Hotel Highland Park is fabulously located if you are going on a skiing or a golf holiday to Gulmarg. One of the intermediate ski slopes starts just outside the Highland back gate and is just 100 meters from the lobby-very convenient!! The main ski shop (where one rents one's skis and boots etc) is just outside the hotel near the slope-again-very convenient!!
What stands out and apart from other hotels in Gulmarg are the rooms-huge rooms with wooden floor and carpeted and each have personal valets to keep the bukhari going so you have the most cosy night after the taxing skiing! The beds have electric blankets and with the combination,one can actually walk around sans clothes when its way below zero outside! Another fantastic feature of the hotel is the BAR-which has been covered in many Bollywood movies and still holds an awesome old world charm! In fact you have people from other hotels frequenting the bar at THE HIGHLANDS for the great 'apres ski' atmosphere.....I've bumped into many celebrities -like Jonty Rhodes and various film stars here -all just chilling out with Khaver(owner) who is always there to make the guests feel at home!
The food however could be better,and I'm sure the Hotel is already addressing that!
Friendly staff,premium location, superb rooms and the fabulous apres ski atmosphere at the bar will always take me back to The Highlands Park Hotel.
In fact we are booked to go coming winter......as I always say(something I picked up in Kashmir)- ......INSHALLAH!!
