We stayed at this property end of May, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here The highlights: Extremely courteous staff (Front desk as well as restaurant). Great location - The property has a river body attached to it. If one is lucky one can spot wild life right there. Yummy food, but spread could be better. Spacious rooms - However bathrooms... More

Delicious food and very courteous staff made this stay fun. The rooms were not to the 5 star standards but were comfortable. The bathrooms are small and get wet in a single use. The management could easily correct this by putting shower curtains. Other than that every thing else fell in place. From checkin to checkout have nothing to complain... More

I stayed here while on a trip to Gir Sasan to see the lion sanctuary. I wanted to take a dip in the pool, and walked by it to check the temperature. The staff warned me away, saying that no one is allowed near the water without a bathing suit. Okay, that's fine, I can live with that. Rules are... More

Excellent location - faces the hiram river. This has become a disadvantage for the hotel since instead of overlooking the forest and hearing alarm calls, you are seeing the gypsies being washed in the river during the day. Evenings are pleasant though and if you are lucky, you could hearing alarm calls. Surprising but the hotel does not have effective... More

Great stay at the hotel! Early morning and evening walks next to river was something out of this world. Mornings were so pristine, there was no sound except that of the water and chirping of birds. The atmosphere was calm and meditative, at least for me! In case one is lazy same can be enjoyed from hotel balcony as well.... More

Great stay at gateway hotel. My family had a wonderful time because of the staff. They were always ready to serve us. The Safari organize by the hotel was great experience. The food is simple but delicious. If you at gir you must stay at gateway hotel.

Great promise - but extremely poor delivery! Rooms are too small, not equipped enough, have poor finish... worst is the food... Must be an achievement to be so consistently poor quality! Staff wants to help... very eager and enthusiastic. All else - not worth it...
