we arrived at the royal court after leaving the Madurai Residency in disgust, so we had no room booking and were very flustered .As it was after 7pm, and we had a yelling toddler in tow, I was not looking forward to check in, or waiting for my daughter to negotiate a price. However, everything was wonderful. The lobby is great, lovely and cool, and check in was over in a flash, it was no problem we could not produce our passports straight away, the desk staff were great, happy to wait until we had got ourselves calmed down. The luggage was whisked up to the room, and room service offered immediatly. We paid Rs3000 for two adults and one child, including breakfast. The room was lovely, with a large window, decent bathroom with tub, and huge comfortable bed. It was very clean, and the linen was also fresh.
Breakfast here is fine. There is a large selection of buffet dishes, both hot and cold, indian and european style food and lovely poori, but unfortunatly no dosa.
We had intended to stay for a few days here to visit the temples etc, but we stayed for a week. We found the room sevice to be great, with no delays, and delicious food at reasonable prices. We had some clothing returned from the laundry, and one shirt was discoloured,when we showed it to the house keeping manager, Mr Sadik, he apologised profusely, gave us the value of the shirt without question and sent us a bowl of fruit to apologise. Wonderful. Mr Sadik went out of his way , as we were two ladies and a baby, to make sure our trip was enjoyable. He made sure rickshaw drivers charged us the right fare, had the room cleaned from top to bottom when we asked the cleaner to remove some dirt from behind the door to make sure the baby was kept clean. He even bought the baby a gift when we left as we had become friendly.
I get the impression this is more of a one night business hotel than a holiday hotel, but we found it to be flawless. I would definatly recommend it to anyone coming to Madurai for any reason. The location is good,hotel is great, food is good , staff are fantastic, especially Mr Sadik.
