Reviewed 7 April 2012

While on a day trip to Conoor, we had lunch at the Gateway Taj. The property is a quiet colonial setting and all wooded décor complete with a fireplace and a piano. Takes you back a few decades. In their menu, they have this particular section of local food. We asked the waiter to recommend something among those and he informed us that they get a local person to come and cook in their kitchen and that food is even more authentic. We jumped on that opportunity and ordered a non veg meal. We got three vegetables, a bowl of rice, a veg curry and a chicken curry along with a chappti kind of preparation called gassu dhoti and we absolutely loved it. Would def def recommend this.

Nice interesting cool drink upon arrival. Decent grounds. Decent rooms.
Staff very nice, friendly, helpful, obliging - the service was exemplary.
Being the holiday season, the only option was a "package" which was board and lodging.
There was also a compulsory charge for the New Year's eve party which I skipped.
The food overall was rubbish.
Perhaps the Indian Cuisine was good (cannot comment because it is foreign to me) but the Western cuisine was sorry and pathetic and the cook desperately needs some lessons!
Wi-Fi was extra which is surprising considering the cost per night.

Would rather never go back to this hotel again but in Coonoor, there is no better hotel.

This hotel was very charming & picturesque with beautiful, immaculately maintained grounds. The staff is very gracious & welcoming. My room was very spacious & comfortable. Food & service in the restaurant were likewise very good. Given the quality of the accommodations, I thought the cost was reasonable but I find it a bit annoying when things like wi-fi are considered extras. That said, I would love to go back for another stay!

Lovely and atmospheric boutique hotel in the hills amid tea plantations. Attentive staff, good food, lovely comfortable rooms with a bedroom with an open fire, and two sitting rooms. If I were staying a while, this is where I'd want to be based, especially during the hot season!
