“Nice hotel, convenient location”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Overall nice hotel. Warm water was always available. Courteous staff. And the best thing, located very near the Gulmarg Gondola, very convenient if you plan to ski. The dinner buffet is fairly good, but not great... But, then you won't have any other option for dinner in the snow-covered chilly winter nights.

We (My wife and me) visited hotel Hilltop at Gulmarg in June 2013. The location of the hotel is perfect barely 5 minutes walk to the Gondola ride. The Staff at the hotel are very helpful and if you can give them sometime they can manage the entire Gondola bookings for you. (helps saves lot of time and energy). We spoke to Mr. Malik (09622925663) at the time of our booking he upgraded us to the Presidential Suites and gave us a fantastic deal.

Would like to thank Mr. Malik and all the staff.

Thanks

Room Tip: Contact Mr. Mailk and ask for rooms facing the Gondola

I visited both the Hilltop Properties in Gulmarg and Pahelgam in late November 2013 for my honeymoon..The entire wooden villa is the first eye catching view in the hills... With warm hospitality service and superb room, it was a memorable experience..The food tastes delicious..The only feedback would be microwave provided in rooms to keep the food warm
The main attraction in Gulmarg is the Gondola, which is at 10000ft height with 5 mins rope way travel..Ice packed gardens with hot coffee and maggi (yumm)

Overall a good experience..

Room Tip: Suite rooms are good

I visited Hotel Hilltop in early June on my honeymoon. At first I was immensely disappointed when I learnt that the property had undergone an accident & was burnt down. Our Guide told me that only the ground floor & first floor has been restored. However, when I reached & checked in, I was quite amused. The restored property was amazingly well kept, Clean. The rooms are good with a amazing view of the Gulmarg Lawns. The Food was good and the best part was that since it was June with less crowd, the staff & attendants were very friendly. Advised us on many aspects of our trip which proved a lot helpful.

Another big advantage of Hotel Hilltop is that it is at a hop-skip distance from the Gondolla Cable Car, one of the main attraction of Gulmarg.

All in all, ours was a pleasant & enjoyable stay & I am sure by now they have re-built the remaining hotel too.

i have stayed 2 nights in month of July 2013. Hotel Room is nice. Centrally heated (2 nos.). Room size is little small compare to other hotels i have visited but overall room neatness is good. view is same from all room. and biggest advantage is it is just opp. to Gondola Ride.(in Gulmarg Gondola is main attraction). we opted Room + Breakfast , Breakfast was very good. in Gulmarg not much hotels are there i would say its good Hotel to stay.

Room Tip: All Room has same view, Room with Front view will be advantage.

Its a very nice and beautiful wood style looking hotel . Nice rooms also have interconnected rooms . Awesome view from front road side rooms . Service is good and food is very nice . All staff is very polite and always ready for room service . But don't book your rooms with lunch, dinner or breakfast . You can order whatever you need at anytime in the Hotel otherwise you have to be there in the hotel at their fix timings for buffet food which is little difficult .
Location is very nice its just walking to Gandola ride . If you stay far from Gandola than you have to come on horses to Gandola from hotel because its a big problem that if you do not have hotel near Gandola than you have to park your car or bus far away from Gandola . So it is better to stay near Gandola .
Always book tickets of Gandola online otherwise big que may be there in season . Keep with you boots and jackets to Go on mountain by Gandola because they charge too high prices to hire boots or jackets . Anyway, This hotel Hiltop is quite good place to stay to enjoy in Gulmarg and Gandola ride . Beds, Toilets , Heater in the room , all are quite good in the Hotel . Hotel also have parking and one restaurant at road side near the entry and parking of Hotel which have very very tasty snacks with good variety particularly eat their butter sandwitches . Self service and also they serves in the rooms . you can order from room also by intercom .

Room Tip: Ask for Front view road side rooms only , back side Gandola view rooms are not having very good view...
