4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

This is a wonderfully located hotel that is made special by the warmth of the owners.

Pros:
Simple and clean rooms. All the same size. Some are double beds, whereas some have twin beds.
Location at the junction of Holiday street and the beach road, yet quite peaceful.
Just a short walk away from the beach and shacks. Between calangute and candolim.
Laundry service that is reasonable.
Staff very courteous, especially the owners, Stanley and his wife.
Food decent in the restaurant. The complementary breakfast was simple but perfect.
Wonderful manicured grounds.

Cons:
No room service. This is to prevent ants in the room. Still, would have been nice to have tea on our balcony.
The pool though cleaned regularly, seemed a bit murky. Probably due to the trees and plants around. Did not stop me from getting in multiple times though.
Cane bed does creak a lot which can be disturbing at night if you tend to toss and turn a bit.

Overall, definitely a place I would visit again, especially during the season. During the offseason the area does tend to quiet down, and the beach shacks in that area are also closed. However if you want the peace, then it's perfect.
Thanks to Stanley and his Wife for a wonderful week at the Kingstork.

Stayed April 2012, traveled as a couple

Just back form a 16 night stay at the Kingstork and can not fault it beach and shops on your doorstep. Stanley and Ruena are fantastic hosts and nothing is to much trouble for them and they have a hard working staff team who are always ready to oblige.Rooms cleaned daily and all rooms have a safe for any one who wants peace of mind. If you are unlucky and cant get a room ( as you have to book early ) You shoud still go and try their restaurant ran by Raymond who is an excelent chef. I have already booked for next January 2013 and have started to count the days. Once again big thanks to Stanley and Ruena see you next year.

My wife and I have stayed at the Kingstork many times, however this time Stanley and Ruena really made our stay a memorable one. We took over 8 rooms for our friends and family and the hotel allowed us to carry out a wedding ceremony in their grounds. The owners and all the staff worked their socks off to make sure that everything went without a hitch and we all had such a fantastic day, once again Stanley and Ruena, many many thanks to you and all your staff for a fantastic 18 day holiday. I can go on and on about the Kingstork but when you read all the other reviews, they all say the same and give it a glowing reference, if you have stayed in other hotels in Goa, which we did prior to finding the Kingstork you know exactly what i mean. I can't wait for my next stay in December.

This was my 3rd visit to kingstork, would never stay anywhere else.Rooms perfect with a safe for peace of mind ,good food in the restraurant . location for anyone considering kingstork is also perfect. away from the mayhem of calangute but plenty of restaurants and shops on your doorstep.Also the beach is only steps away.
warning please do not buy cigarette lighters off the beach as these are not safe and can explode burning you or . your hotel room .As i found out .So sorry again Stanley.
stanley and Rowena lovely people .See you again next year.

Room Tip: If the pool is your thing ask for a poolside room.You wont be dissapointed

I all so have stayed at this fab establishment every thing positive has been said about Kingstork all I can say don't tell anyone because you won't get in. The boss Stanley and his wife should be very proud of the lovely Kingstork. Just going to try and book for next season fingers crossed .

We stayed at Kingstork for the first time although we have visited Goa many times staying normally in Candolim, this Guesthouse was by far the best we have stayed in, we arrived mid afternoon and we were on the top floor next to our friends who travelled with us which we had requested, when we entered the rooms we were impressed by the cleanliness and the facilities all clean and very welcoming. It is only 2 minutes walk from the beach and numerous bars in Holiday Street. The staff were first class and were very helpful, Raj in the restaurant deserves a mention for his politeness but as i say all the staff were brilliant. Stanley and his wife were very friendly and always had time to talk to you and answer any questions. The food in the restaurant was again first class and as good as meal that i have tasted in Goa.
We have already booked for a return next year and would recommend anyone staying here.

Room Tip: We think that the top floor was best as this has recently been built and you can sit on your balcony...
