“Excellent hotel! Non beach location right on river makes it unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

This hotel from the Casa group is located right on the river (very peaceful and quiet), tucked away in a small lane. The swimming pool is good and there is a bar area from which you can gaze on the river. Rooms are spacious and have large balconies to lounge around.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2011

We stayed at the Casa Britona off-season, and had this wonderful place to ourselves. The room was very spacious, with room for a large double bed and comfortable armchairs, although the electrics were a bit basic. Looking out over a quiet backwater, we could laze all day by the pool under the trees, or go into nearby Panjim by local bus or taxi. The hotel has some basic bikes that it can lend for evening rides around the countryside. Food was pretty good, but one can just as easily go into Panjim. The staff were uniformly helpful and pleasant.

We are so glad we decided to spend our honeymoon in casa britona.
It is truly a hidden gem of goa.

The ambiance is so serene and peaceful.
you could stay in the hotel all day and never feel the need to step out.

we were treated very well and not only was our room decorated with beautiful flowers but we were also offered a bottle of champagne

The staff and the cook is simply brilliant and they will do whatever you ask for. Everything is bought according to your order, made and served fresh. Every meal was memorable.

My husband was down with fever so they prepared special food us,provided medicines and even called a doctor. Due to the fever we could not go out on the bike we had hired, so the owner was kind enough to give her car and driver to us to go and explore goa.

The owner of the place is a very generous lady with good taste and class.
She has kept the originality of the Portuguese mansion and yet made it contemporary and comfortable. Her pet dog (coco) is simple adorable. we miss him the most.
we never felt that we were staying at an alien place. we felt at home.

Thank u casa britona for a perfect honeymoon.

Now our mission is to stay at all the Casa hotels on goa :)

We stayed in Casa Britona for 3 nights for our honey moonand we absolutely loved it. It is a place tucked away in a quiet idillic village. The decor of the hotel reminded us we were back in time in some maharaja time period. It is truly a charming place. We had a balcony, living room, en suite and beautiful bedroom, all overlooking the river side. We had a joke amongst ourselves calling the staff our mum because they were very caring and took care of our every need. The taxi service was great as well as the driver knew all the good places to take us to. Most of all, the Manager Mr Lenny was accomdating and flexible. The whole experience just made our honeymoon an excellent experience. We would recommend Casa Britona to everyone, especially honeymooners.

Thank you to the staff and management of Casa Britona for making our experience great. We look forward to our next visit.

We came here to unwind after 10 days of hectic charging around and staying in one of the busy resort areas (Baga). The change was wonderful - a converted 300 year-old customs warehouse redone with style - large rooms well appointed with comforts. Excellent bathroom facilities, ceiling fans and air con. There are 10 rooms potentially but only a few were occupied during our stay. The staff were solicitous and sensitive, really concerned to serve their guests with care. The Chef Roshan opened our eyes to some wonderful tastes and food combinations. We could sit by the pool looking over the tributaries of the Mandovi river with 4 different types of kingfisher and several types of egret and heron busily fishing these richly stocked waters. We rode bicycles out around the paddyfields and walked the nearby roads. Perhaps the one adverse comment is the sometimes noisy dogs that barked intermittently in the night. We strongly recommend this restful hotel. Peter & Bridget Friedmann

Ethnic paradise

We went to Casa Britona in October 2009 (not the peak season in Goa). It was in a village and we did not expect this boutique hotel there!! We entered with apprehension but once we entered…the place was breathtaking from the inside!!

The rooms are spacious with very tasteful old Portuguese furniture and décor. The setting is blissful and super romantic. The rooms are set around a small swimming pool which has a gazebo for relaxation.

There two main issues: a) this place is not close to the beach and 2) if you have very young and energetic children then swimming pool right in the middle of the property could be a hazard.

We are going to Goa in December with my sibling and their families and with ah heavy heart we chose not to go to any of the Casa Boutique Hotels (Casa Britona is one of the properties..there are others) as there are 4 kids under the age of 6!

We highly recommend this place, if you are not going with many young kids.

casa britona is oneof the few hotels that can in word be defined as wow !!!. i arrived for a 12 day stay on 21 of dec but ended up staying till 18 th of jan. kind courtesy the ambience and the marvellous decor and an extremlly hospitable host (the owner harself!!!). she took out time to guide me to the best possible places in goa and fine tuned even my "restaurants to be visited itenerary". i am extremelly thankful for the time and effort she took out !!!. keep the good work going shiela dhody !!!.

on the location front the hotel is extremelly well located and central, with north and the action packed nights just 10 minutes drive, panjim is a stone throw away, north beaches are about 1/2 hour drive and south is about 45 minutes drive. the hotel provides good a/c cars with knowledgeable drivers to take you to the best places from shortest cuts.

the decor and the interiors are classisally portugese and it gives a feeling of old world charm, the furniture again is a selected and handpicked old pieces. the colors and scapes of the walls are extremelly interesting and (as i was informed by the owner) done by famous artist PRADEEP NAIR (KUDOS FOR THAT)

OVERALL THE PLACE IS EXCELLENT VALUE FORMONEY AND A MUST TAKE EXPERIENCE WHILE IN GOA !!!
CHEERS !!!
