Good Aussie Restaurant/Hotel in an Isolated Area

Staff Service, Free shuttle to Airport, and Restaurant with LIve Entertainment.
I came from Swagman Angeles City hotel on their bus which charges 600 pesos for the two hour ride to Ermita area (compare that to 200 pesos for a ride from Dau bus station to Cubao or Pasay). The Ermita hotel is on the very narrow A. Flores street (bus almost cannot travel down it to stop in front of the hotel), in a residential neighborhood, not really within walking distance of much except a local park and a convenience store. Taxis do not usually go down A. Flores Street, so I walked to the convenience store and flagged down a taxi. Room is comfortable with empty refrigerator, and tiny bathroom. Took a taxi (60 pesos) to the Robinson's Malate, and had a great Filipino dinner with entertainment at the Zamboanga Restaurant a half block away. The Angeles Swagman Hotel is much less impressive with an non-airconditioned restaurant with okay food, but with mostly Australian tourists watching horse races. The Angeles Swagman is also in a residential neighborhood, far from the more interesting parts of Angeles city. A shuttle service (van) runs to Olongopo city for 500 pesos.

Ok for overnight.

Friendly staff,Nice dining area,location.
Was given an upgrade from economey to superior upon check in so as me and friend would which was nice. Staff are very nice and friendly and is OK location. Hotel has been upgraded a bit since I last arrived. Its OK for a 1 night stay as we had a flight next day but thats about it.Free shuttle to Airport is good although we didnt use as scheduled times were not suitable.Overall OK I geuss.

Very poor

Location to USEM, Airport pick up
Very poor. Hot water wasn't working. No hot water for either of the 2 mornings. Took maintenance 30 minutes in the afternoon to get hot water for 1 shower. Didn't work again the next day. Transportation service - if you're not there to be picked up at their time you still have to arrange for a cab.i will never stay here again. I've sent email and no response after 3 days.

Airport shuttle, Bus shuttles and Food is decent
Was only there for a short stay which was ok. But I wouldn't want to stay there for more than that because it is only a 1 star hotel

A bit over priced but the food and room was good.

The bus service to A/C, food and the staff.
