4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Staff was incredible. Very helpful and friendly. The location is beautiful but the decor a little outdated. The room was very smokey but ok once we opened the window to air it out. The food was EXCELLENT. The outdoor onsen was my fave. I would stay here again despite the smokey room - just make sure you request a non-smoking room!

Absolutely amazing!
Ok, so when I booked I must have been rushed and just thought it was expensive. Turns out I got the dinner and breakfast option and was so glad I did. The 9-course dinner will leave you wanting it to never end and yet unable to eat much more. The property has three private Onsen (hot-springs) which makes things just so much more convenient. And the town itself is lovely. There are direct (and slow) local buses from nearby and from Osaka and Kyoto. Watch luggage on local buses as there is no storage other than your lap. I highly recommend this town and hotel

Serenity in one spot
Stayed overnight to try out the full ryokan experience. The place is quite wonderful. All three onsens were extremely relaxing, the scenary was eye catching and the staff were quite helpful. The dinner and breakfast were best food experiences I've ever had. The gentleman that personally checked in me in and the waitress spoke English so I never felt left out. I just wished I stayed another night.
