Talsari is a very good weekend getaway for relaxing in the midst of nature far from the madding crowds. However, the only stay option over there, I guess is this OTDC gov hotel. While entering the hotel, you get a feel of a lovely resort with well maintained lawns and quite a good view of the sea. But that is the end of all good things. The moment you enter the building, you get the feel of typical Government culture with hardly any professionalism in sight. The rooms, though quite big, are very poorly maintained. Linens are also dirty. The lights dont work. AC is not very effective and the loadshedding is very frequent, when the AC does not work. Food is pathetic though you do not have any other option. Service quality is the same which we experience from any Indian Government employee.

If you're looking for a weekend getaway, and love to take your car out for a long drive, then Talsari is definitely on the cards. To start with, people going from Kolkata can visit the place via two routes - the conventional Digha route, which goes through Nandakumar, or you can also opt for a longer and a better route, which is via Kharagpur - Jaleswar via NH6 and NH60. The route is long, however the road quality is better. But there is again the truck lined up at the Orissa border, where you may get unlucky!
Now, lets talk about the place and the accomodation. The manager is a very polite guy, although his staff can be a bit rude at times! The property is nice with great views of the beach. AC rooms however are not a very good idea, as the electricity is down most of the times, and the AC doesn't work on generator power. We booked our rooms directly from OTDC online. The Suite rooms are in a separate building altogether, and apparently looked nicer and is perfect for couples. One can go to the adjacent Udaipur beach, or also visit Chandaneswar temple. However, the temple experience wasn't so great with the pandits behaving like they are running a business down there! If one is travelling on an extended weekend, then visiting the nearby swamp areas could be fun. Tours on boats is organised from the hotel itself! One can enjoy the chilled beer over the beach with some fresh sea catch cooked by the locals! All in all, a nice and refreshing experience.

Stayed at Panthanivas Balasore for 1 night. Very good room and great staff. Totally worth the money. However the food was a big disappointment. if the restaurant is revamped, this can turn out to be a very competitive restaurant in the town.

Talsari is a serene , tranquil tourist destination ideal for people who love to spend their weekend away from the hustle bustle of the city . OTDC Chandaneswar is the only decent place to stay at Talsari. There are two more hotels that have opened up , but the rooms are shabby and not worth the stay.
We had booked the Non Ac room in panthanivas from the OTDC website. The tariff was Rs. 750 with complementary breakfast. Our room was on the ground floor and had a spacious balcony overlooking the beach . The food at OTDC was very tasty and at reasonable rate(Well may be slightly high, but worth the money) . We tried crabs, Hilsa , pomfret etc. A meal(generous one) will not cost you more than Rs. 200 per person.The staffs are very friendly and hospitable. Overall , Panthanivas Chandaneswar is a perfect place to spend your long weekend.

It is an excellent property. But not very well maintained. The service is not upto the mark. The restaurant is pretty shabby. The rooms/washrooms are not well kept. The suites are quite good though. The place is very quaint and serene. The beach is almost a private beach. Can take a boat ride to the confluence. Look for a Mr Ramani Behera - a nice boatman. The manager and a gentleman called Rajesh is also very helpful and co-operative.

Room tip: Opt for a suite in the first floor. carry your own booze.
