Really liked this place. We had no reservations and they were very accomodating. Manager charming.
Had to switch rooms a number of times so we saw a lot of them. The pricing structure really reflects the room quality. We stayed in one of the lowest priced rooms (perfectly nice and quiet and clean) as well as one of the highest priced rooms (spacious, fabulous bathroom, nice old furniture, basically 4-star) The prices seem very fair to me -- I wish more hotels would acknowledge the differences in the rooms and price accordingly. That said, even the cheapest room here was more than fine-- the only one I would avoid is the one at the top of a somewhat scary spiral staircase.
Courtyard restaurant is lovely for hanging out and reading/snacking etc. Food was good and service pleasant. Location fabulous. Giftshop ridiculously overpriced. Pooled tipping system -- I wish more places would do that.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Only a French flirtation with India’s bewildering diversity could have produced the refined and elusive magic of ‘Pondicherry’ which contains the magic of the whole Orient in one name. Now, this French 18th century coastal lifestyle in India is brought alive again in a home which is a virtual art gallery with etchings and hand written postcards all over its walls. Recreated in high-raftered ceilings with savonnerie rugs and easy chairs to lounge away the afternoons. Four poster beds – (one accessed by three stairs ! ) – to help you recreate your past with dreams. Savour a French mansion full of Indian warmth. Enjoy fine Creole eating where Tamil spices mix with subtle French under-statement to titillate the palates of gourmets. ... more less
