Horrible Stay
My daughter checked in on May 5th and within just a few minutes she was very uncomfortable because the room was smelling, furniture was rusty and old. However given er long journey she decided to just rest for sometime and when she woke up, the air conditioning was not working, there was water everywhere in the room . She then got her room changed and this time the pillow covers were smelling, they were damn, the head board is dirty and the bathroom has rust. since it was too late to change the hotel she stayed back however it was impossible to stay any further. The pool area is dirty, has moss and fungi alongwith a dirty and terrible stench (like the ones from the sewer), and the Spa is also stinking. Having the opportunity of a free spa, she cannot avail of it because no sensible human being will choose to be in a dirty, stinking and almost hazardous to health environment.

2/10 Poor

We had booked 4 rooms out of which the key for one did not work the whole time and we had to go to the reception and ask someone to accompany us every single time. Another room did not get locked and one of the staff members tried to convince us that it is safe to leave our things inside by pointing to the smoke detectors and sprinklers saying they were cameras. The furniture was moldy and the rooms were dirty. The towels in the bathroom had someone else's hair on it. The lady who checked us in was not courteous or friendly. Very poor experience. Avoid this place.

Beautiful hotel in a great location, but...
This is a beautiful hotel in downtown Pondicherry, close to everything. It was built as a luxury hotel but has not been maintained properly. Our room was large and nicely furnished but so dirty. Lights witches were stained by finger prints, baseboards full of dust, paint was dirty and stained . The bathroom was the worst we have seen in India.
