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

Gratitude has a very warm vibe to it and you fall in love with the place right from the time you walk in! It's housed on a quiet lane in the French Quarter of Pondicherry. The house itself is very quaint with welcoming yellow walls. The decor inside is stunning. There's a beautiful swing in the courtyard..do carry that book... More

A quiet courtyard, leaves swaying in the breeze, game of scrabble and 2 cups of green tea...it was a perfect evening...some drops of green tea fell on the table...my wife quietly got up and wiped it off with a cloth...well in any other hotel we wouldn't have bothered much about it...after all there is room cleaning!!!

Gratitude is a gem. Located in the French quarter only blocks from the Promenade and close to some of the best restaurants and shopping in town, this is a great refuge from a day trekking through S. India. A charming old manor house renovated as a heritage hote, the staff here is great and ready to help you arrange anything... More

Thank you for a candid well written review and we feel humbled that GRATITUDE has really been a good experience for you. It will be a pleasure to have you back with us again.

Gratitude is the nicest place we found in India. The house and rooms are beautiful, decorated with taste and super clean. The staff is polite, nice and welcoming. The massage and breakfast are both perfect and confirm this place is paradise. You will definitely feel at home!

A top notch heritage guesthouse smack in the heart of the French Quarter. Perfect in all respects. French speaking deputy manager Jean-Luc and his Indian colleague V.J. are running a fairly tight operation for the pleasure of their guests. We had to leave Gratitude after three nights but promised ourselves we would be back.

Located in the French Quarters and walking distance from the Pondy beach. The first thing to know is that Gratitude does not accommodate families with kids. This filter is to maintain the peace and quiet for all the guests staying in the house. So this makes it a great option for people like me who would like their privacy and... More

We were enchanted by Gratitude from the moment we arrived in front of its front doors. My flight was delayed and after a long commute from chennai, ended up arriving around 9pm in pondicherry. The young lady who welcomed us was very understanding that we were tired and immediately took us to the room to rest instead of rushing to... More
