“Stay at Panthanivas, Chandipur”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

After a long time stayed at Chandipur Panthanivas..............at Double Bed A/C room. Location-wise it is the best one...Maintenance not up to the mark....However stuffs are very helpful. Food quality is so so....breakfast should have more options

Room Tip: To get the sea view from room opt for A/C double room or Suites

firstly, the hotel is right next to the beach. works both ways, one can just step onto the beach for a long walk but on weekends there is a large crowd in the area . Rooms are clean, with split ac in most rooms. Restaurant is satisfactory considering the location and clientele it caters to. (it was a long stay, so had built rapport with catering staff).

Room Tip: top floor is best

Visited the hotel recently. One of the best location. One can directly approach the sea anytime. The property is huge and lavish. Location is superb for weekend getaway.

Coming to the cleanliness, hotel has maintained its dignity of being an OTDC chain. Garden is good with good number of flower species.

The worst part was the service of staff....Almost every staff will be after money(tip factor) . They will keep standing near you until they are paid something. If you give an indication of no-tip attitude, then they will hardly bother to even come down to your room even after calling up at the extension. Front office staff was good and informative.

Overall, location was fine and food quality was above average. almost all items are overpriced.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are sea facing.

Visited this property between 26 th to 29 th Dec with parents. Though I booked 2 months in advance for Day 1, I got a non Ac room and AC suite for next 2 days. Fortunately, when we reached we were upgraded to AC double room for Day 1. Here are the Pros and Cons.

Pros :

1. Seems this is the only sea facing resort in Chandipur. Makes no sense to book any rooms apart from AC suites since other rooms do not have a sea facing view and there is not much to do in Chandipur apart from gazing at the sea.

2. Third floor suites are newly created hence are bigger than 1 st and 2 nd.

Cons :

1. Room rate includes breakfast. Every day the breakfast remains same, Papad and Sabji though they called it Puri. Raw bread and omelette, though they said it is " toast bread"

2. Boring Lunch. They cook same Arhar Dal and mixed veg every day. Despite being close to sea, variety of fishes served is pathetic. Didn't understand what is the sense of keeping a 4 page long menu when nothing is available. Don't expect even cold drinks apart from 7 up or sweet dish post dinner.

3. They serve bed tea for free but pls do tell them to serve it sugar free and give sugar separately else you will drink a hot syrup early morning.

4. Duties of room are divided amongst staff and if you ask for water also you will not get it unless the staff allocated to your room is free. However they do expect good tips from you.

We did not use the AC so cannot comment however they do clean the rooms every day.

Apart from the first day we usually had our lunch and dinner at a small sea for joint in front of Panthanivas. We took a half day trip from the same joint for INR 700 ( for the same trip in an Indica, Panthanivas was charging INR 1200)

You can have good prasad ( Pulao, rice, dal, sabji) at Nilgiri Temple. There is not much to do in Chandipur and the TV in Panthanivas is not good for eyes. It is ok for a very short trip with a group so that you are engaged.

Room Tip: Only AC suites and if possible in 3rd floor.

I had visited this property once before . It was in the year 2003. It was a fascinating experience . The location , the tide , red crabs , conch shells and those memory took me again to this spot in the last week of June 2013. Since it was a trip down memory lane , I choose the same four bed non AC room on the ground floor.
I would say that location of this hotel rather the beach front near this hotel is what is Chandipur all about. The bed sheets in the room were worn out , stained and rather sorry. The furniture was cranky and to top it all there was damp all around. The foremost difficulty in the room was proper cross ventilation and lack of any space to dry clothes. The mosaic flooring was worn out and dark stained.
The hotel front which was previously green and pebbled was fully concrete. The beach front of the hotel was lost to numerous small shanties selling cold drinks , potato chips , chaat, icecream and jhal muri. The hotel front becomes congested with vehicles both four wheeler and two wheeler with teeming number of persons who come and overcrowd and suffocate the only narrow beach front. The seats facing the sea is occupied by goats and their daily litter, Liquor is freely flowing in the beach front . If you are looking for a nice tranquil holiday forget Chandipur . The sea bed which once made for great walks in ankle deep water was no more rock hard . It was soft. It was a total let down.
The ATM in the hotel should not be relied upon . The money in the ATM is not replenished frequently . You run the risk of being stranded if you are with only plastic cards.
The A/C restaurant is a dirty hell . Be there to believe me . It will take another page to describe my experience of the free breakfast, the lunch and the dinner or the service. The maintenance of the lawn and the property was very poor .
I would rather say that Chandipur is no more what it used to be.

Please avoid this hotel. Specially the non AC rooms. Horrible room services and horrible food. You almost have to beg for every little thing if you stay in non AC rooms. AC suites are better than non-AC rooms though if there is power cut(which happens very very frequently) then AC won't work.

Room Tip: I would suggest not to visit Chandipur. There is nothing that you can enjoy with your family or dear...

Overall good trip ,
1. we started at 6.15 Am in the morning and reached 11.30 AM so almost 5 hours with a 10 min of break for tea etc.
2.Road conditioon from Calcutta to Kharagpur bye pass is excellent . It is NH6.
3.Once you leave NH6 and enter NH60 toward Balasore , road is good but lot of highway flyovers are under construction resulting into slow speed and traffic jams.
4. Panthanivas is a good property and well maintaned . I was in the suite and All the suits are sea facing. It is on the beach itself. Sea is clearly visible from the rooms. There are other rooms also but sea is not visible from there.
5. I do not think Chandipur has any other property on the sea. All other properties are on the back side.
6. Food was good but you have to order well is advance else they will not serve you. There is no room service although there is a intercom in the room written with all the numbers. I was told that room service is not available because of heavy rush.
7. Staff was more or less cooprative.
8. Beach is good but crowd was not upmarket however in the evening it was better. Good point is that beach shops are open till 9PM and there are people on the beach hence you do not feel lonely.
Advises:
1. Go for Panthanivas , if you are really looking for beach property and book suite.
2. Budget 5-6 hrs as travel time ( end to end )
3. Beach is not very crowded hence you can have lovely lonely time.
4.

Room Tip: Suite are beach facing and clean
