This place was weird. The staff are so disinterested in your experience here that it is rather confronting to begin with. It is part of the Aurobindo Ashram (cult) so if you're looking for a friendly and welcoming experience, stay somewhere else. The rooms are spotless. There is 24 hour hot water available by the bucket. The laundry service is... More

We visited the place with our 2 year old for a week while I was taking eye treatment at ashram. The place was clean, rooms are big and well ventilated and staff was very friendly. Its walking distance from the beach though a decent walk from the ashram! They have strict rules but that's made the place so clean, homely... More

We had prebooked 4 nights in this guesthouse thinking it would be as nice as the ashram's Park Guest House where we have stayed during previous visits to Pondy (unfortunately they were fully booked this time) From the minute we stepped through the door we were welcomed with rude reception staff who didn't offer a single smile and who talked...

If you're looking for somewhere clean and cheap and wont need to actually attain any information form reception then this is a decent place. The price is great and the rooms are spacious and clean with a balcony. The problems only arrive when you need to communicate with the reception staff. If you have any issues you'll be greeted as...

My friends satayed here for 3 days with family. Foods are good. You have to inform early.Very near to beach. Services are normal. Every thing is properly managed by guest house staff. It is a guest house with Sri Aurobindo Ashram.

It is a very peaceful place. the location of this guest house is superb, it... More

Well the previous reviews are correct about the rules. This is a strict accommodation and you will have to accept the rules. If you are with your friends and want to booze in this UT, this guest house is definitely not the place. If you are travelling with either an elderly or on a pilgrimage or have somehow decided you...

I stayed ten days in New Guest House in December 2013. It's clean, well-maintained, and especially well-located. The streets nearby are full of interesting restaurants and gift shops. The Seaside Promenade is about two minutes away. Thus, the location is away from the hustle-bustle and yet accessible to what you'll be seeing. The rooms are sparse but adequate. Bedding is... More

I was happy enough at the guesthouse - it's fantastically priced, great location, secure & clean. I stayed for four nights this time, and I've stayed in the past. However, because of the 10:30pm curfew I stayed over with friends on one of the nights. Management called me the next morning to say that I had to inform them if... More
