    Basic accommodation”

    The big advantage staying here for an old timer like me was that I did not have to walk all the way down to the village. Great views from the seating area. My room was very basic, backpacker style. The owner's son was the only staff person there. He met me up the mountain at the end of the road and carried my suitcase down and back up which I compensated him for. I was more than happy to pay so that I didn't have to carry my suitcase. He also prepared my meals and organised my Guide for the trek to the waterfall.

    Best seats in the house - could use some facelift, though”

    The inn has a breath-taking view of the Batad Rice Terraces. It is also nearest the pickup/dropoff point so getting in and out is not an issue at all. This is also the reason why many travellers pass by the inn first to either get ready for the trek or just sit there and enjoy the view. I personally enjoyed the food, especially the Terrace View Soup, Sardines Omelette, and one dish that is in their secret menu (yes, they do have a secret menu, though I'm not sure how deep that menu is). Points to improve on - I think the fa ilities the inn could use a facelift right now. The rooms could use some improvement. Also, almost everything comes with a price, though it's kind of understandable given the cheap rate of the room itself. All in all, I had a nice stay in Topview. I'll definitely choose this place again should I return to Batad in the future. Thank you Tita Grace for the hospitality! More power to you and the inn!:)

    It could be an awesome place”

    Been there for the third time and this time it was a major letdown. There used to be a cold shower, now there's no shower anymore - apparently a water heater was installed at one point and it was replaced by a bucket when it broke. The teenage girl that was the only staff most of the time was clearly not up to the task. The food we had for lunch / dinner was OK, but not much was available at all. Breakfast was a disaster - a single fried egg with dry, old toast, no butter or anything else is clearly not acceptable. Also we had to literally beg until she sent her brother to get us a couple of beers in the evening. I know it is off season, but we had reserved weeks before and it's a shame that this place isn't under better management.

    Better in Batad”

    Despite making an Agoda reservation far in advance the staff there was unaware and unprepared for our arrival. The place is run by what seems to be a large family. The women in the family are very pleasant but often trying to extract money. The men are aloof or otherwise occupied. During our one night stay the men became very intoxicated and loud. This made for a very uncomfortable and long night. While there was an attempted apology in the morning, there was no offer of compensation. There are places in Batad at lower cost with better service and views just as nice. Reservations not required.

    Enjoyed my stay, not for everyone ”

    Highest viewpoint from a guesthouse in Batad, good value for money. The atmosphere was poor while I was there and I was the only other traveller staying at that time, but I'm sure during more busy times it is better. They offered food and massage but the massage was not available. Very basic home stay but it is to be expected in Batad. Overall would recommend for the experience but do not expect anything special from this homestay.

    intresting stay”

    the view and location

    The location of this place is amazing and you couldn't ask for a better view. However expect to go back to basics and back to nature. The electric in the room I stayed in was intermittent at best. I ended up sharing another couples room because my single didn't have a mosquito net. The family are friendly and have very sweet children. Saw some fairly big rats so not a place for the faint hearted. There is also additional cost for charging devices. Good for a one night stop over if visiting the near by waterfalls and as I said before the view is out of this world.

    LOCATION & SCENERY”

    Highest viewpoint from a guest house with spectacular scenery of the terraces and the village. The owner and staff are very hospitable and helpful. The dinner and breakfast selection is good .

    The owner and staff are very welcoming and very helpful with planning your hiking. Meals were good and the porridge for breakfast was a real treat. The views from the veranda were wonderful and also from the window in my bedroom. The views of valley are mesmerizing. There is a homey feel to this Homestay with the pet dog and the hen and her chicks mingling with the guests. Good value.

    Be carefull with schemes”

    The owner of the hotel and her "sisters" of Banaue have a scheme to trick guests into paying much more for transportation and tours than they should. The hotel provides the guests names to the "guides" in the town and they go wait for the tourists in the bus station. They charge much more for the jeepney, do not go with them, just ignore the people holding the sign with your name on. They also sell guided tours. I booked a tour with Jasmine, who I was told to be the hotel owner's sister, so I thought she was reliable, but she never showed up. Later I found out they made the same thing to other tourists. I endep up my trip in the police station.
