I have stayed in New Woodlands a few times and this time I stayed for 4 days in the newer rooms. The room was good and the restaurants in the Hotel - Brindavan and Krishna - served pretty decent food. And fairly priced. But two things disappointed us: The hotel staff tend to hang around waiting for gratuity (tips) which... More

I stayed in this place for a single night and was quite disappointed. Room access is bad - you have to walk past parking, wedding hall etc and these are generally noisy and crowded. Food is average - used to be excellent.

Worst serviced hotel in chennai worst food worst service except room cleaners worst internet wifi connection its wil keep on disconnect and you need to call reception every time to get new password. And the receptionist will tell you to get mobile and laptop to reception. They will not send any service people to help room guests. Totally Junk

Western Tourists may find this Hotel a little uncomfortable. While the rooms are well appointed, the location of the accommodation units is rather poor. The rooms are behind the car park and the area does not seem clean. The steps leading to the rooms are also poorly lit up and rather dirty. Also the constant noise from the movement of... More

The hotel is separated from the street by a wall so it is kind of like a small complex and very safe. There are two restaurants on premise. One serve s... More
