We were upgraded to a huge room with views over gardens and down to city. Spotless and great bed and bathroom. Lots of fluffy towels. Excellent breakfast, nice pool, discreet efficient staff. We hopped in and out of centre by yuk yuk which takes about 15 minutes.

Good part about Gateway Madurai is all outside 20th and 21st century noise is silenced by the mini forest and hill elevated location. Food here i excellent with mix of local, north Indian and continental varieties. Staff are very helpful.

We stayed at The Gateway last week. We were a huge group of friends and family travelling together. The entrance is like going up the hill and feels like a hill station. The birds eye view of Madurai was visible from our rooms. When you reach the reception, there are peacocks walking around. It was beautiful. The rooms are large... More

Rooms are large but are outdated. Workman was hammering and would not stop until late in the evening. The food in the restaurant is very bad. The chef claims to cook Thai but has no idea of what it should taste like. They have no white wine by the glass which you really want in that hot weather. Peacocks in... More

Everything about this place is awesome. The entry to the hotel is slightly up the hill, feels great in a city like Madurai. The moment you enter you could see peacocks around in a lush green campus. We were treated so special, front desk, check-in was great. They gave us the best room at the hotel, we could see the... More

The Gateway Hotel is located a 20 minute drive outside Madurai. Well worth the time to get to and from the city. Made use of the outdoor pool (with peacocks looking on) and excellent spa, in this character hotel with lush vegetation in an idyllic setting. I have a sensitivity to noise and require as much quiet as possible -... More
