Cleanliness, staff's hospitality and delicious meal

It is a very neat, clean and beautifal Ryokan at a reasonable price. Welcoming staff and delisious dinner and breakfast is also a plus. Even though it has a bit away from the main road, it was not difficult at al to find its location. Besides, a big supermarket, gourmet city, is nearby, so we could get yummy Japanese snacks and beer. I'd like to recommend this Ryokan those who are searching for a perfect place which makes thier holiday perfect at a affordable price.

Excellent Services and Experience”

The staff is so nice and provide good service to us. In the dining session, the staff will introduce the food items one by one to you politely. Whenever you have requests, just call them and they always satisfy you. Of course, other than services, the food is also very delicious. The most impressive part is that the staff speak our mother language to ask us whether the food is tasty or not. We have never told them we came from Hong Kong but they knew that we spoke Cantonese to us. For the Family Spring baths and Public Spring bath, both of them are excellent too. Family Spring baths give us privacy and closed environment to relax, while Public Spring bath is like a paradise. One more thing, if you ready enjoy Spring Bath, you can definitely try the Family Spring baths with Spy Function. Add 1000 JPY to enjoy this Family Spring Bath but definitely worth it. An impressive memory for you to try this bath.
