    完全的、全方面的超出预期的满意。由衷敬佩这家具有1300余年历史的旅馆一直传承下的底蕴。 无论是入住、温泉、早晚餐、房间布局、睡眠、休闲、景色、服务,全部都无可挑剔。堪为典范。 榻榻米的脚感舒服、非常怀念。 特别推荐卖点的商品,平田牧场的巧克力冰淇淋相当出彩,纪念商品也是非常优秀。 退房时,前台的女将还为我们介绍大厅的历史,门口前田利常公手植的树,我想这都是代表着旅馆引以为豪的老铺氛围感。 感谢到加贺温泉来接送我们的中川先生、寺田先生,接待我们的西出小姐,前台的李先生,餐厅的林先...

    石川最古の旅館とのことで利用。行ってみると世界最古!?古さは感じるものの、それも含めて素晴らしいお宿でした。 店員さんは外国の方も多かったのですが、日本語も上手で一生懸命されていたため逆に好印象でした。
