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

Located very close to American Consulate, this hotel, which in olden times was the haunt of film fraternity, caters to the US Visa seekers. The rooms are old, but spacious. Most of the fittings are quite old and makkes the room dated. The staff are very businesslike. What is attractive is the good buffet breakfast spread and the facility of... More

To start with the positives it is a walking distance from the consulate and close to all the city activity. There is an inhouse restaurant and some better restaurants just outside. Morning buffet was quite god. There it ends, unfortunately. The rooms were not as clean as you would expect for a family hotel. The towels and sheets looked as... More
