Read more 連れ合いと私の中ではとにかく「また行きたい旅館ランキング1位」の湯元館さん。2度目の来訪です。ゴーツーキャンペーン利用ということもあり、今回は奮発してカロイのDXスイートに宿泊。室内の広さ、個室露天風呂テラスのスペースもさすがはDX、申し分なしです。男性の無頓着部分、アメニティグッズの豊富さも連れ合い的には大満足、充分のようです。楽しみにしていた個室露天風呂は、チェックイン時、夕暮れ時、夜中、そして日の出時と4回も楽しみました。とにかく入りたい時に、温め直す必要もなくお風呂にザバ〜んと飛び込めるのは最高です(^-^)お勧めのお風呂時間はやはり夕暮れ時!国道を走る車のテールランプのたなびきを見下ろし、また目を奥にやれば夕映えの琵琶湖の湖面…、日頃の喧騒を忘れて、ただただ至福の時間を味わえます。そして湯元館さん最大のお楽しみはやはり夕食。ありきたりの旅館懐石ではなく、器から目で見て楽しみ、工夫を凝らした数々のお料理、どれもこれも大変美味しい!とりわけ楽しみしていた近江牛も大変味が濃く、連れ合いも私も「今まで食べた牛肉で一番美味しい!」とうなってしまいました。料理提供時間は2時間と最初に提示されましたが、約1時間強でした。これぐらいの提供時間が間延びせずに、ちょうど良いぐらいかなと思いました。朝食は洋食をチョイス。夕食は和食がメインになるので、味変を楽しみたい方は洋食がお勧めかも。私は野菜嫌いなので、サラダはしばしば残してしまうのですが、湯元館オリジナルのコーンドレッシングが大変美味しく、残さずサラダもたいらげてしまいました。フロント横の売店でも売っているので、お土産にも最適かなと。とにかく美味しいドレッシングでした。湯元館さんにあえて苦言を呈するなら…私は喫煙者なのですが、喫煙ルームまでの道のりが遠い。せめてカロイ特別ラウンジあたりに喫煙ルームを設置して欲しいと思いました。不満はそれぐらいかな。とりあえずコストパフォーマンスに優れた、密かな私たちの楽しみである旅館でい続けてください。今回も気持ちの良い旅情気分を味わえました。素敵な接客に感謝いたします。

Yumotokan-san, who is "the number one inn ranking I want to go to again" among my friends and myself. This is my second visit. Due to the use of the go-to campaign, I rushed to stay at Kaloy's DX Suite this time. The size of the room and the space of the private open-air bath terrace are truly DX, perfect. The men's careless part and the abundance of amenity goods seem to be very satisfying and sufficient. I enjoyed the private open-air bath that I was looking forward to four times, at check-in, at dusk, at midnight, and at sunrise. Anyway, when you want to enter, it is best to jump into the bath without having to reheat it (^-^) The recommended bath time is still at dusk! Looking down at the tail lamps of the cars running on the national highway, and looking back at the surface of Lake Biwa in the evening, you can forget about the hustle and bustle and just enjoy a blissful time. And Yumotokan's greatest pleasure is still dinner. It's not an ordinary inn kaiseki, but a lot of dishes that you can enjoy visually from the bowl and devise, all of which are very delicious! The Omi beef that I was especially looking forward to had a very strong taste, and my companion and I both groaned, "The most delicious beef I have ever eaten!" The food serving time was initially offered as 2 hours, but it was just over an hour. I thought that it was just right without delaying the provision time like this. For breakfast, choose Western food. Japanese food is the main course for dinner, so if you want to enjoy the taste change, Western food may be recommended. I hate vegetables, so I often leave salads, but the Yumotokan original corn dressing was very delicious, and I ate the salad without leaving it. It's also sold at the shop next to the front desk, so I think it's a perfect souvenir. Anyway, it was a delicious dressing. If you dare to complain to Yumotokan ... I'm a smoker, but there's a long way to go to the smoking room. At the very least, I wanted a smoking room to be set up around the Kaloy special lounge. That's about the dissatisfaction. For the time being, please continue to stay at the inn, which is our secret pleasure with excellent cost performance. This time too, I was able to enjoy a pleasant feeling of travel. Thank you for your wonderful customer service.

Read more お漬物、しゃぶしゃぶの出汁、お味噌汁、ご飯大変美味しかったです 白楽に泊まりましたが、お部屋も素敵でした。 でも、お部屋の隅々は埃が目立っていました。ロビーを歩いても、忙しそうなスタッフが足早に目の前を横切り、夕飯は、私が離席した間に中学生の娘に何らか説明をしてくださったり、朝ごはんは、席につくタイミングで、お味噌汁まで全て用意してくださって、結果、冷めたお味噌汁を飲むことに。 お部屋の案内の方は、私の手持ちの荷物には触れず、スーツケースを転がしお部屋に。と、些細なことばかりですが、歓迎してくださってるようには、感じませんでした。

Pickles, shabu-shabu soup stock, miso soup, and rice were very delicious. I stayed in Hakuraku, but the rooms were nice. However, dust was noticeable in every corner of the room. Even if I walked in the lobby, the busy staff quickly crossed in front of me, and for dinner, I explained something to my junior high school daughter while I was away, and for breakfast, when I got to my seat So, he prepared all the miso soup, and as a result, I decided to drink cold miso soup. The guide to the room did not touch my luggage, but rolled the suitcase into the room. It's just a trivial matter, but I didn't feel welcomed.
