My husband and I stayed at Du Parc earlier this week for Christmas and we thought we were very lucky to select this hotel. The beautiful yellow colored heritage building takes you back to the old colonial times! The warmth of the building was further exuded by the warmth of the staff there. Very helpful and always smiling we really appreciated all the help given especially by Abdul and Ravi; who had been guiding us about our trip even before we landed in pondicherry. The hotel is perfectly located and the rooms are lovely with a good restaurant and bar service. Will definitely recommend this place to any who asks me!

A heritage hotel... was my 1st marriage anniversary and the staff made it a memorable one... ideally located market just 2 mins walk and promenade just about 5 mins walk... all tourist attractions 3 - 5 mins walk...

Room Tip: Ask for Room no. 3 its something you'd never imagined.

Nice place.Close to the promenade.Worth staying.Food not so great,but you have a lot of good restuatants near by.Rooms are clean but the only problem is ,you will not be able to open the windows to have a fresh breeze as the windows open up to the street.Except that everything else is fine.

Room Tip: Check for rooms on the top floor.

The hotel was good value for money. All the rooms were clean and spacious (although some are bigger than others), the food was generally very good both for breakfast and dinner. The staff were very helpful on places to go and the promenade is within easy walking distance, I would definitely recommend the hotel

Good food,good rooms, good value. It may be about time to do a little touch up maintenance. The hotel is central as it is located in the French Quarter but still close enough to the main shopping areas of the locals.There is also a Ganesha temple close by that has an Elephant that does blessing!

Had been with friends for a 2 day stay and let me tell you, we loved the place. We stayed in the suite and believe me, the rooms are huge, efficiently cooled (though we went in the winter). Service was fantastic, complimentary breakfast was propably the best I ever had.......yummy!! Did not goto their restaurant, but ordered dinner from there and believe me when I say this.......its the most delicious food I've ever had.......We loved our stay here and the ambience of this place is magnificent. A walk from the rocky beach and the city centre.......wonderfull place and highly recommend you to stay there. Mr. Abdul and Mr. Ravi were very good at catering to our needs.

Definately recommended......Planning to go again.....
