Stayed here during the long weekend of the Papal Visit to the Philippines last January 2015 with my family. We had previously stayed in The Manor last year where we had such a great time. It was full already so we opted to book next door in Forest Lodge. The rates were almost the same so for that, we agreed to book here. Unfortunately the hotel is nothing like the Manor, except for its room size and shared parking area at the back. For 5,000 a night, it was a spartan version of the Manor. They had coffee and tea making device but no coffee or tea to use. They don't offer room service so if you are hungry, you had to go down to order. The bathroom for me was the kind where you would have to wear slippers while in the shower as it looked dirty. I cut my nails in the bathroom one night and the next day, after they had cleaned my room, I was disgusted to see that my nails were still there but they changed the towels etc. which just meant they don't clean the bathroom that thorough. Inconsistency in policies were evident when I got thin slippers in my room together with a bathrobe, and the other rooms didn't have any and were being charged 55pesos for slippers. They explained that the guest rooms only had bath towels and that it didn't come with face towels that I asked for. No breakfast is included in the rates paid so that was another source of disappointment. The employees were all friendly and helpful and professional but without a GM who leads the crew to render extraordinary service to cater to the guests needs, it will always remain a mediocre hotel. Unless you have to, don't bother staying here. Too expensive for what the hotel actually offers. The location isn't enough to justify the value for money you don't get.

CJH is the best location in Baguio and Forest Lodge is a great and better-priced alternative to the often fully-booked the Manor.

The rooms are spacious and beds are comfy! My only tip is to bring your own towels (they have pretty old ratty ones).

Ambiance was amazing! It gives you the perfect homey-romantic ambience... Food was great and reasonably priced. Service was also ok. Perfect place for a romantic dinner :)

Bigger rooms, cheaper rooms, bigger rooms! Breakfast not a buffet so you can opt to eat outside. Location inside Camp John Hay is ideal for walking and jogging. Lobby is huge and cozy and bigger rooms!!!

Stayed in Baguio for 4 days and spent our first night here and the following nights at The Manor (both inside Camp John Hay). The rooms here are QUITE bigger than the rooms in The Manor but cheaper, around 3,700 per night only while 9k+ in The Manor (rooms look exactly the same though). I think The Manor costs more because of their garden view and breakfast buffet. Forest lodge has a better lobby or lounge area for me though, it's bigger and has more couches to sit. Manor's a bit crowded especially the lounge area.

Breakfast here wasn't that good though, you'll only get to choose one from their buffet, (corned beef, chicken adobo or garlic longganisa). So if you'll stay here, just eat breakfast somewhere else but if you're after the relaxation, it's just the same or even better than The Manor since they have bigger rooms.

I'm a big fan of cabin-type of hotels, so Forest Lodge for me doesn't disappoint. Just like Manor, it does represent the Baguio vibe. The beds are comfy, the comfort rooms are clean and beautiful. The in-house restaurant, The Twist, offers surprisingly delicious food with affordable prices. It has an Asian vibe and they have big servings. Spot on place if you want to take a vacation in Baguio. :)

Great location in John Hay next to The Manor and it is affordable. P4500 a night in a superior room good for 3 people, add P600 for an extra person. The rooms are nice but I recommend you bring your own towels. The restaurant is good and I like their cheesecake. My favorite place is the lobby/lodge area. There are two rocking chairs near he windows at the right side. Relaxing view. Chill. Good alternative to The Manor.

Located in Camp John Hay Baguio City. Forest Lodge is just beside manor hotel and walking distance from the mile-hi center.

We stayed here for 3 days 2 nights. We got the most affordable room and to our surprise it was very spacious and elegant. It had 2 twin beds, a dressing area and very nice bathroom. No airconditioning but there is a ceiling fan you can use. Went there around January so it was very cold :)

The staff were very courteous, has secure parking area. Only down side is that it has no room wifi, you have to go to the lobby for the wifi. Other than that everything is GREAT!

Definitely an alternative to the manor and those who want to enjoy john hay without hurting your wallet.
