Had lunch for a reunion with friends. The beef steak was great. The outdoor dining area seemed beautiful, but we did not dare step out into the blazing Pondy sun. Would definitely come back. The view and the ambience was much more relaxed as expected from a fine dining place like this.

It was a good suggestion from my friend's niece to stay in Promenade. The location is just awesome. The property has got a little old, needs maintenance, but their staff are doing great job to serve the guest the best. Special thanks to Arundhati. She was checking on us every now and then if we need anything. Food they served... More

My friend and I drove down from Chennai to Pondicherry on 15th August. After doing a research on tripadvisor we decided to spend time at The Promenade. Was there at the bar (Risque) almost all day long. It was quite a busy day for them. What we realised that they were not ready to handle 15th August's crowd. No one... More

This is a charming building with a mid century feel with interior design and timber but is sadly in need of some serious maintenance in rooms and public spaces. The floors are screaming out for some sanding and oiling. Bed comfort could be improved also.

Best thing about this hotel is its Location, building architecture (Exteriors ), pool area (small but still not bad) and lastly food is good. This hotel is run by Sarovara group of hotels. On our checkin we were greeted and were given room 35. The corridor to the room is really run down and it looks like it is being... More

The place is excellent. Right on the beach road in the White Town area of the town. Buffet breakfast has lots of options. The pool, though small, is good enough for a dip and also has a kids' pool. Walking distance from the Bharati Park and Aurobindo Ashram. The restaurants offer delectable French cuisine (haven't been to France so don't... More
