London, United Kingdom7 contributions12 helpful votes
I recently stayed in this hotel and it turned out to be the worst hotel experience. - The cleaning and hygiene levels in the overall hotel and the rooms need to be improved. Our room wasn't even cleaned until we chased them for it. The cleaning quality was not good with lot of dust in the room and the toilets were so dirty. - The front desk staff need training. They gave us the wrong bill in the first place. We asked for Innova to drop us at the airport and we see a smaller car waiting for us - This after we repeatedly told them we need a bigger car for our luggage. We set up a wake up call and they forgot to call us - Thank god we also kept our phone alarm otherwise we would have missed our flight for sure - In room dining - Lack of customer service in this team. Our coffee orders would take more than 30 mins to be delivered. The food quality was OK. Good spread for breakfast but lunch and dinner quality wasn't up to the mark. Overall this is not a 5 star hotel - Lot of improvements needed and they should start with training their staff!!

Dear Purnima, We would like to thank you for choosing our hotel as your accommodation choice during your visit to Chennai. Thank you for taking the time out to inform us of the difficulties you have encountered during your stay with us. It is unfortunate to learn you did not enjoy your stay to the fullest with us at Novotel. This is definitely not the genuinely caring and personalized attention we pride ourselves for providing and which we are known for. Your feedback has been duly noted by us, and rest assured it will be taken up with the concerned department and addressed suitably. Conscious that our explanations would not be able to erase the unsatisfying experience you have been through, we truly hope you will give us another chance to demonstrate our true hospitality which we are known for. Warm Regards, Rayan A

I am a business traveller and this is my first visit to Novotel Chennai. Though I have stayed in other Novotel hotels across India and being an Accor Gold member,I was quite unhappy with my experience at OMR Chennai facility. There is no doubt about their facilities, housekeeping and quality of food. This 2-star, I am giving only for their poor front office service. My stay+food+office transfer goes in BTC. I usually avoid taking buffet dinner due to its wide spread and heavy. I prefer to have simple menu from alacarte, moreover it is cheaper than buffet bill. They have a strange policy, only if the guest take buffet dinner,its been included in BTC otherwise the guest need to pay. This sounds very illogical. The guest should a choice and personal preference. Many business class hotel,I have stayed across India with similar star category, nowhere they have this strange policy. Even if I order food from room, the food bill need to be included in BTC. The front office staff is unprofessional, junior level (Karthik) and took very long time to process my check-out. All though every aspect of my stay was great with Novotel, due to poor check out experience, I have decided not to visit OMR facility again.

Though my stay with Novotel Chennai OMR was just for a day I was pretty impressed with some of the things at the hotel. The staff especially Mr.Adithya was very calm and attentive to all the customers and not just me. The in room dining was damn excellent. The room was very well maintained and I felt very comfortable. Here are some of the problems in the hotel: 1. The reception desk was very irresponsible. They never pick your calls on time and they never bother to return the call back or record your concerns. 2. The check in process was very confusing. No process followed at all. Only foreign customers were treated with respect. Others like us are made to wait and wonder what is going on. 3. The in-room television set top box was very poor in quality. When I stayed for a day I had to call for set top box service twice. I didn't expect this from a reputed hotel like Novotel. 4. I expected a bit more variety in the food (breakfast & dinner) that is served as part of the package deal. Other than these, I enjoyed my stay there and look forward to stay again very soon! Continue the good work you have been doing so far!

A vibrant, lively hotel! This was our first impression of it within minutes upon arrival at the lobby. You will see some fun game space next to the lobby and even some high chairs by the along with loungers. The hotel boasts 3 acres of greenery making up for the urban resort concept. The rooms are very similar to Novotel SIPCOT rooms. The rooms are contemporary with all the modern amenities. Only it didn’t have any view from the room. However it overlooked the pool and I was quite happy with that too! We had an Easter Brunch during our stay at the hotel it was easoly one of the most elaborate brunches ! Later we also had a look at their gorgeous bar – NICO Asian Bar & Café ! Loved the colors and the overall theme. Looked very ‘Plum and Bent Chair’ with their overall Purple and hues of pinks around. We tried a couple of mocktails at the bar. As we had an evening out with friends, we came back and thought of getting ourselves some room service. Novotel is among the only few hotels in Chennai that provide 24x7 room service. Chef dished out delicious Egg biryani with vegetable raita on the side along with some pickle and lime. My husband had an earlier flight so the team very kindly sent a packed breakfast to our room. It was very thoughtful of them. This pet-friendly hotel is suitable for all types of travelers.

This is one of the best Novotel hotel of Accor in India. Hotel has used space appropriately so that guest with kids can play table tennis and enjoy other sports. I like Sony play station game box at lobby area. Food is delicious and staff are professionally trained. They are always willing to serve. They somehow anticipate your needs in advance. Terrace pool helps you to unwind. View from the room is amazing. I would highly recommend this hotel to my family and friends and always prefer to stay in this Hotel.

Most of the hotels today serve good food but more than the taste or choices it's the service that counts. My husband and I are both doctors, we dropped in one afternoon late at 3:00pm after a long day at work, tired; they were just closing their buffet lunch service, without hesitation they served us, special mention to mr.Sounthar who made sure we were not left wanting. The other staff too were very helpful, young, all smiles, no fuss. We could see they too were tired, standing in attention through the duration of lunch service, yet they made us feel at home - not easy to come by that feeling of satisfaction and comfort. I will definitely recommend Novotel without hesitation
