Cool location & need to improve the service

3.6/5
Posted 7 Mar, 2016

This was my 3rd trip to Pondi and the 3rd hotel I stayed at. Ajantha Beach guest house is a good hotel, maybe a little more than good. However, it wasn't as I expected it to be Location: Located right next to the sea, like literally. You can't ask anything closer than that. You can hear the sea waves crashing in the rocks while you hear some Bob Marley Car parking: They don't have any specific car parking, however you can park in any alley near the hotel and the staff will take care of the rest First look: Not the look what you might expect when you are paying for a more than average hotel. The reception is clubbed with their in-house restaurant which has some 4/5 tables and a small shop Lift: Yes Wi-Fi: depends on the room you get. My room had really bad reception as it's far from the router Food: Veg sandwich came with cucumber and tomato. Not really what I was expecting and worst, it was cold. Tea was okay Hygiene and cleanliness: Quite clean and maintained. There was an issue with the wash basin we were using as the water stayed forever My experience: I had called the hotel two days before the trip and inquired about the rates and 1 day before I called and confirmed the booking. They confirmed 1 bedded deluxe room on my name for 2750 including tax and the guy over the phone was really helpful however, when I reached there it was a different person and couldn't find my name anywhere. After some talks he asked one staff to show the room. It was beautiful and told my friends would like to see it once before confirming. He started speaking in Tamil suddenly from English and stated he can't show rooms multiple times. But we insisted and he reluctantly agreed. We confirmed it. Now he said that the room is priced at 3800 per night. When I informed what I was told he strongly disagreed and said that's a non deluxe room which we eventually went to see and it was (non) 3 deluxe. So we eventually had to take the deluxe room for almost 1K extra The room was good no doubt, spacious and refurnished. But the person at the reception was really rude. I wish they could have kept a soft spoken person No pool, a terrace with limited view of the sea. Room service was quite quick but they provide only soap, so make sure you carry all other necessary things with you as there is no shop nearby given the location it's a good place to stay and in white town(the French part of the city) it's not really too costly. But if you are booking over the phone make sure you ask the name of the guy and confirm once before leaving so that you can avoid these kind of hassles.

Well-maintained hotel at reasonable cost

3.6/5
Posted 18 Dec, 2015

I like to visit places which have a feel to it. It can be a nostalgic feel to a bygone era or a modern one with cutting edge amenities. The place this hotel is located has dollops of French colonial feel. This place is the white town (as opposed to the brown town- the Indian side). So this area has retained a 100 year old colonial feel surprisingly. Walking in the by lanes of the various rue the. Is a experience. Unfortunately most of the hotels here are a bit overpriced So, for this exclusive area this hotel is reasonable. That is the main USP of this hotel which is otherwise, a only a slightly above average hotel The hotel is clean and maintained with a rather pedestrian reception. Even the attached tiny restaurant/ice cream bar is clean and rather plain. But the food is priced very reasonably (good fried rice)for this location. The attached Western food joint (good French fries burgers sandwiches etc. Is better and beach facing The rooms are reasonably large, don't miss the beach facing ones with a lovely sit out overlooking a relaxing view of the beach. The service is good and the staff were friendly If possible come with 4 wheels or hire bikes/cycles for its that kind of place.

Recommendable Hotel with best services

5/5
Posted 28 Dec, 2015

I am a regular traveller to the Pondicherry in need of relaxation along with my family and friends. My first step that comes after that would always be Ajantha hotel, which has very friendly services, safe and secure. I visit Pondicherry only if I get room at Ajantha Hotel, my strong patronage to them is I recommend it to all my friends. I will always be their customer.
