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

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...
