The other day, I was indebted as a hotel for traveling alone. We stayed after a long drive from Shiga to Matsuyama, so it was nice to be able to relax at the inn. I was healed by the smile of the person in charge of the room. From the early morning, we jogged through the city of Matsuyama to Matsuyama Castle and had the best luxury of healing the tired legs at Dogo Onsen.

At Yamatoya Villa, which I visited for the first time in a long time, I received warm hospitality while my nostalgic memory revived. The meal was delicious that would delight even early autumn. It was also a time to feel the persistence of a historic inn without claiming too much. The only disappointment was that there was a white plastic bag left in the open-air bath that seems to have been forgotten. I think it was never before. Still, I would like to revisit if there is another opportunity.

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.
