“Friendly place”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

A friendly little guest house tucked away in the back streets of calangute . Clean rooms fair choice of menu for meals fairly priced. Helpful staff always willing to please. A good ten mins walk to beach , close to bars and shops. lots of regulars that come back year after year..Good value for money.

Room Tip: Quiet area all rooms overlook street

We have just come back from staying at the Castle House for 2 weeks and we both agree what a lovely time we had there. The staff were great, friendly and very helpful with special thanks to Surwen (apologies if I have spelt his name wrong). Enjoyed the breakfast especially the fried eggs and tomatoes. Food was great and the drinks were good value.
Although this place is small its very easy going, nothing too much trouble. When it got too hot we spent time in the shade talking to other guests. Special thanks to Sharon, Kevin and Natalie plus Margaret and Pete who made our holiday even more enjoyable.
Rooms are basic but clean with fresh linen and towels everyday.

We fell in love with E T a brilliiant dog who followed us every day on our walks.

Would we recomend this hotel yes its close to the beach and main area for shopping and dining.

Just got back from a great two week stay. Very friendly welcome/check in. The room was basic, I admit my first impressions I thought maybe a bit too basic but I soon realised the room had everything we needed including a fridge to keep our water cold.I also liked that the bathroom was more of a wet room so was a lot easier to deal with, when we brought half of the sand from the beach back with us in our swimwear! All staff are extremely friendly and made our stay feel like home. Bar/Restaurant has a great variety of food and drinks/food are all very reasonably priced. Hotel location is great, only a 10min walk from the beach a few minutes walk from the main road so pool days feel more remote. Would I stay at the Castle House again? Definitely. Tip: Safes are free to use but they are lockers in reception not in the room and you need your own padlock. Supermarket near by sells them so not a problem but useful to know in advance to bring your own. Thanks for a lovely time Castle House :-)

This was my experience with Castle House and I must say that they did not annoy me at all. i had visited this Hotel with my 4 Brothers when we were on a bachelors trip to Goa. Nice and Clean Rooms, Excellent room service, and highly recommended to those who travel with Friends. You will enjoy every bit of it. Costs are also low and location is great. Staff and Manager is very Co-operative and helpful . Would surely visit again and advise to all to atleast visit once.

This was our third time to Goa so we know the score now! We brought our friends over for their first trip,so we were a bit nervous. On our arrival we were tired and on first impression felt it was basic but hey ho - go with the flow. After a couple of days we realised how brilliant it was. Previously we had stayed in larger hotels where you have to queue for a mediocre breakfast. At Castle House it's cooked to order every day and served with a smile.

The Tandori nights are fab.

Rooms are basic but everything you need provided. Hot water, good shower, TV and bed was best yet!

Central location for the beach - 10 mins and town - 5 mins. Quiet enough but sometimes barking dogs at night. Can get this wherever you go.

Would we go back again? Yes
Would our friends? Yes
