露天風呂から望む星空は一見の価値ありです。湯船に寝っ転がることができるので心ゆくまで満喫できます。 また朝食のバイキングも種類が豊富で美味しかったです。

露天風呂は眺めは最高だが、本館から離れていて雨だと行くのが億劫になるかも。高原なので結構寒かった。 料理は美味しかったが、隣の会場での団体客の宴会と重なって落ち着けなかった。 値段はリーズナブルだと思う。

居心地の良いホテルでした。 従業員の方々の対応もしっかりしていますし 連絡、周知事項等の連携が出来ていて気持ちの良い時間を過ごせました。 お食事も美味しく、量も多いぐらいで十分に満足できました。 お酒も地酒が楽しめます。 大浴場は脱衣所のスペースを鑑みると、お風呂場が少々狭く感じました。 露天風呂は洗い場の数が少なめかと、ですが寝湯もありますし、周りに眺望を邪魔されるものがないので、晴れた日の夜は非常に綺麗な星空が容易に想像できます。 私が訪れた時は残念ながら曇っていたのですが、館内でプロジェクターを用いた星空の説明をして頂きました。晴れていた場合は外に出て星空を見ながらの説明となるようです。 次回は晴れを願ってまた訪れたいと思います。
