We stayed here for one day. This CANNOT be called a five star or luxury hotel. Reasons:- 1. The front desk staff told us he had given us an upgrade, even though he had given us the WORST ROOM possible of the same thing we had booked and paid for. The worst HUMILIATION possible. 2. The room had one big HOARDING BLOCKING the sea view. The pictures in the website is totally misleading. 3. So many implements not working. JACUZZI not working . Male STEAM BATH door handle broke and no way to get out. SWIMMING POOL closed at 7 PM. 4.SHABBY ROOM. NEEDS IMMEDIATE RENOVATION. PICTURE ATTACHED. DO NOT STAY HERE. JUST GIVE 3 K MORE TO STAY AT NOVOTEL.The DIFFERENCE is huge . We stayed at both. NOVOTEL was the best and GATEWAY the worst experience of our lifetime. This hotel is a DISGRACE to the taj name. Good thing is that they allowed early check in to us (12.30 pm)..and the buffet food was good.. My suggestion to the management is that employ professional honest front desk staff...renovate the hotel...buy the hoarding space and remove it to improve the view from room... My suggestion to travellers....avoid this hotel. And if you want to stay demand 5th and 6th floor rooms to make the view little better...in any case, do not accept 2nd 3rd and 4th floor rooms...it is better to stay any other hotels

Service is the issue.It is not upto "Taj" or 5-star rated hotel standards.Rooms are excellent and USP of the hotel.They have colonial heritage touch.I used to visit this hotel with my father when I was a kid.I had chosen this hotel specifically for revisiting my memories. * Please provide newspapers in room. *Bathtubs should be present in premiere rooms. *Service quality should improve.In the restaurant service quality is very poor.I had to wait 20 minutes during dinner time in order to place my order Comparatively during breakfast it was ok types.They were busy in attending their own hotel bosses ignoring the guests.Staff are not multi-lingual.Food was great. Location is the USP of the hotel This hotel is still my preferred choice.We are loyal customers of The Taj Vizag and would visit again as memories are associated with it.

The most frustrating problem I faced is with soap. The water is hard water and soap has to be suitable to those conditions but it isn't. I bathed for 45 min to remove the soap Precipitate but still not satisfying bath. Cleaning is not good. Clumps of hair are there in bathroom and it's disgusting. On the day of leaving they removed towels and they didn't put new ones. If they don't want to put new towels as it is last day then atleast they have to left used towels. Kitchen in room dining is very much time taking. I waited almost 1hr for 3 simple items. Swimming pool experience is horrible. The steps leading to the pool are not clean. There is no soap in the bathroom. Also bathroom is so small and no lighting. Also lady attenders are there in gents section of swimming pool room. There is no option to change clothes in bathroom as it is very small and when I am trying to change clothes by going to a side lady attender came near me. Very horrible experience. I didn't expected such standards in a five star hotel. Even dolphin hotel maintain good standards with swimming pool. Another thing is furniture in the room. It's not clean and visible dirt marks are there which is disgusting. If they can't able to remove them at least they have to put a clean cloth. And the windows are dusty. What's the use of taking Seaview room if windows are so dusty. Quality of food also not good. I ordered curd rice and the rice is very hard and also broken. However There are worth mentioning some good things. 1)check in and check out experience is good. Front desk staff are very efficient and also helpful. Special mention of srijan for helping me through out the stay. 2)security staff are very much courteous. 3)special mention regarding buffet staff is necessary for their good attitude and prompt service.

Please keep it up. It's a minimum courtesy towards guests which some hotels don't follow. 5)Special mention regarding wheel chair access is necessary as gad restaurant is very distant and it's very helpful for my mother and also person taking her is wheel chair is also very good. Please don't let this long post go to waste. I put considerable time in writing this. Please make necessary changes.

It does not feel like a 5 star property. Very old hotel, old room interiors and the common area does not give vibe of 5-star hotel. Specially when you see Novotel next to it. The service is slow, to say the least. Sometimes you have to call multiple times to get one thing done. To give an example, I had to call everyday to get the extra bed setup, multiple times. Ideally, your staff should check with me every evening to set up the bed. But no proactiveness. In restaurant also, the service is slow. Food is basic. I was surprised by lack of options. Restaurant is also small. Quality of food/freshness etc. was below par. We found one sweet which had fungus…. Limited Amenities. No play area for kids. Poor cleanliness of glass windows. I have ocean view, but with the unclean window, its not much fun.

One of the finest locations. Just walking distance from beach and nearby tourists areas/ museums. Beach road has awesome view all along. Place worth visiting. Dining hall is also nicely designed. I would love to visit again. I would recommend the stay.
