Pictures of the Hotel are deceiving...Junior suite does not feel like a small suite @ all. The Restaurant is pathetic. Restaurant staff does not know how to behave with customers. It's a budget stay. Do not dine @ its restaurant.

I have stayed twice in Devis Grand hotel, once with my family on personal visit to Pondicherry and other was purely a business trip. The reason for choosing this hotel is because it’s very conveniently situated for local transit to do sightseeing /shopping and as well as very closely located to Pondicherry’s business houses. The hotel is attached with a... More

This was amazing arrangement and was located in prime place with all kind of facility. Beach is so close as well. Stayed with family for a weekend during this April. Food was excellent and so is the staff's behaviour. They have a bar @ top but cant comment anything about that as am a non alcoholic.

Devi's Grand exceeds all your expectations for a budget hotel. The location and cleanliness is the highlight. For a business traveller like me and many corporate people this would be the best place at even better tariff. I stayed in Junior Suite for 3 days on business. Overall the hotel ambience & cleanliness was good. You have the bar @... More

Stayed in this hotel for over a week in March 2015. A very poorly managed hotel in terms of cleanliness and hygiene. There were black bugs and baby cockroaches running around in the room all through the week. One morning, I woke up to a dead bug in my bed besides the pillow. It was very disgusting to be living...

We stayed three nights in Devis Grand. It is centrally located with spacious room (No 101). The room had a lot of noise pollution during the day as it faces the main street. The staff at the hotel is helpful, they made all efforts to help us out in any matter we needed assistance with. The French town is a... More

The hotel is located in a nice place. Room and bathroom were clean too. But there is problem of open gutter near the entrance(entire street in fact) which is an eye sore. Rest is pretty good.. Would recommend for budget stay.

The rooms are clean and large, ample car parking and centrally located. It has a non vegetarian restaurant Anjappar attached to it. So Vegetarians have to look elsewhere for food. The staff were courteous and room service was good.
