I travelled to Kashmir in May 2014 with my parents. We had no bookings for Gulmarg one night so our car driver arranged for Poshwan hotel. We arrived there at 3 pm and allocated a room in the ground floor at the back of the hotel. The room is simply horrible for the price charged Rs 5000 ( including the... More

We stayed at this property for half a day and a single night. The rooms are quite small and smell of stale air even though the windows were open. Luckily our bed was comfortable so we slept well but our companions in other rooms had a tough time with creeking beds and uncomfortable mattresses. The rooms seemed to have not... More

Stayed in this hotel for one night one day (thankfully i didnt have to stay more than that.) Starting with the rooms- ill ventilated rooms with a ceiling height of only 7 feet. The hotel managers were the useless ones who even refused to admit their own mistakes. Noone from hotel staff informed about the fact that breakfast was laid.... More

No Bed Hearters, Hot water service is provided by individual Geyser, so takes long time to heat up. Food is ok. Actually we tried the local test in the... More

The hotel is an old property and not very well maintained. Rooms are small and lack heating. Even hot water is not available at all times. The only consoling thing is the staff. They are very courteous and try to help in all ways possible. Better properties are available in the vicinity.

This hotel is simply worthless. The food was pathetic. The heating arrangements in the rooms were grossly insufficient. The only available thing was a heating mattress. It was so cold (-10 degrees) that we were forced to stay in bed as the room was bang cold. The TV services are pathetic with only about 4-5 channels being relayed. Even those... More

However, you need to understand that Gulmarg is not a city, its a hill station at a height 4000m. So, cable television facility is not available in Gulmarg and continuous electricity supply... More

Second room was on the other side of the hotel having pathetic view of a back lane behind the hotel. They argued that they shall provide only one room... More
