Neemrana's - La Maison Tamoule
Ranked #40 of 85 Hotels in Pondicherry
Reviewed 20 March 2016

We have visited Neemrana's La Maison Tamoule many times in the last four years and have taken people there also and we have all enjoyed food. There is usually only one other table occupied when we go and we don't know why as the food is so good. They have tandoor as well as an extensive menu and the Tamil house is just beautiful. There is a wonderful art gallery opposite as well

Located on a heritage street. A heritage hotel. Beautiful. Every tile, every stair crafted with detail. Each room different, quaint names, quaint decor yet comfortable. Wooden stairs, unique architecture - what is not to like about it? Loved this place every moment we were here...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your warm words about Neemrana’s La Maison Tamoule, in the charming heritage town of Pondicherry!

We are pleased that you got a chance to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Tamil quarters and hope that you got time to explore the Aurobindo Ashram, the beach and the promenade during your visit.

In our effort to restore and revitaise a ruin to its original charm and glory, your appreciation of the effort by the restoration team reinforces the Neemrana philosophy and validates what we strive so hard to achieve.

We hope that as you continue to explore more of India with Neemrana, now spread across India with 27 properties, you will continue to write to us with your experiences.

Warm regards,

Team Neemrana

Tastefully restored heritage hotel with teak wood pillars, athangudi tiles and stained glass windows. We recently got married here at their beautiful courtyard in the middle of the house. This is an amazing place for small private weddings. The place can easily hold upto 150 people. The staff was very friendly and professional. We came from Chennai with not many contacts in Pondicherry. The staff made the whole experience very seamless and smooth for us. Thank you La Maison Tamoule for making our wedding special! :)

When its a Neemrana property, you expect it to be good but this one was a big disappointment.The food was not good and the ambiance was shoddy. The place needs high renovation.The service was the only saving grace.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time out to share your experience with us!

Although we are pleased that you enjoyed the service, it is extremely disappointing to learn that we could not do enough to meet the standards we set for ourselves in order to efficiently meet your expectations.

This should never have been the case and we assure you that the issues observed by you will be addressed in due course.

We hope that you will not hold this against us and give us a chance to overlay your experience!

Warm regards,

A great property in an old home. well located. comfortable rooms and friendly staff BUT a lack of attention to detail. Dusty furnture, untrained staff, Retaurant not cleaned crumbs on the table and on the floor. The bathrooms are also quite dirty if one looks closely. I think management needs to be improved .

Room Tip: we had room PEARL. Nice room with a balcony.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for writing to us about your experience!

Although we are pleased to learn that you appreciate the restoration effort and the hospitality by the members of the staff, it is deeply disappointing to learn of your observations and we are writing to apologise for the shortfalls.

We assure you that the issues have since been addressed and those concerned pulled up for the same to ensure that such incidents are not repeated in future.

We hope that you will give us another chance to overlay this experience in the near future.

On a distinctive Tamil street of Pondicherry with red-tiled verandahs and seating platforms, lies La Maison Tamoule. This street was restored under the Asia Urbs Programme. Polished red-tile Attangadi floors surround a pillared courtyard over two floors. The verandahs lead to the rooms with Burmese teak doors and furniture. Light filters through a translucent roof above and the windows in the rooms tint the sunlight with their stained glass panes. This Baroque, Franco-Tamil architecture represents the same fusion as the colonial furniture and Creole food of Pondicherry. ... more   less
