“Pathetic Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Please stay away from this hotel.They totally spoiled our mood during our amazing holidays in Kashmir. Gulmarg is a beautiful place but such hotels make it a nightmare.
Right from the dingy rooms to the unhygienic bathrooms, this place is a total mess.
There is no power most of the time during day as well as night..You will get filthy food for high cost.
Only a few items will be available else the Menu is total waste of paper
If you really plan to stay here be assured itz total waste of money..Do not visit even if you get a free stay , since the staff will spoil your holiday mood for sure.

The WORST hotel I have ever visited in my life!

Room Tip: All rooms are dingy

we were 3 families visiting this place. the moment we entered the hotel....we thought whats this. rooms are like 3rd grade lodge. one of the rooms was having bathroom floor almost 2 ft above ground which was shoking as we had elder people. when requested they gave a broken table to climb on. we had a infant travelling with us how became ill due to cold weather, when asked reception for heater he replied we dont have heater...infact he was using one for himself at reception, when we said give it for 15 20 mins by which child will feel good he said we need it... its for staff not for guest. :( then came the afternoon we ordered food for lunch as we were on CP plan, the restaurant staff said we have a group and we are busy so we cant serve you, after we spoke in bit loud voice to him, he said ok will give but only once so order all ata time. in night hotel lights went off for 2 hrs, we asked for dinner in restaurant, we were told by a receptionist that you cant come in restaurant as we have group and they have taken the place, then we asked ok but there is not light in room so how come we can eat here, so the person said, what to dont no option. next day we forgot everything we asked for breakfast in room as we knew now group was there , staff said we are out of panner after ordering paneer paratha, then we asked french fries he said no potatoes. as our breakfast was included we asked what can we get in it, he said plain parathat or one egg omelette per person or 1 bread butter of 2 slice. this was pathetic as we were promised for buffet breakfast. the same unprofessional pathetic 3rd class receptionist was standing there with his sad face. he said dont ask us go and speak to travel agent, you have not paid us you have paid to agent not us . so we are nothing to do with you. this was it i would never ever suggest this kind of hotel or logde god knows to anyone. please dont visit even if stay is offered free or even if they are paying you to stay in... beter sleep by roadside then in this hotel.

I stayed for one night in Aug'12. pretty well maintained rooms. A few steps away from the local market. Only issue is the close proximity to a mosque. It gets disturbing during the namaz time. Rest is OK

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side are better due to distance from the mosque

Let me start with all the good things first - We reached Gulmarg on 18th Sep, 2012 and the temperatures were freezing at 8 degrees. So first we landed up in a shop to buy warm clothes and accessories ( gloves, cap, umbrella ). It was raining with cold breeze. Soon we checked into Hotel Poshwan. The rooms were cozy and warm. Dropped our bags and immediately went for the Gondala ride. The horse men will force you to take the horses but as our driver Ashraf bhai advised, it is better not to take horse ride and prefer pathway as it is walk-able distance. The cable car experience was too good. The weather was awesome and the top we even faced thick fog due to which the cable car was allowed only till level 2 i.e. 10,000 feet. While on the way back we stopped in a restaurant for lunch as we were feeling very hungry. After that we went back to Hotel Poshwan while capturing the amazing scenes of Gulmarg landscape. By far, this was the best place of our complete trip. The dinner served at the hotel was not bad. I cannot forget the morning view of the mountains covered with glaciers from the window. It was superb. Truly God has created beautiful things. Only we need to take some time out and realize the beauty of nature and then we just cant stop admiring it. By looking, admiring and feeling the power and beauty of nature, I feel the presence of Allah having created the heavens and the earth gets more stronger.
Great place, amazing weather, perfect hotel, nice food, good staff, warm rooms with heaters for the bed, excellent location, superb view.
( Mosque at walk-able distance. )
I think 1 day was not sufficient here, If we get the chance to come here again, I would prefer to stay at least for 2 days.

Room Tip: Prefer Mountain/Valley view room.

We had a wonderful experience with this hotel, nice hospitality. There is a warmth staying here, the staff was courteous and very nice. I give 4 out of 5. The food they provided was really nice, rooms are kept warm, and was comfortable inside even outside temperature was -10 at night on 24th December. The staff waked us to see the snow fall. I cannot forget the aloo parantha they offered us in breakfast, they were awesome.

The hotel staff is unprofessional, we arrived 2 hrs after check in time, still the room was not prepared, on creating a scene at the reception, they gave us another room, the rooms are very small, the windows hardly bolt, at the time of storm at night, we had to continue to hold the window to disallow the rain water to come in.

The Food - it was stale, the rotis were like rock, your teeth may break the rotis will not, the soup, sabzi was bad, the plates not clean, same for breakfast, the bread was like stone, advisabel to eat food from outside hotel.

The location is good, just near the Shiv Mandir.

Room Tip: There are much better hotels in Gulmarg, this hotel is definately avoidable.
