We friends were doing a bike trip from Chennai to Puducherry and back on the diwali weekend. We checked into the Clock Tower hotel as one of the friends in the group had stayed there earlier.
The first thing one notices about this place is the simplicity of design and the functionality imbibed in the whole place. Located hardly a kilometer away from the beach, this is a cozy place with the right mix of the modern amenities and colonial French architecture and furnishing. The French windows opening into the balcony and the roof-access in the cyclonic drizzle were amazing.
The only negative was the fact that the A/C condensation pipe dripped into the loo. However, the service is good and the people are polite and that made our stay pleasant.
