Great location near the water, the airconditoning needs to be stronger in the lobby area. The rooms are a good size and are clean. Good breakfast and egg station. I would probably stay here again nex trip.

This hotel used to be one of nicest hotels in Surigao. Used to be. I stayed here for two nights and for the duration of my stay I saw two huge rats along the corridors. Gross. Bathrooms are so small and dirty. Such a terrible experience. Wifi isn't even working properly.

We came over for work, but I'm pleasantly surprised to discover that the place can be a nice place to relax and rest as well. The room is spacious. The wifi is good. There's a convenience store just across the street, at the ground level of Hotel Tavern Annex. On my side of the room (Room 205), I can watch... More

I find the hotel as perfect base if you want to see thebest sights in surigao. U can take a boat going straight to Siargao.. Dock is right in front of the hotel. Staff was very friendly..although the breakfast buffet can be better. Will definitely come back when we go to enchanted river, tinuy an falls and dinagat islands. There... More

Was in town for a cousin's wedding. Spent 3 nights at the hotel. Excellent service! Clean rooms although it would have been so much better if they had a hair dryer. It's very near the Boulevard where you can walk and enjoy the view or entertain yourself with some good bargains at a tiny flee market. Experienced some short power... More

Pros: 1. Great location. The room is across the boulevard so you get a wonderful view of the ocean. It's also right across the pier where you can take ferries to other islands. Lots of nearby restauarnts, too. 2. Fast and stable wi-fi. 3. The room is old, but it's complete. There's a minibar, bathtub, safe, hair dryer, electric kettle.,... More

I have stayed at the Tavern a couple of times and also across the street at the Tavern Annex. Tavern is the best option for nice Surigao accommodation, especially if you need to catch a boat to the nearby islands. It is right on the road next to the bay. If you get a room with a water view (which... More

We came in the evening and the hotel looked so lovely.It has a simple and spacious lobby. The front desk ladies were accommodating.The King bed was very soft and comfortable. The room was quite big. Our room was facing the boulevard so we got the nice morning view. Tip: for late snacks order early as room service ends at 10pm.

We booked in here for 2 nights , extended to 4 as our flight was cancelled due to a typhoon. Our original room had a view of a wall only but at least it was quiet at night. The 2nd two nights we "upgraded" to a city view room as other rooms were already booked. The problem is the constant... More

I have stayed here several times and have had nice rooms and good service always. The ocean view with a balcony is a must. It's a few hundred more peso then the older city view room but worth it. Room is 2400 a night 50 bucks including breakfast but is right on the ocean with a balcony. The Boulevard below... More
