The Lalit Grand Palace Srinagar
Ranked #4 of 143 Hotels in Srinagar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were driving down from Leh and stayed first night at Lalit and second at Taj. now the Lalit has Stunning lawns..Amazing views of the Dal Lake....simply the best...and lots of history. the rooms are very big...very spacious, Clean, spotless and very good views from the room window of the beautiful lawns. the In room dining was extremely disappointing and no good. i mean how can one go wrong with a simple Club sandwich...? but they did. it was not what one would expect from a 5 star at all. for almost 800 bucks at least it should have proper filling and taste. Pizzas was the worst we ever had..even small cafes in Leh made yummy pizzas. i complained in the morning to the breakfast staff and they were very apologetic but it still pained me to pay for something we did not relish at all.

when we got up in the morning and went for breakfast outside in the lawns...it was a stunning view and what a way to have breakfast. superb! the Lalit has mindblowing Location for sure...its the best in Srinagar...but i do hope that they will not just ride on that alone as one needs good service and food to keep it in a good rating. the maintenance of the property is great ...most specially the magnificent lawns. i will remember the breakfast in the beautiful lawns. the breakfast had a huge number of foods and the staff were very good and when i complained to one of their Inroom food they seemed genuinely concerned and took due note. i do hope they would do something as it needs much improvement. Pankaj from senior guest service...Vivian were also very kind and showed us around. the property is beautiful indeed but just needs a good sprucing up of their food. would love to come back and would appreciate some feedback whether they did improve or not as we keep coming to Srinagar.

they also had some swings and free Horse buggy rides of the hotel grounds...kids loved it.

Stayed here in July and completely recommend staying here. Book a room which opens to the lawns and you will enjoy it the most. We spent most of our time in the lovely gardern, its idyllic with warm and hospitable staff
We stayed 2 nights each in Lalit and Taj, and I prefer this one

Room Tip: Book the super deluxe with the patio

i went to this place sometime back when tourism industry had just got back on track in kashmir and after a long lull people were visiting the state..therefore the local people were exceptionally well behaved as to many tourism was their only bread and butter..now coming to the hotel u have to pass a long driveway in the car from the main gate just to have a first glimpse of the hotel as it was initially a palace and sits on acres of lands(very well maintained)..we were with another family and took a cottage together which are seperate from the main building situated at the other end of the grounds with their own garden and small fence..these cottages r close to the spa and indoor pool facility which btw is totally amazing as the pool is temp controlled and gym is great..tapestry of the room furniture and decor was great also the bathrooms and the staff as courteous as they get..the complimentary breakfast was very good with lots of variety..and u had many V.I.P's visiting the place..also had a chance to meet omar abdullah who was their with his kids at the pool facility so in all a great and grand experience..(P.S- go for the cottages rather than the room)

Room Tip: to really enjoy the sprawling lawns and the property go for the cottages rather than the rooms..

one word to say the least , totally world class, very few hotel in India which can come in line to the grandeur of this palace, This hotel is much larger and had beauty of its own, also i must admire the effort put in place by the Lalit management to keep the property up to date,

now about the price factor , yes it is bit higher as against the other hotel but it is totally worth spending, service level and food is out standing, i tried their exclusive dinning option under one of the chinar tree which was an evening to remember for long time.

all the best to the tourism of Kashmir and Lalit. love to be there again.

Overwehlmed in my visit in April, I took a 2 day break from the crazy city life and visited Srinagar and obviously Grand Palace was my choice.

Different season - different Colors - different flowers. The days were warm though but the evenings were a treat.

The hotel lawns looked more green, the staff and service were as expected pleasing.

This is my choice for ever ...

Dear Mr. Chinmay,

Namaskar !

I sincerely thank you for patronizing us and choosing to stay with us the second time within a span of four months. I am glad that the property and services offered were up-to the expectations you had with us post your first stay with us in April 13.

The valley does offer different colors in different season and that is what makes a year round destinations. The upcoming Autumn and Winters will offer equally delightful but visually different views.

I am certain of your visits to enjoy the different seasons with us at The Lalit Grand Palace Srinagar and personally look forward to welcoming you back.

Right from the time we entered the grounds till the time we said our good-byes it was a truly brilliant experience. The staff were exceptional, their manner is exceptional, the traditional greeting 'Namaste' by each of the staff with an eye contact and smile, I have never experienced in any other establishment and I have been in several. A great team led by Messrs Nambair and Rawat, not forgetting Ashwini at the front desk. Please ask for their advice when moving around and let them organise your trips...you will get genuine advice and will enjoy more. The food was equally good with plenty of choice and off-menu options. You must try the bar and welcoming smile from Surinder....a great experience - I visited it everyday.

Room Tip: We stayed in the super deluxe room which was very spacious and well equipped
