“Grand... true Surti style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

The Grand Bhagwati brings forth the following,
- Superb range of amenities (the club membership I heard is to die for amongst the Surtis)
- Rooms like no other in the city of Surat
- An amazing view of ONGC to one side, the airport to the other
- And did I miss out the amazing breakfast spread!!
- I heard they really specialise in the marriage arrangement thingy

Drawbacks,
- Distance from the main city (20 min drive. So all from bigger metros it is more like 1/10th of our day travel!)
- Pure Vegetarian 5-star!! (for 99% out there, it is a positive)

To compete with the best like the Taj all it needs is to spruce up their service,in terms of being 'naturally' compassionate... rather than being compelled to...

But anyway, 5-star all the way. The minus 1 star for the lil lack of 'perfect' hospitality!

Room Tip: Choose a room facing ONGC. Gives a great night view of the burning flame (would make more sense once...

TGB is a great hotel in a place like Surat where there a few 5star hotels. The food oveall was very good and so was the service. It was clean and the room size was good. TGB is close to the aiport as well. Overall a good 5star property will visit again if in Surat.

Very friendly staff this is a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a hotel of this standard in a little city like Surat. My Arrival in Surat wasnt the best, we used the Shatabdi express and to my fellow travellers please note you need to go down the stair case and the guy who will be doing your transfer to the hotel will be waiting outside the station gate for some reason they not allowed to wait inside, and the station is very busy and stinky to do prepare yourself. On Arrival at the hotel we were greeted by friendly staff , they are very helpfull and a special thanks to Mr Alok for catering to all our requests and being so prompt and efficient, receiving great service from staff sure enhances one's stay. Breakfast was good, I would say it could do with more variety, we had lunch at the hotel and I have to say food was really good :-) The downside is that this hotel is a bit far from the city, I would say arond 30 minutes so if youd dont have the luxury of time consider something closer to the city. Also to get a taxi from the hotel you need to walk to the main road, which takes about 5 minutes on a sandy road. We had a really nice taxi guy that took us around. His name was Deepak - 9825207071 ( make sure you negotiate price with him before calling him ) he is very sweet and helpful. Would I stay at this hotel again , Absolutely yes - I think its good value for money and a pleasant retreat for travellers. Thanks again to Mr Alok and the entire team at TGB for your great service.

Surat is a bustling city, just about 300 odd kms from Mumbai, we chose the TGB, for its newer rooms and age, compared to the other 4-5 star hotel in Surat, the Gateway. Its just about 5 to 7 minutes to the airport. The hotel is quite large and the rooms are comfortable with all the necessary modern amenities that one would expect out of a 5 star property.

The reservation over the phone, was perfectly taken and understood, we chose the rooms with breakfast. The check-in, smooth and efficient. Was Impressed with the facilities on offer, a great club -house, a 180 degree reclining movie theatre room within the hotel, so you can catch a movie within the hotel premises after work, the Indian restaurant was superb as well.

Furthermore, the break-fast was a good spread, served in the 24 hr coffee shop, the TGB, has a Night-club as well (no alcohol here, Gujarat being a dry state), The hotel, is a pure veg and dont expect even a scrambled egg to be served here...
