This was my 4th Stay and an excellent again. Nice rooms and very supportive staff from front desk, restaurant and safari. Kids activities/area needs improvement. Recommend to use Gypsy from Gateway hotel rather than booking office.

We stayed for 2 nights. the check in was smooth our room was ready when we arrived. we booked the package include all meals. the size of rooms were small. But the bedding & the accessories were very good.the taste of the food was very nice. overall all the staff was helping nature & friendly. the hotel is the near the safari office so it was very convenient in the morning if you choose early safari.

Check in was good Ynus & Pratap helpful. Food also good. Room worst SPA & Pool worst. TV not working till check out. Washroom poor cleaning Overall not happy will not recomand to any one. We can get good hotel in Gir in bit cheper.

We spent 3 wonderful nights hère Our suite was fabulous Furnished to a very high standard and the bathroom was excellent with good amenities We had 2 sit out areas overlooking the river and the forest The food was delicious and good portions Their all in rate is excellent value dont hesitate book full board The location could not be bettered it is right next door to the entrance of the National Park I have left the best till last THE STAFF and SERVICE The service was second to none and all of the staff were professionnel but friendly and extremely helpful I have one disappointment We didnt sée any lions and one regret I forgot to buy my lion t- shirt at the hotel shop! We would highly recommend The Gateway Gir Forest

Stayed in their Superior Room during our recent visit to Sasan Gir. The property is quite old but very well maintained. The rooms are old fashioned but spacious with all the necessary comforts and amenities. The service is excellent. Very polite and helpful team. Would specially like to thank Mr. Divya Pratap and Mr. Younus from their front office team and the two gentlemen who served us during the breakfast and lunch service for taking really good care of us. The food during all three buffet meals was delicious with a good variety on offer. I felt that their rates are a bit overpriced, especially considering the market and competition around them. Didn't feel the value for money that we paid for our stay. The river that you see in the photos is non-existent so please do not be taken by that. The location is definitely the best in Sasan Gir as they are located right next to Sinh Sadan where you got to report for the Safari and also quite nearby the Jungle Trail. Overall, I would recommend staying with them if you manage to get a good package.

Quiet property with an excellent staff.They go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.Food customisations as per your requirement,Safari customisation as per your requirement and added to it your evenings and mornings are spent being pampered by your own local troupe of singers.Trust me , you do feel like a king here... Here is one pic of the singers I had taken then.

Nice modern hotel near the Gir national park, good to be able to enjoy top facilities and efficient bathroom plumbing after staying previously at some older heritage properties. My room from memory was on the 3rd floor, with a little balcony to enjoy the peace. I took advantage of the spa for a massage and used the swimming pool. The dining room had both indoor and outdoor seating. There was a good variety of food both Indian and Western and staff were efficient and friendly. Local musicians were pleasant to listen to and there were African fire eaters and dancers one evening for entertainment.

Great place for Family Outing. Calm Gateway is the answer. Well done Rooms, courteous staff. calmness in midst of nature. Safari is less than a minute. Food is good. Evening flok music adds to the flavour.

We spent two nights at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room needed some TLC but the wonderful view from our balcony over the Forest more than made up for it. The food and service were good and Reception staff were very helpful. We took an early morning Asiatic Lion safari which was a waste of time and money. Our guide wasn't interested and spent the whole journey talking to the driver. This is not the hotel's fault but we wanted to warn future safari goers.

I had booked a deluxe suite for our stay in feb. The suite actually had 2 bedrooms and a living room. It was quite spacious, which was good since we were 3 people. It was not quite clear to me at the time of booking that the suite will have 2 bedrooms, so it was a nice surprise to see 2 bedrooms. The hotel is also located conveniently to the forest information center, so getting permits and gypsy for the Safari is convenient. The entrance to the forest reserve is also close. There is also an alligator conservation park right next to the hotel, which is also an inter attraction. The food in the restaurant is amazing and the service is even better. Appu and Zahid in the restaurant take excellent care of you from the moment you are in the restaurant and are helpful even for anything else you need. Highly recommend for your stay in Gir!
