What a pity! Mango Hill in Pondicherry has a dream location, appropriately removed from the city centre yet not too far from Auroville township that sustains Pondicherry's economy. The rooms are large, the bathrooms equally so but indifferently maintained. Leaking ACs, malfunctioning tea kettles and worse, dated tea,coffee and dairy whitener pouches. Food is bad. Sad considering the bounty of... More

The hotel is set around 10km from the main city. The hotel looks good from outside, the ambience, architecture and landscaping looks pretty catchy. We had booked three cottages for 7 of us. Everything was fine before we entered the room. The first thing I noticed after entering the room was a BATH ROOM with DOOR MISSING and the window... More

Do check about all facilities that come along with the price. You might get disappointed with the fact that there are no basic amenities like tea/coffee kettle or television in room. Breakfast had no variety - there was idli-sambar on 3 consecutive days, no egg-station. The a'la carte western food during lunch/dinner hours was just average.

Dear Mr. Bakul, Thank you for your review. Infact it would help to give an idea to our future guests whose sole aim is just to relax. We are surprised that you mentioned kettle is not available in the room which is infact present in all rooms. We are quite disappointed at this accusations as such we have seen to... More

Mango Hill, located quite away from the main city offered a calm and soothing stay for us. The rooms were huge.. Dont expect all the amenities from a star hotel, but they serve their purpose. They had a wonderful pool and all the staff were very helpful.

For someone who is tied to a screen all day, Mango Hill offered the best getaway i could ask for. I was there for 3 days, stayed in their "Thai Cottage" and had a very enjoyable holiday. The pool is very well maintained and the restaurant serves a good fare. Unlike the previous reviewers, we found the staff extremely courteous... More

In this type of hotel you can stay with the nature. We had booked an cottage without aircondition but it was nice to stay in this room.
