A favourable hotel but not suitable for long stay


We were there for visiting the famous 'Jagannath mandir" so we stayed there for 3 days A feature of this hotel is, very near from sea shore(about 100 m). A very good sand out bathing facility after see Bath. There may be some kind of problem in verbal communication with the hotel member as they only used to speak local language. Hotel is situated in very crowed area A favourable hotel for families not for couples, not suitable for long stay.

Location of the hotel was convenient


It was a holiday trip with family. The overall experience was good. The location of the hotel was convenient. The surrounding of the hotel was neat and clean. The staff were friendly and warm. The room, which was allotted to me was spacious and refurnished. The bed sheet and pillows were in clean condition. They cleaned the room every day. The basic amenities were functioning properly. There was a beach view from the room. The food was a bit expensive. The quality and variety of the food was good. I did not face any trouble at check-in and check-out service. They provided indoor games in the hotel. They did not arrange sightseeing. I have no suggestion for this hotel.
