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.
