I had a wonderful time staying at the Dumas Guest House. It was the perfect way to spend the last few days of my trip: very comfy, beautifully decorated, great location and wonderful service from Jackie, Bala and the rest of the staff. Highly recommended.

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.

We moved to Dumas guest house after being let down by l'escale, who put us in an entirely different part of town without even telling us We were delighted with Dumas - beautiful, huge rooms with oak furniture, friendly staff, and located among all the restaurants and cafes of the French quarter.

Being just few minutes walk from the promenade and yet away from the noise and chaos. Dumas is a great choice if you are looking for homely experience and are not in the need for room service.
