During my recent trip to Kashmir, we stayed at Srinagar, Pahalgam as well as Gulmarg in the Heevan properties. The Pahalgam hotel is located away from the town (but easy walking distance) and besides the river. Good view of the river & snow capped mountains from the rooms. Perfectly heated rooms and electric blankets kept us nice and warm. Room service was prompt. The staff at the restaurant were not very cooperative initially (maybe due to less occupancy in the hotel) but the day we were leaving they were extra courteous, for obvious reasons.
Food was just okay. Hotel was hesitant to accept credit card for food bills, but when insisted they accepted. Unfortunately traditional Kashmiri cuisine did not feature in the menu. One has to place an order 24 hrs earlier to get them, which is absurd.
While taking horse riding trip to Baisaran valley (horses are available right outside the hotel), it is advisable to take the longer road route (more expensive and time consuming, but easier and more enjoyable horse ride) unless you are up for some very anxious moments riding vertically up or down the unmarked steep short cuts that the horse takes. If weather is good, its a good days walking trip.
