The stay was very homelike and comfortable. The staff is very courteous and friendly. Their local cuisine food is the best one can get in Pondicherry and is a must try.
Location is also good, not in white town though but very very close to it in a quiet neighbourhood. Both white town and the market is really close to the hotel making our stay very pleasant and enjoyable.

Stayed: September 2017

You step in Maison Perumal and it would take you back to the old world. You will remain charmed during your stay here. Food is fantastic and the curries are just fantabulous. Not far from beaches and the tourist spots, you can walk or hire a two-wheeler from the rental agency next door.

Staff are helpful and warm and go all the way in extending hospitality.

Its a must stay hotel!

Single night stay in this hotel which is an excellent choice for Pondicherry. Rooms are spacious and have the old world charm to them. This place is within easy reach of major monuments but we used the cycle rickshaw service to visit these places which is next best thing to exploring the place on foot.Learnt a thing or two during culinary demonstration. Food was excellent too. You would feel at home just like we did.

My wife and I chose to stay here for a weekend in July 2017 and completely enjoyed our time there.The hotel is a large, beautifully restored, 130-year old home. Perfect blend of classic Tamil Nadu architecture and completely modern facilities. The hotel is a visual treat and the staff provided wonderful service. They allowed us to check-in early and check-out late, which was very helpful. Centrally located, so once we drove in, we could just walk everywhere and didn't need the car at all.

The rooms are tastefully appointed, but if you want to relax in the room, the TV has NO English entertainment channels, so carry your own entertainment or a book. The beautiful restaurant also had only traditional Tamil Nadu cuisine, so for me that was a bit of a let-down. Also, there is only limited street parking.

Notwithstanding the TV channels selection (considering the tariff of the room) and limited food options, the hotel is fantastic and I highly recommend it. A 4.5-Star rating would be my rating.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are quietest. Call the hotel when you're nearby, to clear parking for you on the narrow street in front of the building.

Staying in this hotel was a great choice. The building itself is an old structure from colonial times- Pondicherry was at one time a French and also a British colony. But the building is well-maintained with a patio in the middle, and the rooms (it has maybe a dozen rooms) around the patio spread over two floors. The ground floor, what we'd call first floor in the US, has the lobby, restaurant, bar, etc. The rooms are on the second and third floors- referred as first and second floors there. Rooms are ample, especially for a small hotel, and have a decent-size bathroom.
I ate lunch there a couple of times and in both instances the food was excellent
The hotel is situated close to the center of town (is there a center?), but also a short 15 minute walk to the beach.
I can see why Pondicherry is an attractive vacation spot. And Maison Perumal makes it better.
