No visit to Madurai will be fulfilled without touching base at the Gateway Hotel Pasumalai. Its an experience of being in the midst of Peacocks , Wonderful ambience and the professional and crisp importance given to quality.
From the reception to the kitchen , the quality is visible and excellent value for money.
The Executive Chef treated us to some display of his magical fingers including a "Mirchi Halwa" , which was excellent and a new flavor to our pallets.

Wish we could write good experiences about hotels more often.

This was an excellent experience.

Room Tip: Room number 21 had an good view of Madurai city and the property itself. Believe there is one more...

The hotel is an pretty old English mansion located in a big park on the to of an hill.
We were book in the main part of the hotel but it was a bit to authentic for us specially the bathroom (with was looking like it was there since the 5O's) so we have been nicely upgraded to one new suite and this was very very nice. The room was very comfortable.
There is like 20 free peacocks in the park which make the place very special.
The swimming is very pleasant and we had a relaxing time surrounding by all those spectaculars trees.
Gateway is part of the Taj group and as usual the service is very good

I am writing this review from the hotel room itself. Could not wait to give compliments to this place else I forget when I am back in hustle bustle of the city life. We actually styaed here accidentally...got a stomach upset on my way back to hyderabad so we decided to halt in madurai for the night. And what a stroke of luck..!!. I have been to many hotels around the globe and this property certainly is the best one I have been to considering the price, location, setting, scenic beauty etc. The hotel is too reasonably priced for such a luxury....I bet they might attract more customers if they just hike the price a bit. Really really impressed. Good luck to them, hope they maintain it the the way they have been till now. Dont miss the peacocks if you here :)

I have stayed here more than one times and have had a very pleasant experience. What i love about the place is it's greenery and space that it offers. You have a tennis court and a swimming pool and a wide area where you can walk in peace. You need to drive the last bit uphill and you enter the hotel. It definitely makes it not a good choice for people who want to do a lot of shopping and general movement in the city. I love it because after i finish my work i prefer the quiet and peace. The rooms are big and has all the essentials. There are many peacocks in the hotel and they roam about freely and their shrill cries are the sound that you will most probably wake up to. The restaurant is a little far away from the rooms and you need to walk. The view is marvelous and the food is great. So in a nutshell stay here if you want to unwind and chill.
