It was my first time in Pondicherry and i decided to stay in Promenade because I'd heard a lot about the place from my friends and they weren't wrong.
I'm a big foodoholic and for me food means a lot so as per my expectations the team did an excellent job.

Stayed: December 2017, travelled solo

1. You can keep calling the house keeping and you would get nothing. Called repeatedly for hand towels and tea cups - nothing for 2 days

2. The safe was not working and despite repeated promise of fixing - don’t done till we checked out

3. The happy hours is a scam and the crew members out to fleece you - be careful check the bill very carefully at the story teller bar

4. Told that we would be charged Rs 300 + taxes if we lost keys ! Like really ?

5. They have a Menu but most items are unavailable


I can go on and on - in short find another place to stay if you want a comfortable and enjoyable stay

Stayed: July 2018

Stayed here for 4 nights at this beachfront hotel, have walked around the vicinity and dined at various restaurants. By far the best hotel to stay if u are visiting pondicherry, service is immaculate and food is decent and international. Staff is very kind and hospitable and dinner on the rooftop which overlooks the sea was a memorable experience. Chella, the waiter was very skilled with the deboning of fish and attentive towards our needs. Would love to stay here again.

Stayed: July 2018, travelled as a couple

The promenade is a legendary hotel with history behind it and is backed by hidesign.The expectations were high and it lived up to its name.They were a few hitches that made me give a 4 rating,but the hitches were nothing major and can be covered up easily.
The hotel is small and cosy,with the best location you can ever get in Pondicherry.Yet it packs everything that you would need out of a good hotel.
Most of the rooms are average sized, I was unluckily given a room smaller than the average sized rooms.The rooms need a interior makeover now.
The restaurants are good. Couldn't try out the roof top place but the view from there is awesome.
Had meals at the restaurant on the ground floor and were at the basement bar for two nights.Both of them have very nice food and service.
The reception and swimming pool both are very small understandably so.
Also special mention to the team who quickly changed the room when one of the room's window couldn't close properly and thus had small insects creep into the room.As I mentioned the rooms need a furniture makeover now.
But otherwise a very delightful stay made sweeter by the courteous staff.
Pros: Excellent location.
Packed with everything.
Good food
Cons: Room Interiors are nothing to write about.

Stayed: June 2018, travelled with family
