My wife and I spent 3 nights at this hotel and on checking in we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a suite. The reception staff were very courteous and helpful and we were given a very fast check in. The suite was exquisite with all facilities and very well maintained and furnished. The housekeeping service was excellent. Most importantly, the rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and the sleep quality was very good. The only note of dissent was the enormous time to get hot water in the shower probably due to the long pipeline it had to traverse from source. The breakfast was superb with a lot of choice and with local specialities - try the appam with vegetable stew. Overall, a fantastic experience.
We stayed at the Gateway Hotel on our way from north Kerala to south Kerala so it was only for one night and we didn't have any expectations as we were only passing through. Howeverthe hotel is really nice and everyone on the staff that we meet from the reception, to the pool, the entrance guard and the staff at breakfast were fantastic. We travelled with kids and the staff went out of their way to make the kids feel good. Playing with them, getting ballons, finding toys for the pool or just smiling and being friendly. The rooms are nice, but having traveled around Kerala, somewhat smaller than your used to (although they are standard sized). Everything very clean and the breakfast was really nice. Only a 5-10 minutes walk to the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a hotel in Kozhikode.
The location is good. Maintenance is very poor. The rooms upkeep is bad, The rooms are in size and amenities, but very poor in maintenance, the tiles in the bathroom are cracked, the sink is old and dirty. There is too much noise made by house keeping at night. The house keeping was doing the room at around 1 am, too much noise and one cannot sleep. The food quality is good, but very poor menu in buffet dinner or even the ala carte. The apam was good, but no stew to go with. The bar menu did not have most of the items, and the explanation given was we are out of stock. Not at all justifying the Taj brand overall.
Last Christmas....we had visited the hotel...very good place dinning next to the pool side...fantastic range of food spreads...I am sure the ..Gourmet lovers will enjoy the delicacies..My family enjoyed being at the Christmas eve dinner !!
Despite the fact that it was my first time in India, the staff were exceeding expectations and provided me with everything I needed with a very short time. Even there was a new trainee "Vishnu" his name was he was very friendly. Do I recommend this particular hotel? Yes I do regardless of the things that needs to be improved. The wifi is abit complicated and needs few minutes till it connects otherwise no problems faced at all.
Recently went for their sizzlers fest it was great they recently renovated and before they used to have Street food fest on Fridays I'm not sure they still have it, their rooms are pretty antique type and very clean their ayurvedic massage spa is amazing you really can soothe ur soul and one of my Arab friend he did a 15 days course including diet and massage and had lost around 5-6 kgs They serve alcohol in the restaurant, Their New year Party is something which is like really happening thing in Calicut on New Year Eve.
It was a great evening for us since it was our new product launch. The hotel offers a medium size banquet which accommodated around 200 guests. The food was good. Wallet parking. Very helpful staff!!!
What a wonderful stay. We had a family visit to the hotel for 4 nights. Its so centrally located that everything is 15 minutes max. Be it fhe beach. Be it business related. Be it the temples. 5 minutes quick walk from the beach. Service is the best in this hotel. Lead by the dynamic general manager. Vikas. And his wonderdul team. A lot of team members served us with a smile. Nothing was a bother for them. Thats what Taj is known for and these associates truely reflect the values of the taj. Nandu. Manu. Sanket. Babu.binu. julie.sanjay. and many staff from heart of the house who made our stay wonderful. Amazing and will defenitely return.
Lovely, decent property.. Few minutes walk from the beach. The staff were extremely professional and helpful. Excellent buffet breakfast. Priyanka during breakfast service was amazing. Always ensured we were taken care of. Good wifi signal in the rooms. Unfortunately we were staying for a conference at the hotel so the timings did not allow us to try out the spa treatments. Would definitely visit again to try it out.
Stayed for 3 Nights on a business trip along with my Father & a Foreign Client. The Quality of Room, The Location, The Service Provided & The Professionalism of hotel staff was beyond excellence. It truly lived up to its “TAJ” brand. I personally thank Mr. Sanjay P.R (Front Office Manager) & Mr. Binaj (Front Office) for their amazing hospitality & friendliness. Buffet Breakfast and Sunday Buffet Brunch at CAPE COMORIN restaurant were marvelous. Very much appreciate Chef Binu for personalizing our delectable Sizzler we had for dinner. The restaurant staff was remarkably courteous, with a special mention of Mr. Vishnu Sugathan. We had an enjoyable & memorable stay; I recommend this hotel for both families and business travellers.
