I have stayed here on 3 trips to Batad over the last 5 years. All accommodation in Batad is basic with no fan, private bathroom, wardrobes etc. I paid 250 pesos for my room. Note, it can get very hot in the night time in the room without the window open so bring insect spray. The toilets and showers are... More

Aside from the native huts, and despite the wooden floors, the unfinished concrete blocking the amazing view from its restaurant is an absolute eyesore. Given the amount of money they can use to finish up the place, aesthetical value would go along way. The biggest inn towering over the terrace, unfinished with metal wiring jotting out. Decent food. Management mentality... More

The rooms are clear and super simple. We stayed there for 2nights. You have to pay for hot shower and charge your phone/camera etc. It looks like some construction work was stopped some time ago and the amphitheater view is slightly "damaged" by concrete pillars when looking from the room's window. The view is still nice though. The food is... More

Spent 3 days, 2 nights in Batad. Didn't stay here but ate here more than in other restaurants. All restaurants there basically serve the same food; they just vary in price and quanity. Simon's offers the best value for money for the same kind of food found in other restaurants (Rita's and Hillside Inn, among others). I recommend Simon's rice.... More

Simple room. Clean, great view. 200pp. Shared shower/toilet - hot water. Food is great and they serve a solid pizza! Portion sizes are very good. Spacious lodge and quite airy - the rooms although small, are light. Great staff.

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
