The air conditioner is a 40 year old model, very noisy, cannot control temp. No proper bathroom amenities like shampoo / soap (they gave a cheap shampoo sachet and a sample soap, which is normally served in a very small lodge), no daily housekeeping routine (unless asked for), no support from staff - presumably controlled by Management (for everything, they...

Had a good experience at the New Woodlands Hotel, we were in town for a wedding that was a 4 minute ride from the hotel so very convenient location for us. Couple things to note: - no irons/ironing boards in the room, not sure if this is a standard for Chennai but I had to "steam" my dress in the...

We go here very often for small business meetings and friends catch-up. The place is veg and has a quite a large menu. Try the curd vadai and bajjies in the evenings. Good coffee available. It's in the centre of the city and easy to reach. Good car park available but sometime it's gets too full, not sure if they...

For authentic South Indian Vegetarian dishes, Krishna Restaurant is famous and well known to us. However, there is another restaurant here, called TANJORE RESTAURANT, only for lunch. The original Tanjore Plantain Leaf Meals is served at 11-30 AM. They serve rice, sambar, kootu, poriyal, south Indian dhal, rasam, pachidi, appalam, vatha kolambu, pickle, curd, banana and beeda. On demand, we...

Had stayed at this hotel for a day. 10mins away from marina beach, other markets are closer too. Airport is pretty far from this hotel..about 45-50mins of travel by a private car. Staff is helpful. Rooms are old style but clean. It has a free buffet but it was ordinary. You get better options in Chennai. Overall value for money.

For Chennai, this hotel is well located for Marina Beach and Fort St. George. The decor is tatty but the beds and towels are clear. It represents value for money in Chennai. The best thing though is the food. Both the cafe and the restaurant are excellent. Beware however, the hotel is 'dry'. If you need a beer, salvation isn't...

I went to New Woodlands and stayed for two nights, it's in a good location in Chennai, the rooms being spacious and clean and are supplied with Sky TV , but one thing about this hotel that makes it an outstanding stay. That stand out being the food, for it is truly exquisite and it doesn't matter which of the...

There's nothing new in New Woodlands Hotel... it's plainly old (without any old world's charm) Booked the top end room... in the rooms category, not the cottage and the tariff was arnd 3800 to 4000 per night. When I pay an amount of Rs. 4000 for a room, I expect it to be a bit well kept and better accessorised....

Was very disappointed. Too expensive for what it actually is. We booked the hotel for the pool cause we wanted to have some place to relax after a hot day. You have to actually PAY for the pool!!!! Per hour!!! Even being a guest, they make you pay. Have never seen that anywhere and was so shocked. Plus nobody mentioned...
