“Renovated, same great view, same great service”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

We had stayed at Hilltop on 2 earlier skiing trips to Gulmarg in 2008 and 2009, and had enjoyed the great location, views and service. This time around, in August 2012, the hotel is fully renovated, with better amenities, and thankfully, the same great service by Mr. Ghulam Mohammed and his team!

The hotel staff made a superhuman effort to serve in the humblest of spirits. The property was under renovation but no efforts were spared to accommodate guest comforts. The manager was attentive, the staff was helpful, patient, respectful and improvised solutions to all problems at hand. The space is under renovation and though the space quality was great for the location, I expect it to improve drastically in the near future.

Room Tip: ask the front desk with humility and respect, and you will be given the best service and the best ad...

We took the Maharaja suite(s) for our stay in Aug'12 for a night but could have stayed for another couple of days. The room was excellent, very well done and new, one could almost smell the new paint (polish). All interiors were well appointed and clean. The room is spacious so a must have with kids and people who need extra bed in rooms. Bathroom was spacious, clean and well maintained. Room has spacious wardrobe as well. View is very good from the room as you see part of the golf course, meadow and Gondolo Mountain and location is excellent just 2 min. from Gondola. Food was very good and service exceptional. Staff is courteous. Given that Kashmir has only old hotels and old staff. The service and food quality was at par with other good hotels in India so way above Kashmir standards. Hotels disco, play room and Chinese restaurant were still under construction. There will be added attraction once they come up (shortly). Delhities, forget Srinagar, Gulmarg is must stay alongwith Pahalgam. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Cons: No booze ; carry it in your bag. Wifi in hotel is paid (50/hr) which should be free.

Room Tip: Pay extra and stay in Maharaja suite; Carry your own booze dont get it anywhere in Gulmarg

Hotel Hilltop somehow leaves you with a feeling that a little more effort on the staff side and your stay would be so much more better. The hotel has a good view of the hills and the golf course and is ideally located (practically next door to the cable car). The breakfast was great.
Overall, a cosy hotel with a laidback staff.
