We stayed here for a night and an extended 2nd day, had booked two rooms.
It was a family visit (with our son and parents) and throughout we enjoyed our stay very much.
They have two swimming pools (part of the same pool area) with one for toddlers so our son had a great time. Water was clean and we enjoyed jacuzzi, steam and a complimentary foot message at the spa. The Spa services costing are a little on the higher side though.
They have a small but decent gym as well.
The breakfast was complimentary and good, the staff courteous and well trained making our stay very good overall.
They do not have travel services but the front office desk can provide you with travel info and there is an auto stand diagonally opposite the hotel in you want to enjoy Pondicherry by an auto.
Located centrally, its near to the station, Promenade and even Chunnambar (Paradise) beach.
We got a good deal on Expedia offering good savings so it was value for money,
They have smoking and non-smoking rooms on different floors so you could make a request accordingly.
Only one suggestion for only some of the rooms:
The disadvantage to some of the rooms is when it is too sunny the curtains are not thick enough to block the sunlight and the room may be too bright even when they are drawn.
Easy to fix this issue - The hotel could use thicker curtains and some good sun screen on the windows to help against the hot sun.
Recommended for families - do look up the various hotel sites for a good deal as several hotels are competing by offering attractive prices to direct the flow of the customers and the prices for the same hotel could vary considerably!
