Mother Sea View Residency
Ranked #97 of 155 Pondicherry B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We were a family of 5 so we had taken the top most room with 2 king size cots. This room is almost on the terrace and you get a beautiful view of the sea. Rooms are good, spacious and clean. Service is also good. Economically priced. Its on the Promenade sea shore. Staff is cordial.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 404. it has 2 King size cots. Beautiful sea view. It also has a sit out area.

I stayed at the room at ground floor. The room is fairly sized but has got no external views. Bed, AC & bath were good but not lavish as its more of a budget accommodation. Biggest positive is that it's located next to the sea, so the evenings get happening around the hotel.

We were happy to get rooms here at very short notice. The biggest advantage of this place is the proximity to the sea and the restaurants and sea view from the hotel room. Rooms were decent & staff were nice & friendly.

We went pondy on Feb 1st 2014 from Bangalore. Reached there by 2PM. tried to get rooms at some homestay. But all were full. So tried some hotels and they were also full. At last we found this place and they told they have 2 rooms on 2nd floor. We were 4 adults and 3 kids. So we took those 2 rooms. Rs. 1800 INR per night for one double room.

Pros: Room was clean. Bathroom was big and clean. Had TV . AC was good. Bed was good.
Cons: AC is set to 20, we cant increase or decrease it. Parking was the main problem for us. We were on 2 cars and they dont have parking area. We struggled to park our car.

If you going to roam around the city and using the room just to sleep then this is good. If you are planing to spend more time in the room you planing to book, then stay away from this place.

Thanks

Room Tip: I think some room have small balconies. we took one in 2nd floor. room number was 433. It had a balc...

This hotel was our solution to being turned away by its neighbor. The hotel has very little to its merit except its proximity to the promenade. The room was decent though the lock was a bit wobbly. Bathrooms were OK.
We were on the ground floor so can't comment on the sea view rooms above. Though I am not very sure you should call a widow you would have to crank your neck out a sea view.


Ac was a problem at first but it went on to make our room really cold. Overall it is a decent option but you can probably find better accommodation for cheaper price in Pondicherry.

I stayed here with my partner for 4 nights in late July. The en suite room came with A/C and a TV and cost 1000R for weekdays and 1500R for weekends per night (you pay each night’s rent on the day and no reservation was required). The staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel is situated right next to the Boulevard (NB despite the name, most rooms won’t have a sea view). It is by far the best value hotel in the area (we went round all the hotels on the beachfront to compare prices) and I would recommend it to backpackers and budget travellers - you won’t find a better price in the French quarter. The bed was also the comfiest that we found in India.
