We were there last Nov 2014.. this place is very well located. The owners are extremely friendly and so pleasant to talk to. The guest house offers breakfast only.. which is very good and an excellent way to start the day.. will definitely recommend this place..

The preferred method of transport is the bicycle; tree-studded boulevards are lined with pastel-colored churches and villas; and the town's magnificent promenade along the Bay of Bengal is everyone's favorite place for a stroll. Staying in... More

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.
