The Shiretoko Prince Hotel Kazanamiki is your basic onsen resort hotel that can be found all over Hokkaido. The lobby and entrance area have been well maintained, and lack the run-down appearance that afflicts many an onsen hotel in Hokkaido. The rooms, however, definitely show signs of age. They are certainly comfortable and clean, but they are not in the same condition as the rest of the hotel.
The onsen on the first floor is great, but there's nothing particularly special about it. There's no great view, and it's not that different from onsens you could find at significantly cheaper hotels.
The buffet dinner was great! Although many of the side dishes were average, the crab and steak were fantastic. I also found no fault with the service at the hotel - the staff was friendly and very helpful. We appreciated the plate of fresh fruit found in our room fridge each day too!
The major downside to the hotel was its location. It sits on a hill about a twenty-minute walk from the Utoro bus terminal. There are shuttle buses that connect the hotel to the bus terminal, but there was no time schedule clearly posted, especially for foreign guests.
Although I quite enjoyed this hotel, I probably would not stay here again due to the price and the location.
