After spying my original booking, which was dull and uninspiring, i traipsed around town checking other hotels. I chose this Ryokan. The staff are cheery and speak ok English (by which i mean the female owner and her daughter). The dinner is served in one's room, which is very relaxing after spending time in the onsen at the ryokan. The price also includes breakfast (as well as the dinner) and there is a choice of Japanese or western breakfast.
The reviewer of 2006 who stated that this ryokan was an "expensive cheat for foreigners" must have been staying at a different place as far as i was concerned. I travel a lot (on business and pleasure) and am (i am embarrassed to say) not always easy to please, but this place was certainly clean and not worn around the edges. It was was decorated with pleasant individual taste.
The ryokan is very close / next to the old town and, although it is on the high street, is quiet and i could not hear the road from my room (and i am a light sleeper).
All in all, a pretty good place to rest one's head in Takayama.
