We have stayed in many "heritage" type hotels in India and sadly the Orient did rather disappoint.The building is lovely and with interesting decor. However for a hotel in this price range rather too shabby and not enough Chic! The restaurant and staff there were however excellent and much recommended. I do think Neemrana's need to attend to various aspects...

The stay was very pleasant... the staff was extremely helpful .. location is also good. However I felt that the maintenance could be better. If anyone has ever stayed at any neemrana property then you will know exactly what to expect.

Hmmm, nope, never again... Have been here last 3 days and checking out tomorrow - but clearly a failure on behalf of Neemrana for which we are paying the price. After very delightful experiences recently with couple of other Neemrana properties - Neemrana Fort and Glasshouse on Ganges - one feels totally misled coming here. Where do I start... Positive...

It is as good serviced & maintained as any Neemrana property can be. Located near the Paradise beach & walking distance from most of the local visting places & markets. Converted from a chettinad heritage property, rooms are spacious & tastefuly done in the old charmed way. Staff is courteous & more than helpful. Its small restaurant is visited even...

This was long due and this again was a group drive with about 13 cars and similar families together. The hotel was completely under our control, well almost, and the rooms 13 in all were ours. The rooms were big and in all manners classic. My room was the second biggest and had an exclusive balcony and is called Karaikal....

We enjoyed a lovely meal in the garden restaurant with great food, very efficient and attentive staff, and really nice evening ambience. I had always wanted to dine there and we were very happy with the experience.

When we decided to visit Pondicherry, everyone told us the only place to stay was this "boutique" hotel. So we booked the very expensive Mahe suite. What a terrible experience! The suite, next to courtyard, was dark and noisy, impossible to open windows as everyone can peer in. The bathroom was dirty, with broken fittings. Part of the bedroom wall...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to learn that your visit did not turn out as expected and are writing to apologize and to offer an explanation. As you may be aware, there is regular maintenance work that is required since the property is a heritage one. Unfortunately there have been delays at our end because...

This was my 2nd stay in a Neemrana hotel and I am happy that I chose them again. Neemrana's Hotel De L'Orient has an old world charm and offered the exact colonial experience that I expected in Pondicherry. As soon as you enter the hotel, you will be transported back in time to the colonial era - feeling that you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The magic of the whole Orient in one name: Pondicherry, where the French set up a new coastal lifestyle. Only a French flirtation with India’s bewildering diversity could have produced the refined and elusive magic of Pondicherry. Now, this French 18th century in India is brought alive again in a virtual art gallery with etchings and hand written postcards.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
