The moment you reach Pondicherry you realise this is unlike any other town/city of India. The French have left an inalienable mark on the streets and architecture of Pondicherry, while the entire place resonates with the tranquility/calmness of the influence of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Staying in Executive Inn was a similar experience where we were touched not only by the peace/calmness of the hotel but also its warmth and hospitality.

First impressions on looking at the hotel is that it would be like any other boutique hotel, however, travellers be warned you cant be more mistaken. Not only are the rooms/toilets/linen clean but the rooms are quaint and pretty. What separates Executive Inn from any other hotel of its class is the personal touch provided by its owner Mrs Beena Sureka who remains available for her guests 24x7. She will not only try and greet you every morning for breakfast but will also make it her personal duty to ensure that your stay in the hotel is more comfortable than staying at your own home. She is a no-nonsense woman at the same time it will be impossible for you to leave the hotel without having befriended her..:)

For travellers wanting to enjoy the Pondy sea breeze and also wanting to be in close proximity to the white town/Ashram; Executive Inn is the best strategically located hotel. Finally, for people who think it is impossible to find good north indian food in the south, please do try the hotel restaurant , you will be wonderfully surprised. As a final sign off our personal experience is that the human touch makes all the difference, that is where Executive Inn scores all the points.

Room Tip: If you want to enjoy the pondicherry sun or the cool evening sea breeze then go for the rooms on the top floor!

We were two families on a leisure trip to Pondicherry for a weekend. I was surprised looking at so many positive reviews on Tripadvisor and really wanted to take a chance. I should say they truly lived up to our expectation, or in fact, exceeded our expectation.

We booked two Deluxe Suites on the ground floor. A decent ambience that was welcoming. The place was very clean, neat and comfortable. A good night sleep is assured. Bathroom was clean with basic toiletries included.

There is a multi-cuisine restaurant 'Food Fun' in the hotel. We ate here twice apart from the complimentary breakfast, and both the times, the food was really good. It took a while to get the food we ordered, but since we had a lot to chat, we didn't really mind the delay. Complimentary buffet breakfast was good too.

The check-in and check-out was smooth. The people at the reception were very warm and helped us with directions, suggestions for sight-seeing, routes and so on. Really appreciate that.

The place is close to Aurobindo Ashram, Manakula Vinayagar Temple, Rocky Beach, and the French colony. ie. walkable in about 5-10 minutes max. So a very nice location indeed.

Overall, our stay at this place was very memorable and we are sure to stay here again if we visit Pondicherry.

Room Tip: 101, 102 and 103 are Deluxe Suites on the ground floor. With kids/aged people, it is good to book these rooms.

Executive Inn gives you the comfort of your own home. The service is exceptional; everyone is very attentive to your needs. Rooms are big and clean with wi-fi connection. Rate is reasonable. The location is very convenient and accessible to important places like the beach and shopping area; Location is safe and secured. You can walk alone at night without worrying. But most of all, the best thing that it has is Ms. Beena who always makes me feel important, always asking how I feel and always make it a point that her guests are more than satisfied. Everytime I have the chance to travel to Pondicherry, i always look forward to staying in Pondicherry Executive Inn.

A weekend to relax in Pondicherry with your family and Executive Inn is the place to stay. The wonderful experience of a comfortable stay and the quality of service had taken us back once again to Executive Inn for the third time over the years. Mrs. Beena plays the perfect host and so is her staff who are very pleasant mannered. Located close to the beach and also to the main shopping area, it's the most ideal place to stay.
A multi-cuisine restaurant which serves delicious food is a treat to your taste buds. It's worth the stay at Executive Inn.... we enjoyed our weekend!!

Stayed for a week in Executive inn. This is a well placed hotel within the French Quarter of Pondy. Its very close to Mission Street, MG Road, J.N Road, Rocky beach and Aurobindo Ashram.

The Hotel Management and staff are excellent and very warm. They helped us with the details with regard to the tourist places at Pondy.

We started for scuba diving at 5:30 in the morning and they arranged pick up and drop auto at that odd hour and packed our breakfast.Also arranged dinner on our journey back home.

The Food, Room Service, Laundry and other services like arranging 2 or 4 Wheeler's are excellent. All these things made our Life Easier.The hospitality and dedication to service was reflected right from the top brass to everyone else in the hotel.

Had a really nice holiday:-) great place to stay if you plan to holiday in Pondicherry.
