Cathy P. Couples Singapore, April 13, 2015
Comfortable Place to Relax

Friendly Staffs, Close to Nature & Spacious
The stay was wonderful. Staffs there are welcoming and friendly. The room was very spacious and clean. And there is a private onsen tub outside the room, overlooking the nature. Perhaps the setback is the location as it is located quite up on the hill and there is a long slope up before reaching the hotel. Not recommended to walk to the hotel carrying luggages. Environment around the hotel was good as it is situated near to nature, which brings great relaxation and peacefulness. The dinner and breakfast served by the hotel are traditional Japanese meals. If you are someone looking for some traditional experiences, I would recommend Gora Ichinoyu.

Good experience in general

Onsen was ready for us when we reached the room. That was sweet and nice.
There isn't much food options around at night. We didn't book dinner and had to walk around Gora looking for restaurants. The room quality is decent and clean. Our only problem was we didn't like having shower outdoor in the cold.

Value for money

Environment is excellent/ private bath is nice/ room is spacious
Room is spacious and the private bath is so nice. Enjoyed the outdoor hot spring was a very special experience. But the location of hotel is a bit far away from gora station. But it is fine to acess to hotel by taxi and it is not so expensive.

A paradise located in the mountain

Friendly staff, amazing food, comfort rooms
Gora Ichinoyu Hotel is the first hotel we decided to stay on the first day. Although is location is a bit far away but it was all worth it when we have arrived in the hotel. It was lucky enough we rented a car to drive up there as the location is quite remote. The staff are friendly and were able to assist you and the food is simply amazing. I would stay there again for sure. The selling point for this hotel is the private onsen in the room, the mountain view while you are in the onsen could simply relax you. Overall, it was a amazing stay and would recommend people to go there as the price is reasonable and it is worth what you are paying for.

Fantastic Food

The food was great, brilliant room and private onsen bath
A great stay at this brilliant hotel ryokan, I was worried eating in a dining room would spoil the Japanese experience but it was lovely (glad I didn't have to prepare room for dinner and breakfast) the food great and lovely to have the private bath as well as different mineral public bath. The walk from the station is easy - go under the little underpass and go straight on until you have to go up a steep hill on your left (steep for all of 10-15mtrs) then it's the first place on your right, or just ask the helpful information station outside the station.

Reasonable price for private outdoor onsen

Private Outdoor Onsen
This is not an authentic ryokan, it is a ryokan style hotel. I chose this mainly for its private outdoor onsen but the shower could do with a little touch up. It's tucked away from Gora station among other onsen stays. I'd recommend you to take a cab in and but when returning to Gora stn, walk out for the fresh air in the morning. Food is nothing to rave about but definitely a good experience.
