“The pent house was just awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2011

I went along with my friends to celebrate my birthday which falls on 25th December. The hotel is located very near to the aurobindo ashram and the rock beach. The hotel service is very good. The moment you call the reception and at the very next moment the guy is at the door with the thing..
The cost is just 2950 per day. including all taxes and it is fully air conditioned and with all the facilities you look for. Kitchen , fridge, water heater and all.

The executive rooms are well appointed and Air-conditioning was good. There was a nice array of toiletries and fresh towels.
It was a peaceful nice stay. Absolutely no disturbance at all . I would strongly recommend this hotel to my friends

One of the biggest mistakes we ever did by booking this guest house. The online details and amenities mentioned like Parking, food etc. turned out to be just a gimmick.
World Guest house is located at a place where normally you wouldn't find it if you miss the signboard visible from one corner of the main road. Asking for directions was futile. When we did reach the guest house, the first shock was that they had a small verandah to fit one hatchback car (Exactly). This was their parking area.
The next shock was the rooms. Unclean and definitely not what was expected. No water & no clean bedsheets. When we called room service, we were presented with 2 different menucards. On enquiring we were told that they don't have a restaurant/kitchen and if we place our order, they would buy the food from a nearby hotel and serve it.
That did it. We just asked for a refund of our money for the remaining 2 days and checked out the next morning to a better hotel.

World Vision guest house is just an apartment that has about 4 bed rooms. The rooms were untidy. The ad said there was room service. However this meant that the waiter would go and fetch food from any of the retaurants in pondi, which means that it took atleast an hour each time. The bath rooms were untidy. However there was some privacy.
