坂本出身の父母のお墓参りの機会を利用し、息子やその家族に比叡山延暦寺を知ってもらおうと考え宿泊しました。 孫たちは根本中堂の朝のお勤めにて「おかゆ」の法話を聞き、印象的だったようです。

湖側のお部屋を選びました。 広くて、清潔感があり気持ちよく過ごせました。 特に朝の湖の部屋からの眺めは素晴らしかったです。 朝のお勤めに参加して、住職さんのお話を聞けたのも清々しく、とても良かったです。 お食事は精進料理でしたが、色々と工夫して料理されていて、とても美味しくいただきました。 また利用したいと思います。

感染予防対策のため宿泊者を大幅に制限しているようで、絶対に蜜にならないようになっています。スタッフはみなさん感じがよく、参拝とすばらしい眺めでとても快適に過ごすことができました。大津京からの送迎もあり助かりました。また利用したいです。
