Gateway, Coonoor, is hands down the best hotel experience i have ever had. I have never come across staff - managers, waiters, housekeeping, gardeners who are so genuinely hospitable. It was truly a one of a kind, rare, beautiful experience. I will be visiting very often. Much love and regards to the staff at the hotel.

The service at Taj Gateway Coonoor was truly exceptional and I felt it was genuinely from the heart. The reception staff was especially brilliant. The property itself is quite charming with well maintained lawns and rooms that have the old world charm. Overall the hotel is an old colonial property and Taj has done a good job to bring life...

The Taj at Coonoor is a lovely property with a very understated old-world charm. It is the kind of place that reminds you that you are in the hills and you need to slow down. There is enough activity in the hotel to entertain you through the day. Also its location allows you to drive off into the tea estates... More

This hotel is busy on weekends with tourists. The grounds are beautiful and the staff pleasant and attentive. I may have been on business, but when I got back to the hotel it was as if I was on vacation.

I'm a Japanese living in India. Stopped here for lunch not staying. Small buffet was there. Not much selection, but still satisfactory varieties of dishes. And more importantly, they taste good. The service was good. The garden looks good.

A good property in a good location. Room could have been better. It was not up to Taj standards. The food choices in the Buffet were limited and the north Indian dishes were not up to the mark. Wellness Facilities (Ayurveda Massage) are really good. Hotel Staff is courteous.

Very nice hotel where rooms are spacious luxurious and well appointed. Food was awesome. The chef served us southindian home style dishes ( off the menu) on request and they tasted just as if they were cooked at home! The hotel staff took care of all our whims n fancies as if they were the norm!
