We went to Pondy about a week ago and chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. Stayed 2 nights. This property is quite good. The room was a nice size and so was the bathroom. The TV (22" lcd) was ok, with a lot of channels. The bed was also good size and comfortable. The much needed AC chilled the room up in no time. Room had a mini-bar, a small fridge with a few soft drinks and tea/coffee machine.
This hotel has all facilities - swimming pool, gym, spa etc. and all in good condition. There are 3 restaurants within the hotel premises out of which the poolside one has the best ambiance. The breakfast is also quite a good fare but ends at 9.30AM - wish they extended it till 10 as guests on a holiday don't like to wake up early.
All in all a good experience. My only complaint is that they couldn't shift me to a room with a poolside view and they me extra tax while my makemytrip voucher clearly said that this price includes all taxes. Other than these minor incoveniences, it was a very pleasurable experience.
