As mentioned by many this hotel offers a wonderful array of baths and views from the onsen..if you are into hot springs. The hotel allows guests to wear the yukatas and slippers provided on the 6th floor..but if you suddenly realise that you want something from the shop on the 1st floor then you have to go back to your room and change clothes before going down to get it!!
The hotel rooms in the park wing are large..but our room had a lingering smell of smoke!
The hotel seems to be unsure whether it is a hot spring hotel or not.As a result there are no stands provided in the rooms to dry out your towels before going to take a bath the next time.Also the spa facilities are available to outside guests from 12.00 - 21.00 every day so if you're looking to try the facilities out when it's not so busy then wait until after 21.00 . Between 08.30 and 10.00 in the morning also seems to be a quieter time.
The hotel shuttle runs from Takayama station to the hotel at certain fixed times throughout the day.It's possible to send your baggage on ahead of you from Cafe Scenery..but be aware that the shuttle bus is quite small and fills up very quickly so you might end up standing.
Food: The breakfast selection offered was good on the 2nd floor..but we ate dinner at the place situated in the spa block on the 6th floor and the portions there were small and rather uninspiring.
All in all a good hotel,with a great spa..but other than for breakfast I would advise people to go into the town to get something to eat if you're looking to eat at a reasonable price.
