“Bait and switch beware”
Reviewed January 9, 2011

We booked this B/B by looking at their website and requested specific rooms as per thier listings. Hotel insisted on getting full advance and we obliged as it was peak travelling season in Puducherry. The hotel refused to confirm receipt of advance inspite of several requests,
When we arrived at the Hotel the owner Lalit Verma switched us from the booked site of the hotel to some really dirty horrible hole in the wall guest house, which was not part of the deal. There was no power through out the night and no back up generator either, leaving us to deal with the mosquitoes and the sultry night.

A word of caution for would be travellers to be wary of this place's sharp unethical practices.

Aurodhan is a beautiful guest house . Rooms are amazing ( i love the pink one) . The terrace offers a magic view of Pondicherry. You are totally independent with a free access kitchen .In the same time the people who works there are helpful . Lalit ( the "boss" ) makes a friendly atmosphere. He can help you to organize your trip, find a good restaurant , a celebration , a concert . I really enjoyed my stay there .
