I stayed at this B&B for one night. I was actually very disappointed when I got to the room. It was nothing like their website presents it. In fact, I don't know where the pictures on their website were taken at. The place is old and so are the furnishings. The paint is old and dirty. Overall, I do think... More

located probably in the absolute center of chennai. but surprisingly calm and quiet and yet accessible. roughly between Harley Davidson showroom and Louis Vutton showrooms , that kind of sums up the locality. The rooms per se are beautiful on the inside. the bellboy, who absolutely stole the show- cant remember his name but you'l know when u see him.... More

Really loved the place :) I loved the calm and quiet. The staff were really courteous, polite and eager to help in any way possible. I found the room very tidy. The only minor setback I faced here was giving the taxi drivers my location. I only knew the address as Wallace Garden, Nungambakkam, Chennai opposite to Nilgiris, but very... More

Rates as a two-star accommodation. This B&B turned up as I was looking for a night’s stay close to the US consulate(1.6KM). Turned out to be a great choice. The room we got was fairly well maintained and well designed in terms of furniture, glass shower case, good showerhead. The water quality was also good, esp. in Chennai, this was... More

Dear San Defacto, Sorry for the belated acknowledgement...Firstly thanks so much for your keen observations for which we are very grateful...we have got them corrected.

I have had a very bad experience of rates change. I talked with the concerned person around 25th March, when she told me 3000 for a twin bedroom and 500 for extra bed inclusive of all taxes.
