We stayed for one night with our two young children. From the start, our kids loved it--from the floral garland and lemon-ginger drink on arrival, to the indoor swing in the lobby where they relaxed during check-in, to the bed in our room that made them feel like "king and queen." I had the fixed-price dinner--the only menu option--in the... More

My wife and I came to Pondicherry for our 1st anniversary. After reading through several trip advisor reviews, we booked at the Maison Perumal. And what a difference it made. This beautifully restored Tamil house is in the Tamil Quarter (not in the French Quarter) but within walking distance to the Promenade. If you are insistent on finding a place... More

Everything about this boutique hotel is wonderful. It is an elegant, gracious place with only 10 rooms surrounding lovely open air courtyards filled with plants - very French in feel and so reminiscent of New Orleans. The staff is lovely, so helpful and accommodating. The breakfasts were excellent as well. The hotel is well located to anything in the quarter,... More

Excellent location in heritage town, next to Mission Street, with proximity to Aurobindo Ashram, sea side promenade, french colony eateries, churches & temples. The place is very well maintained & is a beautiful blend of old Tamil home charm and modern amenities. The open to sky centre courtyard & stained glasses and Burma teak pillars & balconies are a visual... More

A real find. Fantastic boutique hotel. Small and quiet and the best surprise was the meals. We had been travelling in Southern India for 3 weeks and we had the best food here, hands down. To top off the food quality, the staff were first class, with a friendly "family" style welcome. Can not rate this hotel any higher, if... More

This is a small boutiquey-style Hotel in the French quarter. Part of the cg-hotels group it's sister hotel is the Palais de Mahe, also in Pondicherry. It's a haven of tranquility in a sea of bustle. The style is old colonial and there's a small inner courtyard where you have your meals. The food is freshly prepared every day and... More

Lovely heritage hotel in a nice and convenient area of Pondicherry . The hotel is quiet , spotless, and well maintained. From the moment we were greeted with a delicious and refreshing lime and ginger drink, we realized how pampered we would be by the impeccable staff. Dinner and breakfast were abundant and tasteful , before dinner the chef also... More

Its a nice place. Good service. Good rooms. Sea food dinner is a must try. The breakfast is not that great. But ok.the sea is about 10 minutes walk. You have to park in the street over all a nice experience

Absolutely loved this hotel, quite unique, a heritage house that has been adapted to a lovely eco hotel, spotlessly clean and well maintained. We had a very warm welcome from Elbe, sorry if I've spelt the name wrong? Our welcome drink was the best we experienced in India a refreshing homemade ginger and lemon. As with all food and drink...

One of the best that we have ever experienced. Personal attention and hospitality are at the top. True family atmosphere. Well maintained old India styled building. Gave a personal send-off when checking out.
