After much traveling in India, we arrived in Chennai to a sad situation of very poor quality & service. The saying,"All that Glitters is not Gold" certainly relates to Pleasant stay. Sadly our trip was marred from unpleasant situations in this facility. The pictures advertised are of the owners living areas downstairs with only 2 average rooms upstairs. An A/C... More

I too was part of the group of 12 who stayed here in April 2105. The room that was allocated to us was OK, but the linen in two of the other rooms was soiled and dirty.
