Been visited Puri many times and had stayed numerous occasion in this property but in recent past this hotel developed significantly, the ambiance of the property was good except a left out garbage located just on left flank of the hotel adjacent area and by any chance any guest takes a room on the left side, it's for sure that room windows are closed for them all the time as the ugly smell will soon grab the room atmosphere, so better not to take any room on the left side..

The food available in the in house restaurant are too good, be it bengali traditional food or chines or mughlai dishes.... you can't beat the taste... its to good, though price wise its not moderate but anyways affordable.

Finally the location of the hotel is beyond comparable than the near by hotels, beaches right on the opposite and safe.

One would definitely feel like to revisit the hotel if stays once but one strong recommendation that the hotel staffs, specially the desk support staffs need to develop a pleasant smiling face altogether while dealing with any customer, Smiles are missing from their appearance, which actually cost nothing but surely add lots if they start doing.

Clean, hygienic & wide space for roam around within the campus including the parking place would be some additional facilities that one can enjoys anytime while board this hotel in Puri.

One more tips, I am sure if you are in Puri, have a plan to pay a visit to Sri Jaganath Temple and this hotel helps you to get few trusted Pandas (who helps you to offer a puja & Darshan) but make sure to avoid Panda Raghumath Mudra, had some extreamly bad experience with this Panda, so just to mention please check the name and avoid accordingly Mr.Mudra..

Nice hotel, comfortable stay but they dont let you book the room in advance if you are visiting Puri for just 1 day. So basically you cannot book the room of your choice but choose a room thats available on the spot if you are visiting for just 1 day.

Room Tip: King Suite is good value for money.

We have been to Puri numerous times, had stayed at a number of hotels, but when we stayed at Victoria Club Hotel quite a few years back, it has ever remained our favourite. Spacious rooms, great view of the sea from almost any room, room-service fantastic, the ambience is great, and the food is excellent. Writing about this hotel almost makes me an advertiser of that property. But I assure you, whoever will stay there, will become one soon.

Room Tip: Do get a booking as early as possible. It always remains packed.

The sea facing rooms in the new block are good and clean. Good maintenance of this property but not all rooms are equally good. Service is not of the best quality and the food is quite okay. Good for anyone who would like to spend some time close to the busy Swargodowar beach. The SBI ATM and the Mongini shop located near its gate is very helpful and the silverware outlet within the premise is an additional attraction.

There are some amazing experiences in this hotel. On the other side you might experience a few things, which might leave a black-spot in the entire stay in the hotel.
The staffs would try convincing you to try the A/C restaurant which is more expensive. But they have a non A/C restaurant which is cheaper with the same quality of food. Btw, food prices are extremely high in both. The A/C restaurant guys would try ordering for you. Keep an eye, as that might lead to an exorbitant bill amount.
The staffs would follow you till the gate, for tips. This includes the person who delivered drinking water, person who took your orders for lunch and dinner, house-keeping lady, sweeper, security etc.
I was keener to check the reception guys as there were few issues reported previously. Honestly I didn’t find anything alarming in them. They were quite informative and professional. Just that the guy in rimless spectacles was extremely blunt and straight in answering to queries. And sometimes he just nodded his head to do that, which I found a little bit un-professional from a reception desk.
The Panda and travel-desk person were not at all pushy which I liked the most. Usually hotels in Puri are famous for pushy Pandas and mediators.
The rooms are very well-placed and if I am not wrong almost 90% of the rooms are sea-facing. So you can still enjoy the sea at noon from your private balcony or post dinner.
The rooms are clean and well-maintained and so are the toilets. The staffs are proactive and helpful. They would actually call at the intercom to let you know when the lunch or dinner is ready to be served.
As I have mentioned earlier the food price is very high but the quality is good. I was actually searching for a similar quality restaurant nearby at cheaper rate and found one in Parijat. This restaurant is the 3rd building to the right, in the lane next to Puri Hotel. If you are planning for a similar quality, cheap non-veg food, try Parijat which is close by. For veg, you can try Sri Balananda Tirthashram next to Hotel Shakunatala on the beach road and is also close by to Hotel Victoria.
The hotel has a grassy lawn , right in-front which can be utilized post dinner addas and as a small playground for kids .

Room Tip: Make sure you get a sea-facing room . I guess almost 90% of the rooms are sea-facing.

Nice Hotel, on the beach of Swargadar & located just besides Puri Hotel. Visited with family in March, but the temperature was hot in Puri. Stayed in an AC family room (2 double bed) at the front wing of the hotel. The front wing was apparently newly done and well maintained. One can enjoy the view of Sea from Bed Room. At the night, the view of sea was stunning. Room was quite sizeable and well maintained. Bathroom was ok.

Made a call for hotel booking and the booking was confirmed by them. However, they didn’t have any facility of online booking and payment. I had paid the advance amount through net banking. Being a good property, they should think for online booking & payment.

They have a restaurant for the guests, which was neat & clean. Generally they take pre-order and served varieties of foods. We tried some sea fish items, which was good. Price was slightly high as compared to Puri, but acceptable by considering the hygiene factor.

Due its location advantage, one can enjoy the liveliness of Puri Sea Beach at famous Swargadar.

As per practice, they also have one dedicated priest, who manages the Temple Darshan.

Only one small nag, even though the hotel cleaning staff / room service boys are well behaved, but at the time of departure, they all que-up for tips in different groups and one has to pay tips several times to different groups. Paying tips is a normal practice, but may be restricted to one time only.

However, overall stay was very pleasant & memorable. Looking forward to stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at front wing
