First up, I love this hotel. I've stayed in it twice now (five years apart) and it is still the same.
Shibushi is a pretty small town and only really has two hotels in the central area. I've stayed in both and Polaris is the best of the two. It is however quite dated inside. Although the foyer is quite smart and clean it looks like somebody's living room with display cabinets and shelves full of knick-knacks everywhere. The rooms are clean and bedding is fresh. The decor has not been updated for many years however, and makes the place look a little tired and faded.
The staff are amazing, super friendly and nothing is too much trouble. In terms of location, Polaris sits on the main street in Shibushi. Within five minutes walk there are some of the best Izakaya in Japan. If you like mixing it with the locals and eating fine Yakitori you won't be disappointed. It's also only a ten minute walk to the JR station.
