Low Doorways, Rafters and steep staircases - You’re staying in a piece of Annupuri History! Lodge 401 Niseko is one of the original ski chalets built in Annupuri during the development of the Annupuri Ski Resort. Whilst the chalet has undergone a complete renovation, we wanted to keep the charm of the original chalet as much as possible. As such, please take care when moving about the chalet as there are low doorways and rafters and steep staircases throughout. Noise and Misconduct Policy With the exception of special party events and new year celebrations, we ask that all guests respect the privacy and experience of others staying with us. We request that all guests keep noise to an absolute minimum after 10pm. Please take advantage of the complimentary ear plugs provided to help you get a deep sleep. If you or a members of your party behave in a way that causes or is likely to cause danger, upset or distress to a third party, or intentionally damages the accommodation, Lodge 401 Niseko will be entitled to, without prior notice issued, curtail the stay and request that the person(s) concerned leave the accommodation immediately.
