I have stayed a couple of times at Park Guest House some years ago and I think it has a great value and is a place where you have a chance to recover and get a little bit out of the turmoil of indian trafic. In particular if you are a bookreader and certainly if you read some of the... More

The reviews and location is good so we went here with 9 members. The owner (old lady) was immediately very rude and unwelcoming to us. The rooms are simple but good and the view of the balcony is great. Sadly the lady was so rude to us when we left, that my friend left crying. If you want the cheap... More

Park guesthouse has an excellent location and one of the best (sea)views in town for a good price (bearing in mind that Pondichery is more expensive than elsewhere in India).You really can't beat these two things.The rooms are spacious and clean if not a bit run down but the sound of the waves made it very attractive to me.It has...

If you want to experience peace & serenity this is the place for you. Don't book it if you are looking for amenities, as it hardly offers any. But location is right on the promenade. Very quiet & peaceful. Extremely budget friendly. The only drawback is, being associated with Aurbindo Ashram, they don't entertain advance booking or room service.

The guesthouse is undoubtedly at the best location, you can listen to the sound of the waves, and is reasonable too, but the staff is rude. I stayed here for a night and then moved to Coramandel Heritage for the unfriendly treatment I received.

Arriving in the middle of the night we knocked on the gate and were told we had to wait untill 7am which seemed very unaccomodating seeing as someone was up. They also refused to allow us to wait in their waiting room. So having then sat outside on the road for hours, we knocked again at 7am to be rudely... More

The beach views and garden are lovely. But the guy in reception was really rude and almost hostile when we checked in and the lady in the restaurant was cold and unfriendly. Real shame, as the room and location were good. We were planning to stay 3 nights but checked out early! As an ashram promoting spirituality, inner being and... More

As it said in the subject line the staff were all quite rude to me, I was treated with near hostility by some and definite disrespect by others, the view from the third floor was fantastic if you like the ocean and the room was spacious and clean but the the bad attitude from the the staff was inexcusable.

Pondicherry is an extremely safe place for a solo traveller. And I felt even more at ease at this place. They are a bit strict on the rules but the rooms are spacious and clean. Complete value for money. The place is located just off the promenade and has an amazing view and a beautiful garden. Since you can walk... More

Large simple but clean rooms. Higher floors have sea view and view of beautiful garden. Did not enjoy food in their restaurant (only tried breakfast).We were told that one cannot book this place...you have to show-up to know if room is available.
