“Being neighbours to Mr Perumal.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Hi when i booked the rooms at anantha my wife and children were very concerned about my choice of place to stay in a place we are going to visit for the first time, but all their doubts vanished the moment they stepped into ANANTHA HERITAGE. The manager Mr Fredric and his boys Selva, Anbu and couple of them never let us feel that we were strangers meeting them for the very first time. and the 150 year house modrenised into a hotel was a real treat to the eyes.
The wakeing up to the bell of the the neighbouring PERUMAL KOIL was really a heart warming feeling bcos u are woken up as the god himself.
The heritage hotel lives up to its name maintaining utmost cleanliness, the breakfast which is served on the house both continental and south indian is sumptous to say the least.
thank u Mr fedric to have made our holiday a memorable one.

Room Tip: The room on the 1st floor facing the temple......

I ,along with my wife,stayed here for a couple of days during our visit to Puducherry recently.The small yet brightly paint and delightfully decorated court yard is sure to lift anyone's spirits.We stayed in a standard room which was very comfortable and well maintained.A definite Thumbs up for the staff who epitomized the old adage "Service with a smile".Although it's not a huge property,but going around one is definitely engulfed in nostalgia .If you happen to go there,you will understand,what I mean.And yes,keeping a snap of all the visitors in a photo album,is a unique touch,that I came across here.
The breakfast served was basically south Indian ,which was delicious and homely.I strongly recommend this place for a couple vacation or a family get-together.

We just spent a 24-hour period in Anantha. Our stay was peaceful and pleasant. We initially booked a standard room for about 2000, but upgraded to a deluxe when we saw that the room had a beautiful pond and temple view.

The whole time we were there, the place was mostly quiet enough to hear fish swimming in the pond. In the evening, shehnai music from the temples could be heard.

The manager Fredric was helpful and polite. The rest of the staff too was the same.

The 'heritage' aspect of this hotel is quiet intense. It is a 130 year old structure that has maintained most of its century-old architecture. The rooms are large and, well ... roomy.

Traveller tip - get the deluxe rooms if possible. The view of the temple and the pond, superimposed into a quiet Pondicherry evening sky will forever be etched in your mind.

It is a nice little hotel with just 6 rooms and guest-house like food. Very helpful and courteous staff, nice "home made" pickles and jam and (contrary to some review) very quiet.

If you are going with a small group, it would be like having your own bungalow in Pondy!

It used to be the mayor's bungalow and retains that old world charm

Room Tip: Order your meals at least 2 hours in advance and ask for what you want

It is real peace within the madding crowd. Rooms are nice. Staffs are good and friendly. Really felt great staying in this hotel. It is like your own house being taken cared by extremely nice staffs who are constantly eager to help and serve you. Market, Ashram is near. Only the WIFI signal is not good. You won't get inside the rooms. That's only spoiler. You cannot go out to check your mails under such hot and humid weather conditions to avail WiFi facilities.

A beautiful heritage hotel at the heart of Pondy.

Starting from reservation, it was smooth telephonic one and the Manager (Mr. Frederick, about whom there are lots of good reviews) even guided our car smoothly to the hotel through telephonic conversation with our driver. To our surprise, during check-in we came to know that Frederick was on leave. He was doing all these from his home and never for a moment let us feel that.

Now that Frederick is not there, will the hotel keep upto its name. Oh yes of course. The 2 brothers, Shiva and Sylva along with other members made our stay so very comfortable that we hardly could believe that we are outside our home. Service by each and every member is excellent and with a smile on face, even at odd hours.

Breakfast is either Continental or South Indian, based on your choice. We took continental and quantity was more than sufficient. They do not have a have standard menu, but will cook for you most of the common dishes, as yes tasty to. They even arranged customized food for my 3 yrs old daughter.

Rooms are very spacious and comfortable with a traditional touch. The location is not in the French quarter, but we preferred it as the place is more lively during the evenings while that in the French section is very remote. It depends on your personal choice.

They will arrange for all sightseeing and the cab driver (Mr. Palani, Mob No. 9095339776) is a equally excellent person.

Please stay in this hotel (or semi home I should say) for a delightful experience.
