We booked a Japanese style room: cosy and comfortable. The place is clean and very well managed. Staff is super! Excellent breakfast at an extra cost. You can also take advantage of their thermal baths included in the price. A nice cotton yukata and slippers are also provided.

A nice little inn located within easy location of the UNESCO temples and pretty much most temples of interest. Even better it's about 10 minutes walk to Baze Jizo Abyss with all those eerie statues. The owner of the Inn speaks a good level of english and really happy to help especially with points of interest, restaurants and helpful information... More

We stayed for two nights in a twin western room. The room was clean and there was enough space. Personally, I am not a great fan of blankets on the beds instead of a duvet but maybe that's just me.. We used the large onsen in the hotel which was also clean and nice. Breakfast was a little expensive but... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a recent trip to Japan. After 6 nights in Tokyo this lovely ryokan was a peaceful and homely retreat in an out of the way spot close to a river. The staff and owners were very hospitable and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. We had a... More

I love this simple, small accommodation mostly because the service and hospitality are outstanding. You can have traditional, or American breakfast, and you will meet other international travelers. Turtle is a short distance from Tokugawa's expansive, highly intricate shrine complex. The Dragon Hall, famous 3 monkeys (hear no evil), and the Imperial horse are on the compound. Nikko is about...

This ryokan is located next to a river. Crack open the window and the sound will lull you to sleep. There are a variety of accommodations here. I was lucky to get a bed, however, there are a number of rooms that resort to the original futons on tatami mats. There are several glorious baths in which you can soak... More

We went in the winter and arrived after dark. It was tricky to find, but it was really clean. The bathrooms were cummunal, but there were several private onsen rooms which were nice. We slept on tsunami mats which were comfortable. There was plenty of food for the continental breakfast. It was expensive, but everything in Japan is expensive. The... More

Turtle inn is great - the staff are very helpful with the map of the local area, plus information on where is good to eat. It is located very close to the main shrines and temples and also very close to the main road for the bus. The baths are great, and breakfast was also tasty with good portion sizes... More

Nice place to stay. Very nice staff and nice rooms. The ryokan is close to all of the main sites and not too far away from the station, about 20 min by foot. The only thing is that the washrooms are shared.

Very convenient location for Nikko’s best sites; long uphill walk from train stations, but close to bus routes. Comfortable pension type room with basic ensuite toilet/bath room. Breakfast and dinner optional but served in homey dining room. Two rooms for hot bath. Staff very willing to communicate, partly in English. Two recommended dinner restaurants, and two 7-11 type stores, nearby.
