8/10 Very good

コロナ禍で帰省できないので猫と旅行するのに利用。自分の手違いでドミトリーを予約したのに気づかず猫は車中泊になってしまったが、もとより車中泊覚悟の準備だったので快適だったらしい。 宿のスタッフは地元の若者たちのようだが、気配りや距離感が良い感じで、心地良い時間が過ごせた。食事も当日に頼んだのに美味しくリーズナブルだった。温泉は柔らかい泉質でサッパリした湯上がり。入浴時間の制限はあるけれど何度も入れるのは満足です。 唯一の不満は2階のトイレが今では珍しい和式だったことですが、1階には洗浄式の洋式トイレがあるのでそっちを使いました。 次は間違いなく個室で予約します。

田舎の知り合いの家に行った感じのアットホームな感じで、ゆっくり家族で過ごせました。 お風呂は、内風呂だけど熱くなくぬるくもなくリラックス出来るお風呂で良かったなぁ。 小さな子供が居ても、気兼ねなく過ごせる空間にリラックス出来て、また来たいと家族にリクエストされました。
