“Nice budget hotel in Gulmarg”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Good experience with this hotel. We booked through makemytrip.com and stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is located very near the Gondola (cable car) which is highly convenient. The rooms were quite large and spacious. The bathrooms were also nice. The service was excellent and everything asked for was complied with promptly. The people at the front desk and the waiters were very nice and friendly. The food was also of good standard but dinner was only buffet which was highly priced and best avoided. Overall a good place to stay.

Buffet is rs350 per person while chicken kadhai and rice for around rs750 suitable for 7 persons....but it is the rule of this place to blackmail people for paying rs350 for the sick food served in buffet....the good thing is the location, that's it n they will torture U until U pay huge tips.

The good thing about this is the location and the proximity to Gondola ride. Its just 5 minutes walk. The place is also kept clean. The staff is also very good. They hear you and try to take care of all the needs. But faced lot of problems with hot water, room heating, and bed heating. Bathroom leakage. Even in April the place is very cold for comfort especially if you are from South. There is not sufficient heating and the bed heaters did not work properly. The staff did help out, but there is lot of scope for improvement. Hotel Pine Spring is just next to this hotel and looked more promising.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front of the hotel has nice view of the mountains and snow.

The best thing of this Hotel is its proximity to Gulmarg Gondola, the main attraction of Gulmarg.
The Hotel is still being completed (I stayed there in April 2012) as work is still going on in some parts of the hotel. However, on the floor where our room was, it was complete. The hotel interiors are tastefully done and rooms are spacious. The general cleanliness is good. Bathrooms are nice. Hotel food is OK. Room service is good. Not many guests staying there, maybe because many rooms were still being done.

The rooms, service and food are just average only. The room quality was good but entire hotel ambiance was not good because of some work was going on there.
Few good thing about this hotel are 1) Bed heaters-really essential during winter times 2) it is near to the Gulmarg Gondola. You can have a walk around the entire Gulmarg attraction from here.
