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

This guest house is located on the sea front and in the White Town. I opted for a room without any sea view and room was to be frank just manageable. But then, location and price justify this completely, so no complaints on that front. In fact, we had complete flexibility to stay outside till late and watch the sea,... More

Price charged at around 5000-5500 INR --> Which was extremely reasonable for the views of the complete sea we were about to find out. Extremely beautiful view. simply outstanding..... Service:...

After a tiring drive from Bangalore through the really bad Tiruvanamalai Road, we just wanted to crash down in a hotel somewhere in Pondicherry. We had not booked a room before we reached the town. So we got this room through our desperate searches on the mobile phones. Our only criteria was to make it just as close as possible... More

We were here on 28-dec-2014. As it was not pre-booked we were charged 2500/- for a 3-bed room. Room was maintained clean and tidy. We did not get the balcony with proper beach view as there was a construction happening just beside our balcony. Its 1 min walk away from beach. This hotel doesn't have full time restaurant. We need... More

This place is right beside the beach road and you can also see the beach from the balcony of the room. The hygiene of the hotel is OK, but the rooms have been maintained neat. For this location compared to other hotels this place is definitely value for money. ...
