Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
A comfortable night stay
Upon arrival to the hotel, staff were patiently waiting at the entrance building, greeting guests and go all the way to our car at the car park to help with the bags. The hotel has good English speaking staff. This makes our stay even more pleasant as the staff was able to explain the Japanese meals in details during dinner. The room was comfortable for a night stay. Although the onsen is quite small, it was still comfortable for a good hot bath during a cold winter night.

Mixed feelings
This is a good resort for winter skiers. It has a very good Onsen. In autumn there is little to do. The hotel does not even have a coffee shop. The neighbourhood is deserted with no restaurants close by and only a couple within 5 km. Dinner is Japanese very good with a variety of menus for 3 days running. Would go there again if there was snow.

Hida beef under snow!
Staff was very friendly to check where we were so that we wouldn’t miss our delicious dinner. Hida beef was magnificent & also the rest of the food (served in the format of half buffet). Located in the middle of a mountain in Takayama, so if you prefer the quietness, you should spend somet time here! And we were lucky enough to still see snow falling down
