We spent 3 nights in Kyoto recently and were only able to spend 2 nights at Gion Hatanaka. We spent the first night at a different ryokan that billed itself as "high-end" and so we were able to benchmark the two. Hatanaka also came highly recommended from a friend from Tokyo and it didn't dissapoint. The food was spectacular as was the service. We were a famly of 4 and found the room spacious and very accomodating.
