We got a room here at midday for a 12 hour stint before leaving for the airport. Having said that we were given the most enormous of rooms overlooking the pool. We had intentions to use the pool but fell asleep on the giant kingsized bed. Managed two meals in the 'coffee bar' restaurant - lunch and dinner. No problems... More

Stayed in the last week of Feb. 2015. Nice lobby and the ambience has a vintage feel. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The bathroom is well equipped. The swimming pool too is decent. The rooms are quiet despite being in the heart of the city. Marina Beach and Central railway station are in vicinity. The breakfast spread not... More

When I check out, if the staff ask me for suggestions for improvement, I would say there is nothing that could be improved. The rooms are quirky but airy and pleasant with large bathrooms and good a/c. The bathrooms are well equipped with bath and shower. The pool is perfect, with comfortable beds, umbrellas and clean water. The lobby and... More

Enjoyed a couple of nights in the Connemara at the beginning of a 3 week tour of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Goa. Very comfortable and well appointed rooms, extremely welcome after a long flight and a whole day travelling. Staff helpful and friendly, food good and other good eateries within easy reach. Pleasantly colonial feel has been sustained, lots of... More

We stayed here last year at the end of our visit to Tamil Nadu and this lovely old hotel with fully mod cons and conveniences doesn't disappoint as befitting of a Taj Group associated hotel.

I was for a lecture at this hotel. The drive from the airport is long but I had landed early morning so the traffic was less. The checkin took some time as there was a mis communication but the front desk executive was very helpful and made me comfortable. This is an old property but well maintained.I had stayed here...

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.
