The Hotel was super clean. Though the rooms are small they are comfortable . The Hotel is bit far from the City that's the only draw back of the hotel. the Food at the restaurant was nominal and good but it takes long time to get served. Over all it was a good stay @ Sunshine hotel :)

I stayed here for two nights with family including young children. The stay here was pleasant, the rooms were very clean with nice interiors. They have a common living area (shared by 4 rooms) with seating space and a dinning table, which was good and helped to spend some time with family enjoying the fresh air sipping coffee. The restaurant...

We stayed here for two nights this week. It's located around 5 km from the city center and is very conveniently accessible for people driving in from Rameshwaram or Chennai. Meenakshi temple, Tirumalai Naicker Mahal and shopping areas are around 6 kms from here. The staff is what makes this place worth coming back for. They were extremely helpful and...

We stayed one night at the Meenakshi's Sunshine, especially to attend the closing ceremony at the Meenakshi temple. The rooms are clean and neat, yet small. The room service and the service in the restaurant very good. We can recommend this hotel, but one should know that the buffet lunch is costly and the hotel is about 20 driving minutes...

This is a hotel which is a little away (~5kms) from the main temple at Madurai. From the outside it looks like a very basic hotel. This is a spotlessly clean place. It can seriously compete with any star rated hotels for its cleanliness and attention to detail. The A/c worked perfect, the buffet breakfast was 'above average', the toilets...

We stayed in this hotel for one night but we wished we have stayed longer. Very, very clean hotel situated in quiet area around 15 minutes ride from the main Madurai's attractions. Very comfortable beds, nice bathroom, tasty food in the restaurant, proffesional service - great value for money.
