I had apprehensions about this boutique hotel ever since I've known about it 2 years ago. Their published rate is ridiculously expensive but they were constantly on promo from Agoda.com to group buying sites. We checked in on new year's eve and found out why they couldn't stick to their published rate.
The room we got was the one closest to the lobby, Room 101. We could hear the noise from the reception area of course and since it is on the ground level, the view from the window is the next door's apartelle. Our reason for staying in Tagaytay was to get away from the noise and pollution cause by the new year's celebration and for a moment we thought Lee was a terrible mistake. Surprisingly, at past 11pm, the area was quiet enough for a good night sleep.
My review breakdown:
Room - Spacious and clean with abundance of pillow. There's a couch where our 3 year old son could sleep and a breakfast table.
Bed - Comfy enough for me but the pillows were a bit too high for us. My husband had a hard time sleeping. I didn't use the pillow because halfway through my sleep, I could feel "stiff-neck" about to greet me when I wake up.
Bathroom - I'm a sucker for beautiful bathrooms and this one didn't make the cut. Although I have to give them credits for having a clean, actually usable bath tub.
Breakfast - Greatly disappointing. We have stayed in The Boutique and Discovery Country Suites where breakfasts swept us off our feet. Lee's was like breakfast cooked at home. No presentation, no vinegar for my daing, you have to call their waiter to serve the fruit dessert (really sour pineapple which we didn't eat anymore)... I don't know why they can't serve breakfast in our rooms (there's a P350 charge) instead all the guests have to go to the dining hall, an enclosed room with no windows at all. It would have been better if the dining hall was on the roof deck so we could at least enjoy Tagaytay's view.
- No WIFI connection... :(
- Room service rate was so expensive. Since we still have left-overs from lunch, we only ordered a couple of plain rice for P90 each plus service charge.
