We thoroughly enjoyed this colonial gem in the heart of Chennai. Nice rooms, great food and very attentive staff. Convenient location in the heart of Chennai. Good internet service and many amenities in the bath. And the daily Hindu Times delivered to the mailbox!

The Connemara has literally been around for ages and is rightly known for its classiness through the years. The rooms in the older wing are large and spacious though the passage of time has not been kind to some of the infrastructure Nevertheless, budget permitting, selecting this hotel is a no-brainer for anyone who wants to soak in a bit...

This is now the second time we have stayed at the Taj. After a week of pleasant but austere accommodation in rural India, it was great to check-in and recharge, get a little pampered at the spa, do a little shopping and get ready for another week of rural health camps. Quiet and secluded, yet right in the middle of... More

A small(ish) Taj Hotel very conveniently located. Exemplary customer service and attention to the needs of guests. Bigger hotels can learn from this one. On the down side, room are a bit old and looking tired, so time for a refurbishment. Excellent breakfast buffet with all the local delicacies.(Not good for the waist line!)

Stayed one night with family.. We got complimentary upgrade to a suite which was very nice as we are travelling with 2 Kids.. Room was excellent.. But of course doesn't offer any views.. We availed In-room dining which was great... It's an old property of Taj right in the middle of the city.. A walking distance from Spencer shopping plaza..... More

When travelling for business for long durations, you expect a place to stay where you can feel at home. Vivant - Connemara, is one of the few where i would not think twice of checking-in when it comes to customer service and hospitality and a comfortable stay. Good food, good service, centrally located (i think so..), good people and a... More

I stayed at the hotel for work in late November 2014. This hotel is quiet with just one pool and its own big private beach. The rooms were spacious and clean and very high tech- I struggled to work out the lighting! The service was also fantastic.Breakfast was very good with a great selection of Indian and continental breakfast choices.... More

Compared to the other Taj properties, this is a slightly smaller property. But its quaint and subtle elegance is what makes it stand apart. The service is quintessential Taj and definitely a place to go back to. Loved the spa and the swimming pool. The food menu at Raintree as well as the Verandah was quite decent. And smoked salmon...

Very centrally located old generation hotel with all modern amenities. This hotel has been there even before other hotels started coming in. Very comfortable rooms, good service and good food. Pool area is a good attraction. Good for stay,meetings and business lunches on the go.

The delicate balance of presenting a top-quality hotel whilst retaining old-world heritage charm has been sensitively achieved. There is a strong sense of the original building and an awareness not to over-restore. The pool area is great and so peaceful. Service perfect. Food excellent. Unfortunately due to some problem my (direct internet) booking could not be found. This is not... More
