Positive Reviews

Charming heritage property

Guests report that this heritage property offers a charming and relaxing atmosphere. The colonial-style hotel – converted from a traditional Tamil house that is some 150 years old – is said to offer plenty of historic features, as well as a pleasant courtyard and rooftop garden. All in all, the property is said to offer a peaceful place to stay.

Welcoming hosts

The hotel is overseen by a polite and welcoming team, according to reviews. Guests are quick to praise their hosts, reporting that no task is too much, no matter how big or small. Reviews also suggest that the staff’s recommendations are spot on.

Convenient location

Guests are happy that the hotel is conveniently positioned within walking distance of many of Puducherry’s best tourist attractions. In addition to being situated just around the corner from the cathedral, the likes of the basilica and Sri Manakula Vinaygar Temple are within a kilometre of the hotel. Meanwhile, guests report the hotel is situated in a quieter neighbourhood than those closer to the beach.

Negative Reviews

Wear and tear

Reports suggest that the subpar condition of the hotel goes beyond its heritage status. Guests mention that in-room facilities and furnishings are old and outdated, while towels are well-worn and in desperate need of replacing. Additionally, cleanliness concerns are also mentioned in reviews of the property.

Compact rooms

Having been converted from a traditional home, rooms at the hotel are on the small side. Guests complain that the compactness of these rooms makes it difficult to find comfort during their stay.

Breakfast complaints

Guests mention that the complimentary breakfast provided by the hotel is very basic, often amounting to little more than eggs, bread, and jam. Furthermore, the property’s breakfast area is said to lack a suitable number of tables.
