    Loved our stay at the Connemara...The service is excellent and the rooms were lovely. We had to visit VFS for our visas and we chose the Connemara as it is literally next door. Would recommend the Connemara for people who have to visit VFS.

    Location, Service

    This hotel needs a complete refurbishing of rooms.Even as a Heritage hotel the rooms are not up to a 5 stars hotel standard: dated furniture, crappy bathroom with out of age furniture Cleanliness of bathroom not to top either. There are much better and cheaper hotels in Chennai (Radisson Blu, Raintree, ...)

    Connemara Charm”

    The breakfast buffet, the oasis feeling poolside and the hotel staff efficiency and freindleness

    I have stayed many times at the Connemara - now known as the Vivant by Taj - Connemara... but this visit was the longest, staying for 9 nights. This hotel is my home in Chennai delivering a tropical oasis in the heart of a very hectic and not so pretty city. The architecture and furnishing exudes old world charm without the stuffiness of other five star hotels. The staff are efficient and helpful. The buffet breakfast and an afternoon, early evening or morning swim were my hotel highlights along with many happy memories of past visits. I will be staying here again...

    Excellent in every way”

    Room quality, staff service, dining experience

    Our experience was everything we had expected from a 5-star hotel and more. As a family travelling with children we were given two inter-connecting rooms of first-class quality with all facilities. When the children were bored the staff very kindly directed us to an outside area to play and even provided them with some outdoor games equipment to use. We particularly enjoyed the Hip Asia pan-Asian restaurant with its really delicious food and good ambience. The breakfasts at the Verandah were amazing too. Staff were always helpful and polite. In fact, when I forgot some important papers in the room safe, the staff contacted me and forwarded the items to our next destination by courier. All-in-all definitely a 5-star experience at a very reasonable price.
