My wife and I recently spent two nights here and loved it! The ryokan is situated on one of the main streets in town and within a five minute walk of three of the seven public bath houses in town including our favorite...Goshono-yu.
We do not speak Japanese and most of the staff does not speak English but one of the owners does speak excellent English and she was always available to answer our questions either in person or over the phone if she was not around.
Our room was spacious including a small sitting area overlooking the street. There was a toilet en suite and the shared bath+onsen was more than adequate. The room also included a TV but no English channels. Even though it was December the heat worked great in the room.
The best part of the our stay was the elaborate meals we were provided in our rooms. Dinner the first night was a traditional Japanese spread that consisted of multiple courses/plates and the second night was a crab feast cooked at our table since crab was in season at the time. Breakfast both mornings was not quite as extravagant but equally as delicious and filling.
There is a free shuttle that leaves from the train station that will take you to your ryokan regardless of where you are staying and upon departure the staff at Tsutaya gave us a ride to the train station free of charge.
Overall a great experience and would recommend this place 100%.
