Read more 家族共々大満足の宿泊でした。 スタッフの対応、気遣い、声がけ等が非常に素晴らしいです。常に我々お客目線で。 食事は夕食が味、盛り付け、出てくるタイミングなども大満足です。夕食の一部がブュッフェというのが、子供もづれの我々には重宝しました。 朝食はブュッフェで、特に問題ありませんでしたが、2日目もほぼ同じメニューだったので、もう少し変化があるとなお良かったかなと思います。 大浴場は空いていたこともありますが、幼児と入っても使いやすく、露天のバスタブタイプは子供とゆっくり入浴でき、ほんと良かったです。 設備は一部古いものもありますが、本当に上手くリノベされていて、センスの良いやり方が至る所にあり良かったです。 是非またリピートしたいと思っております。

It was a very satisfying stay with my family. The staff's response, caring, and shouting are very wonderful. Always from the customer's point of view. As for the meal, the taste of the dinner, the serving, the timing of coming out, etc. are also very satisfied. A part of the dinner was a buffet, which was handy for us with children. Breakfast was buffet and there was no problem in particular, but I think that it was better if there was a little more change because the menu was almost the same on the second day. The public bath was sometimes empty, but it was easy to use even with infants, and the open-air bathtub type was very good for taking a bath with children slowly. Some of the facilities are old, but they were really well renovated, and there was a good sense everywhere. I would like to repeat again.

All the staff were kind and good. The rooms were clean and the hot water from the 100% hot springs was very gentle on the skin and I was able to enter all the time.

The staff at the time of the meal was great and we had a great time. It was a really nice person. The meal was very delicious and satisfying. The bath is a semi-open-air bath, and the windows are closed at night (it was a measure against the cold). In the morning, half the windows were opened and we enjoyed bathing in a very good atmosphere.
