I stayed at Meenakshi's Sunshine hotel with my family (wife and kid, 10 yrs) on two different dates during a South India driving holiday in Oct '11. I got to know of the hotel on the tripadvisor website. On both dates that I stayed I felt this was one of those few hotels with high value for money. The reception was very welcoming, with a welcome drink. I had booked my rooms thru a well known web based booking portal. The hotel staff were very helpful, courteous, and the hotel offered me plenty for the cost I paid. There was a fridge in the room, an instant hot water machine for that tea I needed at random, high class toiletries, a smart airconditioner, high speed Wi-Fi for free, and an LCD TV. Their restaurant operates 24 hrs- can you match that? You can gauge the quality of their service from the fact that your morning complimentary newspaper is delivered in a specially wrapped polythene wrap with your name on a label, and neatly attached to your room door. Their complimentary breakfast was sumptuous to say the least. The staff even helped me fix a puncture in my car tire on one morning- I noticed an embedded nail picked up from my long drive before I reached their hotel.
The only hitch is that the hotel is somewhat far (20 min drive) from the Meenakshi temple that most tourists would want to visit. But the hotel has a free drop service to that place (although we could not avail of this).
I would definitely recommend Meenakshi's Sunshine hotel for families and couples anytime, but I would also suggest that guests have some travel arrangements for their local needs.
