We stayed in the hotel for 1 night. It was a very good and relaxing stay in the hotel. The hospitality and other aspects were really a class apart. Would recommend everyone going to Vaishnodevi to stay at White Hotels.

Pick this hotel without any doubts as this hotel possibly the best option for comfortable stay in Katra. Valley view room is too good for pleasant stay; room is spacious and offers good view. The hotel provides efficient shuttle service to market. They welcomed us with pooja thali, traditional way. Good service and good food. Will stay again in this hotel.

Dear Ms. Pinki, The stay was amazing. I had a wonderful time. Mr. Ashish Anand and Chef Mr. Sanjay Jamwal took amazing care of my family and me. I was told by the entire Team White I interacted with that GM's outstanding leadership has made all this possible so kudos to him. Wonderful work Team White ... Glad I made a shift from Country Inn to your hotel where I have stayed during all my visits in last 6 years and I have a gold customer status but Mr. Anand and Chef Mr. Jamwal ensured that I do not have to look back . I now think you give great value for money and have a wonderful location to offer. It was very sweet of Chef Mr. Jamwal to take my family for a tour of the kitchen to show us the high standards you maintain and my family was very impressed as Chef Mr. Jamwal ensured that ever doubt was cleared. Last but not the least, the food prepared and the hospitality extended by Team White was amazingly delightful. Keep up the great work! Keep Smiling Team White ... :) Look forward to meeting the much talked about GM in my next visit in few months from now. Thank you!

We stayed at this hotel in March 2014 and found it an absolutely fantastic hotel in all respects. The room size is qulite large and offered a great view of the mountains. The llobby is very well done with plenty of sofas and places to sit and simple but elegant decore. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant food is excellent. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to all our friends and relatives. The garden on the backside of the hotel is worth a leisurely stroll.

Dear Pinky Thank you very much for making the stay extra special this time around. This mail was long overdue as we got caught up with the city life. You made us feel more like family with your bright smile and warm exchange despite your busy schedule. And we really appreciate that. Your thoughtful GIFT finds it's place of pride in our Puja room. I am sure you will always do well in every sphere and I do hope we shall continue with this association.

Dear Mr. Vivek Sharma Hello! We stayed at your property between 07th and 08th Dec and occupied room#322 and 323. Our stay was excellent and we found the hotel to be very good. The staff is very warm, the service is great, the menu (under chef Jamwal) is extraordinary and the rooms are very nice. The way Mr. Pankaj Mehra handled our reservation and stay was very professional and we are bound to come back to the property every time we visit Mata Vaishna Devi. We are also bound to recommend this property to our friends and family during their visits to Katra. Thanks once again for making our stay wonderful and for congratulations for having/maintaining such a beautiful property!

The food is simply superb. The staff hospitality is extraordinary. The car shuttle service is prompt. Beyond Expectations........ If in Katra, "The White" is the place to be in.

White Hotel has been my most favorite hotel since I have been visiting Maa Vaishnodevi every month since last 5-6 years. To start with ambiance, this hotel has perfectly projected the spiritual experience of stay in holy town Katra. On arrival you are treated with Puja Tikka and Holy scarf. Staff is very friendly taking care of all your requirement. Chekin purpose is very swift and you are escorted to you room. Rooms are clean with good view of valley. Lobby area is huge having comfortable sofas with LCD. Dining area is lively with ample staff. Food is delicious which we tried at Dinner and Breakfast. Gym and Spa is great and well manged by Mr Narinder who has become good friend of mine. DM Mr Vikramjeet Singh is very gentle person and take care of your choices every month. Lawns are great with good view. On the whole you feel pampered after the tedious journey of Maa Vaishnodevi.

Great rooms, superb valley view, excellent house keeping, tasty food, and more,,,,,,,, A great place to stay if you go to Darshan of Maa Vaishnodevi. We had a stay during March-2013. They provide to and from travel facility by a new Innova Car from Jammu Air port. They also provide free local transportation as many times you wish. Staff is very cooperative and level of service is also high. We had a classic experience. This was the third experience in the same hotel and I will continue staying whenever, I visit there.

Hi Team White Hotels Katra!! My wife, my son and I visited Vaishno Devi from Pune, from May 27th 2013 to May 29th 2013 and I chose to book your hotel only after surfing the internet. I must say I did not make a wrong choice. I am really delighted to let you know that right from the time our taxi arrived at the hotel until our departure, we had a great experience, beginning with a traditional Indian Welcome ("Aarti" and "Tikka"). That was excellent!! The staff was very warm, friendly, courteous and professional in their approach and always smiling. The room was fantastic, with excellent view, very spacious & clean, the washroom was spick and span with running hot water. On the day we had to travel to the Helipad, the hotel staff made sure they had a car ready for us which dropped us to the helipad. A car was also promptly despatched the next day to pick us up as soon as we completed our Devi Darshan. Last but not the least, your’s is a truly international class hotel with great service, friendly staff, delicious food and neat, comfortable rooms. Hope you maintain this in the future and I look forward to stay at White Hotel again on our next visit to Katra (whenever we plan one)  !! Thanks and regards,

Dear Sir, We were booked in White Hotel Katra, for our first trip as couple within a week after marriage. We stayed there for 1 night and 2 days in suite, but what an experience it was! Its a supreme hotel in terms of hospitality, location and interiors (refreshing life size paintings and sovienier shops at the lower floor).The property (and most of its rooms) overlook the Vaishnavdevis hill shrine and one can see Helicopter rides from the comfort of the room itself! Complimentary pick up and drop facility from Bhavan and back was very helpful as the walk up and down took its toll on us. The food is good.(not a memory for the taste buds though!) It is indeed the best hotel in Katra.

Hello Vivek and Pinki, It was true pleasure meeting you all there at Katra. We really liked your hospitality and the hotel it self. The warmth and the way you treat your patrons is beyond some ones expectations. One of my family friend who live in Varanasi are visiting Katra some time in June and I asked them to stay with you. I will certainly stay at your facility when ever I am in Katra. In the mean time if by ant chance any of you happen to be in the US please give me a call, I will be happy to meet you. I live in Los Angeles area.

Dear Mr Salaria Ji, On my ninth visit to Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine between 16 Nov 2012 to 18 Nov 2012, it was my proud privilege to stay in your hotel in room no 232 for the first time. My experience is worth mentioning to keep your staff in best motivated spirit............ Serving the Shri Mata Vasishno Devi Shrine Devotees in the true spirit of SEWA at the reception of White Hotel By Ms Rajni in a traditional way touched my wife and me so much that I am tempted by my very inner implulse to write this mail to say our thanx and convey our appreciation for the gesture shown by the management and staff of the Hotel for the comfort of Guests. I shall be failing in my duty if if dont put accross the appreciable customer care devoted and dedicated behaviour full of professional effeiciency of your staff, the names I remembered... Vikramjeet Singh/Ashish/Pinki/Mohit and Rajni. Food served was delicious and had variety. The Hotel is well planned from the architectural angle / maintenance/ Comfortable beds / Linen used and is spacious. You should be proud of your staff and yourself that you are maintaing a world standard Hotel at place like Katra which is no less than any other Hotel in India and abroad. SKY IS THE LIMIT. THERE IS ALWAYS A SCPOE OF IMPROVEMENT. With Best Wishes and Warm Regards wish to stay in your Hotel during my next visit.

Dear Sir, Good Day. It was a pleasure staying at the White Hotels (Katra). The hotel has an amazing location & a very soothing atmosphere. The approach road to the hotel is simply the best with the most wonderful flowers & greenery I have ever seen. The ambiance of the hotel lobby, restaurants & the garden area is simply amazing. The rooms of the hotel are very spacious & very simple in decor & fully equipped. Food & service has surely been the most strong point of the hotel. The food at the restaurant was absolutely mouth watering with a vast variety in choice & different type of cuisine. The breakfast at the buffet also had the best taste & a good layout with all appropriate required dishes. I would give my special thanks to Mr. Vivek Sharma (GM) for managing the property & hospitality in the best manner & making me comfortable from day one when my booking was made. My special thanks to Mr.Vikramjeet (Duty Manager), who has been the most wonderful managers, I have ever come across. He has been on his toes providing me the best of the service & making me feel comfortable from the time of my arrival at the hotel. His immense help & guidance helped me to get the best darshan of Maa Vaisnodevi with my 2 kids & entire family. I would like to thank the entire working staff especially the restaurant & kitchen staff for providing us with the best & timely food. Lastly I would give a very big thanks & compliment to Mr.Salaria for making & managing such a beautiful property. I wish you all the best for your new upcoming hospitality projects & I am sure that you would continue the same hospitality & service with new innovations. Thanking You,

Dear Vivek and Pinky, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the White Hotels- Katra Vaishno Devi. Unfortunately due to our shortage of time we couldn't make most of the hotel facilities. I would like to take this opportunity to thank your team for their hospitality but I would like to specificically, sincerely thank Arjun. Arjun is a member of your reception team I believe. Could you please forward our gratitude to him for all his assistance in our difficulty after we checked out of your hotel.He was excellent and we are most obliged to him. Kind regards,

I must make a special mention of MR.ANKUSH at the reception because not only did he handle our requests & billing very professionally but he did everything with a smile and made us feel extremely comfortable. All together a pleasant stay and look forward to visiting again. Regards

I am really thankful to all of you espesially you, Mr.Mehra and Ms.Saniya for all the support and best of hospitality. Thanks and Regards .

Ensuring that I get the best experience for my family is one of my top most priorities while selecting my holiday partners esp hotels where I stay. With this in mind - I set out browsing through the various 5 star hotels in Katra and came across the White Hotels. Photographs and reviews of the hotels were okay - but I had heard little about the White Hotel chain - yet decided to take a chance and chose them over their competitor - Country Inn & Suites by Carlson. What helped me make the choice were few personal factors such as : (1) Friendliness of staff dealing with me over phone (I am based out of Hong Kong) (2) Flexibility - in terms of complimentary pick up and drop to the Katra market (3) Openness - in terms of letting me know of the options that I could opt for i.e a normal room over a suite etc. Well with all of the above - I chose to stay at the White Hotels and my "moment of truth" arrived when I saw the Suite (Room no 210) that was on offer. Wow ... what a view it had. Off one window - the entire Shrine Mountain and off the other window .... the expanse of the mountain ranges (lush green after the monsoons). The size of the room and the appointment of the same in terms of furnishings - was indeed very impressive. I fell for it and my family loved me for the same. For 4 days .... we stayed at the hotel and except for visiting the Katra market ... once a day... we spent most of the time at this wonderful hotel ... which has lush lawns and breathtaking views of the mountain ranges.... Add to that ... they have a 'heli pad' - with a helicopter perched there. Enough to have my 15 year old son excited. We must have taken atleast 50 photos and videos around this center of attraction...... Now on the restaurant......... fantastic food.......... not the routine Paneer dishes (which also were very very good) - but the more exotic stuff like "lotus root" based dishes....... the soup (lemon corriander), the lacha parathas (my son's favourite) and my missi rotis.... the south indian breakfast stuff ..and the gujarati theplas..... apart from the Ghobi parathas......... I can go on and on..... but would sum up saying....... excellent chefs in the restaurant..... Now on the hotel front office staff..... all very very courteous.... and well picked by the management I must say..... The duty manager (forget his name - but a Sardarji) - was impeccable in his mannerisms and I provided him a first hand feedback of my experience on the eve of my departure... On the whole....... a great holiday..... a great darshan (lucky to get one way helicopter despite foggy weather)...... and surely a great place to relax in Katra and enjoy fantastic hospitality...... All of the above...... written from my heart......

We went to Maa vaishno Temple a year ago and were in two minds while selecting our hotels because there were two 5 star properties in our mind : 1.Country Inn & Suites 2. The White hotel Katra. And as it was our second visit we selected the white as our hotel and we were right to choose white hotel. The previous time we visited katra we stayed in Contry Inn but we wanted & preffered to go for a change . We were really very happy with this hotel. Just a perfect 5 star , u can get luxurious comfort,ease,best food in katra if you are a food lover and most important it was just in the beautiful midst of katra. So i would say a must stay place if you visit katra. And even katra is a must visit place in a lifetime. Stayed October 2010, traveled with family

K/A: Mr. Vivek Sharma We take this opportunity to appreciate your Hospitality experienced during our stay at Katra. Few noticeable points need special mention: 1. Front Office Management did a good job for speeding our check in as quick as desired. 2. Rooms were clean and well appointed. 3. Food was very well managed in a way that all 300 + people got it fresh and piping hot, no waiting/queues made it a pleasant experience. Overall efficient and courteous staff gave us all 'feel at home' spirit, making our yatra memorable. We would look forward to more such experiences in our future programmes in your Hotel. Thanks & Congrats to you and your Team. .

We booked this hotel on the spot. we heard about this hotel from various sites specially Trip advisor. They ranked this hotel No #1. That is really No1... I really thanks to trip advisor team. We have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs. But Services offered by this hotel is unbeatable. Their Pickup and drop facility (free of cost) any where in Katra any number of time. is awesome. It is the perceptive and friendly service that makes it worthwhile staying in this small family-run hotel. The owners and staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home. In the afternoon, the staff would bring out snacks and coffee for guests. Even my family, who did not stay in the hotel, was received with open arms and exceptionally generously when they came to visit. T Food is really good and dellious. Steam Bath and Sauna Bath is complementary in this trip. My family really enjoyed. After Yatra, my family was tired and they got relaxed after taking Steam Bath. I Really recommend this hotel to other people. ... .

My wife and I were visiting Vaishno Devi from Toronto, Canada from Nov 30th 2010 to Dec 1st 2010 and I chose to book this hotel only on Nov 29th after surfing the web. I must say I did not make a wrong choice. Right from the time our taxi arrived at the hotel until our departure, we had a great experience, beginning with a traditional Indian welcome of an "aarti" and "tikka" on the forehead. An excellent touch!!! The staff was very warm, friendly, courteous and professional in their approach and always smiling. The room was fantastic, very spacious with a clean, gleaming washroom with running hot water. Since we were already late for our helicopter to Sanjhichat, the hotel staff made sure they had a car ready for us as soon as we had a quick shower and dropped us to the helipad. A car was also promptly dispatched to Banganga to pick us up as soon as we completed our Yatra. The buffet breakfast next morning (which was included in the package) was, to say the least, AWESOME!! This is a truly international class hotel with great service, friendly staff, delicious food and neat, comfortable rooms. Hope you maintain this and I look forward to stay at White Hotel again on our next visit to Katra. .

The stay was very pleasant and peacefull" "It was a memorable stay in 'The White Orchid, Katra" suggested by your Ludhiana representative Mr Ankit . The room was wonderful with "the beautiful valley view" and the small rain in the night added icing on the cake on the nature?u0092s beauty. The hotel management provided each & everything, which was committed in the package. Right from the room service boy to the Duty Manager, everyone was soft spoken and supportive and taken care even for the minute things for the comfort of my family. The drivers provided very good information about the Katra town & regarding Mata Vaishno Devi Darshan. An unforgettable event of my life. "

I have great faith in Mata rani and thus after my marriage I took my wife to visit Mata Rani. I have seen the white orchid hotel at Mumbai and thus I chose to stay in Orchid Katra. As this is an orchid group hotel the interiors of the hotel were fabulous. The hotel is slightly away from the main market and bus stand but the hotel provides you free drop and pick up for anywhere in katra. My room was very spacious and had the best furnishings. The view from the room window was of the valley. From the lawn of the hotel one can see the road leading to mata rani dham also known as "bharown". From the lawn you can also see the helicopters taking off for the "sanjhi chhat". We liked the view so much that we asked them to serve breakfast in the lawn and enjoyed it all long. The food was great! The vegatbles found in these mountains are very pure and they have their rich and natural taste, which is probably not possible to get in citites like Mumbai. Although I do not enjoy the veggie stuff much but the veg in here was delicious. the hotel staff was very well mannered and helpful.

I stayed in The White Orchid along with office colleague for an annual meeting. Though the trip was for official purpose , the hospitality we received was magnificent . The hotel front lobby was decorated luxuriously with lot of space. We stayed in a very spacious room with a wonderful mountain view from the huge glass window . Once you see the snow peak early in the morning even without getting out of your bed will definitely make your day. Every day we started from a well equiped gym. After an hour of work out in the gym we really enjoyed the lavish spread in the break fast table. Our conference hall was well equiped with a very good quality of audio-visual system. We went for Mata Baisno Devi temple & started very early at 5 A.M, even at that odd hour we found the tea ready for us. Besides the neatly mentained decor of the hotel the most attractive & beautiful was the hospitality from the entire hotel staff. Over all stay experience has really touched our heart & we are already planning the next annual meeting at The White Orchid.
