I had occasions to stay in Taj group of Hotels at several locations. During the period from 23-Feb-2014 to 25-Feb-2014 and from 19-May-2014 to 21-May-2014 I had stayed in Taj Connemera, Chenai. While this hotel could be considered as one of the finest hotels, Taj Mansingh, New Delhi and Taj Krishna, Hyderabad, could be rated as better ones within the... More

I always like staying at Taj properties. This time stayed for 2 nights at Taj Connemara. Comfortable stay, pleasant staff. Breakfast at Verandah is truly enjoyable, both for its ambience and the food. Over looking the pool. A good spread. One can easily spend an hour + having a leisurely breakfast if you have the time. Unfortunately I was on... More

We spent three nights here and enjoyed the hotel as a relaxing base from which to visit other parts of the city. Service was excellent, all staff were very friendly and helpful and food options and quality was great. The swimming pool and its surrounds make a great and tranquil place to chill out and the spa and gym facilities... More

Liked this hotel a lot! As others have posted, it's an historic hotel which adds to the overall experience. It is well suited for either a business or leisure visit. Mine was for business, but did hit the pool which was great. The service is outstanding in all respects. From room service, reception staff, and restaurants everyone was friendly and... More

In a word, faultless. Have a dip and a cocktail in the poolside gardens or a quality wine in the foyer bar while you decide which of eight or so restaurants you will choose for dinner. Tip: Southern Spice (South Indian fine dining) is outstanding. I highly recommend this very professional hotel.

Stayed here for nearly all of March 2015. Very good property, hospitable and accommodating staff. Chef will accede to all your petty requests as far as food is concerned. I was given an upgraded room for some reason - which made it better.

Located in an old Colonial building, the hotel exudes old world charm. The Verandah and the Raintree restaurants serve excellent fare. Rooms are spacious and tastefully embellished. The staff is eager to help and cheerful.
