Our decision to stay at the Gateway Rawalkot was based on someone from the family suggesting it and the fact that my wife could get a decent discount, given she works for the parent group of Gateway Hotels.
We stayed here for 2 nights and had 3 rooms, in one block of the hotel. I loved the way the hotel has been laid out, with blocks of 3 rooms around a main courtyard. Rooms are on 2 levels and I strongly recommend that you take the ground level rooms and not the basement level. The basement level seemed pretty dark and depressing, although the rooms were the identical. The hotel also has tents in its backyard, and given that the rooms are at the same price, it is much more comfortable and clean.
The hotel has some 30-40 rooms, one restaurant, and a spa. We didn't have time to check out the spa but we did have 3 meals at the restaurant. The dinner we ordered was a-la-carte and was overpriced for the quality and portions served. The taste was slightly off-cue and we didn't think much of it. The breakfast was hearty and the staff offered to make fresh dosas, parathas, eggs, etc. The drinks were not upto the mark - alcoholic drinks seemed diluted, and my fresh orange juice had a very strong garlic flavor.
The hotel is decent value for money and has good amenities. Room and loo was very clean and the staff courteous. The location is slightly a disadvantage (outside the main town), but everything else seemed prett ygood.
