Swosti Palm Resort
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Gopalpur On Sea
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I stayed there for 3 nights & d experience was very bad except d cleanliness & decor of d rooms & d awesome behavior & service of d hotel staffs. To some extent they r unable to upgrade d hotel as it is taken on lease. D air-conditioner in each room is in d wrong position so u can't get cool even when it brings down d temperature to 18 degree C. If u manage to lie on d floor just in front of d AC u can feel 18 degree, otherwise it will be 38 degree. There is lack of maintenance, d AC's of most of d rooms don't work properly, so there r few choices of selecting a room. D food is extremely bad, though served with great care. It is better to eat from outside hotels though those hotels r not as clean as swosti. I must appreciate it's cleanliness. D staffs r very caring & honest to say that sea can't be seen from any of the rooms. All d staffs try to take care of d guests irrespective of who is in charge of which room. If u visit Gopalpur in winter then I think this hotel will be a nice place to stay. Honestly there is no better option in Gopalpur than this hotel. Mayfair is there but that is beyond d reach of even upper middle-class family.

Firstly, can't call it a resort..The rooms are spacious but not well maintain neither promising..There is pool table for timepass(if that's the reason you go to sea resort). Also, this hotel is not next to beach. The price is too high for the minimal service they provide.
Definitely not a good deal.

Though it is amongst the better places to stay at Gopalpur- On-Sea, the surroundings need to be improved considerably.Constructed as a guest house by Tata Steel for their Gopalpur project, it has apparently been leased out as a hotel. The rooms and the entire premises are well laid out and furnished. Upkeep and cleanliness is OK. The hotel is not too far from the beach but just at the side there is an open area which serves as a drain leading to very unpleasant smell.
The hotel has a dining room and room service. The food prices are comparitively high and the buffet breakfast has a rather limited choice.
We were informed that there is a scheme to divert the drain and once that is done the place will be definitely better.

Room Tip: rooms on the first floor and towards the rear would be better.

This is a small hotel and definetly not a Resort. Gopalpur being a small place there aren't many great places to stay. This was considered the best hotel in Gopalpur when we went (as Mayfair Beach resort was yet to open).
The rooms are big but not spic and span. Atleast we had no mosquitoes or insects in our room unlike many other rooms (especially the ones on the ground floor)
Location is terrible - facing an underconstruction debris and next to it a pond of dirty sewage water. The beach is around 5-10 minutes distance from the hotel.
Food & Service - was decent. Donot expect much but staff was polite.

I spent a few nights at this hotel in November. The hotel is about a five minute walk from the sea front in a small road near to the town.

On arrival the outside of the building does not look that appealing. A lick of paint would rectify this. It does not help matters that the hotel overlooks an area of land that is permanently filled with water and contains all manner of debris. It is used by the pigs for foraging and there is always an assortment of animals that come and go. Cows, dogs and goats.

The inside of the hotel is much better than the outside and the room I had was spacious and clean.

The restaurant served good food and the staff were cheerful and helpful.

Overall a very good experience.

The hotel is not sea facing and neither does it look the way its shown on the web page. The rooms are way below average and so is the food and management. The only good part is the service provided by the staff.Staff is friendly and courteous but beyond a point that doesnt work.
