Approx 17 Kms from the airport and right in the city center. Its an old heritage hotel taken over by Taj and its beautiful. Rooms are just spacious enough with everything required. Bathrooms are fitted with bathtubs and showers with difft modes of sprays. Breakfast was excellent with the spread.Highly recommended.

Went here with family for my parents' 30th wedding anniversary. They were very helpful and happy to accommodate all our requests. They even offered to bake a cake for dessert after the dinner. Very friendly, great ambiance, nice music and great tasty chettinad food!

I went there for a business trip and I must say that the hotel is good. The rooms are neat and clean and service is good. Also, the food is above average to good. Worth the money folks. The pool is also well maintained.

Stayed in the Hotel for 4 nights this month. Being lean season, was able to get a good room rate. Check in process was smooth and quick. Was upgraded to the next level room, being a Taj Inner Circle Member. However was not impressed with the room even though it is quite big. The carpet was smelling, and we requested... More

The Taj Hotels are simply the best for service and quality in India. My first time here I liked the music they were playing in the lobby so I asked the staff what it was with the thought that I could go buy it in a store. They did not know but said that they would find out. The next... More

Very nice experience to come to the Taj Cornemara, after 2 weeks of exhausting trip all around India. I found the friendly welcome, and the quality of service I needed. I couls leave rejuvenate. The only bad point, the hotel being not responsible for it, is that surroundings are under construction. But maybe that is fast growing India.

I stayed at Taj Connemara for a day and the experience was great. The hotel property is not very big and luxury facilities too are limited but there is an old world charm to this place and you can feel the soul of an old luxury hotel. The staff is extremely courteous and friendly. I was given a courtesy upgrade... More
