Pros: Very cosy with the fireplace
Cons: The checkout time
Location: Location was very convenient with the lake nearby.
Overall, the experience was pleasing. However, the room was a bit small. The staff were very polite and courteous. Onsen was nice as well. The only thing was that the check out time was too early at 10 am and could not be extended.

Private Onsen is awesome

5 out of 5
Posted Aug 6, 2016
Location: There are swan paddle boats you can rent near by to paddle around the lake.
We got the premium room with the the private onsen, the check in process was very nice, they sat us down, provided us with drinks and had us fill out forms in the lobby. The whole process was very relaxed. We then were walked over to our room, they offered to carry our things and than showed us everything in the room. They showed us how to use the AC/Heater, massage chairs, and onsen controls. After they showed us everything they left us. The room was very clean and super nice. The onsen was amazing and worth every dollar. Dinner Buffet was good but not great. I can't say anything great or bad about it.

Room description and title

I found it a bit confusing in room type between Expedia and the hotel. It might be easier if Expedia uses the same room title as the hotel.

Nice Onsen hotel

Posted Jan 4, 2016
Pros: Nice design and very comfort place
The hotel is nice. It had very comfortable environment. The food is good. But the dinning room is in another building that we need to go out from hotel to next building to have breakfast and dinner. The onsen area is not large but it is still good when not much people inside.

Location: Lovely location.
Stayed on half-board. We are Muslim on Halal diet. The staff had no understanding of the Halal diet, so I explained our restrictions. We were taken aback by the tremendous effort they took to cater to our needs! We truly enjoyed our meals and felt really well-taken care of. Rooms were so clean and spacious for solat. The best experience ever!
