    It is a beautifully done heritage property. The staff and service was very courteous, rooms were big and clean, Alfie the room service boy was helpful. Centrally located in French quarter and walkable to beach and other restaurants. Breakfast was good.
    Next door construction is going on, hardly 20 feet away, so there is no way to relax during the day as there is too much noise. There is no view from the rooms, window opens out into the corridor. One of the most expensive rooms in Pondicherry, expected a little more for this price.

    This is a truly wonderful hotel with excellent service. Don't hesitate in booking a stay here!
    From the moment we arrived, it was like stepping into paradise. The reception area was so cool and welcoming and we were garlanded with flowers and given a refreshing cool towel and delicious drink. The staff were exceptionally good and accommodated our daughter at short notice. Breakfast was a delight with such a variety on offer and excellent service. The covered terrace has a good breeze. The evening meal was good and bar very relaxing too. The pool is a great place to relax surrounded by the stunning architecture of the building. We all had treatments in the hotel which were excellent. This is a perfect place to stay in Pondicherry.
    The only thing we would change is the music that is played everywhere. It doesn't fit with the surroundings - slow piano or guitar versions of 1990s US or UK pop ballads. It could be so much more interesting - reflecting the era of the building (French jazz?) or Indian music would be ideal. It was played constantly on a loop so you knew what was coming next. Recommend either no music at all, or something different. It didn't spoil our visit, but is definitely something that would enhance the experience even more.

    Cozy Colonial Stay
    Quite a difficult question to answer, there is so many thing to like about the hotel. Courtesy, hospitality, comfort everything for that matter was super. I really cherished my stay... Usually we like to stay in modern classy hotels... this on the contrary was an experience of the colonial times... A flavor of French architecture in India... The color scheme, the ambiance, the food menu all was designed to take you decades back and understand the French lifestyle... That was good. Good thing is it wasn't half hearty attempt... somewhere the theme started and then lost in transition... Palais de Mahe, was indeed an end to end design mimic. Good stay. Thank you for making it superb.
    The time we travelled was Navaratri festive time. So our food options were totally Veg. This was hampered by seeing a set breakfast menu. Will too little options in veg. No North India option further disheartened the kids. Nothing beyond that which comes to my mind.

    Lovely stay
    The place is beautiful. The breakfast is not a buffet but on order and I love that idea.
    The rooms are no way sound proof, it was hard to sleep as we could heear every door open, every voice in the corridor

    Not just a lovely place - the people made it. Total relax around the pool also as the sea on the main beach is not swimm
    Everything . A quaint townhouse .. the staff were just out of this world . Considerate and anticipating every detail. Service at this level - and I travel every second month in India - is hard to find and at the cost , amazing value . The dinner / bfast option is highly recommended as the food was amazing also .
    That we had to leave
