I was staying with family in this Hotel for 3 days. Paints of the Ceiling and and Bath rooms are peeled of and in 3 days rooms are not made. Very poor room service. Rooms are not maintain properly. All the 3 days foods are the same on buffe. Most of the time reception will not attend the calls.

Seems to be the only hotel near Tambaram, so is booked out mostly. Rooms are average : spacious but old fashioned and badly needs an overhaul. Toilet was clean but very old.Some additional space would have been a plus AC remote wasn't working, and could do with better TV set. Complimentary breakfast is a complete disappointment : no continental items,... More

My friend made a stopover for dinner in Henkala before I could take the flight back home. We chose the buffet for dinner and it had variety of veg choices and the Kaju Masala was really good. The price is also moderate and is a good place to go for lunch/dinner.
