“Average quality and poor value for money”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

- Breakfast menu was good.
- The staff has a less then average understanding of cleanliness (especially when you compare the cleanliness with the kind of money that you pay for the room).
- Considering that Pondicherry is a coastal town, ensure that the Air conditioning actually works. In our case, it turned out to be a real nightmare. I checked few other rooms. It turned out that the A/C , in general, cannot cool below a certain level which was quite inadequate in peak summers.
- The hotel staff gave us incorrect information that our room was a non smoking room while the reality was that the entire floor was a smoking floor.
- Unfriendly staff: When I called the hotel to find out how much a taxi/auto would approximately cost (we were coming from Chennai) by bus, the person simply refused to give us the information.

Room Tip: A room which has a view of the pool and on higher floors is recommended. The hotel is located in a d...

We stayed at Anandha in october 2012. Rooms are spacious esp with kids we need bigger rooms.
Breakfast was awesome covering a wider variation. The best part is the location of the hotel. We stayed there for 2 nights . Property worth spending money.

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.

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 ..)
