6/10 Good

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.

4/10 Fair

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.

Issues and more issues
This was the only hotel with open rooms left during new year and now we know why. The hotel and service was absolutely horrible. We arrive late at night on new years eve. I had booked the hotel over a month in advance with all of our preferences listed. NONE of our preferences were met. We had asked for non-smoking rooms that were adjacent to one another. We received smoking rooms that were not adjacent to each other. We were able to change rooms to another floor for non-smoking rooms. Additionally, every bathroom had a horrible smell that required air freshener to be sprayed every hour and the bathrooms had no ventilation. The shower heads were rusted and the room could use a renovation overall. Our room card didn't work and we had to call the security guard to let us into our room every time we returned to our room. Our late night new years celebrations ended up being cancelled due to trying to resolve all of these issues. Luckily the hotel reimbursed us for 1 room's cost for 2 nights. However, this was the most expensive hotel stay of all the hotels I have stayed in and this was the absolute worst facility out of all of them. (I stayed in 4 different hotels all better/cleaner and MUCH cheaper than this one). The only positive thing I can say is that the Wi-Fi worked very well.
