“Sufficient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Hotel doesn't look as good as good as pictures but a fairly clean place to stay. Staff is helpful. Breakfast is sufficient. Beat about this hotel is location in the French section of Pondicherry. Don't take room on street unless you like dark rooms... You won't be able to open your curtains because people right outside your window all day long. Fantastic restaurant across street!

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

This is a lovely heritage hotel very centrally sited so it is easy to walk everywhere. We had ground floor rooms which were large, clean and quiet. The staff were helpful and attentive. The food was good but no real atmosphere in the dining room so we ate out on the second night. Pondicherry is a great place to visit.

We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Du Parc is a very pleasant place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and extremely clean. The staff members are very hospitable and helpful. Anything you ask, they would always be more than happy to help. The food is delicious and the restaurant staff too are good people to interact with. The location is superb. In the French side of the town, very close to the beach. Many good retsurants and the beach are a stone's throw away. We could walk to many places nearby. All in all, one of the best places we have ever stayed in, and won’t mind going back again to.

We went there for dinner on valentine's day..
The hotel seemed like an average hotel nothing too great.
The cushion covers seemed a bit smelly and the area under the mango tree was full of smoke (ciagrette) and mosquittos.
The waiters there need to be a tad bit hospitable as pondicherry is full of restaurants that greets u with a smile , gives u recommendations on what to order.
None the less we ordered for an Alfredo pasta considering it to be a safe option and yes it was tasty.
Following it was chocolate fondant cake which was freshly baked and delicious.

We were a group of Friends and we took the Suite which is in the Ground Floor. Very Spacious with comfortable Beds and good basic amenities.... Lack of Coffee Maker was a put off... The Staff were really wonderful. Very helpful and patient. They even went out of the way to provide us with a plate of Fruits and some Bread with Butter and Jam at 12.00 in the midnight since we were hungry after a night of Partying.... The place is so close to the Market Street and also the Famous Ganesha Temple.... The Beach is just 5 min walk. We did enjoy the place.

If you are looking for a heritage stay and still want to be near the hustle & bustle of the center, this is the place you should stay. Location wise great, since it is walking distance to the shoreline, to the Auro Ashram and to the main market. You couldnt want any better place....

The place is not huge, but decent with around 6-8 rooms..all AC,,heritage, clean and tidy...in house restaurant serves all kinds of food with buffet breakfast included in the tariff....

has a wonderful sit-out deck where u can relax while eating and sipping, though post sun set, mosquitoes will hamper your enjoyment....

all in all great place to stay if you are looking for heritage decent comfort stay with good food and a great location

Room Tip: Take rooms on the ground floor, you will enjoy the covered sitout
