“Excellent Hotel, Great Location, Great Ambience”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

Wonderful Place, A Wonderful location.. Great Rooms, Excellent Atmosphere..Stayed for 3 nights in room 53 (Executive room) with mother between 14th & 17th Aug'12, Situated atop a hill, very huge area, with great views to the city side (meenakshi temple) & murugan temple on the other...Had nice view of the meenakshi temple & city side from my room.. Dont be surprised to see peacocks around your rooms more often than not..around 300 peacocks seem to be there in the location...a large amount of the area of the hotel is still a road less travelled..Great surroundings..lot of greenery which is pleasent to the eyes...Makes you forget that you staying in a city..

Had a slightly delayed check in, but there on; the room upgrades due to the package booking for the stay, the people at service (Ansari at the reception during check-in, the people at the GAD restaurant Murali, Praveen, Nagarajan, Ramesh & to the chefs, Ranjitha while check-out)..great people at work who make u feel more homely,comfortable.. great work people,, hats off...Thank you all, everyone at the hotel, for making it a memorable stay for us..Truly a Taj

One discomforting factor is the mobile connectivity in most of the rooms, it gets disconnected frequently..

Food Options at the GAD were really good, great taste, nice choices..very neat spread of options during the buffet breakfast & buffet dinner..the lunch was a a-la carte..

Will definitely recommend to everyone for the place, the value for money, the people..Excellent Hotel ! !

Very good taj hotel in Madurai... the view from the hotel is amazing..you could have a very good
view of madurai from the hill.

Food is very good and reception was very friendly and helpful..

There are plenty of trees and many peacocks in the surroundings,,,,,amazing...

Only issue is if you leave the room open, bugs and mosquito might come into the room,,,,

It's a hill top resort, having cottages and rooms. It gives a nice view of the city. From the restaurant, the view of Meenakshi temple in the night will be very good. Wonderful place to stay. Food was very good and staff were very courteous. You will come across peacocks in the resort very often.

I was returning to the hotel after almost 4 years and was shocked to see it being down-graded as a "Gateway", the budget brand of Taj. The hill top resort property with its colonial cottages and spacious rooms lost none of its charm though. The gardens are as green and the peacocks as numerous and beautiful. The room tariff is quite low for this kind of a property and ambiance but the food is quite expensive and the options very limited. The sumptuous breakfast spread with authentic south Indian dishes, if included in the room rate, makes it a steal.
This is an old-world hotel, with quite a bit of walking and climbing to get around between lobby, restaurant, rooms, pool etc. - one should be pre-warned if they are not into this kind of physical activity.
Why would anyone look at other options in Madurai?
