Goldfinch Mangalore
Ranked #5 of 38 Hotels in Mangalore
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Reception and check-in is prompt. Rooms are just average. As usual they skim on toiletries and bath towels. Only one room in the entire hotel had handicap access/facilities. Our room had warped laminate flooring and lights that did not work. Air conditioning is suboptimal at best. In one room the AC would not work all night. We could never get a response from the manager the next day.

The only redeeming feature is the excellent food. Breakfast buffet is sumptuous. Sanadige restaurant has some mean mouthwatering entrees with generous servings.

On the whole, in comparison to similar hotels abroad, it is overpriced and could do much to upgrade its service

This review is for Sanadige Restaurant in Goldfinch Hotel.

Their a la carte choice is wide and some outstanding traditional mangalorean sea food available here. We did try some Chinese appetisers which were also good but tasted similar so dont recommend ordering many of them. We have tried their thali's and enjoyed them equally. The kane fry is too good. You should try the food with the neer dosa/appam. I personally enjoy the fish curry with brown rice.

The bartender mixes the best margaritas in town, hence my reason for periodic visits. Since it is located on the higher floor of the hotel, the view is nice as well. The pricing is just right for what you get.

mouth watering food and best sleep experience. it was an excellent and memorable drive during our visit to this coastal karnataka. amazing and helpful staffs. clean and well maintained. Our dinner at 'KABAB' restaurant was nice to recap. though it is a noisy place we could experience that bit crowded no matter it is still we can afford to price what we valued. the basket "KUDLA" is another attraction.

Room Tip: rooms are better than any udupi hotels and resorts

Stayed for 1 night. The hotel stands out because of excellent staff. All smiling and very eager to help always.
Dinner at Kabab Studio was ok, Bfast was decent comprising of lot of South Indian Delicacies.Would return to this property only because of the exemplary staff.
Bad points- poor quality towels and linen provided. Good centrally located.
