Hotel is located at near Ooty and the location provides very scenic and beautiful surroundings. Location provides peaceful and a great place to rewind yourself on a long weekend. The rooms are refurbished old heritage and give an experience to stay in a colonial ambiance.

Stayed in these wonderful colonial property of taj gateway in Coonoor. It's Conveniently located and set in a property that is about 150 years old colonial bungalow spread over a few acres, it's calming , stunning and wonderful misty views, and fresh verdant gardens makes you want to go back again and again. Food is outstanding , every meal was delicious and varied, service is excellent, ever friendly staff and the rooms are so spacious , large and well equipped with all modern amenities. Probably this is amongst one of the top places to stay while in Coonoor. And of course how can I forget their Spa. It's a must visit for some R and R.....

I visited Ooty this year for winter vacation & New year celebration,& on way back we stayed at this wonderful place with my family.And we were thinking we should have stayed all through out at Gateway Coonoor.
Although we were much before our check-in time, we were extended a warm welcome by the manager, and restaurant manager was also kind enough to offer us buffet breakfast beyond its closing time at arrival and again early at 7:00AM next day at check-out. Not only this they also agreed to give us packed lunch early in the morning for our journey to Coimbatore and beyond.
It is an old Heritage kind of property with lot of greenery & gardens
Good value for money.

We chose to stay here so as to be bit away from the crowds of Ooty as well as to have a memorable vacation. This turned out to be more than expected, different from usual Taj experience (of Star categories) with a touch of Royalty, Heritage, huge lawn space for families to get together and enjoy like a weekend farmhouse stay. The staff here were very courteous, cooperative and extremely prompt in attending to every request. The rooms were very spacious. It is quite well located though close to the Coonoor centre as well as Sims Park junction with nice restaurants in the vicinity in case you choose to eat outside. The dinner buffet has a good spread and decently priced for a vacation location as well as the breakfast has a vast spread of south Indian delicacies to relish your taste buds.

I stayed at the Gateway Hotel for 2 days this last week. We had to change hotels last minute and the Gateway proved to be leaps and bounds ahead of what we had expected or imagined. The staff is very very helpful, warm and polite. The property has the most beautiful sprawling gardens. It is maintained very well, the rooms are warm, cozy and have an old world charm. The service is very prompt, the food delicious (recommend the eggs!).
I would also recommend the Spa - which is very soothing, neat and one of the best spa experiences I have had.
Overall - I would say don't go anywhere else at all. Forget the offbeat and wilderness- this is the place to stay. It is well connected, offers all that you need, is quiet and beautiful.

One of the finest heritage hotels the Gateway group has, this facility is located in a serine place away from the hustle bustle of a city near the famous tea gardens and SIMS Park area of Coonoor. It is located 18 kms from Ooty and 3 kms away from Coonoor bus stop.

The cottages as they call are great, all of them have a British style colonial set-up with induvidual private gardens. The staff are very courteous and have hospitality is amazing.Worth all the money spent.

Room Tip: Please ask for an upgrade in the non peak season as occupancy is not so great
