半露天の大浴場がとても気持ち良く、リラックス効果満点でした。 お食事も朝夕共に満足、美味しくいただきました。 ありがとうございました。

The public bath in the semi-open-air area was very comfortable and was a relaxing effect. Both the morning and evening were satisfying and delicious. Thank you very much.

Read more 一泊でお世話になりました。 アップグレードをしていただいたお部屋に着くと、素敵過ぎてビックリしてしまいました。 もう、お部屋から出たくないくらいでした。 畳の間の先にフローリングにソファがあり、一面遠くに松本平と山と空が広がる大きな窓という、とても、とても寛げる空間。落ち着いたベッドルームと、お部屋に居ながら掛け流しお湯の流れる音が聞こえる半露天のお風呂、帰ってからも居心地の良さが忘れられません。 お部屋のコーヒーは豆とミルが備えてあり、ひきたてのコーヒーを飲むことができました。ミネラルウォーターも、一人で一本ずつ無料のものが付いていました。食器もステキでした。 お菓子も2種類あり、美味しかったので売店で購入して帰りました。 アメニティの、歯ブラシも、使用感がよくホテルや旅館では、今までにない使い心地でした。 大浴場は、宿泊者専用と、外湯として利用できるところごありましたが、両方とも板の間は裸足で歩いてもとても気持ちよく歩けるお掃除の行き届いた気持ちの良いお風呂でした。お湯の温度が熱すぎずぬるすぎず、本当にちょうど良いので、長く入ることができました。宿泊者専用のお風呂は、広ーい半露天の様な感じでお湯に浸かると目の前に空が広がっている様でとても開放感のあるお風呂でした。 フロント近くに女性用の選べる浴衣と帯が置いてあり、お部屋のものとは別に自由に借りられました。お食事も、地元の食材を使ったものが多く美味しく頂けました。飲み物も良心的な価格設定でした。朝食は、特に野菜やお米が美味しく感じました。帰りに入り口付近でお部屋に持ち帰ることができるコーヒーがあり、お部屋でゆっくり飲めました。 接客は丁寧でこちらが望む距離感を保っていただけたと思います。 予定が詰まっていたので滞在時間が短くて残念に思いました。次回はもっとゆっくりと宿を楽しみたいと思いました。フロントから見える中庭のような場所からの景色を見ながらの足湯にも入りたかったですし、日本酒か沢山置いてあるお蕎麦やさんにも行ってみたかったです。 今回は友人との旅行でしたが、友人も大満足で、2人で、また来たいし、家族も連れて来たいね!と話しています。 次は連泊の方が、お宿を楽しめて、良いかもしれません。 帰るときにとっても名残惜しい宿でした! 有難うございました。

Thank you for your help in one night. When I arrived at the upgraded room, it was so wonderful that I was surprised. I just didn't want to leave the room. There is a sofa in the flooring at the end of the tatami mat, and a very relaxing space like Matsumotodaira and large windows with mountains and sky spread far away. I can not forget the goodness of the room from the semi-open-air bath where you can hear the sound of the hot water flowing down while staying in the room and the room, and the cozy home. The coffee in the room was equipped with beans and a mill, and I could drink freshly ground coffee. One bottle of mineral water was also included, one for free. The tableware was nice too. There are also two types of sweets, so it was delicious so I bought it at the store and returned. The toothbrush of the amenity has a feeling of use well, and it was comfortable to use at a hotel or inn like before. The large public baths were available only to the guests and could be used as outdoor baths, but both of them were clean, comfortable baths where you could walk very comfortably even walking barefoot between the boards. The temperature of the hot water was not too hot and too slim, so it was just right, so I was able to go in for a long time. The bath for exclusive use of the hotel was a bath with a feeling of openness so that the sky was spreading in front of the eyes when it was immersed in hot water with a feeling like a wide semi-open-air. There is a choice of women's yukata and obi close to the front desk, and they were able to borrow freely apart from the ones in the room. The food was also delicious with lots of local ingredients. Drinks were also reasonable price setting. The breakfast was especially delicious with vegetables and rice. On the way back there was a coffee that I could bring back to my room near the entrance and I could drink slowly in my room. I think that the customer service was polite and kept the sense of the distance that we wanted. I was disappointed that my stay was short as my schedule was packed. Next time I wanted to enjoy the lodging more slowly. I wanted to get into the footbath while looking at the view from a place like the courtyard that I can see from the front, I also wanted to go to the soba noodles with lots of sake and so on. This time I traveled with my friends, but my friends are very happy, and I want to come back with two people and bring my family too! Talking with The next night may enjoy the lodging, and it may be good. It was a very memorable hotel when I returned home! Thank you.
