The hotel is situated inside Camp John Hay, just behind The Manor, about 1 km away upon entering the gate. The room we stayed in - Family Room - was just right and quite spacious for our family - 3 adults and 2 young children. 2 queen beds were provided, a walk-in closet, simple kitchen equipment (microwave, water heater, bottled...

Food is great and price is very reasonable compare to the hotel near the area. We ordered Cured Salmon Salad and grilled salmon. Its not crowded and most of all lots of parking spaces at the back of the hotel. Maybe will try to book here next time.

This place offers very cozy rooms. Decors give you a Christmasy feel. Rooms are clean and the food is great. Also, their restaurant is amazing. Great bang-for-the-buck. Best bed-and-breakfast place in Baguio.

We stayed here last Christmas and it was spectacular. If you want a quiet place inside Camp John Hay - this is the place to be. Their lobby is bigger than the Manor's and it's even more relaxing. Just stay in the garden-view rooms because it's better than the forrest-view rooms. ☺️
