Reviewed 13 June 2014

Stayed there last September (14-15-16 September 2013) and had booked 2 Deluxe Suites for Rs 2000 each. The rooms were spacious and clean including the bathrooms. Pondicherry around that time of the year was very hot and hence we had the AC running all the time when we were in the hotel. One of the AC had broken down and when we complained they promptly fixed it. They had a restaurant downstairs which serves the same staple menu that we normally get. However there are some nice places nearby for French cuisines. Even though the hotel was a kilometer away from the beach promenade the heat made the walk to the beach a tough exercise. The hotel did not have enough parking space and our vehicle had to be parked in the road as the few parking slots (maybe for around 4 cars) they had were unavailable. The hotel was in the middle of the market area and the suites are next to the main road. I had difficulty sleeping because of the noise outside.

I visited the hotel in March month and it has exceeded the expectation of me and my friends mind set. Really an awesome hotel to stay for all kind like couples, family, friends etc. I am expecting my next trip to Pondy to be stayed in this same hotel. The price is also nominal and worth for it..... The hotel place is also near to bus stand, ashram, beach. It also has Anjappar restaurant in the basement and they deliver food to the room itself. Food is also good and especially for non veg likers can have all kind of south indian spicy foods here to fill your taste buds...

We visited Pondy during last September. We booked Devis Grand online and the check in process was hassle free.
The rooms were big and clean, so was the toilet.
We were pretty happy seeing the room but the problem started after sometime we switched on the AC.
It was leaking, and the water drops were making the bed wet.

Talking about the attached restaurant - we ordered food twice or thrice and I discover hair strand in the food a couple of times.

The positive things about this hotel I found was - it is close to 'The Baker street' .
The rooms offered were big and clean.

Stayed there in May.It was super hot in Pudducherry.Didnt feel like going out at all.Thankfull the AC was working very nicely and I had an awesome afternoon nap.The hotel has a south India restaurant attached to it which seems to be something very famous in Pondi.Went to the rock beach in the evening but the place was dirty.Could not stay there for long.And when we came back to our surprixe the rooms were full of cockroaches.On the beds ,sofa every where.Yuck it was. We called the room service he came with some spay.But the whole time I was scared sitting in the bed as what if I will get more of cockroaches.We ordered dinner in the room itself as we were in no mood to go.I must say the tandoori items were good but a bit over prced.Have statyed there for a day only but didnt have a very good experience.

I personally thank and wish Cleartrip for their excellent consistent support on sourcing best class hotels in terms of Price, Co-Ordination and Information as far as I dealt till today.
Obviously Hotel is Best in class with promised Facility and services, Staffs were Kind and clean home feel rooms. Restaurant and Bar is good, However service consistency is not appreciable. Suitable hotel for couples and close to rock beach, Aurobindo ashram, Botanical garden, Temples, Market and French monumental and architectural wonders!
My rating it Good! Enjoy your time
