大和屋別荘 Yamatoya Besso

Yamatoya Besso / Ehime Matsuyama・Dogo 91


Dogo Onsen, beloved by many literary figures and poets throughout the ages.
Tucked away in the lively hot spring town is Yamatoya Besso, with a hideaway-like feel.

All guestrooms are spacious.
A hanging scroll written by a poet with roots in Aichi is displayed along with seasonal flowers.
The cuisine with a menu that changes daily is just another highlight of Yamatoya Besso.

After savoring the delicious dishes made with produce from the mountains and the seas of Setouchi, relax in the hot spring water that appear in various legends and folktales.
Enjoy an extraordinary stay at this long-established ryokan with traditional Japanese architecture.

Read more お料理の質 味 接客の質 施設などは 個人の好み 気持ちなどでプラスの評価になったりすると思います。でも 掃除ができているかどうかは 部屋に入っただけで絶対的に評価ができること。 それが できていないお部屋だったことは 他がよかったとしても 残念感が残ります。座った肘置きに触った後が付くくらい 埃が積もっているのを見た時 お料理にも期待持てなくなったのは事実です。残念なお宿としか思えません。 他にも 色々あるけど それ以前 初歩のことができていないので 評価することはやめておきます。

The quality of the food Taste The quality of customer service The facilities, etc. will be positively evaluated by personal preference. But you can absolutely evaluate whether you can clean it by just entering the room. It was a shame even if it was good that the room was not. It's true that you can't even expect to cook when you see the dust piled up after you touch the sitting elbow rest. I can only think that it is an unfortunate inn. There are many other things but I haven't been able to get started before that, so don't evaluate it.

The dinner was pleasant and delicious because the season was felt. Breakfast was also very good, with many items. However, for the convenience of serving while eating, I would like to see the entrance of the room closed. I can not calm down my conversation. Although it was a room, it was a room with an open-air bath, but I could not enjoy it because the function to warm the water temperature did not work well. I would like to offer an open-air bath after checking the equipment well if sold. It is even more so if you offer a suite. Some of the expensive rooms in a ryokan have rooms of various price ranges, and there are places where you can endure to some extent services. However, this ryokan is a ryokan that is generally conscious of luxury, and there are places to expect. There was a small number of people with respect to the number of rooms, and I received a feeling that one of the various explanations was not attentive. There is still a place to be worried about, but I am using it on the last day of the trip on the anniversary, but I am very disappointed.
