The hotel's location is simply mind-blowing as its bang opposite Promenade beach and is near to French War Memorial, Aurobindo Ashram, market, etc. Ours was a sea-facing room which added to the charm in such a way that my wife and I were hesitant to check-out. Just off the A/C for some time during noon/evening and keep the windows open... More

My girlfriends and I stayed at The Promenade. The place is clean and excellent service. The hotel is also by the beach which was wonderful. This location is also close to some of the sight seeing places we went. 45 mins by car to Auroville. Breakfast spread was excellent and is included in the stay. They had a great spread!

I recently visited Pondicherry with my friends and stayed at this gorgeous premier hotel located right at the heart of Pondicherry city. The ambiance is worth mentioning. The service is great, which, in a way ensured a comfortable stay. However the best part of the hotel being is its location right in front of the sea. Food being not that... More

We had an enjoyable stay at The Promenade in end-December. The sea-facing rooms are particularly good as one can hear the sea waves with the promenade and coast just metres away. The buffet breakfast is extensive. The hotel makes good arrangements for sightseeing. Staff is courteous. Hotel boutique is good for souvenirs, reasonably priced. Well located in the French quarter... More

The best thing about the hotel is its location; you also got ocean view restaurants & friendly staff. The food at Lighthouse is ok, the breakfast spread can be improved too. The pool and staircase needs maintenance. The WiFi is free but the speed can be improved.

Thus is a nice but definitely not a luxury hotel. The size is fare the same is the bathroom. But the big problem is the bed ,small in the length and narrow in the width. There is a nice restaurant on the roof but not a big variety of food. The breakfast is good.

After a long car journey we arrived at the Hotel at 1.30pm and upgraded to a sea facing room. We were told that we were to be given a suit. It was not available at that stage so we went to have the Sunday Buffet which I can highly recommend. Eventually at 2.45 we were shown to our suit which... More
