The hotel is in a great location, and the spa baths were the best we came across in 3 weeks in Japan. The room was very spacious, and it was good that there was a seating area with a couple of chairs in the window ( with great views), unlike most traditional ryokans. The dinner w

You feel like you're in a luxury hotel the moment you reach Hotel Nakanoshima. Great reception upon arrival. Room is large. But I've to give it 4 star because there's no wifi in the room. The breakfast and dinner are average quality. I was expecting a lot better. The room is nice

We arrived at the hotel after a short walk from the train and a ferry ride.
The Ryokan has recently been renovated and is more like a hotel with a large lobby, shop and entertainment area.
Our room was large with an enclosed balcony and beautiful ocean views. The futons were dou

This was such a beautiful ryokan. I wish we would've had more time here because it had shops, a large game room, many and very beautiful onsen, very kind and helpful staff, delicious food, beautiful views - so peaceful and serene, meeting rooms, a maze throughout the hotel to inv

Peaceful view from our room's balcony right on the ocean.
Since we have to take a boat to the hotel, where do we park our car?
hi how often is the boat from the mainland dock to the hotel? And is it easy to get from the hotel to nachi falls. thanks
It is easy to get to Natchi Falls. A local bus ride. Tell the bus driver you want to exit for the hike to the falls. Best bet is to visit the tourist info office near the bus station and get the info and map on getting there.

Hi all, I booked the place through Kumano Travel but they don't seem to have different meals to choose from for supper, whereas other websites do. Does anyone know if there are different courses available, e.g. some of the pics I see on tripadvisor has lobster sashimi while others don't?
The meals for dinner are kaiseki style or numerous dishes/courses. Westerners will know it by Chefs Choice. Breakfast is buffet style

Can we drop off our baggages at the hotel nakanoshima's information centre, beside the pier?
The hotel's information centre is across the road from the pier. We dropped off our luggage with the person there before going off to park our car, and the designated carpark is a distance away. They run a shuttle service between the carpark and the pier office. However, you are expected to pick up your own luggage and bring it with you on the ferry over to the hotel.

Hi, We are trying to decide on a room choice. It seems like building one is more dated and you have dinner in the restaurant buffet style, while building two is more updated and you have dinner in your room??? The question is, is building OK ? Is dinner in your room worth the extra money? I
I only stayed in building one but I walked past building two during my stay. The latter did look fancier. I think the food delivered to your room tends to be in a higher quality, but if this is your first onsen hotel experience, perhaps eating in the restaurant might not be a bad choice, for that gives you a really authentic atmosphere. I enjoyed eating in the restaurant surrounded by Japanese people.

"Rooms at the side where Breakfast and Dinner are located have great views."
"Ryokan or western-style rooms? We chose ryokan. Mattresses were thin but rooms were very nice. The ocean below our balcony was awesome."
"better choose "華" building"
"We chose Building 2 as it's not too near to the ferry drop off point at the hotel lobby."
"Overlooking the sea"
