Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews

High on a hill overlooking Madurai the hotel had breathtaking views of the city. An old colonial building turned hotel it had the feel of time gone by. Restaurant staff a bit slow but elsewhere everyone was on the ball. We ate out in the evening so I can't comment on the dinner menu.
