Annamalai International Hotel

but once inside the din of the outside does reach the residents. The executive rooms are well appointed and the central Air-conditioning was good. There was a nice array of toiletries and fresh towels.
We enjoyed the sea food at their restaurant and also their complimentary breakfast which was a decent south Indian spread. Surprised to see calorific sweets as part of the breakfast menu.
The front office manager Mr Vimal was courteous and welcoming to all the guests. The one thing that struck us here was that the staff were always available for the guests without being overtly obtrusive.
This is a hotel we would well recommend to visitors to Pondicherry.

Nice spacious rooms. Interesting lobby design and decor. Complimentary breakfast with good south Indian food. Can add more continental flavour for guest from other regions. Good central location with adequate car parking.

I traveled to this place with my family. Booked through Cleartrip.com, no hassles. Fast & efficient check-in, got rooms as desired (1 double, 1 twin). Stayed 2 nights in all.
Rooms are spacious and comfy, with in-room TV, kettle, A/C, wardrobe, bathtub, mini-fridge, etc. The included breakfast was good and sumptuous.

Pros: Well-located in Pondy, courteous and efficient staff, equivalent to 4* hotel facilities.

Cons:
1) Outside of the included breakfast, restaurant charges are quite high. Meal portions are hardly generous and quality of food is so-so. Definitely recommending eating out (except for breakfast).
2) Parking in evening can be a hassle, especially if there is a function going on, but you can usually find a spot by late night.
3) The toilet exhaust in my room was either malfunctioning or was ineffective, leading to malodorous loos for a while.
4) Fairly loud piped 'lobby music' outside the room as well, but the staff did switch it off when I complained.

i selected this hotel because of the reviews on tripadvisor and i wasn't disappointed at all. its kind of in the city. the beach is 2kms away from it. so if u rent a bike, which is a must, its a 10 min ride max. rooms are really spacious. we were in a standard room. we got 2 bsleri bottles n coffee maker n breakfast complimentary. the ac was a bit too cold for my liking. sheets were clean and housekeeping was good. the bathroom i felt could be better.it wasn't unclean but there were marks n scratches in the tub which could be taken care of. pool was very clean. we had a good time there. i never use complimentary toiletries so dunno abt its quality. tv was a lcd wit all cable channels. we got a newspaper each morn as well. breakfast buffet is very ok ok. lots of udipi stuff n bread butter.no live bread/egg counters.little disappointed.coffee was great though. they also arranged a cab at a reasonable price from pondi-chennai airport. overall really nice. go for it!
