I stayed for 3N with my family in Pondichery. The location of this hotel is good. It is close to most of the places that one would like to visit. Aurobindo ashram is ~400metres, Promenade is ~600m, Ganesha temple is ~100metres, Bharati park is ~300metres. It is on JN Street. I stayed in a suite room, on the ground floor.... More

Olde-world charm and most helpful staff. Thoroughly enjoyed staying here and wouldn't hesitate to do so again. Centrally located, good food and well priced. My only issue was a lack of hot water and pressure.

Visited Pondy for the first time last week and we wanted to stay in a heritage villa rather than a plain hotel room....and du Parc fulfilled on both counts...economically too. The staff are well behaved and helpful. The rooms are neat and spacious enough. The place has a homely feel to it with great ambience...the location is good. It is... More

I love Pondicherry and visit once in a few months.This time round, I was taking my aunt and uncle here and wanted to stay and explore the French Quarters. Hotel Du Parc was a perfect stay in this aspect. It is a beautiful heritage building. Chrome yellow and difficult to miss, great location- a short walk from Aurobindo Ashram and... More

My husband and I are fans of antique/ heritage homes converted to hotels. Du parc is exactly that, with its French style entrance doors, high ceilings, duplex rooms and all that jazz. The property was built in the 1700s by the French colonials, which gives my husband and I a breeze of history that it might've witnessed during those times.... More

I think we have been here around ten times, and the stay was never disappointing. Most of the times, luckily, we get upgraded to deluxe rooms inspite of booking a standard room. My husband loves anything that's antique n we both fell in love with this place instantly. My friend introduced me to this place before 5 years n we... More

I also stayed at the Hotel du Parc based on Tripadvisor. Many visitors had highly praised it. I must say I was disappointed. As a visitor has written before me: “Hotel doesn't look as good as good as pictures, but a fairly clean place to stay. Staff is helpful, friendly but slow. Breakfast is sufficient. Beat about this hotel is... More

We stayed as a family of 4 and had a great stay for 2 nights in May 2013. The games... More

If you want a quaint and no frills heritage stay with old world charm, choose this hotel. We stayed here for 4 nights and it was well worth it. The only drawback was the cold and scanty breakfast. If you prefer a more happening area in the French Quarters, go for Bussy Street. It has an array of fine boutique... More

This is a colonial property converted into a hotel with additions of more rooms. Its has excellent location in French town just next to governor's bungalow and near famous Ganapati temple. It is close to beach and that's its greatest strength 'coz one tend to hangout at promenade every evening in Pondy. They also have a multi-cuisine restaurant with great... More
