Good location but no restaurant

Posted 10 Mar, 2017

I stayed there in the month of June, when I was on a holiday trip with my friends. The destination was good and the rock beach was the best part of the destination and the hotel location was good as it was near to rock beach. The reception was very good as the staff's were friendly and co-operative and I had booked the rooms on the spot. The rooms were very good as they were spacious, neat and clean and the service was good as the housekeeping was excellent and for water and all we just needed to call and they use to get it. The Wi-Fi was available and it was complimentary and I suggest that hotel should build a restaurant in the hotel and provide complimentary breakfast.

My visit to this place was in September 2016 with friends. Online and spot bookings were available. Hotel was located in city and can be reachable without any difficulty. Appearance of the building was new and good ambience. Front office service and behaviour was very good. Staff behaviour and service was good and on time. Room was well maintained with all the amenities. Food facility was available in the hotel. No other activities were available for refreshment. Complimentary Wifi was available.

I was looking for a one night stay in Pondicherry. And I found this hotel in search list so I thoght to take a risk over here. Then I booked a room online and next day when I visited there , they gave a warm welcome, I liked that. When I entered to my room, i got surprise as it was well maintained with good smell. It was Worthy to stay in affordable range. Thanks to dhanlakshmi residencies team for maintaining it to a level. So that we can again book a room there. Please maintain the same environment without fail.

Spacious rooms and courteous staff

Posted 2 Feb, 2015

Went in unreserved in a weekend with family. After search called up this hotel while on the way from Chennai at 10 PM. The manager called me back with 15 minutes and managed me 2 rooms. Reached hotel at 2.30 AM. Though the door was closed, when knocked the manager woke up and let us in. He had prepared meal ( chicken curry and veg fried rice ) for us ( On my request) which was life saving. The manager was very courteuos and helpful. Staff was OK. But rooms were pretty much clean and well maintained at that price. Though its bit off the beach side, its at heart of the city, with market place right next to it. Promenade is exactly 1.3 Kms and Railway Station 1.6 Kms and Bus Station also around 1.3 Kms. Water provided is R.O, so no need to buy unnecessary water bottles. Great place to crash in on budget. Tariff for double occupancy was 1.2K-1.3K depending on the room. Extra person charged at 200. Taxes extra. One night for us ( 2 rooms and 5 people) costed us 2990 including taxes. Accepts Credit Card and most important 24 hours check out. Would recommend to all budget goers.

Have very friendly and helpful staff

Posted 2 Dec, 2013

It was quite nice to stay there. Very good experience with the hotel. The faculties over there was very friendly and helpful. They give us information about the cities and place must watch and give us a route map which will help us to chart our trip in the city. There was lots of place near by to explore. Like beach, museum, cultural centre etc... These destinations were only in 1 km surrounding.
