6.3 Good
Pros: The staff were all lovely, polite and helpful.. The onsen was fun but smelt quite strongly of chlorine. The view was spectacular and the room was very big.
Cons: It was very dated . Didn't like the smell of smoke in the corridors. The food was bland and lacked taste. There was plenty of food and it looked great but we were really disappointed by the lack of taste. We've been in Japan 2 weeks and eaten in lots of tiny eateries and had some delicious food and whilst here was our most expensive stay and the presentation was great the flavour let it down hugely . The salad at breakfast looked a day old very limp . The prawn was a grey pink, not fresh looking , the tofu was boiled in a pot of water with mushrooms and had no flavour . The dinner misso tasted like water with some seaweed strips in it . And we were served a grilled fish head ? There's hardly any meat on a fish head . The chopsticks were the cheap wooden ones you get free from 7/11 when you buy food and have to split them . I've never had these in a restaurant , even tiny eateries give you nice chopsticks .It was just not what we expected from the price tag . Very disappointing.

Pros: We stayed at Apa Hotel Wakayama for one night during a week long road trip. Check in was quick and easy. The room was clean and comfortable and came stocked with all the toiletries we needed. Checkout was also quick and easy. I'm 7 months pregnant so my husband went to load the car while I waited in the lobby with our 1.5 year old. He found the car battery had died in the night so our car wouldn't start. I asked the front desk if there was a nearby service station we could contact to get a jump but her fellow desk agent offered to come take a look at it. Once he confirmed the battery was dead he offered to go get his own car from another lot and give us a jump. With his help we were able to get our car started and continue with our trip. He definitely went above and beyond and we can't thank him enough!
