Very disappointing service and food was not up to the mark.

4.9/7

It was holiday trip with my family to Madurai. We received very bad service there. The room service was very disappointing they didn't provide us with water, we had to fill the water ourselves. The restaurant in the hotel is not good. The food is very bad and very costly. I kept calling the help desk for water but there was no one to attend or no one came to check. It's the responsibility of the hotel to have the water available for the guests but they didn't check it. The restaurant food is very bad we asked for tandoori Roti and was given raw chapatis, the mattar paneer didn't have any taste. We even asked for toor Dale fry they gave us moong Dale and it was not cooked properly. I had a very bad experience in the restaurant the food was not worth the amount we paid and I didn't want to go to the restaurant again. This was also one of the reasons why I checked our of the hotel and moved to another hotel the very next day. I would definitely ask the hotel to work on this feedback so it's not a hassle for the other guests. Madurai is an excellent place to visit. The hotel is centrally located and everything is close by. The appearance of the hotel is good but the name College House is very confusing. It's difficult to guess whether it's a hotel or house it's not very clear. We didn't have any issue with check in or check out the staff carried our luggage to the room. There was no complimentary tea or coffee given to us. The service of the hotel is average. The room was okay the bed was clean and comfortable. There was a power cut for a while and it was a non AC room. There was no extra facilities available no gym, spa or swimming pool. We were not given any complimentary breakfast. We did our booking directly.

Not worth ... Worst hotel"

2.8/7

I visited Madurai in the month of March 2017 on a business trip. I directly booked my stay at this hotel when I reached the spot. The hotel location was nearby to the Meenakshi Amman temple. It was nearby to my required places. The hotel atmosphere was not up to the mark. The appearance was just average from outlook but from inside it was horrible. It was not looking like a hotel it was like a lodge. The front desk was just doing their work. There was no problem in the booking process. Rooms were terrible. It was not well maintained. Everything was just average. I didn't like it. The room service was dull in providing the services. There was no restaurant in that hotel. I managed outside. There were few good restaurants outside the hotel. There were no fun activities in that hotel. The overall service was just average not at all satisfied with that hotel. I made a mistake by selecting this hotel.

Good value for money

5.3/7

On my business trip I traveled to Madurai in the month of March 2017 went alone. I booked my stay at this hotel. The destination was very good. The location was excellent and easy to access. It was near by to the bus stand. The appearance of the hotel was normal. The front office was very good and cooperative. They were helping me to carry my luggage up to the room. The room was kept clean and tidy. They provide only one power point and this was very annoying to me. They need to provide two more power points to use my other accessories. The Bath room was kept hygienic. I did not take food over there. Overall service was good.
