5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Wonderful 2 night stay in a great location with super friendly and lovely helpful staff, in a beautiful location. Despite my late arrival the hotel kept dinner for me and couldn’t have done more to be helpful during my stay. Great location for sunrise, sunset and anytime walks for photo ops at the famous Shinkyo bridge, and close to loads of shrines and temples right in the national park
