The place needs to go under a full maintenance throughout the whole facility. There is literarily pieces of the wooden wall falling apart at the spa. Very disappointed to learn on check in that the restaurant wouldn't accept us because we needed reservation. Needed some cleaning.

Wonderful Japanese Experience
Very nice onsen and excellent dinner and breakfast. Also enjoyed the foot bath in the lobby. Great location to reach the ropeway and Kamikochi. This hotel could be a little difficult for Westerners, as very little English is spoken among the staff and the futons are very thin.

Was worried about accessibility initially but the Nohi bus service dropped us off at bus stop H57, right in front of the Hotel. The hotel also provides return shuttle bus service to Shin Hotaka Ropeway. Otherwise, very comfortable stay with sumptuous Japanese dinner and breakfast prior to my departure.

Room is alright, just no air conditioner. In night time the weather is cool in July, so just a fan also enough.

The unique outdoor onsen by the riverside which you have background music of the river. The foot spa and fireplace at hotel corner were good places to enjoy peace. Kaiseki breakfast and dinner was superb.

Restful place with a wonderful dinner
This hotel is old fashioned (not a bad thing) in furnishings and manner of service. It is in a beautiful location with the best outdoor onsen, mostly empty so you can enjoy the views of the snow-clad mountains in the distance. Recommended to book the half board option as the kaiseki meal in the evening was wonderful as was the traditional breakfast. All the staff, except for one (a small man with salt and pepper hair at the reception desk) were unfailingly polite, helpful and kind. One gentleman went out of his way to organise a lift to the Shinhotaka Ropeway. There are many walks in the area; ask at the Shinhotaka Onsen Information Centre (down the hill from the Ropeway). They can provide you with a mud map of walks in the area. The stay here was a delight and wished I had opted for two instead of one night. Very relaxing and reinvigorating after the hustle of Kyoto. The Nohi bus ride to the area was comfortable and most convenient as the bus stop (Yamano) was directly opposite the hotel.

Spectacular, but better with friends/family
I booked this hotel simply because it was close-ish to Shinhotaka Ropeway. It was a bit of a hike from Tokyo, stopping at Hirayu Onsen and changing to another bus, but the hotel itself was spectacular. Unfortunately, I was on my own so couldn’t really enjoy it like it was designed, but that was obviously not the hotel’s fault. The rooms were big, Onsen magnificent and the dinner amazing. There’s nothing in the local area so book the dinner or you will go hungry. They also drove me up to the Ropeway, which was a big help. It was about a 10 minute drive. The bus to / from Takayama drops off and leaves right in front of the hotel.
