Loved the place. Recommend!!
A lovely and quiet place for relaxation. Staffs were very kind and courteous. Note - not a walking distance from Yufuin bus station. I would recommend walking Yunotsubo Street to Seven Eleven convenient store doing some site-seeing, shopping (and grocery shoppings) and take a taxi to the Ryokan. Taxi fare was about 700 yen each way.

The bed and the pillow are the best so far with my hotel experience. The tea diffuser is just so refreshing.
