When built the hotel must have been the latest in luxury, however nothing has changed since. We did hear a typewriter, and if the radio switch had worked, would not have been surprised if Richard Nixon's voice had rang out!
However this was part of its charm. The bedroom was comfortable - the views from the room, restaurant and bar were fantastic, and the service good.
Some tips - bring cash (Pesos), there is no ATM and they weren't very keen on Dollars - the good thing is that you won't need very much. Without being asked they sent a car down to meet us on the overnight coach from Manila. The tourist information office in Banaue (turn right out of the entrance) is very helpful and the trips good. Give yourself at least 3 whole days to see the sights.
I would recommend this hotel to any traveller, there are others in town closer to the coach stop and Information Centre, but this is the largest and best located hotel.
