I would like to find out from forum members which hotels in Pondicherry near the beach are good. I had checked out some beach resorts but they work out to be a bit costly, and therefore I am now opting for hotels near the beach which works out to be near enough the same kind of thing. It would be great if the hotel is walking distance from the beach which is something I am ideally looking for. My budget is anything up to Rs3500 per night. I would like the hotel to have a good view and good restaurant where we can sometimes have breakfast if need be.
