Excellent place to stay right on backwaters. Excellent hospitaly and lovely restaurant giving u the view of back waters and sea beyond ! The menu and the evening free boat ride must not be missed. Speed boat hired from hotel was a thrilling trip deep into backwaters

The taj group gateway hotel has to renovate this hotel , exterior and interior , the restrooms with their carrot coloured granite wash basins are probably decades old , the bubble cafe is aweful, the only plus point is the view from the rooms of the ocean , opt for higher floors , service is good

We were 2 couples with kids to bring in the New Years. The location of the hotel is absolutely fabulous. You can exit from behind the hotel and walk on to marine drive. The check in took longer than expected. Rooms are okay. Food is between average and good. We got a complimentary boat ride along with some evening tea/coffee/snacks... More

Only stayed at this hotel one night but could not fault it. Good clean room and nice view of sea. Ate in the Sian restaurant and enjoyed the food. Check in check out was good in fact I could find nothing to criticise on this one night stay.
