“Tired hotel but lovely onsen”
Reviewed 8 November 2008

As with many other Japanese hotels, the Grand Hotel is pretty charmless to look at from the outside. However, these hotels are designed to offer lovely views from the hotel, and the Grand Hotel was no exception. From our Japanese tatami room, we had a great view of the adjacent river and the lovely autumnal colours.

The hotel is now getting a bit frayed around the edges and it really seems time for a makeover. The carpets and many of the other fixtures and fittings are all getting slightly tired. The other hotels adjacent to the Grand Hotel are much plusher but are also probably a bit more expensive.

The highlight of the hotel was the outside onsen (Japanese bath). Lovely boiling water in the 3 separate baths (2 on the outside balcony) and splendid views to the trees and river below.

The food seemed good, although strictly Japanese.

Overall, a decent stay, let down by the need for a little investment and a couple of paintbrushes.
