My boyfriend and I were on our way to the quaint neighborhood of White Town. The rooms at the hotel were breezy, and had every bit of French influence that one would expect. The rooms were spacious. Food however isn't their strongest point but hospitality is definitely on point. Will definitely return again.

Me and my girlfriend spent two nights at this property. Located at White Town, with a stone’s throw from the beach, this hotel’s location is absolutely fantastic. The rooms were large and airy, with a striking French influence. The balcony area is really very pleasant to sit in the evenings. The food at the hotel was decent. It certainly needs improvement. What blew us away was the service. It was top notch! We even got upgraded to a bigger room on the second day because our door locks were not working properly. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to stay at Pondicherry.

With a 5 mins walk to the rocky beach, this hotel is located in the heritage part of Pondicherry. Amazingly big and spacious rooms, good food and a super courteous staff makes the hotel a complete package in itself. We visited the hotel during the first weekend of March 2021. We had booked standard rooms but were upgraded to premium ones on request. The rooms were nicely done and well loaded with all required amenities and the pool was super clean and well maintained. The food tasted really nice and the chef was accommodating enough to alter certain menu items to suit our taste (given that we had kids and a senior citizen travelling along). They also agreed to serve half portions of main course items to help us order some variety. All in all, a great stay definitely worth a second visit.
