We booked through travelspice and got the rooms at half the listed rate. Understandably, the room was not as big as some of the other rooms we happened to spot in the hotel, but still not too small either. The receptionists and service were very courteous and kindly let us stay from 8 AM till 12 the next day which was more than the listed check in- check out time. Sadly the room stank of cigarettes when we checked in. Probably due to the previous guest. There was not hot water in the shower, else facilities were decent. The place is decent for the price we paid but wouldnt be worth the price listed on their website.

We visited Pondicherry this Feb and stayed at the Richmond. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Almost every day the staff called us for the breakfast buffet and ensured we had a good meal. I am yet to see a staff more concerned about their guests missing breakfast, that was quite heartwarming!

The hotel is in white town - a very good location to be in Pondicherry. Everything is within walking distance and I would suggest you walk everywhere in Pondi.

Since us three friends were travelling together, they gave us the big family room on the ground floor. The rooms is quite big and spacious and well maintained. However, the room doesn't have any windows so there is pretty much no daylight coming in. Also, you enter right through the restaurant area - which can be a boon or a blessing.

The Richmond is quite close to the beach. It offers pretty good rooms with a really good shower and toiletries. The price of the rooms might be on the expensive side but its worth it if you are booking via one of the hotel booking sites. The complimentary breakfast is quite good with a variety of south Indian delicacies and omelette on order.

Overall a great place to stay provided you get the right deal :)

Spent the new year eve at Pondicherry and stayed on the 1st floor room 110. The hotel parking is on the street that's narrow so you might face an issue with that. Moderate breakfast spread but the service was really slow. The too was ok but there was hardly warm water available. The AC leaked water and they could not repair it even after repeated complaints.
But on the positive, the room decor and cleanliness was welcome.
The food (ordered once for noodles) was no great experience and did not try their restaurant any further. Would give the place a 3 star rating though even when the price charged (5000) for a night was on the higher side.
