The Gateway Hotel Ambad Nashik Editorial Review, Rated (4.3 / 5) By Our Editors
The Gateway property of the Taj group at the Ambad, Nashik is a five star property surrounded by 20 acres of lush gardens.
Its easy to book this hotel directly through their website or from third party websites. If you do book from a third party website, make sure you confirm your booking with the hotel before your arrival to ensure your booking from third party has been confirmed to the hotel. Booking can either be prepaid with discounts or with credit card holds. We booked directly from the website with credit card hold. It was a quick and easy process.
Arrival & Check In
We arrived by train in Nashik (Nasik Road Railway Station) and as the pick up was arranged by them, their travel desk person was in constant touch with us and even though train got delayed, we had a prompt pick up by their chauffeur and a quick drive led us to their beautiful property. Despite train getting delayed, we were early around 10:30 AM for check in and even then they had 2 rooms ready for us! While they failed to provide inter connecting rooms due to the early check in, we got the rooms which is good. Check in process was quick and they needed IDs of all the adults as the case with most of the hotels and then took no time to escort us to our rooms. We were also provided with a welcome drink.
Our rooms were good however seems in need of some maintainance with window locks of one room not opening as well as room lock itself were not opening most of the times and we had to call front desk to get them a new key again and again. It was frustrating however the bed and the bathroom was good. We had a good bath and a good sleep.
We dined in room. The food is not as good as it could be however I believe that’s more due to the Maharashtrian culture and the way they prepare the food at that part of India. Due to this, we ventured out to a north Indian restaurant nearby and had a great meal there. However the hotel itself has 3 on site restaurants along with a bar which one can use during the stay to dine and wine.
When staying here, you get free high speed wifi Interrnet along with newspaper of your choice in the morning. They also have a fitness center and a business center. The in house travel desk is quite good and arranged for our pick up and drop along with tour to the Sai Baba Temple in Shirdi along with a near by temple. The car was good, the driver was knowledgable and the overall experience was great.
Staff was great though our checkout took some time due to the slow service. And most of the times when we had the issue with the room key, someone from the front desk just ran to us with a new one and as this happened multiple times, I appreciate their quick help. Along with this, we were in talk with their front desk and travel desk for assistance during our stay and they were super pleasant to deal with and I appreciate all of their staff, hopefully they keep it up.
Nashik, being the holy town famous for being nearby Sai Baba Temple (Shirdi), has loads of stay options but you won’t find one as good as this property. While its a bit far from the Sai Baba temple but you won’t feel that when they promptly take you up at 4 AM in the morning for the morning aarti. It was a good experience and our editors give it (4.3 / 5)
