I came to Bacolod to see the old houses/ museums in Silay, the mountain scenery in Patag National Park and the Hawaiian Phillipine Sugar Company area. i booked a superior room on- line from Australia for P1600, and was offered a hotel car pick- up for P 500. when I told he hotel of my travel plans in the area, they offered a car and driver for 10 hours (their minimum period for out of town travel) plus the cost of fuel. i accepted this offer, and was driven around by Ricardo in a Toyota diesel. the mountain scenery was very nice, But the road became very rough and the last few kilometers were impassible. I enjoyed our roadside stop for a coffee and grilled chicken, and saw a lot of sugar cane operations, including cutting by hand and buffalo-powered transport of the cane.
The hotel is clean and very good value, with a good choice of breakfast dishes, including omelettes made to order. My room ( number 412) had an old TV with a good choice of channels ( including BBC, CNN, Australian Network and HBO), a bar fridge, very effective (but noisy) air conditioning, good hot water service and a view of the car park.
Unlike some other reviewers, I found it very quiet at night, and at 7 am there was still not much traffic or noise outside.
Unfortunately the superior room I booked was not available for some vague reason, so there was no coffee or tea making, and I didn't know this although the hotel emailed me several times to confirm my booking in the few days before I arrived.
The free wifi worked fairly well in my room, and was much better in the lobby and restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is very good value for its cleanliness and quiet, good choice of TV channels, bar fridge, help with transport, and tasty breakfast.
