We wanted a laidback vacation away from hustle and pollution of Bangalore over the long weekend and while looking for serviced apartments, came across Mel Vile. The owner was kind enough to adjust us in the busy schedule. Just loved our three day stay at their penthouse property named Quartz.
The hosts, Anup and his wife Mehak, are really cool folks who made sure we had a comfortable stay and even helped with planning the itenary. Mehak welcomed us with a drink even at 11 pm and sent over an amazing homemade pasta and foccacia bread for lunch :)
They were available 24X7 over phone for smallest of things like where to shop!
Coming to the property- The place is big enough for 3-4 people with two washrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. We got complimentary wifi as well. The fact that this comes with the terrace was cherry on the cake. The interiors are tasefully done and everything around just eludes positive vibes. We had a car, and got a safe parking inside the complex itself.
Location- the place is in the french colony, very close to most places of attraction.
Staff - we hardly needed anything, everything was fully functional. But the house keeping staff was really professional as you'd expect in a 3- star hotel.
The vibe of this place is in sync with the vibe of the city. All in all, I know where to stay next time when i visit Pondicherry!
Big kudos to the hosts :) Thanks for having us!
Anup was really helpful from the beginning. Sad we couldn't extend our stay. The apartment is luxurious and well maintained. No negative points at all. Would definitely recommend.
'Melville'is located in the heart of Pondicherry. All sightseeing places are easily accessible from here. A safe & good parking facility available. We stayed at the Penthouse which is very spacious & well ventilated. Rooms are very Clean & pest free so that you can have a comfortable & No worry stay with kids at 'Melville'.
Mr. & Mrs. Anup Melwani were so supportive. They assisted with auto rikshaw & two wheeler rentals which were authentic. Ms. Mehek was really helpful & caring. Her pasta & ice cream was very yummy. Thank you so much.
We recommend 'Melville' to all those who prefer a comfortable & calm stay in Pondicherry.
Super accommodative hosts (stayed 10 days with my elderly dad and they catered to all our whimsical needs). The day we landed was a bandh with all establishments closed, but they provided us with a lovely supper. Other highlights, convenient location, lovely food from Mehak's kitchen when you need it, bright & airy space with privacy (a rarity in India), tasteful interiors, very clean and well maintained.
Am coming back next time I visit Puducherry. Thanks Anup & Mehak for making our stay warm and comfortable.
A rating of 11 out of 10 will not be out of place to express our appreciation for the warm welcome and pleasant stay accorded to us by both Anup and Mehak of MEL VILLE. Good food, well maintained rooms and decent house keeping facilities make the hallmark of a pleasant stay and all of these were evident at MEL VILLE in abundant measure. We highly recommend MEL VILLE for a stay at Pondicherry.
"Best Vacation Ever"...We had the pleasure of spending a week in early August, 2016 at the Mel Ville service apartment in Puducherry. The home was wonderful, spacious and located in the heart of the city; just a km away from the Rocky beach, it is quiet and restful. The family members were very helpful throughout our stay. Local shopping for necessities and reasonable priced restaurants were just a few miles away. We hope to return often!
From the reception towards the entry and till bidding bye, the treatment was awesome.
Very clean and tidy.
The requirements were met/answered instantly.
House keeping is very nice and the maids are very polite and obedient.
A little more roof garden would bring more ambiance.
Free WiFi may be provided. (the present offers from BSNL is much cheaper than other Operators)
The pick-up and drop was arranged by them itself, which was very convenient.
In a simple words to describe the stay... " IT'S A HOME, FAR AWAY HOME"
God bless them.
