“Very good accomodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Overall the hotel is excellent to us.Rooms,bathrooms,balconies are clean.Each stuff is well-mannered person.They serve very timely & properly.Food was tasty & hygenic but some items are little-bit costly.The hotel has pick-up & drop-down facility which is very much timely.A.C works properly.Sea-beach is 2 minute to walk.Overall ambience of the hotel is calm & quite & beautiful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

During January 25 to 30 last year, I had ocasion to organise my daughter's engagement in Hotel Gajapati. Since a number of guests were visiting from outside, we had booked many rooms and requested them to organise the entire event. Though not located directly on the beach (less than five minutes walk from the sea beach), this hotel has a number of sea facing rooms with beautiful sight of the sea. In factfrom one wing one has good rooms and really wonderful sight of the sea. The other wing is also ok, but rooms are a little small. Price is competitive, the staff very cordial and the place is managed fairly professionally. The hotel has a small lawn bedecked with flowering plants and a hall for functions. During the period we stayed, ISKON had regular functions every day. It worked well for us too.

The hotel has facilities to organise good Darshan of Lord Jagannath, In fact, this was one of the great advantages that we had at this place. It is a little far from the temple. But regular autos are available and the hotel organises transport on request at comparative rates.

Since our food was pre ordered with them, I am not able to comment on general menu the serve. Food was good but could be better and more professional. Lift is not there. Older people will have to be on ground floor.
Overall I like the place and was grateful to the management for helping me immensely with the function.

Room Tip: Sea facing corner rooms in the wing just above thre reception counter are the best.

Good hotel. It seem to be a new construction and have been maintained like new. Rooms are well-maintained and clean. Service is good. Food is really good and they took special order for our kid. The hotel is walking distance from beach.

The stay was a memorable one. Everyone attended us from the beginning to the end. We could select our rooms on arrival. Room service was great! Downstairs the restaurant was nice and clean.
The walk to the beach was a bit more than pain, through the unsealed roads. We liked the attached varandahs/balconies to the gardens inwards.
At times it was a bit noisy. But just be careful. It can be a great fun when u get wrong thing delivered to your room!!!!!

We booked a room at this hotel for two days. from the check in to the check out our experience was very pathetic. While check in we have to wait minimum 30 mins in the lobby while we're told to wait for 5 minutes. The behaviour of the receptionist was so rude.
Room quality was good. Cleaningness was there. AC was not working all the time. Phone was also not working, there was also no calling bell. If we need some thing, we had to go tothe reception. Behaviour of the hotel staff was also not good. We ordered 2 bottle of mineral water, but they took more than 1 hour for water. overall experience was very bad.

We wanted to visit puri during the christmas holidays and we did not find any vacancy in any hotel.Then we heard about hotel gajapati from a friend of ours who told us that we can find some space over there.While booking,the hotel manager promised us to give us a sea facing a room with a balcony.But when we reached the hotel,they didn't even welcome us and take our luggage,we had to tell them and then they worked.The receptionist told us that they didnot have a sea facing room vacant.When we asked him to talk to the person through whom we had booked a room in the hotel,he appeared to be very angry and after feww seconds of talking he was going to throw our mobile phone.The service was also very poor and we had to constantly tell the room service to clean our room and provide the necessary like soaps,towels etc.Some of their staff were good and well behaved but the majority were terrible.Such idiotic hotels just destroy the respect and beauty of puri's beach and accomodation.Overall it was not a very good experience.
