Would have loved to stay longer here

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Aug 2019
We stayed at this golf club resort hotel as part of our Essence of Japan Tour with Titan and I thought it was absolutely lovely and would have devinitely loved to stay another night.
The hotel is in an isolated position and it wasn't until the next morning that we realised that it is actually located within a volcanic caldera ie a crater formed by a major eruption leading to the collapse of the mouth of the volcano.
We stayed in room 276 which is accessible by lift or stairs. Our balcony overlooked the golf course and also had a beautiful view of the mountains beyond. The room itself had a very different layout to any others that we had stayed in as there were approx. 3 steps down to the beds, table and chairs. On the upper level are wardrobes and a washing area separate from the WC. I would therefore recommend that guests might like to leave a light on at night in case they need to use the loo.
The beds were exceptionally comfortable.
Food: Prior to arrival we were informed that there was only a buffet dinner available at the hotel and that it was best to pre book a table. My husband is not fond of buffets or smash and grabs as he calls them and we had previously checked and discovered that there are no restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Therefore we took our own food and had a bedroom picnic. Most of the people on tour seemed to do this but the few that paid for a buffet seemed to have enjoyed it-sorry but don't know what they had.
Breakfast is provided in an exceptionally spacious room and the buffet was laid out over a wide area so avoiding any crush. There was a good choice but like most of the hotels that we stayed in the fried egg and bacon were almost cold.
There is a shop within the hotel selling a good quality range of products including some very nice ladies clothing.
And now more about the feature of the hotel that I loved best!
Because of the volcanic nature of the area, one of the assets of the hotel is the hot spring Onsen, and I really would recommend travellers to set aside their instinctive modesty and to experience the absolute pleasure of naked bathing in either the inside or outside immaculately clean pools. There are separate pools for male and female, and having done it three times now, my experience is that no-one goes in the pool to stare at anyone else. You don't swim in an Onsen and you don't wash yourself in one. Having already removed clothes and cleansed your body and hair, you simply relax in the wonderfully clean and warm water. The facilities were absolutely marvellous-exceptionally clean, lovely towels provided, lockers for clothes, security lockers for valuables, shampoo, body wash, hairdryers, hairbrushes. Basically you can just walk in and all will be provided for you. Like me, a few of the tour group rushed through breakfast so that they could make use of the Onsen before we left.
So please don't be shy-this really is a wonderful experience not to be missed, and I thought this particular Onsen was absolutely lovely.
If you have your own transport and are looking for something to do, you might wish to take a 10 minute drive to Togendai port, Lake Ashinoko, where you can take a harbour cruise on a "Pirate ship". We found this to be a very pleasurable experience. You could also ride on the cable car and if you are fortunate there are wonderful views of Mount Fuji, or you could take a Duck tour-I would have loved to travel on one of these if we had been travelling independently.
So all in all, the Prince Hotel was lovely and the area was fantastic and beautiful and I'd definitely return given the opportunity.

Rural Mountain setting with good sized spacious room with Lounge sitting area and a balcony overlooking a Golf course. The bathroom had a good hot and strong shower over the high sided bath. The room temperature was hot with the a/c controlled remotely by hotel, no user adjustment posible. The saving grace was that we could open the balcony door for fresh air. A good selection of toiletries along with Free bottled water and WiFi was supplied. A pleasant Buffet dinner, with a range of Western and Japanese dishes was had in the hotel. A Good breakfast was also enjoyed. The Hotel also offers the traditional Japanese Onsen bathing facilities.

Room tip: Rooms overlooking the Golf course and Mountains are a treasure to sit and view.

This Hotel is more of a Resort than a Hotel. It is located in the mountains and it backs onto a golf course and tennis courts.

There are spring baths available, but the notice in the room says no tattoos allowed.
I think it is for the "Yakuza" (Japanese Mafia). So if you are a Caucasian and have a tattoo, you might have to check with the Hotel staff if you can use the Baths.

The rooms are large and very comfortable, with great views from the balcony.

The Hotel has a large open foyer.

The Breakfast/Dining area has very large floor to ceiling windows that give you a great view overlooking the golf course and the mountains in the background.

The breakfast is very nice.

Just a great place to stay.

This hotel is set in a fabulous location in the Japanese Alps on a golf course. The style appears very old fashioned and the rooms are quirky. Fabulous views of trees and mountains from our room on the third floor. There is an excellent Onsen especially the one with an open side with views to the mountains.

Room tip: There is a great hot spring Onsen with terrific views from the hot spring

The hotel was lovely..our room was different but nice, the set up was different with the sink to wash hands was seperate from bathroom.
They did not have coffee or normal teas in the room as it was classed as “wellbeing”
They did have it when you had meals.
The view from our room was lovely except for when one practised swinging the golf club. Luckily we were leaving that morning

Room tip: Ask to not be near the golf driving range if you intend staying more than a two or more days
