Overall it was a normal hotel

Posted 20 Feb, 2017

I went to Pondicherry in the month of November 2016 and made my stay in the Palaise de Mahe. It was my holiday trip with family. My travel destination was average. I would rate the location as good because it is at main center. The appearance of the hotel was very good as it is very hygienic. I would rate the front desk staff as good because of their responsive ontime. I booked this room through online. I would rate the services in the hotel were average. The hotel room was very good because of nice view and facilities. The hotel food was very good because price is very comfortable with more varieties.

Overall, had a fantabulous experience

Posted 11 Aug, 2015

There is no reason why this property should not be given an excellent rating. We stayed there for 3 days in last week of June and the experience was fantastic. The quaint property of CGH earth property in pondy located a stones throw away from the beach in the french quarters is the only property which is boutique, heritage and has a swimming pool in pondy. About 15-18 rooms, fantastic restaurant on the top floor and a great cafe on the ground floor near the swimming pool makes the food experience top knotch. We were welcomed by Mr.Fevin, the front office manager who took good care of us and all other guests. From explaining the town, its geography and heritage value to food options, arranging pick up and drop and being single source of information for anything local, he really made the stay stand out from previous experiences. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help you if you need something. The rooms are spacious with high ceiling, well stocked bar, nature friendly upholstery and comfortable bed. A repeat stay - yes if we visit Pondy, but this is going to help us select other CGH earth properties at different locations Thank you! Palais de Mahe

Well-maintained hotel with good rooms

Posted 11 Apr, 2015

We went to pondicherry with a bunch of friends just for a bachelors party and we just had a lot of fun over there, fortunately we have got a discount in this hotel and the rooms were so good looking and its a multiplex hotel room over there which was maintained very neat. Sure we would stay there again if we go again to Pondi.

Wonderful place, everything was great!

Posted 3 Apr, 2015

My husband and myself had gone for a short getaway in Sept 2014. The hotel is better than what the pictures show. Great place to relax and unwind. It's a small hotel, with great amenities and the rooms are just too good. Great value for money. On reaching we were given a warm welcome by the manager and explained about all the places and things to do in Pondicherry. Since it was our first visit to Pondicherry, the information provided was very helpful and helped us plan our days well. The manager was very helpful in organising transport and more than willing to help on anything needed. The food at the restaurant was good, the breakfast had enough options. There are quite a few other places to eat around but we did not try most of them. Good food is easily available. You can even get French cuisine. The climate in Sept is not too good here. It was very hot, just not possible to get out in the day. Evenings were ok and a good time to get out and walk around the sea beach. But the pool really helped. Our room had a private balcony, but we could not use it well as it was too hot to sit around without the ac. Its a good idea to go here when the climate is better, cooler. We had to cut short our trip by a few hours and get to the airport in time as there was some trouble in Chennai and there was a fear of traffic being stopped. The manager was very concerned that we get to the airport safely and ensured we had a vehicle in time to get us there. We did have a long wait at Chennai airport, but the trip was a good getaway.
