After a couple of weeks traveling India, we were after a little French luxury in Pondicherry. We found nothing particularly French about Pondicherry, but this hotel was nevertheless a great place to stay – very clean and comfortable with excellent facilities. The hotel, located in the French Quarter of ‘Pondy’, is small (around 20 rooms over 3 levels). The building...

Palais de Mahe is a wonderful boutique hotel built in the French colonial style in the French district of Pondicherry. Although it is a relatively new hotel, the atmosphere captures the sense of the old French colonial days. Our room was very large with high ceilings and furnished with dark wood pieces. Outside the rooms is comfortable seating where one...

We stayed at this lovely hotel and had breakfast here as well as a lunch. The breakfast was buffet of fruit and then made to order for the rest of the meal. My husband had a delicious omelet and I had Dosa Masala. Both were delicious and nicely served. Lunch was just a sandwich and fries but it was tasty.
