I had visited this place for an event and found this place very nice. The location on top of a hill is superb. They have restaurant facing the city which is splendid.The place has forest around so you can hear voices of various birds.

Very good personnel and excellent rooms. Had a great time with family. Refreshing break. My son loved the private garden. Food has improved form what it was but requires further tweaking. Clean premises and peacocks in plenty......had a great time with them.

This is one of my favorite place. Location, Garden, Quietness and excellent service team make your stay become an experience rather than just a stay. Restaurant overlooking the city skylines has a potential of becoming a sightseeing spot. Be ready for a long walk, you will definitely enjoy it in the midst of pleasant music created by peacocks, cuckoos &...

I made a big mistake ! The property was extremely dirty : empty butter packets in the bushes, empty plastic bottles on the footpath,...

This Gateway was once the grand residence of Sir James Doak, British MD of Madurai Mills. The hotel now maintains a character reminiscent of such a residence. My wife left india...
