But before all of these, I must clear that, my comment should not be reflected or considered as any kind of personal grievance or revenge ! The location is very good.. just on the sea-beach and very near to Swargadwar ( One of the best tourist... More

The hotel is on a prime location, but that is all probably. As you enter, the shabby approach way catches your attention. We opted for their premium rooms, room is big enough, has a fantastic view of the sea. If only they could couple this with good service, this hotel has the potential to be one of the best hotel...

The hotel is good. It has spacious rooms with decent stuff. The swimming pool is good too. However the room service is not that great and I feel that there is a shortage of staff. The food is decent and the quantity served is also fine. If the upkeep and the service improves, it can be one of the best... More

Pros: Location Cons: Bad Management (gave 3 of us 3 different rates for the same room), Dirty,Unkept rooms and Corridors, Room Service delayed, No parking facility, Breakfast was included but was pathetic Final Word: Though the hotel is situated right in the marine drive please avoid staying here for all the other reasons for staying in a hotel.

What a experience. The best location in whole of Puri. Very nice property, with huge rooms, good decoration of the rooms. Very cooperative staff, with satisfying room service. Food is the best in Puri, with mind blowing Test. Stay at Camellia Purri.

No maintenance, dust, dirt, paan spit everywhere. Restaurant stinks, fly everwhere. I find the municipality or any other government offices are cleaner than this. They charged me Rs 3000+ taxes for one night which is not worth even for Rs 500.

Camellia stole our money. We are a group of 5 senior citizens planning to travel to Puri from September 19-23. We spoke to Mr. Kuntal Sinha, the manager, booked our rooms and sent an advance of 15,000. He did not confirm receipt, although money was credited to their account. 2 days before our trip he called to say that because... More

I booked AC standard room for my family. I booked before 3 months ago. The room was the last of the row and fully damp without AC. Immediately I called... More

Booked a family room for 4 adults and a child. The only good thing about the room was its size and view. Other than that the room was damp with paint peeling off, no geyser in the room on arrival (had to be requested which they immediately put in) which should have been there, electrical sockets in room not working...
