“Nice but could be better...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

During our travels to the south, my friend and I had the opportunity to stay at Grand Gardenia, Trichy not one but for three days.
Though it is located a few kilometres out of town, but one can still hear the flow of traffic as it is at located at a 'by-pass' or highway but surprisingly one could only hear the occasional hooting and honking ...a bless in disguise it is.
The staff were more than willing to make the stay a comfortrable and memorable one. One of the bell boys even assisted in weighing our so heavy bags!!! It was done so that my friend and I could gauge the weight ... just in case we were carrying more than the allocated weight. We were actually bound to fly back to Malaysia.
The was shuttle service offered by the hotel at a minimal price ...way much cheaper than the autos and call taxis.
The free breakfast buffet offered at its rooftop restaurant is simply marvellous.The view is simply awesome.
One should not miss the meals at its adjoining Kannapa reasturant...not only is the food superb but the service offered by its ever smiling army of waiters is always something I look forward to.
Hope that I could once again set foot in Trichy to re-experience all this!!!
Thank you.

I am a native of Trichy, but have been in USA for the past 42 years. For years, I have stayed at Sangam, the supposedly the premier hotel in Trichy and till about 6 years ago, I enjoyed staying there. But, looks like the hotel management figured that they really do not need to cater to the local clients, much less to the unsuspecting foreigners, as they were the only 3 star in town - I was the beneficiary (!) of this policy the last couple of times I stayed there.

So last time I stayed at Jenny's Residency, which was good. However, they are located near the bus stand and traffic, which created a lot of nose.

I decided to take the Trip Advisor recommendation this time and stayed at the Grand Gardenia. The room was clean. But being from the west, I really appreciated the shower stall (not integrated in to a bath tub), with an enclosure and a nice shower head/water temperature to boot. They also deliver the local copy of the English news paper.

The breakfast was included, at the roof stop, with both being in an air conditioned enclosure or a space open to elements but to the scenerey of Trichy is available.

If you are from South India, you will appreciate the breakfast fair, as the free breakfast is dominated by the ethnic fare, but, they also offer some dishes such us cereals, eggs, french toasts, pancakes and pastries to the western palate, but, in my opinion, these are just very ordinary.

There is a bar attached and so you can order room service based on their stock.

There is also a style of (chettinadu) non veg restaurant attached, which seems to be busy all the time.

There are also smoking and non-smoking rooms available.

Internet access is also free.

There have been a few glitches, but these have been resolved very quickly.

If you want a good stay at reasonable prices and a good service, then this is it.

8 of us Stayed for a night in Grand gardenia.It is a Very good property with clean rooms.Loved their airconditioning really kept us cool in May. Dont forget to check out the roof top restaurant has great views of the nearby roundabout and fly over at nights. Also try the Kannappa chicken if u like spicy food.If u are a non Tamilian u have to visit the kannappa restaurant downstairs during peak hours it is so busy with all kinds of folks u get to see a mini tamilnadu in it .If u dont mind a bit of buzz around it is the place to have food.

I was booked into this hotel for a short business visit to Trichy. A few images on their website did not give a very impressive picture of the hotel. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I reached there. The lady at the reception was quite courteous and helped with a quick check-in. The room was spacious and comfortable too. The breakfast had a nice touch with a sweet dish and tasted good.

The only gripe was the menu for in-room dining. A very small list and they did not have most of the items that were asked for from it. Also for most of the request, they had to cal back and confirm. Though they have a famous restaurant downstairs, it is not everytime that you want to get out of the room to for dinner! If thats taken care of, it can be a very good place to stay.

Overall had a pleasant stay at Grand Gardenia and would definitely staying there for subsequent visits.
