    Oasis
    on Nov 16, 2017
    We stayed here on our very first few nights in India... felt like a safe little oasis to retreat too when outside was too much. Staff were friendly and helpful, waited up for us when we arrived at 1am. Were also full of recommendations for food places nearby, all of which were great. Our room was huge and colourful. We were recommended to stay here from a friends mum who stayed in the 80s and we were not disappointed! The place has loads of character, bit run down and ramshackle but that added to the magic for us. The courtyard is really the highlight, full of plants and huge fully grown trees. Pretty well located too and really affordable. Highly recommend if you aren’t worried about luxury and are looking for more of an authentic place ... More

    This place looks like an old colonial home. And it actually is one. The decor is classic which I loved. The atmosphere is very good. The people here are also nice. Staying in this hotel in the middle of the busy city was relaxing.... More

    An aulthentic colonial oasis in the middle of Chennai
    on Oct 25, 2017
    The only place to stay in Chennai. Basic Indian standard, but in authentic colonial style. A rabbit warren of rooms, staircases, courtyards, terraces, and rooftops. Views of city and nearby mosque unparalleled.... More

    I still rate it very good, although the area has gone to the dogs

    Broadlands needs no recommendation. Those who love it return again and again, despite its clinging to the old ways, which many young travellers would find distasteful these days. The atmosphere in this place is delightful. Don't expect much service, but they help out in their own way, and eventually you slot into the pace. If you don't want to climb the steps to rooms 44 or 43, I can recommend room 15. The problem is not with Broadlands, but with Triplicane. In the old days you could walk around the corner onto Triplicane High Road and there were a couple of fine restaurants - Indian style. They have gone. Even one good one, Sea Lord, is now further up the road and upstairs. Then in later times there was a great roof-top bar just down the laneway, with item-number videos, beer and snacks, That's also gone - they have only kept the indoor section which is one of those sleazy Indian men-only places. To walk along Triplicane High Road is a nightmare - heavy traffic and no footpath, with all manner of obstacles along the road-sides. This exemplifies what has happened to Chennai over the last twenty years - it has become a noisy, dirty, crowded and charmless traffic jam with absolutely no facilities for the pedestrian. To get a reasonable meal, Ananda Bhavan is a bit of a treacherous walk down the main street, although it didn't look very attractive. If you want a good lunch or dinner, push on around into Pycrofts Road and down to A2B - they serve up excellent Indian Veg food, good ice-cream and juices, to say nothing of their superb sweets! I suppose we would return to Broadlands, but it would only be to fly in or out - Chennai has become too unpleasant to linger in.... More
