We stopped by at this hotel on our route in the area and it is nothing special as a hotel and rather expesive. The good thing is that the rooms are very big and the views in front of the ocean are beautiful.

A grandmother of an hotel. Large property on a hill that looks upon the sea.

Many local guests and many tour groups too. As it should be, as this is a large hotel with a very good onsen that is large enough to cater for the hotel guests as well as day visitors to the onsen.

A good omiyage shop and some entertainment for the kids in the games room. Other facilities include a karaoke bar for some night life.

Hotel breakfast is adequate in a large dining room with samples of the local produce such as the large and very tasty umeboshi. The umeboshi were so good, we bought quite a few as omiyage.

High on the hill overlooking the bay, Kii-Oshima and the remarkable Hashigui-iwa rock formation, this holiday hotel lords over the town – as it has done for decades. Which cues its biggest shortcoming – it’s getting old and needs a major refurbishment. However it was comfortable enough for an overnighter.

The good: our ocean view twin room was one of the largest standard hotel rooms we have experienced in Japan. All the necessities were there and in customary Japanese fashion, it all worked as expected and was scrupulously clean.
Breakfast is a good spread of Japanese staples however make sure you get in before the bus tour groups (if any) as it’s quickly cleaned out and slow to be replenished. Plenty of free parking. The staff are universally polite and accommodating and their English is usually enough to get by on.

The not so good: the hotel décor and furnishings are dated but the bathroom in our room was a trip through a museum of the late 70s. Everything was in good order and worked fine but it was just old hat – as was the functionality which was a salient reminder of the no-so-good old days. Given the size of the room the bathroom is miniscule and a very limited place to get anything done.
The ocean view rooms get some noise from the train line down below but there doesn’t seem to be any trains overnight. We couldn’t get the included wifi to work but then we didn’t try too hard. During our spring stay the air-conditioning was little more than a fan. Whether it performs any better in more testing conditions is not known.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are the pick

This is the first hotel in Japan I've been to where service is completely restricted to the front counter.

There is no one to show you to your room or to introduce the hotel facilities. It should be noted that, although there are two restaurants on site, the hotel seems to actively discourage patronage.

We were told the Japanese restaurant would only be available after 8pm for dinner, because it was fully booked, so we headed into town instead. However, we returned before 8pm to find the restaurant deserted, obviously unused.

Aside from lack of restaurant facilities, the baths are nice, with a fantastic view of the hashigui-iwa rocks, and rates are extremely reasonable.

Hotel was up on a small hill with quiet surrounding. It would be more convenient for guests with their own car as it was about 5 mins. uphill drive from town.

We got a room facing the ocean and Kii Oshima, with excellent view of Hashikui-Iwa Rocks, you could also get the good view from hotel garden outside the breakfast area. We arrived there after dark so didn't manage to see the sunset but if you wake up early enough, you can view the sunrise together with the Rocks at dawn.

Room was spacious with two double sized beds, work desk and a small sitting area. Onsen at basement was big and nice. Also, the small chapel next to Hotel was a good photo spot.

We didn't have dinner at Hotel but took it in town before check-in as we were running late. Be aware that eateries closed early in the small town, so take your meal early to avoid disappointment.

Room Tip: Room with ocean view
