“Good suprise in the middle of nowhere”
Reviewed 30 April 2012 via mobile

As others reviewers have said, the hotel is quite far from the city center. to a certain degree, it is quite a blessing to stay in a quieter location if you want a good nights sleep.
Rooms were modern, spotless and quite confortable. The wifi was relatively fast and a big plus!
Major points for the service and the restaurant, which is 24 hours !! Though the restaurant is nice enough seems most peoplemordered room service meals. Some of the orders looked like banquet size! Rooms are arranged around halls, each having a dining table. Quite convinient for the multiple plates and sharing dishes.
Staff goes out of their way to accomodate any request. Highly recommended.

Stayed March 2012

It was long drive from Bangalore and we had made no reservation but conversation over phone to the Hotel Sunshine . It was difficult for us to locate the hotel as the hotel is little far from the city . Kudos to the hotel guys who came and picked up from the place we were almost lost and also served as quick dinner.

When we reached the hotel we were not disappointed by the hospitality of the staff. They have friendly staff .

The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The Linen and towels are as good as the five star hotel. Though its small hotel but they have good standards.
Food was very decent and we liked the food ! The room service menu is quite reasonable and they provide quick services.

Its definitely value for money and good stay

The Sunshine hotel is quite modern and this shows - good size well designed rooms, well laid out - working lifts, working fast wi-fi and good room service. Its just outside Madurai but only 10 minutes by autorickshaw. The restaurant is OK but the room service has a much bigger choice and is reasonably priced. The included buffet Breakfast had lots of choice and was very good.
The front desk staff were excellent - always helpful and efficient. We needed a doctor one morning - we were escorted to the hospital next door, a consultation arranged, prescription issued, medicines provided - and back to the hotel in less than 30 minutes! Unless you need to stay in the centre - this is the hotel for Madurai.

This hotel is located about a 20 minute tuk-tuk ride from the main temple. The rooms and dinning room are clean. Two sides of the hotel are about 100m from a major road. With the fan and AC on, we could still hear the constant honking of traffic -- strong sleepers wouldn't be bothered. The staff did given us a new room on the opposite side, which was very quiet. Wireless was spotty to nonexistant in both of the two rooms we tried.

Check-out time is 24 hours after you check-in -- a very nice policy.
