If you are interested in ultra modern rooms with modern bathrooms and furniture this might not be your choice. The bathrooms needed desperately refitting and modernizing. The room had damp patches and needed a coat or two of paint. The bed was a four poster from Dupleix's time and needed considerable effort to get in. The courtyard is beautiful and...

We did our booking for this place after seeing this property on a previous trip. The property itself is an old colonial era property which has been refurbished very tastefully as a heritage hotel. We got a double room, with a unique bath/ shower. This room is suitable only for couples. If you are travelling as friends, check photos of...

This is a beautiful boutique hotel with a near-perfect location in the heart of the French quarter of Pondicherry (White Town). It's an old building converted to a hotel - each room is different and the hotel has an interesting history. However if you prefer modern hotels with great facilities, this may not be for you. Pros: Great, friendly staff...

This restaurant is a lovely place to have dinner in the evening with family or friends. Beach is around 200 meters away, evening breeze cools you down. Service is very good. Foods served here are having some french touch which brings people here. Nice place.

Nice place to go to in the afternoon if it isn't too hot. Otherwise the restaurant is a lovely place to have dinner in the evening. The food was excellent and the waiters attentive. A little pricey but you get what you pay for.

We were impressed from the word 'go'. We wanted a family room at a great location with safe roadside parking. Family rooms are hard to come by in Pondicherry.
