I travel to Cebu every month and stay for an average of three nights per trip. I also like to stay in different hotels and compare hotels that offer the best value for travellers.
Here are my thoughts on Castle Peak:
Lobby was small but front desk people were accommodating and friendly.
Hallway going to my room had a distinctive odour which I can only describe as an old smell. There was an empty cart and some other stuff also in the hallway which were sitting there and becomes an obstruction and an eyesore. That empty cart and other stuff did not move for the two nights I was there.
My room was around 10 to 12 square meters. It was cozy enough but could use a rearrangement of the furniture particularly for the TV and the table for it was partially blocking the closet. To expound, if you want to put your stuff inside the closet you have to do it sideways.
Toilet and bath was OK but the shower was a bit low for me and it did not have hot water. Apparently the hot water in my shower was broken according to the front desk.
I was also greatly disappointed with housekeeping. I went out at 6am and came back at 12nn. At 1pm before going out again I personally told the front desk to send some one to clean my room. She acknowledged my request by smiling and asking for my room number. When I arrived at 8:30pm my room was as it was when I left it. I did not bother to call housekeeping or the front desk for I was tired and wanted to rest.
Sleep quality was ok for the bed was firm and so were the pillows. Noise from the hallway was greatly reduced for my room was at the end/corner of the hallway.
The daily buffet breakfast was great. You get to choose four main dishes unlike with other hotels where in they let you choose from three.
Overall you get what you pay for and I think that if I had hot water in the shower and my room was made up by the time I get home I would give it another shot.
