The best part of the Hotel was the Restaurant. Mind blowing food I ever had. Its not the quantity, the service and hospitality was amazing. The operational managers are Maharstrain and Guju, so they have cared for the resort. The rooms were so so, but the access to a private beach is good. The resort is cozy and friendly. Foreigners...

This is a terrible option. We drove from bangalore to pondicherry and reached the hotel late in the evening. There was nobody at the reception. Once we checked-in, we found that the walls were stained, linens were dirty, and food was bad. We had made a reservation for 3 nights, but checked out first thing in the morning! The sole... More

We booked our accommodation in this place online after looking up some reviews etc. The first surprise we had was that it is right on highway not exactly far from disturbance. Rooms were not the best, just average, not unhygienic either. Attached vegetarian restaurant served decent food. Good things:- 1) the restaurant cooked customised food for our 2 year old... More

Terrible service, no hot water and there was a grounding problem resulting in us getting electric shocks while touching the taps!! The manager was nowhere to help us out. A regrettable experience. Money could have been spent better elsewhere...

If I start recalling my experiences at this place, people will probably stop visiting pondicherry, not just the neem tree!! We had a very "good" welcome by the electricity wires hanging in front of the gate...Inspite of booking the rooms online and paying the advance on time, we had to wait for 2-3 hours before we got rooms..and even dose...

On arrival at the place (Friday Oct 7th) we started realizing the bad state of the place. The only prompt service, we received was to make us pay the balance amount before we get to realize how...

We reached The Neem Tree hotel at 9.45PM after a 7 hour drive, only to hear "Sorry sir, the restaurant's closed. We close down at 9:30PM". "STARVE" is what ran through my mind! The town was a couple of miles away and was not worth venturing out again in the sweltering night heat of Pondicherry. There was just ONE guy... More

We had made out hotel reservations through makemytrip.com at Hotel Coramandal, however, as the hotel later was found to be 100% occupied, they put up at a hotel called THE NEEM TREE. It approximately 4 kms north of the French colony and if... More
