Calling itself a Business Hotel, but with a restaurant, hall for weddings, conference room, and, in the summer, a rooftop beer garden, the Hotel New Hayata in Hyuga City in Miyazaki looks and feels more like a regular hotel.
Located 100 meters off Route 10, the main road running down the coast of Miyazaki, and a short walk south of the JR station in Hyuga City, it is located right on the banks of the river and half the rooms have great views over the river.
I paid 3,900 yen for a single room with all the standard amenities:- TV, phone, hairdryer, en-suite bathroom etc. There was no internet access in the room but it is available in the lobby and wi-fi in the restaurant. Breakfast, Japanese or Western style is an additional 600 yen.
