I stayed in this hotel for almost 11 days. The Hotel is comparatively bigger with lawns and greenery all around. The Hotel staff is quite hospitable and cooperative. Inspite of limited availability of rooms for continuous 10 days, the room was initially allotted for two days with a caution to a probability to shift out of hotel for at least... More

From Madurai in Tamil Nadu, to Karnataka you have to pass by the famous Hill Stations in the mysterious Nilgiri (blue) Mountains. One of the best stops is the Taj Gateway Hotel in Coonoor. Situated just outside town in a historical setting, this hotel reminds you of its great past. Giant rooms with open fireplaces and a very nice restaurant.... More

The room was superior with an anteroom then bedroom. It is an old hotel that has been refreshed nicely maintaining the charm of the facilities. The anteroom has a desk and a sofa. The bedroom had a king size bed also with a sofa. Because of the altitude, there is no A/C. But there is a space heater to warm... More

This is one of my favorite places to visit in Coonoor. The charm, the elegance, the cozy feel, the professional manner of the staff. It's a great place to "retire" to when you had a long day trekking or want to get away from the bit more crowdy Coonoor streets. Personally I did not stay there, but had together with... More

By now, we have explored all the better hotel options in Coonoor area, and I must say the Gateway is by far the best. I will restrict the review to "operational" matters, since others have already commented. On the location, architecture,etc. 1. "Works as advertised". To our surprise, and yes it is a surprise in India, the restaurant had everything... More
