This is my third stay at the Gratitude Hotel and we are already planning next years visit. It is a really great hotel with lovely rooms and a most beautiful, peaceful courtyard which houses a tree that rises up to the sky. Its a place of peace and serenity. And the breakfasts are fantastic - croissants, great coffee and fruit... More

I have been travelling every year to Pondicherry and Auroville for over a decade and a half, preferring to stay in the latter. We opted to stay in Pondy this time and settled on Gratitude, which we had chanced upon on our last visit in May 2014. Gratitude is a charming heritage property with the rooms ranged around a beautiful,... More

This is my third time at Gratitude and I will be going back again next year. Everything about it is wonderful, the building with the tranquil courtyard and roof terrace, the rooms which are beautifully furnished and spotless, the breakfasts which are the best we had on this last trip to India and the staff who are warm and welcoming.

Gratitude Heritage lies in the heart of old Pondicherry, surrounded by French style avenues, churches and some good dining options. The home stay is quiet, extremely clean and does a lovely breakfast where guests from all the rooms get to meet each other, chat and discuss their experiences. The rooms themselves are comfortable and somehow encourage you to slow down... More

Gratitude occupies a beautifully restored colonial building in the center of historic Pondicherry. The spacious and charming rooms surround a tranquil, lush courtyard. A delicious breakfast is served just off the courtyard at a communal table, providing a great opportunity to meet other travelers. Best of all, the warm and welcoming owner and staff make you feel right at home.... More

Stayed here on a very recent trip to Pondicherry. Wonderful place, and highly recommended in case you are planning a trip there! The rooms are unique, and the entire property is extremely well maintained. We stayed in room #6, which had an extremely cosy yet luxurious feel to it. My favourite part of the house was the terrace :). Our... More

Thank you. It always makes us happy when our guests decide to extend their stay or return to stay with us. What gives us more joy is that young people like the two of you can actually appreciate the quiet elegance of a house like GRATITUDE as opposed to normal hotels. I do hope you will come back again soon. More

I count it as my good fortune to have discovered a 'treasure-home' like Gratitude, for my month-long stay in Pondy. A heritage home, so beautiful and charming, in the heart of the French colony, next to the beach promenade. You experience a sense of beauty and harmony in every space, every nook and corner. Very tastefully restored and maintained, with... More

My father and brother(and his wife) visited Chennai and on short notice, we decided to make a run to Pondicherry. My first choice was Le Hibiscus (memories from an earlier visit refuse to abate) but Mr. B responded that they were booked and on my prodding recommended Gratitude among other properties. I called and spoke to a courteous lady who... More

We travelled to Pondicherry from Bangalore with our 9 year old daughter during the Diwali weekend to get away from the cracker noise. I will say that Graditude Heritage is a perfect place to spend a weekend, a week or a month. Gratitude is situated in the French Colony and is 5 minutes walk from the sea. Location is a... More

Thank you for your wonderful review. We enjoyed having you stay with us and also a special thanks for the tips on the road connection between Bangalore and Pondicherry. For those who want to know, this is a recommended route from Bangalore: "Bangalore to Pondicherry via Salem instead of Vellore/Arcot. Though the route was almost 60 Kms longer (425 vs... More

My wife and I stayed three nights at Gratitude Heritage Hotel recently. We were extremely well looked after. The staff was courteous. The place was nostalgic and perfect to stay. The food was excellent (we are vegetarians). The location is very good and convenient. Many eateries nearby too. Close proximity to the sea, the promenade makes an excellent walk. The... More
