Rooms are very spacious (but could be brighter and airier) as is the campus. The quaint old building is generally well-maintained although a paint job wouldn't hurt! Service staff are polite and the attached restaurant serves tasty traditional South Indian food (even a carnivore like myself couldn't complain!)

New Woodlands is more like a small housing colony with only 3/4 storeyed buildings. Lots of space to saunter. Lots of trees. All in all, this hotel makes you feel you ARE at home. Plus the fact that its bang in the center of the city. The food is not hi brow, but its certainly clean and authentic Chennai. Their... More

Stayed at this hotle for coiple of days primiarily because I was not getting a room anywhere else in Chennai on my travel dates. Was a bit apprehensive, but in the end the overall experience turned out to be better than expected. One could look at this hotel if you're on a budget and want a hotel located centrally. The...

The best is New Woodlands Hotel is located in the Heart of the Chennai city and all the Sight Seeing places are located nearby. It is close to Marina Beach just a short 10 minute drive from the Lighthouse side. Neat, well maintained rooms with clean amenities

I have been staying in this hotel for many years now, but the service is going from bad to worst. They are mainly overstaffed and average age is around 50 years. They have been working since long and not updated with the current trend in hospitality industry. I recently stayed between 11th and 13th February 2015 on a business trip... More

I enjoyed having my lunch in Woodlands hotel. The authenticate south indian food is now in quite moderate rate and the quality is excellent. I specially like the carrot halwa a lot in woodlands. The ambiance is also nice. I would suggest this place for a good Sunday heavy lunch.

When I was hunting for a reasonable property in Chennai to stay with a multicuisine restaurant, I was suggested this one and it was truly worth every penny I spent. Great place to stay and wonderful food. Hospitality is equally good here.

The New Woodlands is my preferred place to stay in Chennai/Madras. The many buildings in its big compound give it a special feel. The veg only restaurant is one among the best in the city. There is also a Saravana Bhavan/South Indian chain of high quality veg restaurants nearby, in case you prefer that (esp for fruit juices, and Dosai).... More

Neat, well maintained rooms with clean amenities, toiletries and great service, this is the best place to stay in Chennai. For vegetarians, this is a paradise considering the high quality food available although its a bit high on price. The only downside may be is the crowd which throngs the marriage halls since this place is quite popular for conducting... More
