Nice and comfortable. Everything is very much neat and clean. More of a house than a hotel. A property from the time of french colonization with large doors and vintage furnishing and decor. Stay is as comfortable as your own house. Calm and quiet. Breakfast is free but you cant exercise your choice. No restaurant. Although you will have a... More

We stayed for just 1 night on our way back. The location is spot on! Just overlooks the sea and even better if you can get a sea view room. My little on loved the views and we were able to walk down multiple times to catch the sunrise/sunset during our stay. The property is maintained well and has a... More

I always stay at the Villa Bayoud on my visits to Pondicherry. Experience is awesome as the property is located right on the Promenade. However, this time I have some different opinion: 1. The property is more of a guest house and thus normal hotel benefits are not available and one needs to call and get help. There is one... More

I stayed here for my business trip. It is on the Sea-facing (MG road is the name i guess) road. My room was non-sea facing, however, it matters a little while on business trip. The room is huge with equally big washrooms. Washrooms are not modern and may be given upgradation now. The manager is very knowledgable about places of... More

We were allotted a non sea facing room.. but that did not matter - as when you step out from the front side ..the sea is just across the road. The rooms are huge and the furniture is also heritage..old and exquisite. It is a very basic hotel....but the advantage of being very near to Sri Aurobindo Ashram is a... More

Location is good and they have beach facing room as well. Rock Beach is just few steps away from hotel. Staff is kind, courteous & very much helpful. You have many options for lunch and dinner nearby hotel. Cons: Hotel door closes by 11:00PM, so you can't spend time on beach late night which is best part of rock beach.... More

Apart from the location, we didn't find much value/ amenities during our stay. You need to pay extra money for the extra sponge mattress, especially if you are traveling with the kids. Be prepared to carry your own luggage. Overall experience is good.

We stayed in Pondicherry for about 4 days as (a more luxurious) part of a 6 week backpacking trip around India. We were impressed by how friendly and helpful the staff were, the rooms were clean and the bed was comfy! The hotel itself is in a great location in Pondicherry, a nice city to relax for a few days.
