We had selected the Connemara on the strength of its TripAdvisor ratings and these have been amply justified. The Connemara is a model hotel, exactly what any good hotel should be. Of course, one expects this of the Taj Group. Everything about the hotel was just right and it is difficult to find fault with anything. Stay there!

We have stayed at the Taj Connemara to get the best of the city and be able to visit friends. The hotel is great and the service is second to none. With the weather being too hot on some days, the hotel had everything we needed. Peace in beautiful surroundings, with staff who couldnt do enough to ensure that we were comfortable and well cared for. The attention to detail was what impressed us most.

We stayed in a garden room whoch opened to a beautiful and colourful garden when you steppen out. It was like a walk through paradise to get to your room. You would never guess that you were in the middle of a busy noisy city.

The outdoor raintree restaurant provided all the romance we wanted, with a great atmosphere, exccellent food and great service.

The pool is lovely, perfect for a swim in the evenings to build up an appetite for the delights of the restaurants.

Shopping was just 2 minutes walk from the hotel. The staff were extremely useful in pointing out locations and addresses for exactly what we wanted.

Overall, an excellent hotel in the middle of a busy city.

The name Connemera evokes old memories and nostalgia in Chennai visitors. Said to be the house of a ruler, this well preserved hotel is in the heart of the City. You enter a large lobby with an ancient brass lamp salvor and on to your right, a beautiful bronze! The grand staircase is there from time immemorial and so is the Banyan tree.
Every nook and corner of the hotel emanates soothing fragrance due to the aromatic oil lamps placed.
Rooms are well appointed with plush beds and carpeting. The quality of the bath room supplies is good. The bath room is four station one - means one tub and one shower stall. The Linen quality is just OK.
The complimentary fruit platter is a welcome addition and so is the provision of the drinking water. The in room dining menu is exhaustive with a section devoted to slightly indisposed business traveler! Room service is good and portions are fine.
I must say that thier saloon services are very good and are value for money.
Coming to the food / restaurants, keep away from the buffet sections - the chef doesnt seem to have control on his staff or visitng pests too.. I have found one cook tasting the gravy he is making and putting the spoon straigth back!! I found roaches in the bread basket and behind the counters - If you are looking for good time, instead fo for the main restaurent!
I recommend this hotel if you want to relax on a week end in this ancient city and to unwind in the shaded pool with a chilled beverage!
Good value for money, location.
