Stayed here for only one night.. I wish I could have stayed longer.. I had driven to Pondy from Chennai. Before booking the room, I was concerned that they don''t have their own parking lot. I called them up to inquire about it and they assured me that they will take up full responsibility for my car while I stay...

The restaurant in the hotel is average and the staff in the restaurant is very laid back. I'd go back again just for the rooms in the heritage villa hotel! the location of the hotel is great...

A wonderful surprise of warmth and great hospitality this was. Hotel Du Parc is located at one of the most prime spots of the city with a close proximity to the main attractions that Pondicherry has to offer. Apart from the obvious, the hotel is made with remarkable skill incorporating bits of pieces of the French colonial structures, its strikingly...

Situated very near close at a walk able distance from the Gandhi beach, this place couldn't be any better, it has lovely arrangements for stay as well as dropping by with friends for a couple of drinks. The service is totally satisfying and the aura of the place reminds you of the old french hotels. The construction of the place...

We stayed two nights during a long weekend holiday, the city was crammed. Once in the gate, peace and quiet prevailed. Lovely building and staff. The grounds are leafy and green with pleasant undercover sitting areas. Our room was large with a lofty foyer and bathroom downstairs, a sitting area, queen bed and separate single bed upstairs.

This hotel is made from French bungalow and hotel is good. We booked standard room and was upgraded to deluxe room. There is not much difference between standard and deluxe room. Suit rooms are very good. Service at reception was good and breakfast was tasty. This is budget hotel.

We stayed at hotel du parc from 25 to 27 Jan 2017. The staff is good but helpless as management not interested in maintaining the property. There was a intolerable drainage stink in the bathroom for which the staff could do nothing. The toiletries were only soap and a sachet. The restaurant staff was wearing a t shirt of another...

Loved the location right in the middle of the City and the staff were fantastic, very helpful with organising other activities e.g. cooking classes and taxi back to Chennai. We did ask to change our room as the first one had the double bed against a side wall so you had to crawl over it to get in! The second...
