Really good rooms, very spacious and pretty.. room on the first floor had a really nice balcony.. Good food too ordered some cheese to take home! the pool was also really nice. It's best to go with your own car.

Mango hill is small boutique hotel, about 200 meters from ECR on the auroville road. The heart of city would be about 5 - 6 km from the hotel. First thing that hits you is the car parking, it cramped up & can take only a maximum take 6-7 cars. I guess the hotel by itself didn't have more than... More

We just came back from a 2-day stay (Fri and Sat nights) at the Mango Hill hotel. It was the Auroville Marathon weekend so it was pretty busy. We were there with several other families: about 12 adults and 15 children aged from just under a year to 11 years old. I found the hotel quite delightful. Yes, not perfect,... More

The hotel is located away from the main city but closer to Auroville. The hotel offers some good food & drinks & the swimming pool is nice. The only drawback though is the rooms do not have bathroom door & the same is covered only with a curtain. I was told that only suited have bathroom doors.
