Its an experience to try out the ryokan. Breakfast & dinner are served in the room and it's a very lavish one. The only disadvantage is there is no bed to rest other than bedtime because the beds are only laid out before bedtime
What I appreciate - clean - close to lake - dinner and breakfast - the people who served us, they really treat the guests well - the private hot bath is so nice Still some downside - before checkin I tried contact CS for several times inquiries via email. They never reply. - I suggest to provide more information on shuttle service (eg how arrange) and meal arrangements upon bookings. But seems this is the responsibility of Agoda, rather than the hotel.
Facilities a bit outdated.”
Central location two mins away from the shopping street and the lake. The onsens are quite small and basic. Rooms are a bit outdated and tired, especially the western style rooms. Dinner is huge but some of the dishes don't look high quality, quite basic. All in all though a great stay.
Traditionally elegant Japanese Ryokan”
Beautiful and elegant Japanese hotel. Great location near to places of interest and yet located in a quiet lane. Traditional refined dinner and breakfast served in private dining room. Great for a relaxing holiday with nice onsen bath
Excellent service from the lady who served us, though farther from train station but provided shuttl”
All staff are very nice, meals very delicious for breakfast and dinner, the lady waited at door and handed over the umbrella at the rainy morning, two minutes walked to the lake though it is very small never see such beautiful scene in the morning as a paradise.
The hot spring was excellent, staff picked me up at the station after I called them at the station. I forgot to include the option for Gaiseki, was not able to add it afterwards, so if you are looking forward to Japanese style dining, don't forget to add it when making reservation
Good place to stay, staff are friendly , polite and nice especially the lady called Sakura who served us dinner and breakfast . Very near to the lake so that I can see the mist in the early morning before sunrise. They can drive you from the train station to the hotel, just notify them beforehand.
The staff are really kind and attentive. It's the best service I've ever had. The hot spring facilities are impressive. I will definitely visit the hotel again in winter for different experiences of the natural views.
A&O from Hong Kong”
Money worth, well spent a wonderful night here with my wife and we both had an experience that we will never forget! The food and services are excellence and location is very convenience! Highly recommend!
delicious food and friendly staff , Thank you EBI”
Staff "EBI" explained each food in detail. And the food was delicious, too. The room was so neat and the water in the hot spring was just right, so it was good to enjoy. I think it is a really good place to travel with family. Thank you for your kind hospitality and EBI.
It was a really wonderful experience.”
He came to pick us up right away even though we arrived at the station earlier than we told before. I think the reason why the hotel asked for the gender is to prepare a dress that fits the gender. So When arrived the room, we could feel that the room was ready for us. It was good from this careful concern. The staff, who were assigned us, combined with humor and kindness, treated us with a smile all the time. All the staff in Yufuin Santoukan were kind. Thank you very much. In the dinner, because I couldn't eat raw food, she changed it to cooked food for me! Even after checkout, he took us back to Yufuin Station. Just there were small drawbacks. It was very embarrassing to see a live mouse in an open-air hot spring in 金鱗の湯 and the bottom of the bath in 妃泉の湯 was slanted enough to fall down when entering, but there was no warning sign. Despite these shortcomings, the memory in Santoukan is full of good memories. Thank you for making and serving us a great experience.
Room is spacious Staffs are very helpful
Very nice room, perfect food
Our best stay in Yufuin!”
A comfortable traditional-Japanese style accomodation with exellent service and wonderful catering! Secluded location makes its quietness. However, it's very near from 湯の坪街道, Yufuin floral Village and 金鱗湖(about 5 mins on foot).
Nice room and was cleaned; Great service; Location not as convenient; still walking distance from the main onsen street but would need to take taxi from/to the station (the hotel can also drive you to the train station) They have onsen but unfortunately I didn't have the chance to try
Perfect stay for onsen resort”
This is the first time I received such an exclusive service in Japan. Food is good and I really like the fact that the meals are served in your room. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Strongly recommended.
The place was clean and tiny, with few hot spring indoor and outdoor. What amazed me most was the dinner and breakfast served in the room. The food were delicious and delicate. It was totally worth it.
A fantastic one!! ”
Excellent! The dinner is delicious, the staff are very nice and helpful, especially Jane who takes very good care of us! We like the private onsen too! Thank you for making our trip a very memorable one :)
lovely traditional japanese styled hotel ”
the hotel is not near the station, but you can ask for pick up. The dinner is beautifully presented, but don't expect a great taste or maybe just not the taste I love. Some hot spring location were broken or not applicable to all customers which is a minus too. A Lawson is in walking distance and that will be the only shop opens after 6pm ....
I had stayed there for one night, which I have greatly regret because I just so much love the beautiful atmoshere and those wonderful indoor and outdoor onsen, I should have stayed two nights next time. Hotel itself is not huge but service is truly magnificient. Cheerful and personal, extremely patient in answering all sorts of questions about the gourmet breakfast and dinner (i am extremely interested about the food they are offering, very fresh very local, it is not cheap in staying here but well worth every penny!) They have two sets of onsens (total 4 of them), clean and quiet, I enjoyed my every second in these hot bath, though they dont have lovely view facing the sea whatsoever like other onsen. Location of hotel is rather far away (30mins slow walking from JR Yufu station) but you can enjoy a lot of shopping and local food along the way, so 30mins is not a problem for me. However you can always ask for the hotel to pick you up or drop off at station, if you have big lugguage and do not enjoy walking. The famous lake is just around the corner, make sure to travel in the morning, it is not a big lake but truly beautiful.
