My family and I travelled to this hotel in September. We booked two rooms - Type A, both of which had an open air onsen. I'd certainly recommend these rooms as they are tastefully furnished and have lovely views of the greenery. Rooms come supplied with more than adequate amenities, including coffee capsules for your morning cuppa. I always judge a hotel on the quality of sleep - suffice to say 10/10. Mr Kameyama, hotel manager, provided wonderful hospitality and as did all other staff. This is another aspect which a guest will remember, the warm hospitality of the people who make the hotel a success. The food was another outstanding experience. Both breakfast and dinner were always rather extravagant and the menu changed daily which was most welcome as we stayed 3 nights. This is certainly a highlight and something to look forward to when you come to this hotel. The main onsen is also a highlight. As the men's and women's are rotated everyday, you'll be able to experience both as they are slightly different. For a peaceful start to the morning, I recommend getting there at 6am - definitely a way to help you start the day in the peaceful surrounds with the serenity of an open-air bath. The surrounding area is well-worth exploring as there are many scenic spots where you can go hiking, enjoy a picnic, go swimming in a local stream and hit some souvenir shops. Looking forward to our next visit!…
My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and had the half board. The service Everyone was fantastic in making sure we were well taken care of. The accommodation We booked the hutte and was lovely. Considering it’s in the mountain and you must be prepared for some rustic feel and bugs. We were very comfortable though. Spiders are common here and we managed to keep the scary ones out of the room. The meal How can I say this without being rude? The kitchen try’s. Probably because we are accustomed to good Kaseki, we expected higher standards. The experience reminded me of what my Grandfather once said to me - having survived a war, no food should be wasted. If a fruit is rotten, you cut off those parts and eat the good parts. That’s how I felt on the quality of the produce. There was no freshness. The chopped sashimi wrapped in raw courgette has a bad combination to slimy and crunch. A small side dish with sliced shell fish tasted like fishy toenails which I instantly spit out. I think you get the idea at this point.…
This place is really a nice and tranquil choice where you can relax with the surroundings, the neighborhood and nature - be it a walk around the hotel ground or to view the starry night sky on the top of the main building.The staff is extremely genuine and friendly. And they welcome dogs too!
I booked this hotel because of the public onsen in room. As you can see the onsen was very nice as showed in the photos. Service was excellent and all staff were very friendly and helpful. Food were tasty.
We drove from Mt Tsuguri to the ryokan. It took 2 hours and there were plenty of twists and turns on the narrow road down from Mt Tsuguri (and not many spots to rest or sightsee along the way). If you don't drive the ryokan provides free shuttle from Kotohira station at certain timings (need to make prior arrangements). Location wise, the ryokan is in a very quiet area nestled in forested foothills and there are no grocery stores or urban establishments within walking distance, it has the feel of a idyllic resort in the mountains/countryside, perfect for relaxation. The ryokan is newly renovated, and it shows in the main building complex, the facilities and rooms. The aesthetics and design of the property and the rooms are undoubtedly modern but with Japanese sensibilities. We stayed in the twin room with western beds (non futon) in the main building complex . The room was gorgeous and a massive floor to ceiling window looked out to a lovely view of the forest. The WC and the showers/sink are in separate rooms and are thoughtfully concealed through the use of sliding doors. The room was extremely well appointed with quality appliances and fittings, including a nespresso machine and a good amount of USB ports . You can tell that they put a lot of attention to details and the design. The bed and linen were extremely plush and comfortable and we had a great night's rest. We spent some time walking around the complex and enjoying the facilities,, including: (i) the lobby lounge area with a traditional hearth where you can enjoy roasted marshmallows and complimentary hot cofee/tea; (ii) the outdoor pavilion with the footbaths; (iii) the onsen/rotenburo public area, which were segregated by gender. These were very large, new and well designed. There was virtually no one using these when we were there; and (iv) the star gazing platform. There is a dog run. The hotel also rents out hiking poles and shoes etc as there are a number of walking trails which go up to the mountains around the property. Service was excellent and could not be faulted. Email communication with the staff prior to check-in. We were greeted with a warm welcome at the car park and brought to the reception , where we were served with a welcome drink and towel. After check-in the staff showed us to our rooms and also brought us around the facilities. The staff at the dining areas were also attentive and courteous. In particular, our server at the restaurant could speak and explain to us the dishes in good English, which we appreciated. Meals are definitely one of the highlights of the stay. I love the 7 course kaiseki which showcases ingredients from not just Kagawa prefecture but also the rest of Shikoku. Quality of cooking was excellent and flavors were well balanced. The standouts for us were the Katsuo Bonito or lightly seared skipjack tuna, the slow grilled beef (which you grill yourself) and the chicken and vegetables hotpot. There was also a western style dessert served at the end, which was a pleasant surprise. If I was to nitpick, the portions are not as large as you would expect from a kaiseki dinner in a traditional ryokan (from which you invariably end up filling stuffed at the end) and are closer to portions in a multi course tasting menu at a modern restaurant serving western/continental cuisine. The multi-course Japanese breakfast was also delicious and very satisfying. We paid a very reasonable price by booking ahead at the ryokan's own website. Considering the value and the quality of the ryokan and its meals/facilities, this was easily the best accommodation we stayed at in our entire Shikoku trip.…
