        Comfortable hotel with great food.”

        Location, value for money (through Agoda), Kabob Restaurant

        This was my second time to stay at Goldfinch Mangalore. I was not able to book through Agoda for my first nite, so I had to book direct and it cost me twice as much as I paid through Agoda. The staff are very helpful and attentive. The health club was all but non existent, although I understand they are building one on the roof level. The free breakfast was nothing special, but very adequate. The Kabob Restaurant is rated the #1 restaurant in Mangalore, and after eating there, I can understand why.

        Good restaurants”

        Restaurant, room

        it's a business hotel first and a local meeting point close behind. as we were tourists heading south on the train and breaking the journey to try out mangalore, it would be unfair of us to compare with a tourist hotel. neither the hotel nor mangalore offers the foreign tourist very much, and the lack of a bar/lounge is indeed a visible omission even i guess for an indian business person let alone a tourist. the two restaurants were very good and especially the kebab one on i think floor 4. the rooms and hotel were spotless and staff polite and efficient.

        food, room and bar

        The Goldfich was a sanctuary away from the bustle of the streets, when you walk in you are greeted by the doorman into the newly paved entrance and shining lobby, the rooms are chilled, clean and very comfortable memory foam mattress, i liked the fact you can shower after a hard day at work, get the elevator down 2 floors to the really cool bar cafe mojo where many locals and guests mingle, the clientele are all well to do and fun young people with excellent dj and smoking area, then we would go to the restaurant in the hotel which offered unlimited kebabs of all meats and veg, then the buffet delicious curries and freshly cooked, great desert selection also. The whole 5 day experience was great. this is a new concept and it really works well for me. Good job Goldfinch !

        Great interiors, attractive hallway and good facilities

        The place is great especially since Agoda gives a great price for it. Worth the money in every way although a pool could've been the icing on the cake. Everything else is made with a lot of thought and care including the interiors, in-room facilities and other amenities. It would be a treat to the eyes of any traveller. The breakfast spread was good but could've been better, although it's a little difficult to ask for more than what is provided as complimentary. Overall a wonderful experience and made my stay in mangalore relaxing and problem-free.

        Food was excellent, free wifi.

        this hotel has potential, but needs a bit of smoothing out in some areas. check in was ok, though i had to finally explain why i physically needed a queen bed instead of twin beds. even though i had a reservation, and arrived at 2pm, i had to wait another 45 min for the room to be ready. the hotel is one of only 3 hotels in mangalore in this class range. there are only 2 lifts, and are very slow, though many people come for the restaurant alone, which is 3 floors up from the lobby. there was usually a wait for the lifts at meal times. rooms were comfortable enough, though small. free fast wifi made up for some of it's weaker points

        very inconvenienced. due to the 24hr check in system, we had to wait for 2.5 hrs after a long and tiring overnight bus ride to be checked in despite having a confirmed booking and despite reconfirming our booking and early arrival night prior to arrival. the air conditioning system does not work at all. there is a pub just below our room and our entire room was vibrating due to the sound, if a heart patient had to stay there i wonder how. in other words the music was so loud that we neednt have to go to the pub we could have danced in our room itself. the breakfast buffet was fantastic. but service was very slow and they would start clearing up or not refil from 930 am onwards itself. hygiene level of the rooms especially the toilet is very very very poor. toilet linen needs total revamping overall cleanliness is very poor and most unsatisfactory and unexpected from the standard of a reputed hotel like goldfinch. not recommended until they renovate.

        Disappointment plus!”

        We booked this hotel based on the previous reviews and the fact that it called itself a boutique hotel, not a large one. What a disappointment it proved to be! After being moved to three rooms on check in (the first being old and dirty, the second a smoking room and the third, on the seventh floor being a more modern version) I can safely say that what they advertise is not what is delivered. All rooms face the road and it is a major one. There is no sound proofing as there are two windows that open, thus creating a way for noise to enter. The bed was comfortable though as were the pillows. We ate at their 'premium' restaurant and found the food passable but the head waiter a rude and beligerant person ( as he decided to argue the ingredients of drink that we had ordered and returned as it wasn't made correctly, twice). Breakfast was also acceptable with special mention to the chefs making the omlettes and dosa. Mangalore is not an attractive city and this is not an attractive hotel.
