The Tavern Hotel is a classic business hotel, with most friendly and professional staff. The buffet breakfast is good, but not great, in terms of not so much choices. The wifi connection is very poor. We went for a room with balcony, coz we thought sitting out in the evening would be nice. The pitch dark view and the tiny... More

They provide hot and cold water for free while EY Hotel didn't have when we stayed there for one night just last June. Although the package had breakfast we didn't satisfy the foods offered also its wifi connection was very slow but... More

The addl rate to get a deluxe sea view is worth it. Good facilities comparatively: Hot water, bidet, cable tv (40 plus channels?) good restaurant (ej's), good food. For food: try nilasing na hipon. Live band is great too Rate includes breakfast.

Was on business trip last week and stayed in Hotel Tavern Surigao. While dining with lady bankers one evening, I noted something moving underneath the table in front us. It turned out to be a huge RAT! The biggest I've seen in my life -- size of a full grown cat almost. I called the waiter to check and when... More

Excellent rooms and staff were extremely helpful. Ask for a balcony room but pack your mask and some earplugs if you want to sleep in. THE hotel is very handy to all the shops and there is a great shop for every day needs on the other side of the street

Having been a customer of Gateway for many years and a bad experience last time, we decided to try the Tavern this time. A great experience from the airport pickup to the airport drop off. The sea view deluxe with balcony is definitely the pick of the rooms with a fantastic view of the harbour and boulevard . Morning breakfast... More

Hotel is reasonably priced and is located near the boulevard. Receptionists and staffs were very helpful with our needs. Since we are leaving for Siargao early morning, they arranged for our service going to the port and they gave us water and sandwich for breakfast since we won't be able to avail their free buffet breakfast. Room is average and... More
