Very good...

Great Ryokan! Beautiful surroundings and friendly staff. Lovely Onsen - indoor and outdoor. Although boyfriend was disappointed that we didn't see any monkeys. Had a great Japanese meal in the evening and breakfast. Totally recommend!!

Excellent service from front desk who helped out on our wifi connection, as it didn't work on the 1st night on arrival. The chef also made his best efforts in preparing western breakfast for us on the 3rd morning as we prefer not to have rice for breakfast. Hot spring is good. Food varieties for dinner is only ok, as...

Excellent service and yummy tofu skin and tofu at dinner and breakfast. The outdoor onsen was great. Providing an hour and half bus tour of the waterfalls and landscape was wonderful for us as we did not rent a car. Taking buses to the sights would take a lot longer.

A perfect Stay with Hotel Shikisai for 2 nights during Christmas/New Year break. We had a modern Japanese room with open bath and private terrace. The hotel supply Japanese traditional clothes to wear within the compound for a 100% Japanese experience. The place is amazing with shared but not busy indoor and outdoor onsen that open most of the time....

This is my second time in Nikko but it's the first time we go up hill to stay in a resort next to Chuzenji Lake. We stayed at Shikisai for two nights and it was totally relaxing and amazing. Our room is overlooking a little forest by the lake. There is nothing much to see during winter but we still...

My family stayed here for two nights. Its a very pleasant hotel, the staff are polite and obliging and the breakfast and dinner is very good. I went to the hotel's onsen both nights and it's very relaxing ; soaking beneath a maple tree while snow flutters down. It's a little out of the way though, the center of Chuzenji...

We booked Shikisai based on Tripadvisor feedback. Service is friendly and impeccable. The room was well appointed, facing the woods with lake Chuzenji in the background. The Kaiseki meal was ok but we expected more for the price we paid. The gender segregated onsens comprised of an indoor and two outdoors. Setting was great, the water quality was good and...

Living in Japan I know what to expect from a Japanese hotel so I expected Shikisai to be a little tired in places with service to make up for it; their service is great, and the place could do with an upgrade but overall things ere fantastic. The staff try super hard to make you feel welcome and have English...
