We chose to stay in this hotel which is just opposite the Lake Biwa, with beautiful scenery than in the city centre of Kyoto. Driving distance was just around 20 minutes from downtown Kyoto to Royal Oak Hotel.
The room for 4-person was extremely huge, spacious, clean with a make-up room and the toilet/bathroom was huge too with bathtub & cubicle shower.
Free parking was available at the basement.
A beautiful garden is on-site too.
It seems many couples held their wedding functions in this hotel.
Staff were friendly and helpful.

Date of stay: November 2017

Beautiful Hotel in front of Lake Biwa. Room is spacious and very clean, bed is comfortable. There is a good breakfast buffet was a huge assortment of food. Not much to do at night, there are a few shops nearby but they close early.

Although not in Otsu it's close enough to visit Kyoto 4 stops and stay in this very large hotel. Has some very nice but expensive restaurants with not much close by. Pricey spa services, a pool and a small but nice bar.

If you are planning a kyoto trip, this is very convenient place to start. The room size is much much bigger and price is much much cheaper! It takes 30 min from Kyoto Station but it's worth it.
It is nicely situated next to Biwa lake. There are several restaurants to choose but I recommend Teppanyaki with lake view. You can taste Oomi beef, one of the best beef in Japan.
The Spa is very famous and worth trying.

Room tip: Room with lake view is much nicer
