My husband and I stayed here at the start of February and had the most amazing weekend away. The hotel is stunning and all of the people that work at the hotel are super kind and helpful. The hotel is very clean and makes you feel that you are in France. The food at the restraint was delicious. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

Apparently 4 is still very good according to Trip Advisor which is what this hotel is. I would definitely stay here again, decor and ambience are wonderful, perfectly complementing the heritage of the building. The bedroom ( Cananore)was clean and comfortable with some great pieces of heritage furniture, this meant the double bed was a bit on the small side but not a problem, and was very high off the floor so anyone with poor mobility may need to ask for a step or check before hand. I could not say if this is the same for other rooms. Well equipped bathroom with shower. No television but excellent WI-FI. An open courtyard is lovely but slightly spoiled by a couple of families of crows deciding this was the ideal place so make their nests. As a bird lover I didn't mind this but you need to choose where to sit with caution! We enjoyed a first class dinner here one evening, 3 types of prawns, all of which were delicious. The hotel does not have alcoholic drinks on the menu but staff are. Ore than happy to pop out and get it for you if required. We thoroughly enjoyed the local Kingfisher lager and Indian wine, which was very drinkable.

Was looking for a heritage place to make our anniversary/birthday trip to Pondi special and chanced upon this property. The property was recently leased by the Dune group from the Neemarana folks and renovated over the last couple of months. Having stayed at Neemarana properties before, decided to take on chance on staying here inspite of some of the poor reviews left behind by others on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! From the time we entered into the property to the time we left two days later we were doted upon. The staff made us feel truly at home bringing us fresh juices and filter coffee while we sat soaking in the wonderful courtyard inside the hotel. The property was kept in a spotless condition and the rooms were neat and clean with crisp and clean sheets. We stayed in the Chandernagore suite which has two massive poster beads and is outfitted with some beautiful furniture. The rooms have high ceilings in their original form and are modern in that they are all air conditioned and have modern bathrooms. The renovation is done so that all of these modern amenities blend into the original structure and transports one to the past while enjoying the modern amenities. We only enjoyed their delicious buffet breakfast which in true Tamil Nadu fashion was usually Pongal, Upma, Idlies or Dosa. Like at home the cook would ask what we would like to have the next day and seek suggestions. There was also eggs to order, pastries, bread etc which we did not try. We usually ate lunch and dinner at one of the several other wonderful restaurants that are scattered around White Town. We would definitely stay at the de 'LOrient again.

I've stayed at this property twice - once in April 2017 when it was run by the Neemrana group and recently in December 2017 over the Christmas long weekend when it has been taken over by the Dune group. The first stay was one of the most memorable stays I've had and barring a few issues with the WiFi was exceptional by all means. The experience led the same group of my friends and I to revisit this property in December. While the property still shows up as a Neemrana property in TripAdvisor and other travel sites, we reached to realise that the management had changed over to Dune. We didn't give it much thought though, given we didn't expect a management change to drastically affect the services and amenities but boy were we in for the shock of our lives. Here's everything that went wrong: 1. There is no WiFi in the property 2. The water in the bathrooms stinks and is also frothy 3. The water heating is defective 4. The AC keeps switching off intermittently and they struggle to find the root cause of the problem. This happened not just to us but 3 other resident guests too. 5. We had to repeatedly ask them to clean the rooms and change the linen and towels. 6. The breakfast spread was limited to idlys (boiled rice puffs) and cut fruits. We have had to have breakfast at other restaurants every single morning. 7. The restaurant is non functional so every night we've had to look for dinner at other hotels, the respectable ones among which were all reserved for their resident guests, given the Christmas weekend rush. The manager, Mr Suresh, acknowledged all our issues but merely mentioned that this was owing to them reopening under new management. When asked to facilitate a call with the management,he pulled a cheap stunt and dialled his subordinate who within a minute into the call, accepted that he actually reports into Mr Suresh. The only saving grace at the property were its staff Sakthi and Stalin who we remember being there from the Neemrana days and seemed unfortunate enough to have not found greener pastures yet. It's a crying shame to see such a lovely property get reduced to this.

Filled with wonderful old furniture and many wall pictures of olden times. All creates a feeling of seclusion. Quite a treasure but not without the odd glitch. Breakfast was a small buffet but we were able to request a dosa or omelette. Dinner was fair but limited main course options for vegetarians. Also service could be slow. Bathroom plumbing was at times problematic. The onsite boutique was closed on account of (we were told) imminent hotel closure for renovations. Apparently there is a roof terrace but that was being used for storage. Lovely courtyard area. Shakthi at reception was very helpful. Laundry service available and the ironing and presentation of the returned items in a cute wicker basket was impressive. The hotel has a helpful agreement with an ayurvedic centre and reception can arrange a tuk-tuk to and from. Good air conditioning and ceiling fan in bedroom. The hotel is just one block from the promenade and near several small shops.
