5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Beautifully restored and furnished this hotel, part of the CGH group, provides a unique place to explore Pondicherry from the traditional Tamil quarter of the city. The French quarter and the Promenade are about a 15 minute stroll from the hotel. Located on a street that is just a short walk from the Perumal Temple, the building was originally a home to a Chettiar family of successful businessmen. The ground level has lovely common areas with courtyards that are filled with lush tropical foliage. The first and second floors have individual guest rooms that offer privacy, great furniture and modern conveniences such as wifi, cable TV and modern bathroom fittings. Service is outstanding from the moment you arrive to the time you leave and the staff are attentive to your needs. The hotel has a generous breakfast with fresh fruit, juices, cereal, eggs cooked to your taste with sausage and bacon, and an additional indian cooked breakfast. You get all that as part of one breakfast! Who needs lunch after such a repast, but if you do, there is a good choice of entrees to choose from. I was impressed by this heritage hotel and would gladly try one of the many others in the CGH chain across South India. Strongly recommended after a recent visit to Pondicherry on December 3rd 2018.

(Almost) Perfect Weekend Getaway

My wife and I chose to stay here for a weekend in July 2017 and completely enjoyed our time there.The hotel is a large, beautifully restored, 130-year old home. Perfect blend of classic Tamil Nadu architecture and completely modern facilities. The hotel is a visual treat and the staff provided wonderful service. They allowed us to check-in early and check-out late, which was very helpful. Centrally located, so once we drove in, we could just walk everywhere and didn't need the car at all. The rooms are tastefully appointed, but if you want to relax in the room, the TV has NO English entertainment channels, so carry your own entertainment or a book. The beautiful restaurant also had only traditional Tamil Nadu cuisine, so for me that was a bit of a let-down. Also, there is only limited street parking. Notwithstanding the TV channels selection (considering the tariff of the room) and limited food options, the hotel is fantastic and I highly recommend it. A 4.5-Star rating would be my rating.

Excellent place for a peaceful stay

We had booked this hotel 2 months in advance via Expedia. After booking, we called the hotel and spoke to the Manager (Mr. Sam) to reconfirm our booking and specifically requested for Room No. 102. He assured us that he would block the room for us. After 2 months when the day came for us to head to Pondicherry, we were running late so we had called to inform that we might be an hour later than the check-in time (3 PM). Mr. Sam once again assured us that there will be no problem and that our room (#102) was ready! This warm and accommodating nature of Mr. Sam made us excited to look forward to the hotel stay. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a garland of jasmine flowers and cold towel by Mr. Jason (Front desk manager). He promptly had our luggage taken to the rooms, while we checked-in and got a map of the places to visit explained in detail. The following days of our stay was filled yummy complimentary breakfast, guidance by Mr. Jason, Mr. Bijoy and Mr. Mani, whenever we needed assistance. A walk within the hotel will give you a feeling of walking through an old beautiful home filled with love and joy. We were totally warmed by their hospitality and helping nature. The night before we left Pondicherry, we had dinner at the hotel and were floored with their Idiyappam, fish curry & prawns that we gave the entire staff a box of chocolates to express our gratitude :). Thank you Mason Perumal for a wonderful & peaceful stay! We will come back soon :)

Pros: Location in the quiet Tamil quarters Ambiance of the hotel & rooms Hospitality, warmth & friendliness of the hotel staff Totally yummy food :)

Cons: A bath tub would be fantastic addition :)

Location: Sentuers Fleurs En Flacon (to buy perfumes); Zuka Cafe (to buy chocolates & have coffee); Cafe Xtasi (for eating best wood-fired pizzas & yummy pastas

A nice small hotel with fantastic staff

Maison Perumal is a quaint hotel from a boutique (ish) chain. I stayed for three nights and enjoyed my stay, with the staff being wonderful, charming and very helpful. The breakfast is nice, fresh and plentiful with actual espresso being provided - not the norm in India (even at 5 star hotels) . Dinner specialities change nightly and are tasty but the servings are very much on the small side. The hotel general areas are well appointed and maintained. My only 'cons' being the atrocious wifi (when it actually worked - while it is a supplier issue, still not good enough for a guest who had to work) and the very small bathrooms - I tried two rooms, with the first one just above tiny sized.
