On this post we will talk about the ROOMS, LANDSCAPED GROUNDS & PLAYGROUND of The Manor at Camp John Hay.
Initially we had a room on the 2nd floor with 2 queen beds which was perfect for 3 adults & a toddler. Can you spot the toddler in this pic?
The problem with this room was that
- The Manor doesn’t have airconditioning (I don’t recommend it unless it’s December – January)
- The windows don’t open wide so we couldn’t cool the room
- It’s on top of the bar/restaurant so it’s quite noisy & hard to sleep when you have a child
It looks nice during the day but the problems come at night. It’s better to have a room far from the restaurant so no noise at night.
UPGRADING TO A ROOM WITH A BALCONY
So the next day we decided to upgrade & pay more for a room with a balcony. We asked that it be facing away from the restaurant so it’s quiet at night. It was lovely coz we could open the doors wide & cooled the room fast for deep, comfortable sleep!
It even had a cute little kitchenette by the entrance.
Very convenient if you have a baby or toddler that’s still drinking milk.
It also had a dresser in between 2 separate doors for the shower & the toilet. Definitely more convenient if you are here as a family. Unlike if you had 1 bathroom door for both the shower & toilet. Only one person can use that at a time.
So if you are a family staying at The Manor at Camp John I recommend getting a Balcony room with 2 queen beds & a kitchenette. Make sure it’s not near & facing away from the bar/restaurant to have a quiet night’s sleep.
THE MANOR AT CAMP JOHN HAY GROUNDS
This is really the reason why we stayed in The Manor. The grounds are just breathtaking!
And there is a wonderful view! To go out to the central garden, we went through the restaurant. I love the covered outdoor area! It’s where we have our breakfast buffet every morning.
The view from here is breathtaking.
It’s nice to explore this area. It feels like your own serene secret garden.
The landscaped pond with fish was also super interesting for DiploBaby.
The head gardener is German if I’m not mistaken. If there is anything I learned while living in Germany for 2.5 years is the Germans love their flowers & gardens.
Having a young child, it’s so nice to have a playground like this on hotel grounds. DiploBaby had a lot of fun.
Thankfully it was just me who couldn’t sleep well from the band music. Because of all the walking, running around & playing DiploBaby was able to sleep.
UP NEXT: We took DiploBaby Horseback riding in Camp John Hay then decided to just eat at The Manor’s restaurant Le Chef for dinner to keep it simple & relaxed after the tiring drive from Manila
