Excellent staff, beautiful room ”

Staff, room, decor

We have been staying at the Esparan Heritage for five days now and are delighted with all it has to offer. We were only supposed to be staying two nights but can't seem to leave as we're so happy here. The staff have catered to our every need, they're always happy to help with a smile. Our room is beautiful and perfect - extremely comfortable four-post bed, elegant furniture, wood beamed ceiling, safety deposit box, TV and a very modern bathroom - and in my opinion great value for money. The staff have been ever helpful in both helping us with information on the local area and catering for our stay - we get asked what we would like for breakfast the following morning, if we need anything bringing to the room, if we would like the room cleaning, a night guard and morning wake up calls if required (with tea and toast!) The manager says he wants to create a place where anyone that stays here can get whatever they need so he is very open to suggestions and happy to oblige This is a place I would definitely recommend staying if you visit Pondicherry.

Fantastic Heritage Hotel in a very interesting part of town.”

We stayed here in a beautiful room, it was our favourite room in all of our India holiday. Our room was so cool and after site seeing in the heat coming back to relax was really lovely. The location is fantastic in the heritage area but still with a very vibrant local vibe. We had a balcony to look out over the street scene below. Our breakfasts in a great upstairs breakfast room were really delicious. Also the staff here were helpful and made us feel really welcomed from the moment we arrived. We were sorry to leave here and will be back. Well done to all David

friendly staff. beautiful rooms.

Upon arrival there was some confusion on the kind of room choosen and maximum occupancy. We had to pay additional to get bigger rooms but they gave similar discount as agoda on the incremental price. Once that was sorted, rest of the stay was fantastic. Loved the hotel, the architecural design, cleanliness. Breakfast choices were limited but food was good. Staff were very friendly. Location pretty good with things to see all nearby.

The hotel is great. Staff is fabulous. The one thing which would make the hotel perfect is if it was located in the historic "White Town" area, but you can get back and forth easily with auto rickshaws. Staff were friendly and went out of their way to help us. Rooms are clean and charming.
