10.0 Excellent
Pros: I booked this accommodation on a morning, planning our arrival that afternoon. I secretly let the hotel know it was my husband's birthday. When we arrived they had prepared a birthday cake, garlands for a birthday celebration and their son even did a Sanskrit recital for us! It was really thoughtful and absolutely exceeded any expectations! Ravi and his family continued to be very friendly, offering us good help and advice planning our time in Ponticherry (his map is brilliant) and our onward journeys. The room was very clean and comfortable with hot water and AC. Added bonuses really made the stay enjoyable, including a communal living area and kitchen (with free filter water) and a cool rooftop terrace with a covered seating area sectioned off to be an oasis of calm away from the chaos of the town.
Cons: There were some minor issues with some of the wifi networks, but we were able to get wifi in the common area and most of the time in our room. Ravi was looking into while we were there and I'm sure will already have it sorted!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This homestay is a gem, the most perfect place we have ever stayed in 20+ years of travelling. The owners are amazing , the house is cozy with funky creative decor, fantastically clean and taken care of with love. Oh.. and the map made by Ravi for each guest. ❤❤❤
Cons: It was only available for one night ((

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Palais de Mahe made our Pondicherry trip memorable and unforgettable! It is a premium place, therefore the price you pay for it (especially as an Indian) might be higher than elsewhere. But you do get your money's worth of experience here! 1. The staff was very helpful, right from the check-in process, when we were showed the places to visit around on a map, till the point of check-out, when they arranged an auto for us and fixed the rate for dropping us till the bus stop. 2. The hotel is designed in colonial-era style, which really transports you to a different time. The rooms feel great, with a soft scent in the air when you initially enter, and with yellow lighting that's sufficient, yet not too much. Separate shower area, refreshing toiletries, adequate supplies which are replaced on time. 3. Praise for the housekeeping staff, who ensured that the bed linen is not just perfectly made whenever we needed it, but also prompt in responding to our calls. 4. One can just talk about the pool, and never get tired. It adds a different aura to the hotel, one that is complete with beautiful pictures. Our pool time was refreshing, although it needs to be kept in mind that the average Indian is not more than 6 feet in height, so with the pool depth of 7-8 feet at one point, your safety is in your hands if you do not know swimming! 5. Breakfast at the terrace restaurant was included in our package, and I would say it was good. Praiseworthy that the hotel doesn't keep all breakfast items on buffet, which can lead to wastage, rather provides you with what you need from a set menu. I loved the bacon, masala omelette, alu parantha and their chocolate doughnuts. Also went for dinner at the terrace, wherein loved their pinacolada, but felt the pasta was lacking the finesse of one. Well, that won't take anything away from the lovely overall gourmet experience I had at the hotel. Thank you Palais de Mahe, I would love to be back to this place and recommend others!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly Staff. Good location.
Cons: Breakfast could have been better. The menu was fixed and fruits served was not fresh.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: I had gone to accord in Pondicherry for a discussion with my colleagues. There was one more colleague who was joining us from local. The management refused to let the visitor in despite providing an ID proof and despite us booking a suite for the sole purpose of a discussion. They were willing to let our colleague in only when we accepted to discuss in the conference room. When we agreed, they causally revealed that we need to pay additional money for the conference room despite us paying close to 13k for suite for two days. Extremely childish and unprofessional from management. Wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who’s going for work to Pondicherry.
7.5 Good
