Hi, we stayed with our children at the hotel and booked the most expensive suite. The suite was a joke because it was one room with a small area where they had a sofa. Next to the kitchen on the roof top. Breakfast would be over before time infact my husband lost his cool because when we arrived at the breakfast nothing other than some bread was lying. The place is also overrated. I would recommend staying away from the main city in some place like DUNE resorts. The service is bad and it is overpriced.

Having been to Pondicherry for a short break, I was looking for a hotel that was efficient... What i got was not only efficiency but real warmth from the hotel... The reception for more than informed of the places to go to - were helpful in arranging it...
Rooms were well spaced, had a great view of the sea... recommend this property highly...

I have been to Podicherry several times and have stayed at the Promenade before, which I quite liked. However this year I traveled with my family during the Christmas vacations and i have to say that the hotel has taken a turn for the worse. The service is extremely poor and the food at the roof top restaurant was the worst food I have ever had in a very long top. To add injury to the salt the food was overpriced, stale and it took 4 phone calls to get the manager to come and talk to us. In the end we asked the restaurant to wrap the food and we gave it to the dogs.

Really its a very good place to stay in Pondicherry. Its in the French colony & has an excellent sea view.Rooms are very classy with all modern facilities(AC,Mini Bar,LCD TV...).Have dinner in the roof top in the hotel,it's breezy & has en excellent view of the sea.Food is also good.If you want to stay in the best hotel in Pondicherry then go for it but the tariff is also very high.Now I think its 7500Rs/Night.Try to get Sea view room.
