Very nice hotel with well designed decoration and hospitality. Room is very clean and both dinner and breakfast are tasty.
Great English breakfast, Chris and Judy are extremely nice. The Wellies is a good place for big family, loved the garden. Freddie is such a gentleman ;)
Sound insulation between rooms could be inproved.
It was really nice to meet and talk to Chris, the hotel owner, and Judie. Freddie, the big black dog was also a delight. Amazing afternoon tea and breakfast. Definitely recommend everybody to have a drink at the bar, so relaxing!
I think I can hear the sound from the 1st floor in the morning. (i stayed at 2nd floor)
Thank you the owner Cris, the cute dog Freddie, and friendly staff members! Cris kindly drove us to the station and some must-see sites. It was very helpful! We also enjoyed traditional British breakfast including tasty "saba", which is a fish both British and Japanese people love! We had a really relaxing fun time in cozy lovely Wellies!
The hotel is set in an idyllic mountain location with so much to see. The room was lovely and as a British person felt very authentic. By far it was the best British style food we have ever had in Japan, the full English breakfast with proper home cured bacon was a delight, and the 4 course British meal was honestly better than what you would get in the UK. To top it all off, Chris, Judy and all of the staff (including Freddie the dog) were lovely, interesting, attentive and really go the extra mile to make every guest feel welcome! Cannot wait to come back and stay there again soon :)
I honestly can't think of anything I could fault the hotel on, unless they can find a way to control the weather in which case less rain would be good :P
