You will probably find better prices or even better room around here, but I bet you will not find the same staff and the same owner! Saying that because in this case this is quite relevant, they are just lovely and will make your stay in Puri more pleasant and easy! The cleanliness of the entire place is something which... More

Distance from beach is almost 500 mtrs. Sea view rooms were also not available. However, the rooms and campus was well maintained and they also had a nice swimming pool and restaurant. Food was good too though they took quite some time to prepare.

Its not grand and the rooms are quiet small but always keep very clean. Make sure you ask for a room with a A.C as it can get hot for most of the... More

We had 3 lovely days here at the Gandara. Lovely room, very good food and excellent staff. There is also a swimming pool. My only negative is that checkout time is 9am and they are very keen on this, we were almost hassled and as I had broken my leg the day we arrived in Puri, I struggled

There is an excellent pool with sparkling water. The beach is 2 minutes walk from the hotel. This is near by to mandir ( Rs. 50 by rickshaw) and... More

Stayed in one of the traditional front rooms which had character and were cheaper then the new block behind. Rooms were nice but due to older windows you got mosquitoes in the room and they need to replace the mosquito net on the bed as it was quite dirty. The big selling point of this place is the pool in... More
