The Gateway Hotel Gir Forest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 December 2011

Well what do you say about the new baby grown up by Taj(A property reneuvated and re-opened this October);previously known as The Gir Lodge and now by the name "The Gateway Gir Forest",aptly located from Sinh Sadan(just five mins walk), a place where all safaris start.
The rooms are quite upto the mark with above the standards neatness and hygeine(which usually isnt the case with quite a few hotels in Gir).The rooms facing the river Hiran and the open air library is the place for complete relaxation and rejuvenation.
The staff is courteous, polite and would take utmost care of your requirements and needs.They arrange for a safari as well.Although on a costlier side but I must say the safari vehicle they offer is quite comfortable unlike the regular jeeps.Over and above that they do have a pedestal for heavy people to get on the jeep(A feature usually not provided by the regular guys).The staff especially under the management of Chaula Mazmudar is very efficient and caring enough during your stay.Krish and Nachiket their take care of whatever your requirements be.They even contact you well in advance to make arrangements for the required safari on your arrival, so that you dont have to take the pains of standing for the permit(which usually is required for the safari).Appreciate the gesture of informing me about the same a month in advance so that it's a pleasant and a hassle free stay there!!
The food is usually in buffet and ala carte(Continental,Indian and Gujarati food available),a menu which is sufficient enough to keep you happy.But worth a mention is about the Chef Bhardwaj who will go beyond the menu to cook whatever is possible.
Its just the complete package with these add-ons that "Make you feel like a King" while you go to visit the "King of the Jungle"...Also to mention about the special 'Siddhi Dance Show ' which they arranged as a part of the Cultural Events was fab and purely entertaining!! Chilling in the night the show was placed at around 9 but the staff was humble and caring enough to rpovide blankets to everyone who need one...
They have swimming pool, spa and fitness centre...All of them are functional but in the spa section they do not have a masseur for now which they would be appointing in the next couple of months(However they do arrange for a kerala massage in a centre near by)
So do I recommend this property??..."Certainly Yes!!!"..
Well what made the complete stay fab was the sight of 6 lions and a leopard..!!!
A Stay to Cherish... and Memories forever,..
