Traditional french colony feel, close to beach and other landmarks. If you are expecting a modern resort this is not the place for you, but if you want to experience a stay in a french village, this is the perfect place in Pondicherry.

The hotel is very well located within the French town. The person on the reception 'Mr Jerrad' was very kind and helpful. He gave us a lot of touristic information about Londicherry from food to tourist sites. The food at the restaurant needs improvement, both the breakfast buffet and al-a-carte. However, the tenderloin steak was yum.

We honestly weren't thrilled with our stay here. Although the property is good, its the buffet breakfast that really puts you off. To start with its hardly a buffet. One or two local dishes kept without food warmers is all that you can get besides one bowl of cereal & tea, coffee. They have a nice sit out which adds... More

We liked the quaintness of this hotel that is starting to look a little brab, it would have been fabulous 5 years ago. Our room was reasonably clean and comfortable but the restaurant and breakfast room was grubby, with old decorations left lying around and it felt un-cared for. We enjoyed an early morning promenade from the hotel as it... More

In french it means a "Good place to stay" . If you are looking for a weekend getaway and bored with the usual modern hotels and architecture DU Parc is the place you should be . 16th Century villa takes you back to the years gone away from all the modern hustle and bustle and creature comforts of any posh...

A quaint hotel in the middle of a busy street – that’s Hotel Du Parc. It takes a moment to register that the ‘lobby’ is actually an open desk right by the entrance. There is no show here, just a plain unadorned procedure that takes less than 5 minutes. A group of five, we rented the suite for the night... More
