I stayed this hotel with my sister. This hotel is good location and has clean room. But unfortunately we went there in off season, so the breakfast was not buffet. On the website, it says they have breakfast buffet, so we were really disappointed. The taste was okay though. Sometimes some stuffs seem ignore us and it was not impressive...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights with included dinner and breakfast. It's true, the hotel and rooms are quite dated. However, to be honest we were actually quite pleased with the room because it was spacious compared to the rest of our accomodation in Japan. We had become used to cramped rooms so we very much enjoyed...

First things first. This hotel aint cheap. We paid over $300AUD per night, and forked out extra for the French dinner and daily buffet breakfast. The rooms are not only worn, but worn out. The 'sofa' in our room was so had-it, it was a disgrace. Thoroughly stained, torn and threadbare - it should have been thrown in the dumpster...

We chose this hotel because of it's scenic location (just by the lake, with Kegon waterfall within walking distance), and the availlability of private onsen (for a fee of 2000 yen for 50 minutes). It was a bit pricey but we wanted rooms with attached bathrooms (cheaper hotels in this area appear to come only with shared bathrooms). Lobby staff...

This was a one nite stay after we traveled from Tokyo to Nikko to see the Nikko Toshogun Temple. The hotel is at 3200 feet above sea level and there is a lake nearby. It is beautiful. And early morning walk near lake is a must. The restaurant serve fine and elegant food and there are hot water springs available...

My mother and I visited the Nikko Lakeside hotel and really enjoyed the experience. The hotel rooms are a little dated. That said, the bed was comfortable and the room exceptionally clean. From a service point of view, the NLH team were first class. We got off the bus and it was raining. We saw employees running frantically toward us...

We stayed here for two nights. The location is fantastic - just on Lake Chuzenji and close to most of the main hiking trails in the area. The access to the hiking trails in particular is excellent. If you want to focus on the Nikko shrines, this may not be for you as it's a forty minute bus journey back...

Its nice to come to nikko on a sunny day and the hotel is good even just for a half day stay. If you make a reservation for lunch they will also allow you to use their onsen which is also very nice. Afterwards you can enjoy the lakeside view, which you can also enjoy while in the onsen.

The natural onsen is great though it is a minute or less away from the hotel main building. Beautiful landscape with lake and mountain view. Minutes away to the great Kegon falls by walking. Bus stops in front of the hotel from Nikko/Tobu Nikko stations. The hotel is clean and the staffs are nice. Good food. We only have breakfast.
