“Friendly and characterful city-centre hotel”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We spent two nights at the Maison Perumal in January 2014 as part of a 30 day tour of South India. The Maison Perumal is characterful and friendly hotel located in town. The room that we were allocated on arrival proved to be extremely noisy at night as a result of constant barking by a neighbour's dog. The fact that the window would not shut tight made matters worse. We changed rooms the next day and that room was good (ask for rooms facing the inner courtyard and avoid rooms at the rear of the hotel or above the street at the front). The food quality and service at breakfast were good.

Room Tip: ask for rooms facing the inner courtyard and avoid rooms at the rear of the hotel or above the stree...

The maison perumal was the best of six hotels/resorts we experienced on a recent short visit to kerala and puduchery. The ambience is great the food good and the staff attentive and friendly. Being in the tamil quarter added to its interest compared with the portuguese/french/dutch/english quarter a block or so away.of special interest nearby (6 km south of pondy) was the site of the early ( 50-100 BC) Roman settlement at Arakamedu.

This heritage hotel was nice and clean with nice service and excellent lime drink. But not more. The breakfast was not more than good and all over the stay was average.Pondichery all over was disappointing, very far from something French as we thought.

Maison Perumal was our top choice for accommodation in Pondy but it was sold out. We stayed at the Villa Shanti, which had a better location in French quarter. We checked out the rooms at Maison Perumal and had lunch. My conclusion is that the heritage house ambience and the quality of the Kerala cuisine at Maison Perumal is superior. We also had dinner at sister hotel Palais de Mahe in Pondy. You can't go wrong with either of these 2 CGH establishments in Pondy

Please see my review of the Hotel Palais de Mahe in Pondy.
It says everything about the staff and ethos of this hotel chain.
This hotel was in the Tamil quarter of Pondy. It has 10 rooms and is a quite oasis of calm.
Again, all the staff were excellent as were the rooms and food.

We even had a cooing demonstration on one evening - interesting.
This is a quiet hotel in which to relax and unwind.
I really recommend it.
