Booked 3 rooms for over xmas and new year, was told we would be in the annexe part of the Whitehouse.We were told we could pay rupees or card, upon arrival we were told no card payments would be accepted , Dina the very rude and aggresive landlady told us we would have to go and find over 2000 worth of rupees to pay her bill, as she wasnt prepared to bay the tax on card payments, given the current money situation in India we were faced with an impossible task, after a few days we approached her and explained that unless she could take either card or Sterling as payment, we would unfortunately have to move out to alternative accomodation, at this point she began screaming and shouting at me, pointing her finger in my face ,lunging towards me as if she were going to attack me, it was very upsetting. Eventually she relented and allowed 2 rooms to be paid in Sterling and 1 room to be paid by card, via the jewellers shop opposite. The rooms for 10 days over xmas and new yr worked out at 49.50 per room per night, the remaining 11 days worked out at 40 per room per night, extremely over priced, very basic, very noisy, very dirty , stained smelly, bed linen hardly any hot water and an extremely rude landlady to boot. This person should not be dealing with the general public, she is a liability to the family business. We are aware that we aren't the only customers she has been aggresive towards, they also through pure greed are damaging their business, they charged 1800rps for an airport pick up for 3 people, the most you should ever pay to calangute is 1200 and that includes a tip.
The room rate for A/c was 2000/- per night however there wasnt any soap, paste etc kept in the bathroom. one gone inside the room, no communication with the owner. In this age world there is CRT TV in room where hardly any channel.. The room are clean, its good to stay, very near to beach however for the prize which we pay there is hardly anything we get except for the room..
Due to a bad start of our holiday we decided to move ..we came across , The White House unfortunately they were fully booked but lucky for us they own a luxury apartment just around the corner . We were so happy it was empty and couldn't wait to move in and enjoy our holiday . The service was excellent the place was cleaned every day sheets and towels every other day .The owners Alex & Dina are two of the nicest people you can meet they help you with anything you need . The only downside of the holiday is we had to come home ... There are plenty of places to eat and drink whether you stay in the White House or the apartment . The White House is minutes from the beach , the apartment is roughly 7/8 mins away depending on how quick you walk . THANKYOU Alex & Dina for a fantastic holiday .
The ambience is awesome. Right on the road in happening area, very close to the beach. Daily room service which makes the stay perfect. Hospitality and cleanliness is the best.. Best place to stay for couples and family as well !! Owners Mr and Mrs Alex were very helpful and very humble making our stay memorable !!!!
As others have written the accomodation was clean, the room large and comfortable , right on the beach and the owners were very friendly.
The 3 balconies with one facing the beach were the icing on the cake.
The only mishit was absence of morning bed tea as theirs no attached resturant but thats just a small inconvenience compared to the pluses.
