Stay at a traditional style place with all the amenities within a walkable distance.. Loved the ambiance. Courteous crew also make the stay wonderful.
You can get the wake up call if required. Walkable distance to the famous eateries and to the rocky beach.

I spent 3 days at Anantha Heritage hotel. My room was overlooking the street, so there was traffic noise and sounds of people talking at the reception that was outside my room, which was disturbing. Then after shifting to a corner room, my stay was quite pleasant. The staff were helpful and well mannered, especially Ms Vishalakshi and Mr Kalai and the others. Breakfast provided was of good quantity and quite tasty. Overall ambience was pleasant.
However, hot water in the bathroom was not available, the location was congested and noisy, and the staff could definitely improve the tea !!
If you're looking for old world charm with a mix of modern amenities, this place fits the bill.

It is a property that apparently has 300 years of heritage. Red oxide flooring, simple electrical fixtures and solid wood furniture - it definitely reminds you of an era gone by. The room we took was spacious, and even the extra bed that we had requested for my son was almost a queen bed, unlike the typical foldable single beds provided in other hotels. All basic amenities were available like TV, kettle, AC and hot water throughout the day. It is located in a small lane that is typical of central Puducherry but the good thing is that it is one of the quieter lanes and you can find a decent car parking spot on the street near the hotel at all times. The promenade and shopping areas are within a 1-2km range, so they are walkable.

The age of the property does show up here and there so you might have to tussle a bit with a bathroom door latch or a slightly shaky wardrobe, but i would consider these as one of the charms of the place. What one needs to realize is that they have tried to retain as much of the old world stuff as possible and have not done extensive renovations/modernizations, so, if you are expecting the overall ambience to be heritage but everything else to be modern and chic, then this is not the place for you.

The property is beautifully maintained and a big shout out for the warm and excellent hospitality and service. Right from the GM, Mr.Nagaraj, who was super responsive for arranging the booking at best rates, to the various managers in the property who worked in shifts (i am forgetting the name of the lady, Selvi, i think, Kalai, and others) were simply one of the best hosts i have experienced. They provided personal attention and were always ready to help.

The restaurants are not functional in this property due to Covid, however, they provide sumptuous South Indian and Continental breakfast options in the morning. They also allow you to order in food using Zomato or Swiggy. They also arranged for a Scooter on hire, which is a good option to explore the sights of the city. They have a nice sit-out outside each room where you can enjoy a peaceful meal to the sounds of chirping birds.

Overall, i would highly recommend this place for its old world charm, service, hospitality and proximity to the Promenade and dining places in the city

Room tip: Ask for rooms on the first floor. They have a better view

We are currently staying at Anantha heritage. I feel it's bit over rated.
Property is decent. But service needs a lot of improvement.

My issues were.
1)Parking.

2)Absolutely no security. Anyone can walk-in in the middle of the night as there's no security guard. (I had to leave late night to get emergency medicines and I had to leave main the door open and till I got back there's no one to even latch it from inside) expect zero help from house keeping. In fact no one was around at night even if you call for help.

3) package includes breakfast but they blame it on covid and say they have to get breakfast from their sister concern( the attender here recommended me to have breakfast at Adyar anand Bhavan instead)

4) it's not worth the cost they are charging.

5) location is average. It's Amidst a congested locality.

We booked two Deluxe rooms. However the staff called us the previous night to tell us that they were short of a room and were transferring us to their sister property in white town. This turned out pretty great as the property was brilliant. They agreed to not take any extra cost since the room rent turned out the same. The staff were always available on their whatsapp number for any queries.
