Stay here only if you are in good shape. The hotel is isolated on a hilltop in a huge preserve. From our room, it was 91 steps down to the restaurant and 91 up! Our room was huge but shabby. Plumbing came apart in our hands. Service was slow or non existent: 4 hours for hand towels and then only bath towels arrived. In its favor, the restaurant (91 steps......) is quite lively and good. Watch out for mosquitoes! I had a dozen bits sitting outside for a very few minutes. I can't say what else is available in Madeurai. Just that this is the Taj that Taj forgot.
