i stayed here during last october for 2 days. one of the best properties that you can think of both in terms of service and ambience. Special thanks to the executive housekeeper Mr. Rajasekar and the security manager mr. manohar. They went out of their way and showed us around the property.

I made a last minute decision to stay in this hotel without an online reservation. Once I entered the gate of the hotel, I was denied entry and was told by the security that I can only stay in the hotel with an online reservation. (WTF?) Probably the only hotel that does not take over-the-counter bookings. So I called up... More

It's a beautiful property, spread in 65 acres of land. Surrounded by greenery around. The architecture takes you back to the colonial era. Staff is helpful, good food. Unfortunately could spend only one night but would love to visit again.

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.
