The Gateway Hotel Church Road

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had been to Taj Gateway for a short stay during our trip to Nilgiris. It had the old world charm and the people were very warm. Overall good experience. Kids enjoyed the sports amenities, wish there was a temperature controlled pool, it would have been great for the kids. Food & the service were great.

This review is only for the restaurant at Gateway. We went for dinner here and opted for the buffet. There were about 4-5 veg and non-veg dishes each, in addition to rice and noodles. There were quite a few desserts as well. However, none of the dishes actually stood out. Everything was average including desserts. Service was prompt and good! But the food was really disappointing!

Hotel is well maintained. Guest services are excellent. Hotel staff are very nice, helpful and you always feel at home. Rooms are well maintained. Welcome drink is their speciality. Would like to visit again and again.

The Gateway hotel should be high on your list if you plan to visit Coonoor. The place is excellent, great facility but what is excellent is the staff at the property. The Taj has some amazing people, and they always go and above to make the trip really comfortable.

Heritage hotel at a serene location with good amount of green space. They have tried to restore the quaint look. The food is amazing and the staff is courteous, especially Mr. Sashi who entertained us with his juggling tricks at the Hampton Bar. Nice place to spend a relaxing vacation. A toy(old nilgiri railway coaches) train from coonoor to ooty is worth trying to get an experience of olden times and sneak into the hill areas not approachable by road.

Staff are very friendly and always willing to help. Gardens are beautiful. Check in and Check out was speedy. Breakfast is very average. Anandkumar is a good asset to the Taj Hotel. He was always friendly and smiling.

We had to organise a party at very short notice... some of the most professional staff present... helped all the way to planning small details... and called up when it rained to make alternative arrangements before party started... and my special thanks to the chefs for making a fantastic spread...cheers

Had an excellent time. A perfect get away. A very good location away from the normal tourist rush. An excellent heritage property, well maintained and very very helpful and Courteous staff that made us feel at home. Carry a book or some other activity just to unwind from daily routine stressful life. A three day stay will just rejuvenate you.

The staff is very supportive. The location of the hotel is really nice and peaceful. Anyone looking for relaxed trip and want to enjoy nature can really rely on this hotel. The regional food on the menu is a must try.

We had been on a hop-in-and-out-of-car after we left Green Nest at Kotagiri where we were staying. We were pecking and we wanted to go to a place without the hustle-and-bustle of tourist crowd. We zoned in on Taj Gateway in Conoor thanks to Trip Advisor. An old colonial building styled hotel, with lots of rosewood paneling, Taj Gateway looks very charming. The GAD restaurant, like rest of the Hotel is also wood-paneled. The chairs were very comfortable, and we felt good to after a tiring half-day pf sightseeing. The food was FRESH. We enjoyed, fresh tomato Rasam served as soup; The paneer melted in our mouths; Veg biriyani was fragrant and very tasty ! It was a nice an-hour-and-a-half. Burp!
