    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).

  • 2.0.Poor

    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.

    A very relaxing property with good food and helpful staff? The bed in the room where I stayed is too high and difficult to get into.

    Excellent design and the friendliest staff.

    I spent two nights at Le Dupleix and I would certainly go back. The hotel is in a quiet street closet to the beach and is a wonderful mixture of contemporary design and antiques. The staff went out of their way to make me feel at home and immediately took care of whatever little thing I asked for. Such a lovely bunch of beautiful young people. They serve continental and Indian breakfast .The only thing that surprised me, and that you should be aware of, is that the room is all glassed in and the windows cannot be opened. The AC worked well and there are bamboo shades and curtains all around for privacy and light control, but I was looking forward to sleeping under a fan in the balmy south Indian nights. One pleasant surprise was that the same company owns another Hotel a few blocks away on the waterfront with pool and spa, and the Le Dupleix guests are invited to use their facilities as well.

    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.

    No Elevator...so going up two flights with my aged parents was a pain. However, the staff was kind enough to give us a Ground floor room.
