Comfortable, convenient place
This is a lovely little hotel close to the main sightseeing sights of Nikko. The room was basic but clean and warm. The onsen bath was so convenient. They were really helpful by directing me to places and lending me a charger. Unfortunately though they weren’t able to provide a vegan breakfast which would involve providing soya milk instead of cow’s milk and tofu instead of egg, which should be easy in Japan. Thus should be offered if it wants to be considered as an eco hotel.

This is a family-run onsen. It’s a small place which turned out to be good for us as the baths were private & we didn’t have to worry about the spread of COVID19 in the communal baths

We came to Nikko as part of a longer trip around Japan. It was absolutely super. The Turtle Inn was a bit difficult to find as there’s another one called Turtle Annex, but the customer service at both locations was brilliant. There’s free parking and the owner carried our bags upstairs and showed us around. There are hot spring baths that you can have private use of. We stayed in a traditional Japanese room and the futons were laid out for us when we arrived which was great. We fell asleep to the sound of running water from the river outside our room. The hotel is a little bit on the older side and you can tell it’s had a lot of use, but it was clean and I would definitely stay there again.

A real bargain! Clean, cozy, and comfortable. Tatami floors and futons, mineral spring baths.The staff all speak at least some English (the owner is fluent) and were extremely helpful. Very friendly! They recommended places to eat and helped us arrange transportation. The hotel itself is a little dated but the staff’s hospitality and its proximity to Toshogu and the Kanmangafuchi Abyss (10 minutes and 5 minutes, respectively) more than makes up for it. If, like me, you plan to spend most of your time in Nikko sightseeing and exploring, and are just looking for a clean, comfortable, affordable place to sleep and bathe, this is the inn for you.

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
The inn is rather like a hostel than a hotel. It is by a river, and is about 10mins walk from bus stop, sights, and restaurants. It's OK if you don't have luggage, otherwise it will be quite a test. The place itself is decent and clean, just small. Our bad experience mainly came from that the owner insisted in charging us extra because we booked for "1 person" rather than "2", even though we had a double room with bath. He said it rudely that it was either pay up or get out. To subject a guest to that is an experience no hotel guests should do.

Nice hosts, very helpful and polite. The hot bath is great and relaxing after a long day of sightseeing in the cold weather of Nikko. Near to Kanmangafuchi Abyss, nice location for a short hike.
