    Milind Pandey

    New delhi

    Milind's 8 days trip to Jammu

    Kashmir is the beauty we fell in love with. There is no doubt about that. Let's review the arrangements. Driver: Our driver Muzzaffar uncle was an awesome guy. Though he took us to showrooms where we bought things a tad higher but he was knowledgeable, polite, and helping. Overall he was good. Hot
    els: 1. Golden Tulip (Srinagar): A good hotel in terms of infrastructure and food. 2. Royal Park(Gulmarg): Though the location is fantastic. The infrastructure was pathetic. My wife almost got burnt due to a leakage of hot water in their bathrooms. Staff behavior was excellent. If they fix their infrastructure it would be the best hotel. 3. Pahalgam Retreat(Pahalgam): Worst hotel. They served a half-cooked chicken because they were busy preparing for dinner. I would request TRAVEL HOME to stop dealing with them. They told us to manage because they are in the mountains. But at the same time, they mentioned their amenities like any other hotel. JUST STOP DEALING WITH THEM. They will reduce your reputation. A piece of advice: Don't listen to everything your driver says. While our driver was right most of the time. He made us get guides and ponys when it was not needed. Overall he was good. This is not a complaint against him. Most of the drivers will do such things. The travel home team was nice and responsive. Check-ins and checkouts were hassle-free. Just stop dealing with Pahalgam retreat and check the hotel infrastructure which you deal with.
