The Indian specialty chefs Mr.Bharathi dasan & Mr.Dramendar, were exceptionally taking good care of us in dining. I was on business trip. The days stayed in your hotel was memorable. I am one of your frequent visitor to Hotel Gateway. Your staffs either at reception or at dining both were real welcoming. Looking forward for more visits & stays.
