Not much to say about this budget accommodation really. We stayed 2 nights in the basic room during our stay in Ponducherry for 2000rs/night The first of our nights was reasonably pleasant with no real issues other than their being no internet and hot water, the aircon only being on full blast or off as there was no controll and...

We found this hotel online from cleartrip saying it limited period low price,so did book but got disappointed seeing the actual price of the room was even less and the quality of the room to the price cant be justified.

The Location of the hotel is very good. you can view sea from your balcony. But from all the room. While booking, you need to mention. Normally they dont like to book from earlier as they keep on changing the rate. if you are booking through phone, you need to give them reminder in every 7 days. Once they accept... More

Folks, Please do not consider this place for your stay if you want to have a peace of mind. The location can be okay but being in the hospitality industry, their customer service can win the " THE WORST" award hands down. Pathetic ppl, they are not at all helpful, do not speak properly, and very very rude. I had... More

The entrance to the hotel has a useless shop and a cafe/ice cream parlor in a small area. The lift also lowers your expectations from the room. The rooms however are better (when compared to the rest of the hotels). Please check out the view of the room before booking. this hotel does not directly face the beach but you... More

Extremely poor service by Cleartrip. The day I reached the hotel I learnt that there was no booking. After being online with 3 telecallers for 45 mins I finally got a room. As per previous feedback all of the rooms were supposed to be sea facing but none was I had to pay Rs. 1700 extra to see the sea.... More

This hotel is located right at the beach and for that location, it is very cheap. We got a room for 4 in Rs. 3250 per night. The rooms are average with all basic facilities. Don't expect anything more. Service was good, food average but most of the restaurants are at a walkable distance and it is literally on the... More

This a budget hotel with average rooms. The location by the beach is the only good thing about the hotel. We stayed in the room with a balcony at Rs. 3000/ night. The rates are actually negotiable and depends on demand. The service is pretty ok. The hotel upkeep is really bad. I would recommend this weekend travelers looking for... More
