“Best place to stay at katra!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

It was our second stay in this hotel. We decided to once again choose this hotel because of our past year stay experience and i must say this time experience was better than previous one.(previous stay experience was very good,this year's was excellent)

Because of the cancellation of helicopter services we had to go to banganga from helipad.we contacted the hotel and the driver was not present but still the owner of the hotel itself came to pick us up.Well what better courtesy you can expect!
We came after darshan at around 1 at night and the hotel provided not only taxi pickup but dinner on our arrival at hotel.

Everything was good about this hotel..the room,food,staff,owner Mr. Vohra and the location. Being 2km away from katra will not bother you as the hotel provides free taxi to drop you and pick you up from banganga or helipad. They also provide free taxi if you want to go to katra market for shopping.

Thanks Mr vohra and his team for being nice and genrous.

Thanks to trip advisor i booked this hotel i got excellent service. The
owner of the hotel Gp. Capt.SP Vohra is fatherly figure and is always there to guide and help you.

will book this hotel only in my next trip, the hotel may be away from the man market but provides free pick and drop services to the market . the staff is very polite and serves you with a smile.
food is good and reasonably priced room service is also good. they booked for me taxi for the rest of Jammu tour at very reasonable price and assured we had hassle free tour in Jammu

Room Tip: book room on the ground floor

I have booked the hotel based on trip advisor reviews which i think are too generous for this property.

This is kind of worst possible location, its approximately 7 km out side of main katra town. you are dependent on hotel for any or every thing.

Though staff is friendly and helpful they need to be more careful and trained, the staff broke handle of my very expensive strolly bag while keeping the stuff in room.

Rooms are very average you can see seepage in every nook and corner of the rooms. the bed and mattress is in bad situation though.

Food in room service is good.

I will still recommend ppl to take a room in main city karta better rooms will be available in same rates.

This was my third visit to Van Durga Villas, as always the room were neat and beautifully done. Staff was very helpful and polite. On way to Katra, a new restaurant has opened up from the Haveli Franchise, which is having a very good ambience and food, but my family members liked the food from Van Durga to be on the better side. Food was light, delicious and seemed to be cooked up fresh. Location of the resort should not be issue, as they provide pick up and drop facility to katra market and ban ganga/ helipad. Moreover there is nothing to see or do in katra market except for Jewels , which is dishing out tasteless food for less. If you are looking for a peace on returning from Devi Darshan, this is most ideal place then, away from madening crowd and hustle bustle of the katra market. Since I left katra very early in morning, they made the arrangement to serve the breakfast as early as 5.30 in morning, which is commendable, as i travel a lot and havent seen budget hotels serving breakfast this early even on request.
Overall it was a good experience as always
