Gojyuan is a small ryokan with only two guest rooms so we are able to provide the hospitality and service that is customary in Japan.
Each room is 8 tatami mat in size with private bathroom facilities and traditional decor - tokonoma ( alcove ), oshiire ( futon cupboard ) with shoji screens opening on to a verandah overlooking a Japanese style garden.
The rooms also have TV, blue-ray, reverse cycle air conditioning, free WiFi, bar fridge and tea making facilities but all modern technology is tastefully hidden. There is complementary beer, wine and juice in the guest room fridge. The bedding is futon style and laid out in the evening. Our bathrooms include all toiletries and towels - toothbrush, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser, comb, hair dryer and sewing kit.
A koi pond is featured outside the main lobby area and continues beside the covered walkway between the guest rooms. This provides a quiet space where you can listen to the sounds of running water and our local birds. The perfect place to relax after a busy day.
Check in and Check out Times
Check in time is 3pm and check out time is 10am. Our apologies but we are unable to offer early check in or late check out.
