The Dumas is a pleasant heritage guesthouse in a tranquil setting. Close to the seafront and among the quiet streets of the old French neighbourhood,you are away from the noise but within walking distance of many of the sights. The owner is friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Dumas Guest House for 4 nights and enjoyed the quiet oasis of this lovely property. Bala, Jackie and the staff were helpful and kind. Breakfast was simple but delicious. The location is very quiet and clam yet just off the busy beach promenade.

We were lucky to have found Dumas .Its in a street parallel to the Gandhi Beach. The Staff at Dumas was very helpful .They gave us maps locating the places to visit in pondicherry. The place is clean and quite. The rooms were big and comfortable , with huge washrooms. There are good restaurants just a short walk away.
