Nice and clean place. We were upgraded to a bigger room despite of last minute changes on our booking. Great staff. Very accommodating and helpful. Batanes is such a wonderful place and people in general are very friendly,
The 3rd floor room #14 is big. They have this honesty nook per floor where you can get coffee/milo/tea for 20pesos. Just put your payment in the designated tupperware. Free potable water in a dispenser (cold/normal/hot) also available The hot shower is working. My view is the Naidi Lighthouse which is great. Staffs are friendly and they are nice. They serve free breakfast and free airport transfer. They don't have WIFI like most of the lodges in town. I used my SMART mobile data which is ok. There are sari-sari stores nearby and a grocery store across street. Town Plaza is like 2mins. walk and Naidi Lighthouse is around 10-15mins. walk. Restaurants nearby are : Harbour Cafe/Beehan Restaurant/Octagon Bed and Breakfast/Cafe Napoli/BikSaFraffe cafe
PRO's: Good location - walking distance to many restos/shops/town center Spacious room - comfortable to move around Complete bathroom amenities - hot/cold shower, bidet, shampoo, shower gel, toilet paper Super friendly staff - always smiling and greeting guests (everyone in Batanes is so nice and courteous!) Good breakfast - nothing special but still satisfying :) Nice ambience - the lodge was bright, airy, homey Free roundtrip airport transfers (most, if not all, Batanes hotels offer this) CON'S: Walls a bit thin - you can easily hear sounds coming from nearby rooms Leaky faucet in our bathroom with a high-pitched sound, very annoying Bathroom rug was never replaced for the entire 4 nights we were there, even though it was already soaked Lacked tables in the room - most of our stuff were just on the floor…
Very near the airport, walkable if you're into that. They offer airport transfers in case you need one. The place was at the heart of everything, but it was still peaceful and quiet, especially during rest time. Staff are very courteous, rooms are clean, set breakfast ok. Tour assistance was also available and I'm glad I took the tricycle tours which made me enjoy the best views while travelling. I also left my jacket and they sent it to me on the same day, free-of-charge, even when I insisted I pay for the shipping. Thanks Nathaniel's Lodge!
Everything is complete but just average quality. The service is great, very hospitable and accommodating staff. The tour package recommended was excellent, tour guide knows his stuff. I would stay here again. Thank you.
