Hotel Dormy Inn Takamatsu
Reviewed 19 July 2017 via mobile

Centrally located within walking distance if various railway stations, this hotel was really giving the most value for the (little) money spent. We had a great sleep in the small, clean room, enjoyed the free breakfast, and after a busy day exploring some of the 88 temples, we enjoyed the onsen, the free midnight noodles at 22:30. Great experience!

Hotel Dormy Inn Takamatsu is touristy, thanks to its amazing location at the center of the strategic shopping area surrounded by shops, restaurants, Karaoke and clubs.

We stayed there as a hub to travel to other neighboring prefectures, didn't really stayed inside that much. The services, staff performances and facilities are good, can't complain indeed. We think this hotel is being loved by many tourists from mainland China particularly as Mandarin speaking receptionists are ready. A bit surreal that a few moment you would think you were staying in a hotel based in China.

Room area is small, forgivable though, it is pretty a standard you have to accept in any cities of Japan. But absolutely clean and neat, good sleep is not a problem.

There is a hot spring (artificial) facility at the 11 floor. It's a lovely one but small that will have "capacity" issue if more guests keep coming up. The opening time is very long too, means hotel maintenance team could just have a few hour a day to do the cleaning.

If you ask me the water quality of the hot spring, I would say "acceptable", it is my personal view that you can't just expect what you can get in a quiet and low key ONSEN in other remoted location mainly for local Japanese. I believe the management of this hotel is already trying their very best to keep the quality of everything as I can see notices in multiple languages to "educate" tourists the "etiquette" of doing hot spring.

Japan is a prestige and one of the best places in the world for tourism, but if tourists keep coming and not learning to treasure the ways how they get used to keep things clean, neat and quiet. This amazing country, just like this lovely hotel will sooner or later overwhelmed by us - as a tourist !

If anyone will visit this hotel, while enjoying the hot spring let's think how we can do our part to keep the water clean and not talking for few minutes.

Thank you very much for your comments. As you have mentioned in this message, a plenty of guests from the mainland of China have kept coming to visit us since longtime and unfortunately many of them don't respect the rules actually and we get frequent complaints from Japanese guests, that is at the moment one of must solve for us. We need to reflect on this problem to reduce it as soon as possible and we believe at least this effort would also bring a better result to everybody in Japan for the present and the future as well. We know it is not low and cultural problem so quite hard to be realised on their own for non-Japanese, but we are just required to carry on looking for a good answer until when we can figure it out. We thank you again and hope you will find it better next time.

The accommodation in Takamatsu is very tight no matter is Dormy Inn or Tokoyo Inn……………Last Nov, I tried Tokoyo Inn Hyogomachi (兵庫町) and it was closed to JR Takamatsu Station (with 15 mins walking distance). This time, I booked Dormy Inn which located in Kawaramachi district (瓦町) from 25-27 Mar 2017. We needed to take 2 tram stops from Takamatsu tram station, it cost 190 yen per journey. Of course, it could be walked from JR Takamatsu Station to Dormy Inn but it took around 30 mins. Therefore, it’d better taking tram.

For tram, we got off at Kawaramachi station and left the exit of Kawaramachi FLAG. Took escalator to the ground and there was a drug store at right side. Then, crossed the road and went straight………….after few mins, we reached the entrance of food street and we went in the street………..walked………..till the exit of food street………..turned left………….Dormy Inn was there within few meters. Within 10 mins walk from Kawaramachi station to Dormy Inn.

Dormy Inn is located the centre of Takamatsu. Shopping malls and food street are nearby Dormy Inn. There was an onsen in the inn but I didn’t try. Also, the inn provided free soy sauce ramen as late supper from 21:30 to 23:00. I tried and it was ok.

For room, I booked a twin room and it was a bit bigger than Toyoko Inn. It was clean.

For breakfast, the food was more than Toyoko Inn but we needed to wait for long to have seats. On 26 Mar, we waited for 15 mins to have seat. On 27 Mar, we waited for 30 mins to have seat. Haaaahaaaa………the queue time was depends on when and how many occupants stayed in the inn. Anyway, the taste was standard level but not excellent as what other comments stated in the web.

For dinner, I tried 2 restaurants on food street and one of them was highly recommended by me. It named “燒肉ホル乇ソ けむリ家”. It was a bbq restaurant and mainly provided wagyu (和牛) and other meats. It was very delicious and price was very reasonable. We (total 7 person) spent 22,000 yen to have wagyu, pork, chicken and etc.

If you travel Shodoshima – Marukin Soy Sauce Factory (小豆島丸金醬油廠), I would like to recommend a restaurant for lunch, it named “イート” which near the soy sauce factory with 10 mins walk. This restaurant is operated by a young couple. The exterior look of the restaurant is not like a restaurant. The inner is a warm family restaurant. There is a set menu for lunch. The man is a cook and his wife is an assistant + waitress. They cooked the dishes very fast and all dishes like artworks. The taste was very good!!!! I recommended to try dessert and you won’t disappoint.

Stayed here for three nights early April. Loved this city. The rooms are very small but like everything in Japan, also very efficient. There was a permanent hot coffee machine in the foyer which was great, the onsen was very lovely also. Lots of guests wearing their yukatas around the hotel which I loved, made you feel most at home.
They provide free noodles apparently for breakfast which we never did, but you can also buy a great breakfast at a good price. We found a fantastic breakfast place a block up the road for around $6 AUS. Totally authentic and fresh. Would recommend.

Room Tip: They would be all the same.

We had a three night stay at the Dormy Inn Takamatsu whilst travelling with our adult daughters. The check inn was easy but they did stick to the 3pm check in time even though we arrived about 1.30pm - something to note. We were able to leave our luggage and it was delivered to our rooms when we came back at 3pm. The hotel was clean and tidy - quite a busy spot with 150 rooms. The 11th floor onsen was great and it had washing machines in both the male and female onsens. The rooms are small as per Japanese standards but they were more than adequate - shower and toilet in one area with the sink in a bench in the room which was good for kettle refills etc. one good feature was the ability to open the window for some air - we found most hotel rooms had a setting of 25C when we arrived - way too hot for us! The breakfast at 600 yen was basic but good and in fact on the one day we went elsewhere it was hard to find somewhere open early in the morning. Overall a very good stay and I would stay at the dormy inn chain again - just one thing to note _ the pillows are really hard but the mattresses were fine. Good option at a good price.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the main road - it's noisy.
