JKTDC Hut Gulmarg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We stayed in cottage no. 502 for one night in Gulmarg. Property location is awesome, very near to Gondola and it offers great views! The cottage is spacious with all the basis amenities. The beds with their electric blankets were warm and cosy and much needed (considering it snowed in Ph 2 that afternoon)
The only drawback is you have to either cook your own food (who wants to do that on a holiday!) or hunt down near by restaurants. Our caretaker was extremely helpful and advised us on few nearby restaurants.
Recommended for large families or groups.

We were a group of 12 Adults and 2 Kids and visited Gulmarg in 1st week of September. We did advance booking of 5BHK hut. First of all kudos for JKTDC as SRK was shooting in Gulmarg and no one was allowed to enter the area in which JKTDC hut is there, but JKTDC officials respected our booking which was done almost three months back and we were allowed to proceed to our hut without any significant delay.
The location of the hut and the view from there was amazing. It was also at walking distance from the Gondola ride start point.
All the rooms were sapcious, except one. The rooms and everything else was neat and clean and everything other than TV was working.
We had our lunch and dinner at the Golf Club.The food was amazing and very reasonable at the same time. Once in hut you are completely dependent on the caretaker. We were lucky to have a very helping caretaker. He was able to arrange for breakfast and tea very early in the morning. We planned to have a bonfire and JKTDC officials were happy to acknowledge and arranged for woods and everything but it rained pretty heavily that night so were not able to proceed with our plan. All in all a great stay at Gulmarg, thanks to JKTDC

JKTDC Huts at Gulmarg are huge bunglows with great surroundings, but with some big drawbacks :
1. Each rooms are fitted with 3-4 bulbs, but you can hardly read a paper. B'cas, the voltage is extremely low. Hence, electric blanket, heaters practically don't work.
2. As there are no restaurants nearby, you have to depend on the caretaker for all your needs (from hot water, tea, food or porter service to carry your luggages uphill to your hut). And each service will come at a hefty sum. Moreover the care takers are too tips hungry.

My rating for this property is primarily due to the view it offers. With a couple of friends travelling with family, we decided to opt for the 4BHK cottage. The approach to the cottage is slightly tricky as it was raining when we reached there with slippery stone lined path leading upto it.
The cottage itself was huge with a lawn, balcony, veranda, lobby, dining room and 4 Bedrooms. However, as with most government properties, it was an old construction with soiled carpets & upholstery.
The views from the cottage were spectacular with Golf Course on one side and Ice capped mountains on the other. We spent a couple of hours taking pics of flowers, birds and the views from the cottage. the gondola (which happens to be the world's highest) is octed at a 10 minutes walk from the cottage.
The caretaker dedicated to the cottage was helpful and courteous. Overall a good stay at a beautiful location.
