No real issues - a lovely colonial style hotel with very courteous staff. I would recommend this to anyone. Food excellent and a fab choice for breakfast - I would like a cappuccino rather than just filter coffee. And they should make sure hand drying tissues are stocked up in the toilets. Other than that the rooms were spacious and... More

Spent 4 nights here after having only booking 2 , it was so good. The place is full of history and whilst it looks nothing from the outside, it is magnificent inside. Our room was large and well furnished with a choice of scented pillows, no less! Staff were plentiful, helpful and friendly. It had a wonderful outdoor pool just... More

We reached the Vivanta by Taj during the Chennai floods. The hotel communication was cut off, Wi-Fi was down, telephone lines not working - but that was all over Chennai and the surrounding areas and not just this hotel's issue. It was an eye-opener when we were informed that despite this handicap, the hotel cooked lemon rice and rasam and... More

The room was very comfortable with a sitting area and off the hall area a very nice bathroom. The facilities at the hotel were very good. We ate at both the main... More

Stayed here for one night. This hotel has atmosphere as there are some nice statues and design inside that lets you know you are in india. The breakfast area had a nice view out to the swimming pool. My bathroom was clearly quite old and the shower over the bath didnt work.

Spent a night here with friends on our way back from Pondicherry. This is apparently one of India's oldest 5 star hotels. Got to hand it to the Taj group......Spectacular service as always. The guest relations team rocks. All our requests were promptly addressed. Its a relatively small property but that works very. Rooms could be refurbished. Good dining options.... More
