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.

right from the welcome to check out it was a superb experience. The spicy welcome drink opened our senses and the chef was kind enough to even share his recipe. they have a kitchen garden where they grow their own vegetables.Make sure you check that out because you will see some exotic plants.

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

We visited Coonoor just this past weekend in a large group of 6 families (18 members). We had an excellent time at the Gateway and I would recommend it most wholeheartedly to anyone visiting. The whole resort has a gabled roof picturesqueness which I find particularly endearing in hill stations. The room allocated to us was large and spacious and... More

I stayed here this weekend and I was more than delighted with the service. The staff is very generous and friendly. I highly recommend this Hotel for stay if you want to relax away from the crowded Ooty, but in equally cool place.

It is really a nice beautiful property in Coonoor, and I felt that it is little different from other normal typical resorts/business hotels. I visited with my family, and I liked this place overall, specially because it was close to many places in coonoor and you can visit other attractions easily. Few of the rooms are bigger, so just check... More

I am writing this review immediately after coming back from my vacation to conoor/ooty. I made a right choice of staying at Conoor and at Taj gateway.
