We came to the hotel for a public onsen while visiting Nikko. The hotel looks a bit outdated form the outside, but was on when visiting inside the hotel. It's a great experience with the Japanese traditional bath for the first time. Staff was polite and helpful. We visited there on a weekday afternoon, no people:-)
This is a great Japanese traditional ryokan style hotel with omotenashi (meaning to wholeheartedly look after guests. The term is a microcosm of the country itself, representing the Japanese mindset of hospitality centring around care rather than expectation) My parents (who living in Japan) my husband and (who living in Canada) are really enjoyed their hospitality. Especially front desk Mr. Salocogi ( I am not sure that was his name) from Nepal who speaks fluent Japanese took cake of us really well. I have to mention about thier Shimotsuki (November) kaiseki dinner. It’s beautifully-crafted dishes are carefully prepared utilizing the season’s finest ingredients. View from our room and onsen (hot spring) are very beautiful as well. There is a Live Piano show at lunge and you can get complimentary teas in front of the shop. This hotel is very close to all Nikko sightseeing places such as Toshogu and Tamozawa Goyotei. Senhime monogatari have been nominated many awards in Japan. We highly recommend It if you are coming to Nikko. …
Stayed two nights at the hotel and it was a treat from start to finish. On our arrival we were met by one of the reception staff and given a very comprehensive guide to the hotel and it’s facilities including the hot baths. Then help was given on sight seeing and bus timetables etc. The rooms were excellent and we had a private dining area in the dining sector of the hotel. The food was excellent quality with service to match. Unfortunately our first day sightseeing was when the area was lashed with 10 inches of rain from the typhoon that was following hard on the heels of Hagibis. The hotel is within walking distance of the main temples, so we walked..... but we were as wet as we could be on our return to the hotel late afternoon. Despite the use of the hotel umbrellas we were soaked and our shoes were saturated. But not an issue, the hotel lent us towels on our arrival in reception and heated air blowing shoe driers - think of hair driers for shoes! Brilliant.. A final mention that the breakfasts were as good as the evening meals. As to the water feature ....just look out of the back windows!…
This was one of the most superb holiday experiences from check in to checkout. The room, the food, the service from all staff was second to none. The Onsen, the dressing in yukuta and sleeping on futons all enhanced the experience.
Stayed 3 nights in a Japanese/Western room, which combined tatami with Western beds. The room was huge and looked out over the river and the mountain. Service was uniformly outstanding. We opted to have breakfast and dinner in a private dining room on the ground floor, but many others were being served in their rooms. On arrival, we requested no beef or pork, and the chef was very accommodating (substituting wonderful fish, lobster, clams, etc., etc.). Another great advantage is the location, only a 5 minute walk to the World Heritage site shrines, and a 10-15 minute walk into town.
This was an awesome hotel for a traditional Japanese experience. Onsen was amazing, with a traditional breakfast not to be missed. Great location for walking around local sites. The staff were also very helpful and kind.
Stayed for a family trip. As soon as we arrived they know exactly who we were and guided us to the lounge area. All the checking in process were done while sitting down over green tea and sweets which greatly helped when you are traveling with elderly. It is conveniently located just a stroll away from all the temples. On the second day hotel arranged a bus tour for the must see attractions in the far areas in the morning. Dinner and breakfast were served in a private room which were full course Japanese feast (with an option for western style breakfast for those who are not keen to start the day with full on Japanese). Onsen was very clean and had varieties of bathes. Their massage chair in the changing area was free and to die for. They had good selection of amenities. No need to bring wash bag. They also had an in room massage service which was good. We took advantage of the post check out onsen service which you just pay extra for towels. It was really nice to have access to one last soak after long cold day of sightseeing before catching the train. They have a very helpful English speaking staff which is reassuring for non Japanese speaking guest. In conclusion I highly recommend this place for the price and what they offer. One thing to note is we visited around the end of the year which is not the peak so the experience may be different if you visit during the busy season.…
Great location - about 100 metres away from the Unesco site. Hotel provides complementary shuttle service to and from the train station. Hotel is in perfect condition and the room is very spacious. From the time you are picked up from the train station to check out time, the service is immaculate. It is really a rare find. Do include the Kaiseki dinner and breakfast, they are of excellent quality. Would definitely stay here again.
Everyone who visits Japan should try the ryokan experience. This is top of the range. We had a Japanese-style room which was large with a table and chairs and comfortable easychairs. We have stayed in a smaller room in a ryokan elsewhere and it was a bit uncomfortable, especially when they took the bed away and there wasn't much left to sit on! We ate Japanese food morning and evening and I wish I was eating it now. They do a magnificent kaiseki. We cannot recommend this place too highly.
We stayed at Senhime Monogatari for two days in mid-october, parents and two adult children. When we arrived, our suitcases were taken off us and brought to the room, and we were sat at a low table in the foyer with green tea and japanes snacks. After a little while, a staff member approached us to check us in. He gave us an overwhelming amount of information, including bus time tables, vouchers giving discount at sights and possible times for breakfast and dinner. We were then taken to our room by another member of staff, who introduced us to our room. We had a japanese room, meaning that it was equipped with tatami-mats where you must not wear any form of shoes.During the day, there was a (very low) tea table and four legless chairs in the room. At night while we were out for dinner, the furniture was pushed aside and beds were made on futons on the floor. In fact, the room was rather a suite, since it had an adjoining room with a wooden floor and four 'western-style' lounge chairs. Further, there was a toilet (where you donned toilet slippers placed just inside) - almost needless to say, this was a japanese toilet with inbuilt washing and bidet functionality and a heated seat. Finally, a bathroom with a tub and shower. An ample supply of toiletries were available.The woman who took us there served us tea while she told us about how to use the yukata (a kind of cotton kimono), toe socks and slippers provided, and how to use the onsen = hot baths. While we stayed there, we had dinner one of the two days. There was only one option, the full kaiseke-dinner (lots of small dishes), but that was really overwhelming. Delicious as it were, none of use were able to finish all the interesting dishes. Therefore, the next day, we decided to eat out. Alas, we found that all eateries in walking distance from the hotel were either closed for the season, or they had closed at four or five. This is a piece of information that we would have liked to have had on the first day! As it turned out, we ended up having cup noodles from the local convenience store in the room, which was luckily equipped with a water cooker. The onsen was great. In the women's area, there were four tubs: A large tub with hot water (and it is really hot!), an outdoor hot tub, a hot jacuzzi and a tub with mineral water (quite skimmed-milk.looking, feeling very soft against the skin). Again, ample supply of toiletries including a large range of hair products. Nice! Finally, Nikko is quite a tourist spot. We had planned to go to a nearby lake, but were not able to go there, since the buses were already full when they reached our stop. We managed to go to the other major sight, one of Japan's most famous shrines, the Toshogu Shrine, which is really impressive. But try to get there early, as crowds form quickly!…
