5.0/5 BEST REVIEW

by Mark New Zealand / 05 Nov 2019

Excellent place to stay. Good value, the room was clean and had a nice view of the garden and excellent food was provided for dinner and lunch. The monks were very friendly and although had limited English they had written instructions available to explain the temple. Great location for exploring Koyasan too.
