I stayed at the hotel in July month 2016 with my friends for sightseeing purpose. The stay at the hotel was good. The destination city was superb. Location of the hotel is very good and easily locatable. The appearance of the hotel is good. The check-in and check-out process was done on time. The service provided was excellent. As the call is made they are immediate to prove the service. The room allotted to me was spacious neat with malfunctioning amenities. There is fridge and WiFi facility. The food I ate at the hotel as tasty they gave breakfast. It was excellent and delicious. They gave complimentary breakfast. There is gym facility. The tariff is reasonable. It is a good hotel and It is recommendable.
Goldfinch stands up to the grandiosity that surrounds it. The location is very accessible and in the heart fo the city. The rooms are impeccable and the services are top notch. The food from all the joints asstd like kabab studio are literally to die for. I witnessed a function that was conducted there at the time of my stay and it was really so on point. All in all my first go-to stop with family. Will recommend this one to all friends and family.
I had gone as it was my Anniversary. We had a comfortable stay, the room was very neatly maintained, the bed sheet and the pillow covers were crisp and clean. The Hotel staff were very courteous and helpful. The Hotel is centrally located. The food here was really superb and the breakfast was also excellent and the spread was also good. The Pub they have is also excellent and played all English music of 90s on request. Overall we had a great and comfortable stay for three nights.
Excellent location with great service & good rooms
Stayed in Goldflinch while on a visit to Mangalore. Starting from reservation over the phone, check-in, stay and to check-out Goldflinch was great experience. I have to specially mention the travel desk, the services were exemplary with value for money. The staff of the hotel were very polite and helpful. The drivers polite and efficient and cabs comfortable. Very good breakfast spread and restaurants were very good in decor and provided classy culinary experience. Altogether a great experience and I have no hesitation to recommend this property to the choosy traveller.
