Thanks again Ampere, I had gone through the reviews and rating on Tripadvisor before closing on the place. Now the only nagging part is the parking which I hope wont be much of a trouble.

Typically with respect to Madurai, my perception has been that the good hotels are a bit away from the center of the city and hence may have more space. But its not that big a city where one cant take cab/auto to reach a place very fast.

Add to it as Ravi says, the new re-vamped New College House restaurant!

Hello Folks,

Just planning for a drive from Bangalore to Rameshwaram in coming days. I was wondering about the road conditions after the horrendous rains on the east cost in TN.
Any ideas and updates on the same. Is the road from Rameshwaram to Dhanushkoti ready now ?

Mate, Even I will be travelling to Kanyakumari and Rameswaram in the last week of December. In your case, stick to NH7 and then take the Madurai-Rameswaram road.
We do not have a complete road from Rameswaram to Dhanushkodi. Only upto certain point you can take your vehicle after which you have to rely on 4X4 jeeps only.

Hadn't heard of the 4 laning work but last I heard it was quite good, no bad sections really.
