Laila's County was known as Mercure Hotel earlier, but after the rechristening, there has been a tremendous change in terms of interiors, quality of food and service.

The interiors are simply out of the world and are thoughtfully crafted.

The designer A/cs look cool and comfortable.

The beds are comfortable but small. The bathrooms are cramped but sufficient.

The food is simply superb and the hospitality is excellent.

The location even though noisy is bang in the middle of the tourist district.

It was expected that laila country is a standard hotel .But it was truly unexpected that they offer such a luxury for very very reasonable price.Their breakfast Buffy is just the additional gift that every visitor expects and is never disappointed!

The hotel I wanted to stay in was booked so tuk tuk driver took me here. Reception was excellent as Lakshmir was and continued to give service without any hesitaion in anyway possible. The men were also available immediately for all you needs. Bed was alittle to soft for me. As mentioned room was alittle small but no problem. Modern decor. Only issue really for me was dim lighting so I couldn't read in bed but would go back if in the area without hesitation

The hotel is clean. Nice & helpful staff. Nice design. A bit small, but no problem. The bed is too soft. The food is dilicious. I didn't find Pondicherry is an interesting place to visit. However, I'm lucky to have a nice place to stay overnight.

I had read reviews on Trip advisor and made my booking here..It surely was value for money..
the rooms arent that spacious..but neat and clean with a good setting..the breakfast was good but it takes time to replenish if there is a good crowd..the beach is walking distance away..the hotel has no parking..but the drivers park it on the main road and there is a security guard posted.
the restaurants are good and there is a bar on the terrace..

Room Tip: The road to this hotel is a one way..so ensure you go a little ahead take a right and come round to...
