We stayed at The promenade - a hide design hotel which is small yet very classy.
Food - excellent spread for breakfast, lunch & dinner....if u r prawn fan, its a great place fo ryou....I being vegetarian enjoyed it thoroughly. they serve mix of continental, chinese, north & south India food. When we staye dthey had Italian these so we had live pasta counter to make your specila pasta along with buffet spread. The restuarant on terrace is a la carte and is a greta plac eto sit and dine however we went for buffet package which is served at ground floor! The crossoints are really great! I will give 4 out of 5 for food. I cud easily put my son i pram around our table during meal time ...so enough space is there...we did table bookings at 9 pm daily even though we were staying there because lot of people from outside also come to dine there...take it as a tip. if u get up early then u will notice they serve BF by 7:30ish....very good time for early risers....
Rooms - go for 26, 27 if u want sea facing rooms, ours was 31 we had sea visible from one side of the window (not bad for a last minute booking!) The A/C is excellent its all wooden inside, bed is made daily, linen being changed daily and staff is very prompt. Bathroom and well kept and any problem was dealt immediately.
Location - Its just infront of sea beach (rocky, non surfing beach)....good for walks after meals. u can hear the sea waves break from ur room!...the light house is just next to it. Though it is non functional now! this hotel is loctaed nicely on the famous roads grid of pondicherry u can't get lost. There is nice wine shop at the back along the same sea beach road..not very far from hotel so u don't need to go to market for booze hunting!
Bonus - We saw Madhavan , he was staying at the same hotel.
Pool - very small. kids will enjoy but not U!
entertainment - Nice Live Jazz being played in the evening and a guy who does good mime! I enjoyed, if u do please don't forget to clap!
bummer - The hotel does not have PARKING! can u beileve that!. we had a big car SCORPIO to park....figure that out!....

We used Pondicherry as a launching place to explore further into Tamil Nadu on day trips.As my 7 and 10 year old daughters have never been to India we wanted a comfortable and safe place to stay. The Promenade met our expectations.

Wonderful ambiance, near the beach. we stayed at Promenade with friends along with children. Nice and comfortable hotel ...with good rooms.The staff were friendly and helpful in whatever request we had. The morning breakfast is the highlight of the stay. The food was amazing.

This is one of the best hotels i have ever been to....... Just next to the beach with a wonderful view...Do go out in the nights when there is no one on the roads....believe me u can enjoy the sea...and if its a Full Moon ..nothin like it.... The Hotel is very near to the shopping district.... The Rooms are very gud and well maintained...If possible try to get a room with the window facing the sea.....
