This hotel does not feel like hotel its like going to relatives or grand parents home on holidays, the feel , rooms and friendly service . One more plus for this hotel it is situated center of heritage town you can walk just with a map all the tourist attractions and only negative is about this place doesn't have a restaurant attached , so every meal you have to go out but that is also a good thing in a way as you are situated in heritage town you can explore new places.

Room Tip: I really do;nt know but we got a very good room with 3 cots not just extra bed , the room was airy l...

I went to Pondicherry for the first time coincidentally on Valentine's day.. We reached hotel 3-4 hours prior to check-in time and the moment we entered we felt like Home.. Rajesh at the help desk was very kind to brief us about the city, places to visit and handed us a map( very handy, if u don't have already one) and explained about the nearby beaches also..
The hotel is a very silent place to stay especially for family and couples and you will find lot of foreign tourists staying at this place.. The hotel staff is co-operative and service is good. Rooms are really good and comfortable, clean and spacious.. We stayed in second floor a road facing room but it was not noisy at all. Even though it's centrally located it's not too far (from Rock Beach) or too close( to the market noise) and most of the shopping destinations are within a mile or two from the hotel.
Hotel staff is flexible in terms of their approach towards tourists and go an extra mile sometimes to keep their customers happy( can't tell you more). I recommend everyone looking out for peaceful and happy stay with good service to choose this place and last but not the least It's Value For Your Money.. :) I loved my first visit to Pondi with my girlfriend because of the hospitality of the hotel and lovely people of Pondi. Thumbs Up! to this place. Finally Enjoy Pondi.. :)
P.S. Beware of the weather and choose proper time as well esp. if you are from bangalore..Don't forget sunscreen with spf30+, cooling lens etc.. ;-)

We've traveled extensively in India and this one ranks our favorite, by far! Incredibly kind hosts, beautiful old building, and thoughtfully done modern rooms. What more could you ask. Best of all, it costs less than the cheapest, most ugly of Indian business guest houses. Also, the best internet we've experienced yet. Wifi and computer are free to use for guests. Breakfast is simple, but cheap and well done.

Would have loved to spend more than 3 nights. Unfortunately, they are booked out for a few weeks, deservedly so.

Room Tip: Ground floor has great internet access.

Stayed 8 nights and enjoyed my stay here. The hotel is well run and the family running it couldn't be nicer. The rooms are basic but clean and had a closet, which is are. I had a standard room on the roof, was dark as I couldn't open the window due to lack of mosquito screen.

Great location in the center of this quaint, old french colonial city. Would recommend this place.

Me and my friends stayed in Coramandal Heritage in Dec'12 and were absolutely charmed by the place and it's hosts. The hotel itself is a tidy and beautifully restored heritage house, very conveniently located, reasonably priced and it's VERY clean! It has enough modern convenience and at the same time so much old-world charm. And hosts of the hotel are it's best feature, they're not just friendly, we felt absolutely at home there, they made everything to make us pleased. One of us felt ill, and our hosts helped us so much to find a hospital, they escort us there and stayed with us to be sure everything is ok. I love the way they treat their guests - not even a trace of importunity but they always are there when you need help and make everything to help you. I cannot recommend this hotel enough and if I come to Pondy once again I'll definetely stay there.

Room Tip: Rooftop rooms are the best

We arrived at 6 am ,myslef my wife and my wife mother (82 years old) and from the moment we steped inside the door of this heritage house we were treated like their own family . We stayed for a month ,, yes a month and loved every minute of it . The last time we were in India was 10 years ago and that time we stayed in the 5 star Taj hotels ,so this time we decided to get a taste of the real India and booked into the coramandal heritage and all I can say is, it was fantastic .the rooms are basic ,with very good AC and tv with about 60 channels with a lot of english movie and indian movie channels on it , hot water and real comfy beds and free wifi in the reception area , the hotel was spotless and from the owner (the big boss) to his young children (the small bosses) we were treated like their family . My little honey bunny Jaya at the reception has the most lovely welcoming smile all the time and she has a great sense of humour , We always had a laugh with Jaya . Do not mind the one or 2 negative reviews here ,some people are never happy .I have travelled most of the world at this stage in my life and already I am looking forward to going back to Pondicherry and more so to the Coramandal to meet all the staff that treated us so well .
The hotel is located in a quiet street, bang in the center of town and only a 5 min walk to the beach promenade , we walked everywhere and ate in some great restaurants just 2 mins form the hotel . Jaya and the rest of the staff will organise taxis , your laundry ,etc etc ,in cfact nothing is a problem to them .The Taj hotels may have 5 stars with luxurious rooms ,but what they do not have is what the Coramandal has is the athmosphere of friendlyness.. take my good advice and stay a night or 2 here , we stayed for a month and loved it ...

Room Tip: first floor and 2nd floor rooms are great . you can relax out on the balcony in the evening and the...

The rooms in this guesthouse are an amazing value, especially for Pondicherry. We arrived with three people and asked for one double and one single. The doubles (with A/C and TV) are usually around 1300Rs (which is already good value for Pondi) but they gave us two doubles for less than 2000Rs. The owners were really friendly and we had a laugh negotiating the price. Depends on the season ofcourse. The guesthouse is atmospheric but the rooms could use a makeover. It was really clean though, with a nice soft bed and a frrreeezing A/C!

Room Tip: The doubles seemed similar, the single room downstairs was poor.
