I stayed here for 4 nights in the Superior Fort Suite rooms (2 rooms). This is their highest quality room but maintenance is ZERO. Even the intercom phones are out of service and we had to use our mobile phones to call room service !! The hotel has only 2-3 staff in the house keeping to service all their rooms.... More

We visited on 29th May 2016. Reached at 5.30 in the morning as for train timings but the Hotel was fully occupied hence had to wait for 3 and half hours to get our room. The room was specious and looked great. The bedroom window has a nice sea view. The pool was made available. We enjoyed it a lot.... More

Visited Puri and stayed here this May. I stayed in one of their wooden villas. I didn't mind their size much. They provide great service. The property is surrounded by all kinds of cramped buildings.

They claim it to be a fort but the building itself has no resemblance to a fort. Nothing outstanding aboit this place... Only good part is the location, its sotuated right in front of the sea beac and hence the beach is easily accesible...
