I went there for a lunch. There i met Mr suheel Mughal General Manager of the hotel.He is very polite person.He gave us all the info we needed about Gulmarg. we were not in-house guest but he still he helped us in every manner. I really appreciate his help. The view from Restaurant is just mesmerising. The food was good…
Before journey (Aug,14) we’ve searched a lot and booked this hotel. We were a lit bit tensed about the location and view. After reaching we found our decision was correct. It’s around 750 mtr distace from the market area in a little uphill. Whole Gulmarg valley is visible from their garden and dinning space. From rooms you’ll also get the valley view. Dinner and breakfast were very good. The hotel guys were friendly.
Perfect for family/couples.
My wife and I stayed in this hotel last year in the month of June. It was drizzling during that time and it will not be incorrect to say that the rain made the valley more beautiful. The view from the main entrance of this hotel is picturesque. You can see the snow clad mountains lit by shading sun rays. View from our hotel room was also good.
The hotel is ideally located. It is around 10 minutes walk from the main market. But you would enjoy every minute of this walk.
I stayed with my wife on 10th of May 2016 in Royal Park hotel Gulmarg. I stayed in that hotel for one night during my trip to Kashmir. The view from the main entrance of this hotel is picturesque & You can see the snow clad mountains lit by shading sun rays. Even Gondola is only 2 km away from that hotel. And you can see view of beautiful golf field from hotel lobby. Even hotel staff is awesome. I would like to thank Mr. Suheel Mughal General Manger Royal Park for his warm hospitality. He is a nice gentlemen with a very caring attitude for his in-house guest needs. Overall front office staff was very polite & efficient. I would like to recommend this hotel one of the best economical & well managed property is Gulmarg…..
we stayed 1 night in the royal park
staff was friendly, resto has a nice view, dinner (buffet) was good, brkfst. as well.
Room was a bit tired, but walls are thin (u can hear your neighbours)
they have a nice little garden with a wonderful view.
walking distance to gondola approx 20 min (down) and 30 min back (up)
WiFi ++ !! was good
there are some more hotels around, which look also nice.
overall: OK and would book it again
The Hotel Location is very good.
The climate at Gulmarg was awesome the scenic beauty around the hotel is very good, we can see the Shiv Temple in which Rajesh Khanna ahad shot the song Jay Jay Shiv Shankar. the food here is good.We stayed for 2 nights in the hotel
Amazing room with good heating facilities. Great location. Amazing food. We had the best chinese in kashmir here. Rooms & washrooms are very clean and comfortable. Great option if you are on mid budget need of a hotel in Gulmarg
I vinay kumar agarwal Delhi have visited with my family and my friend vinod ‘ s family on 16th June 2015.location is very beautiful.hotel staff is very Co operative, food quality is also very good, rooms are clean and comfortable.
Royal Park offers outstanding views of the Gulmarg snow covered peaks, ski slopes, market – Perhaps the best view of Gulmarg. The hotel is a bit old but they have taken efforts to maintain it. Rooms are comfortable, and the staff is courteous. Food is average. I would love to stay here again just for its location.
We have visited in march for a day but after being visited many hotels we finalised it because here staff is so good and decent that they initiated the details so good that i hardly resists. Further location was also good. we really missed that we should have stayed more. Yes food was awesome here. Don’t miss it.
We had a 2 night stay in this hotel. the Location of the hotel is fantastic. The staff very well behaved and the food was excellent.
Could not ask for anything better. They also give in-house accommodation to the drivers which i feel is a must for all hotels.
Best place n beautiful view from hotel, Rooms & service is good very helpful staff. Morning breakfast n view from window…superb. Thanks for the staff n their quick surprise birthday arrangement…well done. we where there for 2 nights and enjoyed a lot… 🙂
I was in Gulmarg for two days in and I stayed in this hotel. The Hotel is located near to the main market of Gulmarg so it is easily accessible. The hotel is located on a height so it gives a great view of the whole gulmarg with nice views of snow covered mountains. The hotel staff was quite courteous and very co-operating. The rooms were quite decent with all facilities. They provide electric blanket and heater in rooms so its very great in the -10 degree temperature in night. The food is also very tasty and at nominal cost.
One let down was that the hotel provides only 10 channels in the TV which is quite disappointing as we are used to see a lot of channels while we are at leisure.
This hotel is about 1.5 km from the place where the cable operated car is operated to go at higher altitude.
We enjoyed a lot in Hotel except the TV case.
We have to leave the hotel at am as we were having flight from Srinagar. The hotel restaurant manager was kind enough to provide us the early bf.
Overall enjoyed the stay at the place…..
Beautiful location 10/10. Excellent Service, good food. value for service. Restaurant Person Md. Mushtaq is excellent. i wish i could get 01 more night in the property. They should work out on website more elaborate.
I have visited many places but this hotel has given me long lasting impression.the staff was excellent and the quality of food and service was mind blowing .the management and staff is very friendly with the guest as you feel you are at home .i really love to visited again in future. thank.
My mother, grandma and I were staying in Royal Park for 2 nights.
We really love the view of mountains and valley with white snow from the hotel, especially from the restaurant.
Central heating system was not warm enough, but the hotel provide a portable heater and electric warm blanket. So the room temperature was just nice, even the outside temperature was below freezing.
Food were delicious. I personally like the kashmiri pulao, butter chicken and garlic chicken.
Wifi connection in our room number 1027 was good and fast.
The hotel staff especially Mushtaq and Shakeel were really good, helpful and friendly. During check-out, I left my watch in the room. They picked my watch and hand it over to me. Also during check-out, the hotel personnel served kahwah to us while waiting for our car.
I could say that the service is at par or even better if we compare with large international 5 star hotels in big cities.
Keep the good work, excellent Kashmiri hospitality !
I had booked a tent in Gulmarg and due to bad wether that got cancelled. Our tent owner transferred us to this hotel. Location of this hotel is so strategic at hiltop. Services and food are equally good.
Stayed in September for a night. Staff was courteous. Had a challenge with online booking. I booked one pax instead of 2 and the hotel agreed on free cancelation and as a gesture of hospitality gave me a good price as is checking in late. Room is clean and big, Lobby is big. Didnt try the restaurant but they had a buffet spread and i could see happy faces. View from the lawns of the hotel is amazing overlooking the apharwat hills. Hotel is at a distance from Gondola ride so you will need to hire ponies or walk it up.
Overall good stay and recomended.
The hotel location was a right place overlooking the town. The restaurant was provided with good food. We were served with food we had requested. Our heartfelt thanks goes to Mr. Mohamed Maqbool and Mr. Imran.
From where do I start… Everything and everything just happened so magnificiently… The very first thing is the location, the location of this hotel was heavenly, it was this location which gave the first hand experience of Jannat. Rooms were beautiful and graciously maintained. The food was sumptuous. room service and housekeeping were great. the icing on the cake was the staff there, everybody made all the efforts that we had a great and comfortable stay there… I can never forget their always smiling faces and pleasant personality…. to sum up the hotel made us feel ROYAL in the midst of heavenly snow capped mountains………
We visited Hotel Royal Park in Dec 2015. This was a peak winter with tempratures going upto -16C. We were lucky to have a few rooms available as options that we could chose which could be warm and also provide a good mountain view. The staff was quite patient and made sure that we were made comfortable and chose the room of our choice.
The central heating in the room was highly limited, but the staff provided air blower and room is also accomodated with electric blankets. This is sufficient to keep warm all night. We did not face any issues particularly in the bathroom, water was quite warm during the evenings. However, the waterflow (due to freezing) during morning can be annoying for the wait until it could get resolved.
Food varieties are generally limited to a spread of Chapati (not tandoor), curry, 1 rice item (jeera rice/Veg pulav) and 1 sweet (generally Kheer). Breakfast has a spread of Puri/Curry, Sandwitches, Avallakki and Tea/Coffee. This certainly can be improved in terms of variety and spread.
I had made reservations through Abid (working for Royal choice tours). He was of great help in organizing the complete trip including transport and accomodation Srinagar, Pahalgam and in organizing the tour to Sonamarg. Hats-off to Abid’s attention to detail and guidance at every step which ensured a very memorabe trip with my family.
The number advantage of this property is location. And it is mostly about that. Since located higher than most of the other hotels it gives you a beautiful view of Gulmarg, it’s snow peaked mountains and Shiva Temple. It is approximately 3 kms away from Gondola.
Rooms are good though deluxe rooms are small. Do not expect luxury. Do not compare the place with equally priced hotel of some other more frequently visited holiday destination.
Restaurant is average. Strict timings for breakfast, dinner irrespective of your package is whether AP,MP or EP.
Staff is friendly, soft spoken.
We visited this hotel for one night on 23 Dec 2015…We stayed in one of the suits on ground floor… It has got awesome view of the snow laden mountain….The staff were courteous and help full. The only issue was that the centralised heating was not working but electric blanket and room blower helped us a lot. We will be visiting this hotel again.
Had been to Royal Park in the last week of July 15. The hotel is very nearby to the market. It has an excellent backdrop view. The room was simple and clean. The staff makes up for the average rooms. The staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Its walking distance from the hotel to the Gondala Cable Car ride (should be approximately 1 to 1.5 kms). Food served was quite good.
We are visit the hotel in this October’2015, the property is just beautiful, Their rooms bathrooms, floors all are very clean, all foods are very delicious. Location of this property is just speechless.
Stayed with my mother and son They have me a big comfortable room Which was very warm And The food we good Service courteous Enjoyed the stay Would love to stay again Waiting for February 2016 For my next visit
Amazing hill top location in gulmarg valley!
decent clean room tastefully catered to couple needs… the stay was a memory of life on my honeymoon. the cold weather is well combated by the warm blanket electrically working…! the coridor windows give a grand view of snow capped mountains!!!
the staff is courteous and prompt to help you…
The Gondola is at a walking distance from Hotel Royal Park…
The rooms are good, views are better and the staff is the best.
Speak to the front desk manager to get a room heater…
There is carrom and chess for board games…
Food is good…
The hotel can arrange guides to take you to the Gondola…
One of the best hotels in Gulmarg
Visited with my family…the hotel lobby has a beautiful view of the mountains…the rooms and hotel carpet is little on the older side but otherwise rooms are spacious with all basic amenities…sadly there is no view from any of the rooms only the lobby faces the mountains…the food was excellent.. The best we had in Kashmir…staff is prompt and helpful
The first thing about this hotel is the good location it has. The market being closely and everything else also easily accessible. Great views…. The food being great with good service made our stay a memorable one. They have good facilities even in winter time. We liked the hotel very much!
I had nice stay at Royal Park Hotel with my entire friend with nice view.rooms need to upgrade and restaurant nice and food test good.
Restaurant manager is very helpful and very polite and done is his job very well done by his service.
Best place to stay at Gulmarg. Room are cosy during the winter. Dinning area has view of snow capped mountains. Service is good. Stayed with family and kids. Bed Heaters were a blessing during the winter. Serves Veg Food.
Stayed at Royal Park in december….
The location is very nice and the views are good… Service was ok…
Heating though needs an upgrade but we didnt feel cold though.
The market area is nearby. Nice place in gulmarg with easy accessibility to the market, gondola, pony rides etc…
We stayed at this hotel last week. The best part is the very hospitable staff. U request something and it is promptly delivered. Food is awesome and very reasonably priced. Good ambience. Hotel perched on an elevated location. Excellent views to the pir panjal mountains.
The only concern is the distance of 2km to the gondola. Transportation in gulmarg is a pain w. Reliance on the sledges, ponies and ATVs.
Clean, spacious and nicely located. Staff is nice and friendly. Rooms give an excellent view of the snow clad mountains. Running hot water for 24 hours was welcome. Buffet dinner is good with limited choice.
We stated at this hotel for 2 nights and got a cottage room. This is ideal for couples and small family as rooms are smaller but views and privacy far better. Food is also good and decently priced but please stay here for the amazing views of the valley
I visited few days before and i really appreciate for such a hospitality and a wonderful service. Staff was really good and management was also so curable. Specially, rouf wani (manager) was a wonderful guy. Once again, tnx royal park for serving a royal service. They really deserve ☆☆☆☆☆. All d best.
After the drive up to gulmarg, we needed lunch, hotel a bit of a walk to the town shops, we had room service for lunch. the menu was excellent for choices
& the cost was reasonable . quick service & waiters very helpful.
the rooms were good, bed comfy,good size bathroom.
dinning upstairs, good quality food for dinner & breakfast, again waiter & staff excellent.
the heater & electricity were a problem, electric blanket kept me warm all night. plenty hot water in the bathroom for the morning.
over all good stay ,thanks to management & staff
We had to stay in this hotel for a day and found hotel to be good. Location of this hotel is slightly off the market but the view of Gulmarg from this hotel is fantastic. Staff are very polite and informative. Best part is breakfast has varities and tasty.
Excellent hotel in Gulmarg , the location being a clear advantage.
The hotel staff was courteous, being the peak of Winters the stay was comfortable and warm.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Gulmarg.
This was our third visit to Gulmarg – first stay at Royal Park . Leaving everything else aside , just the location and the views from the garden should clinch the deal for this hotel . Gulmarg can be exasperating at times with the grime , noise and extremely rude pony wallahs . Mercifully , this hotel lies above the filth and clamor ; an oasis of peace .
The highlights would be –
– extremely quick response from the housekeeping – they are at the door before you replace the phone receiver .
– the very pretty garden with extensive views from sunrise to sunset . The hotel is visible from all points of Gulmarg – conversely the entire region is spread out before your eyes from the garden .
– the electric blankets
– excellent meals – buffet or a-la-carte
– very helpful front desk for planning your sights – they do not push/peddle for anything – nothing short of a miracle in a place like Gulmarg .
Do not make a big fuss about the Gondola – it is exactly 1/2 hour walk – downhill going . No need to take any pony .
Hot tip – get up early in the morning and enjoy the sunrise from the lawn , with a hot cup of tea , exactly behind the building – amazing experience every morning – the sky is mostly clear .
According to the teenage son – the wifi was ” fast, free and furious ” .
Was in the hotel for 2 days… really got a gorgeous view of Gulmarg from the room itself… the hotel is located up the hill, probably at the best possible point of view of the entire Gulmarg valley… food was good, room was nicely heated – it was very cold even in June with lots of rain…
It’s located around 3-4 km from the Gondola ride (that’s the main attraction/tourist spot of Gulmarg). There is no car from the ride to take you to the hotel, so you may need to walk quite a distance before you can get a cab.
ATVs to the hotel will cost around 600/person (very expensive in my opinion)
Look outside the room, don’t miss the view. It’s worth it.
Great ambience. Looks and feels homely.
Excellent! We were welcomed with kehwa (must try Kashmiri drink). They responded to each and every request with utmost humility and got the work done. No complaints.
Buffet all the time. The food was great, cutlery was good, service was good. All in all, great experience.
Stayed at the hotel , hotel is very good having a good view from the room. Staff is very courteous. We stayed for two nights . Very good food at the cafe . Breakfast had good choice . Not mucvery close to ye handil, the main attraction . Would love to visit again
What a great location. on top of hill opposite to snow covered mountains . only last rooms have great view from window but you can still hours and hours together looking at the grasping view of snow. it was the top of the world feeling at this point. food service is good.
The hotel was awesome with excellent facilities and good food, friendly staff. I would like to thank my travel consultant Mr Abid Siqid of Royal choice for designing such a wonderful trip for me. He was very helpful and took care of each and every detail so that my stay was comfortable through out. I look forward to another wonderful trip to kashmir with Royal choice.
As the hotel is located on a slightly elevated platform, one can get a stunning view of far stretched peaks and Gulmarg town. Though the rooms are not very spacious the heating arrangement and bed were very cosy which proved to be a saviour in pinching cold of the town. Breakfast and dinner had good spread with some authentic Kashmiri preparations. Room service was also quite satisfactory. Gondola, shops and eateries are available at a walkable distance, which was an additional advantage.
Myself Satish, Stayed here last week with family. The room was very clean and neat with heaters and electric beds are completely working and kept us warm in -16 deg temp. We have tasted great veg food, especially veg curry and varieties of Parota of which we didn’t had this kind of quality and taste earlier. Also the staff are very kind and supportive and highly professional. planning to visit again only because of the kindness and courtesy extended by the people of Gulmarg. its a truely delight to visit gulmarg and stay on Royal Park.
Superb place . lovely picturesque location. Courteous management. Always ready to help ground staff. Good decent food at the restaurant. Made my family’s stay memorable at gulmarg Kashmir. Would strongly recommend to my fellow visitors.
Good location, excellent view of the mountains from hotel. Good room service. Good food, Wi- fi available, enjoyed the stay, Staff is very cooperative, Good lobby, Breakfast and dinner both excellent & Quiet place.
Stayed May 2016
This hotel offers such great view of the mountain range that you can just sit there and enjoy the natural beauty endlessly. We liked almost everything about our stay in this hotel… very well-trained and polite staff, good food, quick service, perfect view. We even asked for our special chai and got it made just as we asked for :)…
The nice hotel in Gurlmarg and good location and view to see the mountain and snow but not clear much. The dinning room so great because you can see the height hill in the second floor . Foods not bad and not variety as you expect. If you want to play snow and sight seeing not concern much with they service recommended this hotel you will enjoy with the best your vocation.
We had our annual office retreat offsite here. We were a group of 36 people from across India. It was one of the most memorable trips. The room service was exceptional. The rooms (mine was a hill side view with snow cladded Mountain) had an breath-taking view of the beautiful hills. The staff made it all the more enjoyable. Would specially like to thank Mr. Abid Sidiq who helped in organizing the trip and made it successful and memorable experience. Mr Abid was really courteous and always ready to take care of every need of our team.
Meals served in package were fresh and there were variety cuisine for breakfast and dinner. Good place to stay. No doubt, the place is surrounded by natural beauty, a good place to enjoy. Its a perfect place to take a break and holiday. I would recommend this place to others.
View from room make me feel damn pleasant ,food quality was awesome . they welcomed us very nicely .it was good.service was perfect .we do get WiFi even in our rooms .I was having long trip ahead so they gave us bread butter as complement
No hassle hotel with excellent amenities – central heating, electric blankets, good service and palatable food. It is 2 km away from the gondola, so plan accordingly. In all, I would recommend this place, if you don’t mind the 2 km distance from the gondola.
Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights…..has an amazing view of the snowladen mountains……the staff is very courteous & polite…..the rooms are good too……food @ their inhouse resturant is also good …..if I am coming back to gulmarg. ….I am staying over here……
