Tamil Quarter Mansion, Pondicherry

The Tamil Quarter of Puducherry houses this traditional home, featuring fantastic seafood specials.

INTRODUCTION

I have never seen any hotel staff who is so happy to see you. This is true across the board from Dinu, the General Manager to the restaurant server. Since it is a small Pondicherry heritage hotel with only ten rooms, every staff member performs multiple tasks and they do it competently. This Pondicherry heritage hotel is situated in the Tamil Quarter of Puducherry and has a facade characteristic of Franco Tamil architecture. It was originally a registrar office in the erstwhile French colony. Dinu says that even now older couples who got married here come to take a look at the building. It was almost falling down when the management decided to restore and run it as a boutique Pondicherry heritage hotel. It took them almost two years of rebuilding with help from INTACH, a heritage conservation society to create the gracious house.

ROOMS

The simple yet elegant entrance begins from a raised covered porch just off the street, a traditional Tamil feature. The rest of the house is created around two consecutive courtyards with the reception, restaurant, tiny bar and kitchen on the ground floor. The rooms are mainly on the first and second floor around the courtyards. The passages have coloured glass panels on the walls, another typical feature of the area. Though the architects have managed to create a few communal areas, there is no real garden or lounge area in this Pondicherry heritage hotel. The reception area has a small seating area that can function as a lounge at a pinch and one of the courtyards has a few tables and chairs. To offset a stark look, there is a profusion of greenery in large pots in the courtyards, which is pleasing to the eye. The rooms are of different sizes but well furnished with antique style furniture. The bathrooms in this Pondicherry heritage hotel are on the smaller side with modern amenities.

SERVICE

Given the small size of this Pondicherry heritage hotel, the restaurant has a limited menu for lunch and a set menu for dinner. The fare is a mix of Indian and European cuisine. The focus is on seafood given Pondicherry’s coastal setting. The chef prides himself on selecting the best fresh produce each day and the results show up in the delicious dishes that change every day. Breakfast is standard with both continental and South Indian options.

    Booked through seek&hide since I didn\'t have much time to plan a quick anniv getaway. Glad I took the suggestion of Maison Perumal. was a great weekend holiday. We are seafood fans and the food was excellent. Freshly caught crab was mouth watering. Nice rooms and very friendly n helpful staff. Thanks Reena for all the advice. I also suggest to read their blog on Pondicherry since it gives you all the info about shopping, eating etc. We arranged a car through seek&hide from Chennai and back. Excellent driver who spoke English. Next trip I hope will be Kochi because of another blog post I read :)

    The writeup is so true. Service is great. REally appreciate the way they took care of the older people and the kids with patience. We requested the chef to reduced spice for my kid\’s food. Not a problem. They did it with a smile. Rate may look a bit high but worth it if you want a good holiday in a heritage hotel. Have already told my friends and family to stay here next time they come to Pondi.
