Anandha Inn, Pondicherry
154, S.V. Patel Road Pondicherry
Pondicherry is beach city with spiritual touch and international citizens. My purpose of the visit was official. My stay at Anandha inn was comfortable. Staff are courteous and prompt in service. Food was tasty with lot of verities. Auroville is a place one must visit and experience the magic of meditation. Pondicherry beach is well planned and landscaped. A real flavored coffee is available in beach.
I stayed at this hotel with a group of friends. The overall experience could have been 10/10 if their front desk staff knew how to behave/talk to customers. As we had booked 3 rooms, had called the hotel on the day of arrival plus informed them to give us close by rooms, they still didn't care to do so. Instead the front desk staff said "you are a young group you can manage to walk to each other's rooms". This sort of hospitality is unacceptable. Moving on the taste of food is average (with exception to desserts especially Creme Caramel, which is delicious) The pool is quite large and well maintained. The gym too has sufficient equipments. Though the hotel is located 10mins (by car) away from Rock beach, it's location isn't a problem, as it's on the main road where you can get autos almost throughout the day. The rooms are neat and clean, with all basic necessities. But the shocking incident was that all are rooms were cleaned (house keeping) in our absence (when the keys were with us and we were out) without our permission. Hence are personal belongings were risked and it's not acceptable that the hotel will use the master keys in the absence of their customers to clean their rooms without their permission. So overall it's a good hotel in terms of infrastructure, but the service/hospitality department is in need of serious training.
Room were ok, bit creepy and there was a cockroach in the room. The breakfast was good and pool was clean and functional. The room service was good and quick, it is located near to the white town (walking distance) and even to the market. The wifi was not reachable in the rooms though. I would recommend the hotel, but with some reservations.
My stay at the hotel was good and it was located conveniently as it is close to city. The staff were ok. The room was spacious, clean and well-maintained with all basic amenities like AC, TV, and geyser working at proper condition. There was a road view from the room. The food quality at the hotel was good. Activities such as swimming pool are provided but there is no sightseeing trip. There is no delay in check-in and checkout process. I would like to recommend this hotel to others. I went my family and it was relaxation trip in month of August 2013.
