The Prince is nicely situated from Karuizawa Station with easy access to skiing, onsen and shopping. We stayed in a small cabin which was cozy and comfortable. The onsen is clean, with nice water and very relaxing, there were lots of families so having children did not feel like a burden. The ski slopes are very accessible, we didn't try this time but definitely will next time. The shopping complex is very extensive and there are lots of fun options.
The beds are a bit hard in the cabin we were in. It is a big complex, so getting around take some planning especially with kids. The hotel is very accommodating with pick ups and drop offs, but its best to know where you'd like to be in advance.
