Loved the experience it offered in Shizuka. Very authentic japanese ryokan decor and experience. Relaxing and calm. Definitely recommend their authentic Japanese food and drinks. Especially the Yuzu sake - I did not have better Yuzu sake in Melbourne.

My wife and i had planned to go to Japan for her birthday but Covid put a stop to that unfortunately so i tried to find an authentic Japanese experience closer to home instead. And find it i did, i cannot rate Shizuka Ryokan highly enough! The most authentic Japanese experience you can have without really being in Japan. Well done! You must try the banquet!

I recently had two wonderful relaxing days at the Shizuka Ryokan Retreat. I loved the Japanese ambiance especially the traditional breakfasts. My favourite part was the dinner I had on one of the nights it was truly delicious and I would go back there again just for that. Later in the week I went back for a wonderful massage. Thank you Shizuka for a great experience.

Perfect couples weekend away, amazing authentic Japanese meals and massages. Definitely worth staying for two nights to relax and unwind. Easy walk into Hepburn Springs and really friendly and helpful staff.

I can’t wait to stay again! The most relaxing and comfortable environment I’ve been in and an authentic Ryokan experience. Thank you to Catherine and all the staff for a wonderful stay and for the last minute request that we’re accomodated. The room and facilities were clean and accessible, surrounded by the natural beauty of Hepburn. Every morning I looked forward to a delicious and locally sourced traditional Japanese breakfast and dinner was sumptuous too. So happy with my stay, I will definitely be back!
