The Gratitude Heritage Home is a homely and beautiful place in the old French town of Pondicherry. The rooms are in colonial style, and there is taken great care of every aesthetic detail. There is a nice courtyard with plants and a large Ganesha statue, where breakfast is also served, and a sheltered roofterrace with a large bed, where one can lie in the wind being both indoor and outdoor at the same time. Staff is nice and very helpful. A peaceful and very nice experience. On the negative side; the beds are very hard and the internet grumpy.
