ”

The triple room was very spacious with comfy beds. Nice and detailed decor everywhere within the premises. Breakfasts were awesome. The owner, Chris, was helpful and attentive in general, but nice may not be the right word. We couldn't tell if he was just being humorous about Chinese ladies with a suitcase or making fun of us. While checkout we asked if we could settle the bill by card, in contrast with the Japanese hospitality one would expect, we were told "We accept cards but we don't want to. Do you have cash or not?" Weird.

It's a very good choice if you want a relaxing holiday. It's quiet yet surrounded by various of restaurants, and you can find convenient stores near the hotel. The room is big and nice, and the bathroom is very clean and well-equipped. Big applaud to the staff there. Also, I especially enjoyed the shower there (strong water pressure and very hot temperature, which you may not find these two features in other hotel). And I appreciate the strong flushing as well, so I did not have to worry that the tissues got stuck in the toilet (but I didn't waste the tissue/ try to make the toilet stuck, of course). I have to mention the awesome owner of the hotle- Fraggy the awesome dog. He is quiet and lovely and cute and whatever good words that fits him. Now comes the human host Chris, who is humorous and helpful, and he always makes sure his guest not go hungry. Nice hotel and dog and people there!
