I stayed one night at Hotel Tavern in Surigao City, April 2014. I would have stayed more if I had the chance. A very nice place to stay with a beautiful overlook of the ocean and boardwalk. I recomend getting an ocean view room up as high as possible. The sunrise in the morning is worth it. This was one... More

I love to stay @ Tavern when I am in Surigao city. The rooms have balconies and the water views are simply stunning. You can watch sunrise and sunset from the boulevard or from your room balcony. There are small boats across the hotel for guests to visit other islands. I would recommend Siargao Island. The restaurant @ Tavern is... More

I stayed there Sept 2013 - nothing special but nothing really to complain about. Breakfast was better than other places of a similar price. Staff friendly, clean and hot water. The location is good - walking distance to centre and on seafront although you do have to cross the road.

After having spent much of my time in the area on Dinagat Island, it was nice to spend the last days of my trip in the Tavern Hotel. If you've never spent time in the more remote Philippine Islands, then you might have to adjust your expectations. There are surprises you will discover about the day to day life here.... More

The hotel is very well managed. It is extremely clean and the staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. The free breakfast gives a vary wide range. The hotel is divided into old and new wings. My last visit I stayed in the new wing. It has a small balcony and looked over the ocean. This time I stayed... More

Hotel has a great location on the boulevard and nice restaurant besides with a live music on the evening time. But, rooms are already tired and hotel needs fast renovation and updating to 2010 century. Wi- fi was poor at weekend time while hotel was a big circus with weddings and other happenings. Breakfast was ok, with a well made... More

Stayed here one night as I missed my boat to Dinagat island. Had a lunch here. Nice menu at a reasonable price. Room was ok. Only down side for me was that the room had a single bed. Not slept in one of thesed for a longtime. Always felt I was going to fall out. Breakfast buffet was ok.

Hotel is located on the Surigao foreshore beach road. Front lobby overlooks the bay, nearby islands and fishing boats. Hotel lobby and reception area look great with friendly welcoming staff and reception personnel. Check in is a fairly smooth process. Hotel rooms are newer above the reception than on the far wing. Far wing rooms are fairly dated with very... More

The facilities and restaurants were great. The price was affordable and there is great value in it. The help staff was friendly and very accomodating. However, the office staff was not so friendly. When we had questions regarding our stay, they were smiling but not forthcoming with the information. I felt as if we were getting in the way of... More

Thank you for your keen review, particularly on the service standard at the Front Desk. We do have a guest relations desk but that too may have not provided you enough information that you needed. We have made adjustments, and can assure you of a better reception during your next visit to our hotel. More
