This boutique hotel is located centrally in the old french town of Pondicherry and it used to be the house of the Mayor. The hotel has a typical French architecture with large, spacious rooms and a beautiful open central courtyard. My stay with my wife was very pleasant and comfortable. The hotel staffs were very efficient and caring. We had our breakfast in the hotel restaurant and the food was really tasty.I would strongly recommend this hotel to all !!!!!

very beautiful place and very well maintained. The violin played on weekends for dinner makes it a special place to be in . the daily food menu is something very exciting and interesting to try different things put together as a meal.

Le Dupleix has the perfect atmosphere of a French colony. I had an amazing stay here. The rooms were beautiful and clean. Amazing food! Staff is friendly and helpful. I had come with my family and we all enjoyed a lot. As this hotel is situated at a place that is far from traffic, it was a very relaxing and peaceful stay. Thanks for everything!!! :)

A long unwinding weekend at Pondicherry brought us to Le Dupleix - one reason restored Mayors residence- a heritage structure. On the quiet rue on the corner is this beautiful
white structure with a large courtyard with rooms on three levels. The hotel exudes charm and peace- the rooms are colonial and large.
Although I was hoping for a first floor room, the hotel was booked so I got a ground floor room (#2). Huge room, very high ceilings, four poster elevated bed and a window which lets the morning sun in while reading your news paper.
The bathroom was a grouse- tiny tub so you can’t bathe- and the walls seemed wet with leaks plus they did not have floor rugs for the wet floors.
When you leave the room door open by any chance, guests will mistake it for a restaurant entry or a washroom since the ground floor room entries are through the restaurant.
The staff is excellent and very courteous and takes to your needs promptly. We needed a bike rented for the day and since they could not find us one - one of the staff let his bike and we got to know only in the evening about it - now that’s service- Thank You Vasan! Same goes for ordering food for my sick friend which was off the menu and their service hours.
The food - although I did not do justice by eating from the restaurant is excellent- They have a lovely breakfast spread.
Le Dupleix leaves you happy

Looking for authentic french food we chanced upon Le Dupleix. It is one of the oldest buildings in the heart of old French town of Pondicherry and is believed to
be 200 years old. It has been restored and converted in one of the two design oriented hotels by the Kapurs of Hidesign family. It is run by Sarovar Hotels. Originally it was built as the residence to French Mayor of Pondicherry, Dupleix. It has 14 luxurious rooms and 2 restaurants, Gourmet' Restaurant and The Governor's Lounge Bar.
Unfortunately there was a tandoori festival on and the only two authentic french dishes available in the bar were Poulet Saute Chasseur and Classic tenderloin steak. Both the dishes were well done and really tasty. The old regal building and the atmosphere in the bar made our evening very special.
