Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
The staff was very helpful and respectful. However, they need to advise the guests that noise carries so guests need to speak in softer levels especially at night.

2/5 Poor

A Big Disappointment
This hotel doesn't have much going for it: poor location far from Puducherry, mediocre housekeeping, bad maintenance, small rooms, too expensive for what it offers. The second night I was there, at around 1:00am, an electrical plug right next to me bed caught fire, I put it out and call reception. Afer some deliberation, they gave me another room but the AC didn't work. I checked out the following day and didn't pay for that disturbing night.
