We went to this hotel expecting it to be a smaller property like some of the other Gateway brand properties. But we were pleasantly proven wrong! The driveway to the entrance sets the tone! The rooms are huge and well-appointed. The room service had the characteristic efficiency of Taj.
The restaurant has an excellent view of the Madurai town. If you can tolerate some mosquitoes, then the dinner under a star-lit sky with the town lights just below the eye-level is an experience to remember.
The peacocks on the property added a nice touch, and could be a good entertaining experience for the kids.
