My family visited the area in search of a nice onsen with a view. We arrived just after 3pm and unfortunately were turned away as they said public use of onsens is only prior to 3pm. Can anyone else confirm this? We found a nice indoor/outdoor onsen down the road anyway.
Beautiful and Serene hotel with good amenities. Staff is friendly- Special mention for Jae Hyeong Jeong who helped in catering vegetarian food for us. Thanks for helping us have a wonderful experience. The hotel has beautiful view. Rooms are tidy and hotel offers a lot of activities for guests and kids. Check in could have been quicker and more easy though... They didnt allow for early check in by 1 hr even with kids and family which I feel is could have been easily accommodated. Otherwise friendly and helpful staff.
Enjoyed a nice summer night in this hotel, room had a nice view of the lake, onsen (hot spring waters) were great and the buffet was to die for. The hotel had a very nice fireworks show at night . There's also a very good souvenir shop in the lobby, be sure to check it out.
This is a huge hotel in a spectacular location. We were first shown rooms that were appalling. Old, dirty, tired and stank of smoke. We were then moved to recently upgraded rooms which were fine. Arrived in the morning in the rain and told that despite its size they don’t serve lunch! Not many options in the town either. No one at reception spoke even basic English. Obliged to have the dinner breakfast package. This is served in a huge dining hall as a buffet. Very uninspiring food. Also the hotel bar does not open till 830 pm so can’t get a drink before dinner. The onsen is magnificent with both indoor and outdoor baths overlooking the lake.
Stayed for two nights in July. The lobby, lake view and onsen was fantastic. However the room we were assigned was old and smelled of cigarette smoke - we booked a Japanese style room. The bathroom had a musty sewer smell. We found out later that they still allow smoking in these rooms. The air purifier that the hotel brought after we complained about the smell did not help much. Fir the second nigh we were switched to an upgraded room (but were charged an additional uograde fee). For people sensitive to cigarette smoke i would only recommend this resort if you get an updated room on a non-smoking floor. The breakfast and dinner were buffet style and the selections were excellent. The food choices were identical over the 2 days however.
Rooms - A bit dated with a smallish window that cant be opened, and with pre-fabricated toilets. Room smells kinda damp, and the only way to let fresh air in is through a tiny old tech ventilation shaft. The tiny window makes viewing the fireworks not as enjoyable. Onsen - Great with good views and multiple variety Food - Dinner buffet was fantastic with vast selection, breakfast is awesome too Pool area - Kids would love this mini water park, with a wave pool and a couple long slides. Location - A bit far from centre, if you want to swan boat/ cruise then you need to drive around 5m Previously we stayed in nonokaze, so I would recommend staying in nonokaze for the rooms and the location, and stay here in toya sun for the food and the mini water park (and slightly cheaper price).…
We were given one of the old rooms with a very strong smoke smell. Wallpaper was peeling away and the decor was very dated and a bit creepy. The bathroom was old and seems like it was from the 80’s. The toiletries provided were of poorer quality than from the other hotels where we stayed. The plus side was there is a beautiful lake view. Wonderful scenery and great onsen view. Swimming pool is very big. Fireworks at night , maybe it was a weekend treat. Hotel staff provided an air purifier to help reduce the smoke smell though it didn’t really helped much. Request for a newly renovated non-smoking room for a comfortable night’s stay, else the stay will be quite disappointing.
Clean and nice room. Room was newly renovated. View of Lake Toya just in front of room and fireworks is available, provided nice weather in the night. Best stay ever. Nice food and spa as well. Highly recommended.
Very nice onsen view Front hotel very new and nice but room a bit old and very bad smoke smell Good staff to change room that less smell Buffet morning is very good, but dinner is so so I love onsen panorama lake view!
Large hotel with stunning lake views and a great onsen experience. Room was spotless with comfortable traditional Japanese style beds, which was a novelty. The buffet breakfast and dinner selections were awesome. Girly holiday for me & my daughters and we enjoyed it so much.
