Very very nice stay at Fort Mahodadhi. This is one of the hotel located right next to the beach. most of the other hotels i found were cramped along the road next to the beach. But Mahodadhi was different. The hotel is located in a huge campus with sprawling lawns and spacious surroundings. The stairs at the entrance was grand and so was the feeling as we entered the rooms. HIGH ceilings. BEAUTIFUL BEDS. RICHLY furnished rooms. CLEAN bed sheets and towels. And the SEA FACING BALCONY was large and with nice sea view and I had an amazing time sipping few cups of tea every morning of my stay. Very nice feeling overall. I dined outside during both the days of my stay (one full day was out at Konark and shopping). This stay was one of the best parts of my trip and Mahodadhi made it very relaxing.
Things that I did not like was that the corridors and the doors / windows were still very old style but I guess this is a heritage hotel and they are probably not allowed to do a lot of structural modifications. But I just ignored that part, and my stay was fantastic. The ocean view from the rooms and large balcony was worth every Rupee I paid.
