Excellent location, friendly staff.
This was specific to our room but the bathroom had a damp smell, probably because of a leak. But they did try to fix it once we told them.
Awesome. Good location. Sea view suits are so nice.
The main thing I liked was the location. Another thing that is appreciated is the General Manager organizing for a cake and a bouquet at the stroke of midnight to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you for that, Mr. Bakshi
There are a lot of things that I didn't like here. To begin with, when one is paying for a premium room (sea-facing), one would expect the amenities to be the same (if not better) than the other rooms. Here we found that the study table was only a nook in the corner (about 1.5 foot by 1.5 foot) - not like the other rooms where the study tables were full size (4ft by 2ft). While making a reservation and also when I got a call from the hotel, I had specifically requested for a hard mattress and a hard pillow - something that I was assured would be done, but unfortunately, neither of this was provided and a holiday which was supposed to be relaxing, turned out to be the most painful. Then the food... I really think that the chef at the Bay of Buddha has to undergo training on how to cook Thai & Chinese food. Whatever we ordered for dinner during our first night there - was horrible. In spite of bringing it to the notice of the Captain and even returning plates that were full - they didn't give us a solution at all. Then the next morning during breakfast, one of the stewardess' there had told me that she would get the toast to my table, but even 10mins later when the toast did not come to my desk, and when I went to get my toast re-done, I noticed that the stewardess was busy serving a foreigner and getting things for that lady. This clearly showed me that her preference was mainly towards the international tourists visiting Puducherry After all the above, I didn't expect anything from the hotel and stayed out most of the time - going back only to sleep.
The ambience was great and centrally located . Staff were very courteous and helpful to provide information and assistance .
Water leakage in the bathroom .
A stay at The Promenade places you in the heart of Pondicherry, within a 15-minute walk of Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Pondicherry Promenade Beach. Featured amenities include limo/town car service, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and a 24-hour front desk. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a train station pick-up service.
