    Thank you very much for your stay with us. We regret that we cannot provide our total services for this time. No meal and B&B package are all self-service applied. If you have chance to come Shimoda again, we recommend you two meals plan with our total services. We look forward to serving you again in the near future. More

    We had a nice stay and the Japanese breakfast was excellent. Service is good on an individual basis, but hotel policies are strange. We were told we could have a late checkout and then they tried to bill it to us, while no price was ever discussed. Nevertheless, we had a great stay as the onsens are nice and the... More

    The hotel is definitely a good choice. Beach views are perfect. We can't help spending hours by just sitting in the room and facing the beach. Of course, enjoying hot spring inside the room together with the fantastic view is also extremely relaxing. The meals provided by the hotel are also good. Lots of choice for fish. Staff are very...

    I've stayed here a couple of times. The first time we had a standard tatami room without dinner/breakfast included. We just brought out own drinks & some food that we microwaved from a local 7eleven (not walking distance). The room is very cheap when you do it this way. The second time we stayed we had dinner & breakfast included... More

    An amazing experience that I would gladly do all over again (which I most certainly will). The coastal views are breath-taking and the whole staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Although a few of the dishes served for dinner and breakfast were not to my liking, I would attribute that to personal taste rather than poor quality or preparation. I... More

    Located on a cliff right in front of a quiet beautiful beach. The building is a bit old, but very well maintained and cleaned. Old fashioned traditional Tatami rooms, but the bed is comfortable as they put an extremely thick good mat underneath. Extremely kind and helpful staffs.
