“Avoid if you wanr to sleep at night!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Basic hotel in a nice quiet area fairly close to a lovely beach.

We have stayed in many hotels of this type in Goa but this is the first time we have ever checked
out halfway through our planned stay.

Rooms were basic and clean enough and bathroom large. Food was not great we found and service was poor.

Worst of all though was the restaurant stayed open until 2.30am every night and was really noisy with some long stay guests and outside clients coming here as there is nowhere else nearby.

It was therefore impossible to sleep until getting on to 3 am each night - quite unacceptable. After complaining to the owner the noise seemed to cease at around 1.30am but is probably now back to normal now e have left!

Did not like the atmosphere here and moved on to another Hotel in Cavelossim to get a decent night's sleep.

If your idea of a good holiday is to sit in a pokey café all night drinking this is the place for you - me? - I will avoid.

This is a good accommodation for those on a budget, helpful friendly staff and clean rooms. Location is a little out of the way so you will have to spend on transport but overall a good choice for people on a budget.

We had very very worst experience in this hotel, because we are Indians not foreigners to this hotel. The restaurant main cook Deepak who is Nepalian made a statement saying "don't make dirty this place, because main customers are foreigners". I made him to beg sorry for this ugly statement by touching our feet. I could have not spared him for such ugly statement towards Indians.

Coming to hotel receptionist Mrs. Miranda she has big attitude problem. When we entered to the hotel reception area she made visibly upset facial expression after seeing with us with our kids. Even when we had not finished checkin procedure she told put diapers to the babies as they make place dirty. This means no welcome to family who have kids.

On the last day we had planned some other activity so we left hotel assuming that will be back before checkin time 11:30. Before leaving I asked room boy to pack the stuff if we won't return before 11:30 am. We returned at 11 am and we are seeing that they packed our stuffs hazardously. WhenI asked who did this one, room boy told me that he did as Mrs Mirinda asked him to do!

Since we had 3 kids (2 years one, other one 1 year old and 5 years old) and we had return bus to Banglore at 6:30 pm, we requested can we extend room stay by another 3 hours, she refused and told strictly we needed to vacate by 11:30 am, even when we saw no guests turned until 2:00 pm (that is time when we left hotel). Finally we took one room in Madgoan to take rest.

Coming to good part, restaurant owner Lneey was extremely helpful and hotel owner Charlie found helpful. At least these guys made our visit memorable by helping when we asked. Location is good and price is ok.

I am leaving my cell number 9900477334,here if some one wants get feedback on this hotel.

This was our third visit to Veeniola and as always it lived up to expectations. Mrs Miranda, Charles, Lenny, Richard and the rest of the staff made our stayvery comfortable and the atmosphere is homely. The food and service are excellent. We will be back.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms have nice balconies.

Stayed at the Veeniola at the end of Dec for a week,had a brilliant time met some wonderful new friends whilst there,the bar and little restaurant run by Lenny was fab,lovely food all cooked fresh
many thanks to Mrs Miranda and her son Charley,for making our stay a good one,definatly home from home
only one small problem nothing to do with the guest house , was a couple of taxi drivers trying to rip us off ,the cost from guesthouse to Cavelossim was always 300 rupies but some drivers tried to charge 600 and 750 per trip but were told very politly where to go with out any payment
remember to get price before you ride xx

Stayed here for 2 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period. I have not one negative thing to say about the place. Very clean rooms and bathroom, spacious with a balcony to sit and chill. The staff were friendly, helpful and honest. The cost was fantastic value for money. Location is outstanding. Hire a scooter from the good man that is Joe who lives just along from the home and head out too one of the many stunning beaches, forts, forest areas. If you just fancy a pint and some food then head in Cavelossim town itself. Less than 10 mins in a taxi. I will without doubt come back to Goa and will only stay at Veeniola. Superb.

Absolutely loved our stay at Veeniola. Very basic room but somehow the welcoming atmosphere and very friendly staff have made this the best place in our stay in Goa. Out in the countryside and a short scooter ride to the beach ensures that this is just what the doctor ordered: no crazy tourist scenes. The food was always good and Lenny was always helpful - as was his highly effective whistle when he placed an order with the kitchen staff. The beds were a bit hard, but we slept well nonetheless. I think the locations made it even friendlier as conversations were constantly starting up between tables. Made it fun and super friendly. This is the way to travel.
