WiFi connection is weakness. It is not available to use often. Hope will improve in near future.

It was a trip of my mother's birthday gift. Everyone was very satisfied with a variety of services that we had prepared before dinner as we prepared gifts at surprise at dinner time. I definitely want to stay again.

Read more 和洋室を利用したが、畳スペースのど真ん中に柱その両側にテーブルイスセットとコタツが置かれていて、せっかくの畳の上に寛げるスペースは全く無い。和洋室にした意味無し。HPの写真にはそのような部屋は載っていなかったのでちょっと騙された気分。何を考えて設計したら窓の真ん前ど真ん中にあんな太い柱が来るのか。結局ずっとベッドの上に居た。部屋の他のスペース(特に洗面室とクローゼット)が無駄に広いので余計に不快。 朝食がビュッフェなのは仕方ないが内容が安っぽくて残念。周囲の席との距離が近くて落ち着かない。 入口で席案内を指示しているスタッフの方(責任者?ちょっと年上の感じの男性)がピリピリしていて朝から不快。同一人物かはわかりませんが、夕食のレストランにもそんな方が居た。客前での指導は空気を読んで言葉遣いを考えて頂きたい。 お風呂と夕食のレストランで応対してくれたスタッフは良かった。

We used the Japanese-style room, but in the middle of the tatami space, the table chair set and kotatsu are placed on both sides of the pillar, there is no space to relax on the tatami mattress at all. It has no meaning to be a Japanese-style room. I felt a little deceived because there were no such rooms in the HP photos. What do you think about and design such a thick pillar in the middle of the window? I stayed on the bed after all. Other spaces in the room (in particular the washroom and the closet) are unnecessarily unnecessary because they are unnecessarily wide. Although it is inevitable that breakfast is buffet, content is cheap and regrettable. I can not rest calmly because the distance to the surrounding seat is near. Staff who instructs the seat guidance at the entrance (man responsible? Men who feel a bit older) are stinging and uncomfortable from the morning. I do not know if he is the same person, but there were those in the dinner restaurant as well. For guidance in front of the customer, please read the air and think about wording. The staff who served me at the bath and dinner restaurant was good.
