You travelguru team has screwed up my holiday. You have not even informed me that the hotel has accomodated me in different room for last night!
The Majestic view of the Bay of Bengal overlooking the hotel was a temptation enough for me to put up there for a couple of days.And i must say i was anything but disappointed. The hotel is easily accessible and is right on the beach road (Gandhi Statue, Goubert Avenue). The vicinity is so very nice and my room was well aerated. Positives: There were lots of them. The room was absolutely spick and span. The rest-room was neat and had the provision of running hot water as well. The room, though not very big, was spacious enough for 2. The management had also provided a small refrigerator so that we can keep our beers chilled. A balcony with a table and chairs to sit for 2 was just abour perfect for that high tea. They also have a separate parking lot for 2 and 4 wheelers. For those who want to watch TV, a descent LCD makes up for good viewing. Room service was prompt and the staff was very helpful Not so positives: Check in time is very rigid. 12 Noon means 12 Noon unless the previous occupants vacate early.So we were made to wait for about 3 hours before we could set ourselves in. But they ensures we did not have to carry our luggages around. A big drawback is the lack of a in-house restaurant. Though they said on phone they had one, i guess the one who answered the call was unaware of the meaning of the term "in-house restaurant".But once in Pondy, we wanted to delight our taste buds with non-indian food, so the in-house restaurant was not a issue. They serve beer only and that too KF.But again, you may bring booze from outside and enjoy at the room. Room rates are modest and truly affordable. Places of interest are nearby. Rly Station too is a stone's throw away from the hotel. Overall, the experience was a great one and i would definitely recommend jaunters a stay at the hotel.

The hotel is located bang on rocky beach. Location is very good and price is decent as per the location. They have some sea facing rooms and non sea facing rooms as well. The rooms itself are clean. Not overtly clean, but good enough. The bathroom could be better done up. The one we checked into was kinda dirty. We had booked six rooms and we were getting them one by one as if they were giving us the rooms in instalments. They took until midnight to put the extra beds that were agreed upon. The TV has mostly regional channels running. The staff mostly speak on only the regional language. They don't seem very courteous or polite. If you don't have someone speaking the local language it might be a problem in this place. The common toilet is very first and impossible to use. 4 stars are primarily for the location and decent rooms.
The stay was good at the hotel, the only thing bothering me was the lightening in the room. It was to summarise in one word-obnoxious. Way too many lights for the size of the room. Other than that, the stay was good. The staff were courteous. The location is amazing. Being on the promenade, many things can be enjoyed without going too far from the hotel.
Nice Place to stay close to Promenade Beach! Neat and clean with wifi facility! Close to Rocky Beach, French Colony and Aurobindo Ashram!!! Rooms are nice and hotel staffs are good! Recommended for couples and family.
Average hotel, looks renovated recently, near to the beach side but with out proper view. To view the beach you have to strain yourself. Staff were nice except the receptionist, who seems to be busy in some other things. No restaurant, so if you order anything it will be delivered with in an hour subject to availability. Towels were provided, bathroom was not ok as lot of fruit flies was on the roof.
Last minute booking. Got a family room which opened out to the beach. Nice comfortable place. Centrally located in the heart of "White Town. No I house dinning, only tea or coffee is served. My wife and kids loved it. Close to all the eating places.
