Best hotel at economically cheap,Excellent service

Posted 28 Mar, 2014

This hotel is very nice and clean. Located at prime area in Pondy. It is very near to pondy new bus stand and Room Tariff rate is also very much less compare to others. House keeping and Room services excellent. The above point are impressed me to stay in that hotel for long period. I will always prefer this hotel whenever I visited official pondy. Nearest to the hotel, shopping quarter like Pothis, Joy allukas, and cine theatre available. Best Non vegetarian and vegetarian food available at down restaurant run by hotel at best price

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 up to 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 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.

Good services at a decent budget

Posted 18 Aug, 2014

I visited Pondicherry with my family and the experience was commendable. Despite of the hotel's moderate ambience, the services were good and within a decent budget. The stay was cool and the rooms were decent and clean. There was a lift for easily accessing the floors. A limited usage of WiFi was an advantage The best part of the hotel was it's own food. The ground floor restaurant offered a range of authentic Tamil Nadu and Kerala food varieties Most importantly, the hotel was situated at the center of the city and it was very easy to travel to almost any important place and even by taking the pleasure of walking. For instance, Aurobindo Ashram, beach and many chruches were close at only 15 to 20 minutes walk Unfortunately, the water heater did not work but the hotel managed to bring a hot bucket in the morning.

Staff were attentive, quick & good natured

Posted 26 Apr, 2014

I was on a Holiday tour with my cousin. We traveled all along the coastline of Tamil Nadu before we entered Pondicherry. It was my first time in Pondy. We checked in White residency at 10. 30 in the night with the suggestion of a co-traveler in our bus. So, the hotel had a mouth publicity We were given a very good room for a very reasonable rate, and the room was well cleaned and had good ventilation and had a Tv facility. I was famished at that late night, we ordered fried rice and curry from the restaurant which is located below White residency and I bet you it was the best food we'd that day for about just 120 bucks and I still think about its taste The staff at White Residency are attentive, quick and good matured. The strategic location of this hotel is also an advantage as it is very close to rock beach and museums. I'd suggest this hotel for the people who look for best stay within their budget.

Cooperative staff; no activities

Posted 4 Sep, 2014

Hotel was located near to the bus stop. Staff of the hotel was cooperative and helpful. Room was not comfortable it was not clean and nor furnished. Look wise hotel was average. Nice view was missing from the room's window. Food was present in the hotel but I did not take my food there. No activities were arranged by the hotel. Billing and booking process was on time. I visited this place with my friends in March month. I live in Chennai city. Pondicherry as a tourist place is wonderful destination for visitors. Services of the hotel were fine.
