Quaint and warm hotel with a good receptionist who was happyto re-schedule booking dates at the last moment. It only has a few rooms and both swimming pool and proerty are reasonably well maintained with friendly staff. On the downside it is 15 minutes away from palolem beach with no signage making accessibility difficult. Also mobile and wi-fi networks were choppy, a lot of voltage fluctuations and the in house resturant had limited options on its menu.

... Hotel, of BBC fame, that was bombed in a terrorist attack in 2008 - beautiful 5* hotel that smelled of lemon grass. We had pictures taken with locals in front of the Gateway of India (looks like the Arc de Triomphe). We caught a boat to Elephanta Island and met a lovely man, who didn't know his age as his father was too busy working, called Chandra Khan. He took us for a tour and then to his house. Beautiful. He was so kind. We gave him a good tip and ...

One night I ordered a Ham burger and neglected to notice the space between the ham & burger....it was pretty much a toasted ham and ...
... to see what Santa had left behind the hut door. Luckily the girls are young enough not to realise that we had only spent about £15 altogether on presents this year, but they were happy with the presents they got. I guess the actual present we are giving them is a years worth of family time, and over Christmas we have managed just to hang out, be together and not really doing anything, finally letting go of the habitual “ So, what shall we do today?” way of thinking.
... s a peaceful view, but unfortunately it's right beside a main road with the familiar India sound of beeping cars, rickshaws and trucks! Th next day we walked all around town, went to a museum, hawa mahal and Jantar mantar. These are all important sites around the city - Jantar Mantar (apart from having an awesome name) has a very impressive and massive sun dial - which is accurate down to the second. Only a quick stop - onward to ...
... up to is with a massive gun and asked us what we were doing!! I was like 'sorry sir!! We're going now'' but the guys were a bit more like 'what are doing wrong?' But he had a gun and a massive one at that so I was like yes yes we're leaving!!'. I don't know iv been told u can sleep on beaches here legally etc etc but he did not seem too happy with us sooo went back to my place. Next day jack come to mine about 11 ish and we went and had some amazing ...
