This puts you in walking distance to most of the attractions in the city, and about 15 minutes drive to Auroville. The hotel itself is a beautifully restored mansion with quaint old-school room decor and a very homely feel to everything. There is no room... More

A delightful property built like a Tamil home - nice room - Pearl, makes you feel like a person from the 20th century living with the lovely balcony that overlooks the road with lots of similar homes and the wicker rocking chair. You need to remind them to clean well else a very mediocre job is done.The male manager -... More

La Maison Tamoule is located within Pondicherry. The reason to primarily choose this property was because i have previously stayed in 2 Neemrana properties and they were pretty good, however i was disappointed with La Maison. Although the check in time was at 2.. even though we arrived around 2:30, the rooms werent ready. Stayed in the room named 'Coral',... More

This one is value for money. The best thing about his place is that heritage feel u get when u enter the reception area. Yes, the rooms are spacious and baths r good, but more importantly the food is good and the service, courteous. Also less fussy unlike some of the snobbish heritage hotels, one sometimes lands oneself in.
