    部屋の露天風呂と大浴室と泉質が違って両方楽しめて良かったです。お料理も夕食、朝食共に大変美味しく丁寧に説明してくれました。ホテル到着して直ぐにスリッパに履き替えて行くシステムだったからか、靴の泥汚れを綺麗にしてくれていて、お礼を言い忘れたのですがとても嬉しかったです。ありがとうございました。またぜひ訪れたいです。

    2家族で宿泊しました。部屋は特別室より新しくオートロック、露天風呂には屋根があり雨でしたが濡れないようになっていました。8ヶ月の子供がいたため既にオムツ用のゴミ箱を設置していただけていました。 清潔で標準的なアメニティでした。 ご飯時はバウンサーがあり、離乳食を温めてもらえたりお皿スプーンフォークを準備してくださってました。ご飯もどれもおいしく、栃木ならではの湯葉がたくさんで嬉しかったです。メインの牛肉も美味しかったです。オプションでケーキをつけていただきましたが4号で4100円ほど食べるタイミングも要望で朝にしてくだり助かりました。夜はお腹いっぱいでした。ちなみにお夜食にお稲荷が部屋にありました。 チェックインや食事の際、外国人の方が担当してくれたしたが日本語も上手でスムーズでした。 大浴場に子供用のベビーバス、チェアがありよかったです。 お部屋、食事、お風呂ともに満足でした。
