Though this is a business Hotel but we stayed for a short vacations. We were group of 3 couples. The rooms are good with all average amenities. But the disappointment is they gave twin bed rooms instead of Double bed(KING/QUEEN). And they did not bother to change the room. We some how managed 3 nights there only.

Complementary breakfast was good.

The sea food restaurant Sana-di-ge is fabulous. value for money... Did not try the other restaurant Kabab Studio. But that also seems to be good, its famous for its buffet lunch and dinner in that locality.

Overall experience was good over there.

The staff were very friendly, but the concept of a clean room escapes the Goldfinch. Cleanliness should be a priority for any hotel, regardless of the number of stars. This goes a long way, beyond decor, views and most other things. The most alarming aspects were the variety of odours from the rooms, as well as the dust and grime that was behind every nook and cranny. If its a clean room you're after, don't stay here.

This hotel claims to be the finest boutique hotel in Mangalore. Upon check in we appreciated the fresh papaya juice and the escort to our room - that is where it stopped. The room stank of smoke despite asking for a non smoking room. We then requested a room change and was told that the hotel was at 100 percent occupancy - after saying we would pay more for a room that did not smell we were provided with a suite and 2.5 times the price. this room smelt even worse of smoke and we were told it was a non smoking room despite there being an ashtray and matches on the table!! At least state that all rooms are smoking - dont try to say its not and then have housekeeping come in and spray a can of air freshner around. In addition the bathroom tub plug didnt work and the pillows were the sizes of cushions. After providing the feedback upon checking out the lady at the front desk simply said "i'm sorry" where as if you were serious about my feedback you would be writing notes. WIll not be staying here again.

Room Tip: Ask for non smoking and visit room before you check in

Hotel Goldfinch was a great stay. The Hotel staff ensured a comfortable, prompt & relaxing stay. The check in & out procedures were completed with ease without any delay or fuss. The room service was prompt & courteous even at late night. The rooms are clean & well kept. The decor is contemporary & apt. Overall the stay was comfortable & delightful. Goldfinch would definitely be my choice next time i come to Mangalore.

New hotel in Mangalore so I decided to try it out. Good food at their restaurants. Decent rooms, bathrooms could be cleaner. Receptionists could be a bit more sharper. I arrived at 10pm from a long journey and they did not have a room for me which was very frustrating Lots of noise from the roadside and the hotel corridors (phones ring all the time). Quality of sleep not great....Would not stay here again and stick to the Taj property
