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.

The hotel is excellent in all respect like reception, ambiance, the staff behaviour, the food, minibar, etc. Room maintenance and the infrastructure in the room toilet are good.

We stayed here during 4th April to 6th April, 2015. It was wonderful stay for us and liked this hotel a lot! It is an historic hotel which adds to the overall experience. The location is excellent as this area is pretty much the heart of Chennai. This is a heritage property and is maintained very well. I stayed with family and had a wonderful stay. Breakfast at Verandah is truly enjoyable, both for its ambiance and the food. The swimming pool and its surrounds make a great and tranquil place to chill out and the spa and gym facilities very useful. Overall, it was a great stay at the Taj Connemara.

It's a very old property, almost 150 years + and not maintained the Taj way. Rooms are big but not maintained to match Taj standards. Need serious renovation of rooms and fixtures. Service is top class. If you wan to make stay record in Taj for very less price then this is the choice.
