“Pleasing stay”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We stayed here three nights recently as guests at a wedding function.

The resort is located a block away from the beach at Pallavakkam on the ECR, about 30-40min drive from the Chennai Airport.

The hotel is laid out in a sprawling property with lush green lawns, a decent sized swimming pool with water slide, small restaurant and separate bar. Our room was in a heritage style wooden Kerala cottage overlooking a small garden with a resident flock of babbling babblers, squirrels and some rather friendly cats! Sitting in the verandah, it was hard to believe that this was not a peaceful rural setting. The city of Chennai seemed light years away.

Back to reality:
The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, if dimly lit. Regular style rooms are well lit though lack the ambiance of the wooden cottages.

The menu was mostly Kerala cuisine, tasty and served in good portions. Best to eat at the restaurant where though slow, the service was certainly faster than in the room.

Room service was tardy and housekeeping was most lackadaisical. No one bothered to clear a dirty dish kept out on the balcony the previous evening; I saw the cats having a go, no wonder they were so friendly! The same dishes were uncleared even the next day. Housekeeping was not enthusiastic about daily cleaning of the room though they provided a new set of towels.

For the room rate, the least the hotel could do would be to provide a kettle in the room for tea and coffee. Room service took an hour to bring the morning coffee the first day. On the second day, they were better organised and came around early with the coffee.

This is a good venue to host functions such as weddings with adequate space and greenery. The weather in December is perfect for such events.

Children have plenty of place to run around and the water slide in the pool is a big attraction making it a good place for a family weekend place so near yet so far from the crowded city ..........

Overall efficiency of service could be improved but with a bit of attention, this hotel has a lot of potential.

Room Tip: Choose the wood Kerala cottages nearer the pool.

On first glance it will transport you to another world with its quaint wooden cottages and aesthetic interiors. Spend a couple of hours and the reality sinks in. There is absolutely no room service to speak of coz you cant contact them. The phones are just decorative pieces! The food served is stale, greasy and the place is just plain noisy thanks to the crows who feast on leftovers of the night before. The property is unkept, dirty, unsafe and dangerous all thanks to riff-raff and ruffians who have free access to the grounds because of no concrete boundary wall. Please avoid and if left with no choice sleep in your car or in the rallway station.

A good property but poorly managed. Bad service. Property is rented out for marriage function and loud music is played. Guests indulge in crazy acts that will drive u out early in the morning. A horrible night for all of us, we ain't forgetting this stay for a long time to come.if don't have a choice to stay don't even think of staying at this place.

Located in the city, this resort is quite and spacious - offering little clue that the bustling city roads are less than a km away.

I went as part of a corporate retreat for 2 days and 1 night with 40+colleagues. The lunch and dinner was great - tasty and had some variety. Breakfast was standard and although nothing to rave about, it was good.

The rooms were nice, except for the one I slept in at the far end of the property by the pool - please avoid, avoid, avoid this room. Also, there is no running hot water anywhere and the towels and bedsheets were not really very clean. No drinking water was provided too - at the prices they charged my company, this was really a cheap thing to do (or not do).

Although it is close to the beach, it is not connected to it directly. You have to walk about 300m from the property to get there. Avoid the mornings as the locals pile up on the beach for their morning constitutionals and it is not a sight for morning eyes.

Why I may not recommend this to others? Customer service is very poor.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the restaurant (e.g. 119-123)

Had my 50th b'day party here and what a great time we had, the food was excellent thanks to the head chef Matthew who couldn't do enough to make sure even things went as smooth as possible, even helping take orders and serving the food. The food was first class. Sue was a great host and ensured as a whole the evening was a great success and nothing was too much trouble and even organsied beautiful cake.

Thanks everyone at Green Meadows

Had a pathetic experience in Green Meadows Chennai resort. I stayed there just for a day and how happy I was that it was a short one! Here are some facts:

1. Torn towels & towels with ants!
2. Phone in the room not working
3. No hot water in the toilet
4. Bedsheets not changed and were dirty
5. No drinking water was provided in the room
6. No hand towels near the wash basin
7. The receptionist/supervisor was absolutely not apologetic even after all the above inconvenience.
8. This is probably not even a 1 star hotel/resort.
9. Extremely poor maintenance
10. Service is very poor

Definitely not worth the money spent. At 3600 INR a day you will get much decent hotels. I absolutely do not recommend this to anyone. May be a bad day for the hotel or whatever, but who cares. The frustrating part was the attitude of the hotel supervisor in the daytime, who didnt even apologize for the incovenience. The night time supervisor was better.

Room Tip: I dont recommend any rooms after my experience & attitude of the hotel staff. Stay away , not wo...
