“Clean rooms,great staff n food.”
Reviewed July 30, 2012 via mobile

Centrally located, right next to the golf course. Friendly staff, great restaurant with a Buffett breakfast n light tasty food. Rooms are comfortable and large, with hot water released twice a day for a couple of hours. Not too pricey, about 4-5000 inr for a double room, for the service n quality it was great!

We had read a lot of nice things about the food at Nedous Hotel on Tripadvisor. We had also heard good things about it from our parents who had visited it more than 3 decades ago! So we were determined to have a meal here during our recent visit to Gulmarg. It was not easy locating the hotel as it is not close to the other hotels in Gulmarg. Infact locating it was quite an adventure. The easiest description of its location is "close to the Gulmarg Golf club"!

The food at the restaurant was good even though they took more than an hour to prepare it. Seemed they were under-staffed in their off season! They regard winters as their peak season as during that time lot of foreign tourists come to Gulmarg for skiing and put up here. That's why their continental food is quite good even though it might not exactly turn out to be what you ordered! We ordered lemon chicken but what we got was something liked fried chicken! It tasted good though! We also tried grilled chicken and trout fish. Others in our group tried their Kashmiri vegetarian dishes and they were raving about them!

We ordered Gulab Jamuns for desserts- they were made in-house and quite tasty but very pricey at Rs. 60 a piece!

Many of the dishes on their menu are not available. Another strange thing is that full portion costs more than twice the half portions. So it is more economical to order two half portions of an item rather than a full portion!

We stayed here in May for a family vacation and were given 1 suite room and 2 bed room cottage. while the cottage was newly built and had modern amenities, the suite was very old and had run down looks. the toilet was renovated but heating and overall room was very vintage type. LIMITED BREAKFAST MENU.

I went to Gulmarg in February 2012 with my sister and aunt and uncle (senior citizens). Gulmarg was totally snowed out and Nedous was just the place to enjoy the landscape! We stayed at a cottage (they also have rooms but the cottages are way better!). They were nice enough to allow us to take our pick of two available cottages. Both were really nice but we chose the one that required a little less walking - the snow was really slippery and we wanted to minimize the chance of accidents!

The cottages have a great view of the snow and the rooms and bathrooms are comfortable. The only minor hiccup was an initial issue with the water supply ...but that was promptly addressed. The staff there seem to have been around for a very, very long time...some of them have actually seen the owners grow up! Speaking of the owners, they were very charming hosts...treating us to Kahwa and stories of the hotel.

As for the service - it was courteous. You have a choice of eating at the cottage, or in their dining room - the latter is rather quaint with a very cool fireplace. The staff can be seen carrying trays up and down the snow filled tracks - they make it seem easy but it isn't!

Location -wise, the hotel is a little away from the holiday crowds, and is therefore quite peaceful. The ski slopes are a short walk away...and so is a very quaint,old church. The golf course is quite nearby as well, if you're a golf fan.

The only thing that was sub-par about this place is the quality of the food - leaves a lot to be desired - if you can, try to eat out! Regardless though, this is certainly a place I'd go to again!

Room Tip: The Lavender cottage is great - two rooms with a common lounge. The one right next to it also has tw...

I along with my Parents (both senior citizens) my wife and my 11 year old son had visited Nedous Hotel, Gulmarg during our trip to Kashmir on 29th - 30th December 2011. I had booked two suites directly with the hotel.

We visited Gulmarg in the peak winter season as we all wanted to see and experience snow as we hand never seen it. And what a heavenly experience it was.

The property (Hotel Nedous) is very well taken care of by the management. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the market and is very very well located for the views of the golf-course- flower garden in the front (gets converted into a ski paradise during snow fall in winters) and beautiful snow-capped mountains on the backside. The property itself is situated on large grounds and it is very very beautiful in the winters with snow surrounding it.

The suites were very very cozy during the very bitter cold winter season as they had provided ample heating (both electric and conventional wood fired Bukhara Heaters). The suites were very spacious with all the modern amenities. The housekeeping staff would keep coming regularly to our rooms to fill the wooden heaters with wood logs. (While going out for excursions / meals etc. you are required to hang the room keys outside to enable the staff to keep the rooms heated. Be assured that all your belongings are absolutely safe. Let me tell you the People are very very Honest, God Fearing, Helpful and very very beautiful).

The food at the hotel was simply lip-smacking and very hygenic. They would get fresh supplies everyday from Srinagar (snowfall or not).

The staff at the hotel took excellent care of us and specially my aged parents and really made us feel at home and welcome.

This property is the nicest in Gulmarg and there are no two words about it.

Thanks to them for all the fun we had in Gulmarg.

I would very strongly recommend staying at this property.

I would also like to mention that they have a Boutique Property at Srinagar. It is very beautifully located in a boulevard surrounded by trees. We stayed in this property at Srinagar during 27-28th December 2011 and we were very well looked after by the staff (specially Mr. Sophie).

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in April, 2012.

We had made the booking directly with the Hotel's representative Ms. Payal.

When we checked-in, we were informed that we were guests of Gem Tours who had taken the entire hotel for a particular period. As a result, the entire lounge area is taken away by Gem tours as its dining area and the Hotel guests are deprived of the lounge facility.

When we protested we were treated as Hotel's direct guests.

The Hotel has a very spacious land, but the cottages and the rooms are clustered in a small area and as a result, the advantage of the openness is not available.

The Hotel's own restaurant served delicious food and the Hotel's own staff was prompt in serving us as Hotel's guests.

The Hotel is away from the Gondola and we felt that the Hotel can add a facility of providing commute to the Gondola when required by guests. Considering that Gulmarg is colder than Pahalgam and Srinagar, the Hotel can also provide electric blankets.

In spite of the location, the Lavendar cottage where we had stayed did not have the advantage of having view of snow peak mountains and possibly various other cottages and rooms too did not have such a view.

The Hotel boasts of vast 40/50 acres of land, but in effect the area usable/ accessible by guests was hardly a small part of that.

The absence of the owner/ management at the Hotel site was visible in the services provided to the guests.
