Hotel Tavern is located near the port so you can easily take a ride to Dinagat or to Siargao. The baywalk also have a good view of the boats and sunset so I recommend getting a room facing that direction. It is a more expensive than the other rooms though. There's a nearby pizza place with a delicious yet cheap... More

They said it's the provider's fault that wifi was not working in the room. It was working most of the time in the lobby. The room 419 was ocean view with a balcony, big and comfortable. The shower head is not good, should be replaced. When we arrived, the room card was also not activated, activator was now working. The... More

We passed by Surigao for a business trip to Butuan. We arrived late back from the travel expo we attended there and this hotel was such a welcome place to rest in after an exhausting day. It was very clean and updated and well maintained. The resto bar downstairs is a plus. During check out the following early morning, the... More

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
