Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2011

I have been staying at this hotel since 2007. I make a visit at every 6 months interval and always look forward to staying at this hotel.

This is one of the best properties st Puducherry. The fluency at reception during check in is well approciated. Ambiance in the rooms is cozy. Cleanliness can be experienced all around.

Room service is prompt and the grooming up of employees is well approciated.

Hotel has one typical thali restaurant, which serves a very delicious south indian food. MOrning breakfast is complementary and there is a variiety of items served for breakfast.

Overall the experience is very good and always look forward to stay at this hotel

My biggest complaint about the hotel was its location - not in a very good neighbourhood and there was nothing even approximating sidewalks in front of the the hotel. If you can manage a few blocks of dangerous walk,ing you are in a very good spot. The tuk-tuks are an adventure, but get you where you want to go. Pondicherry is undergoing quite a transformation of its waterfront and should be gorgeous when finished. The pool of the hotel is on the roof in quite a weird flintstone environment. Didn't seem very clean to me. The rooms were fine though and the food too.

Had to travel on business to Pondycherri, needed a centrally located hotel. This is located in area called SARAM,close to all the main street The service was quick and professional. The breakfast well laid out and sumptuous. The service staff courteous. It was good to see the Manager checking on guests personally. The room size is slightly small but if you are on a business trip that really does not matter much. The Sunday Lunch was just great. Good hotel – worth considering

This Hotel was very Nice. The staff and Management are great. Always so helpful and willing to go a extra mile for you.The arrangement for the conference was good. When we faced issues with the projector and the laptop used, support from the staff to resolve the issue quickly was awesome.

Loved staying at this hotel. The rooms are comfortable and stylish (beds are a bigger for family with 2kids), service is great and the complimentary breakfast was wonderful. In fact, our friends were staying across the street Kamaraj salai, but they came to join us for breakfast because it was better! Only complaint was the very busy road, which is difficult to cross .

This is a swanky "modern" hotel, in a good location in the city. Not too far from the market or from the promenade. The rooms are clean, and the breakfast (which was included in our price) was pretty decent.
My favorite part was the terrace. It has a small swimming pool, which was not super crowded, and I managed to do some yoga there one morning.
I have to say though, the art inside the hotel -- especially -- the main hall was quite over-the-top. Also, the hotel itself is quite jarring in its location because its the only high-rise, new building in an otherwise crazy marketplace/neighborhood.
Overall, however, I'm hard pressed not to recommend it, because its reasonable price and location make it good value for money.






Aesthetically though, this hotel
Tell use how was the food quality
