It is well located & if you...

This is just a perfect spot to get into the Pondicherry "mood", with a sea facing room having a small balcony there is a million dollar view over the sea, with an always changing parade of pedestrians taking the sea air ( the water front road is closed to vehicles each evening and night). Staff are super friendly and helpful,...

We had stayed in this guest house during last week feb,17. This is a seafront guest house. This is one of the best place to stay in Puducherry. The rooms are very good and neat and clean. The restaurant is good and you have to inform at the reception quite a good time before for the food. Breakfast is complimentary.

The attitude of the SSGH staff can be better. If you are not a foodie or don't mind eating the simple bland veg food served here, this is a nice, clean, peaceful place to stay, bang on the promenade, at a very reasonable rate. You can't smoke or drink inside but you can always venture out of the guest house...

All the rooms are sea facing. In between sea and you there is only Goubert Avenue. The management is controlled by Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Not a single dust in the floor not to speak of other amenities. Here you have to follow a few discipline for serenity as desired by the Ashram If you are for extravaganza this place is...

Visit to Pondicherry and if you are looking for a budget stay with good view of the sea, this is the place. Usual ways, you need to plan the trip well in advance and book the stay at least 2 months before the trip during seasons to be lucky enough to get it reserved.

The first thing that one notices about the Seaside guesthouse is the superb location - bang on the Promenade in Pondicherry, facing the sea & surrounded by all the wonderful places to eat, drink & explore almost a stone's throw away. Since the guesthouse is a property of the Shri Aurobindo Trust, needless to say there are a few regimentations...

One of the best locations in Pondichery. Right on the sea side. One can see the sea from room balcony. Booking is difficult but it's real value for money if you get it. Walking distance to the Aurobindo Ashram, the Samadhi and the dinning hall. And only 2 Kms from the Railway Station.

Had been to Pondi with family for 5 nights, just returned home this evening. Thought it appropriate to write down the review before I lose perspective! Great location, right on the beach..very decent, clean and frill-free accommodation. Complimentary, simple, wholesome and hot breakfast served between 820-920 every morning(includes eggs). Other meals on request, vegetarian and modestly chargeable. Rooms are well-appointed,...
