We went for dinner and are their buffet. The view is superb as Madurai shows itself in multi-color and the peacocks roam strutting their glory. However the food was average in taste, extremely spicy so be careful if you do not like too hot food like some of people in our group. The spread was good, many choices. The restrooms... More

Fell in love with everything about the hotel. The rooms were spacious and very comfy with nice garden areas all around. Peacocks roaming around the property added to the charm. Night views of the city were amazing as the hotel is at an elevated location. The food could though could be much better.

A great place to hang out in the city,the food is of course one of the worst for the money they charge, they serve beer in the restaurant. If u wanna have a drink n enjoy the view of Madurai from a hill this is the place u must go.

First of all the location. The British Governors had style,and power,and visibility! The hotel has carried on the tradition and the beautifully kept grounds are most enjoyable. We had a moonlight dinner outside,under a full moon,and there were traditional dances preformed in costume. The rooms were excellent as was the service and courtesy. What more could you ask for?
