The Gateway Hotel Pasumalai Madurai
Ranked #2 of 54 Hotels in Madurai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 8, 2011

Built as a superb residence in the days of cotton (carrington-viyella) on a hill away from town.
Excellent, comfortable and spacious rooms set in blocks around central house and tranquil together with good warm welcome.
Pleasant atmosphere throughout, staff helpful and friendly, beverages overpriced but well served in pleasing old colonial residence surroundings.
Large garden with cool swimming pool and plenty of sun chairs. Good place to spent the afternoon after sightseeing.
Breakfast OK nothing special, Dinner was well described and presented on garden terrace overlooking the town or AC inside. However they are very small portion, a bit overpriced and nothing exceptional. The restaurant describes better than it delivers, and thinks its better than it is. Should put some questionnaires about.
Would certainly recommend and use again, wifi is free around reception area.

One of the best properties in India. Splendid beauty where you'd be waken up by numerous peacocks sprawling across the boundary. Rooms are beautiful, cozy and spacious. Food is amazingly great. In all, a great stay at a wonderful property at very reasonable rates. A sure visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are just best .. :)

Absolutely great view of the temple. Nicely designed and built. The rooms are fantastic and food is exceptional. Can't hope for more. This hotel is amongst the best places I stayed in. Driving in an out of this hotel you will go through a tree lined road. A visit to the exquisite Madurai temple and stay at this hotel will be something to remember and talk about.

It was not the first time I stayed at this hotel, but every time my experience keeps on getting better after every stay. Hotel is utmost Picturesque and to add to its beauty you will find Peacocks roaming around in the widespread gardens. Staff is extremely amiable. Watching rain from balcony of the room with a cup of coffee is a unforgettable memory. Barbeque dinner at Garden view restaurant is an experience in itself and off course Taj kitchens are the best in itself. Rooms may not be the best of place you may find but overall experience would surely be soothing. Go, unwind and discover YOURSELF in the peaceful surrounding...

The only choice at Madurai for those who expect the very best and want a memorable holiday or weekend. The hotel has luxurious chalet style rooms complementing the architecture of the main heritage building that dates back to the British Raj. We were pampered by a young and well trained staff who invariably provided service with a smile and delighted us with their politeness and impeccable manners in the true Taj tradition. A fantastic and well-maintained swiming pool, ayurvedic spa and high quality multi-cuisine restaurent round off the perfect choice for a business or leisure stay at Madurai. Though my first visit to this hotel in 2009 was on business, my stay this time around was for a rejuvenating holiday for leisure and relaxation with family and friends spent mostly in the swimming pool surrounded by greenery with peacocks wandering by. We did not leave the property even once during our two day stay and hope to holiday at this hotel at least once every year from now on.

Great rooms, beautiful location, great service - this hotel is less advertised but an amazing stay. Peacocks on the property add to the charm. You can see the entire Madurai city. Rooms are large and very comfortable and food at the restaurant is very good
