Stayed at the hotel on 22nd, 23rd, and 24th November 2014. Trip to Pondicherry was cherishing with beautiful memories and stay at this hotel is fondly layered in those memories.
Locating the hotel should not be any problem as was evident from the exclamation of the taxi driver when I asked him to take me to the hotel - “Oh, you will be staying at Annamalai, it is the best in Puducherry”. Though I know there are many options in any city, ranging from very good to very luxurious, such a superlative comment, even if generous, made me happy to think of the way this hotel has earned its reputation and I anticipated at least a decent stay even before I had checked in. And the hotel did not let the expectations down for once.
Hotel staff is very friendly and courteous, the lobby is beautiful, and the room booked was very spacious and beautiful with all luxurious facilities. Room service and cleanliness deserve full marks. Wi fi worked quite well. One thing that I particularly enjoyed was their south Indian breakfast buffet in the morning. The beauty of the hall where breakfast is spread would not go unnoticed, apart from the food quality and variety which was very gratifying.
The beach is about fifteen - twenty minutes walking distance from the hotel, through the main market of Pondicherry, with many restaurants and famous shops on way to the beach. Trips to other places are arranged by the hotel (though I had my own travel arrangement, so can’t comment on this). Two or three restaurants with different cuisines are inside the hotel for lunch and dinner, but can’t comment again, as due to prior commitments, had to go out before lunch and came back after having dinner.
Over all a very comfortable and memorable stay. Would definitely be back again!

Very good hotel,
spacious rooms and interiors,
very good service and professional staff
Location is good however 1-2 KMs from sea beach road.
located in market area therefore good for shopping.
Lobby is not appropriately spacious as the interiors

The hotel seems very simple with average service quality but seems to be delivering the promise. Food quality is reasonable. Coffee they served during our conference was not good at
The location is on a main road, you can hear traffic sounds clearly. The lobby area has decent ambience.
