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.

I was for a lecture at this hotel. The drive from the airport is long but I had landed early morning so the traffic was less. The check-in took some time as there was a miscommunication but the front desk executive was very helpful and made me comfortable.

This is an old property but well maintained. I had stayed here a few years earlier, they have continued to keep it very well. The room on the 2nd floor was spacious ( they do have different types of rooms). The conference hall was well made up with good audiovisual. The food as expected was very good. The bathroom is ok. The showers could be better, if you are tall it is a bit difficult. Overall, a good place to stay in Chennai.

This is centrally located, hence good for business travellers who needs to travel. Rooms are not very big as compared to five star rooms- but all amenities are there & well maintained. I would suggest this hotel more for business travellers rather than luxury seeking travellers.

The location is the best thing about this hotel. Its right in the middle of the city, and all major business/ tourist locations are easily accessible. The rooms are spacious with all the necessary add-ons which a star hotel should have. The RainTree (South Indian cuisine) is a restaurant, I would definitely recommend. A comfortable stay on the whole.

This is a destination in its own. A hotel which was around 200 years old, still very well-maintained. Each aspect reminds you old age grandness of India. It was surprising to see old old so well-maintained. They have created a balance between traditional and modern times. Big rooms, nice food, courteous staff. They have it all.

The purpose of my visit was for a short stay during the entire week but it got extended for the weekend and we had great time at Taj Connemara. All the amenities were ideally suited for all of us who stayed with me, my office friends and colleagues. The staff were very courteous and very service friendly. The beds and bathrooms were clean and was cleaned and replaced daily. It is a bit expensive but still it is worth the price. The food we got ordered were okay but the service was worth it.

I travelled along with my family and stayed in the hotel called Taj Kanimara. The service provided by the management was good. My overall experience in this hotel was good. The best of hotel was very calm place without any disturbance and the safety for children, welcome wishes from this hotel was superb. The hotel is located ten kilometres away from the Railway Station so I did not face any issues to reach. The hotel surrounding was neat and well-maintained like a home. The staffs in the hotel were helpful to our entire request on time. The appearance of the hotel and decoration was good. The room allotted to me was good and maintained spacious, neat with pillows, bed sheets in fine condition. I opted for AC room so all the amenities were in working condition. I did not notice any kind of view from the room. They maintain washroom neat and clean with hot and cold-water facility. I ate food from outside restaurant. There was no delay in check in and checkout. There were some activities or sightseeing organised by the management but I did not utilize it. The money was value and I can recommend this hotel to others.

It's good to visit and to experience additional fun facilities. The way of servicing is awesome and the way of welcome can be much better. But the price is too high for some food and the worth of the some dish is disappointing comparatively.
