“Wonderfully place with wonderful staff”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIP's and We can't thank everyone enough for making our 2 weeks so special. We stayed on the first floor with a view of the road and the bar opposite which can be a bit noisy but as we don't go to bed before 11pm it was not a problem for us. The restaurant in front has in our opinion the best food in Goa and you must try the Sunday Roast even though you are in India

Room Tip: Talk to the manager about your needs and they will help

Small Guest House with only nine rooms which are basic but clean, some of the fittings have seen better days. staff are helpful and when I informed them of a problem that I had with a light it was immediately replaced.

The rooms are small but they all have balconies which gives you some needed outside space. The AC are the split type so not very loud.

There is a restaurant on the grounds and we had diner there many time but because of it the Guest House can appear very busy in the evening.

Overall I wrote this because I saw the pictures that had been sent by other and that was not my experience

Room Tip: Front first floor rooms are best but can be noisy if you go to bed early

This has to be the worst place we have ever stayed in. We arrived at 5 in the the morning there was nobody there to let us in we had to wait outside until someone came at 8 o'clock to open up, only to be told our room was'nt ready until 10, we did tell them our arrival time but obviously it did'nt matter to them. When we were shown to our room the first thing we saw was the dirtiest pillow sticking out of the pillow case I have ever seen, we got them to change it but the next one was'nt much better you just could'nt put your head on that. We started to unpack and have a look round the room, it was filthy could never have been cleaned from them opening up at the start of the season, the shower and the toilet were the same. There were wire's hanging out of the plug's that were unsafe. Came to have a shower and the water just trickled out and was'nt even hot, so you could'nt even get a descent wash, the air con stayed on for about 10 min's then switched off. We approached the manager about these issue's but clearly was'nt interested. I booked this accommadation through the owner in the UK a very well spoken guy from London, he assured me this place was clean as he had learned from past mistake's, what a joke!. I asked the manager to get intouch with him so we could try and get something resolved but just kept saying he's not answering his phone, I also tried but could'nt get him to answer. We stayed 2 night's and that was enough. I would'nt recommend this place to anyone it is the pit's. I now know why he want's your money paid up before your holiday.

We have been going to Goa for 20 years, have stayed in a variety of lodgings at varying prices. The cost of the room was £15 a night, however for the uninitiated, it is possible to get basic but CLEAN accommodation for £10 a night or even less, when not busy.

The issues were with the general cleanliness of the room, the safety of the Fridge power unit mounted on top of the fridge and the intermittent water flow and temperature of the shower.

Not so good when the toilet seats at the beach shacks are cleaner than the one in your room. And as with all Goan holidays, there is the chance that at some point you will be on your knees praying to the porcelain, well, it ain’t good (see photos)

The live power plug at the back of the fridge power unit was unable to be fixed in permanently, as 3 of the 4 retaining clips were broken. We chose to unplug the fridge for safety’s sake.

With regard the shower, we only managed 2 satisfactory uninterrupted showers in 14 days, and this we think was because they were taken before 5.00pm ???

What I find frustrating is that the toilet seat and fridge could be resolved without costing a lot of money. There was talk of getting TV’s for next year…although soft mattresses and solar powered hot water have been on the ‘list’ for a while. Personally I would sooner forgo the TV for a new clean toilet seat. You will hear that a room is only for getting your head down at night, however there is a little bit more to it than that.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere.
