“Outstanding Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I stayed here for two nights this April and was blown away. I ate at Southern Spice, Anise and Golden Dragon and all were terrific. The gym, pool and health club were all beautiful. The rooms were very well appointed with plush king beds, digital controls for the room and one of the best showers I've ever used (rain shower, hand shower and four wall jets). The best part was the service, which was the best I've ever experienced. Someone was always on hand to assist with whatever I needed. The ratio of employees to guests is very high and all are constantly asking if they can assist. Everything was outstanding and I will stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view. Much nicer view and cooler rooms.

Well any hotel can be judged by 3 things
1- Service- 8/10
2-Property- 7/10
3- location -10/10

Service of Taj is quite exciting and rooms are adequately spacious giving you a home feel with hotel installing 5.1 speakers in the rooms makes your stay more entertaining. Speakers are quite fine.

Staff is very supportive i met some good ppl at the butlers and its really good...

Room Tip: Rooms at 2nd floor and 6 floor are quite good.

I stayed at the Taj recently, i havepreviously stayed at the Taj at GW of India and Taj Vivanta Bangalore and man there is such a let down considering Taj Coromandel.

We were facing issues related to Air Conditioning for 2 out of 3 days we stayed.

We had a power outage in the early morning for about 60 minutes and had to call in thrice before someone responded and rectified the same.

The beds were clumsy , the pillows had an uneven shape.

I guess we were given the most messed up room.

Few of the people at the Guest Services were a tad obnoxious over the phone, got a feeling that hey you know what we are Taj.. you are staying in a cheap room buzz off !!!

Billing :- Firstly they created a bill with about 8k extra , On checkout they forgot to add service tax for the room and i get a call 35 minutes later that sir we forgot to add and we shall bill you, very unprofessional.

All in all i didnt get the feel of hospitality and warmth that people raved about this hotel

Good Points

Amazing Breakfast Spread
Amazing IN Room Dining Service and Food.
The in House Oriental food hotel was fantastic Five Thumbs Up!!!

I had my company paying for this and after the experience, next time in Chennai if i have to pay from my pocket or my company I wouldnt contemplate staying here.

Dear Mr Niket Shah,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your recent stay at Taj Coromandel. I am very disappointed to note the incidents which have caused an inconvenience to you during your stay at the Hotel. Due to unexpected technical breakdown, we were unable to address your concern regarding air-conditioning immediately. We have taken up your grievances with the respective teams and would like to assure you that your concerns will be certainly addressed. We assure you of improvement in all aspects for your future visits to our Hotel.

It is very kind of you to also highlight your positive experiences including breakfast at Anise – the all-day diner, in-room dining and service as well as your meal experience at Golden Dragon – the authentic Cantonese and Sichuan cuisine restaurant. We hope that you will be able to dine with us at the newly-renovated Southern Spice, the iconic south Indian cuisine restaurant, during your next visit to Chennai.

Look forward to welcoming you back to Taj Coromandel.

Kindest regards,
N Prakash

I am currently in Chennai on a business trip and decided to stay at the Taj based on the reputation of the "Taj" brand...

Upon arrival, I was quite pleased with the pick-up service from the airport and the welcome to the hotel including Indian blessing, bells and whistles, like a superstar... then when they whisked me to my room I was truly underwhelmed... I was placed on the 6th floor, which has the same decor as perhaps when they opened the hotel back in the 70s or 80s... the room is big and comfortable, but really really old decor... the furniture is in good shape, bed is comfortable, linens and pillows are really good, everything works and the room is clean and inviting, but you know, the bathroom looks really really dated as well as the decor in general... on the plus side, they gave me access to the lounge, where I can have breakfast or nibbles in the afternoon (great treat and amazing food...)...

However, little by little the hotel has grown on me... the service is truly outstanding, everyone is so nice and make you feel like they truly care about you.. the common areas are all renovated (except for the basement floor) and feel plush, luxurious and expensive...

The gym is brand new and quite well equipped.. the pool and outdoor area is quite nice and pleasant...

The food at the main restaurant, Anise, is truly outstanding! for breakfast a huge display of western and Indian specialties and dinner is same theme, with different dishes, all of them really good...

Note that there are also renovated floors (the lower ones), not sure if those are more expensive than mine, so perhaps that's an option...

Overall, a pleasant experience... if I had stayed in a renovated room, most likely i would give a 5* rating, but because of the room I am only giving 4, but service and food is definitely a 5*... definitely on the same league as other Indian luxury hotels such as Oberoi or Trident...

Room Tip: If possible, request a renovated room...

The hotel was very nice and the staff was extremely courteous. Nothing was missing and they took a personal interest in my likes and dislikes. Everything was organized well and the restaurants are very nice. Chipstead is a good bar and one must go there.
