It was our first time to be in India and we came start straight from Mumbai, Chennai then travelled 3 hours to Pondicherry.
We booked in this hotel and stayed there for 2 amazing months. All the staff are so friendly, so helpful. From the security guards, to the waiters, up to the manager.They all speak good English, and French. You see, it was colonized by French before so you will see so many beautiful architectural buildings, temples and so many tourist...
We had breakfast, lunch and dinner in their restaurants.And what is so nice about them is that they cooked the specific food that we like.My husband is allergic to spicy food. And since South India is known for the too much spicy food, all the food are so spicy and delicious.But they're so nice to accommodate my husband's food preference.
The hotel is so clean, one of the oldest hotel in the area. Also it has all the amenities that you need and right in the center of the city.They will guide you to see the best places in Pondicherry, old churches, beautiful beaches,
Also so many things to buy for souveniers, antiques, clothes, everything...So many restaurants for foreigners...
It was indeed an unforgetable experience since we found a family in India...they treated us not as guest but as family.
Until now we communicate with them because it's just the beginning..meeting good people.
I am so happy to be in Pondicheery and in this hotel.
I recommend this hotel to everyone and please visit Pondicherry...one of the most amazing places in India.
I will never stop from talking about my experience in this place...if you want to go to India..please visit this place and stay in this hotel. They can also offer you good package if you stay much longer...A lovely hotel for a lovely place...
