The visit started with a disappointment, the main reason for selecting this hotel was the rooms with a balcony facing the garden. When we arrived we did get a room with a balcony, however facing the busy road next to the garden. When complaining we got moved one room closer to the garden, with a view of the garden but still could hear and see the road. The room is a combination of western, beds, and Japanese, the tatami sitting area. Quite spacious, good size bathroom and seperate toilet. Breakfast has choice of Japanese or western, both come as a set menu, which were good. One night we opted for the japanes kaiseki diner, an elaborate selection of japanese dishes. Very good quality, which comes at a price. Service is top notch. Location is just around the corner from the onsen, and there is a tram stop close by.

Large elegant hotel-ryokan right next to Dogo Onsen. Funaya has its own baths, as well. Room was traditional, ample size, with a balcony sitting area. As is often the custom, a kimono-clad server was assigned to us for the 2-day stay. She served dinner and breakfast in the bedroom. No matter how many times we've stayed in such ryokans, having that experience is fresh and inspiring. We rate the food top-notch, kaiseki style.

We spent 2 nights in dogo onsen area and stayed in Funaya. Hotel room is Traditional Japanese style, familiar to me and enjoyed the big space. Everyday breakfast time and evening time they will arrange or collect the futon, and had nice sleep in their futon! Breakfast is nice, tried one day Japanese and one day western, good. And the onsen, of course onsen! Lovely onsen and also nice outdoor onsen, with massage chairs in rest area, I do love Japanese onsen. Very close to bus station, worth a stay.

We had decided to splurge on our final day of 3 in Shikoku and chose this hotel due to its high ratings and website. Although the room was quite nice and overall service decent, we were very disappointed in especially the dinner dining experience. The ryokan we stayed the night before in Takamatsu was half the cost and heads and shoulders above in terms of service and personal attention. For the rate a hotel of this reputation charges, expectations for a dining experience are very high on the guests' end. There was no welcome and no staff when we entered the rather mundane dining area. The dining room itself resembled a simple family restaurant. This started us off on the wrong foot because we were made to stand in the entrance like idiots while staff hurried about. The food itself was subpar for the cost, in particular the main course. I know quality wagyu beef and this was not that. We ultimately were so disappointed we left without finishing the course and went out for food in the village. Breakfast was decent. Nothing to have a parade about, but passable and well done. We did vocalize our disappointment and one of the managers personally apologized and we were given some very nice towels made by the very famous Imabari towel company. A local prized industry. They were very kind and this did make up for the experience to some degree and allowed us to leave on good terms. The final evening meal however was disappointing and it more or less put a damper on the whole experience of Matsuyama and the Dogo onsen area. On the plus side, our room was quite nice with very good quality beds, bedding, towels, and it included an in room hinoki wood bathtub with natural hot spring water piped in. Certainly one of the nicer rooms I've stayed it. Over all, we were happy to receive the nice towel gesture and enjoyed the room, however we do not have a desire to return to this hotel nor the Dogo onsen area. I hope our experience was a fluke and not the norm.
