Bettei Haruki was widely published on local travel magazines, we were attracted to book here for its' signature photo of an indoor onsen.
Total of 6 guest rooms, 4 of which has private open-air onsen. There was extra 3 private onsen within the premises, Nadeshiko and Kikyou were the nice ones in the attached house. Those onsen were occupied when slippers were placed in the shoes shelf in front of the outdoor corridor. Suzushiro was a much smaller onsen suitable for single person only.
Our room, Seri was satisfactory, little bit dated with old TV and safety deposit box, but it was clean with renovated toilet. It provided free mini-bar with refreshing cold drinks in fridge. Kaiseki dinner was average considering the room rate it charged.
