So my daughter loves Stephen King books (the Shining) So after reading other reviews of this hotel referring to it being a bit creepy, we booked for a bit of adventure.
Pros the hotel is spacious and very traditional. Beautiful views over the river gauge and the constant white noise of a raging river below.
Ladies onsen had 3 baths 2 inside 1 outside.
The lounge has massage chairs looking out over the gauge and a karaoke machine. The foyer has a range of vending machines including one for icecreams.
There is a suspension bridge 3 minutes walk away that takes you to the other side of the gauge.
Cons- it will take approx 40 minutes to get to Nikko and the trains do not run frequently. Check the time table to plan your return journey to minimise long waits on the station.
Food is limited and must be ordered the day prior.
Highly recommended for travellers with family and those who are not rushed.
