“Great value for money!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I went to Castle House with my friends last September. It is located only a couple of minutes away from Calangute Beach. The Swimming Pool was well maintained with nice clean water. The best thing I liked about Castle House was the amazing breakfast, which I've not seen in any other Hotels in Goa. The Hotel is also close to the market.

Overall a very awesome place to stay with your friends and family. Much Recommended

Castle House is located in a peaceful area, very close to the KFC at the beginning of Calangute. The hotel staff was friendly and rooms were worth the tariffs charged with clean rest rooms and bedding. Hotel is little old but yet well maintained. Breakfast/meals by the pool are relaxing. Food tasted good On Friday nights they have a live music performance which we really enjoyed during our stay. Hotel staff is also quite friendly. Will definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for good value for money and peace of mind :)

Room Tip: It is better to avoid rooms in the ground floor.

We stayed at this in December and had a brilliant time. The staff were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them they even put up a hook for my sons Mossi net in his room when he mentioned it in the bar one evening. We had a great evening when the English played the Indians in a pool comp (we even lost at that but the owner was giving us free feni) Great mix of people with Indians visiting from Mumbai, back packers and various Europeans. Breakfast was included in our rooms and the veggie curry & chapatti were great as was the masala omelette, I would also recommend that you try the food on the menu for lunch or an evening meal as it was some of the best we tasted in calangute. ET the dog was also a star he actually walked down the road to our coach on our departure as it was very early morning and tried to get on the bus, real cute but evil eyes & top dog. Would not hesitate to go back again

Absolute steal for the value you get back. Now don't complain about room service charging you 200/-, the hotel is so small and cosy, you will enjoy going down stairs whenever you need something and getting it to the room yourselves.

Maybe the pleasant experience you get at the pool bar is because of one waiter being dedicated to serve you better who other wise would be running up and down the stairs to fetch tea and coffee. Its a "Budget hotel"- remember what you paid for?

Had I got more days of leave I would have extended my stay. The only whining I came across reading other people's review is maybe from people who have never stayed in a budget hotel before. Or maybe the sorts who would complain even in heaven. Or maybe they just got out of the wrong side of their bed.

Ok enough of the bashing ; in my experience, the hotel does grow on you as the staff have genuine warmth in being able to serve you better.

If you ever want to see a budget hotel doing good honest business do stay here, you will surely learn a thing or two. Yes laid back it is. Come on its goa not Tokyo !

Pool is very good and I'm not comparing it with Holiday inn. The bar staff will happily serve you while you swim.

Renting a bike is very important as this hotel is slightly tucked away inside maybe with a purpose to let the busy streets not get you with their blaring horns to help you get sound sleep at night.

Food is very good quality takes slightly longer to come to your table but hey respect the master chef. Complimentary Breakfast is ample and very delicious.

Budget hotels do attract lot of young first timers from nearby states who jump in the pool with clothes on ! I guess this is for the staff there to be a little firm.

Electricity power cuts were experienced but they were brief. The AC and the TV were brand new in my room 203.

Toilet size can be compared to any small UK hotel room. It's huge. Hot water supply is throughout.

Keep the balcony door closed ( yes I had a balcony ) in the evening to avoid mosquitoes. Repellent was provided before I checked in .

The small fridge was basic filled it with mineral water as its not provided .

Enough choices on the Telly .

You'll love the hotel every time you step out . Will definitely come back as it provides a sound sleep.

My experience was pleasant to say the least. Will definitely come back to stay here as its location is very ideal. The manager at the reception works long hours tirelessly and is very honest and sincere !

We were couple of friends headed to Goa for the 1st time, wherein we opted for Castle house & noted that hospitality was too good. Rooms were pretty clear, without littering around & clean pool as well. Complimentory Breakfast was one more added advantage which was at par with the 5 stars. Hope to visit soon, with the stay at same place....

Bye Bye Goa, Bye Bye Castle House

Room Tip: Ground Floor rooms are closest to pool

We were 3 couples and had booked this Hotel online, without any previous experience about the hotel.
We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and believe me, iwe struck gold. Since we had a limited budget, we were surprised at the kind of Hotel and service we got here.
The breakfast is limited but it serves the purpose nicely.
We felt location is a bit far away from Calangute, maybe because of the scorching heat in April 2014.
The staff is friendly. We also hired a car + driver for our tour at affordable rates. The driver Manoj was a gem of a person. He took us to various places and at superb Hotels where we could eat.

All in all a great experience at Goa.

Surely we'd recommend Castle House.
