With its great location (hillside overlooking Madurai) and heritage accommodation laid out in pleasant gardens & woodland areas, this could become the top-class hotel that Madurai currently lacks. However, it needs some investment to realise its unique potential. Maybe Taj calculate that Madurai will not sustain a more upmarket brand than Gateway, though that would seem surprising in view of... More

I ve always enjoyed the atmosphere here , and the rooms are lovely but the food is a disappointment , and at the swimming pool it took for ever to get it , the hotel should have a facility on the spot, but would always return

Stayed 1 night on our southern India trip and wished stayed another night. Service very good. Rooms fantastic,slightly dated but clean. Food was good for lunch,dinner and breakfast. For an Indian hotel this is a place I would recommend.

We stayed at the Gateway for 2 nights. Our initial impressions were good as the property is very quiet and set in lovely grounds yet close to the city. Our room was large and well furnished with a large terrace and lovely view. The only thing lacking in the room was a room safe, so we rang down and 10... More

This purports to be the best in Madurai (though we were told the Heritage is better) but it really isn't very good. It consists of a series of old colonial buildings on the top of a hill on the edge of town which are pretty seriously run down. The older ones need total rebuilding but even if the cash is... More

Very few good hotels in Madurai. Gateway is a good choice of hotel to stay. Situated on top of a hill with a great view of the city and the temple. Great staff, good food. Great property to take a stroll. There were families staying at the hotel and the staff were kid friendly. We spent Xmas eve and X... More

Definately the best hotel, best food, amazing breakfast, best service in Madurai. Nothing else comes close. Iove this hotel and will return.. Also perched on a hill with great views of Maduri and very quiet with Peakocks and animals roaming around.

Thank you for the hospitality. My wife and I enjoyed staying here. The gardens and the general atmosphere is very relaxing. The service was excellent. The place was absolutely clean and no air pollution. The swimming pool was maintained very well and the water was clean. We look forward to visiting again..

Faded grandure right enough, but this gives it character not found in a purpose built modern hotel. Separate blocks of rooms, of differing vintage, set in lush grounds. The food is excellent with lots of variety. The chefs will even give cookery demonstrations. I can now cook a passable chappati.The staff were delightful. Don't forget, Samy, the hotels green butler.... More
