Read more お部屋は見事なレイクビューでとっても素敵でした!上層階をお願いしたところ、希望を叶えて下さり感謝です。 特に部屋の露天風呂で入った朝風呂は気持ちが良かったです。 夜ご飯は、いつから準備してあったんだろう…?と思う前菜が置かれていたり、結構早いペースで持って来られたりしたので、もう少し落ち着いて食べられたらよかったなぁと思います。でもその点以外は良く、美味しさはどれも最高でした。 従業員の方々も気さくな方ばかりで、コミュニケーションをとるのが楽しかったです。 お風呂ですが、大浴場のシャワーがマックスまでひねっても少しぬるかったので(男女共に)、なおったらいいな、と思います。温泉のお湯は気持ちが良く、お風呂上がりには体がぽかぽかして幸せでした。 良い旅になりました。ありがとうございました。

The room was very nice with superb lake view! I asked for the upper floor, thank you for your hope. The morning bath that I entered in the open-air bath in the room was particularly pleasant. How long have you been preparing dinner? I think there would be an appetizer, or I could bring it at a very quick pace, so I hope I could have eaten a little more calmly. But other than that point, everything was delicious. The employees were also friendly people and it was fun to communicate. It is a bath, but the shower in the large public bath is a bit too warm even if it is twisted up to Max (for both men and women), so I think I should repair it. The hot spring water was pleasant and I was happy when I took a bath. It was a good trip. Thank you very much.

Read more 西国三十三所巡りを兼ねた結婚記念日の旅に利用させていただきました。 部屋にお祝いのカーネーションを置いてくださり、ありがとうございました。嬉しかったです。 部屋が100室以上もある旅館は、久しぶりに利用させていただきました。 大きな旅館なので部屋からお風呂まで少し距離がありましたが、お風呂も清潔でゆっくりできました。 食事の時に対応してくれた方も素朴な感じで好感が持てゆっくりできました。 8階の部屋で琵琶湖の眺めも良く開放感もあり気分も良かったです。 ただ部屋のお風呂は露天風呂だけで内風呂が無いので、洗い場では寒かったですね。 料理は、「叡智」というコースの料理をお願いしていましたが、期待していたほどではありませんでした。 華やかでしたが、全体が団体のお客さん向けの料理なのかな。と感じました。 お土産に買った「ゆず唐辛子」は、美味しかったです。

I used it for a wedding anniversary trip that also served as a tour of the West Bound 300. Thank you for putting a celebration carnation in the room. I was happy. Ryokan with more than 100 rooms was used for the first time in a long time. It was a big inn so it was a bit far from the room to the bath, but the bath was also clean and easy to do. Even those who responded at the time of meal could feel relaxed and liked with a simple feeling. The view of Lake Biwa was good in the room on the 8th floor and the feeling of opening was good and the mood was also good. Just in the bathroom in the room was an open-air bath and there was no in-the-bath so it was cold in the washroom. Cooking was asking for a dish of the course "wisdom", but it was not as expected as expected. Although it was gorgeous, is it a dish for the whole group of customers? I felt that. "Yuzu chilli" which I bought for souvenirs was delicious.
