This was once a very nice house , and in some respects still is but it s been left without any maintenance and looks very shabby and dated now , and to take it back to its former glory will take some work ! My room was large ,( the good bit ), but the furniture was very old and scruffy ! The air conditioning unit was the very old style right next to your head and was so noisy I couldn't sleep with it on !There were large damp patches on the bedroom and bathroom ceilings and in the bathroom the decorative surround was hanging off the wall ! The bath and the shower looked like they had not been cleaned properly and the shower controls were not working as they should , the shower was either boiling hot or cold ! The breakfast was rice ,egg and a few pieces of pork and a cup of coffee ! That was it !! I was asked if I wanted another cup of coffee and had one each day I was here , I also asked for some toast with jam ! But on my last day I was given a bill for the extra coffees and toast !! That was a first for me as I was paying for bed and breakfast ! The location is in the middle of the island so you need transport everywhere !, I asked if they had a cycle I could borrow , but they didn't have one , There is nothing here, it really is in the middle of nowhere ! They charged me 400P for an airport pick up , and I got my own the taxi to Cebu city 200P . The cost of this place was 2500P per night plus extra breakfast costs ! This was my most expensive place I booked while I was in the Philippines . I feel bad that I can't say anything nice about this bed and breakfast as the staff where lovely and I had a nice talk with the owners . But this is a review site ,and I would like to have read my review as well as all the other five star reviews they have received from other guests before I stayed here .
