I stayed at this Hotel for a week in January and although it presents itself rather well in the website, it is NOT an Ikea ideal like it's pictures. The whole place if scruffy from the reception where the boys sleep at night, to the back lane where it is situated. We never had a good nights sleep due to the hotel dog being locked out and barking all night. Coupled with hard pillows, hard beds and noise from outside in the lane Great eh?
No one used the pool all week as it just doesn't look right at all and as we had booked what we thought was a two star Hotel through a travel agent I will be complaining to them too, they obviousley don't inspect it. Now , before people say "well it is India" I expect to get what I ask for, pay for and also what I am promised,so looking around the other local hotels where the qualtiy is superior in everyway to the Castle House this Hotel is a con for Package Holiday travellers,and, as the Hotel manager remarks in replies to other reviewers " you get what you pay for" that tells you everything you need to know about this place, so shop around. Sorry my first review is negative but when you have a good time you don;'t really feel the need to put yourself through this. WillI come back.......not on my LIFE !
