NUMBER OF ROOMS
It’s a bit old and not so big. Staff are nice. The big bathroom is satisfactory. The bed was good. Not far away from the park. Just a few minutes walking. I think it’s closer than Nikko. It’s far cheaper too. My friend recommended their dinner buffet (with JP beef and king crab) when I booked this hotel. But it wasn’t look good so we just have our dinner at their restaurant. We were later told by staff that their beef was instead from New Zealand. We ordered Lemon Beef and Sasebo burger. Of coz you can’t compare their food with those famous restaurant in Sasebo, but at least it tastes not bad. The breakfast was quite good. You could watching the train from the hotel restaurant and rooms.
Stayed overnight to visit Huis Ten Bosch. The hotel was expensive but nothing compared to the park hotels. Location was good. The hotel is extremely old, the bathrooms are terrible, the shower shares the same water source as the sink. They put a chain and a lock on the emergency exit at night (picture). We payed extra for the breakfast, it was OK at best. I would have rather paid extra for the hotel across the street.
We stayed at hotel Lorelei for one night to visit Huis Ten Bosch, the location was perfect, just outside of HTB next to the JR Station. The hotel was serviceable, and there is an inhouse onsen, though we didn't use it - reserved time slots are not suitable with our HTB visit. We also visited at the right time, the mountain fog had just rolled in and made the whole place quite ... interesting. Pro tip for the people who are visiting, make sure u book and reserve ur tickets TO and FROM HTB early, or you might have to take on reserved seats, which are quite chaotic.
I would highly recommend the Lorelei Hotel. The staff are incredibly helpful and one staff member speaks perfect English. The hotel has a beautiful location overlooking Huis Ten Bosch with the distant hills in the background. It is right by the railway station so is very convenient for trains to Nagasaki and Sasebo, as well as Fukuoka. There is a bus service between Huis Ten Bosch and Nagasaki airport which is in Omura. My wife injured her foot badly and we had to extend our stay by several weeks. The hotel was incredibly helpful spending over an hour trying to find us an English-speaking doctor (in fact it turns out most of the doctors speak English) and later contacting the Immigration Office in Nagasaki as we had to extend our visa. If you are planning to visit Nagasaki Bio Park to see the capybaras this is the place to stay as they Biopark bus, which is free, runs from the Lorelei Hotel to the Bio Park. There is an excellent restaurant and people comes from miles around for the onsen.…
The hotel is a bit old, but clean . Room size is okay for two people, about 25 square meters, Bathroom is small and a little bit smelly. However, we took shower in spa, and didn't use bathroom much, So, it was okay. Hot spring is good. Highly recommended to use the outdoor spa if weather is nice, very comfortable. The biggest advantage about the hotel is its price and location, only 5 min from the JR station. It's very convenient for us to catch the morning train to Nagasaki.
