Marvellous! Love it so much!”

This is our first time staying at onsen hotel. I think it’s one of the most expensive options at yufuin but the service, environment and food were just fantastic. Service: the hotel will email you a few days ahead and see if you need transportation from yufuin station. The staff were courteous. The girl serving our room can communicate basic English and very caring and helpful. Environment: there is a lot of greenery and we can truly relax there. Both times we went to onsen there were just us - even though the onsen are shared among 3 hotels. Room is spacious, clean and tidy. The hotel is also very close to the lake so it’s easy to go there before sunrise. Food: i can use ‘art’ to describe the food. They were nicely presented, fresh and delicious. Nothing to challenge. I felt very healthy after the meal!

I had stay one night with full set Japanese dinner and breakfast. It is valued to stay here. The food was delicious. The staff arranged all meal setting and bedding in our room. The environment was quiet and beautiful for us to relax and enjoy the onset. There are four onset in total and also a small onset in our room. However, the staff did not explain the route of the four onset and the setting of room onset to us. It is better to mention clearly when the people admit to the room. The hotel just next to the famous lake and at the end of the street. People also can call the hotel from Yufuin station to ask for the transportation.

Very comfy hotel with good services ”

A very comfy traditional Onsen with really good services! We were so excited to have a private bath and a little garden. It is such an enjoyable stay. However, when I went to the public bath, a Hong Kong mother allowed her kids not to take shower before going into the bath. They thought that I was a Japanese and spoke in Cantonese. The kid asked the mom to wait till I left, so that they didn’t have to take shower. So selfish!!!

WONDERFUL STAY! The hotel is very close to the famous lake and within short walking distance if you want to see the best scene of the late in the morning. Room is spacious with hot spring bath tub. Dinner and breakfast are served in the room. They are very very delicious and beautifully presented. Hotel service is wonderful and impeccable. The pretty lady that served us can speak good English. She is polite and detail minded. Shuttle car service was provided in the morning to the train station. This is a very thoughtful service. One thing that made me feel uncomfortable is that we found a big cockroach on the wall when we were having breakfast. Thinking it might have slept with us for the whole night...... well, it wasn't that bad.... Hotel rate is not low, maybe it's due to the delicious food. It would be better value for money if it has open-air hot spring bath in the room.

One of the staff is very rude”

I got very angry after coming to the hotel. The staff is very impolite to us. We asked a question about our booking like the following: Why there is no indoor hot spring in the hotel? And Shin Satou was just leading us the the bath room and told us there is hot tab water in the bath room. His tone is very uncomfortable and disgusting. We have spent around hkd $4000 to book this hotel and we expect to have a indoor hot spring inside our room. The staff Shin Satou was so impolite that totally ruin our vacation. Shin Satou was also the driver who took us from JR station to the hotel. He waited at the JR station for just around 2 minutes. And he told us why we are not waiting at the station. I am very disappointed about this hotel’s customer service. Other staff in the hotel are polite except Shin Satou. The dinner is excellent but one of the driver/staff is very rude.

Excellent first-time ryokan stay”

This was my first time staying at a ryokan and I had a great time! The ryokan offers a shuttle service to pick up/drop off from Yufuin Station. I just had to call the ryokan and a driver came to pick me up within 10 minutes. The ryokan itself is beautiful and spacious and there are four different onsens (2 for men and 2 for women) that are shared amongst three ryokans. The onsens are open from 3pm-12am. Then from around 5am-10am, the male onsens are open for just women and vice versa. I went to the onsens around 4pm, 10pm, and 6:30am and came across just one group of people each time. The food was delicious and used a lot of local ingredients. The staff were extremely kind! The ryokan is super close to Kinrin Lake and the floral village, so it was in a very prime location. Thanks for an unforgettable first ryokan experience!
