We were at Patricia's the last weekend and it was a lovely place to stay. The guest house is beautifully done and the rooms (especially on the first floor) are a treat to stay in. The house is full of an eclectic mix of curios, potted plants and paintings. Location is excellent, right in the heart of the French city...

I haven't met meaner hosts before. From the day we arrived the hosts were so mistrustful. They tried to squeeze every penny out of us. They were so miserly about everything: they charged 200 for a breakfast of a cold bagel, a hard baguette, and coffee that needed to be warmed again . The last thing we wanted was to...

We stayed in one of the top floor rooms which are slightly more expensive, the lower floor rooms are cheaper, slightly smaller, but just as lovely. It was absolutely beautiful, spotless and full of character. The whole house is full of years of collecting memories and antiques giving it such warmth. Oliver, the son, is a keen botanist so the...

I don't have enough words in my vocabulary to explain the amazing experience that my friends and I had at this guest house. Everything about it was just perfect. It's located in the French part of town, a stone's throw away from the beach. There are lots of upscale restaurants and coffee shops as well as cheap but good restaurants...

For the price, one expects a television with a good cable connection, bathroom attached to the room and not outside and basic toiletries and tea making ingredients (tea kettle provided).

The guesthouse is ideally situated in the French neighborhood in a quiet street where you can walk to visit the typical streets of Pondicherry or go to the sea road. I really liked the decoration of the place, bright colors and many decoration objects and paintings creating a warm and peaceful atmosphere. Many plants and a very nice terrasse roof....

The place is located in french colony. Near to the beach road. Quite and calm location. The ambiance is very good and room is very clean. The owners are very friendly. Choose a AC room so that you enjoy the stay in humid weather. Had a nice vacation at this location.
