Out of all the places I stayed in Japan, this was my favourite. Nestled down some quiet side streets in picturesque Nikko, I felt like I was in a different world. The staff were really helpful, the breakfast was amazing - definitely worth the 1000 yen. A short walk to all the major parts of Nikko and the bus stop....

This inn was very clean and comfortable. The dining area was particularly nice and we enjoyed the breakfast each morning. The one down side is that guests were allowed to smoke in the sitting room. This was very unpleasant and meant it was off limits to us. Smoking should be outside only!

Checking into the Turtle Inn Nikko was a painless affair. The manager showed me to my room just down the hall, pointed out where the Japanese-style bathrooms were and left me to my own devices. Not bad, considering I turned up well before the advertised check-in time. The room was small, especially the bathroom, but clean and serviceable. The bed...

I stayed here with my wife and kids as well as my parents during a trip to Nikko. It was during low season and I think we were the only guests. My parents got a western room - comfortable and efficient. My family got a large tatami room with shared bathroom. We like tatami rooms because it lets us keep...

We stayed here for one night, which is great as you can see the sights before the tour buses arrive. Welcomed on arrival by English speaking owner and given lots of information on the local area. The area is quiet but you can hear the river which was really nice after the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. The shared Japanese...

In a quiet area by the river easy walking distance from the temples. The shared bathrooms are traditional Japanese style but our room was Western style. Breakfast was available but we went to the nearby Lawson convenience store instead to save some money. At reception they recommended Bell restaurant which is very close and we enjoyed dinner there. You can...

We really enjoyed our stay at Turtle Inn. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and had a very spacious traditional Japanese room. The room had a sink and then shared toilets just over the corridor. The baths were lovely - one single user and one bigger one that was great for two. Breakfast was really nice -...

The Turtle Inn is a clean, pleasant small hotel, a bit removed from the crowds at the World Heritage sites....although within walking distance. There are some nice private tubs available for soaking. The 1,000 yen breakfast (only Western available when we were there) was good and worth ordering. Not many restaurant options close by, but it's a short bus ride...

Loved our experience here at Turtle Inn. Shared bath, and great food. Very friendly staff here and will recommend to my friends. Traditional Japanese sleeping on futons on floor but no worries, very clean. Close to downtown, walking distance to many places.

We stayed in a Japanese style room with shared bathroom and couldn't have been happier with Turtle Inn. The staff are very welcoming and gave us a map and directions to all the local attractions, nearby restaurants and convenience stores and info on passes to the shrines. The facilities are clean and there's an onsen style bathroom. The inn is...
