Stayed in Hotel Gateway for a day during January 2017.Except the fact that the pricing is too expensive , nothing negative can be said. Moreover, I am aware of the pricing strategy for a high end hotel. But it's a bit too much for a place like Coonoor.

The best thing about the hotel was the lovely staff. Especially the restaurant staff. We were on a half board package and the evening food was a dream. Great recommendations from the staff too. The room was lovely and big, and so much character. A spacious bathroom helped too. The hotel is situated up a hill about 5 minute driver...

Love this property for its gardens, helpful staff and great food Room and bed felt a bit small to us but the bathroom was really big. Proximity to SIMS park was a plus as I could go there for a walk every morning.

My husband had visited here as a youngster, so good to return as a 60 year old! Very comfortable, clean, quiet and cosy room. Lovely garden area to sit outside in (complete with monkeys!) Tasty buffet dinner, great help and suggestions from the waiting staff.

The Taj Gateway was very poor value for money with a BLOWER as a heating source. I expect that in a 1 star hotel and not in a Taj hotel. I have a lot of respect for the Taj name so this was a complete disappointment. I think its bad ridiculously overpriced for the period between Dec 15th and Jan...

We visited Coonoor and stayed at the Gateway during Christmas, and it was an extremely enjoyable stay. To begin with Coonoor is quieter and less congested than Ooty, and is better for relaxing. The Gateway is an ideal choice for just chilling out. The building has been not been tampered with, and it retains as much of it's older structure...
