Read more お料理も美味しく、お風呂 特に家族みんなで入れる大きな露天風呂はとても良かったです。 部屋にお夜食が用意されていたり、気軽にコーヒーや紅茶が部屋に持ち込めるなど細やかなサービスに感激しました。 少し残念だったのは、お部屋の担当もお食事処の担当もお一人で何組も受持っているらしく慌ただしく感じたことです。 今の時代のサービス業、こちらの旅館も人手不足なのでしょうか?以前はもう少しゆったりしていた気がします。

The food was delicious and the bath The big open-air bath, especially for the whole family, was very good. I was impressed with the detailed service such as having a midnight snack in the room and having coffee and tea in the room easily. What was a bit disappointing was that I felt busy as if I was in charge of the room and the restaurant. Is the service industry of this era, this inn lacking manpower? I felt a little more relaxed before.

この度は大変お世話になりありがとうございました。家内も大変喜んでおりました。 夜もやはり都会では味わえない空気、体感温度、帰宅するのが残念でなりませんでした。 また機会があれば是非お世話になりたいと思います。 有難う御座いました。

Thank you for taking care of me this time. My wife was very happy. Even at night, I couldn't be sorry that I couldn't taste the air in the city, the temperature, and the return home. I would like to take care if there is another opportunity. Thank you very much.
