This was our first trip to India for our daughters wedding. Staff was always available and extremely helpful. The three day Hindu Kashmiri celebration was spectacular. Our hosts, the grooms parents, worked with the hotel several times to arrange and personalize the three days of ceremonies. Several rooms and the lawn garden were venues. Staff worked seamlessly to change rooms,... More

The river view from the room was spectacular. The rooms and over all ambience was excellent. The service too was great. The food on the whole was only average and that is why this place merits only a very good rating. Of course it is a palace and if my son were to do the review it would have been... More

I had visited the palace during January 2016 on my anniversary. Got excellent rates from goibibo. Rooms were excellent and staff was very courteous and helpful. They helped us plan our local tour in jammu. The hotel itself is in a picturesque location and ideal for a trip away from the hustle bustle of city.

I stayed one night here. Its indeed a heritage property of the erstwhile king of the state of Jammu that has been converted into a hotel. It has several amenities including flat screen TV, tea-coffee maker, bathroom fittings, free WiFi, even an in-room safe amongst other things. However, it is poorly maintained (please see photos of the bathroom and room).... More
