The heritage hotel is very good and in center position. The foods are good. Staff are very well mannered and helpful. They also provided us tea and cold drink free of cost at the time of check out. Rooms are also good with french style.

This was my first visit to Pondicherry and while we were rudely shocked after seeing the hotel we booked through Makemytrip.com. We had no option but to look out for
some other place to stay .. and we landed here at Neemrana's -La maision Tamoule.
This is truly a marvel located in the Tamil quarters of the French town. It is located on Vysial Street, which won the UNESCO awarded for the best-restored heritage street. It is called La Maison Tamoule or The Tamil House, and is run as a Neemrana Hotel.
One of the houses at Vysial Street, the exterior façade of which was restored under the Asia Urbs programme in the year 2004 was House no. 36. This 150 year old Tamil mansion, originally owned by the Sially family of Pondicherry, was bought by Mr. Venkatakrishnan in the year 1978. Thereafter, the property was leased out to a bank before it was inherited by JayaPrakash who chose to convert it into a hotel in the year 2008. The interiors were also re-done in sync with the streetscape at Rue Clave Subbraya Chetty by the owners.
Neemrana’s La Maison Tamoule, justifying its name, is a Tamil House with the influence of French and Baroque architecture. With attangudi tiles on the floor, and frames of stained glass between arches, this building lends to the overall ambiance of Pondicherry.
It has ten rooms nicely done up with exquisite antique furniture. Though limited , the kitchen serves nice dishes . What would touch you every moment is the nice warm hospitality .. every possible minute details are being taken care of without even asking for it . We spend 4 nights here , and I must say this is worth visiting .

Well located and good Decor's. Friendly staff make your day. The place is well within reach of the promenade, auto ashram, shopping streets and eateries. This is easy to reach
and the rooms give a joy of living in ancient homes. Well maintained and decent for families.
Food options for breakfast seem limited but is good to taste :-)

We visited this place in July as a group of 4... Nice place, but the location wasn't great.. parking was a problem, on the road.. But the room was very nice.. it was big and clean.. Breakfast options could have been better though, nothing great..

(1) Great property, untapped potential but shabby. Toilets were uncomfortable as the fixtures and fittings are of a poor quality. Our toilet did not have a toilet paper holder, the
tub was blue plaster and just looked/felt cheap. We were in a room on the 1st floor with a very peculiar layout - the bed was on the mezzanine floor, and could only be reached via a very tight spiral stair.....extremely uncomfortable to surmount for the unathletic. A couple of chairs in the 1st floor lounge had torn upholstery.....totally unacceptable in a Neemrana brand.
(2) They have tied up with a Kerala Massage place called 'Kerala Ayurveda' and recommend them for massages. The assumption was that the quality and service levels would be good but I was disappointed. The massage was good but their bathroom to bathe in, post massage was, to say the least, horrible.
(3) The food was for most part was good. The only criticism was that dishes that were supposed to have coconut in them, unfortunately, had none.
(4) No WiFi in rooms.....only in the lobby, which is very hot with really uncomfortable seats.
(5) On the other hand the service was commendable.
