This hotel has all the charm, age and true friendliness from the hosts. From the moment Ranji (?) and the staff took our luggage and we checked in, with the hostess giving us our traditional “third eye” as a welcome, we were happy and the hotel just felt good. We were shown to our room No. 105 which had a high ceiling for coolness, Traditional stained doors and furniture and the largest room key we have ever had, good air conditioning, TV, a good sized and comfortable bed, large bathroom with wet room shower. Because of the time we decided to have a light lunch and it proved to be an amazing experience with home cooked food, nicely presented and it had a chef’s touch with good ingredients. The hotel is situated close to shops, the bazaar and a ten minute walk from the seafront. But just sitting outside our room in the evening having a cool beer, listening to the crickets and other sounds of nature, was lovely.

The choice of breakfast was Indian or continental, all served beautifully and just what we needed. Would we stay here again – a definite yes, yes, yes.

Room tip: Any will do they are all special

It is beautiful hotel. Traditional in style, with excellent service from the always smiling and helpful staff. Well located in Pondicherry, we loved the simplicity of everything, quiet efficiency and style. If you like big corporate "global" hotels, you won't like this one! We would not hesitate to both recommend this hotel and would hope to stay again sometime in the future.
We stayed in the first floor bedroom overlooking the street with balcony, it is huge! We did feel it would be nice to have a comfortable chair or two outside the door on the patio. We mentioned this, and if by magic a daybed appeared in no time. A seat on the balcony would be nice to, in order to view the street scene, although it might be too hot to sit out there! We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast every morning. We would particulary mention the staff by name as they deserve credit for making our stay so good. So a big thank you to:-
Ranjith
Selva
Siril
Parvathy
Anjalai
and also to other staff for whom we are sorry to say we do not have names for. And also of course to Mr Fredrick.
We stayed here because my son married a young lady from Pondicherry and were here for the celebrations. The staff seemed to genuinely enjoy being part of our joy at being there for this event.
Very much look forward to returning one day.

Room tip: We enjoyed being upstairs

A quiet and well decorated Chettinad house in Pondicheery. Its a small property with 6 rooms but each one is beautifully done. The staff is courteous and helpful. Fedrick and the team is very understanding. We went out early morning on the first two days and couldn't be back for breakfast by 10.30am. But the staff were kind enough to still serve us breakfast. It was a really sweet gesture.

Its a peaceful place close to Beach, Ashram and other shopping streets. Do visit the Zuka Cafe on Mission Street for lovely Chocolate delights!

Next time if I visit Pondy and plan to stay in Tamil Quarters I would definitely pick Anantha Heritage again.

Please remember to ask for the Pondy's City Map at the Reception the day you reach. Otherwise exploring the city can be quite a task.

We stayed at Anantha heritage during last week of January. The home is very beautifully maintained in with all its heritage values. The moment you enter inside, you are welcomed by a beautifully decorated ganesha idol. Then there is traditional tika ceremony... And ur already feeling very special. The room we stayed was a standard one. While standard room is good, it is better to go for deluxe rooms as they are on first floor and provide better views. Rooms come with a huge set of lock and keys... Truly heritage style... Loved it.
Hospitality was at its best, everyone at Anantha was very courteous. I would like to mention the names of the people we interacted the most. Mr. Selva, Mr. Cyril, and Mr. Frederick.... And rest of the team members at Anantha.... You are the star at this place. Thanks for this wonderful experience. Anantha goes right at the top of the list, if you want to have an authentic Tamil town experience in Pondicherry.

We loved our stay here. Frederick and his entire team are amazing. We were easily reachable to help guide the driver and we were greated at the door and they welcomed us with a small pooja. I forgot something in the taxi and Frederick quickly went out on his motorbike and fetched it back for us.

We stayed in deluxe room in the rear off the courtyard. It is spacious, well appointment and full of welcoming aromas. The breakfast are fresh and delicious enjoyed on the covered roof terrace. The entire staff pays attention to every detail. The wifi is surprisingly fast.

We wish they had space for us to stay longer.
