I have always been a sucker for offbeat stays and this surely provided one. While searching for an extended weekend stay I stumbled across many la/ le guest houses. Some stated they are already booked. Some demanded upfront payment. I think my transaction with Jackie was the most smoothest. Call and a simple mail n.. Volla it was done.. No... More

We was looking for a new Place but as they was books , we could stay... More

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 location is perfect as it is less than a minutes walk from the Beach road. It's safe and convenient. Highly recommended for... More

Pondicherry is one of the true gems of South India, a charming seaside colony oozing Gallic charm and infused with a deep Indian heritage. 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 breakfasts were great. The fridge in our room was very welcome. The addition of some tea /coffee facilities would be great to come back to in the afternoons. We... More

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.
