Manila Southwoods Manor
Ranked #5 of 5 Hotels in Calatagan
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed at Manila Southwoods Manor on 31 December 2012 and it was mostly rundown. Rooms were dingy and the restroom had a moldly smell. The keyhole and lock was old making it difficult to open and close the door. The room was spacious with a mini kitchen and living room with fold out bed. Surprisingly, despite the stove and refrigerator, they had no plates and cutlery save for 2 glasses on the table so having the mini kitchen was of no use. What they lacked in amenities, they made up with service though. Room service was prompt, courteous and cheerful. Stay at this hotel if you have no other option, otherwise, pick a better one.

My very frist impression of Southwoods Manor from the external is - Is is a deserted building? The exterior of this hotel is very run-down. Check-in is fast, probably because there are no other people around other than the reception. Typical room design and layout, room is a bit old though.

My room is facing the road, so occassionally, you will hear jeepneys roaring past the road below. I am not against this as jeepneys are part of Philippines. No jeepneys, no Philippines. But I do like the balcony, facing a large piece of greenery.

No buffet breakfast, only a-la-cart. Probably also due to the low human traffic. No complimentary coffee and tea in room. No kettle to boil water. No frills.

I strongly believe that this hotel needs a major facelift. They might have buffet breakfast by then.
