It is a good hotel in its tariff range and also neatly maintained. Good for family stay and even for long stay. We also enjoyed the swimming pool during the stay. However, the kitchen closes at its time so we need to order as per their time. They should improve in this by asking / taking orders from the guest pro-actively before closing the kitchen.

The hotel is super clean and organizes anything you want. Great value for money and the swimming pool area is so peaceful and relaxing. I would recommend tourists to stay there in order to enjoy the Puri experience. Would love to go back on my next trip to Orissa!

Great location, clean and very friendly staff! The staff can help you with figuring your way around Puri and there is also a travel agency in the facility to book any onward travels. A short walk to Puri beach, close to the Jagannath Mandir, restaurants, shopping, etc. After you have taken in all the sights of Puri, the hotel premises offers a calm and picturesque environment to put up your feet and relax. Lovely landscaping and an outdoor pool. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit!!!

The hotel is located very close to the beach. Also very close to the railway station. The rooms are sufficient,clean and very well maintained. The staff is very friendly and always happy to help and serve with a smile. The swimming pool and the Restaurant area is very relaxing. My wife and I stayed for 6 nights and enjoyed the place thoroughly. The complimentary breakfast was an added attraction. The swargadwar beach is about 3-4 km from the location.

Excellent location. Just 200mts walk to the beach.Food was fine , particularly the chappthi and sidedish . Thanks to the chef Boolu and Harish. The front desk people were very cordial and helpful. The swimming pool is maintained well. It was very clean. The cab driver Pradhan was very helpful and cordial. He knows little english. We wish to visit Puri again and our stay would be in Gandhara. Real value for money.

I stayed at hotel Gandhara during my solo bike ride from Kerala to Kolkata...i had booked the room online coz it was not expensive...i reached puri late at night around 11...i was pleasantly surprised...they have a beautiful garden and swimming pool...i was so tired i had decided that i would just sleep after reaching the hotel. But the poolside was so beautiful even at night, i spent a good 1hr there...very relaxing.

The hotel is located at new marine drive road. Superb hotel in Puri at very reasonable prices. The swimming pool is clean and tidy. Only boarders can avail the swimming pool in proper swimming costumes. The rooms are spacious, well maintained with good interior design. The behavior of the managers are very friendly.

I had gone to puri for my honeymoon and stayed at Hotel Gandhara for 4 days in February 2015. The hotel was an absolute delight and much better than my expectation. Loved the food from the Hotel Gandhara. My thanks to the staff and the owner of the hotel who helped us to make the total experience seamless. You can book your transportation from the hotel itself as their charges are quite reasonable.

I stayed at hotel gandhara in the month of Feb and I am very happy with my stay here. This is a boutique hotel at chakra tirtha road. Not many rooms. There is an excellent pool with sparkling water. The beach is 2 minutes walk from the hotel. This is near by to mandir ( Rs. 50 by rickshaw) and station ( 60 by auto) and swargodar ( Rs 50 by rickshaw). The hotel has the following characteristics - 1) cleanliness : beach side property gets lots of sand. The cleaning staff is always mopping the floor. The hotel is spec and clean. 2) excellent customised and tasty food. The cook is excellent. You can go through the kitchen and see the ingredients. They are best in class. Cook asked us after breakfast what we would want for lunch and got us what we wanted in the way we wanted 3) service attitude - smiling staff. Everyone of them.

We had 3 lovely days here at the Gandara. Lovely room, very good food and excellent staff. There is also a swimming pool. My only negative is that check-out time is 9am and they are very keen on this, we were almost hassled. There is an excellent pool with sparkling water. The beach is 2 minutes walk from the hotel.
