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,...

Step 2~ if you choose 1st option then plan in advance and book sea side guest house. Managed by Aurbindo society, this is a very simple but clean and reasonable priced place. Evening and mornings...

This guest house is right on the Marine Drive and having stayed in a room with a view, this was so much worth the money and more. The rooms are clean, with air conditioning, the housekeeping was efficient, and food was simple and healthy. If you are looking for a five star treatment, this is certainly not the place. But...

You can get a stunning view of the sea from the sea front rooms. The Hotel is very conveniently located across the Promenade. We could hear the sound of the waves all day long from the balcony. Facilities and service are pretty good and a real value for money. The hotel provides free wifi, free and safe parking, complimentary breakfast...

It's a nice and simple guest house located on the rock beach road. If you can follow there rules of no TV/alcohol it is worth considering. They provide simple food. Try to book early to get Sea facing room. Food is very simple, but since it is in White Town lots of other options are available for lunch/dinner. Even some...

Simple, spartan, air-conditioned guesthouse that overlooks the sea at a price that cannot be beaten. Loads of power points thoughtfully laid out, very clean, tea and biscuits, no coffee and a balcony that faces the sea. Amazing. Great breakfast too. Again three items but great quality. And free wifi. You have to be back by 11.15pm. Only hitch. Or you...
