It was a pleasant stay at the Taj as always...the staff is friendly and helpful. The best part of the stay was the breakfast served in the restaurant that overlooks the lake - what better way to start your day! I would definitely consider going here when I am looking for a quiet and relaxing long weekend. Thanks to everyone at Taj Hubli who made my stay comfortable.

We stayed at Gateway Hotel Lakeside, Hubli on our way to Goa. This hotel is part of the Taj Group of hotels. They have built a new property here opposite the Unkal Lake. Stayed here for one night on our way to Goa. Buffet Breakfast served in the mornings at the Buzz Restaurant is very fulfilling. The view from the restaurant towards the lake is very pleasing in the mornings. Used the Swimming pool and Gym which is well maintained. Suggest any traveler to negotiate the stay package to include Free Internet and negotiate on Spa treatments. We stayed again for one night in this hotel on our way back from Goa, got the lake facing hotel on 3rd floor which has a sit-out. Front desk and Restaurant staff is well trained, expect a little slow service from the house keeping as they are limited. Best hotel to stay and explore the rich cultural heritage sites of Karnataka state - Hampi, Badami, Aihole and Pattadkal. Book a 3 nights stay and you will be able to cover all the worthy tourist spots.

Room Tip: Take a superior room facing towards the lake as it is more spacious than a standard room.

We were enroute from Bekal to Pune by road. The drive from Bekal to Hubli was almost 9 hours, and all of us were really tired when we checked in. I had booked two rooms through Agoda, and the check-in process was very smooth. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. Dinner was served promptly and we achieved our aim of a good night's rest. Breakfast next morning was a very well laid out buffet with a live 'Dosa' counter serving out delicious Dosa and Chutney. The check-out was also quick and efficient.
The Hotel is situated on the banks of the lake and offers a good view of Hubli. Recommend this hotel for stays at Hubli.

The reason I have titled this review as above is because I have never stayed at a Taj (Gateway) property that was so deserted! That too it was a long weekend - so it really surprised me!
Coming to the property itself - it used to be the Naveen - until the Taj took it over. I guess it can be positioned as a business hotel. And I suppose with quite a few big companies in the city - this is the place to stay for the expats.
They say it is a good halting point for those wanting to visit Hampi - I am not sure I will do that though - 3 hours of driving is a bit too much.
We were here on a drive back from Goa. (Apparently this is a common halting spot for folks travelling between Mysore/Bangalore and Goa/Pune/Mumbai). Its off the main highway i.e. the Hubli bypass road but not too difficult to find. It stands right beside the lake which makes some rooms pretty scenic. The room is well laid out and has all that you require and of the usual Gateway standard.
The services - valet parking, front desk, housekeeping and room service - all impeccable.
Definitely recommended, if you are looking for a hassle-free experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake facing room.

I booked this property directly with the the Gateway Hotel toll free number and the experience was very poor, as I had limited choice, had to take it. But the Checkin at Hotel was a breeze, rooms neat. Dinner and breakfast at the resturant was at best okay.

Taj gateway hotel is around 20 mins drive from hubli airport.Nice,clean and beautiful location near lake.Good display of hospitality and eagerness to serve experienced during the stay.Probably the best hotel in Hubli.

Housekeeping service was prompt.The bed was too soft and was uncomfortable to sleep.

We did not had that good experience during dinner.Dahi papdi chat was something unsual in taste and receipe.We found hair in dal fry/rice served!!Horrible!!We were not charged for both in the bill after sharing our expeirence.

Breakfast spread was ok only two cut fruits in fruit platter. Dosa and idli was tasty and having great real local taste and was very good!!Service was very good at Breakfast.

Overall not a bad experience and probably only one or one of the best option in Hubli to stay!!
