Stayed at this hotel on my last trip to Vaishno Devi Mata. The hotel is very conveniently located near to the station and the helipad. Rooms are neat and clean with good bathrooms. The hotel staff is also very helpful and supportive. The best part is the 24-hour kitchen where you get real good lip-smacking North- Indian food. The parathas are highly recommended.

The manager- Mr. Shaan is a very friendly person. Our return bus from Katra back to an onward location was very late in the night. He sent 2-members of his his staff along with us and gave them clear instructions to wait until the bus boarded and left from Katra. I highly recommend this place to one and all.

Hello everyone.

This is regarding our stay in Katra during the period 24th -27th July 2012. I have booked online hotel based upon reviews and photos in various website. I have booked hotel @ 1937 per night for two nights when i reached the hotel i noticed the following horrible things :-

- Cigarettes ashes on floor & smell of same
- AC not working
- uncleaned and unhygienic washroom
- water leakage in washroom
- Far away from the local market

Seeing this i complained regarding this to Hotel manager which he asked to shift to their another hotel- Hotel Vishal which was normal and again of that is not value for money in terms of comfort and fooding.

Recommendation- Do not book Hotel Varun online first check the room before paying for it!!!!!

1. We were scheduled to go to Amritsar by Taxi. I asked the hotel reception to book it for me. In Amritsar, we were to visit Golden temple and then required a drop to the railway station. All of the above was clearly communicated to the hotel reception person.
While the hotel reception did book a cab for us, he did not inform us that the cab is only till pathankot (J & K border with Punjab) and that we will have to change the taxi there. Moreover, the taxi driver was very irresponsible and rude. We had a terrible time dealing with this taxi driver and it ruined out trip to Amritsar. We complained to the police also. We MISSED our train too!!!
AFTER THE INCIDENT, I TRIED GETTING HOLD OF THE HOTEL RECEPTION. BUT THEY WERE NOT READY TO HELP ME OUT.
THE HOTEL RECEPTION BEHAVED VERY IRRESPONSIBILY. HENCE, I WOULD REQUEST EVERYONE TO BOOK HOTEL VARUN ONLY IF YOU HAVE RUN OUT OF OPTIONS.
NEVER GO TO THIS HOTEL.
2. The rooms also were not very clean and seemed to be over priced.
3. The service of the canteen was very pathetic and food was expensive.
4. The only good thing that they did was they peacefully extended my stay duration on my request at the same rate as I had booked on cleartrip.

I booked the hotel online during August and selected the Super Deluxe Room. we were 2 family and the worst part of the whole trip was Hotel Varun Stay. U will find small cockroaches,Stinking Carpet , Uncleaned Toilet and worst is Khatmal on the bed.On complaint manager changes the room at 1 AM and worst is as soon as u are ready to lie on bed there were more cockroaches on bed.
I recommend u dont even go to check the rooms . Better Pay 1000Rs more rather than wasting 2000Rs as I have become a joke to book such a hotel.

we planned a trip to katra on 6-2-2014 and booked hotel varun by reading reviews on this site as i always refer to tripadvisor for my travel journey. We reached katra by 6 in morning and it was a chilly morning as mata's bhawan had recieved heavy snow that morning. We requested for a early check in but was rudely talked by the receptionist who was on night duty and was in last hours of his duty. But after a heated arguement they provided us the room. Please note there is no electricity in these hotels of KATRA from 7Am-10Am daily. The cut is done by state electricity board. the hotel runs on backup generator but no geysers work so you cant get hot water to bath till you wait for electricity to come. I also read a review here that it is away from main city hustle and its peaceful there.. But it is not. The reality is all state run non AC roadways buses ply right from the road in front of it. And the pressure horns of those buses keeps disturbing your sleep especially in early morning hours. The food served in whole area is satvik {no onion or garlic (lahsun) } is used in food. The food of the hotel is just ok to fill the stomach to satisfy your hunger. I wont visit this place again.
