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.
