They are professionals. Everyone out there is ready to help, Front Desk, Resturant, Staff. Its difficult but they do it well. Sometimes the hotel becomes crowded due to functions buts thats fine as far as someones comes to you.
Keep it up!!!!!

Room Tip: Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Take a river view room

This property lacks the Taj Feel. Though the recetion the lobby is well designed the rest of the hotel fails to stay up as per the expectations.
Thr rooms in the old wing are terribly old fashioned.
The restaurant that claims to serve authentic gujarati thali is mere flop show and dissappointing.
However the buffet breakfast is quite well laid.

This was my first experience staying at a "Gateway" class Taj. If you're expecting the usual Taj luxury, you'll be disappointed. It was a comfortable stay. Relatively small and slightly worn property. Rooms were acceptable. Location felt remote but rickshaws were available outside so getting around wasn't an issue (at most 20 mins to the usual places you'd want to go to). The airport transfer charges at the hotel were double so if you can, arrange alternate transportation. NOTE: If you choose to get a taxi from the airport to the hotel you'll have to hurry out as there's only a limited number of taxis available, especially at odd hours. The breakfast spread was delicious and varied. Breakfast choices & staff get 5 stars, front desk 4 and the property / rooms / location 3.

Make sure you go to Sasumaa's restaurant for an authentic thali experience!

I have stayed at the Gateway a few times now and have never been disappointed.

The front of house staff have always extended me the very warmest of welcomes, and I've always been impressed by the upkeep of this place and the quality of the rooms, including their size.

However my principal accolade is for the food - the range is excellent and the buffets therefore do not disappoint. After a good night's sleep the breakfast really is a welcome start to the day.

I should also add that the location is great - right in the vibrant heart of Surat. While I don't visit Surat as much as I would like, I hope to return.

As with all Taj properties, the service levels are impeccable, right from the security guard to the front desk to the housekeeping guys. I have stayed at Gateway properties earlier, and you know exactly what to expect when you enter one. Never a disappointment.
