I was very excited to stay at this property after seeing the beautiful photos. I booked rooms for myself and three others including my elderly mother who I was travelling around India with. We were very pleased upon arriving at this lovely house but from then on it all went downhill. My gripes about this place included: watching the French/Indian... More

My best friend and I had the most amazing stay at this extremely warm, well done and beautiful property in the French part of Pondicherry. Every corner of the boutique hotel had a story. The staff/housekeepers are polite and warm and not even once we felt that we are away from home. Situated only 2 minutes walk away from the... More

Upon our arrival, the owner immediately expressed her disatisfaction to the way that our tour agent had made our reservation. She told us that he had booked the least expensive rooms and the day before our arrival, had requested two higher priced rooms (we were staying with another couple). We were completely unaware of the situation and felt puzzled and... More

i stayed here in october 2013 with an architect friend from malaysia. We were given a choice of rooms and chose the one upstairs that opened out to the small outdoor balcony. A lovely place that met expectations as far as location decor and rooms were concerned. The owner was very nice to us on this visit and on learning... More

I stayed a week here, and couldn't be happier. The place really is beautiful, and once you get to know Annie she is really helpful and kind. The location is wonderful, right in the white town, and very convenient. The pool is small, but perfect for cooling down in the hot afternoons. It was also fantastic to have dark curtains... More

This place was suggested to us by a friend who had stayed there earlier. It is very close to the beach road situated in the old Pondicherry. We had stayed there for our honeymoon and it would be fun to stay there again. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and the breakfast served is really good. There is a problem... More

If you are looking for a peaceful and homely stay 2 minute away from the sea - this is it. The place is typical French and has limited rooms (5 I think) which are quite well maintained, though there is no real view from any of the rooms. But the sea is just a walk away and that's one of... More

This review is very late, but that's only because we wanted to write it together and then we got busy raving about the place to people we knew. But now I have decided to just go ahead and write it. La Closerie was not our first choice. We wanted to go to another place but it was full and we... More

I agree with most of the other reviewers - amazing property in terms of location and decor. The owner it seems is very passionate about the place and has been very selective in interiors, furnishings etc. Whatever limited staff, is very polite and courteous Good value for money Very clean and hygienic, rooms were spotless Some points for consideration 1....

Annie (the owner of this beautiful guest house) has created an absolute gem in one of the best spots in Pondicherry. She has designed this with such taste that it is up there with the most luxurious of hotels and at a far more reasonable price (rooms were going for 3750R to 5000R when we were there in Nov 2013)....
