My Dream of Indian Hospitality
Posted Feb 11, 2017
This was the perfect place for my stay in India. It was quiet, near to everything and the staff felt like true friends. I was traveling alone and they looked after not only my needs but me personally. They helped with excursion reservations, directions and offered cultural explanations to my many questions. I felt they truly cared about me and I truly cared about them. I can't say enough about the warmth of their hospitality and the thoroughness of their service.
The hotel is small which suited my need for quiet and simplicity. The rooms open to an airy covered courtyard circled by palms and greenery. You can sit on the verandas or in the restaurant and drink your morning tea with papers. The included breakfast is diverse and generous. The restaurant served really good Indian food and is open to the public. The surrounding neighborhood is the old section of Pondicherry built by the French. The streets are tree-lined and safe and fairly empty of traffic. My room was large and decorated simply with period pieces. Everything was clean and well-kept, inside and outside. I will definitely stay here on on my next trip Pondicherry, a city top on my list of travel loves.
