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.
