For the past 40 years everytime our family would go to Baguio we would always stay at the Baguio Country Club... no other place. But this March 2012, our family was attending a family reunion with my own family and we decided to stay somewhere else for a change and there was no second thoughts in choosing to stay at The Manor at Camp John Hay. We rightfully booked for the 2 bedroom suite as we brought along our 2 kids aged 4 and 1 respectively and their respective yayas.
When we arrived after a long drive from Manila we were greeted by the hotel staff and was given a malunggay lemonade drink... refreshing and unique taste. The elevators going up to the rooms were quite small (maybe good for 6pax only). The room we booked was huge having 2 bedrooms, 3 toilet and baths and a huge sala with a sofa set, lcd tv and a 6pax dining table. I was concerned initially when I realized there was no airconditioning in the room and there was just ceiling fans. Being in the middle of summer I thought it would get warm but was surprised that throughout the day the rooms were very comforatable and at nights we had to use the blankets. We had a nice view of the garden and an old Camp John Hay cottage. A thing that I noticed though was some parts of the suite had signs of bad maintenance and needed repairs already liked cracked counter top in the small kitchen, damaged bathtub and the wooden cabinets in the T/B which doesn't latch. Despite these observations, rooms and bathrooms were clean. Also during the Saturday night, there was a private party in the garden which was facing the master bedroom.... the party just went on and on untl past 12mn and we had quite a hard time sleeping because of the noise. Maybe management should limit the time of allowing parties near the rooms only until 10pm to be fair with the other guests.
Breakfast, though not included in the room rates, was good with a lot of food choices. A good come on also for staying at the Manor are the different attractions and activities that one can do inside CJH... horseback riding, paintball, golf, picnic area, outlet shopping, zip line, tree top adventures and a lot lot more... there were also a lot of resto choices within the vicinity of the hotel. One would have a choice not to go out of CJH anymore and just spend their whole time inside.
We will definitely stay here again during our next trip to the City of Pines....
