This hotel looks really nice from the outside and the inside. When you arrive you are pleasantly surprised by the nice looks and decoration of the hotel. But after one night we realized how this hotel really is. The bed were terrible, my mom didn't sleep at all and her back was hurting. The extra bed in the room was... More

After struggling with bookings in an overbooked Pondi for the new year's eve we were lucky to stumble upon Le Dupleix. A heritage property located in the French quarters walking distance from everything nice, Le Dupleix is elegantly restored with a good mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, beautiful balconies and verandahs, double heights, corridors over looking a green courtyard....

This review is about the restaurant in Le Dupleix....wow what a find. This restaurant offers both inside and al fresco dining. My favourite was al fresco, with the sound of running water and the beautifully lit courtyard. What stands out is the professional and friendly service from the team. From the moment we walked through the door we felt as... More

Relax an chill out in this French colonial villa. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and attentive from advice on sightseeing to arranging transportation from Chennai and locally during our stay. I was taken aback when one member of staff offered me his mobile phone for a local call. I was very thankful. The room could have done with a... More

The reason to be here is the building's french architecture that promises to take you back to the colonial era and its proximity to the promenade beach. Another added advantage is the location with Nehru street close by for shopping and all other eateries just round the corner. Its costly but if you ever wanted to live a french dream... More

Beautiful small boutique hotel with courteous staff located in the posh French Quarters. Has a lovely courtyard restaurant that is well lit for dinner. Breakfast is not a huge spread but decent. The staff helped arranged a scooty on nominal rates to explore the city. Aurobindo Asrham, beach is a few meters away. French Qtr is undoubtedly the best place... More

Interestingly converted hotel around a very attractive courtyard, which serves as the outside tables for the restaurant. Rooms very comfortable, staff attentive and helpful. The restaurant did a good meal in the evening, tasty food with a good choice of dishes, French and Indian. Breakfast was sufficient but the staff stretched to look after us all, and the cooked breakfast... More

Attentive staff, great live Violinist on Saturday's. Its a cozy setting, with good accessibility to the near by french quarter. However, the breakfast menu is limited, which is included with the room rate. All in all, a good place to stay even for a week.

The best French food in white town is what I read online and it totally lived up to that expectation. The restaurant is quaintly located in the courtyard of the Le Dupleix hotel (where we were staying), soft lighting and nice music adds to the ambience. The staff is very attentive and accommodating to all requests. The fusion French-pondy food... More
