Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very well managed and helpful staffs. simple system to enter and exit. Better to book online in advance. Food in the nearby canteen was not great. ( Annapoorna)

You get entry batch for Matha ka mandir and Helicopter booking also can be done in this complex.

Solar powered water heaters means , it takes time for heating and pls plan accordingly.

Booked room in 60 days advance and rooms are kind of average. However location of property and all other things around it - is great.

Yatra parci counter & tatkal heli booking counter is inside Niharika Bhawan. If you have stayed here, you get access to clock room - just get a receipt while making check-out.

Parking is available for check-in guest. Restaurant is inside main complex but no room service.

Lift is available to access your rooms.

Niharika bhawan is undoubtedly the best place to stay in katra. I've stayed here around 10 times atleast and have been to almost all categories of rooms they have. In addition to being pocket friendly, this place is easily accessible in case you wish to step out for food (which you have to in almost all other hotels in katra) and absolutely safe irrespective of whether you're sleeping there in night or away for dharshan with your door locked.

Definitely the most recommended one!

Room Tip: Ask them to allocate a room in Phase I, if available. These rooms are facing the trikuta parvat.

This is a very nice Hotel complex operated by Shri Mata Vaishnao Devi Shrine Board. It is adjacent to Katra bus stand.
I went there with my family in December 2022. We stayed in a four bedded AC room. We had booked room online 2 months ago. You need to book the rooms online as soon as opening starts, or you might not get room.
Niharika complex is very clean and well maintained. It has a dedicated restaurant-"Siddhidatri", which offers buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner at reasonable rates. The food is tasty.
Service is not so good. Our room heater was broken, but the receptionist made no sincere effort to make it run.
Complex also has a Annapurna bhojanalaya which offers food items at very less rate.
Niharika complex also has counters for Yatra Parchi and Helicopter booking.
I am enclosing some photos of 4 bedded AC Room.
Tip: If you are traveling from Katra Railway station to Niharika by Auto, ask them to drop you at Katra Bus stand. Fare to bus stand is Rs 160. But if you say Niharika, fare will be 200. Actually, Niharika complex is just adjacent to Katra Bus Stand.

We regularly stays in this place in every visit to mata rani. Best place to stay and having very much renovated rooms, ac, heaters and all facilities inside.

In the same premises you can make current heli booking, room or dormitory at katra, bhawan, adhukuwari etc and make donations etc.

Yatra parchi can also be made there itself. All eatry and taxi are nearby.

One of the best accomodation in Katra. This is no less than any hotel. All facilities are there inside the room. We had booked 4 bedded room and it had all amenities. Best part of this place is, we have counters for helicopter booking, room booking counter for Bhawan, RFID issuing counter all within the premises. Bhojanalay is also there. Location is excellent and easily accessible. Not far from Banganga check post. Overall best place to stay in Katra. Booking has to be done through shrine board website, else current booking will have long queue.

We only selected this hotel as it was just opposite the helicopter booking office. Unfortunately, even after standing in que at 4 AM in the morning, we were not able to get the helicopter tickets. Else, one can ignore to stay here. There are a lot of other hotels in Katra for a comfortable stay with good staff to give you a proper service. You'll have to move in and out your luggage on your own. Thankfully the property had a lift. The person sitting on the reception seemed to be owning not only the property but the whole of Katra. When i asked him that i wanted to check the room before booking it, he gave me a rude look and said what there to look at the room. Also the service staff were very casual and will not come in help when you need them. I had asked for an extra mattress which was not guaranteed. But later when i open the door after an hour, there was a mattress lying outside my room. I was not sure if it was for me as no one informed me or came to put it in the room.

Also about the helicopter, please try and book it in 60 days advance if you can. You'll only get the tickets on the counter in case of any cancellations. The maximum tickets that were given on the day i was there was around 10 to 15. So if there's a long que, just get ready and start your journey to Mata's darshan. FYI, the counter opens at 6 AM and people will start to get in the que from 3 AM.

Conveniently located at the Katra bus stop. So you can get autos at the counter for both Ban Ganga and the Railway Stations.

Also all facilities like Yatra Parchi counter, ATM, Bhojanalaya, current helicopter ticket counter, free Cloak Room etc are within the campus.

Clean and hygienic place when you compare it to the price you are paying.

In short, if you are in Katra for a night or two, this is the place to choose.

This is a one point solution of you are planning to visit the shrine, Yatra parchi, helicopter ticket, from booking at bhawan everything can no done here. Try to take room here first then try the outside hotels, the hotels will always say that you will not get service at Niharika but that is not true.

There are rooms which can accommodate 2 people and bigger rooms for 4 people. But extra folks can adjust, as rooms are bigger. Better inform the no of folks at the reception so that they can help with extra bedding.

Clock room is available for free to all the devotees staying in any shrine board property, however you should not leave expensive items such as Laptops, Cash and mobiles in the clock room facilities
