Pleasant stay & good food

Posted 25 Dec, 2015

Me and my friends went to Pondicherry only for 1 purpose to party. Well, White Residency was quite upto the mark for that. It was suggested to me by a colleague of mine, who is a local so I made a call. The reservations were done pretty smoothly. You can book a room on your choice, but make sure you do it beforehand because it gets pretty crowded during the weekends and holidays. They called me twice as the trip date was advancing to confirm on the booking. The hotel is pretty close to the main bus stop. You can bargain (If you know Tamil) and convince a auto for Rs. 40. Gandhi beach is some 2 Km away. If you are renting a bike/scooty, Gandhi beach is an easy affair. Make sure you book the bikes before you reach pondy because it's a tough affair after reaching. You can also book it from the hotel. The beds were good, the size of the room was a tad bit small than we expected but anyways that didn't hamper our mood. The housekeeping people are very well-mannered but a little slow. I was bathing and suddenly the water stopped. So, we called the housekeeping and complained. It took somewhere around 40-45 minutes for the entire issue to fix which included calls several times to the reception. They have their own restaurant at the ground floor where you get good food. Taste is the same that you will get anywhere in Tamil Nadu at the same rate. They have room delivery also. They don't really give you supplies like shampoo, soap and all so make sure you carry them. You have a TASMAC(Government wine shop) close by and you can get your drinks from there. As for us, we had hell lot of fun and I am planning to visit Pondy soon again. A piece of advice, try viewing the sunset at serenity beach. It's worthwhile. Overall, I had a pretty pleasant stay at the hotel and would like to go there again provided this time they have water already in their tanks.

Accommodation and service is pretty good

Posted 10 Feb, 2016

Accommodation and service is pretty good and decent for the tariffs of the rooms. The room boy service (especially for food items as the restaurant is right below lodging) is very good, helpful and quick. Very much satisfied with the overall service by the staff and servicing.
