Recently stayed at this hotel - my feelings are a bit mixed

Pros:
- very polite and friendly staff, both at check-in, shuttle bus service, and restaurant
- nice beautiful hotel grounds with interesting little touches - such as the record room for oldies, nice on site farm that you can walk around, nice tea and coffee available in the lounge area
- dinner was excellent
- shuttle bus service available to and from Himeji station, otherwise you need to take a local bus for more than 30 mins

Cons:
- This ryokan is actually a sister hotel of the adjacent main hotel, almost like a hotel within a hotel that is a nicer and more upscale (hence lot more expensive). However, you still need to share some facilities with the main hotel that is a lot older and geared to the mass public. For example to use the big bath onsen you need to use the onsen facilities at the main building in which is quite old and crowded, also amenities in the main onsen big bath is lacking (no towels, shared hair brush etc)
- individual onsen rooms available at the smaller ryokan for rent, however there is no clean-up in between use
- while this ryokan is newer than the main hotel, there are still signs of aging in various spots (e.g. the washing basin has a lot of moldly stain that is quite unpleasant)

I don't know if I would recommend it. Some of the aspects I really like, some are quite unpleasant. I personally would not return but overall it was not a bad experience
