“Classy hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

I stayed here on three separate occasions during my 12 day Philippines holiday and each time had a deluxe room. The rooms appear similar as to how they are displayed on their website - very clean and modern, and I felt very comfortable staying there.

Some say the location is not that great, but for me it was conveniently located close to where my friends lived. Being on a main road, its also easy to get a taxi to wherever you wish to go - its about 170 pesos to get to Ayala Mall, or 100 to the airport. There is the Gaisano Mactan Island Mall not so far away as well (if you don't mind a bit of a walk), which has a department store for your shopping needs. Its also possible to catch a jeepney from outside to take you to the Lapu-Lapu Shrine...sure, you could take a cab there, but its a good experience to travel the way the locals do.

I am not a big breakfast eater, so the free breakfast offering was sufficient for me - there was a good variety, although I preferred the longanisa (local sausage) with egg, rice, watermelon and choice of juice or tea/coffee.

The staff were always friendly and helpful, and the one time I had an issue (with the tv), it was resolved in a satisfactory manner.

The only negative things I can say is that in a couple of the rooms the shower water was not that hot. Not such an issue in summer, but I don't know what it would be like in winter.

It would be a better hotel if it had a pool. I was informed, however, that the pool across the road at Bellavista Hotel is available for a small fee.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are quieter and worth paying extra for

One night here and really cooped up. Not a thing to do in this very average place. Room was clean and nice but rated this low as I lost an entire day twiddling my thumbs. No fault with the service but the location sucked

Dear Mr. Seraglios,

Thank you for your stay at Goldberry Suites & Hotel.

Goldberry Suites & Hotel strives for excellence in guest comfort and satisfaction, and deeply appreciates your review and the time taken to express same.

Even if our hotel is located along a major and main road, the lack of commercial business activity in this Island can be the reason for this feeling. I am pleased to advise you that our Executive Management Team is currently aware of your expressed concerns and is already working with our Property Owners for new developments to address this to create more activities & entertainments in our surroundings.

Once again Goldberry Suites & Hotel sincerely thanks you for your stay and your review as we look forward to your stay once again in the not too distant future.

Should you wish to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact me at your convenience at gm@goldberrysuites.com.


Sincerely,

Goldberry Suites & Hotel Management

plus:
- free airport transfer,
- very clean, neat and modern,
- very friendly and helpful staff,
- very nice rooms (glass shower/bathroom),
- nice flat-TV
minus:
- no swimming-pool,
- no breakfast-buffet, only a very small set-breakfast,
- standard rooms are to the main-road and very noisy (choose a deluxe room to the garden, very quite)
overall:
we will always come again and can recommend this hotel to everyone for 1 to 4 nights (near airport)

Room Tip: the standard-rooms are to the mainroad and very noisy, the deluxe-rooms are to the garden, very quit...

Clean and well maintained room.
Very accommodating staff and service.
Only downside is location is not that superb since it is located along the road, its an advantage for those who have appointment with the city municipal and its just minutes away from the airport.
And their food are way over priced with limited choices.

Goldberry Suites is a limited purpose business hotel with little else going for it. The food at the Vienna Koffeehaus was sub-par. The rooms look clean but are not properly steam-vacuumed. Walking around for a few minutes resulted in very soiled socks. On the bright side, the staff are very helpful, so was the airport shuttle. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere and accessing anywhere on foot can be dangerous. Will not visit again. (Don't know why its ranked so high on tripadvisor.)

In January, I stayed for one night at the Goldberry. My plane arrived at 01:00 AM and the Goldberry representative was waiting for me when I walked out of the baggage claim. In less than fifteen minutes I was checking into the hotel. I stayed for one night, as my dive resort was picking me up at 11:30 AM.

My studio room was quiet, comfortable, modern and nicely equipped (refrigerator with min- bar, complimentary water, packages of coffee, kettle, shampoo, etc.). There were no windows in my room, so in the morning it did feel a little dark. My rate included breakfast and it was served at an adjacent restaurant where I was given a choice from several set plates. The food was enough to get me going, but it only included one cup of coffee, so I paid for a second cup.

I looked around the area a little and there was not too much of interest. There was a small sari-sari booth (not a walk-in store) across the street and next door there was a Chinese bank with an ATM.

The Goldberry was absolutely perfect for what I wanted and needed. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, and I felt very secure there. I made my own reservations online through the Goldberry website and it was very easy. If I again have a late plane, or need a room for a night by the airport, I would not hesitate to return to the Goldberry.
