This property is huge in it has everything you will require for a vacation / events / weekend hangout. The food is excellent. No doubt, the options offered, taste & quality is superior. You get all types of food you need. They serve buffet breakfast, lunch & dinner at this hotel. Chef can be seen in the restaurant area, which assured you that the food prepared by him is very delicious. One can opt for evening hi-tea at the swimming pool area which is also very good. The hotel has a play/recreation centre where you can play both indoor as well as outdoor games. The lawn area is superb, it is right outside your rooms. Swimming pool is very big and clean. The staff is very cooperative and helpful. Location wise it is best compare to any other resort/hotel. My Special thanks to resort staff & their management for making our stay so wonderful & memorable. Overall experience is very good and this place can be highly recommended to others.

Best Wishes
Ankur Mitra

Room Tip: The Superior Deluxe rooms with sit out are very nice & comfortable.

Excellent location - faces the hiram river. This has become a disadvantage for the hotel since instead of overlooking the forest and hearing alarm calls, you are seeing the gypsies being washed in the river during the day. Evenings are pleasant though and if you are lucky, you could hearing alarm calls.
Surprising but the hotel does not have effective 'dry' area in the bathroom….bathrooms are therefore wet - most of the time!
derive standards are usual Taj levels and one would be pleased with the same.

Room Tip: if you are fond of TAJ - go for this hotel but sont expect same levels. Pick up Room No 101 -

Dear Guest,

Please accept my sincere apologies that some aspects of your stay experience particularly washroom did not match up to your expectations. I will certainly be addressing the concerns you have raised.

Great stay at the hotel!

Early morning and evening walks next to river was something out of this world. Mornings were so pristine, there was no sound except that of the water and chirping of birds.

The atmosphere was calm and meditative, at least for me!

In case one is lazy same can be enjoyed from hotel balcony as well.

Hotel food was wholesome. Hotel had arranged for Morning and Early evening Safari for us. Though for us there were no Asiatic Lion sightings, I would still rate the complete experience fantastic.

Hotel staff is was very helpful and welcoming.

Biggest surprise and star attraction of the complete stay for me was the performance by Siddi tribes!!

An overall wonderful time.

Room Tip: Try booking Safari through the hotel itself. It less tedious this ways.

Really the best place for vacations and also for the wild life lovers. Taj is Taj and no one can compare in regards to services.

Excellent rooms with the great view of Hiren River is the best. Excellent food.The staffs are very co-operative and go beyond our expectations to make our stay comfortable. The only hotel at Gir forest who helps us in getting the Safari. In the evening, the Hiren river which flows by the hotel is the great place for bird watching.

GATEWAY HOTEL GIR FOREST is a place we would definitely come back to and recommend to our friends. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!!!

Room Tip: Rooms from 107 to 112 have a great view.
