My partner and I planned on camping and the campsites had closed for the season, so we went looking for options. This hotel was great! We ended up staying an additional night here, and plan to incorporate it into trips to the area in the future. The family that ran the hotel were wonderful and patient with the language barrier at times. We hope to stay again!

Friendly and comfortable
A small hotel that was friendly and comfortable. The view of the Okhotsk Sea from the room and terrace was wonderful. As mentioned in the description, you can cook your own meals, and there is free coffee for the guests. It takes a walk of about 20 minutes to get to the port of Utoro (for boat tours of the Shiretoko Peninsula and the bus centre) and "Godzilla Rock". There is a ramen and yakitori restaurant about 10 minutes from the hotel. I would definitely stay there again if I have the chance to revisit Utoro!

a perfect place
A perfect place in Shiretoko. Friendly staff, pretty spacious rooms and nice public space for breakfast and relaxing. They can also give a ride to one of the restaurants in the city (of their choice) which can be very useful (restaurant will give a ride back). Free parking space and great sea breeze

8/10 Very good

We got a spacious room with a picture window of the frozen sea. However, the facilities were a bit dated. E.g,still using old water taps no mixers. But overall it was a pleasant stay

Amazing Hospitality & Great Vibe!
The hotel was about 20mins by foot from the Utoro Onsen Bus Terminal, so it was slightly inconvenient with our luggages. That said, the owner of the inn was really friendly and welcoming, which more than made up for the inconvenience. She even gave us 2 bicycles to use for free during our stay (compliments for guests who did not travel by car) and drove us to the Bus Terminal several hours after the check-out time. Facilities-wise, the pantry/kitchen was very cosy and comfortable; the balcony a great place to relax and view the surrounding scenery, the room clean, thoughtfully decorated and well-equipped (hairdryer, kettle etc). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here (and also playing with the adorable dog!).

Beautiful view, great staff
Hotel is on a quite part of the old coastal highway now bypassed by a tunnel. Rooms are small but well-equipped and the view over the harbour is great. The staff is really friendly and helpful and the restaurant serves excellent pizza with local ingredients.
