This is not in the top flight of tourist hotels in this interesting town, but well worth a stay in the cooler seasons. You are near the centre of the unfortunately named White Town, just a few streets from the esplanade. There is a cool courtyard which houses the bar and restaurant. We had a large airy room on the first floor. The management was young and friendly. The food was seriously good, making it worth a visit even if you're not staying. The bar and waiting staff could do with a bit more training, but overall we enjoyed an excellent few days.

The only restaurant in my 'to visit places' in Pondicherry even before arrival. Disappointed though. Slow service despite the number of staff seen around. Limited food options. With the large number of people waiting at the door to get a table, you expect quick service. However every item takes time to come, even the bill.
Full marks to the food taste though. Price also reasonable for the service.

We keep going to Villa Shanti when we have an occasion to celebrate: the food is always excellent. The location is beautiful in the courtyard of a old building, but it can get crowded sometime, so come early.

We had dinner at this hotel. Ambience was excellent. Most of the seats occupied by foreigners. The price charged was well worth. However, service was bit slow. The seekh kabab we ordered Alongwith fish snacks were really good.

One of the great examples of good property but extremly hostile policies. There is NO focus on customer satisfaction and Management is adament on enforcing policies like a baording school. Quite expensive as compared to what u get.

Very inflexible for making changes to booking or even room configuration.

No buffet breakfast - BEWARE : If you want to have a toast and ask for an option for Idli and Dosa. Then Be extremly careful - You CANNOT have more than 1. You have to be great in Maths after a hangover night to select and debate the restaurant guys. Give me a break!! I just want 1 toast and want to taste Idli and little bit of Paratha. But they said NO!! Wow great customer service...Just say No to customer.....whatever he asks!!!
