We stayed in one of the deluxe queen rooms and had a terrific time. The room was spotless with a private washroom and hot water. There is a beautiful view of the terraces from the room. The staff at the lodge were really helpful - we were allowed to check in early after arriving on an overnight bus from Manila....

The lodge is located in the center of the town (near market). The price is okey, you can choose between the rooms facing the road or rooms facing the mountains. There's no electrical sockets inside the room, but you can charge your devices in the lobby. The food quite expensive since there is a 10% service charge in every order....

Massively overpriced trips [ we found same for less than a third of the price or even...

Thank you for your kind words. I am glad you liked your stay with us. Most of the lodges that's been around for a while don't have sockets in the rooms to avoid risk of fire as an incident that happened years ago almost caused a fire when a guest left a water pot plugged until the water in it...

Simple rooms, great service, nice common area, attitude and overall experience. Owner was extremely helpful in recommending a solid guide, ferdi/amigo is his name. She also helped with some required medical attention by directing to clinic. They cooked veggies I got from market for a reasonable fee. Tried to look for another place in town to eat, just to mix...

Quaint but comfy place to stay after a long and winding drive. Altho located at the city center, she still provides a calm ambiance with good food and friendly staff complemented by the relaxed support of the hands-on owners. The only spoiler was the view of a presidentiable name painted on a locals home. Otherwise, our room had a great...

We booked by Facebook message and email. The hotel is very centrally located. Our room was basic but clean. The bathroom needs updating but the hot shower worked well. We had a mountain view mainly for road noise reduction than for a view. The room windows had insect screens which obscured the view and were not that clean. There is...
