Very bad facilities

3.0/7
Posted 30 Oct, 2016

very bad facilities, might even say that there are none.If your looking forward to an overpriced hotel stay with no facilities and very bad rooms then this is the hotel for you.The only good point about this hotel is that its very close to the US consulate.

The overall experience was good

5.1/7
Posted 31 May, 2016

The overall experience was good in the hotel. The hotel was located inside the city. The transport facility was not arranged by the hotel. I went this hotel by my own vehicle. The room was ready before I reached the hotel. The behaviour of the staff’s was friendly and helpful in the hotel. All basic amenities were provided in the room. The Wi-Fi facility was available in the room. The room was neat and clean. I didn’t take food from the hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers. I didn’t check activity in the hotel. I would not suggest anything to this hotel.

Worst hotel I've ever spent a night

3.0/7
Posted 7 Apr, 2016

I stayed at the delux twin Ac room. The rooms are really really old, nothing has been upgraded since the 80's. The sheets had stains on them. The door knobs were nasty. Restrooms got infested with cockroaches at night. Wifi worked only in the hallway but not inside the rooms. Repeated complains fell on deaf ears. The front desk staff had a don't care attitude. The only reason I stayed here was because of its proximity to the US consulate. But with the advent of Uber and ola, I'd rather stay a little further away at a better place next time. The only good thing about this place was that their complimentary breakfast was awesome.

As I heard, Palmgrove is one of the oldest Hotels...

6.3/7
Posted 12 Sep, 2011

As I heard, Palmgrove is one of the oldest Hotels in Chennai. The stay in this hotel is awesome. I stayed for 2days / 1 night. The food is great and the kind of service is good. This is a 3 star hotel experience. However, in the heart of city (near Gemini fly over), this hotel is the best for the price.

The service at this hotel is amazing!

7.0/7
Posted 29 Mar, 2013

The service at this hotel is amazing! When we arrived the service at the reception was prompt and perfect! The room was a king size and the bathroom was really nice with a big glass shower. The room was ultra-clean. The hotel is quiet, really well located.. The hotel motto is to always improve their services to their customer and they do it really well. I had a laptop with me and the wireless access worked like a breeze in the room and in the living room. They also have a magnificent fireplace and nice leather seats to spend the evening. The breakfast is a healthy one (it\'s more like a continental breakfast) and is perfect to start the day in a good mood. We are already planning to return there in a couple of weeks.

Good housekeeping and excellent South Indian food

5.5/7
Posted 1 May, 2015

This is a nice hotel with very simple settings on the premises. The garden like ambiance gives you a relaxed feeling here. The rooms are nice, but could be better maintained. The simple utilities like AC, hot water and Wifi are taken care. The service is very nice with the staff being very courteous. The housekeeping do a good job of maintaining the rooms clean. The food in the hotel is just excellent with special reference to the South Indian Dosa and Pongal. My wife enjoyed the fresh juice here so that, it is recommended. The stay was pleasant.

Good stay and friendly staff with good service

5.4/7
Posted 2 Jul, 2015

I had a good stay at this hotel and it was prime location in the main city. The food served at this hotel was good with good service. I stayed for three days at this hotel did not face any delay in check-in and check-out process. I liked the quality and taste of the food with different varieties. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. The management did organised activities but I did not utilise as I had been for official purpose. The room allotted to me was neat and well-maintained. They had complimentary Wi-Fi but I did not opt but I did not have any view from the room. Chennai as a place, it is pretty good and it is my home town and it is a recommendable hotel. I had been to this hotel with my friends for business trip in February. It is bit expensive but value for money.

Old style hotel, great South Indian resturant

5.2/7
Posted 21 Oct, 2015

Stayed here in this facility. This facility is more than 50 years old and caters to the needs of mid income and low income traveller with various levels of room rentals available. The food is good. The biggest advantage is that this facility is near the US embassy / visa facilitation centres (a walk able distance from this facility).
