The inn is not a luxury place but you are in the middle of now where and shouldnt expect anything fancy. It has toilets (bring your on toiletpaper) which are clean, facilities to wash and sit down. The food is good home made filipino cuisine and the local rice is to die for. We had lunch and enjoyed the view.... More

Nothing great about this inn, but the same could be said about other hillside inns as well. Given the nature of this destination (rural and isolated)--don't expect any 5-star hotel ambiance and service. Everything is basic from the rooms to the food. Food may be priced higher than expected because of obvious logistics concerns. Rooms are small, just good enough... More

Only the two of us in the hotel. Worth every 200 peso/pax. Beautiful view, probably the best in Batad. Hot water, lots of quiet, very good food, very friendly staff and nice family. Clean and simple food, good mattress and pillows. Quiet, but it was low season! We played guitar with the staff at night and had a peaceful evening!... More

We , a family of four, stayed here for a night. In the morning someone stole quite a bit of money and my husbands credit cards. After filing a complaint with the banaue police station, they found some of our money. Turns out it was the son of Simon, the owner, who stole the money!! And it wasn't the first... More

We stayed at Simon's Inn as a couple for two nights during June 2013. The inn sits on the hillside above the village of Batad with amazing views across the rice terraces. It's a long, hot and steep walk there. We planned on walking all the way from Banuae but were very glad we took a tricycle to the junction... More

Once you've dealt with all the steps that take you to Batad stay here! Simon's guesthouse has amazing view and loads of space to sit and enjoy the scenery and food. An extensive menu which is well worth sampling. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Highly recommended.

The worst kind service i have experienced in my whole life.Discorteous arrogant waitress(,the daughter in law of the owner)..I ordered food,she delivered the wrong one but since she's busy attending the others she made a scene by debating with me as costumer insisting to accept what she had served or else she'll take it back but will require me to...

There are a number of hillside guesthouses in Batad which all seemed to be relative similar - basically backpacker accommodation with large rooms with multiple beds and shared bathrooms. They also all seem to be similarly priced. We had initially booked (and paid) for a room at the Hillside Inn but when we arrived at 4pm they had given it... More
