Fantastic Heritage Hotel
Staying at Le Dupleix, a wonderfully restored heritage boutique hotel adds much to a trip to Pondicherry. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the hotel, while offering all the modern amenities, retains a very special French character and charm. The staff was always welcoming and friendly. It was a pleasure to return to the hotel after sightseeing or swimming at their sister property, Le Promenade. Mr. Prabu, the reception manager at Le Dupleix provided exceptional assistance, even locating a local jeweller who could repair a ring that I had purchased in Jaipur. To go to such lengths is an indication of Mr Prabu's desire to ensure that all aspects of a guest's stay are positive. We highly recommend Le Dupleix.

Charming boutique hotel in Whitetown with impeccable staff who treat each guest as a special VIP and work hard to accommodate special requests (such as special food order for baby).

4/5 Good

Fantastic location
The location cannot be beat. The hotel has character. Perhaps too much character. The wifi is not very good. The attached restaurant is overpriced, but there are many nearby places that compensate for that. The room was in dire need of an update. The staff tried their best to overcome the limitations of a property that needs to be upgraded.

The property was good aesthetically but was not maintained well. No 5star quality , creaking floor boards , nails on the floor boards which hurt us, not clean....bathtub was dirty. Renovations were going on which was not mentioned before booking. Smell of the kitchen was overpowering mostly at night. Noise of doors & furniture disturbed us at night. Overall was cheated with an exhorbitant non refundable amount.
