We decided to book this hotel for our trip based on the excellent reviews the establishment had received on TripAdvisor and our first impression was excellent. It is a beautiful and quaint little hotel which has managed to retain a certain old world charm, the rooms are huge and they have all the modern amenities you would expect from any hotel, including free WiFi. Its location is also great, being only a 10-15 minutes walk away from the promenade. Also, the staff were amazing and very helpful, especially the manager, Mr. Fredrick. However,the one thing that soured the whole experience was the fact that the AC in our room (Room 106) refused to work which makes staying in a hot and humid place like Pondicherry very difficult. The staff kept telling us that the AC would be fixed in 5 minutes but it took them 2 days to get it working right. It really was a shame, even their food is excellent, they served Traditional South Indian breakfast and dinner and it was really good food! I would recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Pondicherry with a word of caution though, check your room AC the minute you walk in!
