we stayed at paddington for 2 days during our visit to Nasu, it was one of the few places that accepted foreign tourists in the area as the owners spoke English. my parents and I all had a great time, the family did everything they can to make us feel comfortable as we were probably the only tourists that didn't speak Japanese in Nasu at the time. the meals were always a highlight, made from fresh local ingredients and always well presented. would definitely recommend :)

This time, I decided to stay here because I saw the promotional photos of the inn on the internet, thought the rooms and baths had a nice atmosphere, and there were many good reviews.
I believed those photos and visited with my girlfriend (wife).
We were looking forward to spending some time together, but it ended up being a disappointment. It was a very unpleasant trip...
I am really sorry that we spent time and money on this experience.

The photos on the internet are so different from the reality that I think it is a problem.
I feel strange that there are so many good reviews on the internet.
At the very least, I think it is not a good inn for spending a nice time with your lover.

<Reasons why the stay was unpleasant>
■As soon as we arrived and entered the building, there was a strange smell near the entrance.

■We had a photo shoot, but perhaps the owner misunderstood us because we were confused by the old and strange atmosphere inside the building, and he suddenly taught us how to smile.
*The two of us were confused by this, as we normally have no problem smiling, but since the owner is elderly, we understood and decided to go along with it.

■There was also a strange smell in the room.
Furthermore, the room was quite different from the photos on the internet, and I was surprised at how old and dark it was.

■The carpet, sofa, and curtains in the room were old and dirty, and the sheets didn't look clean either, so I felt like I didn't want to touch them at all.
■The toilet in the room did not have a washlet. The small TV was placed on top of a small refrigerator.

■The bathroom also looked nice in the photos, which was one of the reasons I decided to stay here, but it was different in reality.
The outdoor bath was not usually used, as there were spider webs, dirt, and no sign of cleanliness within sight, so I decided to turn back without using it.

■There were only two groups of guests staying that day, and the only other person besides us was a family of three with a small child.
During the meal, the owner stood in the middle of the dining room and began to give a rather lengthy explanation to all the guests about the ingredients and attention to detail in the dishes on each plate.
Even though we were enjoying their conversation, we were interrupted every time the food was cooked and we had to listen to the owner's story.

■During the meal, the owner interrupted our conversation and started telling us a story from his past.
We both had no choice but to listen to the elderly owner's story so as not to be rude.
Even so, he would frequently interrupt us and start talking about himself.

This time, we visited the place to enjoy our time together.
We didn't visit to learn about the owner's background or to listen to his stories.
We had to listen to the owner's stories about his upbringing at both dinner and breakfast, and it was completely unsettling.
As paying guests, I thought they should have been more considerate towards us.

■I was surprised at how the plates were placed carelessly, just placed down.
Also, the chef explained the details of the food, but I didn't find it particularly tasty, and thought it was at the level of an ordinary Western restaurant.

■The lobster we ordered as an option was different from the photos posted on the website and the photos other guests had posted in the reviews section.
The lobster was just placed on the plate, with no plating whatsoever.
The owner asked us if it was okay to bring it out the next morning, as he had forgotten to order the lobster.
We ended up grilling it during dinner, but I wondered if they had done it in a hurry or if they had cut corners.

When we checked out, they asked if they could post a photo of us together online, but we declined.

I have stayed at many accommodations before, but I have never felt so uncomfortable.
I was disappointed and angered by the owner's lack of consideration for his own position and his behaviour towards his guests.

They asked me to bring my son next time, but I will not be visiting again.
