From booking the rooms to checking out, it was a smooth and pleasant experience. Warm, courteous and polite staff provided excellent service. Good location which was easily accessible to all modes of transport. Good value for money. We had breakfast and dinner there and it was superb. Will definitely visit again to enjoy the Taj hospitality which was delivered at its finest. Highly recommended. A big thanks to the staff for making our stay pleasant and enjoyable.
Mine was a professional visit arranged by my company. The hotel is located in the main city area and has superb accessibility to all kinds of shops, malls and transport modes. There was a lavish spread of buffet during breakfast and dinner. The Mangalorean fish curry stole my heart. The swimming pool is very nicely maintained. But the best part was the cosiness of my room. It's amazing. The hotel staff was very nice and service was prompt. Any problem cropping up was handled amicable. Full credit to the staff. This is the best hotel in Mangalore so I would advice people to book well in advance as there is always a rush. Looking forward to the next time at the hotel. This time I wish to have a room facing the swimming pool.
From booking the rooms to checking out, it was a smooth and pleasant experience. Warm, courteous and polite staff provided excellent service. The hotel is a standalone building with small swimming pool. Breakfast needs to improve little. Rooms need to be updated. There are two types of room one facing sea and one on town. You should prefer sea side.
This is a standard, functional hotel. We stayed here as we were waiting for a flight at the airport. The room was clean, though on the smaller side. It had the basic amenities but nothing out of the ordinary. The staff at the front desk I must say were extremely helpful and tried their level best to help us out. We had been staying at a different Taj and were sent to stay at this hotel due to a transport strike in the state on the day before our flight, so the front desk staff did their best to help us with the situation. This is a value for money hotel, with no frills.
I had a great experience at the Gateway Hotel in Mangalore. I was only there for 24 hours and the staff at the hotel provided us a room on the first floor. We didn't have a great view from the room, but the room was very clean and so was the bathroom. The hotel was located close to the railway station and city center, so it was conveniently located. I used the pool at the hotel very briefly, and it was quite nice. The only thing is that I would do differently next time is ask for a room on the higher floors. What the hotel lacked for in any department, it made up for with exemplary service! Enjoyed my stay!
It was a business trip in the month of November. The destination was excellent. The location of the hotel was good as it was located in the centre area of the city and it could be reached easily. The exterior and interior portions of the hotel were well designed. The front office staff's were excellent and cooperative. The room was also excellent as it was very spacious, clean and tidy. The all services were very good and they responded quickly for the service request. The all other activities like swimming pool, spa was good. The food was good and breakfast was complimentary.

The Gateway is one of the oldest hotels in Mangalore. Used to be a different ownership back in the day and was taken over by Taj few years ago. Over the years the ranking of the hotel has been steadily rising and the reason is the management. The staff for one is extremely courteous and ever smiling. The check-in and checkout process was smooth, and the room was compact but good. A very comfortable mattress and a small sofa. Flat screen TV, tea maker, mini bar and toiletries kit were available to make your stay comfortable. The bathroom had a tub as well. The buffet breakfast by the poolside was quite good. Nice variety, both south Indian and a bit of continental staples like breads, eggs, bakery items, baked beans, sausages, cornflakes etc. The variety and taste were very good. Used to have a good leisurely breakfast every day before stepping out. Pricing is on the higher side considering its an old property but they do have some corporate discounts. As always a nice and pleasant stay at the Taj.
