Food is very ordinary in compare to other hotels especially regional south Indian dishes are very less in breakfast, lunch and dinner. Taj gate way , Vijayawada , it is the best food compare to other taj hotels fulfilling the requirement of regional i.e. south Indian dishes and as well as other north Indian dishes.
Planned to visit Vizag for few days, had the option of The Taj Gateway and The Park. However, based on feedbacks,reviews and personal experience of having stayed at other Taj properties earlier,we went ahead n booked with Taj.And it was indeed the right decision. Got a sea facing room as requested,prima facie- the room was nice , offering view of the Bay of Bengal. The decor was minimal with the writing table( a major turn off as it was one of the centre piece of attractions) & side table both needing a fresh coat of polish. We ordered room service during lunch since my wife was not feeling well. The staff while delivering the food realised that my wife was not keeping well, n called their house keeping head 'Sudha'. She and her staff were so helpful n supportive that she spoke to the'Doctor on Call' n arranged for the doctor visit,got us the medicines from the nearby store and arranged for steamer and everything was done in the shortest possible time. The entire staff thereafter looked after us -be it during dinner,lunch or breakfast, also whenever they met my wife,they always enquired bout her well being. We were really pleased n happy with their hospitality. The food was also really nice,go for their South Indian spread,its authentic n good. Behaviour of the staff was impeccable at all places. Really happy with the overall experience.
We stayed at The gateway hotel for three nights last week, and felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The hotel itself is nice, and the room was clean and spacious. The food was great, we had both breakfast and dinner at the hotel restaurant, and also ordered room service a few times -food was delivered after few minutes. Location is also good, near one of the beaches and there are shopping centres within a few minutes drive from the hotel. The staff was extremely helpful; everyone from the security staff outside the door to the people in the reception and the housekeeper. One episode illustrated this helpfulness well: We were attending a wedding some 20-30 minutes outside the city, and in the middle of the night needed to get back to the hotel. Uber didn't work on any of our cellphones, and so we called the hotel receptionist who managed to find a car to pick us up. He was also helpful with finding us another driver for the return trip to the wedding a few hours later. We had a great stay at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good hotel in Visakhapatnam.
We have stayed at the Taj Gateway many times and the staff and the location never disappoint. It is steps away from the beach and taking early morning walks on the boardwalk is amazing. The staff is exceptional. As soon as we got out of our car the lovely security lady and gentlemen greet you with a big smile. This continud throughout our trip. Check in and check out was a breeze. At our request we got a great sea facing view. The staff at breakfast was amazing and the spread is even more so. Every morning we got to taste new juices and a large variety of healthy foods like whole grain dishes. The regular breakfast fare was also there in great abundance. The icing on the cake on this visit was Fishy Friday. That day there was a large variety of fresh fish that was cooked to order. The choices were great, pomfret, grouper, red snapper, king prawns etc. A wonderful experience indeed. Paidi Baabu at the bar makes a mean cocktail and takes special care of his guests. We have now become friends with him since we come often. A big cheer to him. My only gripe about this hotel is that the rooms are beginning to look very old and weary. They need a major makeover. The carpets and upholstery are worn and the furniture is really beat up. This hotel has all the right ingredients but it needs a major makeover.
Taj gateway continues to be our preferred hotel for stay at vizag. Their hospitality remains the best. I end up doing 2-3 months stay and now even on a five day stay they have made us fell right at home. Sumit, nafisha, Roy, the executive chef, guards are polite and extremely helpful. The food is excellent with a varied spread and the chef also on requests always surprises us with his dishes. The rooms are clean and provide an excellent view of the beach. Would recommend the hotel to every person. Cheers
I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions. I like most the location of this hotel just facing the sea side. Post dinner I go for a walk across the beach. The Hotel people are courteous and friendly. The usual breakfast starts at 7 am in the Hotel. One morning I had to leave the hotel before 7 am to reach client site (which was 60 km from Vishakhapatnam). The front desk arranged fruits for me so that I can have my breakfast on my way. Also, if one wants to do shopping then the shopping complexes are at a distance of 4-5 km from the hotel.
More than just the hotel per se, I found the employees right from the porter at the door to the security man, from the Chef to the barman very warm and attentive. I was not impressed with the reception employees who were quite cosmetic in approach but all of the others were great. I wish to particularly thank Venkatesh who was the housekeeping chap on my floor (3rd floor) who never failed to wish or ask a simple question enquiring about my comfort in the room..........
Nice and comfortable stay, extremely friendly staff, nice restaurants, nice garden, nice pool, gym and spa. Room and amenities were excellent. 100% value for money and would recommend this hotel to all.
Very good location in the heart of the city. Rooms are neat and comfortable. Staff are courteous and knowledgeable. Food is good with lot of choices and excellent taste. Prompt response on services. Quick checkin and check out.
The rooms were excellent and the restaurants outstanding. Very impressive lay out and spread for the breakfast with a good mix of continental and South Indian dishes. Good standard of hygeine and interior ambience.
