Recent guest reviews
We stayed here for a couple of nights in February 2018. In the two days we spend here - I couldn’t find a single fault with our whole experience. The hospitality was typical Taj - flawless. Right from everyone at the restaurant to the front office, reservations, housekeeping- everyone was so courteous. They would go out if their way to ensure we were well taken care of. My daughter fell ill and everyone at the hotel asked about her. They went to town to get medicines for her. We also spend the morning of our Anniversary there n everyone made it a point to wish - even staff we didn’t have to interact with came up to us to wish us. They even gave us an awesome tasting cake. The property itself is beautiful. Perhaps having the best views in Srinagar. The daal lake looks surreal and peaceful from the rooms. We booked the premium indulgence room. It was having amazing views of the lake. Just sitting in the balcony sipping coffee was an experience. The food was again as awesome as most Taj hotels have it. The chef at dinner time was amazing. He offered to make us whatever we wanted. The staff in the restaurant even suggested a few dishes and they were perfection personified. The kamal kakdi was unlike I have ever had. The meal times were experiences - the staff going out of their way to ensure u have an excellent meal. They took time to talk to people at each table beyond the how is everything question. I cannot appreciate their hospitality enough. I don’t know how Taj does it but hats off to training their staff so well. We left Srinagar to go to a more expensive resort in Gulmarg - but even there you could feel the difference in hospitality. Taj wins hands down.
Provides really nice view to the valley and Dal Lake. Good restaurant. Really helpful service. I would recommend this hotel for anyone travelling with family. Probably the only down side was that it is not in the middle of the city.
Great place to stay. Great food and great view. The service was excellent. The room was very comfortable with heaters and optional ironing boards.The hotel is away from the city and therefore quiet and calm. A lot of space is there to take walks in the mornings and evenings.
We had stay from 30th Jan to 2nd Feb. The hotel is located at the peak and has a great view and fresh air. Our room was upgraded to garden balcony. We had a great time there.The food and the hospitality is simply awesome.Thank you for making our trip special.
The location overlooking Dal Lake is great and we would advise that you take a room with a lake view terrace. You can sit outside and enjoy the view with your beer or coffee. The service was exceptional and the staff made special dishes for us in the restaurant. The residents lounge was not operational when we visited which was a shame.
From the check-in experience the staff make you feel very special and genuinely welcome at the hotel. We had a room with a lake view which was fantastic. The service in the restaurant was great and the staff made special dishes for us. The one area for improvement is the Resident's Lounge which was out of service.
To begin with, like every reviewer has mentioned the view is fabulous! We visited in January and were greeted with the customary Taj warmth which one comes to expect from this extraordinary chain. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable with amazing views. Staff courteous, friendly and efficient. Food really nice and the addition of local specialties like harisa, bakkarkhani, sheermal, etc in the breakfast buffet was thoughtful and well appreciated. Overall an excellent experience marred only by an incident which was not expected, hence the deduction of the final fifth star. We wanted to sit outside our rooms for a while at night to have a true winter experience so we requested for an angithi/ kangri (a traditional charcoal space heater) but were refused by quoting an exorbitant price for it (most hotels / resorts in the hills, even the humbler ones provide it on request free of any charge). That said otherwise it was a great experience and yes if you are curious we still braved the cold and spent half the night out in the cold with our warmies☺️
It's was an amazing experience with our stay with Taj. Pleasant view from the room. Great hospitality. Only hitch as yet I could raise is come what may if any party the booking is done from. There should be pick drop facility from the airport for people saying in the hotel at no cost.
Javeed picked us up from airport , checkinn was smoothly done while sipping kahwah with almonds ! Muddasir and other front desk staff were very attentive and warm for all the requests . Since we were here for celebrating my wife’s birthday a cake was arranged for midnight delivery ! Loved the food in restaurant , bar is not fully functional , had limited collection of liquor ! Thank you everyone for making our stay special 😀
Taj Hotels continue to surprise me. Evertime I think I have experienced the best, they go a notch higher. The property is beautiful. You could easily be in a small, clean idyllic town of Switzerland. The best part however is the Kashmiri hospitality that runs like a serene river. Understated but omnipresent. 1) Starting with Aameir who made us feel as though he was welcoming us to his own house. 2) Manoj and Jagdev in the Coffee Shop. 3) Javed, Humeira and Imran So warm, so pleasant and so welcoming. It’s been one of my best stays
