Set in a very humble part of Kozhikode, the hotel does not look very promising from the outside. However, if you are in need of rest and homely pampering, this is an undiscovered gem. The staff were absolutely first class and you will find it a quaint and peaceful place if you want to escape from it all for a few days.

Given that the weather was very hot and there was not much to explore on foot, in the immediate vicinity, you can enjoy tasty local food and even the odd variation of Continental or North Indian or other World cuisine on request. As for the rest of the day, you can lol in absolute sloth in a fairly comfortable room, with comfortable Air-Conditioning, hot water for a relaxing bath and catch up on TV viewing or read a selection of newspapers from what's on offer at the reception area.

If you find the toilet flush or Air-Conditioning giving some trouble, the issue will be attended to with great speed and efficiency. The room cleaners were hard working and will ensure that your room is spic and span in the blink of an eye and with friendly smiles and cheerful efficiency.

The hotel has a bar which is very delicately positioned so that the inmates and the patrons of the bar do not need to cross each other. Thus, if you like your liquor, you can go to the conveniently located bar and have some beer and some very tasty snacks. I recommend the batter fried anchovies. It is not a place for women though, so if you are of the female persuasion, do ensure that you have a strong, sensible and grounded male partner, preferably a Malayalee to accompany you.

Again, should you be in search of an exotic experience, just across the hotel there is a Toddy place, set in a rustic and verdant nook. The toddy is fantastic and so are the snacks. But you will have to brave many tipsy red eyes if you chose to go across and get yourself some fine toddy to have in the cool decency of your room and that is not the least of the dangers. The hotel sits next to a narrow Highway and the traffic has no regard for anything.

Right next to the hotel, to your right as you exit is a little supermarket which, mostly has anything you might require. Since the main city was quite far away, I bought some halwas and fish pickles from there and they were pretty good. A tender coconut halwa was outstanding.

The manager, Mr. Manoj Babu was extremely decent and helpful. The Maitre D, Mr. Nasir, was worth his weight in gold. He will ensure that you get to eat just what you want with reasonable notice and will look after you with tender elegance. What more could one ask for when one weary night, we could get a hot khichadi?

This is a 5 star experience of hospitality at a very reasonable price. For me, I could get some well-earned rest and catch up on reading.

If you are looking to have a great time in the city, then the Calicut Gate hotel is the place to be. Ideally located close to all the major tourist attractions, the food is delicious especially the local Calicut special biryani. The rooms are very cosy and comfy. Rooms service is fine. The main attraction is the location of the hotel.

The gate hotel is situated in Calicut easy to reach from Calicut railway station and from Karipoor International Airport. The exterior look of hotel is in my way not at all good but the rooms and other services are quite impressive. The service persons and management are very friendly and good in personality. The food and drinks are very good with Kerala, Chinese and western dishes with low cost. Security was also impressive. The Kerala food is very spicy. The room is just awesome its like to sleep in my home. From gateway Calicut, I got brilliant experience from the entertainment program from there thus I'm really satisfied from gateway hotel Calicut.

Good location! Ideal to have a relaxing time. It has tasty and delicious food. Rooms are all spacious and hygienic. Located at a short distance from all the major tourist attractions. The rooms are not heavily priced. It can surely fit into anyone's budget. Surely, I will come here again.

We went on honeymoon trip and stayed in this hotel. The hotel was luxurious and to our utter surprise provided all the amenities available in five star hotels. Food was delicious & Staff was very cooperative. I would recommend everyone to stay in this hotel while they visit Calicut.

Normally I check ratings and reviews at tripadvisor before finalising on my stay at Hotels. Our business associate at Calicut took us to the Hotel and by mistake we said Yes and we regretted our decision. Check in was Ok. The property looks large, but rooms are small. I feel the hotel is normally used by people on the road and attached bars seems to be doing roaring business.
Room was just Ok to spend a night, but within minutes we found out that the fan above us is making irritating noise and flush at the washroom is not working properly. We highlighted the problem to Hotel authorities and within minutes they changed our room. Once inside room no.2, we found the flush here too is not working, after our complain no.2, they attended promptly again to fix the issue. We showed our unhappiness, and within minutes they upgraded us to their Suite Room without any additional charges. Suite room was just Ok to spend the night.
We had dinner in our room and food quality was just ok, nothing to write about.
#Staff at the Hotel is very friendly, they tried their best to make our stay comfortable.
We decided to have our breakfast at better place in the morning and we have not regretted
Our decision as food close to the hotel was sumptuous.:).
Overall this hotel just meets expectation of business traveller with less expectation and which
takes less out of your pocket.
