Great property. Away from the crowds. Large rooms. Multi - MULTI level. Tough for folks with walking diasabilities, so ask for a room with easy access. Spend time (at night) in the terrace (outside their restaurant) overlooking the city of Madurai. Try and coordinate your visit with one of the many religious festivals, so you can enjoy the "movement" in the city from the splendour of your hotel.
Lovely property, excellent service and great food. Was received by Mr.Santosh who was kind enough to allow a very early check in. Thanks to the instructions given by the executive chef Mr.Sanjay, chef Suresh prepared and served a curated regional cuisine platter which was awesome. Thank you all for making my stay memorable. Look forward to see you all soon.
Next stop with Gate 1 is much better. Madurai is a magical place and this hotel is right out of Somerset Maugham. The hotel is in the hills overlooking the city so it’s a bit cooler. Peacocks roam the property. Rooms are a bit dated but in good condition. They are large and comfortable with marble floors. Bathrooms are large and updated. Beautiful views particularly from the dining room. Room views vary by location. Food is very good but breakfast needs a few more choices. Swimming pool area is very nice and pool is clean and refreshing. A bit far from town if you are here on your own. Be prepared for many many steps.Poor choice if you need handicap access.
Had wonderful time at Gateway hotel on Moondeck Dinner. Its a perfect candle light dinner venue for couples. Right from the Welcome ceremony till the cake cutting celebration it was awesome experience to remember. Dishes were excellent and tasty. Hats off to the chef. Full program schedule and hospitality was too good.
Everything right from checking in to porter services, room services, restaurant, checkout was all very professional and personal at the same time. Kudos to the manager Mr Vanipugal and his staff. I will recommend this to all people looking for a great experience during their getaway from their daily hum drum.
