Rooms cleaned daily with fresh bedding and towels. hotel area also kept very clean.
Hotel food was excellent,well done chef.We ate there on many occassions during our 28 day stay. Food always excellent and cooked to your spec,mild /medium/hot and spicy. prawns in garlic butter among my favourites at R/-150, BARGAIN.
The location was excellent, short walk to the centre of Calangute( even shorter after the staff showed us a short cut) and a 10 minute stroll to the beach.
From the moment of our arrival till the day of departure, the staff were fantastic. they were always prepared to help.Always smiling and agreeable. Word of warning if you decide to play them at pool, they are good.Also the staff are not there to help you spend your money by offering to sell you gold/silver etc as is the case in some hotels, just there to help with your holiday.
There is no entertainment at the hotel which is a blessing as you can enjoy a quiet drink aound the bar.
Would I visit this hotel again, ABSOLUTELY

All rooms have air-conditioning, TV, fridge, a wardrobe, and shelf space under the TV. Beds were comfy. Bedding and towels were changed daily. There was a small balcony at the rear of the room, and you could also sit out at the front overlooking the bar/pool.
Breakfast was the usual toast(OR cornflakes)and tea/coffee. You could order more from the menu for a small charge. The breakfast area was very small and not particularly inviting, therefore you wouldn't want to stay at your table for long. We never ate there at all, but other guests did sometimes.
The staff were all lovely and helpful, but very few spoke much English.They made a fuss of a family there with a toddler.
The location turned out to be fantastic, (as the taxi had come in from another direction), walking for 5 minutes around the other way, you came out by the Red Lion, half way down Calangute beach road.
The hotel receptionist made a call and arranged scooter hire for us at Rs/- 125 per day.
This hotel turned out to be just what we wanted, as we have often paid more and gone to larger hotels with more on offer, but we rarely use the hotels other than as a base, so the extra's are a waste of money.
We took our own travel kettle for tea/coffee in the room and used hotel cups (and milk from breakfast).We used the free safety deposit boxes in the reception, with our own padlock.There is a small 'library' in the reception too. This area also doubled up as a sleeping place for the night staff!
The hotel has a dog (ET) who is very friendly.
Overall this is a little gem of a place. However, I'm sure it wouldn't suit everyone.Some would think it too basic.

The rooms were immaculate and comfortable, plenty of hot water, fridge, tv and remote A/C. Clean towels and sheets every day.
Apart from breakfast I didn`t eat here as I prefer a busy restaurant when in Goa for obvious reasons. As mentioned above the coffee pots and milk jugs could do with a good scrub.
Nice location, few minutes walk to Calangute high st and a few eating places and shops. Dogs across the road were a bit of a nuisance barking early morning but not too bad.
Front of house staff were pleasent and friendly as were the room boys and other staff, however it was a bit chaotic around the bar area as everyone seems to muck in and help out causing confusion with the bar bills. As nice as they all are English is a bit of a problem when trying to order a drink, maybe they should designate one person who speaks good English to run things ? again not a major gripe.
I wouldn`t hesitate to stay here again, I enjoyed the place and it`s location, everybody got on really well guests and staff alike

There is a pool but the downside is you don't get any sun on it at any time of the day
We had a few snacks there and they were fine
The staff however were all friendly but could not speak or really understand much english
If you just want a base to stay in it is ideal if you like to just stay at the hotel I wouldn't really recommend it I would stay at this hotel again as I found the location ideal and the cleanliness was very good
