“Awesome plac e to stay”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

I have stayed at this hotel whenever I have visited VaishnoDevi. This is a very good hotel with friendly and courteous staff. I've been staying here from 1996. Earlier, it was the only 3 star property in Katra. There were no 4/5 star hotels either. All important people used to stay here. Location is very calm with garden view and shrine view rooms. Thumps up for this hotel

This is THE hotel where we have stayed all the times we visited Mata Vaishnodevi shrine (03 times) uptill now. The hotel is very strategically located just at the entrance of Katra town and hence no driving hassles while parking in the over crowded main town area. Provides very good parking facility. The front office and support staff is very cooperative. The rooms are clean and the gadgets do work. Although they should give a thought to regular maintenance of the rooms now. The restaurant serves very good food. Provided free shuttle services to and fro Baan Ganga, the starting point of the Yatra. However, they do charge Rs.100 if you need to be dropped / picked to-fro the helipad.

Room Tip: Rooms on the mountain side are a good option as they provide views of the yatra route..

We had a lovely large clean room with balcony facing the hill. Beautiful garden, green lawn flowers with swimming pool which was very clean. We would love to go back and cover what we missed and stay in the same hotel.

Room Tip: lovely view facing the hill. It was very quit in the hotel.

I have been staying at this hotel for the last 10 years. This is mainly because when you go for darshan you hardly spend a few hours in the room. Most of my stays are with my spouse but this visit was alone.

At check in, the receptionist tried to sell me the room at the very expensive rack rate. When I reminded him that I was a regular, he simply reduced the rate by 50%. It shows that tey try to fleece travellers. Most staff are out to make a quick buck in tips in the name of Maata V.Devi. The Katra economy survives on pilgrims.

The hotel is completely vegetarian (no onion or garlic either) which is nice for vegetarians. Also, gives you the feeling of purity.

For pilgrims starting or returning from the yatra during odd hours there is nothing to eat except stale sandwiches or toast. The food is overly priced for the quality. However, I guess for an annual visit its not something to crib about.

The bathroom has very poor maintenance. No, water pressure in the showers. Room way too big and the bathroom way too small. So, kind of misplanned.

The heater went off automatically and so I was shivering through the night. A request for a simple extra banana in the room was denied.

They have a free shuttle to and from the start / finish point of the yatra which is nice.

If you are looking for budget accomodation this is OK but there are MUCH BETTER options for those wanting good accomodation.
