“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed March 31, 2011

Stayed for 6 nights in March 2011.

The room: Quite spacious and comfortable. Cleanliness was good, but not spotless. Oddly enough, they did not have sheets to fit the king sized bed. Linens were of ok quality with the odd stain and/or wear. No tub, but good water pressure and lots of hot water.

The food: Had the breakfast buffet mornings and a couple of supper time meals. Indian food quality was very good and they had a number of decent western options for when you were tired of the spice. Over all quite good.

The Service: Best part of the experience. The people were excellent. Extremely helpful and friendly.

I stayed in Gateway hotel on 21 and 22nd March 2011. The hotel is on the beach. The sea view from the hotel is excellent. Allmost all the rooms are sea facing. The service is of excellent quality. The menu in the restaurant is mouthwatering.
One thing worth mentioning is that the hotel does not provide free wifi or internet service, guest need to pay for it. Otherwise it is an excellent hotel for business or personal vacation trip.

My husband and I are regulars at the Gateway hotel. The best thing apart from location and a spectacular view (on the beach road), is the hospitality. The hotel staff is extremely accomodationg, whether relating to accomodation, room service, F&B, et al. It gives you the same warmth that any taj group hotel gives. The chinese restaurant has impeccable food and great service. The breakfast has a good variety of Indian as well as western dishes to choose from. The rooms have been remodelled recently and have a modern yet traditional feel. Amust stay if you're in Vizag

We booked this hotel form 13th Aug to 16th Aug 10. Rooms are see facing. it is not on beach but just neaxt to the road side of R.K. Beach. you will feel that it's TAJ (not there subsidiary). All services in this hotel were excellent. we enjoyed there a lot.

The loc is good, bang opposite the beach. The staff very pleasing. The rooms are a little too small ut comfortable. The room service is okay. The hotel has a gym and small swimming pool. For the price they charge i think its a good argain. However considering the TAJ tag , the rooms need to be done up a little. The linen was clean , though old. The best part is the food. The hotel has a great variety and the taste was excellent. Overall , you will get all your moneys worth. Recommended for business travel and short stays.
