“Simply OK, but if you go, must get the Japanese style rooms!”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

We stayed here a few days with a big group of people to celebrate a wedding, reception took place at the hotel as well. The hotel staff was not the friendliest, maybe they were overwhelmed but there one front desk lady that was snippety and a bit of a smart alec, really made for NOT feeling welcome at the hotel. However, the food servers were all excellent. The one MUST DO is to get a Japanese style room, they put out the tatami bedding for you each night and the sleep on those futons is simply awesome! The western style rooms were really dated and awful looking, like they were created in the 70 or 80s with an unsuccessful luxury look, gold trims everywhere, blue couches on red carpets, not good. Meanwhiel the Japanese rooms I am sure were equally dated but you couldn't tell. The hotel itself was pretty dead with not much to do and not a very close walk to town/to the train station. The village is a surf beach town but we went in April and it felt a little deserted by the beach. There were some really big landmarks close by (Temple/Great Buddha), but you'd have to take a taxi since not an easy walking distance. As far as food goes, our breakfast was included. They were pretty strict about breakfast times but otherwise it was pretty good. The only downside was that it was the same breakfast every day, except for maybe how you ordered your eggs or substitute bacon for sausage. You get to decide western style or japanese (washoku). We went for western since we had done Japanese style at another hotel and felt we'd had enough fish for breakfast. Aside from it getting boring, the yogurt was good and you got unlimited bread/pastries whish we loved. Food, lunch and our wedding event, was pretty darn good so I'd have to give them props there.

Reviewed 19 March 2011

The hotel was nice and "grandish" but not the best location as its by the beach and would be much nicer in summer. We stayed at the hotel in winter and it was a bit far from the main part of town and the sights. However we did walk to the JR station area from the hotel and if you like walking on a trip it was 'doable'.

I would probably want somewhere more central if I went back in winter again. However it was by the water and in summer it looked like it would be quite a nice area. Lots of beach style cafes etc. Quite interesting for Japan to see American surf culture with a Japanese twist. I would have given a 4 if I had visited in summer I think.

The hotel itself was nice. Complimentary beer on arrival, Japanese and french restaurant onsite (we didn't eat there though) and the room was nice and clean. Decor a bit old-style and grand for my liking but certainly nice and comfortable. The bathroom was big and roomy and better than most. Even had a shower and a bath, which is nice because I got sick of showering in small baths. Even had free wifi in the room! View over the beach was also nice. Staff friendly and spoke english well.

I would certainly consider staying in summer (especially if you stayed 2 or more nights) but not winter.
