5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Wonderful hotel and excellent service. Breakfast was a good Japanese style one. We left something behind and the staff had already kept it safe for us when we had returned to get it. Room is a decent size that fit a family of 4 with young children. Love the view of the mountains from the room and restaurant. Excellent base for exploring the Aso area.

    Stay here For the view

    It's the view of the mountain range that deserves a stay at this hotel. Service Staff is friendly and food is good too. Kids meal is good too. Impressive standard given its a basic hotel. We went for a walk at the rice fields which is opposite the hotel, nice and calm. The only downside is the onsen which is too basic and rundown.
