I travel to Pipalkoti fairly regularly on work and find the GMVN Rest House to be a nice, comfortable, reliable place to stay in. It is conveniently located, with ready access to the local market, transport service and so on. The rooms are clean and well maintained. What stands out is the service - the local staff is extremely responsive, very courteous, and go out of their way to make guest feel comfortable and at home. The food is a tad expensive, but well made, and like home food. Recommended for visitors, both official as well as those on the local tourist/religious circuit.

Here at GMVN Pipalkoti, one of the staff member Mr. Kalam Singh found to be drunk and he misbehaved with me and tried to threaten me by saying he is the owner of this complex also he asked me leave the premises immediately. As it is a Government run organisation I called up GMVN helpline. The person on the other side asked me to register the issue into the complaints booked. When I asked the staff to provide me the same, they provided me the complaints book of the year 2018 which is already being expired or being authenticated for the same purpose. Even after asking for his identity card, he refused to provide me the same. The Manager, on the event of being called after arranging his no. Some how says, "shyam ko toh sab Peete hai." Also he refused to come as it was only 8:40pm it neither to late and even I offered my car with driver to pick him up from his home but he denied straight away. The complaint I mentioned in the so called complaints book is attached with this review. You can see the complaints book's last registered complaint which is of 07.05.2018. Kalam Singh (might be the wrong name being told), the person who was drunk on duty is there in the attached pictures. Please check out for the same.

It is one of the best night stopovers for people traveling from Delhi to Badrinath or Hemkund or Valley of flowers. It is at a 12hrs distance from Delhi, Has good accommodation and moreover very nice people. Mr. Kalm - is a very nice person. The service and food too are good. Recommend you to choose this place for an overnight stoppage.

Char Dham with GMVN We went on a customized tour of 14 days. From 21st Oct,18 to 3rd Nov’18 All through we stayed at the GMVN TRHs only, SDLX/DLX rooms; all rooms were very neat and clean. They even have air cooler in family room and a nice balcony attached to the room. The TRHs also had good restaurants (with affordable prices). You will get to choose from a variety of food. But there were very less choice available for food (mostly one or two sabjis to be chosen from, phulka, dal and rice). In all places we got excellent reception from all the staff. You feel safe and secured; that’s important when you are out of your place. In all the places, including small place like Pipalkoti, they are friendly; and its’ very rare to find such people in government run institutions. Overall I feel that the GMVN rest houses are affordable, neat and clean. I suggest GMVNL services for Uttarakand trip...Namaskar.

I was enjoying my badrinath yatra but suddenly it converts into a great sorrow after getting chekin at Gmvnl Pipal kothi rest house.The accommodation provided there was not up to that standard as other Gmvnl Rest Houses have,the fooding there is also very expensive as compared to the restaurant next to the Rest house.

We stayed at PIPALKOTI tourist rest house on 5th May,18 on way to Shri Badrinath and also on return journey on 7th May,18. Pipalkoti TRH of GMVNL is the best place. The location of the guest house is very convenient to reach, with sufficient parking space which is safe. The staff at the guest house is very humble,polite and cooperative. We were happy to see that the guest house has been upgraded beautifully.The rooms were very neat,clean and comfortable.GMVNL has tried to ensure that all necessary facilities are provided in the rooms.GMVNL Officials deserve commendations for the excellent job done. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We had very comfortable stay, however I felt that if a cupboard with Hanger's, is provided in rooms the comfort level of the tourists will increase manifold. We felt that the windows provided at the back side of the rooms are not useful. The space between the window and the curtain can be gainfully utilised for providing a cupboard to enhance the facility and comfort. I hope that GMVNL will take the suggestion in good spirit and not as criticism or adverse comment. In fact we liked the accomodation and the hospitality so much that on our way back, we stayed at PIPALKOTI again. I strongly recommend all to avail the facility provided by GMVNL Pipalkoti.

A good place to stay in Pipalkoti. It offers all the basic amenities. The staff is friendly and try to make the stay as pleasant as possible. Beware of internet connectivity issues in this area as good connection is usually not available.

In pipal koti you don't have many options to stay since entire town is quite small with few home stay and inferior than this property choices are available. We stayed for a night as part of our Chardham pilgrimage and frankly went there without any expectation since we knew you can not expect luxurious option in such remote locations. Property is quite spacious and old. May be harsh weather conditions also plays a big part for erosion and damage so you can not complain about it. Location is good and rooms needs some patch works or repairs on priority basis. Bed were old and linen was bit smelly but if you ask for replacement they will oblige mostly. Bathrooms were in line with rooms old but clean. They have restaurant attached with limited choices in menu. All orders are freshly made and served. In my view go with limited expectations and it will not disappoint. In case any issues ask for help and staff will cooperate.
