Fell in love with everything about the hotel. The rooms were spacious and very comfy with nice garden areas all around. Peacocks roaming around the property added to the charm. Night views of the city were amazing as the hotel is at an elevated location. The food could though could be much better.

A great place to hang out in the city,the food is of course one of the worst for the money they charge, they serve beer in the restaurant. If u wanna have a drink n enjoy the view of Madurai from a hill this is the place u must go.

First of all the location. The British Governors had style,and power,and visibility! The hotel has carried on the tradition and the beautifully kept grounds are most enjoyable. We had a moonlight dinner outside,under a full moon,and there were traditional dances preformed in costume. The rooms were excellent as was the service and courtesy. What more could you ask for?

This restaurant is situated in the Taj Gateway Hotel in Pasumalai, which I have reviewed elsewhere on Trip Advisor. Thanks to its location, right at the top of the little hill, you get a nice view of the city, especially at night. As I was here for a conference, i had all my breakfasts and dinners here. The restaurant serves... More

This hotel lives and exceeds the expectation that a customer has from Taj group of hotels. We have been to many hotels and nobody can beat the service that Taj provides. We had booked for 3 nights 4 days but just couple of days before the booked date, my baby fell it. The Manager was very considerable and allowed us... More

In the evening you can try Pao Bhaji... Peacocks also roam around which you can enjoy in natural way... My favourite whenever I am in Madurai.
