The hotel is clean. Nice & helpful staff. Nice design. A bit small, but no problem. The bed is too soft. The food is dilicious. I didn't find Pondicherry is an interesting place to visit. However, I'm lucky to have a nice place to stay overnight.

The staff are especially helpful. The hotel itself well run, with good food but what I liked most was the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Lakshmi on the reception desk was very resourceful and her English is near perfect. "Just leave it with me sir and I'll take care of it" and she did. The rooms are a bit... More

Decided to stop in Pondi before heading to Chennai and checked in to Lailas county about 12 pm and Gayathri at the reception was nice to upgrade one of our rooms so that both the rooms were on the same floor. Though the room was small, it was well designed and the mattress was really thick. The only fault probably... More

Visited Pondicherry on 7th December without a hotel booking. Wandered around and looked at a couple of hotels which were not too great. Then I passed by Laila's county, I recalled the images from Trip Advisor. I spent no time and went in to enquire. The reception was warm and made us feel at home. We took a club room... More

Except for the receptionist unruly behaviour for a late check out everything else was fantastic. The rooms and amenities, other staff. The food was a bit spicy. It is very close to the beach and it is only a 5 min walk from the hotel. Has valet parking. Nice stay. Would love to come back again.
