Hi, yes, HM is a good place. Room is good enough. Roof top is nice. I hate oysters so I can't say I loved it. Barbecue is a good idea for sure, but I couldn't see barbecue anymore (had it every day for a long time). When I said "no thank you", the lady looked at me like "what kind of unsocial person is that?". Yeah sorry, I didnt like barbecue that night, am I a bad person now? Jeez...
Harold's Mansion is one of those places that knows it's the only game in town. And so is the behaviour of the staff. "Be happy that you are here and don't expect too much from us, because you save money here anyway. So shutup and take it or leave it."
Extension of the room? "Okay..." no smile.
Sorry folks, sometimes competition is good. I think if there was a second competitor, Harolds Mansion would piss their pants and start acting nice to their guests. "Please come again."
I have a big big problem with so called "Backpacker Hostels" which have this arrogant feel and they think the lack of a high price allows them to treat guests like a beggar.
Sorry, that is just my feeling and it made me a little angry, because there is no alternative in town, as far as I could see.
Those personal things aside, HM is a good place.
"Dumaguete - City of the gentle people." - good joke.
