Room Quality: 4/5
Service Quality: 4/5
Dining Quality: 3/5
We drove down from Udupi to Goa .Roads were in horrible condition from Udupi to Honnavar.From Honnavar to Karwar roads were average. But from Karwar to Goa, u will enjoy the ride .The hotel is located in NH17(panvel highway).As highway is two lane,u will have to pass the hotel and take U-turn to reach the hotel.If you are driving from Mumbai then hotel is on your left hand side
The Hotel has no covered parking and you got to park the vehicle in street lane. The security and receptionist were kind enough to allow me park in the underground parking area as it had one parking slot free. Underground parking area is only for Hotel Orion staff, owner and sight seeing trip vehicles.
We felt the hotel is in apt location to reach calangute,aguda,vagator,panjim,old goa church,casino,dona paula and reis magos fort. But its quite far from vasco,colva and arambol.
Dominos pizza,café day,hospital,hall mark,bakery,veg restaurant, O coquiera goan restaurant(known for arrest of Charles sobharaj),BP petrol pump,ATMs,super market were close by to the hotel
The Front desk:
The staff was reasonably helpful.
The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. No wifi available. Coffee maker and security locker was available in room. No iron box. complimentary water and sachet for tea/coffee were provided and refilled at any time. The linen was clean, air conditioner was running and taps and flush were working. The toilet and shower area was clean.24hrs hot water available.
Food & Room Service:
We had only complimentary buffet breakfast from the hotel. Timings were 7~10 am. Food was average. Breakfast menu could be improved more by adding cereals, biscuits and juice.
