I was a bit apprehensive with some of the mixed reviews. And tossed up here versus the Hyatt. However was very happy with our stay as a family of four (7 and 10 year old).||Wished we had more time to enjoy after our long day on the Hakone loop. Went counterclockwise, from Hakone Yumoto to Motohakone and ended up at Gora. We made our way there after the Open Air museum on the bus and it was very easy to navigate. Got dropped off the bottom and then 2 mins up the hill. ||The service was commendable - the welcome drink appreciated. Anything you asked for they responded immediately. Accommodation was very comfortable with a river view and an outdoor personal onsen bath which was quite a highlight. ||The food was delicious; we had dinner and breakfast - excellent quality and worth it, as high end. Nice to see dining in Yukatas. ||I did wish the public onsen was traditional but knew coming prior it was shared. The foot bath outside was lovely.||Note on transfers - they can send you to Odawara or Gora on their shuttle as a compliment however it did not fit in our schedule. However - it is so easy to jump on a bus to take you back to Hakone Yumoto or Odawara itself. ||Wished we had stayed a bit longer!

We were warned by prior reviews that this hotel was in a bad location. Upon arrival, we learned that this is because it overlooks a part of the river that’s not particularly pretty and is somewhat industrial. Also, the area seems low income. However, the hotel itself is fantastic. Beautiful inside with a luxurious spa/onsen, a large delicious breakfast (with a good vegetarian menu), an outdoor foot bath, and really great service. Didn’t use the in room spa because the scenery outside isn’t pretty and it’s not big enough for us large Americans. The hotel provides shuttles and there is plenty of public transportation. This is a nice little getaway.
