We (two couples) wanted to be close to the heritage part of the city, preferred a smaller quiet place and looked to a hotel with old world charm. The Anantha Heritage hotel more than met our expectations - large rooms, wood all over, a glimpse into an old world family house, friendly responsive staff. Things to factor - be prepared... More

Small, charming place to stay in the Tamil area of Pondicherry a little away from the French colony. The staff were very sweet, though a bit shy at first. Our room was upstairs with a shared balcony overlooking the adjacent temple tank. So we enjoyed sitting on the sofa on the balcony with its cool atmosphere and lovely view of... More

We were there for the Pongal break this Jan'16. We had a pleasant stay. The staff is courteous and makes the overall experience great. Special mention to the manager Mr. Fedrick who is always ready to help with a smile on his face.

The rooms are very clean. Travelling with toddlers that was very important for us. The bathrooms are clean too. Loved the old world look of the place. Food was excellent, the whole family enjoyed it including our children. The manager, staff and chef were very friendly and created a homely atmosphere. The only thing to note is if you are... More

We drove down to Pondicherry from Chennai and stayed at the AHH at the recommendation of a travel agent friend. The hotel has been beautifully restored, with careful attention to detail. On arrival, we were graciously welcomed and shown through the beautifully decorated 'lobby' area to our room upstairs. The room we stayed in was simply gorgeous. The bed was... More

Have actually stayed at this place twice. Love the feel of an old south Indian home. Looked forward each day to the super fresh melon juice at breakfast. And still remember the lovely yellow walls of the bathroom. I won't think of going to any other place in town.

My sisters and I stayed here after we had a really unpleasant experience at another place in Pondicherry for one night. The Anantha is a converted Chettiyar home and has only six rooms. It is a boutique hotel of the best kind. The manager, Mr Frederick, was a warm and welcoming person. His staff take their lead from him. We... More

We spent a week at the Anantha Heritage over the Diwali holiday and were very pleased with the facilities and service. The room was spacious, comfortable, clean and relatively quiet considering the festivities. My husband had some health issues and needed medicines which Fredrick and the team took care of very efficiently. The Heritage Hotel had been recommended to us... More

Hospitality was really good.. Our 1year old kid also loved the stay.. They prepared plain rice and dal for our kid as we requested and it was just like home for us. We did enjoy the stay. Just felt they can reduce the prices by little since they don't have 24 hrs restaurant like other hotels.. Other than that it... More

Although this is not a problem in South India. 2) wifi was patchy..sit in the right or wrong place and you do or don't pick it up. Otherwise a very nice... More
