Great experience

Posted 9 Jan, 2012

It was a nice and relaxed stay at the Rail heritage hotel. In fact I stayed there almost twelve years back. The hotel has been renovated nicely, but lost some of its traditional touch in my opinion may be to keep up with changing demands. However the spacious rooms, wide balconies, beautiful old photographs and furniture transports one back to good old days.

Worth all the penny with spotlessly clean room

Posted 8 Oct, 2015

A very good hotel and worth all the penny spent. The staff was very friendly. The check-in was very smooth. They gave us 2 adjoining rooms by 12 noon even when the official check-in time is at 2 pm. The rooms were spotlessly clean with very good maintainance and the bathroom was though small were clean to European standards. The food was good. The chef himself, met us and arranged for what we wanted, even when it was not on menu. The food and drinks were reasonably priced. There is a free WiFi. I will certainly recommend this hotel to everyone and come back myself.

Well-located hotel, food cost was cheap

Posted 3 Nov, 2015

It is well-located, away from the crowded roads. The sea view is clearly visible even from the balcony and windows. Food like sea food are available at cheap price. Appearance of this hotel looks awesome. As hotel is in a good location near to sea, surfing in the sea is also possible. Sun rise, sunset we enjoyed very much. Easily travel to each place within Puri city.
