We stayed only for a night, but very comfortable. Surrounded with mountains. I loved it! Better to stay here if you have a car. It is like 10-15mins drive from Takachiho Gorge.

Tiny but very neat and well maintained ”

Room is small but equipped with TV, very clean futon and big window. Toilet & bathroom are very clean.Toothpaste & toothbrush for free but towel is chargeable. Kitchen is not for cooking but you have kettle, microwave, utensils (no plates), free teas, milk , sugar. Surrounding view is breathtaking if you can drive in a car or in a bus (bus stop is next to the guest house). This is 8 km away from Takachiho George, 300 meters away from a small grocery store, 300 meter away from a very popular shrine.

気楽に宿泊できた。”

1泊で宿泊。夜は周囲が静かで、よく寝れます。朝は交通量が増えますが、特に問題無し。共通設備も部屋もきれいです。冷蔵庫、レンチン、ポットが自由に使えるので、便利。他の人の口コミにもありましたが、インスタントコーヒーも用意してくれていて、良かったです。Wi-FiもTVもエアコンも快適。オーナーかオーナーの奥様が出迎えてくれましたが、話しやすいいい方です。朝、部屋の鍵を返しに行った時、従業員の方が数人見えましたが、気持ちよく挨拶して送り出してもらえました。

食事が…”

部屋は広くて清潔。ロケーションも国道沿いで天岩戸神社の近く。 ただ夕食できる所が少なく、休みだったり、予約で満員だったりで結局高千穂市内まで車で戻って食べた。近くにあるco-opは18時で閉店。 車やバイクじゃないバスとかで来る人はそれだけは注意した方が良いと思います。

仕方ないけれど防音対策が。。 消灯時間のお知らせや、何時以降はドライヤーは部屋で使ってくださいなど書いて有れば嬉しいです。 ドアの開閉音などが大きいです。 ここから国見ヶ丘の雲海見に行く人や、登山の人も多かったりする場所なので朝早い人はちょっと気になるなーと。 スタッフの方はとても親切でした。 ありがとうございました(^^)

探訪先に徒歩圏内”

探訪先へ徒歩圏内、あいにく唯一の食事処が定休日で地元味を食味できなかったが、食料品調達出来るスーパーも近隣で助かった。受付スタッフさんの案内は気持ち良く、宿は受付向の離れのこじんまりした独立家、バストイレ付きで使い易かったが、玄関と居間兼寝室の仕切りが無いため、隙間か寒さを感じ、また3人分の掛け布団は有ったが敷布団が1人分しか無く他マットのみだけでは冬時期のクーラー暖房での調整は難しく寒さを感じながらの就寝一泊となった点は少し残念に思った。ただ、リーズナブルな宿泊施設としては利便性は高くまたリピートしたい。

とても良かったです。遅くなったのにとても親切に対応してくれました。みかん食べ放題です。またお茶もたくさん持っていて下さいって親切に行ってくださいました。トイレもウォシュレット付きでとても清潔だし、お湯とかインスタントコーヒーもあります。ただお風呂はありません。シャワーのみです。こちらを利用する方に伝言することですが、まずこの場所はすぐ道沿いなのでわかります。近くにコンビニはありません。また食べるところもありません。高千穂郷の方から来る時、天の岩戸神社に行く交差点のところにファミマがあるので、そこでコンビニ飯を買っていくことをお勧めします。ほんとにお値段も安いし、親切だし、清潔だし、言うことありません。本当にお世話になりました。ぜひぜひこちらをご利用なさってください。お部屋も社長室とか、副社長室とか専務室とか分かれてて面白いです。ちなみに私は副社長室でした。

一軒家貸切で地元の生活を疑似体験”

一軒家まるまる一人で貸切で使用させていただきました。 ロケーションは有名な神社の近くで、飲食店やコンビニなどはありませんが車があれば不便ではありません。 スタッフの方も親切で、田舎ならではののんびりとした時間を過ごせるかと思います。 一点、冬に宿泊させていただいたのですが、屋外のお風呂とシャワーは寒すぎて使用できませんでした。 湯船にお湯を溜めても、外なので朝でも寒すぎて入れませんでした。近くに温泉などがあったら文句なしですが、何もない分時間に追われずに済みます。 窓はカギが壊れていたり、使用できなかったりで少し不安でしたが人がそもそも少ないので心配無用かも。

今までで一番のゲストハウス”

初めての高千穂滞在に利用しました。気ままな1人旅なので宿泊は安さ重視で選びましたが、1人でも1棟貸切なので、周りを気にせずに過ごせます。 夜遅くに到着しましたが快く出迎えて下さり、スタッフさんもとても親切です。 何よりとても掃除が行き届いていて、お仕事の丁寧さが伺えます。 露天風呂は手作り感もありますが、元々が土木系の宿舎や事務所だそうで機能的に造られています。 高千穂は夜に開いているお店が少なく、このご時世でさらに短縮営業しています。 キッチンがあるお部屋は自炊も出来るので、私も簡単な炒めモノを作りました。 天岩戸神社と天安河原に徒歩で行けるので、早朝散歩に行くと誰も居なくて神秘的でした。 総合的に建物は古いので好みは分かれると思いますが、私はお部屋もお風呂も存分に堪能させて頂きました! 次に来る際も、こちらで宿泊します。
