Blooming Dale was recommended to us by a family friend in Kerala. We, a family of 5 people, stayed there for 4 nights. Mr. Firdaus and his team at the Hotel won our hearts over by their amicable nature and extreme efforts to make our Kashmir visit unforgettable.
When we did not like one of the rooms initially offered to us, we were immediately shown other rooms and given the freedom to choose the one we liked the best. During our stay, we did not have to worry about anything, right from food to taxi, sight seeing, shopping and booking cable car tickets. Another advantage of staying at Blooming Dale is that Dal lake is just a few minutes walk away.
For our visit to Gulmarg, Mr. Firdaus even drew us a map of the place to ensure that we are not cheated by pony riders. The chauffeur too was extremely helpful, guiding us during each phase of our journey. It would be unfair if I do not mention how, each time we returned to the hotel, we used to eagerly look forward for a hot cup of kahwa and yummy cookies.
While our conversations with Mr. Firdaus ranged from the scenic beauty of Kashmir to skiing and literature, his son impressed us with his photography skills.
Really felt at home! I recommend this place to anyone looking for a simple, peaceful and economical stay in Srinagar :)
