My self and my fiance stayed at the mayflower in for 4 days, after a friend recomended it , i was a bit worried what it would be like when i saw how cheap it was ! but i was pleasantly suprised ! after 4 days at the mayflower inn , we then went to bohol to see the tarsia monkeys ! and bohol island for 4 days WOW ,amazing place ,go there ! we then returned to cebu and stayed for another 4 days in the mayflower in before going to the northern philippines . the mayflower in looked like it had just been renovated , it had good air conditioning , a fire detection system , good fast lift ,but most of all ,the rooms were bright , nice colors , very,! very ! clean ,with nice clean sheets ,towels etc and good pillows.
There was also a kelvinator air conditioner , cable tv , and one of the best bathrooms ,in any hotel i have stayed in asia. or the philippines,with the best hot cold shower , ! really the only thing i could complain about was , there was no refridgerator , and the bed squeaked a little ! apart from that I HAVE STAYED IN 5 STAR HOTELS THAT ARE NOT AS CLEAN AND FRIENDLY , AS THE MAYFLOWER INN .
the staff were helpful and friendly and honest ! and the security was excellent , they were helpful gettind taxi's ,opening the door , and helping with luggage , they even recorded the taxi's ID ,when you left to go out & advising us were and were not to go !
There was a beautiful indoor garden ,with a lovely fish pond etc ,next to the resturant , and the food allthough basic was cheap at 85 peso per serve , rice ,chicken,pork,fish etc. Doris the lady chef was friendly , allways smiling and made us welcome as if in her own home ,and her home style filipino cooking was really good ,the resturant had wi fi for internet , and a laptop for free calls to usa and some other countries. and free newspapers.
There was a good bakery a few doors down and it was close by taxi to allyura mall and places like jolli bee , etc. and central to cebu , ferry's and airport. unlike mactan.
we stayed on the ground floor room 1008 ? and allthough there was no view out the window ,there was a small pleasant garden. next time we stayed on the 3rd floor room 307 ? and the room was just as good ,each room had a double and a single bed., but upstairs ,the view was only out over other buildings , but your not paying for a view ! lol .
just for the record , i have no association with the mayflower inn , but after 6 weeks travelling in the philippines from south to north ,for the second time ! the mayflower was really comfortable , very clean , and friendly ! and had the" best shower" and one of the best ,out of all the places we stayed , from NO STAR TO 5 STAR !...Ric from AUSTRALIA.
