Fast check-in experience with “Coonoor delight” welcome drink. The room and washroom was spacious. Another sofa or one more chair was missed in our room which made in room dining a little less easy. The trees and flowers around presented a very relaxing atmosphere and weather was good too. The bonfire and housie game hosted by the staff is well appreciated. Overall a great experience!

Great property. Good staff. Good rooms. The moment we entered - the lush greens mesmerised us. The beauty of the Nilgiris and the amazing lawns took my heart away. Especially the restaurant staff were very courteous and helped in finding the right dishes. Gassu Dhotti recommend by chef was amazing.

Had high tea at Coonor entire to Savoy with my in laws who are 84 years and were feeling a bit dizzy due to the hair pin bends to Savoy. Mr Rahul , the property manager was personally there to look after us for our 1 hour stay and saw to it that we had excellent tea with lemon juice and sandwiches.

Gateway coonoor is situated at a picturesque location in coonoor. this was a old building which has been renovated . While the rooms are big and renovated there is no view . the base category rooms are also not very good facing just a courtyard . with the price being charged this was not the best option with the ooty property being much better . the food menu was very elaborate and good . breakfast was good . service was good as well .

Had a wonderful and comfortable stay @ Gateway Coonoor. The heritage property is well curated and maintained. The staff is courteous and take care of all your needs. They arranged special heritage walks around the property and adjacent historical Church. They also arranged an early morning Nature’s walk, taking us through the beautiful town of Coonoor and Tea plantations, and giving us enough information about the town’s history, people and culture. Another amazing part of our stay was the food - delicious and a huge spread for breakfast! Notably Kiran & Evin made our stay as comfortable as possible. They also took the extra effort to post the complementary post cards to our family and friends. Waiting for an opportunity to visit Gateway Coonoor again with family for a comfortable and wonderful stay!

Very relaxing place, Cute little property. Lovely gardens and a lot of trees. Front desk, house keeping and restaurant all top class. Marshall on piano , Kiran , ever helpful and his lovely nature walk, Satheesh in front office helping us on many things, Chefs and Srimantha in restaurant, Nagaraj of house keeping all contributed to our enjoyment. There were others too but I donot recall their names. Suffice to say that all are well trained, polite and courteous and smiling ! Room as well as bath room very spacious and very clean, shower luxurious . I wish cupboard space was a little bigger Spa was closed. It was a pity. Go there before April rush starts !
