very soothing ambience with friendly staff. we booked sea facing ac rooms which offered a great view of the sunrise across the horizon. the food served was really nice and fresh. they offer many tours organized by the OTDC with pick up and drop at panthanivas out of which the chilka lake and konark -bhubaneswar are best. all in all...

We stayed at here last summer for 3 days. We'd booked 2 AC rooms on the ground floor of the new building because we had elderly people in our group and there was no lift. Though, usually, people think that ground floor rooms can't have good views, but trust me, these did. The view through the large (ceiling to floor)... More

Visited this place in Oct'13. This place is known by everyone in Puri. finding it will not be a problem. As per the images shown in the site, it looks average but in reality it is not even that. It has 2 buildings, mostly that do not have a direct view of sea as was committed by the person while... More

It was my third visit to this property. I love the location and the food there. I took day boarding as I wanted to go to the temple for darshan. It was a good stay and I enjoyed being there once again. I also took the help of the Panda who was at the Panthanivas to go to the temple,... More

We visited this place during christmas holiday which is probably one of the peak time to visit Puri. Since this place is at Chakratirtha Road so it is away from the maddening crowd of Marine drive. Auto from Panthanivas to Marine drive takes around Rs 50. We were travelling with a kid and the attractive lawn and almost a private... More

Located away from the humdrum of Swargadwar, this is a perfect place to stay in Puri if you like peace and quiet. The beach starts from the hotel wall and is less crowded. There is a beer bar, a good restaurant where you get variety and the staff are helpful. All the rooms are sea-facing with comfortable beds, nice decor... More

We started off in a different hotel over by the very crowded, more touristy beach. We went here to reserve the government hotel by Chilika Lake but after taking a look at the rooms we decided to move here. The main deciding factors were the quieter beach and excellent views from the room balconies. It is right on the ocean... More

We travelled there in January 2014. Like other government properties this one also is situated at a very good location just on the beach. But it has no maintenance and very slow room service. Please beware of mosquitoes and you should carry mosquito repellent/cream. We stayed on the ground floor and the sea was not visible from there. The food... More

Great location let down by below average product and average service. Huge potential to develop this location. Surprisingly no photo id taken from us. Safe to assume not taken from anyone. Does not give a very secure feeling.

Recently visited Puri and stayed at the Panthanivas. I have visited Puri several times in the past and have stayed at the PN only once before about 20 years back. I stayed at block A this time and found it nicely renovated. The granite floor on the stairs and the glass enclosed verandah were welcome changes. The room I stayed... More
