          Friendly staff ... nice place to stay for business travel

          The breakfast is not up to the standard of the hotel

          A great central place to stay. Loved the free boat cruise and night entertainment on offer. By accident we had booked the hotel stay twice (we didn't get confirmation from Booked.net the first time I booked the room) the Gateway were gracious to cancel the first (unconfirmed) booking. Nice location, pool and the promenade on the other side of the fence made for a nice strolling area.

          You would want to stay in the hotel confines as behind on the main road was just a busy noist shopping road with mini mall areas. No other restaurants close by. There is a Baskin Robbins across the street :-)

          Excellent location, very friendly and helpful staff and very good food.

          The 8pm poolside entertainment did not happen.

          I liked the convenience

          I thought there was a lack of cordination between members of staff. The door key did not work on three or four occasions.

          The most impressive thing about the Gateway was the staff. Of all the hotels I have stayed at in any part of India, the staff here were the most cheerful, helpful and polite. The food, bar and rooms were excellent.

          -Hotel and rooms are generally very clean . -Food was good and with more international choices comparing to indian standards. -Rooms are spacious compared to other hotels . -The hotel is very close to ferries , 30 minutes you find your self in the heart of the City .also couple of streets around the hotel have some useful spices and crafts shops .. - Hotel staff is so friendly, helpful and courteous at best.

          -Bathroom shower lacks the hand sprayer , this was very annoying specially if you have small kids whom you don't want to give them full shower only to clean their bottom! , you got a bucket to clean your self with !!! that was so weird for us ! -Food is very very pricy, yes its clean and we got sick or poisoned but still it was too pricy for the quantities and the selection , we got 1 kerla parata bread in the jew corner with 10 inr , hotel price was 180 inr . -B.Buffet is with limit selections, also and you have to get this, staff round buffet are very nice but a bit slow ,we understood its their nature some how , so get used to it. - We had the hotel waterfall/elephant zoo excursion , it was very nice the car was a good one but the driver while he was a very nice guy didn't have a clue about the trip so we kind of got the info some how on our own ... he even mentioned that this was his 1st time , So if you want to go excursions , think of the driver as only a driver not a tour-guide . - It was our 1st time to check in, in an hotel that doesn't have a curtsy shuttle bus from/to Airport ?? . they do have car but you will pay for it , it costed us round 3500 INR from Cochin-airport till hotel.

          In general a hotel which in terms of service match any five star hotel, although with one big exception; the hotel restaurant 'Bubble café' which offered really poor service and attitude. The bar 'swirl' was excellent.

          All facilities and services in the hotel except the restaurant 'Bubble café' offered excellent service. Think twice before paying a visit to this restaurant, its at the time of writing not worth a visit, at all. Order room service for breakfast and eat lunch and dinner elsewhere. Very bad service and attitude of the staff, serving of cold and burnt food and not a single excuse.
