till now it has been the best experience ,the way these people treat u ,ambiance food and room everything mesmerizes you....though i had visited this hotel long back but still i remember the hospitality and every single bit of this hotel.I had planned a surprise for my wife and the hotel staff made it look realistic they made a special arrangement near the pool side and the way they decorated was simply awsome...i would recommend for boys who thinking of ways to arrange for first date is to go to this place and leave it to the hotel staff....food was awsome and the only thing problem is the distance its around half and hour ride from railway station.

I was their on my sister wedding. My uncle & I was bit tensed on what property to be decided in Jodhpur. We saw almost all the properties in Jodhpur and finally decided Taj Gateway & it was the right decision made as this property is palace property with a very prompt staff. We are specially thankful to Mr Kuldeep Sharma on his very positive & polite behavior, he supported us a lot on every step. I also thank to entire gateway staff specially front office they were very prompt on services.
I would rather say we our family member had a great time spent during 2 days at Gateway.

Room Tip: Best hotel to enjoy leisure trips & weddings.

Dear Sir,

Greetings from The Gateway Hotel Jodhpur !

Thank you for your compliments for our associates and the property. We too are equally excited from the compliments flowing in from all your guests for the wedding arrangements. Allocation of the rooms during weddings is a Herculean task and it was only made possible with your able guidance and the involvement. Kuldeep is indeed an asset for our organisation and we thank you for recognising his effoorts.

Thank you once again for your wonderful compliments.

Warm regards,

Due to official transit at Jodhpur stayed for a night at The Gateway.
It is situated 10 Kms away from airport which is 20 Min Drive.
This is a nice place to relax but due to off season most of the room were empty.
The hotel reception and service staff at the Restaurant were very good.
The hospitality was at its best. They do have Cultural programs in the evening for guests and the day we were there , there was magic show
Only negative issue was the pool was not so clean . This may be due to the off season but management to consider this issue. Otherwise this is one of the best place in Jodhpur to stay

Room Tip: Good for family stay

Dear Dr.Valan,

Thank you for your words - 'One of the Best Hotel in Jodhpur to stay' !!!
This means a lot to us and we are delighted that we lived upto your expectations.
Being in the centre of Rajasthan, we get constant dust storm's during summers which makes the maintainence of swimming pool a bit challenging. We do have a strong process in place to tackle this situtaion. Please accept our apologies for not being able to meet your expectations on the pool cleanliness. We assure you that this will be completely taken care of on your next visit with us.

Warm regards,

I had a very good experience at Gateway, Jodhpur. This was one of the best family trip I had till date.
We stayed for three nights and each one was worth remembering, though a bit away from the crowded streets of Jodhpur, it’s a nice place to relax and enjoy, esp the evenings. It is a heritage hotel earlier known as Fortune Umed, covering a huge area of almost 26 acres and all green landscaping. They have a decent swimming pool, tennis courts and you can see a lot of pigeons and peacocks all over the property. The entrance is very beautiful and we were greeted by the front desk, I am impressed with the gesture and hospitality of the staff members at Gateway Jodhpur. They were attentive to each and every detail and our requirements and responded quickly to any queries and service related tasks.
The breakfast served is top class and good care is taken in selection of food items. Even Dinner was lavish spread and everyone in my family loved the food. They have for every night special dish prepared for the guests. Special mention to Mr. Lalit at Gateway All Day(GAD) for his extended courtesy to us and an excellent F&B team. All the best and Kudos to the team for good work.
Will surely visit again. Highly recommended for family and couples. Thank You Taj Gateway, Jodhpur.

From the point we entered the property to the time we left it was an experience we relished. An excellent front desk staff......Excellent service at the restaurant..... The Chef's pampered us to our delight....... The rooms are excellent, we gorged on the lovely dishes served up and slept like babies. Attention to detail and the personal touch in everything from the top most echelon at the property makes the property immaculate. Taj at its best.....

Tucked a little away from the city, Gateway Jodhpur ( earlier known as Fortune Ummed) does come across like a GATEWAY to famed Rajputana grandeur ! Being one of the premium heritage resorts which is built like a Palace & designed by Hafeez Contractor, it sprawls over around 30 acres, surrounded by a central courtyard. Lush green, landscaped gardens, manicured lawns, a herd of peacocks to greet you and lots and lots of pigeons ever ready to give you company ! And makes you feel like you are in an Oasis :-) There is also a very spacious and nicely maintained pool which is quiet large to soak in.

They have a pretty large and imposing lobby with a high doom of intricate designs. The rooms number around 80 plus and are pretty large too. We stayed in a Suite which was very spacious and plush with mini bar area complete with bar stools, dining area at an elevated level, a jharoka style balcony etc. The people go out of their way to help you and make sure that you are at home. Chef Virendar has some magical hands and serves you a sumptuous feast. And the ever attentive Devraj kept tabs on each and everything personally...despite being the Head Honcho of the property !!

We have stayed in many Gateway properties across India but this property stands tall amongst all others till date may be because of its imposing structure, classy architecture and always on toes and yet non intrusive staff. Its hard to find any faults in this place except may be that they should beef up the stock in the mini bar. If you check into a suite and open the mini bar you will feel a wee bit odd to see just a mineral water, 2 aerated soft drinks and 2 packets of munchies ! May be that was a minor aberration

We rate this 9 out of 10

Room Tip: Go for the Suite :-)
