After Sky Ranch, we headed to Sunrise Holiday Mansion to check in and rest up a bit before dinner. Ate M got a time share deal on Astoria Plaza, which is how we ended up here.
We arrived at night around 8pm and there were only two people at the
hotel, one staff at the front desk and a guard on duty. The hotel
surrounding was dark and so quiet giving it kind of an eerie
feel. The lobby and hallways had somewhat creepy feel as well. It was
like falling into a spine-chilling version of the movie The Shining. :vD

We had two Executive Suites. Each suite feature two interconnecting rooms with a matrimonial bed and two single beds. It was more like a total of four rooms. Each suite can accommodate 4 people. Rooms were spacious but it had seen better days and needed a lot of refurbishments.

Upon arrival, I often check the bed first if it's clean. And shockingly I found a hair on the pillow. I cringed in horror! I think HB or my sister asked the room service to change it.
Not only that, water heaters were not working well, noisy air-conditioning (more like a noise generated by a ship's engine), mosquitoes inside the room and gaping ceiling in the bathroom.
If you want to stay here and you want to get around with public transport, this place is not for you. You need to have your own car. Sunrise Holiday Mansion is middle of nowhere and a bit far from the main road. You need to enter at the Royale Tagaytay Estates and past some residential and townhouses. For us, it was like going through a maze to find this place. Parking is on the street outside the hotel. Nevertheless, rooms were fine for a two-night stay since we were always out, but certainly not a delight.
