I checked in and was given a room on first floor. The outside view was good but the room had several problems. For starter the room was not warming up i.e. the room heater was not working properly. Then the phone was not working and further hot water was also not coming.. Hotel staff tried to fix them up but could not and ultimately my room was changed. Though everything in this room was ok, there was no outside view as the room was at the back side.
On ambience, though the hotel is peaceful and staff is cordial, the furniture and interior is quote old and need overhauling. Carpets are also old and dusty. I had breakfast only in the hotel and did not like it. In all the hotel was not upto the expectation..

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the backside

we stayed in royal park from 21st march for 2 nights the location is awesome and people are very helping. only drawback is their food. its very far off from the main attraction of gulmarg, i.e. gondala cable car. we have to hire sledges to reach out there as the vehicle hired from srinagar is not allowed there. overall the hotel is very good with good co-operative staff.

We group of four including our parents had chosen Royal Park Gulmarg for 3 nights stay from 23 rd March 2014 after a thorough search in several travel blogs.This was an wonderful amazing experience.We took flight from kolkata.They even enquire about our health and any type assistance if required when we were on the way to Gulmarg. After reaching they welcomed us with warm smile and offered us a suite with amazing breath taking 180 degree view.We become spellbound. It was large very clean decorated with all modern facilities all in working condition. Outside temperature was minus 5.Can you believe? We watched snowfall from our room with large windows covered ourselves under thermal blankets.And moreover central heating was working. Even keeping in mind about the health condition of our parents they provided extra room heater.Sunrise watched from our hotel was amazing. Its situated in best location in Gulmarg. Car reaches at doorstep of reception . We enjoyed kashmiri khawa and other foods very much . Whenever we called room service or house keeping even in odd hours they took prompt response. Later we came to know even Mr.Bill Clinton with Hillary Clinton shared the same in 2006.
I am personally very satisfied with the service and the warm behaviour of all staffs.
Specially I thank Mr.Irshad Baba for his all time assistance, service and his warm helping attitude.He really knows what hospitality is.He even guided me to get very good hotel and car in pahelgam when I was misguided and saved like a family member.
If you are really looking for comfort good location great food ambience just go to Royal Park.

I stayed with family in this hotel on 22nd March andThe hotel is located in a very beautiful location and that is the only advantage of this hotel.
We got very small rooms though we booked for higher category.
Services are really bad - To get drinking water in room, we had to call 4 times. For whatever you need, you have to remind multiple times.
Food - Pathetic food. In the dinner buffet, all guests of the hotel were so upset that each guest raised the concern on quality of food and eventually they had to change the food.
I would say if you want to eat good food and have good services do not choose this hotel however if you want good location you can choose this hotel.

Room Tip: If at all you stay take a suite room.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 Night i.e. 2nd March. It is a good hotel. Good ambience with large and impressive reception area. Check- in and check - out were smooth. Room (Double Dx) is quite spacious. Every room has a large window for good view of the mountains. We stayed in room no 1005 which is a corner room and has windows on two sides, so that much better. Very good staff. Housekeeping does prompt work. Good food reasonably priced and good choice in menu. Very good central heating system. Were provided with electric blankets for each bed and a room heater which was quite effective. Though the room was covered with feet’s of snow all around and had two large glass windows we didn’t feel cold at night. Room heater had to be put it off at mid night.
Restaurant was also very cozy. Both buffet and ala cart was available. We took ala cart dinner. Food is less spicy and reasonably priced.
The only minus is that as compared to other hotels it is at a distance and at a height. But you have a view of the whole of Gulmarg from the reception lounge as well as room. It is about 2 kms from gondola and walking up to that is difficult especially in winter when whole place is full of snow. Sledge has to be used. I feel sledge is difficult for elderly. Younger persons can go use it easily as well as go walking.
A point of caution: be careful of the sledge valas. They are quite sticky type. During the summer months the same people run ponies.

Room Tip: corner room has two large windows which giver much better view.
