6/10 Good

Mediocre standard of Gateway not befitting Taj
As a booking I got level 2 and twin beds. I requested higher level and a ki G or queen size bed but was refused. I'm certain I would have got it if I had made a direct booking. The room and the bed were of mediocre standard. The television had burnouts along the margins. The first night was noisy with neighbors singing and baby crying. The extension room that I got was not sound proof.

Excellent location. Comfortable stay though a bit expensive for the experience. Bar prices are absurdly high. A glass of red wine ( 150 ml)is Rs 1000 !

10/10 Exceptional

Great location, fantastic staff always there to help you. Special mention to Prince. Nithin and Chef Salin and his team at the restaurant. Made use of the business centre which was very convenient. Great food despite the low season due to COVID and how it’s hit the tourism industry. Would always recommend

2/10 Poor

Main draw is that the property on the waterfront, nice view and I could go out for a walk. Inside it was smelly, a bit run down and appears not maintained professionally
