Wonderful Place, A Wonderful location.. Great Rooms, Excellent Atmosphere..Stayed for 3 nights in room 53 (Executive room) with mother between 14th & 17th Aug'12, Situated atop a hill, very huge area, with great views to the city side (meenakshi temple) & murugan temple on the other...Had nice view of the meenakshi temple & city side from my room.. Dont be surprised to see peacocks around your rooms more often than not..around 300 peacocks seem to be there in the location...a large amount of the area of the hotel is still a road less travelled..Great surroundings..lot of greenery which is pleasent to the eyes...Makes you forget that you staying in a city..
Had a slightly delayed check in, but there on; the room upgrades due to the package booking for the stay, the people at service (Ansari at the reception during check-in, the people at the GAD restaurant Murali, Praveen, Nagarajan, Ramesh & to the chefs, Ranjitha while check-out)..great people at work who make u feel more homely,comfortable.. great work people,, hats off...Thank you all, everyone at the hotel, for making it a memorable stay for us..Truly a Taj
One discomforting factor is the mobile connectivity in most of the rooms, it gets disconnected frequently..
Food Options at the GAD were really good, great taste, nice choices..very neat spread of options during the buffet breakfast & buffet dinner..the lunch was a a-la carte..
Will definitely recommend to everyone for the place, the value for money, the people..Excellent Hotel ! !
