Nice and comfortable experience at perfect cost

Posted 7 Jan, 2016

I stayed at this hotel for two occasions and after the very first time itself it became my perfect and number 1 choice for stay in Pondicherry. The hotel is situated at a perfect location, near to the New bus stand and like 1 KM far from sea view. The Anjappar hotel at the ground floor adds credits to the hotel. The rooftop bar is another perfect combination for peaceful and quiet stay at the hotel. The rooms were very neat and clean both the times and the staff is very co-operative and listens to your every need. One can take go to sea by foot from here, so I would suggest the same to the travelers to enjoy the beauty of the buildings and to freshen up yourself. Over-all Devis grand is a very good option for couples/family or friends to chill out in Pondi.

My stay was in Devis Grand Hotel in the month of June 2016 with my friends. The destination of the hotel was excellent. The location of the hotel was excellent and it was near to the transport facility. The appearance of the hotel was very good internally and externally. The check in and check out was done on time. The reception and front office was excellent. The service of the staff in the hotel was friendly and helpful. The room allotted to me was excellent with all required amenities in working condition. I ate food inside the hotel it was very good in quality and taste. There were activities in the hotel and it was very good. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.
