“Decent Option within the choices in Mangalore”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

I have stayed at Goldfinch a couple of times in the last 8-9 months including my stay last week
This is the only place where I had to shift away from the Taj (Gateway) and actually liked Goldfinch better
The food options are quite many and good. The local dishes here are actually the best
They provide a buffet during lunch times - which I tried once but later liked the a-la-carte much more
The room (I took their suite #606) is huge, Big living room, big toilet-bath and large sized bedroom, but now (during my second visit after 8-9 months) gave a worn out feeling. There is huge scope for maintaining it a little better in terms of general cleanliness etc
There was somthing wrong with the airconditioning, even if I set the temperature at 26-27 degrees C, it would cool till 24 and make ti a little chilly for my comfort. Also the fact that it would pick up smoke smell from somewhere indicating faulty ducting / vent
The bed was comfortable with fresh linen (very important to me for a good night's sleep)
In the evening, I went to their Top floor restaurant with my office colleagues for Dinner. They had a display of fresh fish for eating and the entire restaurant was stinking (very bad!!!). They didn't even allow us to open the windows for some fresh air behind where we were sitting as "The AC was on"
Breakfast was a decent spread with more south Indian options - Overall decent!
All in all, I think the Hotel has good unutilized potential (with polite staff etc), and with a little focus on "Raising the standards" in everything, they could compete with the best!

Room Tip: The suite doesn't offer too much besides space. My colleague who stayed (single) in the standard...

Stayed here for a night as part of free night coupon by Goldfinch. The Standard room was very big when compared to other 4 star hotels with a Nice Managers Chair and Table. The Wifi Worked Well and the Breakfast was also good . Make sure that you ask for some items to be prepared like poori's and dosa's which are only done if you order it.

Overall a great stay

I stayed in this hotel following recommendation from a colleague who was accompanying me on this trip. For the corportae booking rates, the facilities are no less than corresponding 4 star hotel which may charge you higher rate. The reception staff is courteous, co-operative. Rooms are large with adequate walking space and sitting arrangment. Hindi channels are available on TV. I could not figure out inter room dialing system. You need to ask for toothpaste & toothbrush. Complimentary tea, coffee is freely available and house keeping staff is very happy to provide more. A/C thermostat does not control cooling (even my collague who stayed in another room said so). Veg. buffet is at E level in kebabs and the deserts are quite nice. Salads are dry, fruits are minimal, no one cares to ask for roti and we had to take tissue napkins from adjacent table. The staff in kebabs were not as hospitable as one expects in dining hall. There is constant noise from horns of buses travelling from nearby road. There is no garden or lawns. The hotel is located near to railway station. There are few options in mangalore, but this one beats others under "value for money" category.

Room Tip: The hotel is L shaped or half U shaped and rooms are located on one side which is near the main stre...

The Hotel has good Rooms, with just above average bath rooms.
The staff is polite. The overall design of the hotel is nice.
The food is good and Sea Food is excellent
Another good thing is the 24 hr check out facility that they offer.

This is a nice centrally located and very well managed hotel. Our stay was satisfactory enough. The room was well equipped, nicely decored with a comfortable bed. New furniture, very clean room. I'd like to particularly mention friendliness and hospitality of the staff, and the receptionist was really prompt and helpful. They also have free Wi-Fi, although very slow. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation. The price for club room was a bit high, but it was worth the extra money in comparison with the standard I believe.
