We went there for lunch when we were going around Conoor sightseeing. Old main building beautifully preserved, with fireplace et al. Food is pretty decent value for money and service was good. The lunch platter was good, with great fish. Ample parking. Worth a visit.

An amazing experience. Quiet, calm, yet caring, we got our suite upgraded. Taj Gateway took care of all our needs, including the wonderful, tasty buffet, the clean room, the green ambience, the travel arrangements, till the departure, everything was smooth and seamless. Loved the experience.

Good location. Good spacious rooms, bed, bathroom. Buffet breakfast wasn't as great as I would have liked for the price charged but it was decent. A few more amenities should have been there in the hotel, like billiards table, etc.

This is an excellent property, dating back more than a century! Staff are extremely nice and the breakfast is excellent. Rooms are spacious, though some require immediate repairs. Overall, a nice experience.

These vary considerably but we were very comfortable in our little room tucked around the corner. The main complaint was the lack of natural daylight but we were only here for one night so...
