Guest reviews for The Gateway Hotel Marine Drive Ernakulam

Everyone (1)
5 out of 5

A very enjoyable stay

Pros: Location and staff
Cons: The area around the swimming pool needs updating.
Location: The ferry terminal for day trips to Fort Cochin and other islands is just a short walk away.
The Gateway is well located near to the ferry terminal and it also provides a complimentary evening cruise on the lake. The staff were excellent and we enjoyed the range of Indian foods in the buffet.
