I had read earlier reviews and found it to be decent enough and with a better spread of breakfast than the others and what sold me was the discounted price that was available at the time, so I decided to try it.
It was decent enough, clean...but dated. There are 3 other hotels within 1 min of this hotel, so I am not sure about the others, but this one was fine. I got in early around 8am, but could not check in untill 10 as rooms werent available. So decided to have their buffet breakfast which was adequate and good enough with an alright selection and service was fine too..two people cost us INR 650 inclusive of tax.
Rooms were clean, but you could tell it was getting old, everywhere, the cushions, lampshades, the bathroom edges....but like i was saying, if you arent fussy about these things and given the cheap price online i got...it was a bargain i guess, but i cant compare the other 2 hotels in the vicinty.
It was just a 15-20 min drive to auroville and french side of pondicherrry.
So all decent enough.
