We stayed at the comfortable Seringapattinam in the Annexe. Good service. Wonderful breakfast. The suite in itself was well set up. Air-conditioning - essential in the afternoons. The decor was charming and it was in true Neemrana style - boutique, functional.

We stayed at the Hotel L'Orient in Pondicherry and it was easily one of the best travel experiences we had. The hotel is a renovated old Franco-Tamil colonial style bungalow in the erstwhile French quarter. It remains true to the features of the 18th century architecture and finish, while having modern conveniences. We arrived at the hotel five hours before... More

We stayed at this Neemrana Heritage property in mid-April and loved the experience. The bungalow is built in the old French style and is full of old artifacts and photographs from the 18th and 19th centuries. We especially liked the well-preserved actual picture post cards that are framed all over the place. It completes the old-world ambience of the place.... More

A quick getaway from the maddening work-week was what we needed. This nicely furnished boutique hotel was everything I wanted. So much character in each of the pieces in the rooms. The colonial furniture and the greenery around was a good distraction from the urban landscape we live in. We stayed in Karaikal, which opened into a not-so-small private terraced... More

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.
