I stayed here for 1night longer than anticipated in January, a welcoming quiet place,very friendly and helpful owners, and so conveniently located for walking to the promenade, sight seeing etc.very comfortable room, hot shower.
Would highly recommend for all travellers, but particularly for solo travellers

Thanks so much to Jacqueline and staff for a perfect stay. We were treated like old friends and felt rested and at home. The location is really great - we were able to walk very easily to places we wanted to visit - looking forward to our next visit to Pondi.

Love staying at Heritage properties and this one was a gem. Our hosts were super and bent over backwards to be helpful and go the extra mile. This was the first guest house I have ever stayed in and it has convinced me that it is the way to travel in India. I would go back in a minute and I thank the travel route that places like these with such great hosts exist.

I think this place truly justifies itself by being one of the best B&B's. Excellent rooms, great people and a perfect place to stay. Jaya and Bala (owners) are very helpful. The other staffs were very cordial and nice. The breakfast they serve is plenty and the whole heritage look is simply wow. Great going guys keep it up.

We travel a lot and generally stay at brand name Hotels. This was a first experience staying at a Guest House.
From start to finish the experience was great. It is family run and they make you feel at home. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Very clean. Everything was in working order. Lots of plants and greenery. On the day of departure, they organized breakfast early to accomodate our leaving early. Ideal place to hang out for relaxation.
Jackie and Bala were great hosts.
And great location as well.

Room Tip: It seemed that all rooms were equally good.

My girlfriend and I always wanted to stay in a place with a bit of heritage and we were lucky enough to find Dumas Guest House. The good thing is it's not a hotel, and it's not a home stay. So you get the organised-ness of a hotel without the bareness of someone's home. It's not over-furnished, or creepy like old places tend to get. The energy is quiet and comforting. The plants outside are soothing and add to the atmosphere. Consider this place if you want just a beautiful room to retire in after roaming around in Pondy, and can get by without room service and manage food on your own. There are enough places to eat around anyway.

Room Tip: Ones closer to the gate seem nicer.

This is a good value, pleasant place to stay - our rooms were large and clean. Our rooms also had privacy and there was plenty of quiet outdoor space in a courtyard and on the roof. The location is great. The owners get praise from other guests, but we found them to be a bit vague when we asked for advice about the area. The breakfast wasn't brilliant either. However, there are so many places to eat at that it doesn't matter. I had one of my most peaceful nights sleep here - it was quiet and comfortable. I'd definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 6 and 7. These both had outdoor space and were lovely and quiet.
