Firstly I had a concern while booking, no rooms were available on either TAJ app nor on their official site though am a TAJ epicure member. Guess what rooms were available to BOOKING.COM.

Post this small glitch the check-in was smooth, food was great which was enjoyed by all the family members 1-60 years :) . The staff were very helpful to meet our requests.

Both the rooms were pleasant with a view to the city & sea.

The only concern I could see in the room was the shower curtain which is controlled from the bathroom, while the curtain is left outside in the living room which is an unpleasant setup.

Room Tip: Request for sea view rooms to enjoy the colors of sunset in the evenings.

We visited Mangalore from 29 September to 03 October 2017, and stayed in The Gateway Hotel, Mangalore. It’s a quiet small property most suited for a quiet holiday. Although it’s a small property, the ambience is quite nice. We enjoyed lavish breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant. The cuisine was exquisite, especially the fish dishes. I’m a little biased as I’m fond of fish, but my wife who is a vegetarian vouched that the food was extremely tasty. We had workouts in the gym, and also used the pool. My daughter practised her learning of swimming in the small, but neat and clean pool. Mangalore is a convenient base station to take daylong trips to nearby locations. We went to Madikeri and enjoyed its scenic beauty. Next day we went to Malpe Island, and enjoyed being surrounded by the sea. We also ventured into bordering Kerala, and visited the historical Bekal Fort by the sea.
Overall, we enjoyed our maiden trip to Mangalore and surrounding areas.
I would specifically like to commend the services of Noor, Manager Port Cafe, and Teena, Sathya and Ashwani from the front desk for their helpful attitude.
And, yes I did enjoy a quiet beer in the peaceful bar of the hotel.

Stayed for one night, property is good for business stay. Standalone building with small swimming pool. Good food, courteous staff. Rooms are good. Has basement parking. Breakfast spread is decent.

I stayed at this hotel recently.
It is a bit dated- huge clunky keys to get into your room. The rooms look old and dated.
My room faced a construction site.
Quite far from the airport- about an 1/2 hour drive.
However close to the city, a 5 minute walk to a big shopping mall.
Breakfast was good- Indian breakfast + continental.
I think this hotel requires some refurbishment to call it self 5 Star

Dear Guest,

Greetings to you from The Gateway Hotel, Mangalore!!!

Thank you for staying with us at The Gateway Hotel during your recent visit to Mangalore and taking time out to give us your valuable feedback.

I have noted your point that the hotel needs an up gradation. I would like to apprise you that we are undergoing a phased renovation plan and have completed one floor rooms & bathrooms renovation, the public areas and the carpets on the corridors have been replaced too. Currently we have completed upgrading our elevators with Kone lifts as they were 30 years old and outdated. The balance floors rooms and bathrooms refurbishment is slated in the forthcoming plan. I hope you had a comfortable stay otherwise.

We immensely value your kind patronage and I look forward to your next visit to Mangalore and assure you of our finest services at all times.

Please feel free to contact me directly if there is anything else I can assist you with.

Kindest Regards

Peter Nirmal
General Manager
