Hotel Mountview
Ranked #4 of 97 Pahalgam B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Situated right in the center of the Pahalgam Market where you can find everything you want.
Do not go for any hotel which is not in the market as everything else will be difficult to access.
Ponies are just outside this hotel.
Cab / Taxi service is at your door step.
Veg restaurant (which was imp for us) - DAANA PAANI is the best restaurant beside the hotel.
Room service is also pretty good... Food quantity (especially DAL, must be increased a bit). Except that, we loved the hotel.
WiFi is all over the campus which is included in the stay tariff.
I Suggest Breakfast Service must be started for travellers as they face trouble finding eating joints outside the hotel campus. But the buffet service must not be above Rs. 200/- per head extra over the tariff. Variety such as local fruits, juices, eggs, toast, dosa, idlis, cornflakes, parathas, Cholay, etc can be managed easily within Rs. 200 per head buffet breakfast.
The only problem everywhere in J&K is that everyone expects TIPS from you. I do not point out anything towards this hotel only in particular as such.
The hotel must have their own pick and drop service which can be charged nominally and not as per the local govt rates which is enormous.

Drop service from Pahalgam to Gulmarg or Gulmarg to Pahalgam must not be more than Rs. 1500/- govt rates are Rs. 4000/- which is vague.

I will suggest the hotel management to start a shuttle service with schedules between cities with nominal per seat basis charge.

Our stay otherwise in Mount View was the best in the entire J&K Travel.

I Rate it as under

Room Tip: Choose the rooms in the center of the hotel or towards the complete side of the hotel which faces th...

We have booked 4 super deluxe rooms in advance, but on arrival we have been alloted normal rooms, on protest the manager assured that your rooms will be changed after 12 noon. We have given him the keys and told that we are going for site seing, you please shift our luggage. But in the evening the manager told that i have not promised you that i will shift your rooms. The food is very bad and the service is very poor.

I was not expecting much out of this hotel simply because I thought that if they are charging me a mere Rs 3500 per night what great stuff they can provide ? I was delighted to see the location especially the room they offered me right in front of the mountains where the beautiful white river was passing by. A picture perfect location - An extraordinary helpful and outstanding staff - Very nice food and an awesome service makes MOUNTVIEW a must stay place in pahalgham. My best experience was this place and hotel - I felt the warmth from the hotel staff,keep it up guys.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but avoid the ground floor as there is no privacy left.

We were a large group and had 5 deluxe and 1 suite rooms. The location of the hotel is superb and is in the market. It's right next to Hotel Pahalgam and most shops and places to eat are easily walkable. It faces the river and has a lovely view with a garden. The food is very average though the staff is superb.
The location was a big deal to us since the other hotels in Pahalgam don't have anything within walking distance. In addition, only Pahalgam tourist body approved cabs can take you sightseeing.

The deluxe rooms are very good and the 4th floor ones have renovated bathrooms which are better than the 2nd floor. The suite was only a 1000 more and was amazing. It has incredible views with a lot of space. They have very few suites so take that into account.

The hotel staff is excellent. The hotel itself is a little dated and they need to renovate it in order to charge a higher premium. It has a pool table, billiards table, table tennis and carrom facilities which we used.

Other: The Bhaisharan meadow is incredibly gorgeous! Trout Beat and Cafe Log Inn are good though the trout at Senator Pine and Peak (a great hotel) was better and cheaper! Dana Pani is the go to place for veg food.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the 4th floor (4xx etc.) The suite rooms are fantastic!

We stayed from 1st October to 3rd October, Room No is 110.Good view View is good. Make sure to do good bargaining before check in. Take only room, MAP was no-no. Non veg was very bad. We told the same to the hotel manager too. It was not cooked properly. Recommend don't take food option while staying in this hotel.
Be ready for lots of change, once check out.. Lot of people will come to you but they won't come whn you dial the room service no.

Room Tip: Take back side room. If pocket allows suite or else take room near to suite. We took room no 110, ne...

I was having no reservation and reception was very helpful to provide me accommodation at reasonable rate. All around are smiling faces. Location is excellent and lucky to have wonderful sunset photos from hotel garden. Out side the hotel pure vegetarian restaurant is DANA PANI. Good food. Will visit once more in winter at this hotel.

The views from the hotel are excellent, you can also get photo shoot done in traditional Kashmiri attire in the hotel premises. Hotel is located in the market area and is convenient for shopping, hiring taxi etc..
The service from the staff are very ordinary and the food was below average.

The food was below average, may be as it was complimentary.
The charges for tea / mineral water are very high (basically anything on the menu is not value for money)

Everyone expects tips in Kashmir, from stewards, waiters, taxi drivers, pony owners etc. seems like they have become habitual.
