“Good property not maintained by owners”
Reviewed 28 January 2017 via mobile

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 co. No uniform for anybody. The lady sweeping the courtyard was putting bed sheets. The restaurant tapestry was dirty and stained.Breakfast was good. A nicely located good property being wasted. Not a hotel but a guest house. Disappointed.Wonder how they were displaying a certificate from TripAdvisor.

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 room was quite a bit better. The breakfast offering was pretty basic and the food overall OK. Everything could do with a bit of smartening up.

Recently on my weekend holidays , we stayed here for two days, wow...!!!Excellent ambience with luxurious amenities, the receptionists were soo friendly and humble, the rooms are quite large, the beds and pillows are soo soft, the bath fittings are truly world class, the interior decorations was soo marvelous , they provided us complimentary breakfast as well as room service, they also allocated us a parking slot, overall we enjoyed our stay here...!!!

Nice place to stay, but restaurant is avoidable. Staff is kind. They don't have their own car parking. You have to park on the road. So if you leave for a bit you may have to drive around to search for parking elsewhere and then walk back. That apart, its fine.

Great location too.

We enjoyed our stay, the staff were helpful and location excellent. Laundry took a long time, arrived around 10pm. The breakfast was passable and there is no tea making faculty. There was no complementary water but a bar fridge at reasonable prices.
