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

Charming hosts, nice neat and clean room for great price. Hosts very helpful with ideas of things to do around town. Fantastic location for walking round popular areas of Pondy. Cute roof top social area with view of cathedral. Would stay longer if I could.

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

Me and my friend had to leave our room (in another guesthouse in Pondicherry) as we decided to stay longer in town, so we asked around and found this amazing place. We were so surprised to find such a great colonial atmosphere and we fell in love straight away with the room on the second floor. Finally after 2 months... More

I stayed here for two nights. I really liked it here. The staff and Sabine were very genuinely friendly and it was very pleasant to stay there. I also liked the free breakfast, it was very tasty. It had a good location, and the Wifi was good. It is close to everything important. THe beds are super comfy as well.

It was my second stay there at Sabine's place, an energetic and smily french owner who knows a lot about Pondi and is very keen to share informations and good tips. Just delightful again. The place is beautiful, the rooms have a breezy balcony with little Tamias (squirrels) visiting you, and it is adapted to our standards for mosquito protection... More

We stayed in this wonderful guesthouse for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Each one is it's rooms seems to have a private outside space, and it's a wonderful oasis of calm and tranquility. We were lucky enough to be able to stay in the coloniale suite for one night; simply stunning. The staff and owner are... More

I stayed here for 4 nights and would have stayed longer had my plans permitted it. Entering the door from the somewhat noisy exterior is entering another world full of plants, quiet, bowls of flowers and a vast collection of memorabilia, obviously collected with love and care. I had a splendid room: terrace with table and chairs, large bed and... More
