“Great experience”
Reviewed 21 December 2013 via mobile

Visited this hotel during a family holiday to Japan, specifically to experience the onsen & the food. We weren't disappointed by either. The onsen was a great way to relax & unwind after a long day of travelling or a long night on the tatami mats.

The view from our room over the valley was just spectacular.

Dinner in the restaurant was also a great experience.

Stayed October 2013

We arrived in the rain, we left in the rain which was rather a pity as our room supposedly had superb views across the valley to Mount Sakurajima.
We arrived at the station expecting to take the local bus up to the spa resort, don't take the bus, it takes about 75 minutes if you can actually catch one, take a taxi - 20 to 30 minutes and about Yen 4000. We had reserved the room in which the Crown Prince had previously stayed ( picture already on the site) and it was huge, large living area, tatami room and a separate bedroom. About the only thing it did not have was an outside bath.
The Public baths were fine although as observed by previous visitors, make sure you enter the right one as they changed over night. A good selection of Baths.
Dinner is in the main dining room and served Kaiseki style. More than enough to eat. Breakfast was also served in the same room (Viking style) and was extensive.
Only possible downside is that the lobby is a little bare but apart from this a great stay. Pity about the weather but you can't have everything.

We came here for the famous onsen and we were happy. Room was standard and nothing fancy. Food was very decent and served in the dining area. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast which from what I can tell had japanese, western and chinese style choices.

We experienced a bit of a cultural shock when I entered the "mix" onsen and all I could see were naked men and my boyfriend accidently walked into the female side but it was mostly our fault. I then found out the big onsen is female only between 7pm and 10pm. When the big onsen wasnt available to female there were many other smaller onsens you could enjoy and they were never that crowded. Overall a very nice onsen complex with a HUGE onsen in the middle (there is even a rest area on the side). You can probably spend an hour there trying different onsens.
