      4/5 Good

      Great Staff

      Staff was so friendly and they even offered special food for kid. Breakfast was good but it could have been better and It would have been great if the sea view rooms are with a balcony but still, it is worth for the pleasant stay.

      Promenade

      Was looking forward to the spa/massage which was a big disappointment. But the hotel is very well located and has very nice staff!

      5/5 Excellent

      The hotel is very conveniently located. Service is amazing. The Blue Line restaurant was wonderful - we had lunch there and really enjoyed all the entrees we got. The breakfast buffet was also amazing and very fresh! Will definitely stay again if I’m in the area again

      2/5

      I chose this hotel form it’s location facing the beach in Pondicherry. At the time I made the reservation for two rooms, all the sea facing rooms were booked. I wasn’t too bothered as I expected the non-sea facing rooms to be ok, just without the view. That was a big mistake. Don’t stay at this hotel if you can’t get a sea facing room. We were given two rooms at the dark dingy end of the hallway on the second floor. The rooms had a partial side view of the sea if the wooden shutters and doors were opened and you and stuck your head out. My parent’s room doors didn’t open so they didn’t have this as an option. The bathrooms are dingy and there is no light I’m the entry area. The overall look of the rooms we were given was a bit shabby and rundown and the dark hallway was the same. The paint didn’t look fresh and it was poorly lit. I walked to the other end of the hallway which had a sea facing window at the end and noticed that the front half of the hallway was much brighter and better maintained. The rooms on that side of the hallway all had the same view of the street and partial sea view. I was quite upset with the rooms we were given. The hotel was fully booked and the manager on duty told me they had allocated the “best” rooms available. When asked why they didn’t allocate two rooms in the lighter brighter part of the hallway, he had no answer. Poorly trained staff and old looking rooms make this hotel a big no-no unless you really want to be near the beach.

      4/5 Good

      We really enjoyed our stay at The Promenade. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Food was excellent. The room was very comfy and quiet. The hotel itself could use a small renovation/freshening. We hated the air freshener they sprayed in the room. We would definitely recommend staying. Tips: You can grab a tuk-tuk to Auroville for a flat 300 rupees (we tipped him well because at that price they are not making anything). Make an appointment to see Raj Nivas (2 min walk). It’s a bizarre tour and you might get to meet Gov Kiran Bedi.
