              The room was clean. The 2 cushion chairs were not in good condition. I could see the cushion inside. I called the reception and wanted a better chair and it was given immediately. I can order coffee or tea from room. I can place order for non-veg only. For veg, I need to go to a nearby restaurant. The room rate was on the high side for the limited facilities offered. There is nothing much except a neat and clean room. Lot of repair work needs to be done in the bathroom, chairs in the room.. One can stay in this hotel with these limitations.

              If you expecting a proactive hospitality this may not be a place . It's a decent lodge rather than hotel .. the commode in the hotel was too small, not at all comfortable... If you looking for just a place to stay with no great expectations. Then it's a good place to stay

              Totally Unworthy!”

              We had to choose this hotel when our preferred hotels were already booked due to our sudden travel plan! For the hefty tariff they are charging, the hotel is totally unworthy, I can say! Front desk staff were absolutely rude and inhospitable, they provided us a small room which was totally different from what we were shown while booking (what we saw was a big room with a balcony and provision to accommodate our kid as well), they charged Rs 900 when we asked for an extra bed, the bathroom fittings were leaking, the free breakfast was not good at all, the intercom did not work, they took almost 30 minutes to deliver a coffee to room, no kettle in room as promised in the booking, and much more! Apart from the only positive thing that the hotel is centrally located in WhiteTown (not even bay view), it was absolutely a waste of money! We will never recommend the hotel to anyone!!

              The photos are flashy. But it’s the opposite when you reach there. The staff there is very cooperative. But the property is a big disappointment. If you have a small car, then it’s fine, if u have a sedan or suv, then half of your vehicle will be at the middle of road.. that’s big the parking is. Bathroom was not even clean and hair from the previous guest was there on the commode. The beds and linens was also very old and not clean. The room is also very small.

              Rooms are not clean and they don't have restaurant in their hotel but still they take booking for with breakfast and they want to serve the local roadside food for breakfast. Not worth the price they charging.

              We stayed in a lot of hotels in Pondicherry looking for the best rate and nicest hotel. This Won hands down! The owners, two brothers run this hotel, both super nice and will go out of their way to make sure you have what you need. Even if it's food, fruit juice, new towels, a refrigerator or something simple like forks and knives to eat in. Enjoy your stay. We travel a lot, and we are picky.

              Nothing Great, Lacks Hospitality”

              Location, Car parking, Security

              We were travelling as a group on a long weekend and due to the lack of options, we ended up booking our stay at Lotus. The hotel is located very close to the pondy beach and walkable distance to most of the popular venues in Pondicherry. This hotel positions itself as semi-business but we were not satisfied with the quality and hospitality of the staff. The first people you encounter in any hotel are the ones at reservation desk and they lacked courtesy or basic skills of customer service. We stayed here for 2 days and sadly the most courteous staff of the hotel turned but out to be the security guard. The hotel is somewhat clean but lacks a lot of basic amenities for the price it is charging. I was not entirely pleased by the stay and would recommend to someone only if they do not have any other options and want to stay closer to most attractions.
