Was on business trip, & booked by my TA, but it was a very nice hotel. Decent staff, rooms, Food can be a little better, but still a good place to stay.
They told me that few parts of movie Talash (Amir Khan/Kareena) was shot in the hotel.
Very near to main area of Pondicherry.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

I have been to Pondi before but it was my first stay in this hotel. The reception gave us a warm welocome and smooth check in (took just 5 mins to check in). The staff was courteous and friendly.
We got our complimentary breakfast coupons at check in itself. The rooms were clean, spacious, well decorated, and comfortable. The washroom was absolutely clean and provided with hand and bath towels and other toiletery things. The breakfast was just awesome and it made our day. They also allow us to stay for 2 hours extra over checking out time.
All in all, it was a pleasant stay at Annamalai.

Stayed here as a stop gap since the resort we booked could not accomodate us. We searched a few hotels and were devastating unless someone directed us to this hotel. First impression was indeed a decent hotel but surely didn't feel that the costs and hotel ambiance matched. since this was the best amongst the few we saw, checked in. Check in was indeed quick. Service is pretty decent. In room service is quick and very courteous. Food ordered in the room seemingly was excellent compared to the breakfast which came along with the room price. Breakfast spread seemed very nomimal but tatse was a disaster. The hotel has a swimming pool on the roof top, though didnt use it but seemed good. Overall a good hotel to stay as a stop over but surely very expensive.

I stayed at this hotel for two days. The entrance was wonderful with wide space and with enough car parking at the back. I loved the food at this Hotel. It served both veg and non-veg, and they tasted quite good. The hotel room was decent but located in a high traffic area, you can't get to watch sceneries outside. But , it is still one of the best hotel offering stay and food at good price and quality.

We went to Pondy for a business meet and we stayed in this hotel in the month of June.
First thing i was impressed is with the reception. People were very cooperative. Hotel entrance was nicely decorated.We reached very late, the lunch timings were closed. Still, they could manage to get sambar rice and curd rice as per our request.

The rooms, were bit small but the furnishings were very gud.
Reg the food, good quality, authentic south indian dishes were provided. Best is the curd rice that tasted YUM. !
Location wise: Though this hotel is located near to the market place and has gud access to beach and inside Pondy but you would miss the view of seaside.

For a shorter period, this is definitely a gud stay

Room Tip: Rooms in the first floor were gud

This place is a dump. I stayed for only one night. I slept in the bed with dirty linens, had my clothes on and left the lights on. The room was dirty, dingy and warn out. The bathroom was disgusting, with mold in the shower everywhere. The toilet stunk like urine. This room wasn't any better than a grass shack on the roadside. The only good point was quick room service and decent food, pizza anyway. Traveler beware!

Room Tip: Don't stay at this hotel.
