A good hotel with excellent facilities. The rooms are neat, clean, well maintained and the interiors and a/c were good . The staffs and receptionist were friendly and helpful. The promenade is 10 minute walk from here.

The hotel provides entire satisfaction for the value of money. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The food was excellent especially the cesar salad and the chicken steak. Round the clock menu can be improved. Restaurant closes at 11:00 which is a disadvantage for late night hogger.

Laila's County was known as Mercure Hotel earlier, but after the rechristening, there has been a tremendous change in terms of interiors, quality of food and service. The interiors are simply out of the world and are thoughtfully crafted. The designer A/cs look cool and comfortable. The beds are comfortable but small. The bathrooms are cramped but sufficient. The food... More

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.

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
