“perfect stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

has the best breakfast ive had so far. in fact the food available here is all amazing, we barely left after the first day as the food was so nice and cheap! a great swimming pool you can sit and relax by and the rooms are spacious, clean and have a TV for those rainy days. great value for money and the staff are so friendly and nice. the owner let us check in earlier then specified, and went above and beyond and offered us a free breakfast there and then! that night he drank with us and we were shocked at how he was on first name basis with almost everyone there. such a nice guy and it dosnt stop there, every staff member was incredibly nice and friendly.
a perfect stay, perfect people and perfect food! highly recommend it.

This was our first time in Goa and we are really pleased with our choice of stay here. This hotel has absolutely great staff- they were so very friendly and helpful. Great location near some very nice beaches and bars. The food and atmosphere at the hotel bar was awesome; both Indian and Western! Rooms were clean with good AC and decent beds. Overall, great value for money. We had such a great time here, we will be coming back again! Thanks. James.

Clean rooms, Smiley faces, Excellent service. We stayed for 3 nights and we felt it very short. My toddler loved the place, the swimming pool, Snowy(the cat).

Food was excellent. We sticked with regular menu. Complimentary breakfast was awesome.

Dev the owner of the property stays in the same hotel with his wife and daughter. His only focus is to keep the guesta happy and make sure they have a pleasent stay. You would see him hanging at the Bar in the evenings and keep the guests entertained and collect their Feedback.

To mention few staff names: Satya from the Bar is very friendly and he called my 3 year old son "Pasta" as we ordered it on the first day for him.

Samiksha from front desk is always smiling and she helped us with the Taxi. Carlos the taxi driver was very friendly and he tried to show us everyplace he could in the time we had.

Tips: first floor and above rooms with pool view, taxi service from hotel

Thanks,
Raj

Castle house was all that it claimed to be, not sure why a few are so thwarted by this place. A great budget hotel with admirable amenities very close to Calangute beach loved their room which was spotless (has a tv, a fridge, 24 hours hot water, a balcony and an awesomely soft bed and pillow :) ). The food and drinks are sensibly charged and the service was simply remarkable since I was in Goa I preferred to get out of the room and eat than call for room service (the comfort of the room simply makes u lazy). The swimming pool is clean and relaxing just the right dept; it also had a pool table where I had some great wins and great losses with my girlfriend. Every morning we were greeted with a lovely smile by all the staff which set the tone for our day. I agree electricity is a problem during rains but that is not the hotel problem but an overall issue in Goa thank you Dev for being kind enough to start the generators each time that happened.
Overall the best budget hotel I have stayed in till date. Dev cheers to you and the staff for making our holiday memorable and the last day room extension is something I will never forget. DEFINITELY COMING BACK!!!!

Very pleasant hotel to stay at. Good value for your money!

Nice big rooms. Clean sheets. Great restaurant. Very safe place to stay at. I am a girl traveling alone and I felt very safe here. People from outside cannot just enter the hotel and in the night the staff sleeps at the entrance to keep unwanted people outside.
