Reviewed 17 March 2017

The rooms are beautiful and the whole experience of living in a heritage villa is great. the room service and hygiene is good. The restaurant in the hotel is average and the staff in the restaurant is very laid back. I'd go back again just for the rooms in the heritage villa hotel! the location of the hotel is great as well since it's in the middle of white twon and everything you want to see is at walking distance.

Room Tip: Every room is unique and beautifully done up so it can get a little difficult to choose which one yo...

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.

Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 4 days in February 2017. The location of the hotel is perfect. Within 10mins of all tourist attractions and popular restaurants. The staff is really courteous, helped us with renting a scooty an hire of a car for our ride pack to crocodile Park and airport for a reasonable price. The wooden deck of their restaurant was our favourite chilling spot. It was under the mango tree and we sat there for hours sipping bear, reading, listening to music. The food, specially fish and steak were incredible. The room was extremely cute, clean and spacious.

Situated very near close at a walk able distance from the Gandhi beach, this place couldn't be any better, it has lovely arrangements for stay as well as dropping by with friends for a couple of drinks. The service is totally satisfying and the aura of the place reminds you of the old french hotels. The construction of the place doesn't let you remove an eye from staring continuously. There is a lovely wooden shack at the outside which is enriched with a lovable tree shade bringing a cool atmosphere. The drinks and the snacks can be enjoyed sitting over there. Not too far from the market and the city as well. The hotel staff are a bit too helpful whereas there seems to be a problem with the management. Overall,a Marvelous environment, brilliant food and a lovely shack to hangout with your loved ones !!!!
