Hotel Golden Dust
Ranked #29 of 81 Hotels in Puri
Reviewed September 9, 2013

This is far from sea beach and you can only have the sea view distantly from top floors. Staffs were not professional at all. Not recommended for the classy people. There were no nearby alternative food joints except their own restaurant. This is also far from Swargadwar. Room needs to be maintained properly.

Hotel is right in front of the beach. All rooms are having side view of the sea. Far from Swargwadar and main market. Good for those who like to stay in quite place. Very quite and remote location. Restaurant gives tasty an good food.

Room Tip: Take 1st floor rooms for better view.

i stayed from 25/5/2012 -29/5/2012.
my observations :-
1) if u like peaceful environments then its perfect.
2) if u want easy access of main area of puri then it's not for u. each journey cost me 50/- for one way only. the way towards the hotel after lighthouse is so dark and broken that u have to take riksow or auto.
3) the most IMPORTANT thing is that DON'T CHOOSE A/C ROOM AT ALL. the normal power supply is very poor. power cut is too frequent. a/c won't works at power cut time. so the expense for a/c room is total wastage of money. generator not use instantly. u have to wait 15-30 min. for generator service sometimes. if u go in summer and thinking to stay in this hotel in an a/c room then i am absolutely not recomending it to u. next is ur choice.
in my case- as i ve paid the whole amt in advance so i dont have any opt. otherwise i shuld change it.
4) food /staffs are good. BUT IT'S NOT SOLVED MY ILL FEELINGS FOR THE A/C PROBLEM !!!

Stayed here from 09th to 11th January 2012...Good value for money. The rooms are not sea facing..Staffs are very helpful.

The main areas of the town is far from the hotel...good if you want to be away from the maddening crowds..but if you want to visit the temples, it is bit far off..

Take a stroll in the beach in the evening although it is not very clean..foods are very simple, without any spices etc.

Good food. Excellent and trained staffs. far from the maddening crowd of sargadwar.. offers the true feeling of a sea beach... rooms are not sea facing.. but each room has an individual balcony from which the bay of Bengal is clearly visible. This is a fairly good place to stay in puri.

Room Tip: Rooms of 2nd floor are Air-conditioned and much more clean.. we stayed at 303 and 304. suits are als...
