This was the first hotel we arrived at in india, and was the perfect welcome to the country. We were very jet-lagged so slept really late on the first morning, but virginia kept breakfast for us so we could eat late. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, and courtyard is lovely relaxing. It is located in a very peaceful street close to the sea, although the beach has been completely swept away and it is not so much of a swimming place at all any more. Pondicherry is a good base to explore the local sights.
