During our privilege tour to Shri Mata Vaishnodevi, we booked a family AC deluxe room in IRCTC Guest House Katra. We reached hotel around 7 AM by train. Even the check-in time was 12 noon the person at reception provided locker room to keep luggage because that time our room is not ready he give another room for taking shower and start our journey. We have helicopter booking at 10. 30 am. He have free pick and drop service in banganga or helipad. When we reach back to hotel after darshan our room is ready and luggage also in our room. Free breakfast provided with coupen system. Overall good hotel to stay here. Those who coming by train highly recommended to stay here. Hotel located in railway station. Staff very friendly.
I am 65 years visited Katra and stayed overnight at the IRCTC hotel. Hotel location is superb. Hotel is clean and nicely maintained. Staff still operates the reservation on registers, would be better if it on computers. I got the impression. However it is possible that the dual management of records is there, both on the computers and registers. Shopping area is excellent, straight and without any complicated lay out. I liked it. Shopping staff is courteous, though they talk sometimes loudly amongst themselves, which puts off the attention of shoppers Hotel is very Good and as said location is excellent, I stayed in the standard double room with attached washroom. The push button of cistern was not working. I did not lodge a complaint as I landed in night at 10 pm. However, as the cistern top was open, I could use the flush easily. If they could provide a stool to sit in the Bathroom for easy bathing of the elder citizens it would be good. Pick and drop service is excellent. It is suggested that the room TVs should be upgraded to flat LCD and LED levels instead of TV tube based models Yes for early starters for Darshan, if they could provide, Breakfast little early say 6. 00 am it will add to the facility and charm of the hotel. Rooms need to be made little sound proof, so that railway passengers and locomotives and train sounds do not disturb the sleep of the hotel occupants. But it is a very mild irritation, once you put the cotton in your ears. Guest house food lounge food menu is very limited, it could be expanded. And breakfast provided should have more quantity. For example 2 idlis are not enough for one person Overall, experience was pleasant. We thank IRCTC for maintaining such a nice hotel at affordable prices. If the above suggestions are implemented, the stay will be better. I will therefore give Very good 4 star rating, but would do 5 star rating once the above mentioned steps are taken. Thanks for your time in Reading this note.
Katra - As you all know its a place where Mata Vaishno Devi evolved . There's nothing more beautiful to see the mountain of vaishno Devi at night from the hotel The hotel is just at the top of Railway Station . We had lot of bags as much as 20 bags so we didn't do much of hard work as there's a working lift at the entrance gate The rooms are big . As exactly shown in the pic . Beds are little too sloppy but are comfortable and there's a fridge which already has 6 water bottles, 5 Real Juice, 5 Fanta Bottle and 5 Chocolates inside it Just at the window of room, you can see the beautiful railway station of Katra which is totally powered by solar panels Television is working but not many channels were displayed . When we travelled the day cricket match between India & South Africa was played but unfortunately we couldn't see it in the LED Staff were excellent and while check in we were very much late at around 3 p. M. But the staff did exceptionally well to provide our room immediately . Ordered foods comes in time and their response is excellent to our queries Just one demerit . Bathrooms are not attached . There's a bathroom outside room which had 4 bathrooms and 4 toilets separately to use for all rooms Geyser is working 24x7, nothing to worry about hot water The best part of it is that it has a cloak room where you can store your valuables before leaving to vaishno Devi at a very reasonable cost If you are travelling to Katra then this hotel is best for its service, location and excellent rooms Please don't book AC rooms as Katra is very cold at any season and importantly the hotel is centrally air conditioned, so just open your room door for sometime and your room will be chilled and some bucks will be saved Important Note - If you wants to go by Helicopter to vaishno Devi then book your ticket through online or if you wants to book at site then go to the booking counter which is situated at Niharika Bus Stand at 4 a. (Morning), as there's a huge queue for booking, after you got a slip immediately go to helipad and book your ticket as you can't get immediate helicopter If I were to stay again then I would book an Non-AC room as there's severe cold outside to save some few bucks. No soap or shampoo in hotel bathroom. Please bring your own. It was one of my best tour I ever had in my life . Adventurous, Chilled and Romantic place to visit again if I ever have a chance again.
My purpose of visit was religious vacation with family members & to summarize the experience in one word, I have to say it was awesome. You will not forget the local landscape or the breathtaking altitude, this was something you all have all got to experience once in your lifetime, even if you are not religious or share the same religious beliefs. The Hotel was as I found in the on-line pictures. I booked a family room having six beds but the cleaning amenities were not up to the mark. The bathroom were indeed small in size but were well maintained. We got one television set in our room but never had time to watch it, after all we were busy climbing hill all day. The staff were very courteous. The only problem was that food Quality was not up to the mark. The housekeeping service were really good at their job. My advice is to go for this one as it was relatively cheaper than the others and have reasonable amenities. The hotel also arranged pick-up & drop facility by cabs to Banganga check-post as well as bus-stand.
I did book my room in the guest house by online. Guest house was situated little far from the Temple. Temple view was visible from the room window. It was not a big property it was only for lodging and fooding purpose. Look wise guest house was so-so. Billing and booking process was nice. Guest house staff was friendly and cordial. Room of the guest house was average it was not spacious and only TV and bed present in the room. They did not organize any activity. Sightseeing facility was there but I did not participate. I stayed for 2 days in the guest house. Parking facility was not present in the hotel. Food was available there. This property is economical. Katra as a place is good destination for travelers. It was my family holiday in July 2012.
The hotel is good. Irctc hotel give us so many amenities. Food was good, staff was good, view from hotel was excellent and the service was good. Fridge, AC, double bed, blanket and a television along with a cable facilities was provided in our room. Site drop by vehicle facility was provide by irctc hotel. Overall I was fully satisfied with this hotel and give full marks.
