This was my second time staying here. Even though it was a busy time, being new year season, everyday their flowers were fresh and new, the tidiness was top notch, the meals, the spring water, the courtesy and attentiveness made me feel very comfortable. I will come stay again. Thank you very much. + More

there once, to this resort. Inside the place everywhere is neat and clean, their flowers were fresh and lively and with the slight scent of pleasant incense it set us into a great mood. The onsen was our main attraction, but ... its water was a little hot. They might be elderly but since both of them were happy and liked the hot water, they stayed in so long that I was a bit concerned if they’re okay. It was right next to the hot spring area, but since it was very quiet and calm, I thought I’d like to come here again. + More

It was really good, so I’ll post a comment about the place. Being a busy working mother of two children. My family sent me to a one person overnight onsen trip, my first time in Kusatsu. I was greeted by the pick up service at the station at my expected time of arrival. They did not know if I would be coming by train, but I was still helped by their pick up staff at the station who seemed to be picking up several times over all. And though the resort might not be that far from the station, I feel that this was exceptional customer service. I’m really impressed at how nicely the resort has maintained beautiful parts of the architecture from olden days while modernizing where necessary. I’m not an expert when it comes to onsen, but seeing the snow slowly fall from above while in the open air hot bath it felt like I got to see a nice Kusatsu winter. I had a private dining room, but I could hear the voice from the next door, still, one can enjoy just by themselves too. The meals were wonderful. It was elegant japanese cuisine but sprinkled here and there with somewhat adventurous seasonings. It wasn’t like typical onsen resort food, rather even after eating all the food I felt comfortable that I could finish it pleasantly. The single’s room has a beautiful japanese style decorative modern bed. Now, since I didn’t get to roll around on a traditional japanese tatami floor-bed, I’ll give it four stars. Next time I'd love to come here with my family. + More

I got to Kusatsu earlier than planned. So, I headed to the resort, thinking I’d leave my car there and go for a little sightseeing, there I was told that the room has been prepared so I was welcome to use it as soon as I pleased, which I really appreciated. The room was lovely and spacious enough for the two of us that we could relax like at home. However, while watching TV, the TV went off by itself about once every hour with a loud “snap” sound. It was late night, so I didn’t contact the staff, but I wonder what it was… The baths were of exceptional quality and atmosphere. We could relax nicely with the private reserved bath attached to the room. The only thing that I found disappointing was that the food was set a little late, which ended up delaying our eating time. There’s nothing on the menu that leaves much of an impression on you either. It seemed like it was just pretty vessels, I think they could be more creative. That said, I’d like to come here again. + More

I asked the staff to provide special attention to my mother who has weak legs, my mother appreciated the courtesy a lot. The meals were of the perfect volume, and we deliciously enjoyed everything till the last bite. As expected, Shirohata hot spring water has the highest spring quality, I ended up going five times. I would like to come visit again, thank you very much. + More
