“Decent for a short stay”
Reviewed 13 March 2017

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.

I have stayed in this hotel on three occasions. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. It has a nice swimming pool and huge car parking facilities too. Less A/C noise and beds are neat and comfortable. A brisk morning walk for about 5 minutes will take you to the beach. Auobindho's and Mother's Samathi is also very close. Quality of food is also good. Wifi did not work during all the occasions of my stay here even after connecting it successfully.

Room Tip: Wifi net is not working properly in some of the rooms. Ensure about this before occupying the room...

It is a shame that i did not stay in this hotel for these many years of my life. It is excellent in terms of both facilities and food..Can not believe they are 25 years old and yet, have maintained the class. The unlimited buffer breakfast which is part of the package is good enough for a king. The service is extremely nice be it the bell boy of the front desk. Food is cheap when compared with other hotels but very tasty. The pool was clean and was kept that way through the 4 days we stayed there..Overall, big thumbs up for the hotel..

Word of caution, do not try their so called spa. I am sure it is outsourced. The lady literally ripped half my eyebrow and gave me multiple cuts while threading. so, be ware and keep a safe distance from the basement where they are located.

This hotel matched our expectations based on it's photos we saw and the location as well.

Staff at reception was very courteous. We had to shift to this hotel from just our hotel on opposite side, and the staff was really ready to help in early hours around 8. They agreed to keep our luggage safely as we decided to visit other places pending in Pondi, and they readied our room when we were back.

Hotel looks huge from outside, and pretty decent from inside. Thankfully it was completely air conditioned, and we got two adjacent room as we had another couple friends.

Rooms were pretty good. My mistake as I did not noticed that I had booked a standard room with two single beds. Beds were comfortable. Rooms were spacious with all the facilities needed for a small trip to Pondi - mini fridge, sexy mini bar, good cupboard and nice bathroom. Room had a pool view.

The Hotel is located near to Heritage Town which in turn is near the famous Rock beach. So everything was in reach. It has near by bike rentals, market and everything else you need. Almost perfect location.

The complementary breakfast was buffet, with a good spread and exactly what someone would need for a breakfast, serving almost everyone's need - South Indian, english breakfast with breads and butter, coffee and tea. Loved it. Restaurant was little compactly designed but was decent.

What I even loved was the pool they had. Timings - Morning 6 to evening 7, which covers good duration of the day. They also have massage center and a gym as well. Pool was large enough with cold water. Loved it.

We got it as 3+ K per night per room, which was justified with the kind of room, pool and buffet breakfast they offered.

If you are not looking for all this, run your eyes around and you will find cheaper hotels with all you need (hint: zoom in into google maps)

Room Tip: Bachelors - Standard, Couples - Any other. Better hotels nearby
