About Esparan Heritage Heritage Town

Esparan Heritage Heritage Town is set in a French colonial-style building in Puducherry's evocative Heritage Town district. As well as being just 15 minutes' walk from Pondicherry Beach, this relaxed budget hotel boasts on-site dining and plenty of heritage charm.

Unfussy, air-conditioned guest rooms with timber eaves feature tile floors and old-school furnishings. Flat-screen televisions, mini fridges, and tea/coffee-making facilities come as standard. All quarters have seating areas; some offer four-poster beds.

Site-wide Wi-Fi and private parking are both on hand for guests to use without charge.

A range of local and international food options are offered in an intimate, subdued restaurant, plus room service is on hand for visitors who prefer to dine in their quarters. A complimentary breakfast is provided with some room rates.

Esparan Heritage Heritage Town is a mile from both the fascinating Pondicherry Museum and the landmark Old Lighthouse which overlooks the Bay of Bengal. The famed Mission Street market area is a ten-minute walk away.

Positive Reviews

Great heritage building

Reviewers are full of praise for the delightful nineteenth century charm on show throughout this French-inspired colonial building. The evocative open courtyard near the entrance is the hotel's main highlight, although the timber eaves and four-poster beds in the accommodations tend to garner their fair share of admirers too.

Keen staff members provide great service

The attitude and efforts of this hotel employees is noted positively in reviews. Travellers say the management and personnel are proactive and considerate, and provide swift and satisfactory resolutions to issues raised by guests. Staff members and managers are often mentioned by name in reviews.

Negative Reviews

Temperamental hot water supply

Reviewers report experiencing delays with the hot water supply in their bathrooms. Whilst these delays aren't deemed substantial, they are identified as being frequent and/or long enough to be inconvenient.

Confusian regarding on-site restaurant

Travellers are disappointed to discover that, contrary to the advertising blurb on the hotel's website, there's no restaurant serving lunch and dinner menus on-site. Evidently, breakfast is the only meal served up here.

Some issues with parking

While guests generally appreciate the availability of a free on-site car park, visitors say parking here can be a little frustrating at times. This is because the car park itself is so modest in size it forces drivers to park their vehicles in ways that block other cars in.
