We went there at around 10 in the morning but was told that we can chack in only by 1PM so we decided to explore (for the nth time) tagaytay first.
By 1 in the afternoon, we checked in at the Lake Hotel. We got the Deluxe Lake View Room to have a better view of the Taal volcano. Located on the 3rd floor of the building, the room was actually big and spacious for two as it has 1 queen size and 1 single bed, with its own private veranda. The only thing that my boyfriend did not like is the orthopaedic queen size bed. It was uncomfortable for him because at that time he had a back pain (old age!).
Like a typical hotel, bell boy will assist you in checking in your room. You also get some privacy here since there are only more or less 30 rooms in total. There is also a pool for kids. I just don’t know if it’s heated, since we have not tried swimming during our stay. Half of the pool has cover, while the other half has none, so you have the option either to get tanned or hide from the heat of the sun.
Bathroom was spacious, with bath tub. There’s even a glass window with curtain, perfect for couples, and also gives you the option to have privacy if you are with others.
Location wise, it is superb as it is just along the highway. It’s easily accessible to restaurants and Lourdes church, if you go there on weekends.
The next day, we ate breakfast (well, I actually forced him to eat breakfast! :p). The view from their café early in the morning was stunning! We’ve been to Tagaytay for a lot of times but we decided to check in at the Lake Hotel because of its majestic view of the Taal. The weather was cold, perfect to escape the burning heat in Manila.
Breakfast was not that impressive, not much variety of food, but good enough to make your tummy full.
