            What a fancy spot”

            Unlike anywhere else I stayed in Philippines, the Lodge at Camp John Hay really felt luxurious. The restaurant at the adjacent Manor, and the. Gardens there are very nice. We were pleased that the “dress code” preventing slippers was not enforced. Initially when checking in, I noticed there were two luxurious bath towels but no wash cloths (face cloths). I called the front desk who had someone bring up to hand towels (which were welcome) but had difficulty explaining what a wash cloth was. About 5 minutes later the same charming housekeeper brought back a couple wash cloths. Had the bath been fully stocked, the room would have been perfect. When we went to check out, I was a bit perturbed that it took so long to “check the room.” Luckily I waited until a couple pieces of clothing left behind were retrieved. Great place, great service. Staff at the restaurant at the Manor were Great!

            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as a first time visitor; however the rooms need maintenance tlc, ie carpet was tattered at threshold and burnt iron marks on carpet. The restaurant also had limited menu selection compared to the restaurant at The Manor. I give it a 4 Star rating.

            Loved the hotel. Perfect place away from the crowds. Clean place. Beds are good for two even if its a single bed. However I just didn’t like the smell coming from the outside. And the flushing of the toilet took a while before we figured out how to successfully flush.

            Prime location with options. The room was overlooking the golf field. ”

            I booked for three adults and arrived in the evening. The king size bed was fine for three and comfortable mattress and beddings. But needed to ask for extra things for the third guest while they should have known it and you dont have to ask. All the staff are courteous though. The lounge music was off in the weekend due to inhouse party event with loud music all over the place. A room we stayed on needed a coffee table by three seater sofa. The car key was captured at the lobby entrance while asking info during check-in time. The vallet service is somehow partial to guests and not handled professionally. Hotel staff knows the job better in receiving guests than security personnels.

            Quiet & Relaxing Place”

            Had a trouble checking in when the front desk informed me that my booking was rescheduled to June 8. Accdg to him, they received a call using my name & booking id / reservation number requesting for change in booking. I told them I did not make any call and my booking is thru Agoda so nobody is authorized to make changes unless its Agoda. Nevertheless, we were able to check in. Place is accessible to restos, shops but remains quiet & relaxing at night. Ideal for kids since it has a playground & a small park where kids can enjoy. Hopefully they can clean the carpets, provide extra slippers with no extra charge & speed up check in / check out process. Overall, staying here is worth the amount you pay.

            Best Location, Very accomodating staff, spacious rooms”

            Best Location in John Hay, accessible to all transport and walking distance to attractions within CJH. Has its own parking for guest cars at the back. Staff are friendly and hospitable. Rooms are very spacious even their regular rooms. Cons - facade needs a facelift, and some fixtures in the bathroom need to be replaced. Lower room floors tend to be quiet noisy as balcony is facing the parking lot. But over all the experience was great and would definitely go back.

            Memorable stay in Baguio for my Mom's 58th Birthday”

            Thank you Forest Lodge, we checked in from February 3-5, 2019 primarily to celebrate my Mom's 58th birthday. They were so kind and surprised my mom with a cake and balloons in her room. We appreciate the personal touch and it made my mom very happy. February 5 was also Chinese New Year, so our trip from Baguio's City proper we found Tikoy in our room, again from Forest Lodge! Thank you for making our stay great. Camp John Hay is always our preferred place to stay when visiting Pines City. Just a minor comment, the 2nd floor is where the staff room is so if you get easily bothered by noise, they come in and out bringing equipment/ dishes/ to the employees room, I strongly suggest you request to be transferred to an upper floor.

            In addition, haven't you noticed that even if Baguio is dubbed as the summer capital up North because of its cool climate and cold breezes. The fact is that it is no longer as cool as it was way back then. Perhaps this is so because of its being overly populated nowadays and there are no longer than many Pine trees available, as a result the climate in Baguio even during the cold season is now very warm and temperate. As such may I suggest that hotels put in air-conditioning in there rooms already. Kindly make a note of this. I would appreciate it very much.

            Excellent location inside Camp John Hay surrounded by pine trees and beautiful scenery. Dining inside the hotel is very expensive and you can dine at better priced restaurants within or just outside John Hay. Wide parking but shared with Manor hotel so it gets full. Rooms are clean and spacious, though the toilet needs to be cleaned better... staff are courteous and friendly.
