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

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

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

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.

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!
