My wife and I stayed in the Japanese style room (211) and opted to have breakfast at the Pension. The property is on the outskirts of the Kusatsu Onsen village. Even though that is just a 10-minute walk from Yubatake, there is a stretch of steep incline so walking there from the bus terminal with considerable luggage will probably border on an aerobic workout.

The service was polite yet a bit distant as they didn't make much smalltalk and didn't proactively ask us whether we needed anything. While our idea of the perfect host is someone more friendly and chatty, we had no complaints at all about the owners at Pension Ramble.

The room was 8 tatamis in size, which was plenty for two people. The table and chairs that we used while enjoying a late night snack were easily pushed to the side to make way for the futons - which we had to set up ourselves but again no problem at all.

We love our staying at the pension because of the owner's great hospitality/ delicious meals and superb private onsen. I was at sereval pensions around Japan but hard to find one with onsen. Besides they have indoor and outdoor ones which you can have your private moment with your friend and family. The outdoor is so great that hotel might charge you 2000yen or so to use it for just 45 mins. But here is free and open 24 hours.
The pension owner is devoted to make all guest staying as comfy as possible. He helped me book the next day bus to karuizawa. He knows which bus cost less (only 1000 yen compare to the other company). He drove us to the collecting point the next morning and helped communicate with the front desk personel about our arrival and helped comfirm our booking at the same time. BTW, the dinner (9 course) was so so great. Breakfast was good too. We truly enjoyed ourselves for just paying under 8000yen for 1 stay and 2 meals.
