A true gem of an experience
Loved this family-owned and operated Ryokan. The attention to detail and service was impeccable. The meals were an experience onto their own - absolutely delightful and delicious. Wonderful location to hike and visit temples near by. Secluded and serene location in the mountains. A little hard to get to from Kyoto, but worth the effort. Wish we had stayed longer.

15/10 stars!
I cannot recommend this place enough! It was so relaxing, beautiful, and the staff was incredible! They offer traditional and local breakfast and dinner that rivaled Michelin star restaurants! It was our first Ryokan experience but definitely will not be our last now. Such an incredible place!

Stunning is only half if it!
Overall: 12/10! Food: superb, cleanliness: absolutely spotless, hospitality: the best I have ever experienced, views: breathtaking. The accessibility going up the hill can be a bit rough but there are taxis that can take you up and drop you off only a few steps from the doors. We arrived from downtown Kyoto and had no trouble finding where we needed to go. There are shops and temples all around the Ryokan (all within a ten minute walk), stunning trees and flowers along the way. We were not afraid to try out the sleepwear and a traditional Yukata for dinners, which is a big thing considering we are picky about our clothing. We were lucky enough to have a room the had it's own Onsen and garden. We spent a lot of our time drinking tea and eating sweets by the garden, spending quiet and peaceful time with each other and taking care of our bodies with "our vacation from our vacation". I have a food allergy and every meal we shared at this beautiful location was specifically catered towards my needs; I had no fear that there was cross-contamination or something was not translated properly. We felt at home the minute we walked in. We were respected and gracefully shown how everything in the Ryokan worked. This was our favorite part of our whole trip. Beautifull view of not only the country side but of the Japanese culture as well. We would come back to Japan just to stay in this Ryokan again.

Beautiful Setting; Wonderful Food
We loved our stay at the Seryo Ryokan. The setting was perfect and the service fantastic. It had been many years since I was last in Ohara and it brought back memories. The staff went out of their way to address our needs. But the best thing about our stay was the superb dinner and wonderful breakfast. What a treat! We definitely would like to return to Ohara and stay here again.
