Had the worst possible experience at Goldfinch Retreat yesterday.. We had gone for a day outing to Goldfinch Retreat which claims to be a resort but it's more like a Building with a garden and pool! I won't waste a lot of my time but I can point out a few reason which should be sufficient to make a decision!... More

We booked this hotel because it is close to the airport, and we had a middle of the night flight. Our plan was to spend some relaxation time around the pool area (which looks nice in the management's deceptive photos) in the afternoon, have dinner, go to bed early, and then get up for our flight. What a joke this... More

Dear Guest, First and foremost, we would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused during your visit to our hotel. In regard to loungers and comfy chairs in the pool area, we are very sorry for not having replaced in time as it was removed from the pool area due to space constraints just to accommodate the birthday party which...

Yes it is close to the airport and we had a 0700 departure, so that's why we chose to stay here. BUT, our non-smoking room had been smoked in and so that put us off straight away. BUT, the hotel on Saturdays offers a Rp800 ticket for local non-residents to use the pool and to dine, so we couldn't get... More

Dear Guest First and foremost, we would like to apologies for the inconvenience caused during your visit to our hotel.

We had an early morning flight out of Bangalore so it made sense to sleep nearby. This was clean, airy and friendly. The food was decent if not awe inspiring. It is also close enough to the airport that if you had a day time flight you would have some degree of confidence that you could get there without getting... More

First of all, let me tell you, I would have given it 4 stars but I gave 3 only for the reason that it is over priced. The hotel itself is very good with a beautiful pool and yummy food (Banjara restaurant). The staff is friendly and the rooms were excellent. But it is overpriced! I would say a one... More

Small place. Don't be fooled by '36 acres' Claim, Most of it is a housing project that surrounds the Hotel. Hence The name 'Retreat' & Not 'Resort'. Rooms are Excellent. Powerful Air-conditioning, Good Flooring & Interiors. Beds Very Uncomfortable Coz 2 Beds r Pushed Together Which leaves a Hollow Gap in Between. Hence Bad Sleeping Experience, Especially If U're Travelling... More

I needed to stay overnight on a business trip to catch a connecting flight next morning. Picked up this hotel because of its proximity to Airport which was still good 10 km.
