The Gateway Hotel, Athwa Lines, Surat

The Taj at Surat is a lovely hotel. Service and staff were extremely helpful, polite, attentive and co-operative.

When I requested a 4 am wake up call for my inlaws who had to catch the morning train to Bombay (we were driving back to Ahmedabad), they offered complimentary bed tea for them and told us that they could pack them a breakfast box that they could eat on the train. They volunteered this information themselves and had the tea and breakfast ready on time. Double Thumbsup for this attention to detail and prompt service.

We ate dinner at Flow and I think their Indian food (served as part of the buffet) was phenomenal. The buffet had a much better spread than most 5 stars in Ahmedabad. The Chicken curry and Goan fish curry were stand outs and the dessert selection was amazing.

The breakfast was not as great a spread though it was still quite subbstantial.

Room Tip: Try and get a river facing view, its beautifully calming
