We were on family vacation and trust me decor and ambiance was so lively that we were taken a back to colonial era. I must say they have excellent sense of space management and up keeping of hotel. We were given one penthouse suite and one deluxe room. It is a great choice for family coming together to Pondichery.

The hotel is located in the heart of the French colony. The place is very quiet and away from busy streets of Pondicherry. The room gives you a feel of an old French room with its full sized windows and doors, made of solid wood, and copper faucets and copper wash basin. Room size is sufficient for 2 people, but...

Beautifully-designed interiors in this old, remodelled building, allowing one to stay in style, and to eat out (lovely food) in a courtyard under the stars. Everything was at is should be, and the staff were very helpful, especially the receptionist/concierge. The location is also great for walking around the White Quarter of Puducherry in the evening and taking the air... More

The location and property is lovely. The staff are also very friendly and helpful with getting autos or giving directions to nearby places. While the room was cool and comfortable, the beds need to be a larger size as my husband and I could just about fit head to toe, which was bit uncomfortable to sleep in! The view from... More

Booked the place for three nights. amazing ambience, was completely floored by the hospitality. The room was spacious and with ample amenities. Bathtub, Centrally AC, etc. Cleaning, Room service was impeccable, rivalling that of a 5 star. Restaurant is a must. Try the creme caramel in dessert.
