“A very good family hotel”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Hotel Sea Palace in Puri is located in CT Road on the beach side, in the lane just opposite to Sonar Gouranga. I got the reference from Tripadvisor as being very good hotel and it was true. Initially they offered me a Front Sea facing room whose original rate was Rs. 3000/- but they offered me the same at Rs. 1700/- +tax. But when we arrived they said that the AC of the room was not working and offered us the Family suit @Rs. 2200/- all inclusive although the original rate was much higher. It was a really an excellent offer. The room was very big with 2 king sized beds which were tastefully decorated having 3 pillows each. The beds are large enough for 4 adult each. The room had a big private balcony overlooking the swimming pool. It had a 4 seater dinning table, LCD TV, enough furniture to keep your things. 4 plastic chairs for the balcony. You could watch the sea from the beds the whole day! The toilet was very clean with a bathtub.

The staff were very helpful and always responded with a smile. The manager, Mr. Binay Krishna needs special mention for his cooperation. He took care of every request with a smile on his face. The cleaning was a continuous process throughout the day. They cleaned the rooms even on request in the afternoon.

The pool requires a little bit more cleaning, although the water was crystal clear the corners had some algae growth which should not have been there. Since they have a temple inside the hotel they only serve pure veg food without even onion / garlic. That may be the only major improvement point. But there are many small eateries all around where you will find quality sea food.

The location is excellent, right on the beach without even any road in between as in case of the marine drive hotels. One of the best hotels for family stay , even big families and enjoy.

The auto driver had suggested this hotel and our stay in Sea Palace hotel was absolute value for money.Stayed there from 1st to 6th April,2013.

The sea view A/C room with a small balcony provided was really good.Surely this is one of the best hotel in budget category since it also has a swimming pool.Room are well maintained,Staff members are good and this place provides an amazing peace of mind and exclusivity at the beach since it is not crowded like the beach front near Swargadwar road.
The only drawback - they serve only veg food. For non veg food there are few good restaurants near the hotel on the main road.

Room Tip: Ask for Sea Facing rooms..provides an amazing view early in the morning.

When we reached Puri, our auto driver took us to different hotels. However ultimately we asked him to take us to Sea Palace and some other hotel as we had read good reviews at the hotel. When we reached hotel, they told us that they did not have non AC room, which we wanted. After we stepped out they told us they can make a non AC room available for us and finally they also reduced the price without we asking for it. It was some what puzzling !
The hotel has very good location. The Puri Beach is at stone's throw distance from the hotel. It also has swimming pool, but I saw hardly any one using it. I personally found it not so clean and moreover when you have beach at 100 m why do you want to use the pool? The reception arranged cab for us at really cheap price to visit Konark and Chilika. For those who want to have view of sea from room, this hotel may not be right choice. Although there are few rooms with sea view, in most of the rooms, one can enjoy the sea view only after getting outside in the balcony.
All in all I think it was decent deal, but I would suggest fellow travelers to bargain well before striking a deal.

I have visited the hotel on 19th March 2013 and booked the hotel for just 1 day and hotel staff was friendly, nice pool and specially the wonderful location. If you are looking to spend some peaceful time then this might be one of the best located hotel in puri.
Hotel checkout time is 8 am and I think it needs little change as checking out at 8 specially if you are relaxing is little hard.

Room Tip: I had selected the deluxe room with a little bargaining and got a wonderful deal.

found this hotel good in terms of location and price. Food was ok although we only tried once. Beach view is excellent from the sea facing rooms. Hotel has a swimming pool but was found intruded with insects. Water was not clean. This hotel serves only veg food so non veg lovers need to go outside. There is a "peace restaurant" around 2 mins walk from the hotel. This restaurant is good for sea food. Hotel has a temple compound inside so you may hear temple chants and bells ringing during prayers.Although beach is comparitively clean from main one but sea water is really polluted. Overall the hotel is worth a deal for sea watching.

If you are between 35-49, or you are on a pilgrimage or you have elderly parents this is the place for you.The hotel is pure veg with no onions or garlic. Also no intoxicants are allowed to be consumed in the hotel premises. Location of this hotel is right on the perimeter of the puri sea beach and you will not be disturbed as the beach is not crowded. You can spend some quality time with your children. There is a swimming pool also in the hotel but not of the quality that is expected. Anyway you get a decent enough sea facing room with a private balcony for about $35, it’s a bargain. Th rooms are of about 100 sq ft with a balcony of about 20 sqft. The double bed cramps the room and u don't have much of space to maneuver.

The food is nothing much to rave about. Our orders were taken at 6.00 pm and the order was served promptly at the told time. We ordered Panner Kadai, Chapathi some curd and dal. The panner was soft and fresh, the curry was bland, the spices were not sauted nor the panner marinated . The chapatti was a bit thick and the flour was just about good, the Dal was a little more thin but not very spicy. We had puri for breakfast along with butter toast , the puri was soaked in a oil and resembled a small rubber disc ,potato curry was very raw indication of under cooked and not enough masala sauting. The butter toast was not not crisp may be because it was not done on a toaster and not the tawa. Overall food needs a lot of improvement. There is a Marwari Basa very near the hotel on the main road run by Lotus Hotel which serves you very decent food. We had some mix veg along with dal and phulkas and rice. Seems ok to have a lunch or dinner there.

There is a temple located right in the hotel with Bhajans going on, but rooms are sound proof and u are not disturbed. So if u want to have a pious get away for a day this is the place. My advice revelers stay away.
Overall I would rate this hotel as just above average.
Disclaimer. All my food reviews are for that hardened vegetarian or a carnivore who’s willing to forgo the meat for at least one meal

Room Tip: we stayed in room no. 306 which is direct sea facing.
