“Great value, great location, highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2011

Nice old heritage building and v large villas in grounds. Based on cost thought superb value for money-'wet' rooms were gigantic and really well appointed. Pool area fine and lots of sunbeds. Food fine - breakfast ditto- not a gastronomic experience but not there for that. Would highly recommend if you can get at a sensible rate- we were around the "£100 mark for great rooms

My first visit to Madurai, and this hotel was an oasis of calm in otherwise hectic and fascinating city. We had a large suite with plunge pool which the kids loved, but most of all the setting, pool and the staff were great. plus we had the best massage ever - it was so relaxing!:)
also make sure you have the complimentary yoga session with Dr Arun each morning at 7am - well worth the rise!

It was a really lovely hotel to stay with young children, aged 6, 4, 2 and i would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: go direct online with them!

We stayed there for 2 nights very nice room very contemporain look and very confortable kingsize bed. Very clean and big bathroom only negative point not a lot of lights in the bathroom. Very nice pool and also the staff is very good. Good restaurant. The price of the room is very very affordable for that kind of hotel. If ever we go back to Madurai we would stay there for sure.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2011

We had a luxury villa and our room was extremely spacious with all mod cons - umpteen TV stations, a fruit basket, newspaper, etc - a very nice bathroom and a lovely outside patio and plunge pool. Our only negative comment was that as the room, like all the other rooms, was at ground-floor level, there was no privacy once you opened the blinds.

We were rather concerned on our first evening to note that there was a big tour group staying and dinner was a buffet but we specifically asked for a la carte and were pleased we didn't have to have the buffet. Likewise, one morning, because of the tour group, there was a buffet breakfast - but indeed a very substantial one - while the second morning there was a breakfast menu.

There's a large and immaculately maintained swimming pool although it was somewhat reminiscent of a municpal pool in the UK. The grounds were well maintained but not particularly pretty - some flowers would have made such a difference!

The Heritage Madurai was a great experience and we really loved our stay at this hotel. It seems quite new...the service was exellent and the pool quiet and hot :). breakfast very tasty and very friendly staff. the only thing i did not like was the location. in the internet this hotel was advertised as being in the heaert of the city and only walking distance to the famous temple of Madurai but thats not true. its a 15 min ride in an auto to the hotel from the train station and to the temple. there is nothing to see in walking distance of the hotel. but overall i loved this hotel and i would defo go back there.

Our luxury villa with our own (cold) plunge pool was very specious and spotless clean !
The hotel is situated very close to the citycentre.
I booked the room by Agoda because my mail to the hotel was not returned.
Highly recommended !

Excellent hotel. very good swimming pool. Service and food is best. They have given rooms and surroundings a village kind of look. Our room was deluxe club room, it was very huge hall kind of room. But interiors of the room were not up to the mark. The room was a huge hall with very less decoration on walls. But might be this was to give room a village room kind of look, looked like empty on walls. But what really need to be improved was lighting facility near mirror in bath. As it was difficult to shave in dim light in bath (unless there was some hidden light which we could not figure out). Apart from above the resort/hotel is excellent. They value your feedback too, as during checkout they asked me to write my feedback and took note of everything i mentioned. So in all its an excellent place to stay.
