One of the best venue for business meetings
I booked an overnight stay at the hotel for 45 pax which includes complementary breakfast and free use of the Rochester Hall. Before our stay, I made countless changes on the number of participants, fortunately, my contact person in the hotel was very accommodating, nice and helpful, he was considerate enough to make all the changes without any comments and for me that's already a plus. I also did not have the time to do a recon of the place so all planning was decided over the phone or emails.
Moving on, when we arrived in the morning, everything was already set inside the Rochester Hall, breakfast was already prepared. Sadly the breakfast dishes were not the usual Filipino breakfast, they served dished like embutido which was a dish served for lunch. I did not choose our breakfast menu as it was complementary. The rest of the food served during our stay was normal, it wasn't bad and it wasn't that delicious. The waiters were also helpful, since I don't drink coffee after lunch I asked for a tea, even though it wasn't part of our contract they still gave me the drink.
As for our rooms, we booked triple sharing rooms, I asked them to add one more bed so 4 pax in 1 room. The rooms were clean, there are laundry bags, slippers, water, tea bags, coffee, towels, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, and soap. There's cold and warm shower. The 4th bed is a folding bed and at first they provided the bed with only a think blanket so we called room service to provide the thick blanket, which was in the 3 beds, for the 4th bed because it was unfair for our friend to sleep using a thin blanket when we paid the same amount. The hotel is also wheelchair friendly.
Overall, I'd recommend this hotel and give them 5 stars for their service, hospitality, helpfulness and attentiveness.
