“Does the Job of the purpose this is Built for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

The Hotel is just above Average by world standards. However the place where it is built makes it worth the billing.

It actually is not a bad stay in Katra. A bit away from the city, the food here is Amazing. Wifi in the room was pathetic and I had to come to Hotel lobby to get it. However the view was exotic and memorable.

The price is a bit higher than what they charge specially in the Indian Context.

Room Tip: The valley side room has an excellent view

Dear Sir,
Greetings !

Thank you for your honest review on trip advisor, we appreciate your feed back and it was nice to hear that you liked our food and the ambiance of the hotel. As far as the wi-fi services is concerned, we don't provide wi-fi in the rooms and its available in the lobby level only.However we are in a process of expanding it soon in the room too.

Thank you very much once again and waiting to see you soon.
Warm Regards
Vivek

We were a group of 6 friends stayed in this hotel n we all loved it sooo much... From booking the room to checking-out, everything was so smooth n wonderful.. The staff here is so courteous they have proven this hotel is a home away from home!!! Will surely visit again n will recommend all my friends to only stay here when visiting Katra

At last, i would want to praise the Spa which was really nice and the massages are worth rejuvenating

Special thanks to Pinki for all her help during the stay and for suggesting us to visit few sightseeings close by which were truly worth going to

All the best n Jai Mata Di!!!

We stayed in the hotel for 1 night. It was a very good and relaxing stay in the hotel. The hospitality and other aspects were really a class apart. Would recommend everyone going to Vaishnodevi to stay at White Hotels.

The White Hotel is a class apart. It signifies the finest in everything they do. Right from the first tikka that they apply on your forehead when you enter, you are treated to an experience you have never had ever.

The GM- Vivek Sharma marshals his troops with passion with a strong customer centric focus. Every employee we met or interacted in the Hotel carried with himself a great sense of pride and delivered beyond our expectation. We would like to specially mention Pinki, Mameena, Sartaj, Sanjay and several others who did everything possible to make our stay memorable.

The level of hygiene inside the room, the attention to detail about the needs of family, senior citizens and kids, the food served in breakfast, in buffets or a-la-carte, all synchronized to perfection in terms of taste, arrangement, freshness and flavours, all combined to give you an amazing gastronomical experience.

We had a good fortune of meeting the Owner of the property Shri.Salaria who is himself an extremely accomplished professional. We can now see why this Hotel is truly number 1 in all aspects. Shri. Salaria’s views gave us a glimpse of the immense focus on delivering best to the customer’s every time, always.

Our 2 day stay has been memorable. We took Mata Vaishnaodevi’s Darshan on Monday 9th June 2014. Our overall experience has been super and we will come back again.

Thank you once again to Vivek Sharma and everyone at The White Hotel for helping us create memories we will cherish forever.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the Valley are the best.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is absolute value for money. Good rooms, with basic facilities, bathroom was also okay and had the basic facilities. The reception staff was polite and guest friendly. The restaurant staff is also good. Food is reasonably priced and has a lot of options ranging from chinese, continental, italian. Something very unusual for a place that has mainly Indian pilgrims. The restaurant caters to the need of the guests and make sthe food according to the tastes and preferences of the guest.The buffet breakfast was okay and has scope for improvement in terms of food quality, variety and presentation. The location of the hotel is good as you can see the bhawan from the lawns. A very peaceful place.
The hotel offers complimentary pick up and drop facility to the market and helipad which is very good gesture and a major support.

Overall a very comfortable stay in the hotel, value for money and a satisfying experience. Best place to stay in Katra.

I was very happy with everything at The White hotels. First up the food was really tasty and not very oily, unlike the dhabas in the Katra market. The whole property including the swimming pool, several lounges, garden etc. was also very well maintained and nicely done. Rooms were comfortable, big and clean with a perfect view. (We had the valley view room from where we could also see the hill on which the shrine is situated). And lastly, the service was pretty warm and quick. Overall a highly pleasant.

That said, I have just 2 suggestions. One regarding wifi availability in the rooms and second regarding LCD/LED TVs in the rooms. When I had visited, there were 21''' CRT TVs in the rooms. The staff did mention that the old TVs were going to replaced very soon.

Room Tip: Valley view rooms have an awesome view. One can see the shrine hill clearly. Plus the garden.
