Good place, value for money. Friendly staff. Good food and great ambience. Only improvment area - is bath tub which is of bronze, and the shower height. The towels were used and needed to be bought new. Staff was super smiley and friendly.

A very small, serene and peaceful hotel. Found about it on TripAdvisor the pictures appealed us so much we decided to make our bookings here despite other suggestions from your travel adviser.

This is a beautiful heritage hotel that is is in the heart of Pondy and a stones throw away from all that the french quarters in this part of the country has to offer. Everything in the mansion and around it screams of a bygone era. As you walk around the streets here, don't be surprised to see the locals... More

We were in Pondy for just 24 hours, and checked in by 7 PM. There was a mix-up by the reservation people- one room for two nights instead of two rooms for one night. This was sorted out quickly by the staff, who made us quickly welcome. Then, we went into---the past ! The hotel is made up from a... More

We booked LMT after reading the reviews in Tripadvisor. As none of my friends have stayed with Neemrana, we did not have anybody to get first hand review. But still the positive reviews gave us hope that this will be special. Finding the hotel itself was a challenge. Being between two very busy streets, In think, this particular road did... More

I would give this place perhaps five stars but we only stayed a weekend and that was perhaps a little too short. Nice restaurant and spacious rooms and centrally located with about 10-minute walk to the beach/promenade. Helpful staff and child friendly. Staff did their best to accommodate the 2-yr-old travelling with us in terms of providing warm milk and... More

We were in Pondicherry for the Auroville marathon over a weekend and it turned out be an amazing weekend getaway. We were a little apprehensive about the place, given the hustle bustle of the Nehru Street. But once we turned the corner, the old tamil mansions lined up in the street transported us to another century. This is a mansion... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On a distinctive Tamil street of Pondicherry with red-tiled verandahs and seating platforms, lies La Maison Tamoule. This street was restored under the Asia Urbs Programme. Polished red-tile Attangadi floors surround a pillared courtyard over two floors. The verandahs lead to the rooms with Burmese teak doors and furniture. Light filters through a translucent roof above and the windows in the rooms tint the sunlight with their stained glass panes. This Baroque, Franco-Tamil architecture represents the same fusion as the colonial furniture and Creole food of Pondicherry. ... more   less
