My husband and I just got back from a one night stay at the Turtle Inn Annex. Nikko was a great short getaway from Tokyo to relax while being surrounded by nature.
We had a Japanese style room with floor futons and tatami mats. You can also choose traditional western style rooms with beds if you like. Being my first time sleeping in a traditional Japanese style room, I was surprised at how comfortable the floor futon beds really were. Overall the room was very comfortable--with a view of the trees outside and the sounds of the rushing river right below our window. Our room was spacious based on Japanese standards.
The room, although clean overall, was a little rough around the edges (some dirt on the walls, slight dings here and there), but it was a relaxing hideaway. If you are looking for luxuries in your room, this is probably not the place to stay. No iron, no blow dryer, no free tv, etc...
There is a heated onsen-like bath in the bed and breakfast which you can use for your private enjoyment. The large glass windows afford you a view of the trees and the river below--open the window and you hear the rushing river water and get a cool breeze.
Breakfast was very good! Highly recommended. Breakfast included fresh fruit (kiwi, banana, pineapple), hard boiled egg, different breads with butter and your choice of tea or coffee. It was simple but very well presented and delicious. The cost of breakfast is an extra charge.
