Governor’s Heritage Villa, Pondicherry

Creole and Continental cuisine delight visitors at this 250 year villa in the French Quarter of Puducherry

INTRODUCTION

If Governor’s Heritage Villa in Pondicherry were a person, the first thing you would say on meeting him/her is “ you just don’t look your age”. It’s hard to believe that a 250 year or older villa can still look this good. Its thick walls stand testament to its history starting life as part of the erstwhile French Governor’s complex, then as a private home and now as a small hotel. A group of four Pondicherry businessmen bought this villa in the heart of the French Quarter for sentimental reasons and decided to run it as a boutique hotel so that it can continue to be maintained in its original condition.

ROOM

This heritage villa in Pondicherry was built in the traditional Pondicherry style of a central walled courtyard with the house built around it. The first impression on entrance is that of high doorways painted in a delicious blue-green colour in a beautiful contrast to the yellow shaded walls. With only ten rooms, this heritage villa in Pondicherry has a peaceful vibe despite being in the centre of the tourist area. The thick walls help in keeping out noise. The rooms are of varying sizes and shapes. Spacious with high ceilings and four-poster beds, the two suite rooms are the best choice. The deluxe rooms are regular while the two standard rooms are best for single occupancy or a cosy twosome. The bathrooms in this heritage villa in Pondicherry have modern amenities. A sunny restaurant that also serves as the breakfast room is on a mezzanine level from the courtyard. Adjacent to the restaurant, there is a tiny bar with just a few tables. Although not consistent with the heritage character, a favourite place for guests is the wooden deck on stilts in the courtyard.

SERVICE

Breakfast is continental with choice of eggs, toast, juice and coffee/tea. The restaurant in this heritage villa in Pondicherry offers a choice of Indian, French and Pondicherry Creole cuisine. The staff at this heritage villa in Pondicherry is local and helpful. Ravi, the manager is usually around till evening and will help with any requests.

    I was lucky to get booking in Pondicherry on one of the busiest weekends in January. The suite was comfortable and useful as my daughter could sleep on the extra bed. Very old heritage property. Restaurant was average but it central location in French Town. Very convenient to see the sights, for restaurants and the promenade. South Indian food is great at Hotel Surguru opp Duparc.
