Hotel Sea Gull
Ranked #73 of 212 Calangute B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Hotel Sea Gull is a bit of a weird one. It's on Holiday Street which kind of gives away the type of location it's in and whilst it was in the thick of the action we weren't troubled by noise, but I can see how others would be. So noise-wise, it's fine.

Beware of the palpable frustrations of the management caused by boozy rude Russian guests. Beware of the boozy, rude Russian guests! It's a pity as this is a fine budget hotel. If you are expecting Radisson standards you will be disappointed. Sheets are clean, bathroom was clean, balcony was roomy, air con worked perfectly.

For me the facilities were fine and adequate, no more than that. The manager runs a decent stop off spot and there's nice food and the waiting staff were exceptionally nice.

Room Tip: Manage your expectations and this place will serve you very well.

Our stay at the hotel SEA GULL was wonderful. its situated very close to the beach (5 mins walk) so it was very convenient to walk down to the beach at late night hours and even at early mornings. we could enjoy best sunrises and sunsets.
the hotel and rooms are very clean with a very lively restaurant serving great quality Indian and continental food. the hotel also has a swimming pool which is clean and hygienic. we had a pool side view from our room's huge window which was very soothing. when goa was heated up during day we enjoyed in our hotel's pool :)
it was was a great stay at the hotel with all the very warm welcome from the hotel staff
this was our 2nd stay at the hotel. we stayed in the same hotel on our first trip which was 2yrs back and for sure we are gonna opt for the same on our next visit- Priyanka, New Delhi

We stayed at Seagull from Mar 29 to Mar 31. This place has everything you will need when on a holiday. They also have a clean restaurant attached to the property serving Indian as well as Continental Cuisine.The food is pretty good and the staff is very friendly and kind. The beach is just a 5min walk from the hotel.The rooms are very clean, well ventilated and maintained. We had a wonderful stay at this place and the staff made us feel at home.Overall it was a great holiday and the stay at this place made it and excellent one. Not to forget, the rooms are a great value for the price. Cheers to the hotel and its staff. we will definitely visit this place again - Shashidhar, Bangalore

I stayed at Seagull Jan 2014 and found it a wonderful hotel with every amenity you would want on holiday. Very close location to beach, great restaurants close by and all sorts of shopping in the vicinity.
The Manager Alwyn was very knowledgeable and helpful with info re the best restaurants in Goa and all places of interest to a visitor.
Staff very obliging and did a wonderful job of making everyone feel welcome and relaxed on holiday. Good food in the restaurant and rooms great value for the price. Will book again for Goa..... Joy - New Zealand

We planned our 4 day trip just before Christmas time. We had booked the hotel 2 months in advance to avoid last minute rush during peak season. Despite that, when we reached, we were told that hotel is overbooked and were requested to shift in another sister hotel of group for 2 days. We were unhappy with mismanagement but decided to adjust to unavoidable difficult situation being faced by hotel management.
But at the end of 4 days, we were pleased with management of hotel. At both the places, we were felt welcome.
About Seagull: Rooms are basic but in good shape. Restaurant is lively and mostly buzzing with activity in evening. Calangute beach (not main beach) is just 5 minutes walking. We like this beach more than main beaches of Goa.
And above all we liked the demeanor and responsiveness of Allwyn, Seagull's manager. Good work guys!

Hi All,

I just came back on 06th of Dec 2013 after staying 4 nights over there in a dirty hotel and management i did a blunder by choosing this hotel after reading the reviews and info on trip advisor which stats the hotel has got certificate of excellence 2013 which is absolutely wrong ,I request you all do not go there if you are an indian specially...i will be uploading the dirty pics of the hotel very soon..........

Very basic rooms, bathrooms were quite dirt and the lighting in the room was terrible. /i have ask to change the room but dint get change. The restraunt is very small that too for foreigners only. Pool is very very small. Definately would not recomend any one stay there.

SeagullManagement, Guest Relations Manager at Hotel Sea Gull, responded to this reviewResponded 24 December 2013

In reply we would like to mention what the guest has willfully omitted ..

It is mandatory and legal requirement all over the world (including Goa) for hotels to insist of proper photo identity of all guests checking into hotel. This is to ensure safety of other hotel guests, deter prostitution, in case of accident of death of guest and discourage criminal activity or individuals. (obviously a sensible law)

This guest brought a female companion who was not his wife and refused to submit any government approved photo identity despite repeated requesting by hotel staff.

When staff explained we cannot allow the woman to check in without identity proof and explained the reasons being legal requirement he got upset and after a lot of arguing finally submitted his female companion's identity.

This extreme reluctance to give photo ID of the woman speaks for itself. Almost 90% of reviewers till date seem satisfied, extremely satisfied or happy. Although we agree it is impossible to keep everyone happy we still try..

The guest insinuates he also had a problem that there were only foreigners in the restaurant which seems unnecessarily racist to international guests to our country.
We should respect all people irrespective of nationality, color or race.

Thanking you
Regards

Stayed there for around a week May last year.

Cons: Laundry, bed, safe, attitude, TV, Food
Pros: Price, *A Reverie - Fine Cuisine*

The Calangute area is not recommended unless you are a cheap beach freak, food quality in general is a huge problem. There is an excellent restaurant at the end of the street.

Dear Sir ,
We are sorry you think all the people writing glowing reviews of Calangute are nothing but "cheap beach freaks" It portrays you as highly ignorant and opinionated of the world you live in, as a majority of people seem to like Calangute . It is not only the most popular beach in Goa but the WHOLE OF INDIA .

Your opinion of our hotel also carries a similar prejudice about it being hyped as over 94% of the guests have left glowing reviews and you belong to the miniscule 6% minority who also goes on to suggest that the 94 % are wrong and you are right .
