10/10 Exceptional

We came to Yakushima to hike in the ancient forests, and the Seaside hotel worked well as a base. This small hotel is walking distance from the ferry dock, and from bus stops for the public bus. The busses only run a few times per day, and the hotel staff were very helpful to us in figuring out our transportation. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We did not use the onsen, but it appeared popular with the other guests. Kaiseki dinner and breakfast buffet were included with our room, which was nice since the town is a bit of a walk from the hotel.

6/10 Good

Don’t think I will return or recommend
I do not think this is a hotel that should go on sale on This is a typical Japanese onsen getaway type of hotel full of elderly groups and local families. Level of English is almost bare. It’s a very tired hotel although they struggle very hard to keep it under good conditions. Hotel staff are not very helpful probably because they do not care too much about foreign visitors. Their elderly groups and local families form a high percentage of their business. Yakushima is a fantastic place which I will revisit in the near future, but DEFINITELY not this hotel. I will not recommend my friends to stay here.
