Hi We stayed here for 7 nights. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. The pool was great. The beds and pillows are so comfortable and the staff are very friendly. We had breakfast here every morning, the food was ok but could be better. There was a lot of work being done but it didn't really affect our stay.

Came to India and in particular Pondicherry with the usual concerns of a first tome visitor to India. The hotel is undergoing renovations but still has a old world charm that they are retaining. Rooms are large and clean, again with Indian charm. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool is grand and cooling. Loved our stay.
