Verdict:
3/5 of us will return.

Overall the stay here was pleasant. Comparatively to the Miyajima stay, the hot tub did not have as nice a view. There was only 1 kind of indoor tub.
Food wise, I would say they did take the effort, but probably, was slightly average compared to what we have had but it is slightly above average.
However, the location of the place made up for it ..  they are very nicely situated within town .. so it is quite easy to travel around and find transport.
This would be our 3rd ryokan experience and  .. if this is going to be your first, then i think you would probably have a good time enjoying all the facilities 🙂

Bye Kyoto for now!
