I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. Booked it a month in advance on phone. Room was ready before arrival. Staffs were friendly and helping.

Pros:
Clean,Nice, Beautiful and Cozy Rooms
Friendly and co-operative Staffs
Central Location
Room Service is good, Good south Indian Food is available from Karai Restaurant at the ground level at same price.


Cons:
Opt for rooms which are on other side of main road else forget about sleep in early morning. I am an early bird hence didn't affect me.
Waiters are bit impatient, expect you to answer the bell within 10-15 seconds. (Lesson to manager)

Room Tip: Choose a room which is on the other side of main road.

I recently been pondicherry and it was a last minute plan, so I couldn't get any good hotels. Then one of my friend suggested this hotel and I was very reluctant to go there. But for my surprise, it was very clean and very good. The room was cosy and neat. As the restaurent is also attached, it was very comfortable for us to get a good non-veg dishes. I felt it is more than worth for its price.

Room Tip: rooms on the road side view is good

I stayed at this hotel for a two days trip to pondy. The room was much better than the rating the hotel gets on various sites. But a warning to guests who feel tired after days roaming around and try any meal at the hotel restaurant. The food is horrible. Not only they not cater to what you have ordered, the food is cooked maybe by non-professionals. No matter hoe tired or lazy you feel, go out and have your meal. This majorly eats up the good things going for this hotel
