"Serivce was good and good rooms"

In the month of September 2016 I had been to this hotel. The destination and location of the hotel was good. The appearance of the hotel is good but it was old. The check in and check out was done on time. The service in the hotel was good and was very friendly and helpful. The room allotted to me was spacious, neat and it was well maintained will all required amenities in working condition. Hoteliers availed tasty and good quality of food with variety. There were activities organized in the hotel.  I wish to recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.

"The room price was expensive"

Posted 21 Jul, 2016

I didn’t face any problem at the hotel. The room price was expensive in the hotel. The hotel was located 3 kilometres far from the railway station. I didn’t face any difficulty to reach the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers. The internet facility was not provided in the room. The gym was arranged by the hotel. The service was good in the hotel. The interior part of the hotel was very nice. I would suggest this hotel to improve activity and room service. I had visited this hotel with my family.

"Nice holidays"

Posted 14 Jun, 2016

Just now I have completed my family holidays at Puri. We were there for 4 days. We have enjoy the location very much. Yet we have visit this please for a few more times. We started our journey by Dhauli Exp from Howrah in AC Chair car. The Train timing was almost on time. I was booked the Super DLX AC room at Hotel. Outside weather was very hot. Anyway we don't get any difficulty. The AC was superb in the hotel. The food quality was average in the Hotel. But have enjoy the food at Hotel Seagull, it was almost chines food, but the cost was very high. Anyway we have enjoy our local trip with a ENJOY car. We have visited full day sight seeing and Chilka. We have made a river cruise also at Chilka, But the rate was very high. We enjoy the beach very much, as well as sea Bath also. My suggestion: 1. If you enjoy the holidays then book a dlx AC room as per your budget. 2. Book a AC car for local sight seeing not by Auto. If you get a good quality driver then it will be more enjoyable. 3. Be careful about your drinking water 4. Get food from good restaurant. 5. Be careful at the time of sea Bath. Enjoy your holidays All the best.

"Horrible experience"

Posted 14 Jun, 2016

We 12 family members stayed in the Hotel for 4 days in 5 Super Deluxe AC Rooms - Room Nos 302, 306, 307, 308 and 309 (probably the costliest rooms) from 15th May to 18th May 2016 and our experience about this hotel is horrible. Rooms are not up to the mark, bathroom fittings are broken and filthy. Food served in the roof top restaurant in most unhealthy & unprofessional manner. Our overall experience are very bad and would think twice before referring to friends. Rothin Mukherjee. Kol - 700036.

"Good hotel & can be better"

Posted 23 Dec, 2015

Stayed in Hotel Sonali, Puri in December 2015. The entrance and front office is well- decorated, but the rooms have some problems. The service also leaves a lot to be desired. First the good things. The hotel is on Swargadwar, so if you want to be in the middle of the maddening crowd, it's the choice for you. The hotel has a travel co-connected to it, so if you want to book a car for sightseeing, you can do it right there. The hotel has two restaurants, one at the rooftop and one at the ground floor. The quality of food in the ground floor restaurant is average at best. The food is better at the rooftop restaurant (though a bit too much spicy and oily for my taste), but the service is rather average. Also, the rooftop has poor lighting, so if you plan to have dinner there, you will be eating in semi darkness. Unfortunately, the good things end there. The rooms are not up to the mark with the doors and furniture cracked or partially damaged. There was no phone in our room, so calling the room service or reception was a problem. We were in a group, so we used the phone of a different room. The service staff is sometimes rude and often misleading. Lack of service or amenities (and/or overpricing) is a common problem in most hotels in Puri as the tourists throng Puri throughout the year and the supply of hotels is far less than the demand - so, basically it's a seller's market.

"Quick services; spacious rooms"

Posted 15 Sep, 2014

Puri is an excellent place as tourist destination. Location and appearance were very good. Booking and front office staff was excellent. Services were fast. Rooms were neat and spacious. Food and drink was delicious. Quality and taste wise, food was up to the mark. Sea beach view was visible from hotel rooms. They had their own restaurant. Whenever you required anything, they served you quickly. Activities were very fine in this hotel. I went there with my family in the month of December 2013.

"Satisfactory service ; good destination"

Posted 31 Dec, 2014

Overall my experience in the hotel was good. I had no problem to find this hotel. My stay was for five days in the hotel. Check-in and check-out facility was not delayed. Hotel was situated near to the beach. Services were fully satisfactory. I visited there with my family. Restaurant facility was available in the hotel but it was costly. Indoor and outdoor games were not available in the hotel. I took my food from outside. Cab facility was arranged by me for sightseeing trip. I booked non AC room there. TV, geyser and intercom were available in the room. Puri place is lovely destination for outing.

"Location wise perfect (If fits in your pocket) "

Posted 8 Oct, 2015

It's just opposite to Puri beach. Very near to Swargodwar. So you can expect a lot! It's a costly hotel mainly because of their location. The apparent is too good. Front desk is always available 24*7. Emergency doctor can be called (we had an issue). Foods were tasty and served hot. The staff are really we behaved and well dressed. If your budget is good, go for it. Puri is the place to enjoy water sport, so you will not be disappointed at all.
