“Jai Mata di....”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

The Vaishodevi hotel is one among the hundreds of hutels present in Katra. Also many hotels have similar names , hence one needs to be careful while booking withthe help of online stites / agents etc. Vaishnodevi hotel is good clean and decent hotel albeit little over priced.

One can bargain at the reception for better rates. However bargaining is ot of question specially during seasons and one must go for advance booking during such season time. Food is okey. Staff is very friendly. Hotel also has inhouse shop for buying Prasad for the shrine , however same can be purchased at the shrine also. Hotel offers free drop and pick up facility to its guest upto main shaire gate which is nearly 2 -3 kms from hotel.

Dear All,

Hotel is anyhow ok but the behavior of staff is very very very very bad. We went to vaishno devi and i wanted to book in bali resort but yatra.com representative gave me the option of this hotel for which i got agreed and when i reached at the hotel the staff told me that room is not empty right now and we have to wait and after that i got a double bed room and i have t wait for the family room for which i have told that please keep your luggage ready as our staff will shift the luggage.

Second day we went to vaishno devi shrine and got late due to heavy rush and my wife called hotel staff that we want to stay for one more day but they told that it cant be done and we are putting your luggage outside (It was just like that we dont have money to pay ). My wife requested that please dont do this as we have 9 month child and where we will go in the night ,the staff told that they dont have to do with the same and can't help us (Totally Inhuman).

My mother was also with me and when we came back at night we found our luggage outside our room . I was having cash and laptop (Lets imagine if a single thing get stolen), After the continues request at 11 pm we got second hotel and paid 3000 rs for the single night.

This is my first and last stay in the hotel . The bathrooms are too dirty + hotel staff behavior makes it terrible.

Thnx
Vijay

The hotel is very much near to the Vaishnodevi temple.It has pretty decent lobby.Very old interiors and not so good rooms.The staff are very friendly.The tariff for the rooms are not worth.The restaurant is good but a little pricey.A good swimming pool for a break which not many hotels have at that place.In all it's good for the people on pilgrimage.

I had planned my hotels for the first time using Tripadvisor, and I am really happy.
I made a booking on phone and was feeling a little uneasy but all my tensions ended on reaching the hotel.
A well kept hotel, with a extremely friendly and helpful staff.
I had booked a suite and it was really clean and cozy with all the comforts.
The food and staff were great, they helped us plan our trip when it extended for a day, and the travel costs they offered was really better than anything else around.

Special thanks to the Manager of the place Mr Manohar, who was really very helpful all the time.

A nice basic hotel with decent rooms which serves the purpose. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The service was great! The food was really good! The hotel has a lovely view of the hill. If it fell short anywhere, it was the rooms, cleanliness of the sheets, etc. Despite these minor things it was a good stay here with all the basic facilities. Its not luxurious, but then, on a pilgrimage many people don't expect luxury as they do during a vacation!
