            One of the worst hotel and staff management!!!”

            It was a horrible experience. The staff members had no courtesy including the executive reservationists when an amendment was needed on the booking voucher.They force themselves to speak in butler English even though I was ready to talk to them in native language to ease the communication. Their English proficiency was awful. The room was smelly and bathroom was very dirty. The bath tub was in horrible condition when I entered the room. The bath towels provided must have been purchased when they inaugurated the hotel many years ago. They were supposed to white towels , but turned out to be grey towels.

            Location, price , comfort

            A very good experience beyond expectation as I was considering it a sort of night pass budget hotel. Only thing is that I was wondering why management/ owners take some good Artitech or interior desisnor profession advice to change a little bit exterior and interior with a very little money. Color scheme chosen depict very poor taste. Its structure can well be kept as such but with a little imagination , it can really look like a heritage hotel. Hope some one from management would read and acknowledge .

            Dignified. elegant, grand lobby, spotlessly clean, very good service, good vastu, easy to find, feels like 5-star

            This hotel is a delight. Coming in from busy, noisy Chennai city, it is a welcome refuge of calm and order. Very high quality with one exception- the laundry service was poor. Would highly recommend this hotel.

            Good spa, restaurant open until 10 pm, room service 24 hours.

            Nice place. Stately lobby with good door service. Nicely decorated clean room with good air and comfortable bed. I did see two roaches during my 48 hour stay, but they were looking pretty sedate and I doubt they survived the night. (I would recommend a bait rather than poison to get rid of that problem for good.) A massage at the spa was a nice treat, and I would stay here again.

            Location

            everything about this hotel was very acceptable for me during my stay! very courteous staff and pleasant ambience was is an added bonus. my stay was short but nothing big to complain about. there were two things that frustrated me during the stay. 1. the receptionist did not understand that when a room is booked for 2 adults it means that there will be 2 people staying in the room and also 2 people for the complimentary breakfast. though they did not ask me to pay for the 2nd person, they seemed very confused about it because one of the receptionists was expecting the names of all the people who will stay on the receipt!! took him about a day and half to get clear on this…but not sure if he actually understood it 2. the internet, as mentioned in the website is not available in the room. it’s available only in the one computer present in the ground floor restaurant. it will be kind of embarrassing to sit in a restaurant for browsing while others are having dinner. other than this, i would say it's a nice place..good value for money..breakfast was okay! good variety was available..taste was acceptable but could be better for their standards!! they have a gym as well..i could not comment on it as i did not use it. pretty close to the airport and flexible checkin/out is an added convenience!!

            The room was perfect and the food was good. Will recommend for short stays and business visits. Only con was that the hotel reception didn't know how to handle the Agoda Voucher. Was a little irritating as it took a long time to sort it out.
