I recently travelled to Katra for pilgrimage to Vaishno devi shrine. Have been there twice earlier, so was familiar with the place so decided to book hotel after reaching there. This is also one of the best ways to get discounts as during this period there is "off season" and hotels normally offer high discounts.
After checking a few high end hotels, I decided to check out this hotel as it was recommended by my taxi driver. It is located on the main road but inside a small lane so not most easy to locate initially. I was with family therefore wanted a nice room with a clean bathroom.
I was not disappointed on both fronts. In addition, I was offerred a good discount therefore decided to stay here. My room also had a nice view of the mountain. Room was small but neat, bathroom was quite large and had all necessary fittings and hot water.
Best part about the hotel was its courteous staff and excellent food. Room service was always prompt and helpful. We had a small kid thus had specific request for his food, but were never disappointed. Their food was delicious as well as in decent quantity.
We wanted to travel to patnitop (a nearby hillstation) for a day and were looking for transportation. After checking with few operators we took the one offered by our hotel as it was almost the same as the best rate we got from others. Hotel also provided us free transportation to the starting point of the "Darshan".
I would rate my experience at the hotel in the top bracket as I was more than pleased with their service and work attitude for a very reasonable price. Definitely a go if you want to spend few days in Katra.
