We started early at the morning, we usually start early morning to avoid traffics on the road. We travelled by our own cars we love to drive yourself. Because it is comfortable as we could stop anywhere as we wish. We saw too many hotels and dhabas on the way.

Travel was good, roads were good, weather isn't so great. Stayed in town for 2 weeks roaming around the town traffic is normal. KSRTC is good to travel as its cheap and reliable. No blankets, water just travel. I would suggest for any one who wants to travel to Madurai.

It's hotel better to stay in Madurai, compared to other hotels around. Parking is ample space, Food is good esp complimentary break fast was good. Non veg could be better. Facilities cant expect much of sophistication. Room facility is good and timely. Staff were ok, not so courteous.more »

Very good experience had to travel long and had good food in many places on the way to Madurai. Travel through NH7 was good and safety. Tool booth was very hectic in NH7 because there is no proper way to go through. People are very good as we met on way.

I traveled during night time with my family. The bus quality was good. It was a AC bus and very neat and clean. The bus was very punctual to arrive on time on source and started as per schedule.

The journey was comfortable. I did not find any problem during the journey even though it was a night journey.

I had boarded KPN Scania bus on Friday. Look was awesome. But the seat was full of Bed Bugs. I was not able to sit even. The same bus came for return as well on Sunday with same amount of bed bugs. They are not cleaning it properly. Kindly take proper action. It will be difficult to travel like this in future.
