Spent one night in The Gateway Hotel, which is part of the Taj chain. As with most of the higher grade hotels in India, security is tight. We were given a warm welcome and given a welcome drink on our arrival. The hotel is well located - some of the rooms have a view of the Taj Mahal. Our room over looked the pool and gardens which were very nice. The room was a reasonable size, well kitted out, very clean and had a nice bathroom. Breakfast was buffet style with a mix of Indian and continental foods. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was ok. As with all the hotels we stayed in during our trip, drinks were expensive. There are some shops just off the main reception/lounge area which were expensive and the sales assistants could be pushy! We just gave them a wide berth! There was a magician performing that evening in the reception area too. All the public areas were of a high standard and the hotel was very clean. The staff were all friendly and efficent. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay.
