Perfect hotel, but a bit over priced

All paremeters of the hotel are perfect. The only negativ aspect is a price for the dining.

Excellent hotel with excellent service. Hot springs area was amazing and much bigger than expected. We visited here in low season (May) and there were zero crowds in the hotel nor hot springs. If you go to this hotel, make sure you enjoy the hot springs at night time as well.
