The location is the best thing of this Hotel. - White Town with less than 5 min walking to Beach, Notre Dame des Anges Church and popular Art Cafe's in Suffren St. I had booked a room with Balcony, which was well kept and a great spot for talking great photos and spending sometime with loved ones. The room is centrally airconditioned. WiFi connectivity is also good. Also Vodafone and Airtel network connections are not that great. There is no geyser and the hot water tap was not running hot water either. The bed was too soft for my comfort. Taking a twist from one side to the other was a trouble in itself. We tried the restaurant in the hotel which serves good quality n quantity food but waiting for service in the afternoon is more than 10 mins. Also they serve beer and liquor but a very high price starting from 200 Rs. for 500ml where as in Pondicherry a 1 liter beer bottle is available for just 100 Rs. Also, the spread for morning breakfast is not up to standard, like sautéed vegetables and sausages could had been better in taste.

The room quality is not very airy...The breakfast spread is not good either..The service, quality and hospitality is very poor...Even you need to wait for 30 mins just for a cup of coffee and the manager has some lame excuses for this. The overall experience is very poor...I will not recommend this place to anyone who likes quality...The only positive is the location of this property...

I had a real bad experience with these people at Le Chateau, Pondicherry. I had booked for 2 days for April 18th. The payment of 13K was made in advance. Because of the covid lockdown, the date was postponed to May 17th. However May month was also bad due to the pandemic. I called them up to cancel and understandably, du to the lockdown, there was no one at the hotel. The owner Mr.Kevin replied over email that someone will reach out whenever they can. And then after around 42 days in June end they sent a mail that the booking is for July 15th. I never saw the email and they never bothered to call and inform. On July end, when the lockdown was better I decided to call them up for the stay. To my horror they reminded me of the mail and said they they have cancelled and my amount stands forfeited due to a no-show. I pleaded with them about my case, and the fact that all this is happening due to natural causes and not my personal issues. The hotel manager Mr. Udayshakar just gave me a cold shoulder I asked them how can they reply, after 42 days, over email and confirm on their whims and fancies. And then the most obvious question, if I was a no show on the first night(booking was for 2nights), why did they not reach the guest to see if everything is fine, what if I had an accident. The hotel management then started ignoring my emails and phone calls. I lost 13K, and worst it left a bad taste as I was not expecting such a behavior from the management of a so called luxury hotel. Its a community which is trying to come out of bad times (pandemic) and here we have an establishment profiting from it. Stay away from it, the only good thing is its location, But there are better and cheaper places in Pondicherry around it.

Located at White Town, the lovely French Quarter of Pondicherry, the hotel is just 3 minutes walk from the beach promenade and Rock Beach. And within easy walking distance from everywhere in White Town. The hotel building looks nice. It doesn't have a car parking facility of its own but that's not really a problem as there is enough roadside parking available in the neighborhood. The room was adequate in size and clean and equipped with a flat screen TV, an electronic safe and an electric kettle. The cupboard was a little small and surprisingly there was no fridge. The bathroom was clean, well equipped and there was good water pressure in the shower. We did however felt the need for a few hooks on the door for hanging stuff! Room service was satisfactory. The hotel reception was efficient and helpful. The continental buffet breakfast provided in the top floor restaurant was nice. A few South Indian items were on the menue as well. The restaurant & bar was spacious, comfortable and had a good view and ambience. Service was good.

We recently stayed there for 5 days. The location is excellent, in white town, just a couple of minutes away from the promenade beach. It's a boutique, heritage villa, not too big but comfortable. The check in was smooth, the house keeping was ok. We had a balcony room which overlooked the street, so no great view or privacy. Also mind you that the balcony is a shared one, and very long narrow one so it's not ideal for sitting out. The room size is ok, not too big. Infact the rooms without the balcony are very small. The room had air con, tv, basic toiletries, water bottle, tea coffee sachet and a kettle. The breakfast was served on the roof top restaurant. It was continental and pretty basic. Eggs, bread, cornflakes, milk, juice, fruits, pancakes, sausages, stir fried vegetables, tea coffee. It got monotonous after two days. The location is absolutely fantastic. Walking distance from all the great cafes and promenade beach. All in all its a nice, clean, comfortable place to stay at.

Le Chateau is a nice and quaint little hotel smack in the middle of White Town. So location wise you can’t get better than this. Just step out of the hotel and go for those relaxing walks and visit cafes that are at stone’s throw away. The rooms are nice, cozy and clean. Kudos to the housekeeping staff. The food at the restaurant is good. We had dinner once at the restaurant. Although the same can’t be said about the breakfast, the fair was limited and nothing much to write home about. Pros Location, location, location Value for money accommodation Nice clean rooms, good housekeeping Dinner at the restaurant is good Cons Breakfast spread is very limited and not that great Wifi service is poor No dedicated parking space, you have to park on the street (though most of the hotels in White Town have this issue)

Outstanding to say the least. The entire experience starting from the booking, arrival, stay, food, the host (Emile), the staff, the room, roof top restaurant were of top notch. Nothing to complaint about. Rooms were kept clean throughout and all the staffs had good hygine, always wore masks. The only nit picky drawback is the small size of the bathrooms, but honestly everything else makes up for it. Just 2-3 mins walk from the beach. We stayed in the balcony room overlooking the street (photo attached). A special shout out to ever smiling Emile (the manager) who helped us with all of our questions and guided us to opt(or opt out) for certain tour plans. Fantastic experience.

We had a very good dinner! French and Italian food is very good, I think the best I ate in Pondicherry for that price. Beef steak and crostini with mushrooms were awesome! The staff is very friendly and the kitchen is open.
