Good hotel

Posted 22 Jul, 2016

The hotel was located in the centre of the city. The room service was provided on time. The appearance of the hotel was good. The garden was available in the hotel. The room was spacious and clean. All amenities were not working in good condition. The food facility was not provided in the hotel. The location of the hotel was nearby the city. I had visited this hotel with my friends. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel.

Good place to stay

Posted 4 Feb, 2016

I was at Srinagar with my family on may 2015. It is really heaven. We stayed there at hotel Centaur Lake View. The property is very big but maintenance was not good. The management team disappointed us regarding cleanliness, maintenance and service. The location of the hotel is excellent. Size is very big. We enjoyed Kashmir very much.

Nice view & helpful staff

Posted 17 Nov, 2015

It was my first visit to Kashmir and I preferred to stay at hotel recommended from my friends. Though they are really helpful, it was my fear which made me nervous to exploit fully the service. Staff were good and every time ready for service. View from hotel was really nice. I would feel more happy, if I go again to Kashmir and visit another hotel and then compared Though in those days, Google was not frequently used, I would definitely go to Kashmir with better search.

A enjoyable stay

Posted 10 Oct, 2015

Hotel was overall good. Staff was very supporting. People of Kashmir are not good especially local cab and tattoos. Destination Kashmir is a place that everyone must visit once in his/her life. Good experience. I along with my family enjoy a lot in Kashmir. Really

Good place to relax

Posted 23 Sep, 2015

Hotel Centaur Lake View is located in the banks of Dale lake and is a very good place to relax, very good rooms in terms of size and comfort. The location is nice and quite unlike all other hotels of the town, which are mostly situated near nehru gardens, and all the places of tourists attractions are nearby. The hotel also have an auditorium, besides boosting of a conference hall. The food is exotic and the ambience is also nice and cool. Best value for your money.

The best location but sadly the worst maintenance....

Posted 22 Jun, 2011

The best location but sadly the worst maintenance. I stayed at Hotel Centaur Lakeview, Srinagar for a period of 4 nights ( 2 nights at a strech and a single night each in between) with a family of 5. 2 rooms in all The hotel is a glaring example of what can go wrong when one of the best property is not maintained at all due to govt apathy. First I'll list the negatives. (1) The worst maintenance i've ever seen in a hotel. Guest lifts not working properly. The luggage/service liftsare a horror in itself. No renovation done at all since its inauguration in 1984. The rooms lack any ambience or decor whatsoever. (2) The water in the swimming pool is full of algae. The corridors are badly maintained with worn-out bed-sheets kept anywhere. No sense of proper hygiene/sanitation is evident thro'out A few positives:. (1) The best location in Kashmir. Right on the Dale lake itself with the surrounding mountain ranges open on 3 sides. Amazing view esp early in the morning. (2) Maintained lawns facing the Dale lake. Looks very elegant esp from the lobby side. (3) The overall staff and service is surprisingly quite good and worth mentioning. Very polite, courteous and helpful at all times. The manager Mr. Taariq was very. Helpful at all times. (4) Breakfast and dinner although monotonous is reasonably o. K To summarize, if one can leave aside the aesthetics, decor, ambience and overall maintenance in a good hotel and focus on its location and amazing view, yes, it is worth considering otherwise don't think about it. You will be disappointed. To be honest, after I got over the initial shock, I kind of liked my stay in the hotel in spite of all its shortcomings.

Good stay and nice food

Posted 16 Feb, 2017

Srinagar is the beautiful place with gardens and natural beauty. Roses are the scenic beauty of the gardens. Dale lake and the House Boats are the main tourist attraction of the Kashmir. Kashmiri Khawa is very tasty. Hotel staff is very good and polite. All the veg dishes served were very tasty. Rooms are small but clean. Only problem is that, lift is not available, and stairs are too hard to climb. Hotel interior is very eye catching.

One of the most beautiful hotels I have visited in a long time

Posted 10 Aug, 2015

We stayed at Centaur Lake View Hotel on our way back from a long riding trip to Leh. Stepping into the reception area of the Centaur, I was struck by the sheer scale of the place. The reception area is a large space with huge doors offering excellent views of the gardens and Dale Lake. The hotel has an old-world grandeur about it. Your eyes are allowed to see far, your vision unimpeded by harsh lights. The public spaces make maximum use of natural light. No unnecessary glitter, no in-your-face opulence. The luxury is in the design of the building, the openness and the space offered The hotel is surrounded by one of the most beautiful places on earth and the huge windows and open areas allow you to look beyond the building and admire the beauty of the surroundings. Sadly the higher management of HCI seems to ignore the needs of upkeep and maintenance. The carpets are old and they smell. You see signs of water damage/leakage in corridors. The staff is fiercely loyal to the hotel and it seems to me that only their love and dedication for the place that keeps the hotel running. I hope the management is listening and pumps in some badly needed cash to maintain this excellent hotel.

Wonderful experience

Posted 16 Apr, 2014

We went for a honeymoon trip to Srinagar in March and had a wonderful experience in this hotel. We had booked for a honeymoon package and believe me, this was the best package you can get at this price It is a big hotel surrounded 3 sides by Dale Lake. The big it is not maintained properly, swimming pool was in a bad state and garden was also in a poor condition (but it doesn't matter, who has time to swim !! We got a lake side room. Room was spacious and clean with LED TV and 2 heaters. You open the window and there is the Dale Lake !!! Wow Bathroom was also neat and clean fitted with a bathtub. Hot water was available round the clock Staff was very polite. If you need anything they will be there in your service within minutes. Housekeeping was also up to the mark. Food was good from breakfast to dinner There is no facility for gym or sports though a sign board says that Advice for travellers- Opt for package, that includes pickup and drop from airport and trip to Gulmarg and sonmarg(they have other packages too), food and also ask for ground floor room near to lake Cons-It is a little bit far from the city but it is guarded by paramilitary so no need to fear Overall good.
