It's been almost a year since our visit to this beautiful town of Pondicherry, and this review was long time pending.
This is as close to a rich cultural and homely experience you can get, excellent hospitality, wonderful ambiance, convenient location, you name & this place has it all. Words cannot do justice to the kind of experience that we had here - kudos to Mr. Fredricks & his team for that.
I definitely look forward to visit this place again, and have given recommendations to all my friends / relatives.
Happy New Year, Thanks & Cheers !

Room tip: Rooms on 1st floor facing the small pond and temple is beautiful.

We tried mango hill and anatha while in Pondicherry and Anantha is a 5 star resort compared to mango hill a little farther up the road. While we didn't have a lot of hot water, we had big rooms, great breakfast, excellent service, and a very happy stay. We stayed out late one night and the people at the front desk waited for us to get home. Excellent place.

My stay at the Anantha Heritage was too short! Beautiful, well-kept old building, well-situated on a quiet street - a short stroll from both the kitsch, slightly camp and self-conscious faded old colonial lanes and the bustling, vibrant markets and shops of real modern day Puducherry. Anantha Heritage fits better into the former category. Great for a solo traveller who wanted to explore the town on foot [and the occasional tuk tuk].
The wifi was eventually good - double check you have the right one - there was some confusion.
Rooms are well appointed, spacious, clean and lacking nothing. Service with a 'professional' smile was fine.
I enjoyed breakfast on the terrace overlooking the water and greenery between the hotel and the neighbouring temple [no noise except beautifully for that of birds in the trees]. There were some honeymooning couples staying and I could totally see that it would be a romantic location.

Room tip: I stayed on the ground floor in a room fronting on the street - fine for a city-dweller who is used to some street noise. The staff were happy to show me another room [also good] and I chose this one.

My father was more interested in exploring a southern heritage. So today I decided to book this property for 2 days at last minute of their arrival in Pondicherry. Mr. Fredrick was courteous enough to accommodate this last minute booking. Though my parents are have stay for another day here but still I thought to share their feedback below:
1. Warm welcome for them with traditional tilak was a nice gesture.
2. Its a real heritage experience for those who wants to explore actual southern lifestyle.
3. Staff was happy to honor Vegetarian food request made to them.
4. Location is in center of town.
5. Food is good.

Overall seems a good choice till now.

This is a very good Heritage hotel, which does not look like a hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean. Hotel is actually a traditional Tamil House, converted into six room hotel. So you actually walk into a house, welcomed in the traditional way with a Pooja Thali.
All rooms have an opening into the verandah, and green plants greet you in every direction. Selection of furniture matches the Heritage tag. No leaking taps in bathrooms which are spacious.
Room service staff is quick and courteous. The small , three table restaurant on the first floor is a place for having your meals in a relaxed manner.
The only negative is the location in a crowded street, but the Pondichery streets are not very crowded by Indian Standards.

Room tip: If you have no problems in climbing the stairs, a room on first floor is better. On the ground floor, last room in the verandah is the best one.
