The onsen were FANTASTIC! Each day we'd spend time in a new onsen. By our 3rd day we already knew which onsen to go to if we wanted something specific. The best onsen to go if you want to take your time getting ready is in the Cedar Onsen. They have several private booths available with a dresser, mirror, lights and sockets for your hair iron or curler. There's also a nice area with giant windows facing the lake equipped with lounge chairs and a couple of warm stone beds if you wanted to take a nap after your dip in the onsen. The water here is comfortable and only goes up to 41-42ºC. If you want to sit down for a FREE foot and/or back massage with the massage machines, the Panoramic Onsen is the place to go. It's also probably the hottest onsen of the 3 offered in the resort. The outside onsen is the best for people who can't handle high heat. The water is pretty hot, but if you come here during spring, winter or autumn, the combination of the cold air and the hot onsen is PERFECT. I think I was able to stay the longest here. Our room was also impeccable. The staff asks you what time you'll want to eat dinner (between 6pm-7pm) and what time you want them to set up your futon. It was an absolute treat to have the kaiseki meal every night during our stay. The meals were wonderfully balanced with plenty of seasonal vegetables and meat dishes. It was worth every penny. We also ate in the cafe daily because all the desserts were DIVINE. I absolutely recommend getting the Spring Afternoon Tea, or any Afternoon Tea for that matter. It was fun to eat in the cafe while watching the ducks and koi in the lovely pond/garden outside. Most of the staff can speak some English, but if you really don't know any Japanese, it's best to tell them beforehand so they can properly prepare for your stay. Luckily, I could speak some Japanese and had an easy time getting around. Also if you need a bigger yukata, just ask.
Breakfast is eaten in a common area on the 1st floor and is eat-all-you-can. The food was DELICIOUS, but pretty repetitive, unlike the kaiseki dinner which was special and different every night. And it gets pretty hectic. Each station runs smoothly and the staff work hard to make sure that they work quickly but attentively, but there's just too many people sometimes. There's nothing the hotel can do about the people, although, I would suggest a more exciting menu for breakfast even if they have to charge more. I would gladly pay more because I think breakfast buffets in high quality hotels, like Suimeikan, are sometimes the best part of the stay. They serve Western and Japanese food. I highly recommend trying out the Gero Apple Juice which tasted fresh and was a little pulpy, which I liked. The Gero Milk was also wonderful. Also, make sure to get the yogurt, it was so thick but mild, it was like eating yogurt custard.
The onsen is fine, with both indoor and outdoor. And the massage chairs are also nice after a bath. The dinner and breakfast are good as well.
Hope the staff serving meals could speak English. The old ladies are nice and friendly, anyway we are unable to communicate with her but smiles.
Staff was friendly and able to speak english fluently. Breakfast was delicious with many options. Many onsens available to choose so that the onsen was not crowded.
A little bit feel like tourist place rather than authentic ryokan
Very good breakfast
The buffet breakfast was fantastic, the room was spacious, the staff were very attentive. Loved the cheap massage chairs! The three onsen to choose from were delightful.
The hotel catered for basic English, but the food menu in the room was all Japanese.
With a stay at Suimeikan in Gero, you'll be on a river, within a 10-minute walk of Onsen Museum and Onsenji Temple.
