5/5 Excellent

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

Service here was amazing. Staff came to greet us at the car and made us feel special throughout our stay. We paid for a room with our own private onsen as we have tattoos and have not managed to visit an onsen after 4 trips to japan. It was well worth the money. Several staff members spoke to us in English. Food was spectacular. We have stayed in dozens of hotels around the world, and this was definitely our favourite of them all.

Absolutely lovely and a great Japanese experience

We chose this hotel for its location in the middle of the village, within a reasonable walkable distance from the station and to the Monkey park. The staff were absolutely lovely and the traditional Japanese breakfast and evening meal were superb. Our room was a really large traditional Japanese style bedroom with futons on the floor. It also had plenty of storage space. We had a private toilet, but it didn’t have a shower or bath. However, the hotel’s own Onsen was so close it made using it preferable to using a shower. This was our first experience of using an onsen and it made it our preference whenever available elsewhere. It also had a room where you could sit and paint or have coffee. The monkeys at the park were so much fun that we were there for hours.

Very nice, relaxing stay in quiet hot spring town

The hotel is a traditional Japanese Ryokan with rooms complete with Japanese decor, tea and futon type beds. The whole hotel’s ambiance was very zen and taste fully decorated. There is even relaxing music playing in your room when you check in. The hotel has its’ own hot spring/bath. There is no private shower in the rooms, which may bother some westerners but did not bother us. You also have access to the 9 public baths throughout town when staying here. All in all lovely stay but staff speak very limited English so be ready with your phrase book or try to learn some Japanese before you go.
