Laila's County
Ranked #50 of 83 Hotels in Pondicherry
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Stayed in the Standard room for 2 days, telephonically booked the room directly at the hotel through Ms. Lakshmi. Very simple and hassle free booking. The room is small, however it has all the facilities that you would expect from a good hotel. The bathroom was spotless. The location is perfect; walking distance to the ashram and the beach.

The staff is also very friendly and attentive.

Definately worth a mention is The Cucina Restaurant. EXCELLENT quality of food with great taste. Good to know that a small hotel is focused on quality

Stayed in the Suite for 4 days in during Christmas '12. Right from the time you enter the hotel, u feel so welcome!! The staff is very friendly and extremely hospitable. They have their own restaurant which serves amazing food...try their Continental & Indian cuisine. The room service is super prompt.
The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the promenade beach...The rooms are not that big but have been arranged very well...as they say good things come in small packages!!Even though the rooms are small, they have been given a modern & luxurious touch!
Would definitely recommend this hotel :))

Fairly new hotel in pondicherry, booked directly at the hotel thru Ms. Lakshmi, she gave us a good deal for Club rooms(2nd Category rooms), since we were reaching pondicherry around midnight, while booking they allowed us to check out at the regular check out time of 12noon, thereby allowing us to stay for almost half day extra and infact we even got late during our check out by another 1 hour and they absolutely did not have any issues with that.

Nice Staff, Terrace restuarant is nicely done, gives a small view of ocean. Did not try the breakfast but ordered room service for the dinner and kitchen chef/staff were absolutely amazing to suggest and make some special dishes on our demand which were not even listed on the menu and they tasted delicious.

Coming to room, room size was Ok to stay as in not very big or not very small, we heard that the first category rooms are smaller. Rooms are very very nicely done up, fabulous interiors with wooden flooring, soft led lightings, rooms and bathrooms are clean and well maintained, nice plush pillows and extra comfortable mattress followed by the very effective AC in sultry pondi weather ensured a sound sound sleep. They also have a mini bar in the room, a working
desk, big lcd tv, tea coffe maker replinshed daily. Housekeeping staff did not hesitate to fulfill any and every request of ours.

Hotel is very very nearby to the rock beach and other market area of Pondi. They do have a car parking but a bit away from hotel for which they do have a valet service. Overall a very nice comfortable and good hotel with 5* room design and comfort to ensure a amazing stay given the price they charge(we have seen other hotels charging so much while giving zero service and ordinary rooms).

Rooms appear exactly similar to teh pics they have posted on their website/tripadvisor.

It was a gr8 stay at the executive room in this hotel. It was just five minutes walk from the Pondicherry beach. The rooms though a little small in size had all facilities you can ask 4. Food was gr8.

Very nice hotel, with very helpful stuff. Small but clean and modern rooms. Location is not perfect, but everything is in walking distance. Rooftop restaurant is OK, with good food.The Staff are prompt and gave excellent customer service. They also selected a chauffer driven cab for traveling to aurovile and mahabalipornam.
