The staff is very courteous, the interior is plain and simple (white & Wood), looks classy and old school. Situated on Bang on Sea side, my family had a great time here. Must visit if you are looking for a quite... More

Pretty good hotel but the biggest selling point of this hotel is its location. Room are a bit on the small side and the service can do with a bit of improvement as well. Food is good with a decent choice though a tad expensive. Would love to visit again primarily because of its location!

The sea facing room has 2 giant doors that open to a mesmerising view of the sea and the road along it. The room was quite big, neat and hospitality was brilliant. Smiling faces greet you everywhere.

My friends and I visited The Promenade in November 2016. This hotel was exactly what we were looking for. Perfect eye pleasing view of the promenade and the light house. The suites were fantastic.

Absolutely loved my stay in this hotel. The balcony opened to blue sea and the room was elegant. The quality of the service surpassed all other pleasures. The hotel staff went out of their way to serve us. The food is excellent and we did not eat out anywhere. Ideal place to stay in the lovely city of Pondicherry.

I stayed here for 2 days and I must admit that the staff here is the best. Really helpful, warm and considerate. They give you a call in the morning an hour before closing the breakfast to have your breakfast. Anytime you call them they will attend you in less than 5 mins and will ensure things are working fine.... More
