Hotel mermaid is right there on the beach. The beach is walking distance from the hotel. The main gate of the hotel faces a ruined house, which further adds value to the stay. If one can get an access to the terrace, one can have a lovely evening with family and friends at the terrace enjoying the sea breeze....

This hotel was freshly painted outside and opposite the beach. My room had a sea view and a balcony. The rooms and bathrooms are basic but reasonably clean. The mosquitoes are horrible. The restaurant was not open so you have to go out and search for breakfast.

Very nice hotel, big rooms, terrace, very good meals ( to be ordered to the Lady), very close to the sea. Gopalpur it's a dream place, many temples and unespected places to visit around. Jagannath and Shiva temple (here!) Tara Tarini temple Sonepur beach and Sri Sri Sri temple Chalik lake with fast boat and Kali temple.

The hotel is ran by an Anglo Indian Lady. Both the proprietor and the staffs are very friendly. Rooms are spacious. Had a great weekend. Though the hotel serves food, but we choose to have it from outside restaurants.

I came back to this place after 20 long years. I liked her awesomeness. This time with my wife and son. I really got through my old photograps and requested my travel agent to get this motel. The roms are spacious but food is highly priced. But overall a good place to stay with family.

“If you want airconditioning, you have to forego the view; but if you can manage without it, the sea breeze and the fans make some of the first floor rooms a delight.”
