This is an excellent choice. The hotel is located on the grounds of a former British country club, not far from the city center and the temple. Some buildings are renovated club structures, some are architect designed to match the style. A new swimming pool resembling a traditional step well is fed with artesian waters and does not appear to use chlorine. While all rooms we have seen were very nice, one must be aware that the hotel property borders a transmission belt factory and the factory noise is definitely bothersome in some rooms. When we complained about it, the manager found us a quiet room which also happened to be an upgrade (at no additional charge) . The next day we realized that we need a day room since our train did not depart until 11PM. Again, the manager, Joby Jose, agreed to let us keep our room until late that evening at a very reasonable rate. The food at the hotel is good and after trying a highly rated downtown roof top restaurant the night before, eating at the hotel turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
We recommend this hotel as a great place to retreat from the congested streets of Madurai. The hotel management is responsive, friendly, and helpful, and the accommodations are very comfortable.
