it has enough parking space. Room refreshments are good for family.
Staff is very friendly.
Rooms are clean and housekeeping service is good, though washrooms are not very convenient as water flows from shower area to other place in washroom irrespective of curtain in place.
Restaurant is good and breakfast was very healthy with nice varieties.

I think this is best for small family (2+1 ) considering budget & amenities. Std room are small but ok, no views though..Bfast complimentary was good, Staff & service was good too. We considered this hotel as there were some issues with availability of parking space for hotels near Promenade Beach. Auto to & fro from hotel costed 100 rs each.For Paradise Beach we can take own vehicle. Overall good experience!!

This is an extremely budget hotel. Rooms are very small and all services offered are in very limited quantity because top priority of Hotel management is economic offerings.
Very small hotel, small rooms, poor ventilation and only one small lift.

The few positives for the hotel is extremely courteous staff, always ready to serve to the maximum extent with whatever limited resources they are being provided by the management. Hotel is clean and room service is ok.

I want to make a special mention about Mr. Pawan Kumar, the Guest Support Officer in the Ginger Hotel Pondicherry. He is very good, soft spoken, polite, humble, courteous and gem of a person. He is always ready to serve and help even beyond his capabilities. He is a perfect role model for people, who want to make their career in service industry. I wish Mr. Pawan all the best and all laurels in his career and life. He knows how to convert Guest's satisfaction into Guest's Ecstasy. I rate him even beyond 5 star.

I stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms are so small, there is not proper place for your luggage. Extreme level of cost cutting as they provide water bottles only on demand, location of the property is good, but view of the rooms are terrible as it opens to a drain near by.
Staffs are who care attitude, i stayed here for a new year, they didn't even bother wishing anyone happy new year with a smile, forget anything else.
Coming to breakfast, horrible experience dosa and idli were so sour that it's like a week old batter, when you complaint the staff they simply deny saying it's fresh we can't help.

Just go for any other rooms rather than opting for this hotel at this price.

I thought of travelling Puducherry in a month of November and that's the decision I regret lifetime, If you love travelling and if you are a passionate traveler then please avoid travelling to Puducherry from August to November Month. November month as predicted was showing rain but we thought of enjoying rain along with sight seeing, but it didn't went the way we thought of. Most of the time we spend our day in hotel and whenever it stopped raining humidity touches it peak. Humidity is one thing you should keep an eye while traveling to Sea side area. We fell shortage of cloth because of frequent cloth changing reason being high humidity. You just end up drinking drinking and drinking. During our stay i.e. November 1st week Humidity was around 80 degree.

Points to remember

1. Carry Umbrella or Raincoat
2. Carry your own water bottle so you can refill it time and again
3. Select Hotel with best AC system (as per my suggestion) as it is very hot during day time (Temp 35 degree)
4. Carry skin lotion, moistening cream, sun protection cream
5. Avoid going very close to beaches during day time (my suggestion don't under water)

We find the great hospitality by Debatri and the team. whatever we asked to them they try to accommodate whether they have it with their Ginger hotel facilities or not . Its was birthday trip, I requested them to do some surprise room decoration, after co- ordination with their vendor it was seems impossible also very expensive... But Debatri and her team took beyond and above initiative to make this possible.
Which was a mesmerizing moment to my husband.
Most important thing we left the hotel and when we are in Mumbai we received a call that my husband left his brand new Skechers shoes. Again they co- ordinated and arranged a courrier for us.
Overall giving 5***** for the Ginger staff and their hospitality.
Special thanks to Debatri, Kunal, Pavan and Akhil. 🙏😇🥰

The stay was pleasant. The staff were courteous and very professional, especially from the housekeeping sections. The only downside to the stay here was the food. I felt the food was not up to mark and the kitchen was short staffed to handle our, rather large, group.
The gym in this property is bare minimum. I would not even call it a gym... It can hardly fit a crowd of 5.

We stayed in Ginger Pondicherry in Dec First week. We had booked for 2 nights and check-in time was 2 PM. We reached the hotel by 9 AM and was planning to keep the bags at reception and roam around till room becomes available. To my surprise, the staff handed me room key :-)
Our return bus was in the evening, so checked for late checkout. It was available for 25% of room charge. At the time of checkout they surprised me again and did not charge for the late checkout.
Room was a bit small, but clean and neat. Again the staff suggested to go for twin room as it will have more space than double room.
Breakfast was good with very good vegetarian options (We are veg). Coffee was really good. The seating area is well maintained with paintings of all the places in Pondicherry.

Special thanks to Ginger hotel staff Febroina, Uraj and Raj for making our stay wonderful.

Shocked to see cigarette buds in a no-smoking property’s staircase area wasn’t even bad but the reply I’ve received for the same from Mr Jagan, so called manager was appalling. Upon complaining about the above, he’s replied that, he can’t do anything about it as he’s got no idea how to follow the rules by warning those who smoke in the premises to be sent out of the hotel as they would demand for a refund. I have even asked my doubts about Ginger being a property of the Tata with the clear Business Hotel standards, how does anyone stand to watch the rules being broken, especially post COVID-19, no matter what.
Especially when there’s a Security personal who knows how to rudely knock the door of my room when I was having a loud argument inside my locked room with my family, I wonder how safe I’m at this property for the rest of my stay this week.

Heavily disappointed with the way this matter is looked upon, never would return to Pondicherry Ginger in the future & wouldn’t recommend anyone to step in here too.

Have stayed here 6-8 times over the last decade.
It’s generally always clean, well maintained n professionally managed. So as far as stay is concerned I know what to expect.

Note: Omlette (Masala and Plain) is Free with complimentary breakfast (made to order) but this time the staff did not mention about it at all - not good on their part. Also no note for tea or coffee so you don’t know which jar contains what./.

Answer from Subhransu K D
Pondicherry is a small town, cabs, auto even self driven two wheelers are plenty. The b nearest beach is Serenity beach about 2 to 3 km but all beaches are nearby but you can pass serenity beach and go towards auro beach and auroville. The main beach in pondichery town i.e. rock beach is only couple of kms away. Paradise beach is on the other side of city i.e. south is about 12 kms. The distance from city center to this hotel is about 2 to 3 kms.
