Cleanliness, Hospitality, Location,
Breakfast good, but limited variety & quantity.
The staff was really helpful.
This property has been converted from a house to a hotel. The hotel does have the heritage feel in terms of basic decor (paintings, artifacts, wooden beams, central sunlight area etc). The staff are helpful in terms basic courtesy and helping us out with directions and arranging vehicle. The hotel has its own car and on making a reasonable payment, we can use it for sightseeing. The breakfast is simple and healthy- bread, butter, jam, omelette, fruits and coffee. The place is close to a ton of shops and it is in a central area. The Promenade beach is a 10 min walk away. The bus stand is a mile away (1.6 kms). We had 9 hours to kill between checkout time and our bus boarding time. The hotel staff were kind enough to let us use the common area to rest and keep our luggage till we left. (this is unlike some other hotels which said we cannot keep our luggage and hang out). The Hotel is a definite value for money!! recommended!! (but don't expect any views though, like sea or parks)
But it could definitely do with some cleanliness. I understand this is not a hotel in the true sense with all rooms being similar, doors facing each other, tiles, bells and whistles but it is not very cleanly maintained. The first room we were given was damp and dusty. We were upgraded to a 'delux' room. It was cleaner and well ventilated but the A/C was leaking a bit. Also the area next to the rest-room on the ground floor is like a dumpyard of sorts. The road itself is a bit smelly and I think it is because of unused church building next door where people dump garbage outside. This is not the hotel's fault but I am saying don't expect to wake up every morning to smell of flowers blooming :-).
I felt it was over priced. Given the room at ground floor with no window overlooking.
The work team is excellent. I arrived at 7am and they gave me a room to stay until the check in time. It was very kind and lovely. They are extremely helpful, efficient and tried to make my stay comfortable and pleasant. The high point of the hotel was the attention that they gave to me and all my needs. The equipe is marvelous!!
The breakfast begins around 9am, very late! In my 05 days at the hotel I just had the breakfast twice because the activities at the Auroville begins at 8:45h and the Sri Aurobindo’s ashram propose one bus at 8am.. So, I left the hotel early. I lost the breakfast almost everyday. The room is not cleaned everyday and the towels are not changed even once in all 05 days.
With a stay at Hotel Coramandal Heritage in Pondicherry, you'll be within a 10-minute walk of Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Government Place. Featured amenities include a business center and laundry facilities. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
