The staff (especially Abhijit!) was super friendly, helpful and kind. However, unfortunately that was about the only thing that stood out for us; as well as the perfect location. Padnem beach is only a 10 minute walk, and we loved this laid back beach! We rented a scooter for 4 days, which is possible in this area as it is very quiet and easy on the roads compared to North Goa.
Unfortunately I slept horribly in this room; the bed was very hard and uncomfortable and too small for us (I was together with my brother on this holiday). Also the room is not dark at night, many small windows lighten up the room. Lastly, there was much noise from other hotel guests and dogs barking all night.
Perhaps the contrast between this hotel and the hotel we stayed at the previous week, was too large - as the price didn't differ that much, and the quality was significantly higher at the other hotel (Hacienda de Goa in Anjuna). But this was quite a letdown.
The breakfast is free, you can get some eggs which is nice, but we really didn't like the other food they offered. Luckily there are a lot of good breakfast places around in the area. The wifi is terrible; it disconnects every time you leave the restaurant (which happens to be the only area that the wifi works), so don't expect too much from that.
Also, the shower takes forever to warm up; so you have to keep it running if you want a hot shower for at least 10 minutes; which we didn't like doing because of the water scarcity in India.
Overall, If you're looking for an average hotel with great staff in an excellent location; then this hotel is fine; as long as you don't expect too much comfort inside the rooms.
Excellent price for rooms, in a beautiful setting just back off the road so very quiet. The guest house is very clean, with a brilliant pool for days you don't fancy the sand. Food is cooked fresh and very tasty, as well as the drinks! Best thing is the staff, really helpful, and really make you feel a home away from home. Definitely recommend if staying in goa, between two beautiful beaches and easy access to beaches a littleness further down road. I will be back! Thank you guys!
Preety close to the beach..Little difficult to find on maps..very quiet and decent clean... ok breakfast ..overall a average experience.take a bike to roam around near by places.
Good facilities overall..but cud do better .
If one has to have a relaxed holiday in Goa, must go to CASTLE HOUSE at South Goa and spend holidays!...Excellent hospitality, rooms are great! House Keeping does an excellent job every day! Food is also great with varied buffet Breakfast. We have got all types of assistance from the Hotel Manager Mr. Abhijit Emmanuel and also from all the crews working there.....EACH AND EVERYONE! So to say, even after arriving each day to hotel,people used to come running to see if we were carrying anything heavy and help us out with it!....I would Personally go and spend my holidays at Castle House and recommend all my relatives and friends to do so!!
An excellent hotel in South Goa that provides you great hospitality. Mr. Abhijit, the Manager, was too helpful and courteous and guided us throughout our stay. The Hotel provides you great facilities from very good rooms to very good service which we all look forward to. The staff members Ravi, Dipesh, Ajith, Jana and ofcourse my dear Pintu were very helpful, co-operative and well behaved. Food was simply awesome and readily available. Though we didn't spend too much time in the hotel, other than sleeping and eating, but it left a great impression on us. We always felt at home during our stay.
I would certainly choose this hotel for my next visit.
