Everything about this hotel is great.
The only con was that it is around 10 kms from Banganga. But hotel provides free pick and drop for vaishno devi darshan. Although we had to pay Rs. 400 to hotel for taxi(since we had already availed one free pick and drop), when we were leaving for katra railway station.
Breakfast was awesome.
Visited in Dec 2015 with family. Its a big hotel. Rooms are nice and staff is friendlier. Reception is very quick. Food at hotel is really nice and menu is also good. Staff took good care of us. Free pick up and drop was available in katra market as well as helipad.
If you are visiting Katra, there cannot be a better place than Country Inns & Suites. Amazing location, delicious food, rooms are neat and clean. We just loved the food and hotel service. Its a perfect gateway with family and friends.
Overall a very good place to stay near Jammu if you are visiting Jammu or Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine near Katra. Staff is courteous, food is good, excellent service. A treat for bird-watchers as it has huge green area including a pool and forest on the other side. Indian Roller, Bulbuls, treepies etc appear to be natives. Rooms are well done and Wi-Fi is good.
This is the only best hotel in karta I think. With nice swimming pool and neatly maintained rooms. This is just perfect. I have no complaints except the Breakfast. Which was not great on that particular day. May be it's for a day only. I complained about the taste and the Sheff came and enquired about the taste.
