Room was flawless & clean, obliging staff

6.7/7
Posted 8 Jul, 2015

For a financial plan inn, its very much a better than average and flawless lodging with clean rooms, and supportive, obliging staff. The area is additionally great at the side of M. G. Road and Busy Street. The room was flawless and clean. The staff was amicable despite the fact that we had a the idea other route at the season of weigh in. Every one of us were requested that give ID card which I have no where discovered in this way. They took the photocopy of our ID cards and we felt as though we were not regarded as their visitor. However, later we observed that it was a practice anyplace we stay in this city. Simply walk able separation from the Puducherry Beach, furthermore focal point of the fundamental business sector zone.In spite of the fact that the support of bathrooms and fittings weren't up to the imprint, with spilling water all over, that is very little to stress over, as sufficiently here water in the city as self-evident. Of course, stopping own vehicle (in the event that you drive down from Bangalore or Chennai, and so forth) would be a somewhat of an issue around the lodging. I some way or another discovered a spot to stop after two or three rounds around the region.

Good stay and but fine facilities

4.6/7
Posted 16 Sep, 2016

I had been to this hotel in the month of June 2016 with my friends. Location of the hotel was in city. I liked the location is near to the transportation facilities and beach temple. There is also park nearby the hotel it is just walk able distance. The staff at the reception are not co-operative. They did not provide complimentary breakfast. There is no food facility but they get it from outside and provide. The room allotted to me was spacious neat with the amenities in working condition. They water is salty at the hotel. The hotel is suitable for bachelors and the facilities are fine. There is no room locket in the room so it would not suggest the hotel for family. The hotelier’s receptionist and the room boys should improve their behaviour.

Superb Stay, Superb Location!

5.4/7
Posted 15 Oct, 2013

Went to Pondicherry to explore the long stretch of beaches, authentic south indian food and other good stuff, my experience was awesome. Clock Tower Hotel, one of the best hotels, with great location. Beach is at just 2 mins of walk away. You can reach easily with an auto from Bus stand or station. Rooms are nice, airy, clean and spacious. Beds are comfortable with good bathrooms. No issue with food as the hotel has its own restaurant. Hotel has Wi-Fi but can only be accessed from the reception area. Rooms have good LCDs with a cable connection. Room service is good and the staff is very friendly. They will also give you free tips to travel around. Also they can arrange you a bike if you need one. There is a Pizza Hut nearby, which is a must visit. The interior is totally different from others. There is also a Citi Bank nearby with ATM. Auto stand is right infront of the hotel. There is a south indian restaurant on the left hand side road of the hotel, the food is yummy and must eat at very low price. The hotel is located centrally, so you can cover all the main places quickly if you plan your trip well. I would advice you to take a bike on rent, that will help to roam you around. Do carry a dongle so that you can access the net from your room. Don't forget to bargain with the auto drivers. Happy travelling ....

The staff were very helpful, professional and quick to respond. The room allotted to me was spacious and well maintained with all the essential amenities in proper working condition. There was no delay during sign in and sign out process. The hotel was worth for the money and I surely recommend this hotel to other travellers.
