    2回目の宿泊でした。内風呂があるほか宿泊した部屋には露天もあり他人に気兼ねすることなくゆっくりできました。深山山荘専用の大浴場のほか山みず木の方の露天も利用できるので滞在中いろいろな湯舟を体験でき満足です。 記念日ということでサプライズにもきめ細やかにご協力いただけとても良い思い出になりました。来年もまたこちらにお邪魔できればと思います。

    The whole experience in this onsen hotel is PERFECT! We were greeted by friendly staff when our car just entreated the hotel area, and we were served with hot matcha and tasted snacks. Staff has been very friendly and helpful with great hospitality. The onsen resort only got a few rooms, which provided privacy and calmness. You can use the onsen at the other sister hotel as well. Food was really nice. Private onsen was available inside your house as well. After all, we enjoyed ourselves and will definitely come back!

    완벽한 서비스와 아침, 저녁식사. 매우 조용하며, 매우 청결하다. 젋은사람보다 다소 나이든 부부의 완벽한 휴식을 제공한다. 대중교통 이용 불편하지만 깊은 산속에 유황냄새나는 료칸이다.

    黒川温泉探索の宿として利用しました。場所は黒川温泉の中心から車で5分ほど山に入ったところ。 とても静かな環境です。部屋は全てかけ流し温泉付きの庭もあるコテージ。寝室とリビングも十分な広さでとても清潔感あります。熊本のお殿様で有名な元首相も来られるとか。 食事も良いし、別棟の温泉も内湯はヒノキ、露天は岩風呂、温度も適度な熱さで快適でした。 その割には値段も手ごろで必ずリピートしたい宿となりました。

    everything was too good to be true. staff were all super nice, helpful and proactively engaged in assisting customers. i just stayed there for one night and unfortunately i damaged my rental car before dinner time XD the manager proactively helped a lot by calling rental car company, insurer as well as police. she intentionally put down her work and helped to call the parties and do the translation on me even in a heavy rainy night!\ she even offered tea while i was waiting for police to come as it took nearly two hours to complete the whole process. the room (type c) and other facilities were absolutely clean and in perfect condition. it totally worth the price! will come again for sure! the meal were fine too if u dont mind to eat horse meat. personally not a fan.
