Although, the new Western style guestrooms are a part of ‘Nishimuraya Hotel Shogetsutei’, it is like a separate highly qualified small resort hotel with a new restaurant ‘Ricca’. Originally these old Japanese style rooms in the ‘Tsukinoto’ guest house have rather less beautiful vista and could not set normal rate than other rooms. These rooms had been usually arranged for group guests in lower rate. The new Western style guestrooms are therefore built for expecting new customers ‘Dankai-junior’ generations (30s-40s). These generations tend to fond of highly qualified rather small resort hotels than large scale gorgeous ones.

Comfort Suite is only two rooms available. The suite room of this type is consisted of a twin bed room, a living room with sofa and dinning furniture set, a bathroom, and a walk-in closet. One of the Comfort Twin is connectable to the Comfort Suite.

Arrangement of tools and amenity goods in the new Western style guestrooms

Usually, it is said that generations in 30s-40s are infatuation with big-name brands. They are not simply concerned about major brands but something different value among them.  

Amenity goods and equipments in the new Western style rooms are carefully selected to match their demands. A fat screen TV, a blue-ray player, a digital sound projector, a Bluetooth audio receiver, a Wi-Fi, a LAN terminal, an air cleaner, a humidifier, and a hair dryer are standard arrangements. And French spa brand ‘Omnisens’ products are arranged in the bathroom.

Local made or related materials are positively used in the renovation project

Because, Yukata cotton kimonos are indispensable for their guests when they go out for ‘Sotoyu’ tour in Kinosaki. These new stylish Yukatas were designed in local oriented motifs which are well suited to their guests in 30s-40s.
