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

Be prepared for spartan settings. There are no lifts, no room service, no hot water in the rooms. Besides, that, it is a neat little place to put up and save costs, if you plan to be out exploring Pondicherry for most of your vacation. The rooms are decent, though there are no cupboards, only wall shelves. They have quaint... More

The guest house is very comfortable and well maintained. It is very neat and clean and rooms are very decent for the price charged. Food at the guest house is tasty and very reasonable. The location of the guest house is also good with the sea front very close by.

Taking note of the fact that this place was built with an aim to house the devotees and Ashram visitors, this place goes by it's own rules to accommodate them in peace. To those who adhere to the basic tenets of any Indian pilgrimage, by staying off alcohol, meat and staying by standard Indian dressing style, there can be no... More
