My partner and I stayed there for 2 days in February, what a fabulous place, very large rooms, ceiling fans and mossie net over the large step up bed. Beautiful enclosed garden. Very clean with antiques in abundance. We have recommended this guest house to others on our India. Travels and when next in Pondi will definitely stay there again. CH is in the French quarter of Pondi 2 streets back from the waterfront of the Bay of Bengal. A simply beautiful guest house with breakfast included, the tariff was 2200 Rps per night for the 2 of us. Also, we had a private dining area attached to the outside of the bedroom. The guest house breakfast room is set in a covered area in the lively garden. We have stayed all over India and for this price, comfort and location you can't go wrong. The French joint owner is really lovely and very helpful. FULL MARKS.
