Very friendly staff, perfect holiday destination. Nice big rooms and comfortable. Well maintained and close to the nature. The buffet breakfast spread is one of the best. We also tried the dinner buffet one of the nights and happy with the spread

It is a very well maintained property with lots of activities (cricket, badminton, billiards, indoor games, bicycles etc.) for the entire family. The staff is also very helpful and courteous. Food is also nice. We enjoyed our stay.

It is an old but well maintained property by Taj. The place is really calm and quiet where you can enjoy and relax. The hotel has the best of facilities. We stayed in the hotel from 5th Feb 2015 to 8th Feb 2015 during our Honey Moon Trip. They have a nice Spa and Yoga place. You must interact with... More

We went on a leisure trip with family to Coonoor and The Gateway Hotel made sure it was a memorable one. Right from checkin to checkout and everything in between was just fab, so much so that my 5 year old only talks about the Hotel to anyone and everyone he meets. There was a small Playcard with flower on... More

I traveled with friends and stay in one of the suite rooms, which was very spacious. The bathroom was big and cozy. It was wonderful experience staying at this historic property. The check-in was very smooth. We were welcomed warmly with garlands and great aromatic welcome drink, which we ordered twice to room.

Great getaway. Very nice property tucked away in the Nilgiris, ideal for short breaks, away from the madding crowds. The hotel staff is very efficient and well groomed to provide outstanding stay and F&B experience. This has grown to become one of my most favourite destinations.

This is an old property which has been very well maintained. The rooms are not air-conditioned but they are big and classy. If you feel cold you can light a fire and bask in it. The food is good and the hospitality is awesome. Taj knows how to treat their guests.

This is a perfect base for a hill station retreat, away from the bustle of Ooty. This is a converted 19th century convent & colonial house. Rooms are actually suites.

We arrived at the Taj two weeks ago after a very long, tiring drive. The sun had set over the hills and a hauntingly beautiful mist had settled in the distance.
