We stayed here for a night on June 24. Everything regarding our stay was excellent. On arrival we had a very courteous lady helping unload our bags from the car. The lobby was very kid friendly with a play area, and lots of room to run around.
The dinner buffet was very good. Beef and Pork Steaks were freshly made, and Japanese dishes with fresh local ingredients as well as Chinese dishes. All very good quality.
The telescope observatory was closed due to it being cloudy but they had a astronomy talk where they also explained that there was a firefly viewing area nearby and gave us directions and a flashlight; quick drive over and my kids enjoyed seeing some fireflies!
They even had a childrens area where someone showed me to, when they saw me showing my son around the buffet. Good service!
Onsen was very clean and big, and the sauna nice and hot.
Breakfast buffet was also very good with local Japanese ingredients, and freshly made french toast. Western dishes, eggs, sausages and croissants, etc. No bacon though :)
On checkout I was initially told I had to pay in cash because of the service I used for my reservation but then they made an exception and took my credit card, which was good for me as there was no ATM on the premises and I would have had to drive to the nearby convenient store. Another sign of good service.
Overall, the stay was outstanding and we would gladly recommend this kid friendly hotel in the Yamanashi area.
