There are so many great things about colonel heritage- the location, the decor, the rooms. Uniquely decorated with no detail spared, you really feel like you're in a French oasis. Beds were comfortable and showers great! Would be amazing if they did food also..

Good location in the centre of Pondicherry, close to the sea, very quiet. The rooms are nice, comfortable and clean. For breakfast you can have a French breakfast, a good surprise, the staff is kind and helpful.

Pondicherry (Now also called “Puducherry’) was the chief French settlement of colonial India. The French section of Pondicherry has streets that are laid out in a well-planned grid pattern and are best explored through leisurely walks especially for experiential travelers like me.The buildings are easily recognizable by their elaborate doorways, garden courtyards with multicoloured bougainvilleas and the buildings themselves are...

This hotel is a converted French colonial mansion. It is stunning; the front garden, in particular, is a delightful haven, as it was presumably designed to be, from the heat of India. The owner is friendly and attentive. The staff are engaging and entertaining. However, this is not a cheap hotel, and for the price we expected rather more than... More

My friend and I stayed at La Coloniale for three days in early November. Believe me, this is a beuatiful place! The rooms are decorated with fabulous old Indian antiques and artwork. The environment is quirky, romantic, clean and quiet. The staff, including Sabine, the owner, are really nice, and the location is on a beautiful old street in the... More

This was the best part of our stay here in Pondicherry. We stayed at the Le Studio room and fell in love with it. The place has a very warm feel to it and you get beautiful vibes the moment you step in. The greenery and the architecture really take you back in time. Close to the promenade and French... More

Coloniale Heritage is a nice homestay in the French colony of Pondicherry. It has very nicely done rooms with lots of charming artefacts. The rooms are clean and bathroom is basic but well maintained. We had an issue with AC in our room and the owner Sabine was kind enough to move us to other room where AC was functioning... More
