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...

This place is clean & nicely maintained. Two minutes away from sea. No geyser in the room was very disappointing. The service here is almost none..and therefore very sad. So everything has to be done by ourself. No help is available.

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

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
