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

My friends and i stayed for just under a week at Mr.Butt's, or as we came to know him, Gulam's boathouse. We had the most amazing time! The service was exception and the views out of this world. They were very helpful with offering us tips for the best shops, museums and restaurants, and advising us how not to pay... More

We spend some wonderfull days at Butt's Houseboats. It is a fantastic place and the service is warm and very polite. The boat is old, but very charming and pittoresque and the surroundings is unforgetteable.

If you want to stay in a house boat....this is the Place!! Its private and serene, unlike other houseboats where you have no privacy, its loud and boats are stacked next to each other. The owners and the staff have been around for decades and know what hospitality mean. Its a true Kashmir experience with its own Mughal garden. If... More

From the moment we arrived at Butt's Clermont Houseboats, we knew we had chosen the perfect location for a relaxing peaceful long weekend escape from Delhi. Mr Butt greeted us as though we were long lost friends, and we left 3 days later feeling exactly that. Mr Butt's gracious and humble hospitality set the tone for a wonderful weekend aboard... More

The other reviews are not overstating the experience here. Yes, it's more expensive that the average houseboat, but what you are paying for is a unique experience. It is not your ordinary luxury of aircon and minibars, but the luxury of personalised old-fashioned service, and a most beautiful location away from all the other houseboats. It's a bonus that you...

The location is perfect. The only houseboat [HB ]with its own Mughal gardens and a place to walk out of the boat. Not only can you walk around the gardens and have breakfast there but you could stroll out till the Hazratbal Mosque as well. Well every word of people who have already written so much about this is place... More

The picturesque location, historic boats and wildlife make this special. What makes it superlative is the unparalleled hospitality and warmth of the Butt family and the staff. I cannot speak highly enough of the owners Gulam and Mansoor Butt, as well as Kaka who looks after your every need with a quiet efficiency and smile. My kids were engrossed by... More

Butts clermont houseboat located in upper Dal lake, which is away from the main commercial and crowded part . Very peaceful & serene environment. A big Lush green garden at the entrance of the houseboat. We two families stayed here for 2 nights in the month of May, 2014. Staying at Butt's Clermont houseboats is a unique experience not to...
