The rooms are clean, as well as bathrooms and hallways. The availability of water dispenser with coffee/tea (for sale) on every floor is a plus!

          The place is very convenient, the room was well maintained and of course the staff are all friendly they will greet you always with their genuine and sincere smile. If you have any questions about whereabouts and what just ask “ate” from the reception and she will help you. They have available bike as well that you can rent so you can feel the Batanes vibe more specially during late afternoon. I use it when i go to the famous lighthouse for chasing sunset which is just near the place. Kudos Nathaniel’s Lodge. Until next time!

          Overall, I had a great stay at Nathaniel's Lodge. Breakfast was great while the staff were warm, accommodating, and were willing to lend the assistance they could. The location, too, was great as it was just along the heart of Basco. As for the facilities, please do fix the faucet in the bathroom as we all strive to conserve water and save the environment. Dios mamajes! 😊❤️

          Love the place! Very accommodating staff. They even let us check in earlier at no additional cost, because they knew we were coming in early! Highly recommended!

          Exceeds my expectation”

          Stayed for 6 nights and didnt regret it. Their logo is true.Its your happy nest in Batanes.It feels home away from home.Staff are very polite and accomodating.I wanted to stay for another night becoz i missed to booked for my extension stay but unfortunately they are fully booked might be because of their good review.I booked for other accomodation with 4 star and has compare Nathaniel Lodge.I can say Nathaniel is much better. If still continue with their current service and price I think this Lodge will be sought after accomodation in Batanes. Pros: Decent room.Very Polite and accomdating staff.Breakfast is OK.Location is good. Cons:Only serve breakfast.Saw some ants and 2 cokraches which is normal for a not 4 to 5 star accomodation Overall I will highly recommend this lodge in Batanes will definitely comeback if have chance. Travelling is my hobby and have stayed to different hotel worldwide. I decided to help other by giving an honest review.

          We stayed here on july 20-24, originally 19-23 but our flight was cancelled due to bad weather. I ask the staff if we can adjust my booking with no charge, and they accepted it! The staff were so kind to us they smiled everytime we saw each other. The place is so nice and clean but my most favorite is the roof top! Every night we sit there to see the magical sky full of stars. Hopefully to come back in the future and will book in Nathaniels Lodge again, dios mamajes!

          Hello Paolo, We're glad you pushed thru with your Batanes vacation despite the cancelled flight. Weather in Batanes can be erratic but we hope that it didn't spoil your trip and tours. Thank you for noticing our rooftop too, we know that there's still a lot to work on but even other tourists tell us that it gives unparalleled view of the night sky. Please please do come back if you need a break in the city or just wanted to go stargazing. Kind regards, Nathaniel's Lodge
