First let's start off about the place. Located at Vysial street, from the front it's a blink and you miss it appearance of Le Maison Tamoule. However, the small front
belies the massive proportions inside. What i most loved were the high walls and the typical architecture that reminded me of my family home from the 80's.
The rooms are filled with wood of the best kind and you have doors with blinds, walk in closets and what can only be called one massive tub you can spend hours soaking in. That's not to say that it's lacking anything modern because on the wall along with those ancient looking buttons that look like government issue is hidden a lan cable outlet (pro tip: bring your own cable, they might not have one on hand) and a wonderfully chilling air conditioner.
The best thing about La Maison Tamoule are it's people. The staff certainly know the meaning of hospitality and there is never a dour face for even a moment. Everyone almost anticipates your needs and at times i've been served before i could even ask. And everyone makes sure that you're well taken care of.
Their in house restaurant is also something you should definitely try. Being a vegetarian i only tried that part but i've been pleasantly surprised to discover some very subtle and new tastes that i've never before experienced. Even the dal that's staple fare back home and i've had all over tasted very different (nicely so).
The place is also advantageously located. Turn the corner at the end of the street and you're in the local market. Walk straight ahead and two crossings later you're in the french quarters. A little further ahead and you'll hit the beach.All in all, everything is just nearby.
I had an absolutely delightful time and if i can, i will always return back to the place that has become my home, my Maison Tamoule.

Pleasant,quaint street and peaceful!i had gone to Pondicherry in the Month of May. I would strongly recommend this place. Very centrally located. Part of Tamil colony,the staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. With a good sense of humour as well.Mr Ram - the front office at the hotel is truly a gentleman with a keen eye for the highest standards of customer satisfaction. The room was very colorful tiles, comfortable, and clean. And the food was great, complimentary breakfast also good different kinds of breads and dosa with nice coconut chutney. we enjoyed our stay.thanks to all staff

The hotel is lovely, with beautiful chettinad architecture - a real tamil house. The staff are friendly and the food is alright. The rooms are perhaps a little too narrow but that's alright, since the beautiful oxide floors take your breath away.

Honestly, ask yourselves ... does a place which is dated but restored make an authentic claim to being an heritage accommodation? As the name suggests, it is more of a confused French - Tamil combination of whitewashed walls and stone pillars. It is centrally located, though in one of Pondy's many stinking streets that begin and end with open drains. I guess with plummeting standards being happily accepted now a days by compulsive tourists, it is passable enough if the property is well maintained and basic service is in place. Breakfast is the usual bread, eggs & hard Idli affair. It is a prime example of how the Neemrana properties business unit is compelled to bring in a forced differentiation in its properties.
