I don't quite know how they do it but their winning formula is an example to any business. They get the big things right, they don't miss the small details. The staff (especially Ajuu) came across as being genuinely keen to make sure you enjoy your stay. We ate in their restaurant 2 nights out of 3 and tried another...

We enjoyed a delightful 3 days here. Good location. Beautiful building, with ground floor rooms facing the lovely pool. Rooms are very comfortable and breakfast was good. There is a small cafe near the pool with a limited menu. Staff very helpful. We did not eat dinner at the hotel as prices were high. Laundry prices are too expensive -...

Very good selection of Veg and non foods on the menu. I combined a few Veg appetizers to make a lighter dinner. Service, ambiance and service where excellent. Not a cheap meal by local standards but very worthwhile. I recommend the roof top at Plasis De Mehe as a certain stop on your trip. Next time I hope to stay...

Palais du Mahe does justice to the beautiful environs of the French quarter in which it is located. A new construction which truly feels like a heritage structure. The staff is endearing and very helpful. They, very sweetly, organised a surprise cake for my birthday. The breakfast spread, however, could be of better quality. It didn't match up to the...

This is a grossly overpriced place to stay. The amenities in the room they provide are from an unknown brand, the breakfast menu is very limited and quite pathetic, the rooms are sort of depressing. There is a school next door so you will keep hearing singing and children playing -- I personally did not mind it but some may....

We had dinner here on feb11. The food was great ! Both the vegetarian fare and the non vegetarians were happy -the menu range was good. service was prompt and efficient. pricing was not cheap but not unreasonable. Good place to head to for a meal in Pondicherry- but make sure you book a table before you go.

One dinner night was exceptionally well orchestrated by the staff , very efficient, ran like clockwork without compromise on quality of service and excellent food with a packed restaurant. I must say this was the most efficient dining room I have ever visited.

We had only one night in this lovely hotel, would have liked to have stayed longer! We had a beautiful big room with equally big bathroom attached. The pool was lovely to cool off in after a hot days sightseeing. Breakfast was very good, staff attentive and friendly.
