At one point I was in Pondicherry 6 times in a quarter and our most recent stay was closer to promenade and in the historical and quaint white town of Pondy. Primarily a French colony historically, this part of town is picturesque and perfect for the early morning and evening strolls. Beautiful French architecture, restored heritage properties and the grid like streets can have you mesmerized enough to forget the upcoming Monday blues The Richmond hotel perfectly fit the bill in every way mentioned above. The hotel has quaint rooms on the first floor and the ground floor houses more larger and spacious rooms. The beds are perfect to crash for a good night sleep or probably after a wonderful session of drinks around Pondicherry in the nearby hangouts Richmond hotel is centered around the Promenade beach, restaurants and cafes of the White Town making it an ideal location for those wanting to live in white town and explore what this french segment of Pondy has to offer The property has really no activities to offer be it indoor or outdoor games. The management is helpful and cooperative Tip: Stay here if you'd like to explore the White Town in depth and soak in the french culture, architecture, food and history.
The Richmond at Pondicherry is a charming property albeit a small one. There is little to fault with the place, even though nothing is fancy but it has all functional comforts. The lobby is small and has a fish tank as well. The purpose is mainly just check-in and check-out which happens within a couple of minutes. Staff is friendly and willing to help . . The rooms are very nice and cozy. We had opted for the family rooms on the ground floor which had a sofa cum bed apart from a double bed and a table. Almirah and minibar were present of course. Everything was very neat and clean in the entire premises The problem with the family rooms is the noise from the adjacent restaurant which is quite a disturbance as sound proofing is not done for the rooms. The buffet breakfast was a small but decent spread of bread, butter, jam, eggs of choice, idli, dosa and Upma. Taste was not bad at all Location is good, as some of the best restaurants are close by and it is also in the better part of Pondicherry. The station and promenade are not far either. Pricing is competitive and if you are a large group like we were, slightly negotiable too. Had a good stay and might stay here again on our next visit also P. S - The rooms on the ground floor get very noisy from the kitchen next door, so please try to take a room upstairs if possible.
Good hotel, good rooms and great food. Although, the service can be a little slow. The hotel is located in the French quarters at a very peaceful location. The rooms are spacious, but if you are booking through a travel operator make sure that the rooms allotted are the same size and specifications as those listed on the website and those you selected. If you do not get a good/spacious room, the hotel might appear overpriced to you, since the smaller rooms are very cramped. So make sure you check before nonpaying online. The hotel has a very good breakfast buffet and staff ensures that you do not oversleep and miss on it The hotel has a bistro which serves delicious food. Very peaceful environment, you can have a meal a glass of wine and read a book. The interiors and the decor is very pretty.
I stayed in the Richmond Hotel Pondicherry with my family in the month of May. It was convenient to locate the hotel and booking system was easy. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. The appearance of the hotel was good, both internally and externally. The staff members in the hotel were responsive and they were prompt in services. The room allotted to us was maintained clean with basic amenities, working properly including WiFi. I ate food in the hotel restaurant and it was good in quality and in taste but bit expensive. There were no activities available at this hotel. The stay in the hotel was value for money and I will recommend it to other travellers. I suggest to hotel management should be improve the food quality and decrease the food cost.
Everything about this hotel is memorable. Awesome staff, fantastic food, walloped gym and a maintained swimming pool. Neat and spacious rooms. Situated centrally, but still surroundings are pleasant with rich plantation. The staff behaved in good manners and always courteous and their welcome drink made my expectations go up which was never experienced before in this price range. The rooms here are very neat. The rooms have a small Bath tub and the bathrooms also have adequate space and are clean, which is hard to find in the Pondy hotels. Our kids enjoyed the swimming pool and the variety of floaters they have at their swimming pool area. The breakfast options excelled to me though not of variety, but more than sufficient.
