“Good hotel in Calicut”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

A good, reasonably decent hotel in Calicut with the quaint atmosphere. Good location and great restaurant with good food, will certainly go back to this hotel in my next trip to Calicut. The staff were very helpful and the rooms clean and neat.

It is shameful for the Taj Hotel Group to say that 'The Gateway Hotel' at Beach Road, Kozhikode is under their umbrella, with the experience I had when attending a wedding ceremony conducted in a hall on the ground floor.

First of all the security refused to allow our bus to enter inside and made all the guests to walk from the road to the hotel which is normally not expected from a place like this. Secondly, after sometime the hall turned into a furnace though they claim it is AC, but no one attended to this complaint even after repeated requests to do something and they just ignored. The worst experience was with the buffet food. After 30 minutes of service, most of the dishes were empty and not filled up on time. They were bringing piece by piece, when the guests were standing with their plates. It was very much disturbing and affected the credibility of and prestige of the host. Nothing worse than this to happen in a wedding ceremony when the catering service has not prepared enough food to serve on time, which is a clear bad intention to make extra gains from less preparation than agreed. The food served was horrible and not up to the standard of such a hotel especially the biriyani was like gravy. This service forced many of the guests to have their food on the way back home.

I recommed to remove the stars if any of this hotel and to re-organize the system to handle such ceremonies. This write up will help others to think before they engage this place and not have this experience.

I was invited for a wedding party and I expressed my dissapointment and anger about the way the hotel treated the guests. Few points to be noted
1. Security was rude and rough. They did not allow the bus to enter , so the guest were dropped on the road and walking to the hotel
2. The wedding was conducted in the hall, where the AC was not capable of cooling the hall. All the guests were sweating. Nothing was done after this was reported.
3. For lunch buffet the food was not refilled on time and the guests were waiting to be served. The biryani was too sticky and the general opinion was that the food was not upto the standard hotel.

This not what I expected for the standard of Taj group. It seems they have no idea / not capable of handling 300 guests. No wonder they are rebranding this hotel to the cheaper name of Gateway.
Hopefully this review will help others before they book the hall at this hotel

Stayed here for night on a business trip to India, and have today very disappointed with the service of staff and quality of rooms, (hotel is really old) the tv in my room did not work (however it did work in other's rooms) , wifi signals are poor in the rooms and staff were very arrogant. This is believe is what happens when they know that there isn't any other real business type hotels in the city.

The most important thing to remember is to ensure that they give you a room with the newer bathrooms, as we were traveling as a group and one of our friends got a room with the worst bathroom you can imagine. I was grateful that I didn't get that room !

Not up to the standards of the Taj hotel brand for sure. But as of the time of my visit there are no other real alternatives unfortunately.
