“RAFFLES GATEWAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2011

we stayed there 2 nights, beginning and at the end of our holiday. It was good value with deluxe rooms. Also the short distance to the airport is a great +.
We had to clear some problems there and it is an easy walkway (for the big lugguage you need the shuttle).
We heard some planes, depending on the wind direction, but negligible.
Only one of our reservation was set on the wrong date, but I called beforehand to check it again...

We stayed at Raffles Gateway en route to Suva. We have stayed there several times before a few years back and this visit was similar. Location next to the airport is great, there is a shuttle but it is an easy walk. The room we had was small but adequate in size. The decor is looking very tired though and hasn't changed for a decade. Breakfast and dinner were distinctly poor value though with poor displays, Tang not juice, and insipid coffee and cold rolls. If you can get a local rate the room is good value but go elsewhere to eat. The Tokatoka (family) next door is better and only a little more expensive.

We stayed one night at Raffles Gateway after arriving at Nadi Airport and it was just perfect for what we wanted. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean and very good value. We would stay here again.

Me and my younger brother stayed in this hotel on our final leg of our vacation. The rooms are excellent and clean and the pool is well looked after everyday.

This is definitely a great hotel with one exception that HONESTY is not a big thing here..if you accidentally leave something in your room and check out, then you can forget about ever finding your item again as the cleaning people would keep it and say they didnt find anything in the room...great example my ipod was accidentally left in the room and i had checked out and flew back to new zealand. Realizing my mistake i had contacted the hotel straight away when i got home and was told the cleaning lady didnt find anything in the room...damn shame..

apart from this.. great hotel to stay in and very close to airport.

Great place to stay for a day or two - Good food and so easy to travel into Nadi via local bus or to get to the islands.

Never got into the pool sorry to say but looked awesome.

Band plays till 10.30 or 11 so if your having a early night bad luck ;-P There awesome but only have about 25 songs.

This was the second time we used Raffles for a stopover coming back home from an island holiday in Fiji. Last time was quite agreeable, so I decided to use Raffles again. Its close proximity to the airport and resulting fast transfer across is a bonus. We enjoy the pool and to be honest it is excellent value as a stopover hotel be it for a night or just a day room while you wait for your flight.

The rooms are adequately large for a short stay, with a good sized bathroom, coffee and tea making facilities and a small balcony. Our balcony faced towards the airport and was on the second floor, so we were afforded a bit of an outlook over the pool. The rooms have been spotlessly clean both times we have stayed.

Check in is fast and the staff have all been friendly. There is an internet kiosk near the restaurant which is available for a small charge. Also a small store for souvenirs etc.

We had a couple of meals at Raffles this time, lunch and dinner and to be honest we found the food to be to a high standard and of really good value. Serves were more than adequate.

The pool with its famous water slide is a great place to spend the hours waiting for your flight - I'd get a day room at Raffles rather than sit in the airport for a few hours, any day of the week!

Despite its proximity to the airport, noise does not seem to be an issue. The hotel was not very busy when we stayed - this was in early September.

We will most definitely use Raffles Gateway when we invariably head back to Fiji again, and we need either a day room or a short stay.
