This is located nearby beach road . Please read this review completely before booking : I have stayed in this hotel ,first experience was okay , but second was worst experience  1) it is not upfront sea view hotel rooms ,its from side balcony sea is visible which can be seen in my video  2) There is an executive room with city view - which was displayed in Agoda website while booking which was 30% to 40% offer , cheapest rate in week , so many ads .BUT IN REALITY THIS EXECUTIVE ROOM HAS NO VENTILATION ,NO WINDOWS LITERALLY SUFFOCATING .I approached the front desk to change my room to city view as they said we don't have city view rooms ,wrongly mentioned in website .when i asked to switch for balcony view rooms , i had to pay Rs 2000 extra per day ,as it was weekend this room was provide the next day at 1530 hours only .so ,before booking call to this hotel reception and book only balcony rooms , executive rooms are not worth for 1000rs also as it has no ventilation ,please look at the video yourself for the better idea .i wish this  review  will be helpful before booking .

Stayed at Lotus Bay View, booking done by easemytrip site. Never use easemytrip for hotel booking. Stay away. I had booked for 5 persons stay and the site clearly showed the room can sleep 5 persons (including kids) but got allotted only a small room with queen size cot for 3 adults and 2 children. Such nonsensical hotel booking never has seen. And easemytrip bookings are routed through another merchant site which is unheard by me. We were charged 10k extra by the hotel for upgrading to a suite. Never go with hotel or easemytrip though staff are extremely polite and friendly and location superb. Go for ashram accommodation instead

To begin with, many pics on TripAdvisor have mis represented the location n view of this hotel. There are 4 hotels in this cluster with Ajantha sea view having full sea view then comes Ajantha beach guest house then its Lotus Bay view and then Mothers Beach guest house. So the view from this place is only partial sea view(attached) but the sit out balcony is worth it if u manage to pull your neck out. It is moderately Priced at 3.5k For the service, its pathetic. The hotel does not have a restaurant (accepted) but nor does the room have any tea/coffee maker. The tea/coffee can needs to be ordered at for at the front desk which is chargeable (doesnt matter when you pay 3.5k per day for a room though). The best part, we had booked for a stay including breakfast and we find the attached pamplet in the room which turns suspecious. On further enquiry we are told that the breakfast will be delivered from outside eatery. We are woken up at 7am by an annoying call in the rrom to ask for out preference(south indian/continental) breakfast although the pamplet mentions timing of 8-10am. On further discussing with the contenets we were ok with South Indian breakfast while the continental 1 had juice(Tang: orange/Mango) 1 banana(fresh fruit). A totally dissapointing 1. And to top it up, the whole breakfast plan does not include tea/coffee. Wonder which breakfast plan in the world has such a stupid spread. They never give details of the breakfast outsourcing service while booking. Staff is very immature and unproffessional.

Location wise this Hotel is good as just crossing a road takes you in front of the sea. White Town is nearby. Lots of eateries are near.Rooms are good. We along with 4 elders went there early morning. Like other Hotels in South India they don't allow early checkin but in the other hotels we got at least one room to get freshen up as we had ladies with us on request but here they at first asked for Rs. 250 per hour though the rooms were empty later when we discussed and agreed for 2 hours they said once taken room can't be emptied for the checkin so they charged Rs 1000 for a single room for 3 hours. As we were tired and having elderly ladies with us we agreed and took the room. Later we were given the rooms on 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor. At first they gave a room beside one of ours but it had horrible smell and we decided to take the rooms on 3 different floors though being on same group. Rooms are good, so are the toilets, bright lights, mirrors. all clean and beds were comfortable and bed sheets were clean too. The stay was comfortable though we were given all back side rooms so can't tell much about the Sea View rooms while checking out we asked for bills for tea, coffee whatever we ordered and there was discrepancy in the bill of around Rs 500. Which when we asked what it was for and asked them to show bill they couldn't show. Over all rooms are good but these staffs will kill the charm. The house keeping young boys were good though.

The place is wonderfully located, just opposite the beach,only a road separates the hotel and beach. the rooms are pretty decent at the price. The cellphone connectivity is very poor, no signals in the room..you have to come out to talk..the wifi is free but the speed is slow...not many choices in the breakfast...a glass of juice, bread, butter,jam and a banana is all that you get...packed in your room..4 stars because the location is excellent and also the staff is pretty decent

The only reason you will choose to stay here is if you do not get any other hotel near White Town in Pondy and you want to stay just next to the beach road. They do not have a restaurant or kitchen. If you order from room service, they will place the order through Zomato or Swiggy and charge you over and above the cost, so better directly order food yourself through the apps. Also, if you are taking your car, beware, they do not have parking and do not ask them where to park, because the place they suggested me to park was a no parking zone. Rather take guidence from the traffic police personnel around and park your car accordingly to avoid penalties.

We had a very bad experience. We did a last minute booking and had a room at the ground floor : no Window, bathroom stuck to the neighboor's and not possible to close glass window in between both bathrooms (could head every move of the neighboor in his bathroom....). Very noisy room in the coridoor (no isolation), considering the price (4000 roupies/night!) The staff was unpleasent and unwelcoming. Breakfast was uneadable and served in bedroom with only one sitting space to eat it (for two people). Staff was not very understanding when we needed to cancel the second night because of plane rescheduled. We do not recommend.

Fantastic location. Service is below average. You may have to ask two to three times for a service and waiting time for a service could be more than 20 minutes. Cleanliness just about average. The television had only Tamil Channels. Initially Wifi was not working. Had ask several time, after three hours some one came an fixed it. After that it was fine. Tested the wifi speed - it is about 4 mbps. YouTube will work fine.

Trip to Pondicherry was a very special just because of this Lotus bay view hotel. Located in the White Town, which is one of the top notch areas of Pondy & just across the beach.It is located inside an alleyway behind Ajantha Sea view hotel. Initially I tried to book this hotel, but it was all sold out for my dates. I think we took a good decision of not changing our dates & booking Lotus bay, as Ajantha Sea view hotel has sea facing common balcony ( which might disturb your privacy), which is not the case with Lotus Bay View. All the sea view rooms has private balcony facing the sea diagonally. Rooms were also clean, tidy & cozy. Standard rooms may not be that appealing, as it has no view. Hence I strongly recommend to book a sea view room if you are planning to opt this hotel. Also, I got good deals from travel portals than the hotel website itself.
