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.
This review can't explain my feelings about the Gateway Hotel in Mangalore, because it's unexplainable and inexpressible. I have booked a standard non smoking room, the room was well kept and clean. We feel that we are at our own home. The toilets were very clean and had provided with various toiletries even a hair dryer. The room was spacious with an office desk and a couch and it also had the basic amenities like extra pillows, extra blankets, coffee makers and some eatables. The flooring were made of wood. The room offered a view of both city and the Mangalore old port. There was no disturbances from the outside or inside premises of the hotel, it was really quiet and will definitely get a peaceful stay. The hotel provides complimentary breakfast for four people, complimentary wi-fi for four devices and complimentary usage of swimming pool. The hotel staff were very courteous, helpful and well behaved. Some of the staff named jose thomas, ramesh were at the reception they were very helpful and staff named amresh, mukesh etc at restaurant were also good. Overall all the staff were very much helpful and very courteous. No doubt at all. The restaurant cardamom was an awesome place for food, it's arranged in a good way with both table - chair combinations and couch - table combinations. The restaurant provides all kinds of drinks, red vines like sule vines. We had vegetable biriyani, murg biriyani, chilli paneer, murg angara tikka, cold coffee and gulab jamun. The food was really tasty, freshly prepared, mouth watering and off course its delicious and awesome. In the morning the buffet breakfast was provided at the cafe near the pool. It offers a good pool view and is well spacious. The hotel offered a wide variety of south indian, north indian and continental food for the buffet breakfast. For the morning bed coffee they provide some beautifully made chocolate and masala cookies. The hotel offers a business centre with a high speed internet connectivity, a book shop and off course a large souvenir shop. Overall the best awesome good hotel to stay at Mangalore away from city but close to city. I will strongly recommend the travelers the Gateway Hotel because it is a home sweet home which offers a very peaceful stay. I will also tell the travelers that this hotel offers the very best, awesome and mindblowing stay. Comfort and off course the mouth watering and delicious food in Mangalore. I will definitely stay at the Gateway Hotel in the future.

Hotel - This hotel exceeded my expectation, it went above and beyond the usual Taj service. The hotel is in need of an upgrade but the service excellence. Service - The restaurant breakfast buffet was excellent, the staff were so kind they even packed my 2 year old toddler some food. The day of our arrival it was Hyderabad food festival in the restaurant which was an amazing spread of dishes. There was a sizeable number of guests who were from outside and not staying at hotel. Room - The rooms were very clean and linen service was superb. They remembered our request for extra towels every time. The showers in the toilet are beyond words. The check in/check out process was flawless. Overall a restful stay and as usual wonderful Taj experience.
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.
My overall experience was good. Location was best. Appearance of the hotel was fine. I faced no problem during check in and check out. Staff behavior was helpful and friendly. Staff services were excellent. Rooms were spacious and well maintained. No view was visible from hotel rooms. I did try food in the hotel. Food was delicious. Only swimming pool was there. Bangalore is a beautiful place as tourist destination. It was a beach type holiday. I went there with my family in the month of May 2014.
