A great oasis.

Posted Jan 16, 2018
Pros: Staff, management, grounds, food.
Cons: Wi-Fi.
Location: Off the main round in lovely grounds. Hampi with its magnificent temples is just up the road.
A good hotel for access to Hampi. Good staff and restaurant in a well-managed facility. Rooms are spacious and the bathroom facilities acceptable. Grounds provide a good outlook, though the approach is somewhat unprepossessing. The managers have a progressive eco attitude and employ local people which is laudable but can make English language conversations difficult. Happy to recommend and to return. Better than Clark's Inn in Hampi.

Nice resort in a silent nature

Some creaping insects were coming inside the room from the forest. Take care of that.

Pleasant stay

Posted Jul 18, 2016 on Hotels
Nice pleasant hotel, though not a very scenic neighborhood. Near to Chikmagalur town but away from hustle bustle. Welcoming staff and okay food. Not totally a Taj experience, but this hotel does provide a class stay.

Comfortable, Peaceful stay

Posted Dec 12, 2015 on Hotels
Overall it was a good comfortable stay. It all started well when "The Gateway" upgraded my room to a cottage looking at the size & diversity (with my mom) of our family. Though it's a Taj property they don't seem to advertise it maybe as few of the facilities (like pool) remains unusable (way too many insects due to the location & tough to clean continuously I guess. Can look at indoor pool maybe). Room service was ok & food variety for veg was bit limited. Breakfast buffet was adequate for us though some might feel it is less compared to other 3 star hotels in bangalore (should remember this is the best around the area still).

Lovely setting, nice rooms, bad restaurant

Posted Jan 1, 2015 on Hotels
Beautiful setting and clean, modern, comfortable rooms. Catering was very average, however, with long delays for the food and the bill at the end. The food is extortionately priced too. I'd recommend staying but not eating there.

A nice, cozy property

Posted May 9, 2014
Pros: Service and overall ambience
Cons: Food variety in buffet and Spa services.
We stayed at Gateway Chikmagalore for 3 nights and it was quite a pleasing experience. The property, although small compared to other similar properties, is cozy and comforting. Staff here are exceptionally helpful and accommodating. Rooms are spacious and comfortable...however would recommend a makeover for their baths. The food is excellent and refreshing, and certainly suited for the cool climate of Chikmagalore. The service (restaurant and in-room dining) might get a little slow sometimes, but again, this is a place for you to relax and unwind, so no complaints. The general infrastructure (Pool, game rooms etc) is well maintained and is ideally suited for couples and small families who would like to spend some quality time together.

Nice hotel at a nice location, and that's it.

Posted Jan 12, 2014
Pros: See above
Cons: Cleanliness and maintenance of the grounds.
Location: Great trip to the cofee estate - the guide was great.
Disappointing level of maintenance. Cleanliness just ok. During our stay I could see a plastic bag floating in the water in the swimming pool. bird droppings had not been cleaned. Games room is aqn insult to the guests. The only redeeming feature is the extremely friendly staff at the reception and the restaurant.
