This was our third visit to Butts Houseboats. Once again it was an excellent experience. From the moment we arrived at Srinagar Airport and were greeted by Shaffi and then everyone at the houseboats. The food is marvellous and in large quantities. Ramzan accompanied us on our hikes to Nuranag and Yasmarg as well as Manasbar Lake. Lassa took us... More

There are only a handful of places in the world that are as magical, special and unforgettable as Butt's Clermont Houseboats. Unlike other houseboats along Lake Dul that are seemingly piled on top of each other, Butt's houseboat is in a private world of its own. Impeccable hospitality match a beautiful and unique setting.

We travelled in India for 3 weeks and Butt's Clermont Houseboat was the highlight of places we stopped. Great staff, amazing boats and a beautiful location really worth a stop. Mr Butts makes you feel very welcome.

We have stayed twice, once in winter 2014, and again in August 2015. There are loads of houseboats to choose from, all less expensive, but none so well located, or quiet. The boats are a step back into a gentler, more elegant age. They are very comfortably furnished and one one side there is a lovely, historic garden and on... More

These are by far the most beautiful house boats on Dal Lake. The Mughal garden on the shoreline is breathtaking, a wonderful place to take tea or read. The owner is utterly committed to your well being and laughter- he is a remarkable man. They were also kind enough to throw us a dinner party for my friends who arrived... More

Ghulam ji's hospitality was amazing! The wazwan was out of the world and the warmth with which they treated us was far out. Everything about this place was superb! Definitely recommend staying here for a classic, memorable and quiet houseboat stay. It's location at upper dal lake also makes it an ideal choice

Mr. Gulam Butt the owner of the houseboats and his entire staff are very friendly, helpful and courteous. Our family of 7 (5 adults and 2 kids) stayed in Firdaus the largest houseboat with three rooms in the first week of June (2nd to 5th June, 2015). All the rooms in the houseboat were good, with an uninterrupted view of... More

It felt like being in the 1940s, with great views and food both plus's. The drawback: look down as you shower and see that your water is going straight into the lake. So is your toilet waste. Mr Butt is a charmer, as are all the staff. Of course there are one million Indian Army personnel in Srinagar, so being... More
