A mini European vacation”

decor, service, food

My husband and I left Chennai just before the terrible flooding (Dec, 2015) and were fortunate to be able to stay at de Pndicherry for two nights before heading to Kumbakonam. De Pondicherry is a beautiful hotel built into an authentic French Colonial era house. The manager, Mr. Jayaraj, has been with de Pondicherry for 22 years and his experience is evident. Everything ran according to plan in spite of torrential rains, food in the restaurant was outstanding, and the general atmosphere was calm and relaxing. Very nice stay.

Nice atmospheric hotel. Room cleanness needs improvement. There was lots of dust in the front of the bed frame. Breakfast needs improvement : guests were directed to seat by the hotel lobby instead of the restaurant. The free breakfast was a small fruit dish and some bread with butter and jam, small coffe.

Decent hotel but needs improvement”

First of all getting someone on the phone at the reception desk is a challenge. The cheaper rooms are tucked away at the back on the ground floor. You have to walk through the restauarant area to get to the rooms. Place seemed deserted after 11 pm and it was a bit scary. Complimentary breakfast was not provided as mentioned. I had to make a special request for them to send some breakfast. On the plus side, the rooms are old fashioned and very ethnic. Liked the look and feel of the rooms. Hot water had some issues in my room but it was promised to be looked into. Did not happen when I was there.

A let down”

The location is great, but that's pretty much the best I can say about this hotel. The bathroom smelled awful, of sewage, a stink that permeated the entire room. WiFi only available in the lobby, and it's spotty at best. The adjoining restaurant is really expensive. There isn't anyone at the front after 6pm - the restaurant staff that fills in isn't really well informed. The breakfast is underwhelming - a few pieces of fruit and toast. They charged me a higher rate outside of the rate I got through Agoda (I did extend my stay one day, but begrudgingly so out of convenience of leaving my bags secured while I explored during the day).

We had confirmation of booking and when we arrived there late evening only to find that the hotel had been shut down a month earlier. We had a harrowing time trying to find alternative accomodation at the last minute. It is difficult to trust your portal again for booking hotels. Sorry! And I guess you still dont know it is closed since you are asking for feedback. God knows how many others have been inconvenienced. BTW tried contacting your customer support to which I could not get through!!

J'ai attendu deux heures avant d'avoir la chambre. La chambre single que j'ai eu est minuscule à noter qu'il n'y a pas de photos sur le site d'agoda, sinon je n'aurai pas réservé. Pendant tout mon séjour il n'y pas eu de nettoyage de la chambre et personne n'était présent au service.
