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... More

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... More

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.... More

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.

This was my second time in Patricia's place. The last time I visited 7 years back. That time Patricia alone was managing the show, now she has Michele his son to support. As usual wonderful experience, this time it was more so because we had our one and a half year old kid. It's refreshing every time I come here,... More
