Comfortable, neat rooms, nice interiors, great view (river facing rooms especially). Comparatively smaller as compared to other Taj properties, but no complaints whatsoever with respect to amenities and customer service. Good food, clean pool, a small badminton court and an indoor games lounge provide more options to a family. We found the hotel staff to be extremely well behaved and... More

This property of Taj Hotels would probably the smallest Property as there are just about 28 rooms, however the service and food are excellent. Go for rooms on the first floor as there is no lift in the hotel. The Hotel also arranges for visit to Sasan Gir Forest.

Excellent location & amenities. Very cordial staff. The only hotel in Gir which offers nature walk, which is highly recommended. Safari too was excellent. A yes for those seeking leisure safaris, although do not expect it to be luxurious like any other Gateway. That was the only thing wanting.

We had a decent stay but felt the Hotel needs some sprucing up and modernizing. They were unable to organize the Passes to the Forest though another Hotel was able to at short notice, seeing the Forest is the primary purpose of being there.

I generally mix my work with some holidays. From Ahmedabad drove down NH 47 to Sasan via Rajkot and Junagadh. Super Road. Stayed in Taj Gateway, Sasan Gir from 10 to 12 Apr. An excellent property located next to the Lion Sanctuary. Just 28 Rooms but the ones with the river view are super. 2nd floor is the preferred one.... More

We came here on the back of good experience with the Gateway group. We had a great time. The rooms are well laid out and we stayed in those overlooking the Hiran river. Early morning with a cup of tea was a delight with excellent bird watching opportunities. A flock of parrots were frequent visitors. The staff at the desk... More

The Gateway nestled next to Sasangir forest somehow gives the feel of Maharajah's Shikaar house, accentuated by, the fact that it has a tiny library filled with wildlife books (including Salim Ali's autobiography on Fall of a sparrow). The hotel has a small river flowing at the backside, so really pleasant to sit out in morning at have breakfast. Staff... More

This is the only high end hotel near the Gir National Park entry gate. This review will cover both the hotel and, briefly, Gir National Park. The hotel is also just a stone's throw from the main office of the park which is convenient when you have to get up at 3 in the morning to stand in line at... More

This hotel was a real treat particularly as we had been staying in lodge style accomodation. The room was of a good size with a comfortable bed with a good bathroom.. The balcony overlooked the garden and river which was good for birdwatching. Whilst we had experienced plenty of well meaning service on our trip we felt that the staff... More
