Very personalized treatment..... Very stunning and tranquil view of the Dal lake..... Enjoyed the local food... Enjoyed the service provided by Ramzan Kaka... Extremely caring treatment by Mr. Ghulan Butt or Dadaji as called by my son Ch. Aryan. I think he is in his late seventies, by seeing his activeness nobody can believe about his age. He is the...

Butt's Clermont Houseboats is a must - the Beatles stayed there, as have many other well-known people over the years. Mr Butt's father bought a set of houseboats from an Englishman leaving the region in the 1930's, and the business has been run ever since. The location is stunning, on Lake Dal looking at the mountains rising out of the... More

We just had 2 nights stay in Srinagar and had found these Shikara's on the net. From the arrival at the airport, to the welcome at the houseboat itself, the ever smiling attendant, the knowledgable shikara person, everyone treated us as a part of a family. The owner Mr Butt is extremely caring and concerned about your comfort, Ramzan Kaka... More

Kashmir is reputed to be 'Paradise on Earth"and we could not agree more after our heavenly stay at Clermont. What makes this place so special is not just its superb location but also the people here who make this place feel almost like home. Its magical sitting in the houseboat overlooking the languid waters of the Dal lake - watching... More

We stayed at Butt's Clermont towards the end of our Kashmir trip and it was the perfect end to a beautiful trip. 1. Location: Butt's HB location is unmatched and is at a serene and tranquil end of the Dal lake, away from all the chaos of Dal gate. Our HB offered an uninterrupted view of the endless Dal lake...

This house boat is located adjacent to its own quiet garden well removed from the mainstream Dal Lake houseboats. The welcome, attention to detail and service are equal to anything my wife and I have ever received. Our 3 night package included 3 meals a day and we were fully consulted on our meal requirements at all times. We chose... More

This house boat is situated in a beautiful location away from all the other houseboats. It is near a very interesting part of Srinagar to walk around, near local markets and a village that is full of life. The house boat is clean, the service friendly and the food excellent. The private gardens adjacent to the house boat are peaceful.... More

Where do I start? Should I start by saying that Mr. Ghulam Butt was the most hospitable person we met on our recent trip to Kashmir? Should I mention that Butt's Clermont is probably the only houseboat with a big garden of its own. Should you choose to stay here, you will be transported to a different era. Time will... More

Kashmir is a place every traveller should visit at least once in their life. Firstly VERY SAFE. The peace, beauty, wild life and people unique. Mr Butt and his team welcome you with open arms. Firstly the location of these houseboats is in easy access to Srinagar centre, but away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The gardens... More
