I stayed here for a day. Kitchen food was good and the cook at that place makes very delicious food. Great rooms, nice pool, front garden and deck area are really nice and clean. View from my room was great too with a spacious balcony which had a table and chair so that i can come out of my room and sit outside and even have food or tea there. I stayed in a deluxe room and my wife loved it the moment we arrived into the room and also wished we could extend our stay. Two things i didn't like about my stay are - 1. Hotel didn't accept my dinner order saying its time already. They never told or have anything written on the in-room menus saying that there is any last order timing for dinner. It says dinner time is till 9pm and i had called in to order by 8:58pm. And they said there is a restaurant just outside the hotel. I wanted room service from the hotel itself as the lunch i had was really good, and food tasted like home cooked food. 2. I was served peeled and cut bananas saying its fruit salad which was part of the continental menu for breakfast. When i asked them about it the manager gave me vague excuses. And was not interested in doing something to fix it. Overall the place is good to stay. But i wont recommend the add-on services.

I usually hop around hotels after staying for 2 nights. Buy my family loved it so much I stayed there for rest of my vacation canceling all other hotels. You can walk in to the kitchen and get foods customized. The front lawn is too spacious and the pool will be cleaned every hour all the time despite no one is using. If you have kids or toddlers this is heaven. The owner is very very lineant. He will take care of your every needs. Pro tip - WiFi is 30 mbps which is rare in Puri

Clean, spacious rooms in central Puri. The staff were always very helpful. The pool was closed due to State Govt COVID regulations, but this obviously wasn't within their control. Overall a very reasonable option in the heart of town.

I have been traveling to Puri for the last 34 years and I have been in many hotels. But for the last 17 years I always come to this hotel. It is the best for many reasons: Cieannes, Safety, Helpful Staff. The swimming pool it's also a plus. Once you are inside the hotel you realise the peaceful atmosphere of this place.
