Was in this hotel for a day and a night. The price was reasonable, might cost you between 1,500 & 3,000. The staff were not very courteous. Dont ever ask the room service staff to get to food, they over charge you and never give you an bill for the food purchased, even if you request for one. The ac... More

Luck wasn't on our side as we stayed in this place on a long weekend. The front desk folks were rude and unpleasant. This includes the manager. They work with a 'we don't care attitude' probably because Pondicherry is always in Businesss, or probably it's a Tamilian thing. The rooms are simple and neat. The TVs were old. Good points:...

We stayed there for 2 nights and 3 days. The staff was arrogant, refused to see logic and were generally very unfriendly. The phone in the room was not working, flush in the toilet was dysfunctional. There was a time when the staff refused to give us fresh towels coz they had given us towels the previous day. It almost... More

The front office staff is truly horrible over here. I don't think they have heard of the term customer service. I told one that I'm keeping my bags at the reception and that i will be back in ten minutes and he tells me "Come fast. I'm going to sleep"! They act like they are doing you a favour by... More

We thought this would be a nice fairly reasonably priced hotel near the water. We weren't looking for luxury. We arrived to find our room flooded, the AC leaking water all over the floor. We wanted a different room but they cleaned it up and promised it would not be a problem again. They assured us that if it did,... More

We were a family of 5 so we had taken the top most room with 2 king size cots. This room is almost on the terrace and you get a beautiful view of the sea. Rooms are good, spacious and clean. Service is also good. Economically priced. Its on the Promenade sea shore. Staff is cordial.

I stayed at the room at ground floor. The room is fairly sized but has got no external views. Bed, AC & bath were good but not lavish as its more of a budget accommodation. Biggest positive is that it's located next to the sea, so the evenings get happening around the hotel.

We were happy to get rooms here at very short notice. The biggest advantage of this place is the proximity to the sea and the restaurants and sea view from the hotel room. Rooms were decent & staff were nice & friendly.
