Anandha Inn Convention Centre & Suites
Ranked #48 of 83 Hotels in Pondicherry
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Was at this hotel last week. Actually we landed up accidentally here. We paid close to 2.5k for an overnight stay here but luckly got an upgrade for 6.5k room in their new wing. The best part is the 24 hrs check in and check out facility. The rooms r quite spacious. The food the serve is awesome too but prices are on a little bit higher side. Just less than 2 kms from the promenade. Wine shop is just at the gate of the hotel. Service is tad slow but managable. Would recommend for sure

It is a kind of hotel that you would want to keep returning. A wonderful place and our stay was pleasant, comfortable and above all worth the money paid. We found the location excellent, walkable distance to the beach and down town. Good food and the service quality was truly awesome. Congrats to each one of the Anandha family. As the very word Anandha, our stay was truly joyful.

I have stayed in the Premier rooms of Anandha Inn on couple of occasions. The Premier rooms are just awesome ! and is equivalent to a Five Star property. The Reception/Front Office is a bunch of very polite and friendly staff. The best part is the breakfast spread, just loved everything on the menu. The Hotel is in close proximity (~10min walk) to the beach/promenade road, Aurobindo Ashram and all other places of interest in the French Colony.

Room Tip: Premier rooms are awesome!

Must say that the hotel is beyond any Indian standards and probably seeks standards of its own. May be the French push. Very good personal and impeccable service. Good food and very comfortable rooms with a very accomodating reception. Will return happily for abbitbof french air.

We stayed here for 2 night and three days in Standard Room. Hotel's interior is impressive.
We travelled from Bangalore so wanted to start our day with good breakfast.
Room: The Room which was allocated to us what net
Breakfast: The complimentary breakfast was good and it has good spread .My Kid like smiley, French fries and fresh juice (There were Orange, Watermelon , Pineapple and Vanilla Milk Shake ) . we too have good option from Idli, Omlate , Dosa , Iddiypam, aalo paratha , fresh fruits , bred butter, etc ( I believe there was 4 option of Non Veg items )
Travel Desk: I was quite happy with Travel support I got from hotel stuff. They spend good amount of time to plan tourist spot and I will definitely give 5/5 for services. In short notice of 30 minutes Cab drive was @ hotel… ( Hotel arrange from outside …but it was good services )
Lunch: I was not very happy with Lunch, we order Panner subji , rice, roti etc..but subji was not good but as we have kids we don’t wanted to room around for food so we are fine with it..
Tea and Snacks: Good
Dinner: We didn’t have daring to try food at Hotel so we went to Surgur. It is 5 minute walk from Hotel and we enjoyed our food…North Indian , Chinese and south indian food….It was awesome food…
Spa & Pool : Spa service was good we enjoyed it and liked it as well.. we almost spend 3 to 4 hours in pool…Pool was very well maintained, Kids and we loved it. Pool and SPA are two main reason to choose the hotel and we are happy about Pool…Kids loved it..Kids Enjoyed it So Paisa Vasaool
I must say, Room services is poor … we order milk for kids and it came after 20-30 minutes. The room was messy so we dial House keeping to clean the room.. we remind them 3 to 4 times and at last someone came to clean the room… ( Hope they improve ..)

The hotel was very good in style and service. The breakfast spread is very good and it has lots of variety. House keeping has done good service . Murugan and Guna is doing wonderful work. Daniel at reception is very fast in check in as well as check out processes. Venkatesan helped us nicely by providing enough coffee and tea packets.

Only drawback is the reception allotted the room at the old block and they have not allotted the rooms in the new block not only to me but also to very onel except if you are a foreigner.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new block are excellent and in style.

It was our first visit to Pondicherry. We stayed at this hotel on a vacation with two other couples. Great Location, Good Lobby, Excellent Check In Experience.

Front Office - Our Room Key got deactivated in the afternoon ( we understand that technology fails sometimes ). We called the reception for a duplicate key OR if somebody could open the door. Nobody from front office came, we gave couple of reminders - still nobody came. Finally there was a House Man around and he assisted in opening the door. We went in and did not bother anybody. It was then in the evening ( after 4 hours ), I called again and somebody arrived then.

Restaurant - We went for Lunch in the restaurant and it was around 3. 30 pm..the lunch session was over. We understand and know the timings. We asked for the all day dining menu from the Restaurant Supervisor / Manager. His Response - " Lunch session is over, we only have burgers and sandwiches ". I told him politely there should be a All day dining Menu and his response " I am telling you what all are there "....I do not expect this kind of response from any class of restaurant. Finally he gave the Menu and we ordered for our group. The Pizza that we ordered had a foul smell which we returned immediately..there was no apology NOR an alternate offer from the same guy. These are basics in hospitality. We had a very bad experience in the restaurant mainly because of the gentleman who was handling our table. We signed the bill and moved to our rooms.

Then the Air Condition failed in one of our rooms around midnight. We called for assistance - The response was " he is coming ", we waited for 10 minutes then called again " The response was same "......Nobody came . We slept without bothering to disturb the hotel staff again.

Swimming Pool was full & busy with Kids on Summer Camp learning swimming sessions - But we loved watching them and appreciated their fitness in the pool. We had a Nice time here.

I will like to appreciate the Chef who was at the Egg Counter in the restaurant. He is a champion.

I expected better service from this property but somehow it did not match my expectation and will think twice before visiting or recommending this property.

Thank You
