“song of the sea”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

beautiful location,standard service and pathetic food.that is the song of the sea , Gopalpur in a nutshell.
Indeed you will hear the song of the gopalpur sea while your stay, more so in the night. to have a beautiful view of the sea, you have to open your window only. all basic amenities are available( no wifi).rooms and toilets are clean.
staffs are cooperative,eager to help but not well trained.
terrible is the food. hygienic but a disaster to your taste bud.
over all impression value for money if you exclude the food.

Room Tip: sea facing side is left wing while you are entering.choose ffront left wing

Song of Sea is situated in a favorable position along the beach shores of Gopalpur. The Beach view from the hotel balconies are excellent and the beach itself is just a few steps away from the hotel.The Hotel can be reached from the Berhampur Railway station by availing an auto or a cab and is a ride of around 30 minutes.

Just behind the hotel is the Gopalpur light house and that is open from 4 in the evening and provides a magnificent view of the coast line. The quality of service is average and acceptable and the hygiene levels in the hotel are maintained well. The food options are not many but the preparations are good.

Me and my family members had a good experience during our 2 day stay here.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the sea for enjoying the day time sea view from your hotel itself

We had a nightmarish experience during our trip to Gopalpur, Odisha from 10/10/13 to 14/10/13, not only due to the devastating cyclone but also because of some people who were supposed to be our host at Gopalpur. The hotel was Song of the Sea, a nicely located hotel with good view side rooms and its very down-to-earth looking Manager/Managing Director Mr. Sanjeev Bedi. But don't be fooled by his nice words and try to be aware of his real intentions. We booked our rooms online, wherein we paid 50% advance amount for three days accommodation, but before we even checked into our rooms, he demanded the full amount, probably because he had received prior information that would be asked to vacate rooms due to the cyclone, but did not even bother to inform us in time while we were gone sightseeing. When we reached the hotel at 05-30 PM, he ordered us to quickly vacate our rooms and refused to refund us any booking amount,although we had two more nights booked. More over his henchman, Gopal the Tour Operator too fleeced us by forcing us to pay the total amount for two days' sightseeing, although our sightseeing for the next day had to be cancelled due to the cyclone. Natural Calamity-we are helpless, but be careful about such men who are meaner than the cyclone.

Hotel is good in general. Staff is very cooperative. I had booked through makemytrip.com which offered only non-AC room. After booking, I realized that I need an AC room. I called the owner and he told that we will see what can be done. We checked into the a non-ac room, which had many hygiene issues. The owner Mr Bedi then shifted us to a AC room, which was a good one. But he did not make anything clear about the tariff. The staff and food etc were all very good. But when we checked out, he add a 100 bucks additional for the ac room. It was a bit too much for the location, season and quality of the room. Was a bit of deflated ending for me.

Room Tip: Ask for sea facing AC rooms and settle the tariff. Non-AC rooms are trashy.

I am residing at Cuttack. It was our weekend Trip.
It was a nice long drive to Gopalpur through NH 5. We have tried at Panthanivas, OTDC. But no room was vacant that day, and we were looking for a cottage. The Panthanivas manager advised us to go to Song Of the Sea, and he assured us the cottage for the next day.

It was just on the lap of the sea.just front of the Light House. One old Grand mom was at the counter. She gave us Room No A1. It was a big room, with two queen beds. Room was neat and clean. Decoration was simple. In one word, it was a feel good atmosphere.

The dinning Hall was nice, though we did not take meals at hall. We used room service.

Hotel is not too big....rather it's a small hotel. But you just love the environment, as Sea is almost kissing the gate of the hotel, and if you want to lost from noise ...it can be ideal place for you.

Market is a 2 min walking from it. Food was good with proper temperature.

If I visit Gopalpur again....It will be Song Of the Sea

Room Tip: Go for any First Floor room. Better choose the sea facing.

First I like to add I wont rate this hotel as very good rather I would prefer to chose the "Good" option if it would have been here.
The good point of the hotel is that location, helpful staffs etc.
I booked this hotel after having a chat with the hotel owner Sanjay Bedi and I must say there was no trouble and no hiccups. But little bit more professionalism would have been better from that aspect.
After transferring the advance amount in his Andhra bank account I didn't get any receipt or so from him to acknowledge the amount. My wife was credulous and eventually I'd traveled there with a bank statement copy! In this era, you can't accept this!
Other than these, I loved this place and probably will go in the future.
Food is ok and didn't taste other than chicken/ egg, plain rice, plain dal and alu bhaja.
My wife found hair on her food in two days - again this health and hygiene part needs to be improved

Room Tip: Choose room on 1st floor

Not too big... Small... But comfortable... I loved the dining hall.... The owner and his wife are probably a native of the Punjab/Haryana... Awesome location... You can hear the sea singing the all songs of the nature.... the easy-chairs outside the hotels are awesome for relaxing.... the food outside is not good... Try to stick in the hotel's food... that will be good :D:D:D
