Hotel du Parc is located on the edge of the French Quarter, a few minutes walk from the Ashram, the Ganesha temple and the promenade. The rooms are adequate with a quaint touch--- stairs leading up to an upper floor with a single bed, i.e. a duplex room. Service is acceptable, but neither the choice nor the presentation of the...

Hotel Du Parc added that charm to our Pondy trip. One of my friends stayed here last year and she recommended this place to me. We got upgraded to a deluxe room (a duplex style, perfect for 4 people); the decor was lovely, the rooms were clean, the food is lip-smacking and the entire place is designed like a dream.... More

I stayed in this heritage hotel in mid July'14, it is inside the french colony, and practically within walkable distance from all attractions. We reached there in early morning, and as we stand in-front of the gate, we found the whole place is very inviting. It has an old french villa touch. People in the hotel are very helpful and... More

A hotel with the feel of an old French Vila feel, we were satisfied with our stay at this place. We stayed in room no 1, which is unique as as it has an attic/duplex type setting with an additional mattress placed here which was ideal for the kids. Economical and with complimentary Buffet breakfast which is quite decent. The... More

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.
