This place is well located in the middle part of White Town. Once while loitering around White Town we came across this restaurant. We Love trying out new eateries and immediately entered this place. As it was lunchtime no reservation was need and we got our seats instantly. All my friends loved the ambiance as it has kept the place well designed in old french style.The restaurant looked cozy yet trendy.
The menu had a good variation in continental dishes. Along with variation the food quality and taste was perfect. Would acknowledge the cook did every type of meat cooked to perfection. All in one it was a great experience would love to go back. Also though we did not stay at the Hotel but the rooms sure looked cozy and lovely.

Hotel Du Parc is simple yet beautiful Hotel., its an old villa converted to a hotel while maintaining the French architecture. its is located a few mins from the Promenade and major attractions in White Town. its a quaint location, no noise or sound. If you want an undisturbed and quiet stay, this is the place to be. There is a Vinayak Temple just across the street which is visited by many devotees every day. But you are not disturbed by any sound. its a noise free location and you can almost hear the silence. The rooms themselves, are very simple you have a big bed which has very good mattresses a TV and AC, the staff is very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast is simple with Bread, Eggs, butter, Jam, Cornflakes, juices and dosas, idlis on one day there were chicken cocktails. The restaurant has a heritage feel and has a selected menu ranging from veg and non veg and alcohol too, Hot Water is available in the morning and evenings. I would recommend this place for families as well. Walk to the nearby Park and the Promenade is nice.The Promenade and other attractions in the White Town Area are within walking distance, you can also visit other locations via auto rickshaw, book a cab via the hotel. The local market is also a stones throw away The major distinction of this location is that it is clean, pollution free both sound and smell, no spitting anywhere in the locality. A good place to relax and chill. The welcoming staff - Mr. Venkatesh and Gerard at the reception, staff in the restaurant and all other staff, do a tremendous job to ensure that you enjoy your stay.!!! Thank You for the experience!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice and quiet.

A quaint french colonial architecture and very friendly staff. it is on the MG Road and close to all the key shopping areas and the beach is just a five minutes walk away. the rooms are cozy and very nicely maintained. We stayed in one of the deluxe suites and it was very comfortable. Itis seldom that one comes across people as sincere as those at the Du Parc Hotel, Pondicherry, as the staff made great effort to send over the silver rings we misplaced back home to Bangalore.
Definitely the place to stay at in Pondicherry.

Its a hotel which is lit up so well every single day. You just cant be gloomy or depressed in this ambience. it is a kids delight. It is a great place for the elderly couples too as it is situated right opposite to the Manakula Vinayaka temple. The street shopping is just a minute away. The Surguru spot is right opposite. The french colony is at a walking distance and so is the beach. What else you can ask from a hotel.
