Either the place has declined or others have dramatically different thoughts about this place..
I will agree that the parking is NOT perfect. Aside from the lack of spacious parking in the front (downhill from the entrance) the only other parking was along the side which was a challenge, onto itself, for even a skilled driver.
Those issues aside, my only major complaint was the basically average breakfast buffet. I thought it rather over priced as did my wife.. She, a Pinay, has had international experience with eating at a host of restaurants. Generally speaking, hotel food ranks way near the bottom.. However, owing to its' convenient location and lack of breakfast availability elsewhere in Bagiuo. It was tried once but perhaps not again..
The hotel is spacious and even the supposed studio rooms well above par.. They are definitively larger than even Las Vegas low priced units. Thus, the owners score well in this arena..
The fact that they charge way too much for the in room goodies is simply an accepted fact. If you don't want to pay for it, obtain your snacks elsewhere..
The room itself was most pleasant. Again on par or aboe with many other establishments around.
Trouble with Bagiuo is that there are NOT the groups of hotels that it needs to deal with the traveling public. Further, Filipinos are so used to lesser conditions that the hotel simply provides as most will accept. Above that and ALL pay..
Manor House's problems stem from its' out of the way and hard to reach location. The on facility stores are woefully overpriced and woefully under qualitied if this be a proper word.. You pay way too much for something that lasts only a real short time.
However, you are locked in. If your first trip to Bagiuo, then you are in serious trouble..
However, the general quality of the hotel is well above standard. I never experienced the negatives of any staff, but, apparently they are getting worse..That simply is NOT good..
Because the hotel is perhaps the sole hotel of quality in Bagiuo. Aside from Microtel (just down the street), it deems itself outside the realm of having quality service. In other words, if you don't like it here, go elsewhere..
Something endemic to America as well.
Far as the internet issue goes, I don't use a laptop so, not really my perview.. However, such pricing is rather stiff considering the situation of the hotel being the mainstay of business travelors.
