The hotel was very clean and the services were also above the expectation. I was totally delighted by the staff behaviour and the courtesy. My stay was there for two days organized by my company and the experience that I got truly was great. The hotel had good beautiful lawn too.

The property was a heritage and got converted into luxury. The rooms are nice but the furniture is very old. The food is tasty and the service is fast. The staff is pretty friendly and the room tariff is reasonable. The hotel has all amenities and is a great place to spend a weekend with family.

Location & Property:It has an amazing large property by the sea, great green lush lawns, and plenty of things to do for everyone.

Services:As expected from a Taj, the service was prompt, and courteous. The food & the spread was good.

Advise to travellers:Given the size of the property, this is an ideal place for any team-building or annual conferences for corporates, as it offers a lot in terms of scale. It is also a good option for couples wanting a private getaway.

Issues:Some of the rooms are very far from the front desk building, and one needs to really walk a lot to reach from one end of the property to the other.

Other issue is that they post-sundown, they don't allow one to enter the pool, which is really a downer, as its amongst the best times to be in a pool

I stayed at this hotel for 2 days and my experience is up top!! Best hospitality, excellent ambiance and ultra friendly staff.

But one thing which I want to share about cons is room furniture, what I find is very old, that is the only thing which disappointed me in this trip. Furniture is not as per 5 star level. Lots of other hotels which are of less rates have better furniture or built as compared to this.

Rest everything is perfect. Later on I got to know that this is a heritage property which is converted in to a hotel. A must go hotel if its fit your budget.

Taj Connemara is a 160 year old vintage property in the heart of old Madras city, now known as Chennai now. It was originally built as a guest house for British Governor. It then got converted into a hotel. Taj group bought over the property in 1984. It's a beautiful property reminiscent of the old British Era. The property and rooms are both spacious and quite. There are a lot of photographs of some of the historic moments in the property's 160 year existence. The overall, experience of staying in such a place is enchanting. The rooms are nice, sleep quality is excellent. They have bath tubs in the room, free Wi-Fi and complimentary fruits. The breakfast is signature Taj with lots of variety. The swimming pool is also quite big and peaceful. They have a well-equipped gym, spa and salon as well.

AC, TV, geyser and refrigerator were working properly. Swimming pool and many more activities were provided by the hotel. The staff behaviour was friendly and helpful. The hotel was located nearby the beach. The hotel had provided pick-up and drop facility. The location of the hotel was beautiful. The check-in and check-out procedure was on time. The room provided to me was neat, clean, spacious and well-maintained. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers.

This was my first business trip to Chennai. The room was very well lit and well made with old colonial style of furniture specially the wardrobe. It felt nice on walking on polished wooden staircase, its a different feeling. Extremely friendly, polite and helpful Staff across the hotel (front desk, room service, housekeeping, etc... ). The pool and the gardens are an oasis in the busy city of Chennai.
