Harrowing experience of a stay in Guest House.
Posted Nov 8, 2015 on Hotels
First of all, the Location of the Guest House: It is not too far from the beach but still one has to cover more than 500 mtrs of distance to get a sea view. And although located in Calangute, the beach bears sort of deserted look; not safe for families after darkness.
Then, the condition of Rooms: we were provided old rooms (refurbished though), as, according to the owners, painting work was going on in the new ones. AC was working all right, but hot water was available only from showers. TV was not working properly. Cleanliness of the rooms was so so.
Now the most important part, the Service of the Guest House: hardly was there anything called 'service', to say the least. We were not provided with the basic things like- soaps, towels, water, glass, mosquito repellent etc - that a hotel with even the poorest service would not miss. Then,above all, there was that old landlady, who would start shouting/swearing at the slightest of noise made by our small children. As a result we cancelled our last 3 nights of booking and moved into a much better located 'Falcon Beach resort'. The persons, managing the guest house, were well behaved though. They refunded the full amount in cash after cancellation.
Overall, worst experience in a hotel till date.
