Lovely hotel with a stunning view

Dinner, Room, Staff
We stayed at Yufunogo Saigakukan on our first night in Yufuin. The hotel dining area has a lovely view. The staff were friendly and helpful. The price is very reasonable since it includes dinner and breakfast. Dinner is a nice kaiseki meal. We came with our friends and their family in a total of 12 people including kids - so they set a big table for us in a private dining area. The room we stayed was the Garden view room. It comes with a toilet room and a wash basin in the dressing area, but without the bathroom. We need to go to the onsen for bath. There is a public and 2 private onsen where you can use with your family or friends. It is on a first come first serve basis. It's pretty nice with outdoor onsen. There is a massage chair you can use in the public area as well.

Communication Barrier

Scenery, Bicycle & Private Onsen
It was a pretty standard and traditional onsen ryokan. Staffs were nice and helpful, however, the room without a shower has made our stay very uncomfortable. We had a miscommunication with the hotel staff over a Facebook enquiry regarding "TOILET". Hotel mentioned there is a toilet in every room, however, the definition of "toilet" is just a "W.C", the room doesn't come with a "SHOWER". We had to walk all the way to the onsen area to take shower. It's not convenient at all. We weren't told about the housekeeping schedule, our friends were "rushed" by the housekeepers simply because they need to clean the room. We understood their responsibility, however, we think the communication method can be improved.

Not as good as expected

Clean, cozy and nice view
Overall, the place is good as it is clean and cosy. But the scale is a bit small and not as good as expected in terms of its price and services. Unlike other place, they don't have a guest list writing on the board and welcome drink to make you feel good. They don't write your name on the menu. I chose the second round at later time for dinner and they did not arrange us a window seat. And they already set everything on a table which made me feel that the food are not fresh and they did not want you to choose other table. And just told me that it was because you come late and you could not choose other table until I strongly requested I want a window seat. But I found other couple come later than us but they could get a window seat. I told them it was my birthday on that day in advance and I could not find anything I have been treated exclusively even a birthday message or arrange a better seat for me though I did not expect too much. The another day we want to have the hot spring the second time before check-out but just found that the pool was closed but we could not find any notice and reminder for the opening hours and just the receptionist mentioned to us once when check-in. And when we still wanted to enter the common room to take some pictures, the maid was so rude. Overall, in terms of the hardware it is not bad but the service is not impressive which I believe ai can find elsewhere better that this ryokan at similar price range as I have tried different ryokan before. But if this is the first time for you, it may still be fine for you as you don't have any experience for comparison. And I believe they can do better in their service to make the guests feel good and there is room for improvement. However the private outdoor hot spring is good but no rubber band, comb or bath hat to provide except those sponsored tester products.

tip top service and best outdoor onsen.

onsen was great with the stream or river views. staff was super attentive. Dinner spread was bountiful.
Room was big and very clean. Great Coffee machine provided in the room. Staff was super attentive to our needs. They can read what you need and be ready for you even before you asked for it. E.g. they knew I need to go outside to my car, and before I reach the hotel door, they placed my shoe right at the doorstep. The outdoor onsen was stunning.

Dinner can be better

Location, service, clean
This is my third time stayed in this hotel. I love its location, the osen and also the food. However, I found the quality of food is not as good as before. We stayed in 3 different hotels in Yufunin this time, Yufunogo is middle priced. However, we all gave the lowest rating to its dinner, particularly the beef, which supposed to be the best in this region.
