Opted for this property due to high recommendations on TA and am glad we did. The place is an old tamil house converted into this heritage home. Everything about it is beautiful and elegant. We were there for 3 nights and Fredrick and his team ensured that we were totally comfortable.
The room was huge, we opted for the suite which was way too big for Two of us. The place was Spotlessly clean. The breakfast had something different every morning along with crispy dosas made by their Chettinad chef. If you prefer mildly spicy food then do let them know in advance as chettinad cuisine is towards the spicy side...we loved it and also the chilling fresh fruit juices.
They also have a room to inulge in massages, where they arrange a masseur from the indo franco spa...pretty good but donot expect the ambience to be very high. A basic massage for an hour costs 1000 bucks.
The washrooms are decently sized and provide hot running water round the clock.
Fredrick also helped us with our travel to and from Chennai through ganpathy travels which is next door.
Location wise, they are 5 mins fom the french quarter in an auto and hence close enough.
Only recommendtion that we made while leaving was to have bigger television sets in the rooms as the size of the room being huge, dims the tv viewing experience. If you are one of those who doesnt need a television on a holiday, then There's really nothing that you can complain about!
