Must stay for a grand colonial experience in the heart of the French town. Pros: Very helpful staff, colonial rooms, awesome food at the restaurant and to top it all, the beach is just 100 meters away.

Always wanted to stay at one of the neemrana properties. Finally had our chance. Short but very memorable and peaceful stay. Curteous staff, well maintained and beautiful rooms and very good location. Really liked the breakfast especially the continental bit. would definitely come back sometime soon. This place lived up to my expectations and beyond!

Beautiful property, period furniture and decor, peaceful ambiance and friendly staff. Enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The antique coffee- tea box was so beautiful that we went in search of similar box and could luckily find one too in one of the antique shops. Overall a magical experience.

We enjoyed very much this beautifully restored heritage hotel in Pondicherry's best location. The atmosphere in the magnificent public areas takes you right back to Pondicherry's colonial past. The rooms are comfortable enough and the minimalist modernisation has been done in a way that respects the history of the building. Friendly staff and good restaurant.

Perfectly located about two minutes walk away from Promenade beach, the property is just plain beautiful, with a huge Neem tree growing out from right in the middle of it (of course). Rooms are simple, clean, elegant (we stayed at the Arcot and the Nellore, the only two rooms which do not have 'open door' bathrooms); however, its easy to... More

The Hotel is simply gorgeous! The rooms are great, we were upgraded to the Mahe and Chandernagore and both suites are dreamy. My sister walked into the latter and jumped on the bed exclaiming about how she felt like she was in the Game of Thrones! The bed is an ornate antique four poster that was stunning. In fact every...
