I stayed here for the Nabakalebara Jagannath Rath Yatra Puri....it was a last minute choice as all hotels werw full due to the unprecedented crowds. I had requested for a Sea facing room and my desire to sit out to enjoy the view was interrupted by the Air conditioning dripping constantly...the hotel advertises itself as a Three Star property....well, the...

We had awful stay in this Hotel. Though the rooms are facing the Beach and sea, the rooms are small stuffed with furniture, bathrooms are not cleaned. Staffs are good and food average. The Salty atmosphere is eating away the building... To much of commotion in the Hotel. Not at par with their group Hotels like Tarapith.

The view from the hotel are excellent. I reached Puri @ 5:30 AM and the staff was quick to allot me a room(Do not be conclusive about the hospitality from this event). The room AC was not working. However, it took me lot of time to convince the hotel authority that the AC was not working. Then they changed my... More

I had booked a suite for 5 days. The hotel is a little far from the hustle bustle. It might not be good at the night to sit on the beach in front. It is on the beach but the suites are not really sea facing. Instead they offer a corner view. The ACs in the suites had a problem.... More

The hotel although situated on the beach is actually a little far from the main hustle bustle. Booked a suite for five days however the rooms were not well equipped. The ACs were faulty and so was the tea maker. The suite was not really beach facing as advertised , the corner verandah gave a corner view of the beach.... More

We stayed from 1st June to 4th June, location is excellent, best sea view from any other hotel at Puri, Few steps from Sea Beach. Free from crowd but not far away from Swargadwar, it is walking distance. Reception is very helpful, Restaurant Staffs are polite and very co-operative. Housekeeping department appears facing shortage of staff but they are doing... More
