The hotel is located at new marine drive road. Superb hotel in Puri at very reasonable prices. The swimming pool is clean and tidy. Only boarders can avail the swimming pool in proper swimming costumes. The rooms are spacious, well maintained with good interior design. The behavior of the managers are very friendly.

It has a swimming pool, which they try to keep clean but you will find cigarette buts in the water!!! The rooms are not worth their price. Because of severe power off, you wont get air-conditioning from generator. You do not get enough television channels to watch and the channels don't appear in many rooms. My guests (families with kids)... More

Lovely setting, we had a budget room (800rs) which was brilliant value. Just beware it faces the road so can be noisy and the toilet is a squat toilet not a western. The pool was quite dirty but everything else was clean and really - a really lovely relaxing area around the pool, although for some reason there were hundreds... More

I had planned on staying three nights and ended up staying over a week! The rooms are super clean and comfortable and the garden is delightful. The staff is friendly, courteous and very professional.

The Room were neat and clean but ambience was poor the doors and the windows were of aluminium framework. The worst was the rooms had mosquitos and lizards. The hotel like Holiday Resort and Ananya were far superior. I would never go back to this hotel again it is below standard
