We stayed at Pondicherry from 23-25 January 2016. We were four, my parents, my wife and I. We went on a vacation and wanted to visit some of the places in Pondicherry. We went to the hotel Golden Sun Inn as it has a good location and quite near to the beach as well as to Aurobindo Ashram The room we got was big enough and there was hot water with a geyser. Good bed and an AC. The TV, however, had very few channels and when I first switched it on there was no signal; three people had to take a look at it and we were finally told that they can't do anything. The remote also didn't work so watching the TV was not an option. There weren't even any national news channels The food was ordinary. The room service was terrible. It took more than forty-five minutes to bring us a cup of tea and it was the same story everyday and every time. So we decided not to order anything to eat with the tea as it would have taken them more than an hour. They took more than an hour and a half to bring lunch to the room. Next we learnt that breakfast was not offered through room service, so we had to go to the restaurant where we were first told that it was self-service and a few minutes later we were again told that they had run out of food so they'll take the order and send it to our room The stay was very unsatisfying and the rates were too high given such bad service.
We used for finding the hotel and it was easy. Surrounding was neat, shopping malls and market place we available. The service good it was immediate response. I stayed here for 3 days with friends. The hotel restaurant food was good; it has both veg and non-veg food was available, especially non-veg food is good. The room and toilets were clean and neat, they provided basic amenities which were good. Road side view was there from the room; we three of them stayed in a single and they provided extra bed to us. We travelled to this place in the month of October 2013. The hotel appearance and lighting is good. It is recommendable to others. There is no issue in check in and check out.
Overall experience in the hotel was good. My home town is Mandya. The hotel was located in a convenient location bit outskirts of the city and around 6 kms from the bus stand and railway station. Staff service in the hotel was good and helpful. The rooms are spacious and well maintained with amenities like AC, TV and a geyser in working condition, but AC was having issues they rectified the same after complaining. The hotel is located a bit far from the beach. I stayed in the hotel with my friends on relaxation trip. The appearance of the hotel was good. Taste of food was good with variety in the food menu; both veg and non-veg food was available and chicken pepper dry dish was very good. There were no activities in the hotel. Improve the staff uniforms, as it is not pleasant for eyes. It was value for the money paid.

The hotel is close to the beach, it is surrounded by so many beautiful temples and pubs . The hotel has a decent pub at ground floor and a roof top bar. If you are going with friends you would surely enjoy your stay. The staff is helpful & soft spoken. This hotel was not expensive when we were searching for AC hotels we felt this was too clean and affordable. Over all a good place to relax and enjoy your vacation.
