Horrible service. Bed bugs all over the beds. Rooms weren't cleaned when given to us. When we asked them to clean the room nobody showed up. In the front office there were 2 ladies and 1 man. The front office man was very rude and he charged us more than what they told us the initial price was. When we asked them for the manager they simply ignored and asked us to leave the premises. We had a 5 year old girl with us and she couldn't sleep the whole night because of the bedbugs. I wouldn't recommend anyone for a stay as it was a horrible experience.
I went to Gokarna and stayed in this hotel. The location of the hotel was excellent. The appearance of the hotel was good internally and externally. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The staff members were helpful and friendly in service. The room allotted to us average with amenities working properly. The food served in the hotel was good in quality and taste. There were no activities in the hotel.
We had a worst experience with the waiters at the restaurant who were very rude to us and on complaining about the rude waiter to the manager he asked us to leave saying they don't need customers satisfaction they have enough customers. The quality of the food is also not up to the mark as it is hyped

Top Reviews of Namaste Cafe
My friend and I travelled to Gokarna for the weekend and decided to stay over in Namaste Cafe. It's a lovely little resort that's right on the Om Beach. The rooms available were clean, comfortable and well-maintained. The staff was friendly and very helpful as well. The best part about Namaste cafe was it's wonderful open air cafe, which overlooks the beach. It is the ideal place to chill with a pint and a book or gaze at the pristine waters of the sea ahead and ponder about life, which is what we did. The beach itself is an absolute delight! Kept spotlessly clean, it calls to the nature lover inside you. If you're looking for place where you can get out of your room and take a few steps to reach the beach, then this is definitely the place to be! Also, the food is delicious! Sea food lovers must try out the prawn dishes, it is guaranteed to leave you licking your fingers! If you're planning on travelling during the peak season, please book ahead as this place is fairly popular with tourists.
It was mainly a spiritual/religious visit to Gokarna, extended by a leisure tour with stay at "Namaste". First impression at the gate, although, was not very good, once at reception (with lot of walking), & then with sight of sea, the pleasure got unfolded step by step. Some more attention to cleaning of the rooms, toilets, mattresses could add to good experience. The staff is attentive & with focus to give service. The separate kitchen or restaurant for vegetarian could also be thought of. Some people can object for the people taking liquor but it can be ignored especially in such resorts but the smell & smoke of Non-veg dishes is just not possible to digest/tolerate for veg people. Overall, the experience is good. I have already recommended to quite a few of my friends.
About Gokarna: You may not get a warm welcome if you don't know Kannada. At the same time you will treated good even if you try to speak some broken Kannada. If you are dreaming to try sea food from the road side shops since its a coastal area, sorry guys this is not a place for you. It's surrounded by temples and its a holy place. If you are planning to stay in Namaste Cafe, then you don't pay more than 150 for your transit to the city in any auto. The easy and best way is to hire a bike (ACTIVA) in the local mechanic shop for some Rs:300/day. About Namaste Cafe: Receptionist is not too good to receive you with big smile or so, since its not a resort / 5 star hotel. You can ask them to show you the Cottage / Building / Air conditioned Building. It purely depends on your preference what you want since almost all the rooms are of same size. Pros: 1. Sea facing almost you will feel as if you own the beach. 2. Secured, beaches are safe to roam around. 3. Smoke + Drink, you can drink plenty of Lager beer if you love it. 4. Food, I love the food of Namaste Cafe with a decent price tag (worth the money). Try King fish from Namaste Cafe for your dinner. 5. You may enjoy if your are a pet lover. There are some dogs/puppies which accompanies you in your beach walk and stays with you in restaurant as well. Cons: 1. No mobile signal near beach. You may not be able to use internet near the beach due to weak signal but, you can make a phone call in the beaches. 2. Again you may not get mobile signal in the rooms that you stay. 3. No Television, you may just want to relax on the sea shore if you really want to watch news, stocks, addicted to get sleep while watching TV, then you need to consider this. 4. Rooms should be kept clean on your own since the room service will clean it only when some one vacates. 5. Rooms are smaller in size and comfortable for a couple.
The most famous place to stay on the OM beach surely lived up to its name. You couldnt ask for a better location. The cafe on the sea shore is one of the best out there and even the people from other neary hotels walk in here for tea and food. The sound of sizzlers keep wooshing pass you ever so often that you end up trying one. You surely wont regret it.
I went there in February for 2 days. It was an adventurous trip. We took there a boat also but it was too expensive we took tracking. I went there with my husband. Booking was done directly. It was better to do booking on call if it was peak season or if it was an off season then you go directly there and booked it. It is better to do phone booking because lot of foreigners comes there to stay. There was no problem in booking and all. Hotel is located on the beach so it was very nice. Appearance wise, it was very clean but you did not get 5-star facilities there. But you can get nice food and good alcohol there. Staff of the hotel was very friendly. Room with small bathroom and it was like a cottage. Basic amenities were there. Food was also good and they also have sea food and all. I took non-veg food there. No activity was there but they have a place near beach for bonfire and all and if you want that you can arrange for it yourself. If you were in group so you will go there and arrange for bonfire and had food there. Overall, my experience in this Om Beach was very good. It is recommendable one. There were plenty of buses and it was an overnight journey and very peaceful. Roads and all were very good. Gokarna as a place is very good. Hotel's location was excellent. Appearance wise, it was also excellent. Booking and front office services were good. Services of the hotel were excellent. Rooms were good. Food and drink were very good. No activity was there and it was good.
