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 painted yellow, with gorgeous rooms, many of which have two floors, pretty staircases leaded atop, and these guys have made wonderful use of space in every corner of the property.
The staff is extremely warm, helpful and very kind. They will arrange everything for you from the transportation, to transit or any other little favour that you need of them. They are very forthcoming and efficient too.
The rooms are beautiful and well maintained, clean and always smelling pleasant. Breakfast isn't as bad as I had read in a few reviews on TripAdvisor. It's basic and if you want something special, these guys are happy to prepare it.
I was very happy with my order of eggs and South Indian dishes which was included in the Breakfast of course.
Overall I had a wonderful experience at this property and the rates are pretty decent for the kind of hospitality these guys offer.
If I visit Pondicherry again, this will definitely be on the top of my list for the kind of positivity and friendly vibe they have going on in their tiny space of French heaven.
