We visited Pondicherry with parents. And we had our 3 year old with us. This guest house was a heaven on earth. We could see the sea from our balcony. Sunrise, sunset, endless waves, the watch tower - all just sitting in our room. The rooms were very neat and clean. Imagine the standards as it even impressed my mom... More

I Have stayed at tthe Park guest house on numerous ocassions, howver please note that it is not one of the recent kind of 5/4 star hotels with room service/WIFI/TV etc. A very simple and basic place which offers decent yet comfortable accomodation.Situated bang in front of the sea. Most of the rooms are sea facing and offer a lovely... More

First of all, this is NOT a restaurant, but a guest house attached to the Ashram, Rooms are clean and spacious, providing all the basics. Beautiful garden, view and atmosphere. I went there with my parents for a short visit during this summer. But we too found that the people at the reception to be very curt and impolite in... More

I stayed there 3 times but the last 2 times was bad , and last once we checked out and went to Dumas Guest House (much better). The Place and Area is just amazing, and 20 Years ago it was a very great stay. It's still an amazing place, but the management sucks, would not even call it spiritual any... More

I stayed in this GH with family during last week of sept 2014. The people in the reception are very hard mind people. They are said we are volunteers from Ashram but their behaviors are really very low class, even they don't know how to talk with the guests. They put every where proverbs, but they didn't follow even one... More

It is not a restaurant or a cafe, it is a safe, decent, clean and spiritual stay for every traveller to stay at this Park Guest House. I really enjoy staying at this place, the Sea view and the hospitality of the staff in the Park Guest House. #This_Is_Not_A_Restaurant.

This guest house dies not take reservations over phone. Understandable as is the case with most guest houses attached to the Ashram. But the people @ the front desk definitely need to greet tired travellers with a smile & some warmth. Their booking & payment rules are quite confusing. If u pay for only one day u are not sure...

This is not a resturant ,it is worse than a canteen.Unless you are staying here avoid the place like the plague.Incase you are staying here only have the coffee or tea in the morning that too instant from the machine for all other meals go out.

Beautiful view. Spartan but clean accommodations. My partner had been here before and loved it. When we went together we hit a very curt person checking us in. We were there in September, which was HOT and mosquito-filled, so while I would recommend in the winter, I would not recommend in warmer weather. We were on the top floor which... More

This place is supposed to be listed under guesthouses, at the very least. Not a restaurant. The place is an auxiliary of the Shri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry and has rules that are to be followed to the letter. The guest house is not for people touring for fun. They have a whole set of instructions et al. The blaring thing... More
