I always used Tripadvisor for reading reviews of hotels but never wrote one myself. This terrible experience I had while staying at this place during our latest trip to Goa is compelling me to write one. The place is shady, we had booked 3rooms in 1st floor and there were 8people in our group. There were only 2bathrooms for 3rooms, that too in one bathroom the flush was broken, no lid/cover on the comod. Now imagine the messy situation when 8people had to get ready by using only 2bathrooms and 1working comod. Basic amenities of the rooms were in terrible situation, the mattress looked like it was bought in 1940's, no dressing table in a room and the AC worked ''occasionally'' during our stay. There is no room service at all, we had requested the care-taker to sweep the rooms and he did that only for a day during our stay. The only good thing about this place is it is 5minutes walking distance from the beach. But beware of the manager he will make sure he extorts whatever money you have. We visited at a time when withdrawing cash is a big issue because of de-monetization. Even at that situation the owner took Rs.10,000/- from us for Grand Island trip which we didnot visit. We had given our word that we would visit Grand Island which would cost 10,000 for 7people, but one of us fell sick so we had to cancel the plan and we had informed him late night. He was adamant and said even though we were not going to the island we will have to pay him the full amount. We requested several times to take 50% of the total amount but he showed us his true ruthless nature and extorted the full amount from us. He even threatened us that if we don't pay the full amount he won't let us leave the Guest house and catch our flight. Now imagine our condition, thousand of kilometers away from home, with a tight budget and only limited cash in hand, this single incident washed away whatever good memories we had savored during the last 4days. So if you want a lousy service, a damped environment and a ruthless manager go stay at Golden Guest House. The beach is a better place to stay than this guest house.
