This Hotel scores very well on account of its' 24 hour restaurant service with good food options.... especially it was useful to me since i reached very late from rameshwaram but still got hot food with full menu. The room interiors are good (although bit compact and no chairs to sit and watch TV) and a clean bathroom.Reception staff was... More

I stayed here for a night on 21st March. I have made booking by sending an email and they had confirmed booking even without asking for advance money transfer or anything. Once I arrived, the check-in was done promptly and we were taken to the room. The room was good and comfortable. Resturant was good for dinner and break-fast. All... More

This was our second stay at Meenakshi's sunshine and we absolutely regret having decided to stay there the second time around. The so called 'luxury' room was tacky and seemed miniscule. It was definitely far from 'luxurious'. The furniture was broken in many places. The dustbin pedal was broken and on complaining, the staff casually informed us that they dont... More

Previously when ordered a salad or sandwich it would be great. Recently not only ur chef has almost reduced to half the quantity , but also quality getting... More

Stayed here 2 nights for a weekend away although a little out of town you get value for money. Very comfy bed, great shower and nice communal area outside of rooms. Nice funky madurai style bar. The Breakfast could be better but would recommend.

This is not a hotel for tourist. Only inpatient relationsof the meenakshi hospital can stay there. Not a single chair or table inside the room. Very worst room designing. All the fittings and interior is good. But due to poor room design everything wasted. Hospitality and food is good. Staff are courteseous. Unfortunateley a worng place to stay.

I stayed with my extended family for two nights and found this place a great value for money. The service was good, and the rooms were clean! It's a little distance from the attractions and you should have your own transportation. The free breakfast was good. I wish the approach road to the hotel is a little wider. I would... More
