Excellent Service, Good Food, Nice Location
Excellent Service. Excellent Food. But the rooms were pretty old and not spacious.

The service is exceptional... and even that is an understatement. The over all experience was great. The hotel is somewhat stuck between trying to be modern as well as maintain a historic feel. other than that great!

Excellent staff, service and food
Excellent staff and service and great food. Only problem was that the room next door was noisy because of children and the walls did not allow any sound proofing, so I had to ask for a room change. Room was changed and was better although smaller.

Under construction and bad service
Hotel was under construction and there was constant banging. Telephone did not work in the first room and had to call several times. Overall not a great experience

Grest hotel in the heart of the city...
This is an excellent hotel. I have stayed here many times during my visits to Chennai. I prefer the rooms in the deluxe wing of the hotel, which are furnished in Victorian style. The rooms are clean and the service outstanding. The gym is well equipped.
