When I was in Cebu last year I overheard many people talking about the Kiwilodge. Having grown up in NZ the temptation was too great to not visit this month. Well I'm glad I did. Rather than repeat what Darryl has written in a previous review to which I wholeheartedly agree, I'll add to his comments...
Having worked extensively in the hospitality industry, I can see that this business has been a labour of love for Dick. When you retain staff for many years in this trade you are doing something right. The rooms are fine and priced as value for money for the category of this hotel. The food was outstanding, in fact the best Western food I've had in SE Asia outside of a fine dining environment. Some amazingly innovative food for the money (a Kiwi influence there).
It was great to see sport in clarity on flat screens in the bar and the people I met there topped off what was a good ambience in the restaurant bar.
I could write a lot more but simply, if you want great value rooms, service, food and location then look no further!!
Well done Dick
