Stayed here one night to see the Ashikaga Flower Park illuminations and Oya Stone Museum/Kannon. This hotel is steps away from the South Exit of Utsunomiya Station, to the left of McDonald's. Very spacious and modern with wifi, not the fastest but pretty decent. It has coin laundry, which is always a plus. Women get some extra packets of amenities. Quite hot inside even though we turned off the heater but otherwise very comfortable! Good price!

Stayed for two nights in the Richmond (actual one night in each of the twinned hotels). The first thing that strikes you is that it is very modern in comparison with other business hotels. The first room I was given was huge, an unbelievable size compared to standard Japanese hotels. (The second room was still of an above average size for Japan).

Breakfast was a choice between two separate restaurants (one in each hotel), one with a Western buffet breakfast and one offering a Japanese breakfast.

Check-out is very efficient as its a 100% automated process using a machine.

Good location, very near to JR Utsunomiya station.
English breakfast also available.
Prompt and supportive front desk.
Narita airport bus stop is at just 50 metre distance from the hotel.
Plenty of food options available nearby.
I prefer to have dinner at an Indian restaurant, named Ichigo.

Thank you for choosing our hotel.

Our hotel is Thank you for choosing our hotel.

We are glad to hear that you liked the location.

Our hotel is located from Utsunomiya station for about 5 minutes on foot and

close to the bus stop to Narita Airport.

The location is very useful for visitors who would not only visit Nikko by train but travel

by airplane.

We have two different breakfast, Japanese and Western Style buffet, so our guest

could choose the restaurants by what they would like to eat on the day.

Also, there are some restaurants such as Indian. Dumpling, and Japanese

around the station, so the guest can decide from variety of restaurants.

We appreciate that you must be busy but had sent us such a valuable comment.

We are looking forward to see you again.

The room here was larger than in many other hotels. The windows open for fresh air. There are non-smoking floors. The hotel is near the train station. There is a restaurant adjacent to the hotel with an entrance to the lobby. You can use your breakfast coupon here or at the Annex across the street. The restaurant here is also good for dinner, with a good variety of choices and an English menu. There is a coin-operated laundry for guests in addition to a prompt laundry service.

we stayed at the richmond hotel as a quick overnight stopover on the way to Nikko from kobe/kyoto. (due to changed travel plans we were booking short notice and the price for tokyo and nikko was over our budget for a stopover)

you can see the hotel from the shinkansen train station and its about a 1mins walk. come out of the station and trend right. there are 4 of us: 2 adults and 2 boys 12 and 13yrs. we booked a twin room and it was great. $64 per couple. so $130 for us for the night.
its a normal hotel, very clean, very quiet, great service from reception staff. be sure to book non smoking rooms.
free wifi.

the area has plenty of eat options, they all appear to specialise in gyoza (dumplings) which suited us fine as a new eating experience.
hotel has coin wash machine/dryer on level 6 for about 200yen.
breakfast included for 2. i think it was 1200yen per child as extra: choice of western or japanese buffet. normally we didn't bother with bfast as we usually stayed in traditional guest houses but this was a nice experience and bfast was great.

we would stay here again.

Room Tip: level 6 is smoking floor.
