I've stayed at this property a good number of times whenever I travel with my parents to Chennai. This time around, we decided to stay 6 days in Chennai, so Woodlands gave a pretty good deal on the cottage rooms. I stayed here from New Year's Day (January 1) - January 6th night while my dad stayed til the 7th...

You can get the best vegetarian food over here. They have banquet Hall for wedding events and reception. At a time in around 1940s,Queen of England visited this hotel and had food. You can find the large picture in Manager's cabin.

The best thing about the New Woodlands is its location and the on-site Krishna restaurant. The single rooms are basic but comfortable, the balcony is a small perk, and the addition of electronic safes and free Wi-Fi is welcome. The Wi-Fi can be a little slow during the day but it worked better late at night. Room service is surprisingly...

Go early if you do not want to be kept waiting. There is always a crowd. We had a South Indian thali. Good value for money. Service is fast. Their filter coffee is also very good. Ample parking within the premises.

Another review after a couple more stays. We'll keep staying here, for the breakfasts and for pure nostalgia. Woodlands is a block from the Music Academy and thus great for the music season. It's safe and dependable. Things you should know, though: (1) wifi is flaky, weak, and bureaucratic. If you need reliable connectivity this is not your hotel. (If...

This is an iconic restaurant for South Indian vegetarian food. There is a wide variety of dishes. The restaurant is quite large, with several interconnected halls. Yet it was quite full on a weekday afternoon. The staff got us a table for six after a short time, while we sat inside near the entrance. We enjoyed our food -- South...

It is an old-world hotel modernized in parts. Rooms are comfortable. In-house restaurants are good and offer mostly South Indian food. Its USP is its proximity to Madras Music academy with a few steps by walk. They were nice in keeping my deposit active for a year old reservation and promptly applying for my current stay. Easy to interact with...

I would give this an overall rating of 3.5 if I could. Location is central, and the two in-house restaurants are good, the Krishna restaurant seems to be the more popular one. The breakfast buffet is served in the Vrindavan restaurant with the usual South Indian staples of idli, vada,uthappam, sevai or upma, plus puris. You can also get corn...

This is one good restaurant that is located in heart of the city with ample car parking space. Two restaurants within one campus. Food is extremely good. One south indian restaurant and the other is the north indian restaurant. Taste in both the restaurants are unique. My all time favorite here is Idli with spicy chuttney. My taste buds starts...
