What will strike you about the place is its Heritage. Acquired church quarters so I learnt is very well maintained. Well manicured lawns ! Having tea sitting in it and enjoying the nature would relax you. I cannot remember the room number. It was a bit smaller than the others. Since we were outdoors that was not much of an... More

Nice little charming property that takes you back to colonial times…quite similar to their sister hotel in Ooty, although the rooms are a bit dated compared to the Ooty property. However, the hotel provides for nice and cozy stay. Rooms are spacious and come with fireplaces which provides for a nice evening hang out. Restaurant provides for some very good... More

We wanted to take a much awaited break and we decided to stay at this property as my colleague stayed here earlier and was happy. We were very happy with the service, staff and the location. Great place for kids as well. Will visit again. Try and get the package with food included.

lousy, unpalatable food. truly unbelievable how crappy it was. the fish fingers and chicken satay were left practically untouched, while the club sandwich would rate 2/10. the service matched the food ... we were first told only some items in one page of the menu were available, then when we pointed out that two entire pages were supposed to be...

I had planned to spend a long weekend with family here and visited. Overall experience has been good with comfortable stay and nice staff. Food was also good. Completely a colonial feeling. However - there is not much to do here - apart from stay in the room, indoor sports etc. There is no swimming pool or outdoor activities. The... More

We only stopped for lunch. Nice setting. Has old colonial feel. The waiters were very helpful and good. Had a good first impression. The hotel looks old and is similar to the Savoy in Ooty, but better maintained.

The Gateway Hotel in Coonoor was delightful when we visited it in July 2013. We managed to get a suite room with a garden area that was ideal for our family of four (two adults and two children aged 10 and 12 years). The surroundings were serene and appropriate to enjoy the beautiful flowers and the cool breeze of the... More
