They provided tea coffee maker with tea bags and sugar... More

Hotel building and amenities are nice. Location is right next to the beach. Peace lovers can enjoy solitude though it comes with a cost, you must part with conveneince of Swargadwar Area. Food is overpriced and not tasty also.

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.

However, it took me lot of time to convince the hotel authority that the AC was not working. Then they changed my... More
