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..
