Our stay at the Promenade, Pondicherry for a weekend, was a mixed bag. This boutique hotel has a beautiful location right in front of the rock beach in Pondy, and this ideal location and proximity to White town seems to be its biggest strength. Having said that, the service and other amenities are way below par compared to other hotels. The rooms are expensive with practically no amenities provided. Bathrooms could do with better maintenance. The sea facing rooms offer s good view, but can get noisy due to the adjoining beach and restaurant below. Wifi is slow and inconsistent in connectivity. The swimming pool is slightly larger than a jacuzzi with no privacy whatsoever. Buffet breakfast is quite nice but the A la carte menu is not great and the quality of the food isn't as good as it used to be earlier. The biggest disadvantage is that there is no parking in the hotel for guest's vehicles! Considering that so many guests drive to Pondicherry, this is very disappointing. You have to leave your cars on the roadside nearby with no security provided. Driver's accommodation is not available, so coming with a driver is not advisable. Overall, the cons outweigh the pros here. Would not recommend.

The reception staff were very helpful and courteous. However, I expected a better experience specially with the food service. I personally did not like the limited menu dinner. Was expecting a buffet. And the food was also very average.

Opt for sea view rooms, they are perfect if you love the beach/sea. Rooms are small for a star property, but they make it up with amazing service and great food. We thoroughly enjoyed the view from our room, hospitality and world class food. Special mention to Prabhu and others from front office for guiding us in planning our sightseeing and helping us during our stay.
