“Spectacular Location and ambiance but average service”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Liked -
Excellent location and view from the room (do check photos attached with my review), great feel of the room (we booked a suite which was like a wooden cottage), decent food.

Didn't like -
Very cold behavior by the staff in reception. Exorbitantly priced food and only fixed menu was offered for guests offering for APAI or MAPAI plan (the fixed menu is pretty ordinary). Don't expect the usual 5 star warmth and responsiveness in the service which one should ideally expect after paying Rs. 11,000 (US$200) per night (that too during off season with occupancy at hotel hardly being 30-40%).

Take it from me. This hotel is a great one. Just behind it, you have lush green scenery. It away from the main road also, whisch is too busy and noisy. The interiors are wooden and there is a variety of rooms available. Above all, there are numerous facilities like TT, pool etc. Rates are also not too much. Made us feel bad as we stayed in woodstck hotel adjacent to it, which was a terrible experience

we arrived in pahlgham hotel , in a group of 16 ppl . 4 couples with 2 kids each on june 29 thru to july 2 . despite kashmir being a troubled area in the past , i must commend the management and the staff for their beautiful property . the location is quite unmatchable in pahalgham and the fact that the hotel is in the market , wud gladden many hearts ( shoppers and walkers ) .
we were given 3 suites and 4 double beds and here i must say watever rooms or suites we were given were of very good size . for us we were doubly lucky , that all our rooms were river facing .
every member of the staff were extremelly cordial and courteous and in fact at times was scared that with them bending their backs so much they might break their backs . dont remember so many ppl names , but yusuf chacha is 1 i recollect who was managing our wing . always wanting 2 serve with a smile
of all the hotels i have visited across d world , hotel pahalgham was the 1st place i have visited wherein which only veg food was laid out in the buffet despite it serving nonveg fare too ( u can order it at your table if u so desire )
we had all our meals there , and i must say we all were very pleased and happy with our food there .
as stated before all the staff was extremelly helpful and in fact the restaurant staff wud enquire abt the kids if they wudnt see them with us . i wish the hotel all the very best and i do hope 2 visit them soon ... this is kashmir - they win u by their hospitality ... god bless

Room Tip: rooms facing the garden , river

We had a memorable, comfortable, relaxed stay at the Hotel. The view from the Hotel is unbelievable and awesome.Food has been extremely good. Though we expected some local dishes as well which were not there.
I feel this is the best hotel for even those people who want to enjoy the natural beauty without really stepping out.Only things that turned our mood off was the way the employees demanded tips.

Room Tip: I will suggest first floor corner suites especially suite No A1. This room gives you 2 side view f...
