Recent guest reviews

The best stay ever at Katra. The hotel property is so nicely placed and so much good in ambiance that you would start loving your stay in first couple of hours. The food, staff, room service, swimming pool, kid ride area, everything is extra ordinary awesome. I loved the stay. Only one thing the restaurant is a little bit costly but with the ambiance that they provide you will be ready to pay that.

The Trip to the Temple was made easy and Peace full due to the extraordinary service rendered by the hotel.They ensured that we were picked up on my return from Banganga @ 4 AM ,Organised for some light Lunch even though it was passed the lunch hour . A clean,green hotel and kudos to their Manager Arun and their team for taking care of us .Keep up the good work Team Country Inn.

I visited the hotel through a IRCTC Vaishno devi package and totally agree that no other hotel in katra is better than country inn..the rooms are too good,awesome lawns,swimming pool etc. The staff was the best,they were very polite and take full care of the guests. Food quality was also very NICE . TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ALL FOR YOUR UPCOMING VISITS

Nice resort, good food, nice staff, Lush green garden, every thing is fine Except location, 7 kms far from bu s stand area, kids can enjoy jhoolas and indoor games as well, swimming pool is also scenic

We stayed here for 2 nights, for our visit to Mata Vaishno Devi mandir. It's located on the outskirts of Katra town, about 20 mins drive by car to Katra. Hotel is about 1 hour from Jammu airport. Hotel had booked a cab for me from local Jammu taxi Association, from airport to hotel. Coming to the hotel, room size is good, with comfortable bed. Bathroom is a little compact, but laid out well. Room has a fan as well, apart from AC, so that if needed, one can just use fan, if AC is not required due to cold weather outside. Room service was good, and all the food items we had were very tasty. No complaints about the food at all. You get 2 complimentary water bottles daily (1 litre size), which is good, when compared to other hotels I have stayed in. One drop & pickup to and from Banganga/helipad is provided complimentary from the hotel. Few improvements can be 1) to make water pressure in bathroom consistent, 2) provide an in-room safe, 3) Conditioner in toiletries

An extremely beautiful and superbly maintained property. Well mannered and prompt service staff. Smooth check in, and smooth c/o. Food options were little limited but I am sure they will improve in this.

Country Inns & Suites by Carlson @ Katra is an excellent property with huge landscape garden, childrens play area, well maintained swimming pool, ayurvedic massage center, clean & plush rooms, very clean bathrooms, excellent staff & service. I stayed at this property during my Vaishno devi trip on 29th Oct 17 & was impressed with services that this Hotel provided to me. First of all I was upgraded to Business class room from Dexule room for free. The property is located about 7KM from Katra but they provide complimentary services of (free) Shuttle to Vaishno Devi yatra starting point & also assist with getting the Yatra registration slip in the Hotel itself. The checkin / checkout was smooth. I also had food at the Maple restaurant within the Hotel, which was delicious. In-room dining experience was also awesome, they pretty quick with it. My driver also gave a very good feedback about the arrangements that this hotel does for them (bathrooms / sleeping areas/rooms for drivers). All in all an excellent experience with Country Inns & will definitely visit again when in Katra.

The hotel is a little before Katra if you are approaching from Jammu, about 7.0kms. Away from the congestion and noise of the city. If you are visiting for a pilgrimage to Vaishnodevi, there is a complimentary pick and drop facility from hotel to the gate from where the climb to the temple starts. The pick up drop is available 24 hours. if you are for a vacation, this place is nestled among trees and is very quiet and peaceful. rooms are nice and reasonably priced. Facilities are good. service is good. all vegetarian hotel. no bar

As a world traveller I am exposed to varying degrees of service, hospitality and staff couteousness. This hotel had a perfect combination of staff, location, ambience and guest assistance at all facets of the stay. Something unique where one is not overwhelmed by the staff but perfect attention is paid to one's comfort.

It is a great hotel located about 7 kms from Katra - they provide a free shuttle service to drive you to and from Katra for your yatra to Vaishno Devi Great service and a great hotel!! We found it very convenient and had a great darshan at Vaishno Devi!!
