Was visiting Chennai to get my US visa renewed again.. My dad has been a customer of this place for a long time and had reserved it for us... The hotel is a time capsule and gives you a feel for how things in Chennai were in the 70's maybe 80's... Good things: - Very close to the embassy... About... More

Myself and two of my colleges stayed in the hotel for a day. The reason for choosing the hotels is, it is very close to the US Consulate just 5 mins walk. Marina beach is very near 30 mins by bus and Shopping area T.Nagar is just 3km. The best thing of the hotels is the complimentary Buffet Breakfast which... More

This hotel is really a fantastic place if you are visiting with family and has a large parking area. The cottages are just like a small villa in their own way. The service is good, the food is excellent and the restaurant is cosy and a little modern. The hotel is value for money and might not boast of any... More

This is a hotel in Chennai on Kodambakkam High Road, which is patronised by visiting families to Chennai as a place where family women can stay around without any offense to their sense of modesty. It is a quaint building with the air of hotel frozen in time, say about 40 years back. It has a fairly large parking lot,... More

You need to look at this hotel in a different way. So a review of this hotel cannot be compared to any other present generation hotel. This hotel may be as old as you and probably your parents or grandparents must have stayed here. But I would say that this hotel is simply majestic. The wide corridors, the spacious ambience,...

I stayed there for nearly five days. I enjoyed the stay. Good food, comfortable room, courteous service. At dinner time on Oct 2 (Pooja festival) the dining hall (Menaka) was, understandably, overcrowded and noisy, and several guests, including me, had to wait for some seats to become vacant. Obviously, the guests must have felt at home. Otherwise, they would not... More

Stayed at the hotel for a night. The hotel is part of the Ballal group which also has a presence in Bangalore and other places. It's an old world hotel and I would equate it with being similar to Woodland. They have large spaces in the town center, restaurants and typically marriage/party hall. Palmgrove is very well located in the... More
