Stay at Brown Palace was what made our Pahalgam trip worth it! To start with, we were upgraded to the cottage with no extra cost and that made our stay doubly special!!! This is a cozy place with Lidder river flowing in front, mountains and apple orchards at the back...small garden full of flowers, butterflies and pretty little birds. The... More

The Brown Palace, Phalagam, is a foreigner-friendly hotel with all the charm of a rambling English manor. If you wish to enjoy a little 'shanti' away from all the hullabaloo, or to simply bask in the unparalleled beauty of Kashmir's glorious pine-splashed Highlands, then I can recommend few better spots to cool your heels while drinking in the ambiance. Located... More

The Brown Palace is far enough away from town but it's not too far that it's not a short and pleasant walk to anywhere in town. And I couldn't review this place without mentioning the food, which is incredible. The hotel is located next to the lidder river. The property is beautifully located in an idyllic surrounding and the owner... More

I work for a Canadian travel company and often go on research missions to countries to find the best places for us to stay at on our trips. I was at the end of such a mission through Northern India when I arrived at The Brown Palace. I was super exhausted and not much in the mood for any downfalls... More

Lovely quaint cottage set in beautifully maintained gardens, back enough from the road to have a little Shanti, but still enjoy the energy and soothing sounds of the river. A nice short stay for some peace and quiet, as well as fantastic horse riding adventure. The staff were fantastic, it is how you treat people as to how they respond.... More

We enjoyed and had such a good time. The service was great, food was excellent, clean and beautiful green areas. Arrangements for horse riding, camping, etc. was great. Apparetly there is a law that has been ruling for the last 6 years that doesn't allow them to build or redesign the actual buildings so the town looks a little bit... More
