I love the front office and bellboys ('bell men') hahaha. They were very professional. The pondicherry seafood soup was just out of this world and its my greatest memory.

Good hotel with parking facility and great food.

Good hotel at a great location. We opted for the duplex room to accommodate the kids comfortably and they really enjoyed the separate upstairs bed 😊. I drove down to pondicherry and was very particular that the hotel needs to have proper parking space for my SUV. As you know, many of those boutique hotels in pondy has issues with parking and most of the time you have to do a street side parking which is very much a hassle. Shenbaga has proper parking and valet. The restaurant needs special mention, the Pondicherry special Prawns and fish dishes were really tasty. The buffet breakfast was also a good spread, catering to Indian and foreign guests. Overall I am happy with the hotel.

ok hotel in Pondy

The hotel was nice and pleasant, the room was very large, and the staff was helpful, but the room smelled of smoke and the linen and towels were greyish.
