Reviewed 16 December 2013

Was in Pondy from 12th to 15th Dec, my booking was already done at LC. I had read reviews beforehand and checked photos. Very friendly staff, good and quick room service, room was compact but had all facilities including wardrobe with locker, small fridge. Toilet was clean and neat. Complimentary breakfast was included in package which was really good. Food is expensive and parking is bit far from hotel. Overall, very good experience.

Decided to stop in Pondi before heading to Chennai and checked in to Lailas county about 12 pm and Gayathri at the reception was nice to upgrade one of our rooms so that both the rooms were on the same floor. Though the room was small, it was well designed and the mattress was really thick. The only fault probably was the positioning of the AC which was right behind the head of the bed.(you could just sleep the other way and problem solved). The views aint that great but was really close to the beach and that helped.The morning complimentary breakfast was bit delayed as I think, the same waiters had to double as the cooks too, but the food was good.They dont have an adjacent parking lot however a few blocks away and they have a plot which can accommodate just about 4 cars. Serves the purpose.

Visited Pondicherry on 7th December without a hotel booking. Wandered around and looked at a couple of hotels which were not too great. Then I passed by Laila's county, I recalled the images from Trip Advisor. I spent no time and went in to enquire.
The reception was warm and made us feel at home. We took a club room and it was great.
Small and compact but everything was in place. The bathroom was hygienic and clean.
Room service was excellent.
Planned for 2 days but ended up staying an extra day.
The food was very good. The cocktails in the Dragon restaurant in the 5th floor are a must try.
The property is in a very good location close to the beach.
Will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Club rooms with windows facing the road

i read a lot of reviews on LC but just like someone had mentioned, from outside, it was just an ordinary building but you step it, you feel a warm-home feel... the room we took was the executive and it was delightful. it was small and cozy and well kept. the bathroom was tidy and the air smelled nice. definitely a place worth staying for... thanks LC for making it so comfortable...... we will visit again

Except for the receptionist unruly behaviour for a late check out everything else was fantastic. The rooms and amenities, other staff. The food was a bit spicy.
It is very close to the beach and it is only a 5 min walk from the hotel. Has valet parking. Nice stay. Would love to come back again.

It was totally a different experience that in par with quality and service that me and my family could enjoy the stay in Lailas County.

Infact it was much more than what we expected in terms of excellence in service.

Food at the restaurents is yet another thing that should be given extra ordinary remark.

I would surely be recomending my friends about this great place.

Wish the team, a very best!

Traveling to pondicherry was a big headache earlier..especially because of poor accoomadation facilities.The hotels in pondicherry are either costly or provides horrible service and food.But this time i was fully delighted at the "Laila's county"hotel - a true value for money! After a long drive from Kerala i checked -in to the hotel at wee hours..but the hotel authorities pleased me and my friends by providing a delicious dinner even at those odd hours of night.The rooms were cozy,neat and furnished to international standards.The toilets were clean and tidy.The hotel being located at the heart of the pondicherry town is the best place to stay,just because its easy to access places around the crowded town. you hardly would need a vehicle to travel! The best part is that this hotel is located just a 100 metres away from the beach.One could walk to the beach at any hour of the day! The restaurants at the hotel is a place to tickle your gustatory instincts...the variety of dishes these guys provide is just awsome. You would love to come back to the hotel for the kind of food they provide!!On top of all these ,the hotel provides internet facility for 24hrs too..thank you lailas county for the kind of hospitality you offered.I just felt home away from home..
