Conveniently located with average appearance

6.0/7

The hotel was convenient to locate and we did not find any problem in travelling here. The appearance of the hotel was average but services and facilities were very good. The staff members were helpful and friendly in behaviour. The room allotted to us was maintained cleanly with basic amenities working properly but we did not find it comfortable in this room. The food served in the hotel was good in quality and taste, but the prices were slightly expensive. There were no activities or sightseeing trip available at this hotel. I had been here with my family on a holiday tour and I will suggest the management to maintain this hotel like they maintain other properties.

Wonderful place to stay and relax

5.5/7

Nice Government run hotel at Chilika, a excellent place on the edge of Chilka Lake. Resort is like an oasis in the midst of a desolate place. Place is about 6 km from Chilka Railway station and about 12 km from Balugaon Railway Station. NH 5 highway is about 3 km from the hotel Best part of this place is the peaceful scenic place where in one can savor the beauty of Chilka Lake Rooms are having clean sheets with amenities like TV and inter connect phone. WiFi not available. Hospitable staff. Canteen separate and food good and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended for prawn and crab eaters. Nearby one can go for boat ride, children play and park area. Ample parking space. Check-in check-out okay. One has to pay by cash as card swipe not working most of the time. Power failures sometime. No generator back up Overall, this place is highly recommended for nature lovers, adventure and wild life tourist. In winter one can see lot of migratory birds. Also, one can plan for Irawady Dolphin spotting in Chilka lake,

Overall enjoyed the stay in this place

5.1/7

The OTDC Hotel Chilika is really great. You can enjoy staying there. There are four types of rooms AC Deluxe, AC Cottage, Non-AC DR, Non-AC FR what ever in your budget. You can take. Rooms are big, clean and very beautiful. There is a very beautiful garden around the hotel where you can take a walk and see the mesmerizing view of the lake . Hotel staff are very good and supportive. Hotel has his own restaurant where you can enjoy different types of tasty food. They also provide a boat tour for the tourist. You should have once in your life go to Chilika lake and enjoy the nature, migrated birds all around the world and dolphins.

No activities, but provides all facilities

4.9/7

My overall experience was good from this hotel. Location of the hotel was out of the city but it was nice. It was a relax holiday with my girlfriend in the month of October. Inner and outer look of the hotel was fine. Check-in and check-out facility was easy. Staff behaviour was cooperative. Rooms were neat and clean. TV, AC and other basic amenities were available. Food was tasty. Veg and non-veg both varieties were available. Nothing was available in activities. Hotel was value for money according to me. It is a recommendable for others.

Many of the services are unavailable

4.3/7

I heard a lot about Chilika Lake, actually a lagoon before I decided to visit the place. The lake is connected to the Bay of Bengal which is also a place to visit in chilika . I took a cab and started from Puri at about 8-00 in the morning and reached a place name as Sipakuda from where the boat is available to have a boat riding which is managed by fishermen co-operative for the purpose of visiting the Irawati Dolphin, Sea mouth and the red crab in one of the island. But before that my driver took me a hotel named as Hotel Sea Mouth at the point itself for booking the Lunch so that we can have our lunch on return. You can not have an expectation that you will have a great lunch at that place but it is air conditioned. And various sea food are available . We took the boat and visited the Dolphins ( a family of three) swimming in the but they are disturbed by the sound of motorized boats. It is great experience also to visit the island where red crab are seen buisy but be-careful to see them from a distance otherwise they will hide themselves in their whole. Then after lunch proceeded to OTDC HOTEL where we area non-ac double bed room was provided but the hotel is under repair as a result many of the services are unavailable and our experience is very bad about the hotel . . My advice to the visiting tourists that they can go to Satpada by starting at morning preferably at 7-00 am or before thus they can reach there by 8-30 am and they can return the same day at Puri around 3-00 pm. The boat journey takes about 3 to 4 hours. About hotel Panthanibas of OTDC at Satpada I can say before booking please talk with the officials before booking otherwise they will be frustrated

The hotel should be called PanthNiwas at Rambha. We had rented ordinary (NonAC) double room; even then the view from our (private) balcony was scenic lake view. The staff was very helpful and service (as well as food excellent.
