Stayed here for 1 day after many years. I could hardly find any changes over the period of 10 years. Most of the furnitures and utileteries remained the same. Definitely needs facelifting and renovation. Rooms were clean but full of dust. Safety was of least concern due to easily openable windows in the room. Good things to mention -- pool... More

The hotel is about 45minutes drive from the airport however very close from railway station if you commuting by train. From airport if you taking a taxi it will cost you around INR1400 each way. The gateway hotel was formerly known as “Taj” and still people do know it by that name only. When we arrived our check in was... More

The hotel is a good way off from the airport. However, it is a short walk to the beach and reminds one of Goa. The breakfast buffet is very good and can relax you totally after a night spent watching the stars on the beach. Neat and clean, the staff are friendly. I was with my elder sister aged 75,... More

I stayed at kadavu previously and at Taj on this trip. Both for the same reason. Gorgeous setting and old building. The general appearance and architecture doesn't let you down but does Calicut have a problem maintaining old buildings? The toilet sinks are quite old and it shows and the loo has many make shift plumbing that is usually typical... More

Perhaps the best service among hotels in kerala. Mr Johnson, the chef takes personal care,try the Johnson omelette! Very sweet n understanding chef. Biggest smiles in Calicut are on the staffs faces. Checking our taxi to look for leftovers after we disembarked was very thoughtful. Proximity to paragon restaurant,the best restaurant in kerala is another plus,so is the nearby beach.... More

Gateway Hotel is excellent property with good ambience and surrounding. Rooms are specious. Very close to the beach, you can have morning and evening walk at the beach. Staff is very friendly and supportive. It is one of the only and best hotel for business travellers as it is within city.
