I wanted to treat my parents to something special and the hotel certainly lived up to that. From the moment you arrive the service you receive is amazing; attentive and friendly. There are two main areas of onsen baths; one on the lower ground floor which overlook the lake directly and one on the top floor. I prefered the lower floor one. These change daily so that men and women can experience both by visiting in the evening and then again in the morning. My visit was June 21st and although there were a lot of people in the hotel, it never felt over crowded. A tip is to eat later and visit the onsens when the Japanese guests (who tend to eat early) are getting ready for dinner. By the time we got out of the baths, we were pretty well the only ones in there!
We had an Ainu style room which was well equipped including a coffee maker. In the corridor nearby, there was also a footspa.
The dinner was very nice; kaiseki ryori in the restaurant with course after course of beautiful food including crab, fish, sushi, sashimi and choice of meat.
I was expecting the breakfast buffet to be very busy, but was pleasantly surprised. There were Japanese and Western breakfast sections with plenty of choice.
All in all a very enjoyable experience.
