This is a lovely guest house with a great host and friendly staff. We stayed for one night and had a very relaxing time. Our room was huge with beautiful old furniture and lovely decor. The bathroom was also a good size and the shower was probably big enough for a rugby team. There is a wonderful and well tended... More

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 were two friends who visited Pondi and chose to stay here at Dumas Guest House. We had a very good stay. The hosts are welcoming and non interfering. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. 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
