          Fantastic”

          Stayed there for 4 nights. Old property but they have maintained well. Clean rooms and bathroom. I enjoyed my stay. Since lock-down they started giving limited breakfast served in room, hoteliers should restart the breakfast at the restaurant.

          Really a good hotel in Puducherry for stay with family or friends... the rooms are well maintained, neat and clean. Checkin was easy and the staffs were friendly and helpful. Had tandoori food dishes from restaurant, the taste was nice.... beach access and park areas are within a kilometer. For breakfast, they served traditional south indian items. Overall, the stay was comfortable and happy.

          Good location and worth the money”

          Travelled as family with 2 kids for a day trip. Pros - Location, front end staff, value for money, hot complementary breakfast (poori, Pongal &vada) , 24X7 hot water. Cons - Nothing so bad, however few things like 5-6 car parking only available and I was lucky to get my spot, Restaurant cannot be accessed with kids as it has bar attached. Overall a good experience for the cost.

          Good for Budget”

          This is very good for your budget. I booked this hotel through Agoda with best deal. I planned to visit Pondicherry from 21.11.2021 to 25.11.2021. I booked this hotel 21.11.2021 to 23.11.2021 for first two days. Because I did not know about this hotel. So I just taken a chance. After stayed in this hotel I felt good so I booked it another two days from 23.11.2021 to 25.11.2021. Good location, good staff behavior, cleanness room, daily house keeping, Parking facility, cooperative reception staff. If i get a chance to go to Pondicherry I will prefer this hotel. Disappointing points are room refrigerator and telephone instruments was not working though i informed reception staff. Otherwise Good

          I have booked a deluxe room but it is not quite spacious. The cost for one room is quite higher in comparison to the facilities. Most importantly, make sure you read the cancellation policy as we could not altar/cancel the room after payment. Over-rated hotel, not worth for money!

          Not a family hotel”

          I happened to book this at the last minute. As a solo traveller, I did not have any issues, however, I realised this is a destination for those who wish to take a quick weekend Booz vacation to pondy. It is pretty shady and the facilities are a bare minimum. I had to use a sanitiser to make sure I can use the bed and other amenities. Book RKN Grand if possible, it is a family-friendly hotel.
