It was winter when we went to Vaishno Devi, and we stayed here. A clean hotel with good rooms, near the temple. Good service and a cafe on the ground floor, so you don't even need to go out. Staff was also good and rates were not high.

My Family had a pathetic and unpleasant stay, stay in govt house but dont stay here. Service boys are more than the bosses and you will be lucky if you got through them. Walla, washrooms and rooms are so unhygienic that the kids fall ill after coming back from this stupid hotel.

I stayed here with my wife frm 8 to 10 March 2014, and was not happy with the location as it is 15 minutes away from the market. Also all the room pictures shown here are not correct,, it is actually as same as a hotel for Rs 500 or 600 a night,,,, not worth 1000 or 1200 bucks,,,, Washrooms... More

Hotels at Katra are quite in number. Durga Palace's USP is location, very near to the market and starting point of Maa Vaishnodevi darshan. The hotel was undergoing renovation when i stayed, so hopefully it must be better than my stay period. Rooms are spacious with basic amneties. Curtains and fabric needs thorough cleaning. As per the staff, Hot water... More

The Rooms were decent. Bathrooms and Toilets not very clean, but still manageable. Location is Excellent. The service was decent. The Mountain view from the roof makes it a bit more special. The foods served were hot and delightful.

He gave me a room into the basement area which was not clean and a construction work was going on causing disturbance due to noise.... More

rooms are basic, well maintained. The hotel is right on the bus stand and is quite close to the yatra slip counter, auto stand and bus stand. There are lots of dhabas around and the hotel also has its own restaurant. Try the manoranjan dhaba, the food is good although slightly greasy.
