Another great pit stop plus. Madurai is the old capital of Tamil Nadu before Chennai or Madras as we Brits used to call it. With its dry clinate its a great producer of jasmine, the gorgeous scent that graces our bus each morning. We loved this city much bettee vibe than Trichy from the night before And this was a beautiful hotel. Had a wonderful late night swim in the pool before bed last night and a complimentary fruit box from the manager this morning 🙏 Our Meenakshi Temple visit the day before was fab with our local guide Daisy. Sadly no pics from inside but there was a full sized pool with a golden lotus. People milling around, lying prone asking for blessings, the sick being carried in on their pilgrimage, school kids doing homework on the stone floor. Beggars lining up for a bowl of rice. Our #southindiatour2020 group now fully aclimatised its uttapam for breakfast, thaali for lunch and the nearest local eatery for dinner. That's us on the road again. Destination Thekkady Periyar...…
I stayed in it in January for 3.5K per night. It is value for money in that season. Service is good and responsive. Their travel service is very good and reasonable compared to taxi service outside. especially the driver Dinesh who drove us, was very patient and good. Breakfast is good. You can have campfire.
Its made such a way u cannot term it as resort nor a hotel. Anyway its beside the main road still they managed to provide as many facilities they can but I believe it's too clumpsy. Restaurant is okay kind of food so 3 star only I can give.
The residency is very well maintained. I stayed here during the month of june last year. The stay was comfortable. Breakfast provided was also very good. I used the Cab arranged by the Hotel. Its costlier than we could have easily taken a tour ourselves. I recommend ,roam at your own phase. You can easily cover all the places in a single day.
Stay at jc residency was awesome.. hotel is about 4-5km from railway station. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Supporting staff was good. There is a good restaurant. Breakfast buffet was realy good. Staff at the restaurant are very polite and helpful. There is a pool.. they had a very good travel desk.. i took their cab to visit near by places like thirupparakundram muruga temple, thirumala naykar palace, and few other temple.. rate was reasonable and driver was good.. i have stayed in jc residency two times.. both occasions i was satisfied with their service.. overall an excellent place to stay at madurai.
