Booked 2 AC DR, they were happy to provide the last rooms on the block (closest to sea). The view from 2nd floor room was mesmerizing to say the least, gives a feeling of being on the beach itself. The staffs (room service / restaurant) are mostly quite helping and smiling, catered to all our requests.
Rooms are big enough, good ac, geysers. Water flow was great. Ample parking space inside the property for people travelling by car. Recent cyclone has made lots of damages, and the lift is still not working, but thats totally understandable.
Note: lift is only available to the main building (distant one, having restaurant). All the deluxe rooms are in that block.
The other one, where we stayed is more adjacent to sea, has a private balcony, and houses only AC DR and Suites.
I would love to come back here. Thanks for all the nice memory.
Very Very Poor. Don't come here if you have a baby

Writing this sitting inside the room on the 1st day. Reached at almost 8'o clock. Got room at 9:30. For 1 and 1/2 hrs don't know what they are doing !!. Very pathetic co-ordination between reception and room service. For ex: reception said lunch will be given to room(requested as I have a baby so thought all will eat here only). Room service said not possible. I told but reception said !! They said then talk to reception!! Beautiful!! When we said we are waiting for so long to get the room ready. Can't we take the breakfast!!(its complementary), reception said don't worry you will get it if it got late. When at last we got the room we were said that at first go to get the breakfast as it will be closed!! So hurrily we have to rush to get the breakfast. There also cofee was not there. Only tea. Don't know what will come next !!
Good location, cheap food but poor rooms

The hotel owned and run by the OTDC, the tourism wing of Odisha government is on the sea front about 15 min drive from the Puri temple. I stayed in the AC deluxe double room, which is cheapest of the options here. The rooms are in the old building ,and looks old also. Bathrooms are not satisfactory. The view though from the balcony is great. The restaurant serves complimentary breakfast. They also offer lunch and dinner at a very reasonable rate. The price in the off season looks costly as other similar facilities are available in cheaper rates. But this is a government owned facility hence has its typical advantages and disadvantages.
Location, safety, food, air conditioning,balcony view
Cons: old building, poorly maintained, price bit on the higher side, poor level of cleanliness
Comfortable stay for one day at Puri Pantha Nivas
on Sep 11, 2019
I checked in on 7th September 2019 at 8 AM and checked out the next day at 5.15 AM. The hotel is located on the Puri sea beach, off Chakra Teertha Road and can be easily reached from Puri railway station. The hotel is run by Odisha Tourism Development Corporation (OTDC), a Govt of Odisha undertaking. Booking was done online on OTDC website. The website is very good. The staff are very good, helpful and extremely polite. Check-in is easy. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet. There is a spacious corridor in front of the rooms, which provised an excellent view of the sea. Chairs are placed on this corridor so that people can sit and watch the sea. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. The hotel was completely damaged by cyclone Fani in May this year, but has been restored to a great extent. Only the lift need to be replaced.
