On 24 December 2010 we arrived for the first time at the Hotel New Castle. My wife (Sahida) and I shared a deluxe room and our friends (Krish, Denise & Colleen) were allocated the hotel's single Suite. The tariffs were very realistic and this hotel offered value for money right up to our check out date on 30 December 2010. Our initial bookings were done via email and a very pleasant and extremely helpful lady , Miss Zerin Java, assisted us in securing our bookings. The front desk staff, Mr Godfrey and Mr Pawar, offered assistance upon request. The hotel staff , especially a Mr John, were of great help. This hotel boasts one of the busiest restaurants, ONLY PARATHAS, that we have seen. A sign of good food is when locals queue for tables during lunch and dinner. Another cosy, restaurant/bar is the BANANA LOUNGE. All in all - a super hotel. We look forward to spending December 2011 at the Hotel New Castle.
