The Lodge was close enough to Nikko to hike, for us. All hotel personnel were friendly and accommodating. Not really anything to complain about.
Very accommodating service. The host and the staff are all friendly and happy to give customers necessary helps as possible. Convenient and inexpensive baggage store service, you can check out the lodge and go for trip with nothing, then on your way bakck, you just pick up your baggages at the cafe which is only 2 minutes walk from the Nikko Tobu station. I had a good time and I will consider to stay at this lodge again next time I go to Nikko. The location is a little bit farer away form the station than I though. It costs 700~800 Japanese yen to get to the lodge from Nikko station by Taxi. If you have heavy baggages or the it is raining or snowning, I suggest that you grab a taxi for access.
The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Although the hotel seems a little dated it is charming. I would stay there again and recommend to others
If you want Japanese style rooms, then this is the one. Not the kind of normal hotels which you stayed before. Comes with onsens! Perfect. The food is great! Served in Japanese style. We like this place a lot. Thanks!
