I was here on a leisure trip with my family. This property (more than 60 acres) is located on top of the hill Pasumalai. The road leading from the main road to hotel is breathtaking. You can view Madurai city from the gardens surrounding the cottages / rooms. The rooms are furnished to the needs and maintained well. During day... More

I stayed at the hotel complex for three night while on business in nearby Tirumangalam. The hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city and temple and is a bit of an oasis up on the side of a hill overlooking the city. Check in was quick and easy. There are a fair amount of stairs... More

Great food. Good ambience. shud visit once. Location of the restaurant is excellent. You often see peacocks roaming here. When you come here, you forget that you are in a city, you feel like you have come to a hill station.

I accidentally landed in this hotel in Madurai and was extremely excited to see the main building of British Era. My childhood memories were all brushed up as I had the privilege to stay in similar bungalows in Ahmadnagar. The 64 acre property is a good place to relax and be close to nature. It can not be quoted as... More

A few minutes away from the busy streets of Madurai you find The Gateway Hotel Pasumalai located at a hill overlooking Madurai. The garden is spectacular and well maintained with beautiful Peacooks and there is also a nice pool. The rooms are spacious and clean. A spectacular stay.

The hotel is beautifully set in landscaped grounds on top of a hill overlooking the city of Madurai. We asked for an executive room which offers a lovely view of Madurai below from its first floor bay window. The hotel is large and caters for both tourist and business use and therefore falls slightly between the two character wise. However... More
