Ranked 14 of 59 hotels in Gulmarg
Warm welcome with Kashmiri kahwa! Hotel is on a hill top at a viewing distance from Gulmarg. So gives you a fantastic landscape of the city, specifically when sun sets. After 2 levels of Gandola rides, we definetly needed to warm up. Thanks to electric bed warmers! Looking at teh chilling city having warm dinner..superb. Rooms were tidy. Bathrooms are good too. Food(vegetarian) is tasty.
Firstly, its Kashmir and upon that it is Gulmarg, Oh I so miss this place while writing this review, I must say that the experience was mind boggling Hotel Royal Park - A very beautiful one, with a direct view from the golf course to the blissful snowy mountains of Gulmarg, the view is simply awesome from the restaurant upstairs. Room, Staff, Restaurant, Food is good, you need to inform them prior for Vegetarian Food, this service is max you can get here, the staff is courteous and happy to help. Blanket heaters is must, test them before you use it as it might get overheated sometimes which is not good and can burn the blanket. Have warm clothing as it is cold almost all the times here, it is Summer and snowing out there, the temperature is highly unstable, it gets cold and warm within 1 hours time sometimes Do not expect south Indian Food in this place, I tried everywhere couldn't get it, so be prepared to munch what they have and it is reasonably good The life here is little bit on the edge people ask you money and you might feel cheated, Don't worry give them and dont bargain much as they will do what ever they can to ensure you are enjoying your trip The Gondola ride was challenging to me, firstly there is a fight to get the ticket as the locals and the tourist barge into the queue which is unfortunate, secondly while boarding the Gondola the Queue is not maintained properly, the guides push their tourists in the front and again there is a lot of fights. But, if you stay back you will stay there forever without movement, so be a bit cautious and play a fair game there :) Good to leave early in the morning Stay in Gulmarg for atleast 3 nights, freak around the small little place, go on a pony ride, All terrain vehicle, the beautiful time is when the world meets at Gulmarg for Skiing, if you are a ski enthusiast here's the best place for you, the plains are simple and steady and you can have a smooth trail downwards, few people ski down till Tangmarg which is quite a distance Make sure you have the best camera, you dont wanna be disappointed for capturing the beautiful moments out there. Life is superb in Kashmir, interact with the locals and enjoy a chat with them with the local Kahwa and most importantly love the Natures beauty at its best - Aseem
It simplifies the real meaning of Switzerland of asia, from there we had both the views of the valley mount and valley view. It is located at the best place of the Gulmarg, we had a great and memorable stay there. We wish to be there again and enjoyed the best of the services there.
This is the first hotel you would see when you enter Gulmarg. The hotel looks nice from outside and is strategically located in front of one of the worldâ€™s best scenic views. Local market is at a walking distance but you would need a sledge or horse to reach the Gondola Cable car and other tourist points. Hotel is centrally heated and well laid. Reception is nice and welcoming. Though, the outer view of the hotel and toilets are quite modern but rooms are designed in typical Kashmiri style with wooden designer roofs, embroidered rugs and paintings and heavy wooden furniture all around. Rooms have proper heating system with Heaters and electric blankets. With snow all around, water supply was a problem in the hotel. It was not hot enough to take a comfortable bath on first day. It was better later though. However, I think the entire Kashmir was facing the issue so I would ignore that point here. Food is just fine. Not that great and not that bad. Room service is very prompt and excellent. All in all great stay. I would not mind staying here again.
I visited "Gulmarg" this summer season along with my family & friends. This was our first visit to the place & we were not aware about the hotel & other amenities availability. It took us around 1. 5 hrs to reach Gulmarg from the airport. We reached around 3:30 in the afternoon, on the first glance only hotel looked elegant & scenic beauty from the hotel was just awesome. & mesmerizing. The hotel entrance you can view the high mountains with lush green valley ground. The famous Jai Jai shiv Shankar song was shoot in the same valley & Shiva Temple is middle of the ground & one can walk to the temple In minutes from the hotel. Rooms are neat & clean, running hot water is available 24 hrs. Also like to add that beds are provided with "electric warm bedding" which keep your bed warm & makes you comfortable. Food was tasty & spicy, in short it was prepared in 'Punjabi" style. Travelers who are interested in seeing sunrise then this is best hotel to stay. For Gondala ride visitors have to walk around 1. 5 Km or as an alternative one can take horse ride or electric scooter too. My overall all experiance with the hotel & services was excellent & I will surely stay again at "Royal Palace".
The Royal Park had good location .It was on top of the hill from where we had good view of gulmarg.The stay and facilities were good.
