Anandamayee Hotel Overview
Anandamayee Hotel Reviews (18)
Went on a family vacation on May 16. Indeed the hotel's vastness is the asset of the property. Huge green lawns, children park, Big pond for beautification and the goddess Kali temple in middle of the property is extremely soothing, refreshing.. Rejuvenating for mind while on short weekend trip with family and kids. Calm and quiet atmosphere with some puppies around your walk through the private road of the hotel connecting beach area made us nostalgic. Their redecorated restaurant was wonderful to have served Jeera Rice and Pomfret Fried. The price was on the high side, still the smiling service by the staff made it more yummy!! Since, the property is there for approx 30 years, some modification in terms of decor and modern amenities are needed like swimming pool, Wi-Fi as necessity of the day, like they have done with the present Restaurant look. However, to our opinion, this is the best price worthy family resort in Chandipur and we recommend it to every intender who wish to visit this unique pearl of coastal India in coming days!!
The hotel is well known in Chandipur and they have lots of space, park, way to beach. They have a big way to revamp and make it the best destination in Chandipur. The things they lack are: 1. Maintenance of rooms. 2. Exorbitant price of food compared to quality and presentation. 3. Remote location with less medical facilities. 4. Antique way of managing hotel with depressed looking staff. 5. Apart from a small park, there is no activity one can do. Bathing in sea is a luck. The seawater was found to contain oil. 6. Their low level staff is good but probably they have a horrible management. 7. Service is not good as the number of guests was high and service staff were less. Still they have a good infrastructure and can improve.
I along with my family including 1 child went to Chandipur for a weekend holiday trip during October 2015. Indeed it was a Great Stay in Anandamayee. Although the hotel is not sea facing but it is comfortable and nice and has a exclusive direct road to sea beach. I would like to appreciate highly the warmth of the staff members. If anyone wants to stay within the vicinity of Chandipur considering family ambiance and value for money, Anandamayee, then is highly recommendable. Vast rooms, clean bed, yummy food will be your companion to holiday enjoyment. Big lawns, inside beautification and children amusement were ideal for us. They have arranged our return ticket also despite tourist rush.
We are on a family holiday trip here. Booked the hotel 2 months advance and hotel charges were collected in full amount. After reaching the hotel we were busy in exploring the natural beauty. In the afternoon we noticed that we have choosen a wrong hotel. Food were exorbitantly highly priced. We found later that whatever order we used to give is getting supplied from outside dhaba. Even if tea is ordered in early morning, it will be served around early noon. Thus the high price and delay of serving of the food is well explained. No drinking water was provided, forcing us to purchase bottled drinking water at rs 50/liter. On the very first day we found that T. V remote was not working. We requested to replace it, but till our stay it was not replaced despite repeated request. All the 3 days we stayed the bed-cover was never changed, bathroom flash was not working. During 3 days stay only once the room was cleaned by sweeping, that's all. It seems that the hotel owner was just interested in making money as the final bill (despite the hotel bill was paid in advance) was very high with so many fancy named surcharges and taxes. Although the hotel has a garden so that the children can play but the see saw and swings were broken. Very strongly recommended to the future tourists to avoid this hotel.
The hotel is a good one. Reception of the hotel is very nice. Food quality is good and delicious. Room is very spacious and the bed was quite comfortable. Room was well maintained an very neat and clean. Service of the hotel quite good. The over all location of the hotel is very nice.
An worst hotel at a fantastic destination. No service at all. If you order for tea at 7 A. M then prepare yourself to get it 9 A. M. If your T. V remote is not working then inform it to front office never to get it. Rooms are O. K. But service is worst. Different site seeing tour conducted is costliest of all.
Stayed in December 2014 in AC deluxe room which costs 2200 Rs per day. Limited choice of food but tasty in true Oriya cookery style. Dal, fish, eggs, chicken curry simple but delicious. Clean outdoor park and the staff were helpful. Order your food at-least half-an hour prior for kitchen is limited. You can also have good food at Panthnivas but food is expensive. Other options available nearby.
Overall, experience of the hotel was very good with good hospitality. It is very conveniently located at backside there is seashore and front side main road. Appearance is very good with pond and staff were polite. There is no delay in check-in or check-out. Cleaning service was good but room service we found delay. I went with family in the month of December 2012. Room was very good and spacious but no view seen. I have not stayed in the AC room but geyser was there at room. I stayed for three days and I had two dinners with lot of varieties through service system. They provide many activities but no sightseeing facility. It is value for money and I will recommend with suggestion by improving man service.
The location was quite convenient to locate. The overall service was good and the staff members were cooperative and friendly. The appearance of the hotel was well-maintained. The room was quite nice and comfortable for me. I had a garden view from the room. I did not experience food in the hotel as I was outside most of the time. There was no any activity provided by them. The destination was value for money and I wish to recommend to other travellers.
The booking was done by getting ticket and over the phone. There was some problem at check in as the hotel people phoned and got confirmation about our coming. I did not like the place at all a calm and quiet place. The rooms were okay neat and clean with TV not in working order. The hotel was situated near the beach. The service was good; staffs were well behaved and friendly. The food was exceptional with plenty of variety at reasonable prices. I stayed for 3 days in this hotel. Fish preparation was really very good. There was no activity available. I travelled to this place in September 2013 with my wife on a relaxed holiday.
Top Reviews of Anandamayee Hotel
I alongwith my family stayed in this resort last year in December last week. The Hotel Campus was huge with magnificient Lawn and big Children\'s Park. It consists of 4 buiildings and 2 restaurants. Being winter, the weather was superb. The resort was also offering a festive spread for Xmas events. We got in friendship with a British NGO group who were also staying in the hotel. With them we enjoyed a Bon-fire evening arranged by the hotel. My mother was in love with the property for a Maa Kaali Temple constructed inside the hotel campus! The rooms were big with Phone and TV installed. The balcony attached with my room (the right side building so far can remember....). In addition the bathrooms were bigger and was nicely maintained. But the hotel should take care for lesser no. of channels available with Cable system. The food was great in the restaurant VYANJAN specially the Lemon Prwan and giant CRAB. But the price range to my opinion with other fish items on the higher side comparing the food prices here in Kolkata. Service was a little delayed on the the first day but from the 2nd day onwards it was fine. The house keeping was prompt.
Balasore is a nice and good place...this is an excellent hotel in this place.. I was very happy with the services and the way the rooms were maintained. loved the food
Hotel was good upto the satisfaction level. The rooms were good too,The room service was also upto the satisfaction level. Fooding was on average one, since the order of food for dinner has to placed at the time of lunch. Overall the room & hotel was good
Great tourist destination,sea is magnificent. Hotel room was deluxe one, the beds were soft & the linens were changing daily. Service was not so impressive,it was lethargic.Food quality was okay with limited stuff.
HolidayIQ Traveller Anand shares, "It's a very quiet beach away from the city of Balasore. One can only hear the music of waves, no noises or crowd. The waves are strong enough to thrill you. Lots of sea shells, one can collect here, lots of good Read More
