Pros: amazing view, excellent staff, out door onsen (hot baths), fantastically presented dinner which is included Cons: hotel really needs a complete make over! If you can look past the very dated decor, it is an amazing experience to be had. I hope they can renovate the place so that it can be a truly amazing hotel. Very nostalgic.

I really wanted to stay at this hotel because of the Onsen pictures. But some of the reviews put me off. However the pictures won me over and I am so glad! This is a fabulous hotel with great, friendly staff. Yes the decor could be considered updated and nothing is quite as "Shiny" as the marketing pictures. But with... More

This hotel might look a little bit old on the outside but the inside is great. The reception has excellent service and the receptionist took us to the room, making introduction of the hotel on the way. The hot spring bath is great. We viewed the sunset in a wooden tub, which was really luxurious. The dinner was wonderful, which... More

I had high expectation before I arrived, but the hotel is old and serves mostly for group tours. Although the view nearby is great, the hot spring, being one of the most important factor for choosing this hotel, is not impressive. Even it's outdoor, your feel is that it is simply artifical. Breakfast quality is average and the room is... More

Taking the shuttle bus that serves the hot spring hotels and the JR train station, it would be about 20 minutes before you're dropped off at the hotel. It is a bit old and the furniture looked like they are from the sixties. But the rooms are clean and modern. I was upgraded to a mixed western and Japanese room... More

The hotel is quite old but their onsen was facing the ocean, a wonderful view when you seat inside the bucket (the onsen). Also every room got seaview but what a shame is - no wifi, only at the lobby. I had a meal at their restaurant which is Kaseiki, over ten small dishes, rice, noodle... but not as delicious... More

Hotel itself is quite old and seems to be tailored for group visitors. I read some reviews and had fair expectation about it, the hotel boarding seems to be unreasonably high so I didn't book it together with the room, however upon arrival I asked the front desk staff about potential place for dinner, here is where the disaster began:...

The Japanese style room with a sea view is pleasant and spacious. The onsen (in big wooden buckets) with a view over the Pacific Ocean is awesome and unforgettable! The Kaiseki, traditional multi-course Japanese dinner, is also good. There is free wifi in the lobby. The hotel is easy to find. We took a bus from Osaka and the hotel... More

This is a big onsen hotel by the seaside. The staff members provided good service once we drove in. When we checked in, a very helpful lady receptionist who spoke Mandarin received us, she escorted us to our room and explained all the details to us clearly. The room is a sea-view one, very spacious. The tatami area is on... More
