The Bourke is a chic hideaway in the heart of Davao City, nestled behind a beautiful pre-war stone structure of classic Philippine design. Since its opening, guests have enjoyed the timeless charm and simplicity of the renovated room boutique hotel, attracted by its seamless service and seclusion from the urban bustle.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Yes the words in the title were carefully chosen since each one of them was truly earned. Let me walk you through my first impressions because they do matter. You're transported to a whole new world as soon as you enter the gates. Think Europe and even if you haven't been you'd sense it. Glitzy restaurants all along the courtyard like a thoughtfully appointed lady :-). The rooms are expansive by any standards. Furnishings are chique, furniture is cosy, beds are large, the television is a mammoth (60") Sony. Verdant plants in wicker baskets, ceramic soap and shampoo dispensers, slip proof shower flooring and a large showerhead. The colour tones in the room complement the dark woodwork given it a very welcoming and earthy feel and the air conditioners work!!!Service is incredible and they're at your door within 1.5 minutes and there's absolutely nothing they won't do. If you ever visit Davao, The Bourke hotel is the only hotel you should ever consider. I've intentionally not added reviews of their restaurants because I want you to discover the treasures:-)

The Bourke hotel is a bit of an island in a city I'd not spend a ton of time in. What truly makes this hotel stand out is the ownership and the staff. There is nothing they won't do to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. From arranging a driver for a day trip, to getting laundry done, to creating space at the number 1 restaurant in Davao for Valentine's day Patrick and his staff went out of their way to make a difference.

My room was sizable, the desk functional, the bed comfortable. Upgrades could be made to the bathroom including hot water for shaving (it was good enough in the shower but nonexistant in the sink.)

I didn't watch tv but the one on the wall was sizable enough. Breakfast was tasty and flat whites were included in the price!

All in all a very comfortable, worthwhile experience. If you're looking to avoid the chains and support a more local environment, this is a great option and at a very reasonable price.

I have been visiting my father in Davao for the past 3 years. This has been at the start, a harrowing experience; changing hotels 2-3 times a day until I came across The Bourke. I have been to the RedDoorz, the Mandaya's, and Marco Polo's of Davao and nothing compares to the service, comfort and convenience of The Bourke. It is a relatively small property, so no rooftop pool here, however what I found here is consistency, courtesy and comfort. The rooms are immaculately clean and unique. The staff accommodating and genuinely friendly. The F&B options are exceptional for breakfast, lunch or dinner (not your typical hotel restaurants). This however comes at a price - The Bourke is more pricey than the majority of the comp set. But I believe it is worth it. I've paid slightly less staying at Mandaya/Apo View, and more staying at Marco Polo, and without a doubt The Bourke was the best experience for the money.

I have heard lots of good things about Bondi and Bourke restaurant but living in Davao do not know anyone who has stayed at the Bourke Hotel, same owner as the restaurant.

To break up the monotony of COVID we booked a room for one night at The Bourke Hotel so as to get away within in our city.

Greeted by a very contemporary reception was efficient front desk. A James Bond style elevator took us to our floor and we were pleasantly surprised with the room as well as amenities. Clean, modern, fresh feeling and felt

Amazing little boutique hotel with ultra friendly staff and a ridiculously good breakfast. Best hotel I have stayed in Davao. The rooms are very modern cosy and clean. We stayed in both rooms , a suite which had a small kitchenette and a extra bedroom and a nice balcony. Also a single room we stayed in for a night and both rooms are great. Netflix available in both rooms which is a nice touch

A hidden gem. The Bourke is clean and provides everything that a 5 star hotel would. Quality of Bed sheets, pillows and towels were not scrimped on.
Best part of Bourke is the food!
Service is likewise top notch.

Best value for the money.

This boutique hotel in Davao is very with it. Has all you could possibly want whether on business or pleasure. Friendly staff in all areas who make you feel relaxed and part of the family. Patrick and his staff have the perfect combination of excellent food and amenities. The only hotel I stay when in Davao. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you to the staff of The Bourke for making our birthday extra special. Everything was wonderful. They make you feel right at home. Also, we highly recommend the food at Bramble. Super SARAP!!! We wish we could've sampled everything on the menu before we left. Sulit!
