Pleasant  quiet stay Pleasant quiet stay

by jever88 on February 21, 2017

Enjoyed short stay at this place, with room at the top floor (3rd) giving an eye pleasing View of greenery and far of sounds of Kollam beach waves banging on the shores. Rooms are just pleasant basic nothing fancy, standard bed and a T.V, oh yes, My room also had a small balcony right place for private evening drinks with Enjoyable view for company, would not forget the sights and sounds. As for the rooms, they are in need of renovation, bathroom and toiletries were Just right slightly perfumed. towels and shower water pressure just right. Breakfast at this place, is a small affair, maybe due to limited number of rooms but food was fresh and mainly South Indian dishes, staff were ready to prepare A dish and they had Omelet station, - for great view, serenity and feeling of morning Calm, outside seating is best. Swimming pool is situated giving great views of the greenery a relaxing time, This place is also a short walkable distance to the Kollam beach. It is just right And convenient for place to lodge and beach. Yes, if chance comes up, would surely visit again, only black spot was the upset Tummy from one of the beach shack restaurants.

Excellent well run hotel with very caring staff Excellent well run hotel with very caring staff

I was ill after eating bad food at another hotel when we arrived here. Treated with genuine care and concern by all the staff. Called a doctor who diagnosed and treated the problem. Very relaxing hotel, a little scuffed round the edges but very quiet and comfortable. Loads of returning guests. Close to beach. Large rooms with pretty gardens. Great sea views, good food, and a big clean pool. However, what really makes this hotel is it's wonderful kind, efficient staff. Special mention to Ammu and Jithin on the front desk.

This hotel is located at a beautiful location at Varkala. The property is small but well maintained with sea facing rooms and a small swimming pool. This place is really value for the money. After travelling so many places in Kerala,this place was our last destination. So our decision to book this hotel turned out to be excellent. The room we booked was really comfortable enough to provide the kind of relaxation we were looking for. The beach is also at a walkable distance from the hotel but we can see the sunset from the room itself. Food served at the hotel was scrumptous and also the staff was quite helpful. This place is really the best option to stay at Varkala.

Lovely Hotel, great Service, but Pool and Fitness Centre not up to Scratch! Lovely Hotel, great Service, but Pool and Fitness Centre not up to Scratch!

Hi, our stay at the Gateway was overall excellent. Extremely friendly staff and the Restaurant Manager is a big asset to the hotel! The breakfasts were superb! Comfy beds, spacious rooms, though a little dated and missed the small touches like turn downs. I have to say though that I was very disappointed with the "Fitness Centre" as advertised as this only included a treed mill and a running machine. One of the main reasons we booked this hotel over others was the fact it stated Fitness Centre. I would post certainly change the literature as it is very misleading. The other very negative point is the cleanliness of the pool. After the first day we did not swim in it as the floor of the pool was slimy, where there were missing tiles you could see the green algae. This could also easily be seen around the sides of the pool, under the grills. This really need to be sorted as it is not up to scratch!

Staying at the Taj Gateway offers all the comforts of home and also allows you to experience all of the amenities of Varkala beach resort. A win-win. The hotel has a terrific pool, great food and is clean and safe.
