First trip to Pondy!
The staff was excellent at what they do! This might be one of the best places to stay in Pondicherry. They dint have parking space, But they have valet services free of charge to park you car in a safe place. IT is exactly the same as in the images, facing towards the beach.almost 4-5 of the must visit places are at walking distance from this Hotel.

Sanjeev, us2 night family trip
The Promenade, Pondicherry
We stayed for 2 nights. TV was not working for the entire duration of our stay. Tough to keep the kid entertained during the evenings. The Swimming Pool was closed the next day till Noon for maintenance. The sofa in the room was broken and the window opened out to a big green net fence. They eventually changed our room after much persuasion. This was a bigger room with a view of the street. However, the TV still would not work. The view of the Ocean from both the restaurants is very nice. The staff are generally helpful and accommodating.
