Oval Era Hotel in Bangued is perhaps the best one in Abra offering cozy comfort, a classy and well designed lobby interior that looks more like a high end house and with a great view of the town of Bangued with the Sleeping Beauty Mountain in the background. It’s where guests of the Local Government unit are booked, from celebrities to high government officials.
Located at Cassamata Hill, at an elevated area amidst trees, it’s partially covered veranda is the perfect place to lounge and dine as you can see the sweeping vista of Bangued town as well as wait for sunsets. It used to be the residence of a Marcos era government official and has been converted into a hotel.
The rooms are spacious, even the ensuite toilet and bath has a large area although hot water is a manual affair: you have to connect it to the outlet. The mattress and pillows are comfortable too. Wifi is only available at the lobby.
The hotel also serves food but curiously, I didn’t see any menu and we don’t know what’s in store for the day until it is served to us. What we had for dinner are usually typical Filipino dishes but cooked good and delicious although I’m not really a big fan of bangus. The mongo was good and so are the fried lumpia that had me eating more.
Oval Era Hotel in Bangued is a good place to stay. I only had one complaint though, there were lots of mosquitoes at the time and I’m not really comfortable staying at the lobby but had to because of the wifi. The staff does spray the hotel premises from time to time or upon request. We just had to keep our hotel door and windows close to prevent these insects from entering.
Thanx to Vice Governor Chari Bersamin for inviting me to witness the Abrenian Kawayan Festival on the occasion of the 98th Foundation Day of Abra
