First thing its not ”new” they probably named it in the 70s. Once you get over the initial shock of the décor, we are talking plastic roses trellis tunnels and Romanesque curtains from a 80s porno movie.
I actually really liked the place gives you a good feels of what the average Japanese folks do for a weekend away. Turning up for breakfast in yukatas with bed hair etc.
We took the Japanese room, small but comfortable and had the smallest bathtub in the world but very deep so works well.
It’s located away from town but that also means you get a nice view of Atami bay at night. It caters for the Japanese market so English is not spoken through out but very helpful Staff. I knocked off 1 star because of the name is slightly misleading. There is a Royal wing but I never saw it so maybe that’s the new part?
On the first night it sounded like some one was constantly moving heavy furniture/equipment until 11 pm.
