The Manor at Camp John Hay is still my first choice when in Baguio. We have been staying here regularly for the past years and it offers the best accommodations in my opinion. Our latest stay was last weekend for the Chinese New Year holiday. We got a garden view room as I requested because I enjoy looking at the nice garden while relaxing in the veranda of our room. Checking in was a breeze when we arrived last Friday evening, with a hot green tea offered to me while waiting for the room key. Since the hotel was fully booked, the only avalaible parking was quite far, at the back of Forest Lodge, but that's ok, we've parked there previously, and the same was lighted and with security guards.
The location is the best. I always make it a point to walk around John Hay early mornings to enjoy the cold weather and the pine scent. Since we went there to relax and we've already seen all the sights in Baguio, we just stayed inside John Hay most of the time, except to have lunch at Cafe by the Ruins and to buy goodies at Good Shepherd. There are a lot of restaurants at the Ayala Technohub and the Mile Hi Center. There was also a Sunday mass at the Clubhouse so no need to go out.
We had massage at the hotel spa which was very relaxing.
The bathroom looks dated but it's clean and we never had problems with the hot water. My complaint is that I had to ask for shampoo from the housekeeping people because we were there for 3 nights and they put only 1 teeny weeny bottle in the bathroom. We also got only 1 newspaper during our stay. We tried the informal dinner by the camp fire at the Little Camp John Hay which I heard was operated by the hotel during weekends only. The food was so-so and the waiters manning the place seemed overwhelmed and didn't quite know how to attend to the guests, I had to remind them several times because it took them forever to get our orders and our food took forever to arrive.
