“Great Place to stay”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

I have revisited this property after a gap of one year and found that the level of service is improved than last year. One must have food at their vegetarian restaurant Haveli and try south indian thali to have genuine taste of south Indian taste.

The hotel is good with decent food. The lobby is huge with Traditional architecture. There is a swimming pool on terrace which is good. Staff is cordial and they have spacious rooms.
There Bar in the hotel is resonabally priced.

I was on a business trip to Pondicherry and resided in Annamalai Hotel. The hotel ambience and rooms was good. However the food was not to the expectation.The hotel had 2 resturants i.e one fine dine and other the buffet area.

I had food in fine dine in evening and buffet breakfast in morning. The resturant was closed by 11:00 PM and was left with little choice for dinner.

Even the morning breakfast was having the variety of dishes whihc is normally in the buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: Take the back rooms as front rooms have noise from the road

This hotels is slightly gaudily designed but has that old world habits, rhythm and charm. The South Indian fare at lunch/dinner is quite sumptuous and filling. Do try it.

Our room was pleasantly decorated and furnished, spacious and well appointed. The room service as well as restaurant service were prompt and attentive.

It's slightly away from the sea shore but that would be acceptable for the business traveler, I suppose. It was a bit of a struggle for us as tourists though with the autorickshaw drivers charging heftily in the night.

Overall, definitely recommended unless you've got a booking at one of those delightful boutique hotels in the French town.

Room Tip: Corner rooms seem to be slightly more spacious.
