I went to Coonoor with my family, as always stayed in Taj. The room number I got was 109, room was good, spacious and bathroom was good as all taj rest room are excellent. I didn't like the food as the breakfast variety was not as expected and not like other Taj's group and menu for dinner is ok types. Service was good. No dental kit was provided, no extra soap in bathroom, never expected this type of service.

We had a wonderful weekend at the Taj Garden, Coonoor. The hotel had offered a peaceful stay amidst the soothening beauty of nature. The service provided by the hotel's personnel was the best. Our stay was eventful with various activities like magic show, horse riding, indoor and outdoor games etc. We really enjoyed the stay and would like to visit the place again.

This hotel is just at the start of Ooty city. Its an average hotel. The food served was very bad. So better eat outside. The rooms are just average and the Toilets are not so clean. Its not worth paying so much for an average hotel like this. So I would suggest find a different hotel.

Coonoor is good and peaceful place. It is not crowded like your usual tourist spot but has some good places to see. Its like any colonial hill station and The Gateway hotel is one of the best places to stay here. Hotel is close to pretty much all sites, some of them are even at walking distance.The property commands a really good view. It is one of those serene and quaint kind of guest house up in hills. The staff is very friendly and efficient however since it is an old property the rooms are understandably spartan bordering ugly however the rest of the property and view make up for the room.
Food is good however i guess due to off season I did not find much variety in the menu. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

This is the best hotel in Coonoor. The staff is very helpful. The food used to be great but during my last visit, it wasn't that great.Very nice lawn with a bonfire, very nice in the late evenings.Pillows, blankets and mattress should be changed to new ones.

It does not have the luxury or the glittering effect of a Taj hotel but has a cool Rustic Ambiance. Located in Koonur, I would say it is the best place to stay in Koonur and would highly recommend anybody to come here as I rate Koonur any day better than Ooty. The cottage rooms are excellent with a fireplace and decent service.

Taj has really maintained this property well. We went to Ooty but decided to stay at Coonor as its less crowded and place is more beautiful. Excellent property of Taj.
Rooms and bathrooms are very spacious. Wooden flooring, great interiors, excellent toilets with king size bath tubs. Its very relaxing outside and so peaceful. Its magical with the fog all around you.
Staff is very friendly and polite. We were travelling with my kid, so they customized our food to our preference. Food is excellent and served hot even when we ordered for room service.
Excellent stay and we loved the experience, have also recommended my friends and family to stay at taj, coonor

Conoor is undoubtedly the place for a relaxation trip & this hotel is one of the best properties in Conoor. They have an awesome pool and lawn - both of which face the valley & both in clouds! :) superb place to relax & enjoy with family

Food is great and service is very nice. They organize bonfire at night but the service at the bonfire wasn\'t good enough. They also have an activity center but the place is for people who want to relax rather than go on an adventure

It is some 3-hr journey uphill from Coimbatore airport and has 14 hair pin bends - advisable to be prepared.
