The building is a beautiful architecture and the view from the room is unbeatable We followed GPS to drive there but found 2 of the suggested routes were blocked because of snow. We spent more than four hours to get there from Hakodate. It would be better if the hotel could message us the road condition. The hotel has spa and tea ceremony but we could not find any price list and booking guidelines until we checked with the staff after dinner. To our disappointment, the spa was fully booked by the time we asked. No introduction on the arrangement of the tea ceremony neither. We had high expectations at this place in terms of service with the price we paid so a bit disappointed

Magical stay in a modern Ryokan
From the moment you check in to the moment you depart, everything down to the smallest detail has been well thought out to ensure you have a relaxing and wonderful stay. Zaborin is simply serene, set on a large estate surrounded by woods and snow, with breathtaking views of Mt Yotei on a clear day. Breakfast and dinner each day were such a new and fun adventure for us, trying all the local variations of seasonal produce. There's also something very special about soaking in a private outdoor onsen while watching snow fall silently into the woods, after a long day skiing at Niseko, and cracking open a beer too! The Zaborin valets shuttle you back at your request (only a short 5 min from Hanazono ski resort or about 15min to Hirafu). Each villa is very private with no common walls, spacious and well set out. We loved staying in the Japanese style rooms with our beds as big fluffy futons on tatami mats - this is simply one of the most comfortable sleeps we have had ever!! We will absolutely return one day to stay at Zaborin!

Gorgeous property but service needs to be improved
My 2nd visit. Gorgeous ryokan, secluded but decked with the most upscale luxury amenities. Loved the private Onsen baths, heated floorings and the fantastic daily Kaiseki meals. Almost perfect stay had it not been for service levels. For the price tag of the stay, one would expect better service levels. Generally the response time on requests is slow. Also the hotel car was not allowed for use even to nearby Hirafu. I measure a property’s service standards by its ability to respond to customised requests of its guests. And zaborin really fell short on this front.
