i was looking forward to visiting pondicherry since it is a place which is famous for it's french influence. i did not much like it. it was very similar to most asian cities and apart from the attractive colonial area and a picturesque seafront it was a bit dull. we were not here very long and i suspect it may be a place that you need to spend time …
Back in a CGH Earth hotel was a relief, one just feels cradled in safe hands with them. A quick encounter with an old acquaintance from Spice Village Hotel and a gossip about the movements of staff within the group.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMaison Perumal Pondicherry
as with all CGH Earth sites this one excells in homely comforts and personal touches. Well appointed rooms are smaller than in most of the CGH Earth hotels but with lofty ceilings and simple furniture, tastefully chosen, the effect is spacious. Menus are a bit restricted but anything can be obtained just by asking. That goes for food, help, shopping, and local knowledge.
