Stayed for one night.... we were family of 4...had taken a Suite room!! room size was small!! but the view from the room compensated for all the flaws!! You step out of the room you have a roof top restaurant which serves Pan asian food!! As you step of the hotel , you have a long stretch by the sea for a long walk!! and it is a car free zone during evenings!! Loved the property!!

We visited there to enjoy the warm weather of Pondicherry and stay by the beach. The Promenade hotel is right by the beach. There is large area to walk by the beach. Hotel staff were helpful. They have a complimentary breakfast which is excellent. The rooms are pricey. They are worth it because of the location of the hotel.

We stayed at The Promenade in March and it was such a beautiful, relaxing experience. The location is fabulous and we could watch the sun rise from our room. The view of the ocean was spectacular.

We started our experience on a rocky start since they did not have our room ready until 4 pm although check in time was 2 pm. They apologized and tried to make amends. Thereafter we enjoyed the promenade. The breakfast was good. Of particular note was mahesh and shammomba (in the main restraunt, I think I have mispelt her name. She was from the north east) .the ocean view rooms were lovely. Their housekeeping could do with some improvement. Free WI FI was in most parts pretty awesome.

The Promenade is an excellent choice to stay at Pondicherry. The location, of course, is one of the main reasons. It overlooks the beach and you just have to go across the road to get there.

Nice and comfortable stay, courteous staff, good food, Really good restaurants......rooftop one was mind blowing, the main restaurant at ground floor had fabulous beach view during breakfast time. The hotel is at excellent location. There were tiny issues related to free wifi connectivity that never happened may be due to speed of network and also the electronic safe wasnt working. Swimming pool could have been a bit more impressive. On the whole, will highly recommend this hotel for stay..... Read more

The hotel location is the best. On beach road, main avenue, and near the old part of Pondicherry, where we can access the touristic points very easily. From room you can see the ocean around. The hotel we can fell the charm of distant times. Now, it needs a deep repair to return to those.. Special thanks for Ms. Adunthara (sorry if name not correct). The person responsible for all front desk. Gave some good advice's, and very supportive in all queries raised. The check in procedure, not advisabl... Read more

I stayed in this hotel recently on a business trip. The hotel has only one thing going for itself and that is location. It is bang on the beach. It is simply fantastic to walk on the promenade alongside the sea. But you donâ??t need to stay in Promenade hotel for that - you could always stay in a better hotel and drop by the promenade walkaway for a nice evening stroll or a morning walk. There is a 24 hr coffee shop around, should you feel the cravings in the middle of the night. Just behind the... Read more

We stayed at the Promenade in October 2014. And it was such a pleasant stay.I still rate it one of my best experiences of travelling in India and abroad. The rooms, the food the staff, the ambiance, everything ... its just perfect. The staff is so helpful and kind. They offer an excellent spread for breakfast. Though the hotel is a little expensive, its worth every penny. We had an excellent time during our stay. The swimming pool is neatly maintained and so is the rest of the property too. The ...

This hotel as its name suggests is right on the promenade..which is a rocky sea shore. This is the most beautiful place in Pondicherry. The stars are all for the location. The food is average, rooms very small and bathrooms even smaller. The interiors need a renovation. Staff is helpful. Overall enjoyed the stay only because of its location. You can take a scenic walk on the sea shore conveniently at any time of the day. Ask for a sea facing room.

I had visited promenade for evening dinners in my previous visits to Pondicherry, and stayed with them this time. We had a sea facing room, which was clean and well maintained. Sea facing in this case is, however, actually facing the rocky beach of Pondicherry, which is obvious once one sees the location of the hotel. I found the service to be good and food quality as decent. Their rooftop terrace restaurant is a good sot for evening dinners, however, I preferred it better without the roof cov... Read more

We stayed in 'The Promenade' in Sep 2016. It was clearly a wise choice...the best location for a luxury stay. Situated just overlooking the sea, it makes it a perfect location to stay and walk around the entire white town and beach road at leisure. All places worth a visit, like the Aurobindo Ashram, Vinanyak Temple, Church, the beach road, coffee shops/eateries....are all at walking distance. Also, The hotel itself has multiple good restaurants.. The staff is courteous and helpful.One of the m... Read more

The restaurant is very well located - right on the Promenade (Walk) on the Bay Front - as the name suggests. Most of the staff are very friendly but I am not sure how the bar tender operates. I had visited the place to unwind one nice warm evening with an important guest and wanted to try out some of their imported wines. I ordered one, for which they charge 700 Rs a glass (a little over 10 US$) and expressed my wish to the waiter that they serve me from a newly opened bottle (as here wine stor... Read more

The Promenade is the best hotel to stay in Pondicherry. Located just in front of Rock Beach, it provides you the awesome view of the sea from the terrace and a few rooms. Interiors of the rooms are good. Property is well maintained and staff is courteous and helpful.

We stayed at the Promenade during our short visit to Puducherry. The service was very good. On arrival we were served with refreshing cool sweet lime juice. It was a relief from the hot weather on that day. The reception were prompt in handling our arrival. Our rooms were very clean ,thanks to the housekeeping teams. Water from the tap is filtered and no problem when drinking it too. Our mini fridge is well stocked with snacks n tiny bottles of liquor. We also had 2 liters of bottled water dail... Read more

The place is excellent. Right on the beach road in the White Town area of the town. Buffet breakfast has lots of options. The pool, though small, is good enough for a dip and also has a kids' pool. Walking distance from the Bharati Park and Aurobindo Ashram. The restaurants offer delectable French cuisine (haven't been to France so don't know what purists have to say but who cares; the food was delicious). If you are not tight on budget go for the sea view rooms. The windows of the room we staye... Read more

Best thing about this hotel is its Location, building architecture (Exteriors ), pool area (small but still not bad) and lastly food is good. This hotel is run by Sarovara group of hotels. On our checkin we were greeted and were given room 35. The corridor to the room is really run down and it looks like it is being redone but that isn't the case. The view from this room is not great but this is not in control of hotel so i wouldn't worry. But the room is very noisy because of the outside noise... Read more

This is a charming building with a mid century feel with interior design and timber but is sadly in need of some serious maintenance in rooms and public spaces. The floors are screaming out for some sanding and oiling. Bed comfort could be improved also.
